On the way to brillo hair
Posted on Friday, June 27, 2003 - 12:15 am:   Edit Post Delete Post

For those who have been doing the exercise for enough time to notice improvements ( of the lack there of), I figure it would be interesting to have a thread for you just to state whether the exercise has been a good thing for your hair or not. In each post, just keep your reply in the boundaries of whether or not the exercise has helped, and how so. I figure this would be a nice, one stop reference for those interested to see how the exercise is affecting others

regards

I agree. I would definitely like to hear some testimonials. I've been doing the exercise for almost two months (I've probably only being doing it correctly for 5 weeks) and I have no idea if I'm getting anywhere yet. I know: it takes time. But time is passing and my receding hairline is about to become apparent.

I just saw a picture of my uncle (whose recession pattern I seem to be repeating) when he was a year older than I am now, and the hole was just starting to open up at the crown. I need some idea if the scalp exercise is reliable or if I need to get ready for the inevitable.

Well, i'm coming up on 3 months here. Been doing the basic exercises 2-3 times per day at 10-20 mins a shot.

So far everything that Tom has claimed has held true. NO growth or thickening yet, but my forehead lines have definatley faded a touch.

Some people have said that their hair gets darker, but i can't tell. Not somthing i took note of initially; its certainly not any lighter.

Ive have not been doing the exercises everyday and I am seeing great results. Instead I forget about my hairloss and avoid sitting in front of my mirror doing pointless exercises. Since I have not been doing the exercises and accepting my thinning hair line, I have been much happier and the ladys seem to notice. Dont let society tell you bald is bad, dont be a loser and worry about it while doing foolish scalp movements that are "free" yet he recommends buying his cd rom for the advanced exercises. Ooooh whats so special about these exercises. If tom has guts he will post this message, but I dont think he is gonna like it, nothing personal tom. I know your real smart and everything but you aint that brilliant.
Dont hate me.

Mr. notbaldyet. If you're content with your hair falling out, power to you. Most of us, however, would like to at least try to do somthing about it.

Speaking for myself, and many others i'm sure, i've spent a LOT of money on junk that didn't do stink. Coming across somthing that is simple, natural, plausable and FREE, like these scalp exercises is heaven sent. The fact that they might work is even better.

I already know that this makes my forhead lines fade, i'd do it for that alone.

Also, i havn't paid Tom a cent; and i won't until this technique has proven to work on me (however remotely). Then i will support his cause and learn the advanced techniques.

Don't give up, give it a year, and don't do it in front of the mirror if it gets you down.

I'm almost tempted to get defensive in response to Notbaldyet's message and say something like President Nixon said during the Watergate mess: "I'm not a crook." But I really feel no need to be defensive about this Web site. There's a good exchange of helpful information here, and it's uncluttered by commercials - pop-ups, banner ads, and other obnoxious material.

By the way, companies send me offers to post banner ads on my pages - especially ads for penile enlargement. Maybe these companies feel that men who are worried about their hair are also worried about the size of their penises. Anyway, this site is commercial-free and will remain so.

"If Tom's scalp exercises were a scam it would be the worst scam ever." I remember someone writing this in the discussion forum once and it still holds true. I don't know how anyone who has read this website from top to bottom can believe Tom is some type of scam artist. First, he tells you how to do the exercise for free as well as lets other people post who give you instructions on how to do it. Second, he takes each day to contribute to the discussion forum and replies to e-mails about his exercise. Third, the price of the cd is a paltry $25 with no other costs ever. Most scams have the distinction of suckering you into paying initial costs and inevitable subsequent costs with absolutely no results.

I could go on with more but I just want to say lay off of Tom until you've read every bit of this site including all the discussion forum posts and have done the scalp exercise religiously for a year. Otherwise refrain from critical comments. I would hate for Tom to pull the plug on this site and prevent other people from being help by his approach.

whether we think this is a scam or not, or whether we care about keeping our hair or not, it would be great if this thread was kept as a good source of information regarding individual testimonials.
has anyone had the results they wanted?
have some people not gained any benefits at all?
I'd love to hear, I'm sure everyone else does too.

I had posted this in another thread, just copied it and pasted it here (with a bit of editing):

I started losing my hair at about 18, I am going to be 27 this year, and its only been around a year or year and half since its become noticeable. I also have recession at the front, which makes my scalp noticeable, that said i do not have any bald spots. Anyway I've been doing the exercise for 9 months now. Have I had success? I think I have. To the extent that I still have a head of hair. Not just that, but my hair seems to have remained the same - density wise for the last 4-5 months. As far as hair regrowth is concerned - Prior to starting the exercise, I didn't recall seeing any hair in my temporal area (which is where most of my hair loss is), however now i can see a mixture of very faint hair blending in with a few dark strands. I do say 'few' - nothing dramatic. Not just that, but i noticed a few months ago what appeared to be new hair growing, i say this because the hair appeared slightly below my hair line. I cannot see those hairs anymore, why? because I am postivie that they have blended in with the rest of my hair. If i make an effort and place my fingers at the left temporal area i can locate them - yup - you'll do strange things when you start losing your hair.
I've mentioned this, becasue i think i still have a long way to go. Tom says he was 19 when he started to do soemthign about this hair, i was 26. Surely the loss of hair is not going to be recovered over night - that too over the 9 odd months i have been doing the exercise, so i reckon i'll wait another 6-7 months to be really sure (not that i'll stop the exeercises).

I wish we could get some of the guys from the testimonial page to come back and discuss their results. It's so hard to know if hair fall out is stopping because of the exercises or because the hair fallout has reached a temporary plateau (usually because of some sort of hormonal stabilization). Heck, it's hard to know if the loss has really stabilized at all. If people like "LoyalPawn" and "believer" (both of who seemed to have tremendous success) were to say that they still are not experiencing hair loss because of the exercise, I know I would feel a lot more confident and a lot less desperate to try some chemical solution.

Those of you who have had success, keep coming back to encourage the rest of us.

The 'hair falling out', 'the hair stablization' - these still confuse me. However, my understanding is this. You will always have hair that falls out (i still lose hair everyday that way), its more the ability to keep producing hair to compensate for those that fall out which will determine whether or not you will go bald.

Of course hair falls out. I probably chose my words poorly. I think you have described stabilization fairly well as I understand it.

I mean: do these guys still believe that they are maintaining their overall hair count? (given that the number or hairs can fluctuate) How did they know that it had happened? And if it has happened, did it persist, or was it just a lull in th process? My uncle lost some hair in his twenties (enough to look as though he were balding) and thirties, but he didn't really start losing until he turned forty. I'm sure that somewhere in there, he might have come to the conclusion that the loss had stopped.

Personally, I find it near impossible to gauge the extent of my recession, and can only notice changes in terms of several months (i.e. I can see that my temples are recessed from three months ago). Every so often, I:

a)look in the mirror and freak out
b)begin checking the mirror constantly
c)relax because recession is almost impossible to detect over the span of a week or two
d)repeat the process a month or two down the road

I play lots of mental games wherein I panic about my hair (Whoa, it feels thin over here!) and then calm myself down (Well, it feels about that thin above my ear, too).

I don't imagine that I'll quit the exercises, but I'm hoping for some encouragement.
