    Default Has anyone tried scalp massages for hair loss?

    I could not find one thread on scalp massages here.

    Has anyone tried them and had results? 'Perfect Hair health' by rob is a big proponent of them and a lot of people discuss success with them online. 'Hair guard' is another place that advised to do them.

    They probably cant harm, at least its natural, (I really don't want to use any type of drug or something like minoxidil etc)..

    I've just been scared about the initial shedding phase that can occur, has anyone experienced that?

    Thanks guys

    Scalp Massages do nothing. Hair loss has nothing to do with blood flow to the scalp. It has to do with DHT killing your hair follicles.

    Then how does minox work?

    Better blood flow=more oxygen= less DHT

    Nope. Minoxidil does nothing to combat DHT. It helps grow your hair, but it doesn't prevent you from losing it. Minoxidil works because of the chemicals help promote your hair follicles into a growth phase. (It's complicated to understand). If it were due to blood flow, every fit person would have hair, and no fat person would have hair. The fact that it's a vasodilator is unrelated to how it actually works.

    So complicated that you can't explain it. Your analogy doesn't make sense either.

    Which means it is 100% a blood flood circulation drug. It's used for that purpose. Stop trying to act like a know it all. You know nothing.

    Massage for hair loss performed by a trained massage therapist will increase blood flow to the hair follicles, condition the scalp, and enhance the strength of the roots. It will also aid relaxation and reduce feelings of stress. Increased blood flow to the hair follicle will result in increased nutrient intake.
