Olive Oil Growth Regime

Hey Curlies! I love perusing Pinterest in my spare time and came across this regimen in which you apply warm olive oil to the hair, hang upside for lime 10 minutes then wash out the oil an hour or so later. Has anybody heard of this? Better yet.....has anyone tried this? Of course, all the posts promise up to 3 inches of growth in a few week's time and it just seems to good to be true.

I'm a firm believer that you can't manipulate your hair growth, but I'm not incapable of changing my mind! ;)

    This basically sounds like the inversion method, if I'm not mistaken :)

    There's actually a thread on that, which you might find interesting:
