Over the Thanksgiving weekend I was watching some hair videos on YouTube and I came across several YouTubers who claimed that their hair grew an inch overnight. Each one did the same process and it appeared that it actually worked out for them. Thinking about the major trim that I plan on giving myself in the upcoming New Year, I thought I would try their method out on my own hair to see if it would work. If you’re interested in learning how to grow your hair an inch overnight and whether or not it actually worked for me, keep reading!
These are the things that you will need:
-4 tablespoons of grape seed oil or olive oil
-Saran Wrap or grocery bags
My Step by Step Process
*When I started watching YouTube videos I had already planned to wash my hair so I did a pre-poo with Grape Seed Oil and Wild Growth Light Moisturizing Oil then washed my hair with Suave Naturals clarifying shampoo. These steps are not a part of the process to grow your hair an inch over night, but I thought I’d mention it since this is what I did.
Step 1. – I first measured and took pictures of where my hair was in it’s straight stage before I washed it and pulled down in it’s wet stage after I washed it. I did this to make sure that my hair didn’t look longer when it was wet than it did when it was dry. I know that wet hair is more elastic than dry hair so I wanted to make sure that the elasticity of my hair wouldn’t distort my results. After taking photos and measuring my hair in it’s dry state and wet state, I saw that my hair was the same length dry and wet so I only included photos of my dry straight hair for this part of the process.
Left Back – 9 in. Left Front 10-10 1/2 in.
Right Back – 9 1/2 in. Right Front – 9 1/2 – 10 in.
*For the purpose of my experiment to ensure accurate results I sectioned off the pieces that I had initially measured so that I could measure those same exact pieces the next day.
Step 2. – I mixed my two eggs and 4 tbs of grape seed oil together and then applied it to my hair completely saturating it. Then I gave myself a scalp massage while bending over into the tub to increase blood flow to my scalp.
Step 3. – I then covered my hair with a plastic bag and left the egg and grape seed oil mix on my hair for 1 hr before rinsing it out.
Step 4. – After rinsing my hair I then saturated my hair with the coconut oil and gave myself another scalp massage while bending over to stimulate blood flow to the scalp. After I saturated my hair with coconut oil I covered my hair again with a plastic bag and left the coconut oil in my hair overnight.
*The next morning you can either leave the coconut oil in your hair or you can rinse it out. I chose to leave the oil in my hair.
The Moment of Truth.
The next morning when I woke up I took my hair down and these were the results that I got. Before After
Based on just the pictures alone it looks like my hair may have grown, but the pictures are actually misleading. After measuring my hair the next day I was able to see that my hair did not grow overnight at all. While this treatment seemed to have worked for some, it did not work for me. I may try this treatment one more time and start on dry hair instead of wet since that’s what the YouTubers did in the video to see if that will change my results. My hair may not have grown an inch but it did get a nice conditioning protein treatment. Give it a try on your own hair and see if you will get the results that you want!
Here are some YouTubers who were successful in growing their hair an inch overnight!
