View Full Version : Scalp Exercises for Hair Re-growth?

12-16-2014, 02:18 PM
At the risk of starting one of the most "bro-sciencey" and laughable threads that sets the cutting edge section back 10 years I have to ask, has anyone tried adding scalp exercises to their regimen?

I've read in a number of places that alternating contractions on the front and back of your scalp by raising your eyebrows, moving your ears back, etc. helps to increase elasticity and blood-flow. In essence, one consistent characteristic of MPB is a "tight" scalp, that bunches up and leads to the shrinking of hair follicles. One guy on Youtube in a transplant video comment section swore that this method re-grew 98% of the hair on his temples which had thinned pretty significantly and that he was not on other hair loss medications/ treatments.

Just thought I'd throw it out there.

I heard the scalp exercises such as detumescence therapy. My understanding is it can break down calcification and increases blood flow.

If calcification was an issue, I wonder if keeping the area saturated in apple cider vinegar would resolve it. It is well known to dissolve an egg shell for example. Fairly cheap.

I don't know if it would hurt existing hair or scalp, otherwise I would try it. I have rinsed my hair in it but it dries. I heard of people rinsing and applying a shower cap for awhile, but that is probably not long enough.

I removed a mole with it before. Soaked a cotton ball and taped it to the area. It scabbed over in a week, but I pulled it off prematurely leaving a scar. Otherwise left the surrounding skin unharmed other than redness.

Doubtful it could regrow hair though.

It's not.

and increases blood flow

There is no evidence to suggest that MPB is due to lack of blood flow. Wouldn't we all be standing on our heads for hours every day if it was.
