Hi loves! I’m sure most of you are familiar with the inversion method. It’s a hair massage technique that involves you massaging your head with your head facing downwards for about 3 minutes. This is basically to get your blood to flow to your scalp and help growth. I’ve seen tons of YouTube videos on it, some girls use oil, some don’t. I don’t use oil, I normally just massage my scalp (gently) with my head facing down for anywhere from 2 to 3 minutes. Since I normally do it prior to going to bed, I then go about wrapping or rolling my hair (which is part of my nightly routine). As I’ve said before it’s important to have a nightly hair care routine, because your ends need to be babied.
And now for my hair update! In case you didn’t know (odds are you don’t know) I have eczema on my scalp, along with other areas on my skin. My eczema last year this time was much worse, and I ended up having to cut off a portion of my hair that was just dead. It was a great decision, and with the proper medical care (creams, shampoos and a bunch of doctor appointments) my hair started to grow back really nicely. But since one of my creams is oil based, it leaves my hair really oily. So lately after it starts getting oily, I ended up wetting it and doing Bantu knots on my hair. I don’t know if I’ve said this (I probably have) due to my hair type I only get my hair washed, blow dried and flat ironed by my hair stylist every two weeks. So since my appointments are every two weeks, after it gets oily (which is about a week after I get it done) I just Bantu knot it. My growth has been pretty good, and I’m pleased with it. Also the Bantu knots give it a nice style that I can manipulate very easily. I’ll post a hair length check picture once my curls fall. I’m doing a hair length check soon because natural hair is a two-way street. It either can completely damage your hair if you don’t know what you are doing or it can just be absolutely beautiful and your hair will grow really long. I suggest you try a variety of things and products to find out what really works with your hair. I hope that my hair tips in my other blogs help!
