Look at what a wonderful hair part I’ve got now.
I look at it and I’m so surprised myself.
For years and years and years I had such a sparse part. It was sooo wide and bare and bald and there was just a little bit of hair and the hair was soooo thin.
I think I’ve grown the part hair back so nice and thick and dense in just the short time since covid began, because that’s when it occurred to me to get proactive and actually actively do things to try and get my hair back, after sitting around watching hair vids all day long since I didn’t have to go out to work anymore.
So this is what I think helped me the most to grow my hair back:
I think what was most effective was taking hair vitamins.
If you want more hair and you only have time to do one thing, I would definitely recommend you take HAIR VITAMINS.
I shuffle my hair vits around all the time. I started with Phytophanère and it was good.
Then I changed to biotin and niacin and it was even better.
Then I started taking a vitamin B complex that has all the B vitamins and that is even better.
I remember as a child I had suuuuch thick hair, and I took multivitamins every day.
I guess no matter how well they eat the average person just doesn’t get enough vitamins in their diet.
I’ve developed a habit of regular hair oiling.
Before, I did oil my hair occasionally. I knew it was good for hair but I could never find the time to do it. Sometimes I went months without hair oiling.
Now I do it every week.
I have a whole article on hair oiling. Basically I have my own homemade scalp oil. It’s made from macerating a spoonful of brahmi, a spoonful of bhringraj, a spoonful of alkanet root oil and a pinch of dried rosemary in olive oil. I combine that with castor oil and some essential oils and massage my scalp with that every week.
For the lengths I like to use just olive oil and coconut oil. Nothing fancy. I don’t go out of my way to dig up exotic oils I can’t get from my local supermarket.
I try to do this every week. Since I’ve started doing henna glosses I now oil my hair every 2 weeks. And the week I don’t oil my hair I either use a henna gloss or I henna my hair.
And finally I’m crazy about henna and I henna my hair a lot.
I see most people who henna their hair regularly usually have lots of hair. Even older people who would normally have thinning hair, frequent at their age, if they henna regularly they always have lots of hair.
Personally, I was always hennaing my hair regularly and still I suffered from the bald, thinning part. So I don’t think it’s the henna by itself that made the hair thicker.
But I’m sure henna helps. And combined with everything else I’ve been doing, well, it works.
Other than this I’m really not hiding any other secrets on how to grow your hair back. I’m still using the same solid shampoos I’ve been using for years.
And I almost always use a hair mask instead of conditioner after shampooing.
I do use leave-in’s and curling products, but that’s probably not necessary if you don’t have curly hair.
I started applying Ron Quina (more about this miracle product in a future post…… maybe) but I only started recently, maybe a month ago when I discovered it from a video. And I rarely ever remember to apply it so I don’t think it’s been able to do too much so far to help my hair grow.
I did also start carrying out regular scalp massages, almost every night. I’m sure that helped. I don’t use any oil or products, just a massage. When I remember to apply Ron Quina I do the massage with Ron Quina. But I don’t apply Ron Quina very often.
My son Ermenegildo also uses Ron Quina, he hopes it will prevent male baldness.
Ron Quina has been around for about a century and many men swear by it, they say they never suffered from male baldness thanks to Ron Quina. So I think it is worth a try, if you are constant and consistent to use it.
