How To Grow Your Hair OVERNIGHT! 1 Inch In 12 Hours


Want to grow your hair long and fast? Ever wondered if you could grow your hair overnight? You can and in this blog post I’m going to show you exactly how to do that. A real process, with real time results!

What You Will Need…

  • 2 Eggs
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Grapeseed Oil
  • Honey (optional)
  • Coconut Oil or Rapeseed Oil
  • Clingfilm (preferred) or Plastic Cap

Before We Get Started…

The first you want to do is take a section of your hair that you’re going to use for a before and after comparison. Wet the hair, stretch it as long as possible and mark off the length of the hair. Once you’ve done this, either put it in a little hairband or twist it so you can identify what section to measure again after you have completed the process.

Step 1

Mix 2 eggs, 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and 1 tablespoon of honey in a bowl. Whisk it around until the mixture is blended and smooth.

Tip: You can replace the extra virgin olive oil with grapeseed oil or coconut oil.

Step 2:

Evenly apply the mixture to your scalp and hair. Don’t forget to do the middle section and ends of your hair, which often gets left out.

Step 3:

Wrap your hair in clingfilm, or cover it with a plastic cap and leave in for 1 hour.

Step 4:

Remove the clingfilm or cap from your hair and rinse the oil and egg out using luke warm water.

Step 5:

Apply 3 tablespoons of melted coconut oil to your scalp and hair. Again, remember to do the middle section and ends of your hair.

Tip: Rapeseed oil is known to work best with this method. If you can buy this in your area then use this instead of coconut oil

Step 6:

Using your fingertips, massage your scalp for 5-10 minutes. I personally listened to 3 different songs, as that tends to be around the 10 minute mark. This step is very important so do not skin it! Massaging your scalp increase blood flow your scalp, which promotes hair growth.

Step 7:

Wrap your hair in clingfilm or a cap and then leave this in for 8 hours or overnight.

Step 8:

Rinse out the coconut oil using luke warm water.

Tip: This step is optional. If you have thick curly coarse hair or afro hair, you can leave the coconut oil in. If you have caucasian thin hair, you may find the oil to be too greasy and want to wash it out. 

Step 9:

Measure the section of your hair you did previously to see your amazing results!!

      1. I just had a hair cut and now it’s really short how long will it take to grow my hair long if I use this and how often should I use it


  1. my hair is short. my boyfriend wants it long and so do i because i love doing my hair but there is not much that i can do to it because it is short. i want it to grow asap. i am not a very patient person. please help me.


  2. I’m desperate to grow my hair out again its so short the guy was supposed to cut 2 1\2 inches but he cut 5😭😭


  3. Would you recommend 1x/week or 2x/month? I have coarse hair and I’m worried about the protein overload that you mentioned…


    1. I personally haven’t seen anyone do it with sister locks, but definitely give it a go and if it works for you do let me know so I can advise anyone that asks in the future 🙂


      1. I’m a Nigerian, I did my big chop 2 months ago, I tied speeding up my growth with this technique and it worked really well, my hair is on my back🥰


    1. Hair strands grow at different lengths so you can’t make all hair equal. Try this method and if it doesn’t work for you, give the Inversion method a go. Be sure to follow a healthy hair routine as well. No relaxing, perms, heat etc… deep condition ofter and do hot oil treatments


    1. Hello. I’m not sure about the overnight growth however please do check out the inversion method. Many people have grown 1 inch in just 7 days using this method. It’s popular on YouTube so check it out.


  4. I’m confused on which oil works best?
    “Chanele Edwards // November 1, 2017 at 9:39 pm // Reply
    No – Rapeseed oil works best, but you can also use black castor oil, argan oil and extra virgin olive oil. Some will work better than others”

    The recipe says Grapeseed oil. Rapeseed oil is like the old version of Canola Oil, I believe.


  5. Just wanna clarify some things:
    1) Does your hair have to be washed and cleaned before you put the egg on?
    2) I know you said rinse with luke warm water in Step 4. Does that mean no shampoo between applying the mixture & oil?
    3)In the comments did you mean Grapeseed oil or Rapeseed oil? Even though they sound similar they are in fact two different seeds. The latter of which a variant is used to make Canola Oil.

    1. 1) It doesn’t have to but I would advise that you do. A clean scalp is always better for hair growth
      2) You don’t want the water to be too hot otherwise it will cook the egg. If you struggle to get all the egg mask out of your hair then yes you can use a shampoo
      3) Rapeseed oil is known to work best, but you can use other oils if you struggle to find Rapeseed oil in your area like I did. It just may not work as well.


  6. I mixed bentonite clay, apple cider vinegar, castor oil, coconut oil, honey and water together and applied it to my hair after doing the egg treatment. What im asking is what benefits will this provide for my hair? Is it to much? Is there a such thing as “to much” when it comes to doing treatments on your hair?


    1. Hi Kate, the growth rates vary for different people. I saw amazing results with this and others have seen less visible results. I can’t guarantee hair growth for you, but from my experience it’s definitely worth a try.


  7. Hi my name is Taimiya and my hair 9 centimetres longer than my shoulder and I want it to grow in one week or so. What do I do?


  8. should your still be wet (from rinsing out the egg) when you apply the coconut oil? also, how often should i do this to get the best results?


  9. can i used it for my 12 yrs daughter when she plaits after undoing there is much hair coming out. is it possible for black curly hair


  10. my hair is sooo sooo short
    it is not even reaching to my shoulder
    is so very short
    and i want it to grow to my shoulder level
    could it really work on my hair


  11. My son just got a hair cut and it was supposed to be a trim…now it’s short and he wants it long again before he goes to the Navy. Will this work on short hair?


  12. Hi I know I’m kind of late to the chat, but I used to have long beautiful hair and it’s still really but but it’s a lot shorter. Anyways I wanted to know if my hair will become longer overnight or if it takes a few nights?


  13. Just came across your video from does this recipe work people who have alopecia? I AM at my whits end.


    1. Are you from London? This wont work for alopecia because that’s a more serious problem. My friend has alopecia and tried EVERYTHING!! But she found a product that worked. I will ask her what it was and get back to you. Let me know if you’re in London as it’s a small business she bought from.
