Ahhh, don't you just love to see a happy couple working together?!? Well in this video tutorial showing us how to do a GORGEOUS finger coil natural hairstyle, Youtuber Yapah Rawchaa's husband lends a helping hand and narrates this bomb natural hairstyle while the sista shows the skills off.
It's so great to hear her husband encouraging her love and care for her natural hair and even giving a little pep talk to the other natural women out here who will ultimately end up with healthier and stronger hair.
Listen, if you DO HAVE TIME for foolishness, skip this article. Because folks out here lookin' a whole fool doing the "inversion method" when it's so unnecessary for consistent hair growth.
You may have seen sistas saying that it worked for them, I will explain what is ACTUALLY causing their hair growth and show you how to get that growth without doing yoga positions and gymnastics, lol.
I can't have my peeps out here lookin' cray...
First Let's Explain What The Inversion Method For Hair growth Is...
The inversion method has three parts...
1st - You warm up an oil or combination of oils of your choice.
2nd - You massage the warm oil into your scalp.
3rd - You go against gravity and flip or invert your head over for four minutes.
You're supposedly supposed to do this every day for a set period of time, I've noticed that the women who grew hair did this process for a month or more. This leads me into WHY they are growing hair, and it's not from having their head hanging upside down Dracula-style....
First, let's take a closer look at what's really going on. Cells in human body love warmth, PERIOD.
You know that soothing feeling you get when you're warm and wrapped up all comfy in your blanket?
Well, that's the same way your blood vessels feel in your scalp when you warm up a quality hair-growth oil and massage it in.
It's a small way of helping your blood vessels relax so you can pump more blood smoothly, the warm oil helps and the action of scalp massages will help you warm up that area even more.
These two actions done CONSISTENTLY lead to more blood flow, a healthier growth environment for your scalp and more consistent hair growth. These two steps alone. You would get the exact same results without risking an injury and inverting your scalp. So why do people promote the "inversion method"???
Here's The Trick & Why Some Women NEED The Inversion Method
Some women need to BELIEVE that they are doing something unique and revolutionary in order to do the boring-yet-proven-to-be-effective hair growth techniques ON A CONSISTENT BASIS.
Many of us are guilty of this... See, for some it's hard to imagine the huge hair growth benefits you get from regularly massaging your scalp. WHY?
Well, many women discount the benefits of scalp massaging because...
It has a cumulative effect, you must have patience in order to start seeing results.
While massaging we can't actually see what's going on beneath the scalp.
So, when someone says that THE KEY IS DOING IT UPSIDE DOWN for a month straight it sounds like a new secret and it's exciting to try. it simply makes you do the boring, consistent work and be excited about it.
Check out this video about the growth behavior of hair right quick and then finish reading this article, you'll learn a ton of great info!
Video Tutorial: The Growth Behavior of Natural Hair
The Reason Why CONSISTENT Oil Massaging Grows Hair - No Inversion Needed
Oil massaging super-charges the ever-important role that healthy and strong blood flow to your follicle plays in growing lots of natural Black hair.
The function of the cells in our hair follicles is to...
Take in nutrients.
and eliminate waste...
So if you can find a way to improve the taking in of nutrients to your follicles you'll get more protein production and more hair growth.
That's why scalp massaging is so effective with or without the inversion method, doing a gentle 10-minute scalp massage every day with 30-second breaks will make a big difference for the better.
Remember, you're not doing a deep tissue massage, so don't wear your scalp out, just rub lightly in a small area at a time to avoid damaging your hair strands and follicles.
Don't worry, simply rubbing a small section stimulates a wide area of vessels, so try not to move around so much. As a result...
The blood in your scalp's blood vessels rushes in faster through that area and since the blood is carrying nutrients that your cells will absorb, they're getting more fuel for growth and in turn are producing more protein to make more hair.
Spending an extended period of time with your head upside down can disturb your body's natural flow, so be careful if you try this.
Improper use of the inversion method can cause other serious issues in your body especially if you already have a pre-existing condition like a hernia, low or high blood pressure, glaucoma, if you're pregnant, if you recently had a stroke, ear infection, obesity, swollen joints, pinkeye or if you're plain ol unhealthy.
And since you get an even better result from consistent head massages a healthy well-rounded diet and a consistent heart-rate pumping exercise regimen, there is no need to do the inversion hair growth technique.
Anyway, we wanted to pick through all of the "bought and paid for" reviews that are so popular on Youtube these days and find you some honest reviewers, just like we did when The Mane Choice came out with theirType 4 Hair Line a few months ago. So let's get into it, shall we...
2 Youtubers who BlackHairOMG Trusts - Fro The Culture Reviews
But Kimberly Cherrell and Shenelle Taylor get our 100% AUTHENTIC BlackHairOMG STamp of Approval. They always give their real feelings even if they don't like a product.
Even in these reviews of "Do it FRO the Culture" from The Mane Choice, one of these sistas flat out says, she'll continue to use the rest of her bottles, but it's not really for HER. She loved the conditioner, but she says she pretty much loves ALL of The Mane Choices conditioners, but when it came to styling she had some different feelings....
Check out Kimberly Cherrell's video right now and see what you think...

Our Main Choice of Comments That May Interest You
So while Kimberly had an issue with some of the products, other naturals who have tried it think it's the bomb! Hey, we're all different. Check out a couple comments about the NEW Main Choice Do it Fro The Culture line...
"Girl you know I loved that gel, but I completely understand why it wasn’t your favorite. It didn’t do the things you love in a gel-like super definition, but honey that’s why I loved it. No crunch, not drying at all...."
Da Lazy Natural says...
"This Main Choice Do it Fro The Culture line would be good for a friend of mine who prefers the big fluffy fro look over defined with a little crunch. I like my curls defined with some crunch because I know it's going to last all week. I'm not now nor have I ever been one to wash my hair every few days.
My wash days are every week to week and a half (depending on how good I'm being). So I need products that will give me both moisture and hold while keeping the frizz at bay!"
The comments are full under these videos too! The Mane Choice is stirring things up once again with their unique marketing, beautiful packaging and attempts to cover the needs of EVERY type of natural. Check out this last review from Shenelle Taylor...

I've been taking Diatomaceous Earth simply for health reasons for about two years, I didn't even hear about how it helps thicken hair and strengthen teeth and nails...
I was using it because I'm trying to jump rope with my grandkids one day and I know that it's good for cleaning bad bacteria from the gut and a ton of other great things for health.
So the hair benefits I noticed was just an unexpected bonus.
Diatomaceous Earth Has Just What Your Body Needs for Health
Diatomaceous Earth is made up of 89% silica. Silica is one of the most important trace elements in our body.
And it's critical to your health that get enough silica to help with numerous bodily functions and to aid in the all-important mineral absorption. Your bodies ability OR inability to properly absorb minerals is a sickness-or-wellness, life-or-death predicament.
That is why Diatomaceous Earth is such an important supplement for your overall health 1st, and your hair, skin, and teeth second.
There isn't any vitamin on the market that can produce the same results.
It Also Sucks Up Toxins That get Passed When Its Potty Time
See how classy I was in the way I phrased that? Lol. Anyway.
Diatomaceous Earth is made up of tiny fossilized water plants that are ground into a fine white powder.
On a microscopic level, these tiny cone-shaped particles move through your system, attracting everything from bacteria, fungi, protozoa, viruses, endotoxins, pesticides and drug residues, E-Coli, and heavy metals.
Diatomaceous Earth is a terrific colon cleanser and detoxifier and as it passes through your system, it literally attracts and traps toxins that are attacking your innards.
You know how great you look when you've been eating right or after you've completed a cleanse? Well, incorporating Diatomaceous Earth into your daily routine can produce similar beauty results.
Diatomaceous Earth for Natural Hair Growth and Thickness
The silica in Diatomaceous Earth has been shown to stimulate hair growth, strength and thickness and has been used as a treatment to prevent balding. See...
Our hair is made up of 90% silica, so it would make sense that it's thirsty for the stuff. Taking just 1 tablespoon of food-grade Diatomaceous Earth daily (it's EXTREMELY IMPORtANT THAT YOU GET FOOD-GRADE D.E.)gives you enough silica to support healthy, strong hair.
BlackHairOMG Approved Vid: Rapid Hair Growth with Diatomaceous Earth
Diatomaceous Earth is also very popular overseas and is used extensively as a health and beauty product for hair, skin, and nails.
Collagen, which is extremely important for healthy skin, is mostly made up of silica. When we are deficient in silica, our collagen breaks down more quickly, which makes the skin look old and dull.
Taking silica can restore and repair the collagen in our body. Silica also helps with skin problems like eczema, rashes, acne, warts, burns and insect bites.
Following a healthy silica regimen will leave you with healthy, glowing skin.
Diatomaceous Earth for Nails
Diatomaceous Earth also strengthens your nails by supplementing the nail bed with silica. Taking Diatomaceous Earth will restore the appearance and strength of weak nails and will prevent them from breaking.
Try It for Yourself!
So check it out ladies, getting longer, fuller, healthier hair while on the road to better overall health so you can live longer, enjoy your family more and look great while doing it is the way to go! Give it a month and see the results! I'll show you the exact brand of FOOD GRADE Diatomaceous Earth I'm taking right here:https://amzn.to/2PkWwXz

Me personally, I can't understand why people get real-world angry about someone applying a little heat to their hair every blue moon. Yes, constant and harsh heat is a known hair killer, folks gets so EXTRA though!
I mean, I don't use heat. But do you boo... And if I do have any reaction it maybe some CONSTRUCTIVE advice or if somebody is totally jackin' their hair up and don't wanna listen, I just sit back, grab some popcorn and get my giggle on.
Life's too short too catch a nervous breakdown over somebody else's head of hair.
So let me tell you what happened girrrrrl, we've all seen the naturals that get waaaaay in their feelings about what someone else does with their own hair (you know the type), lol.

So look, the sista ended up coming back to say to all the natural hair rulers of the world...
"Guys, lol. This is crazy I have to post this but I rarely straighten my WHOLE head because I wear sew-ins and do other things to my hair. I give my hair breaks all the time and prior to me straightening my hair this time I went 3 months without putting any heat on my hair!
I'm fine with my hair. It's still healthy with my little heat damage in the front! Thanks for the advice though... (smiley face)"
She kept it peaceful and classy, as a true Queen does... And besides that, the proof was ALL THE WAY in the pudding.
The End Results: FIRE
So not everyone was a negative Nancy, many naturals showed love and tried to let this sista be great the best way she knows how to be.

Let me stay on topic for once in my life, lol...
Adanna's video is a detailed natural hair tutorial that MAGICALLY shows you how to slick down short 4c natural hair into a low puff.
And I mean she showed the whole process, and absolutely whipped it! Many of the girlies in the comment section were in awe, ha. To be honest, I was shocked at her results too!

One of the best parts of the whole video was the comments, they are hilarious. The viewers just didn't understand how she pulled this off...
Here's an example of the comments:
"Even my hair doesn’t lay like this and I have 4a hair . Every time I slick it down , it does wave up but I still have a few stubborn curly hairs that REFUSE to lay down and I use a brush, water and gorilla snot gel."

I think you're gonna absolutely love this tutorial for doing a perm rod set on short natural hair! So dope. And look...
One of the BEST THINGS about Alisa's video tutorial is that her information is straight to the point, not a bunch of fluff like some vids, it's just helpful step-by-step instructions and real help. On top of that, she went the extra mile that you hardly ever see from YouTube hair channels...
Alisa is the TRUE MVP for showing how you keep this style overnight, SO HELPFUL! That part is ALWAYS MISSING in tutorials.
Her Hair Not Short Enough For You?
The only half-way complaint/compliment I saw from the ladies who watched the vid is that some were saying that Alisa's hair isn't truly "short". Some said she's just being modest and that she only had shrinkage instead of short hair. Shoooot, well if so, here's the deal...
Even if your hair is too short to do her style at the moment, this FANTABULOUSNESS will give you the motivation to keep growing. Those curls turned out BOMB honey!
