Default Hanging Upside Down Stimulate Hair Growth?

I have heard that hanging inverted like on a "BackSwing" is supposed to stimulate hair growth. I am just wondering if this is true? I really can't see how it could do any harm?

Thanks Russ

I tried it on my chinning bar and had to come down after a few minutes because my head felt too weird full of blood lol

Waveskier,

Although this does appear to be a pretty popular question (as revealed by a quick internet search), there does not seem to be any validity to the claim that hanging upside down can increase hair growth. Sorry

I've heard you have to hang upside for 10 consecutive hours for any chance of regrowth. 8P

There are not many well known HT surgeons in Australia and NZ for this reason (due to this effect of being in the Southern Hemisphere with their heads pointing down) But the blood rush to the head one gets hanging would also be a DHT rush??

Well not what I wanted to hear, but good to know. It is not very comfortable hanging for any reasonable length of time. At least I can say that it is good for my lower back.

I knew there must be a reason that all those Aussies have such thick hair!
