    Default Why I buy into the hard scalp theory, and my plan

    Study here: https://www.longdom.org/open-access/...54.1000138.pdf

    It's a very short read, highly recommend not skipping reading it.

    The argument is essentially that grease gets trapped and causes the scalp to harden/thicken and form a dome shape. Through persistent massage over a long period of time, grease gets freed and skin loosens and flattens and allows hair to regrow.

    I noticed looking at my own scalp, that when I raise my eyebrows, there's a distinct line where the skin gets hard that lines up with the pattern of my hairline recession. While I raise my eyebrows the loose skin moves freely upward, but at a certain point it turns into a hard shell that all moves together, and seems to be pulled downward: https://giphy.com/gifs/hRCiA3SwhYjJzZHPtr

    See attached photo if you don't see what I mean.

    After giving myself a scalp massage, I can say that it feels amazing and I felt relaxed afterward.
    My plan is to do two 20 minute massages a day (as done in the study) for the next year. I will also raise my eyebrows a lot as I think that exercise is part of why I felt so good afterward. Perhaps it is relieving some tension from a lifetime of emotional repression by moving those facial muscles that people generally use while communicating and emoting. I will take progress pictures every month to see if my hairline has improved.

    I'm not gonna expect any hair to regrow, because I don't want to be disappointed, but I do at least expect to see my scalp soften up.

    As a side note, raising my arms to massage my head will be a good way to help with my shitty posture from too much computer usage. So worst case I make my scalp feel good and help straighten out my back.

    Has anyone tried this and actually had the persistence to stick to it for a long time?

    Would be interested to see others do the eyebrow raise and see if they have a similar "hard shell" on top of their head. Also, if someone knows someone who can grow a full head but chooses to shave it, to see if theirs looks any different.

    It actually looks a bit strange. If I were you, I would definitely go for a massage to solve this problem, since massage can perfectly correct the body. But, at the same time, unprofessional actions of the masseur can not only not remove, but also aggravate the existing problem, for example – to increase back pain. Therefore, it is very important to be sure that the specialist has the necessary qualifications and experience. And for this, it is important to choose the right massage parlor. For example, I love massage and very often go to it in the company of 대전출장안마. I like the effect that massage has on my body.
