    I don't know why I didn't see this post earlier!
    I'm really lazy when it comes to measuring/taking progress pics so I kind of just guess. My hair does seem like it gained a little, but I don't think I gained a full inch. Maybe 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch.

    I finished inversion for this month too and think I probably gained the same amount. I should start actually measuring.

    I've been using Xcel21 on my scalp and not massaging. When I invert, I use it as a chance to really stretch my hamstrings. I bend at the waist and either touch my toes, or wrap my arms around my legs so that my palms are on my calves and try to get my nose as close to touching my knees as possible.

    Lol I always lock the door because I know my SO would definitely give me weird looks. But I set a timer while I'm inverting too and he's heard it go off and asks "Why are you timing yourself on the toilet?"

    Did you gain an inch (or any addition to what's normal for you) afterwards?

    @Hey CheChe1881,
    No, I didn't gain an inch! My normal growth rate is about 1/2 an inch each month. I don't know what I got afterwards.

    The ladies here taught me to not look for gains after each session of inversion.

    They told me to set a goal date, for example, in June. On that date, I am to look at my overall progress. If the length of my hair is beyond my normal or average length, that is how I am to determine if inversion is working for me or not. This is my interpretation of how to assess whether or not inversion is working.

    I'm doing this faithfully until December 2017. Thus, for me, I am going on faith!

    I was inspired by @Aggie and her results from 2016. I trust @Aggie. You may want to ask her about her process and experience!

    I have not inverted for 3 months I think, so I made tonight my first night since then and massaged with Curly Proverbz growth oil for 7 minutes.

    Day 1 for the month of May complete.

    I haven't been consistent with inversion for the last 2 months. Sigh. Need to get back to it.
