I recently came across this website which belongs to an individual who claims to have halted and reversed his own hair loss through a variety of scalp excercises and developing certain facial muscles.
I would love to hear your views on this issue as I haven’t been able to find the topic on the blog. Do these exercises have any scientific bearing at all?
With regards to my own hair loss, I’m 21 and I noticed a small thinning area in the crown about a year ago and have been taking finasteride for about 10 months.
In this time, I’m sure that the number of hairs I’m losing daily has slowed down, however I haven’t seen a visible result as of yet. I’ve let my hair grow quite long (3-4 inches) for the last 2 months. Is it possible that when I get my hair cut shorter, I may see the benefits more clearly as the newer hair will have grown back thicker? (I hope that makes sense!)
Keep up the great work!
I personally can not believe that hair loss can be reversed with such exercises. I haven’t read anything that shows scalp massage or exercise would have any regrowth benefit, aside from theories like this. The site you reference quotes a “current textbook” that links scalp tightness to male pattern baldness, but it doesn’t provide author names or even a title. Certainly, it will not hurt to try these methods (besides time spent avoiding proven treatment methods in favor of this), but I don’t see any actual science here.
