Scalp massage, a free and great way to get back your hair?
Lately, I am reading a lot about scalp massage and how it is effective in fighting alopecia. It seems that the scalp massage allows the hair follicles to have increased blood circulation. They become stronger and healthier. And, eventually, this leads you to have thicker hair on your head.
This reminded me a hair care center that I used to go in West LA back in the 90`s. They used a similar technique. I remember going there twice a week for scalp massage. Unfortunately, I had so much hair back then and did not care. So, I stopped going after a few weeks.
They demonstrated me that the skin on top of my head is much tighter compared to the skin at the back. I guess, it is not a coincidence that you have more hair when the skin is loose. Also, this might be one of the reasons why hair transplant physicians harvest from the back.
Take a look at this great website for scalp massage techniques. Really interesting stuff; they claim you can fight hair loss just by using special massage techniques and no drugs! Here is what they say:
The cool thing about all of this is that it’s actually possible to reverse scalp fibrosis and release excess sebum trapped in the scalp skin, thereby increasing blood flow and allowing your scalp to flush out any trapped DHT. Using specific massage techniques I was actually able to arrest my hair loss and regrow nearly all my hair in just under a year (no drugs, shampoos, products, or surgeries)1.http://www.jdmoyer.com/2015/04/13/hair/
This video is a good demonstration for scalp massage.
Day 90 of the Hair Regrowth Test
I am only doing one post from October since there is not much change during the whole month. Photos are from Oct 5, 7, and 13.
Little hair became more visible but they are still weak. Note that from now on, I decided to give a shot to scalp massage while applying the solution. So, starting from the month of mighty festivals, all photos will show the effect if there is any. I count to 30 while massaging then I get incredibly bored. That is my limit. And, sometimes I count very fast. But it is suggested that the scalp massage should take around 10 minutes or so.
