    So I said I was going to keep going with this challenge until December but I don't think that's going to work out. My life has gotten very busy and to be honest this isn't a priority anymore. Also I have had ongoing issues with patchy hair loss and a sore scalp. Especially in the colder months. The inversion challenge did not make it worse but unfortunately didn't make it better either. So I've been trying other things and I'm seeing some improvement.

    When I get to the bottom of this problem I might revisit the inversion the challenge. But for right now this is the end of the challenge for me.

    Today I started the Inversion Method again. I have suffered some hair loss in the crown of my head and in the front, so I am doing this method again and prayer to regrow my hair.

    I massaged with olive, tea tree and castor oils in a mix and inverted for 4 minutes.

    I have to become more consistent with posting. Today, I massaged with a small piece of aloe vera leaf from my plant. I applied it directly to the affected area on my scalp as I spoke out loud to The Lord about expecting and receiving, not only my healing, but also a head full of healthy hair, in Jesus' name.

    I also inverted for 4 minutes. The prayer made the time go by so much faster.

    Today, I inverted while massaging my scalp and praying out loud for 4 minutes. No oil and no aloe vera today.

    Day 4 I inverted for 4 minutes with massage and prayer. I washed my hair earlier today and applied olive oil to my hair and scalp. I then applied castor oil to my ends.

    I forgot to post before midnight, but I applied aloe vera leaf directly to my scalp and massaged it in. I then inverted and praised God for 4 minutes. This concludes Day 5.

    I will post later today for Day 6.

    Day 6 complete. I forgot to mention that I take hair, skin and nails vitamins every night before I go to bed, so that my body can absorb the most nutrients.

    Do you feel like the inversion method was worth it? Guess I’m just curious as to why you decided to end it.

    I had to restart the Inversion tonight, so this is Day 1 again. I will try to keep it up for the whole week.

    Day 2 (Tuesday) of the inversion with prayer. My hair is straightened, so I won't be adding anything to it except a little oil from time to time.

    Here I go again for the last time in 2019. Hopefully, I will get through the entire week.

    Day 1 - my hair is in braided twists. I massaged Hawaiian Silky and Jojoba oil into my scalp, prayed and inverted for 4 minutes.

    Day 7 was completed yesterday with prayer, a scalp massage, Hawaiian Silky and jojoba oil plus a 4 minute inversion.

    From the looks of things, my hair is beginning to grow back, but we'll see for next month.
