This post is beyond late in catching up with my 6 month trial of the Inversion Method. I think the delay reflects how I feel about it. I can’t even tell you how much time I’ve spent putting off writing this conclusion. Here it is, better late than never, I guess! So if you’re good with hints, you’ll realise I’m not exactly enthusiastic about all of this…
So just a quick recap on what the Inversion Method is since it’s been so long since I wrote about it last. Here’s a pin I found which describes it quite succinctly.

Sounds really simple, right? Well it is. The real question is whether it’s effective…
I first talked about it in a post on the 5th June 2017. Coincidentally, one year ago today! I didn’t mean for that to be the case but since I only did the method for 6 months and I’m writing about it now, let’s say I wasn’t the most enthusiastic. I missed a month due to not feeling well and I don’t feel bad about it at all.
Now, whilst in the midst of this upside down period of my life, I was spouting nonsense like “I don’t want to jump the gun by saying it’s working but I think my hair has grown a little longer than it did in the first 6 months [of my journey].” I had so much hope for that second 6 month chunk of the journey from baldness. I was full of hope and optimism that I had found a great way of increasing my growth rate and breaking through the 0.5 inch per month average for the rest of the world.
I had to do a trim during the method where I lost a minimal amount, so the overall result was 1.96 inches or just under 5 cm. My first 6 months was 2.38 inches or 6 cm, so basically considering the trim, it made literally no difference. And I have to be honest, I’m a little glad it didn’t work. Because I didn’t enjoy it one bit by the end. And I can’t be arsed to put myself through this again. It was only like 10 minutes out of my day, for one week a month, but I’d rather just moisturise my hair, do a little scalp massage and move on.
My last session was just before I put my first post-chop braids in. And I think that probably did more for my hair. Just a good old protective style.
So the conclusion, I guess you can do it as a bit of self-care, taking some time for yourself, nourishing your scalp and concentrating on you. Other than that, I don’t think it’s worth it.
Sorry if this post doesn’t have my usual oomph and positivity but I was a bit deflated that this didn’t yield results for me. I’m not a fool to believe outlandish claims but this all sounded legit. Maybe it’s just me, I could have been doing something wrong or my hair just didn’t respond to this or maybe it just doesn’t work.
I normally like to think that I’ll give something another go but really, this is a nah from me. Something I do want to commit to is more scalp massages because they do feel nice, stimulate the scalp and I believe they do aid in growth. And I can do that all quite happily without having to be upside down.
My hair isn’t growing mega fast, but it is growing faster than I can ever remember. I just don’t think the Inversion Method is adding anything to the mix.
Let’s keep growing together (but not with this method)!
