Correct ear movement while doing the SE

I read many messages that say good ear movement tells if you are doing the scalp exercise the right way. Please tell me in the clearest way possible how the ears should move when I am contracting my occipitalis muscle. I want to do this exercise correctly and I would like to find a test that is reli...

Re: Feedback of SE Form/Technique

I looked at your video a half dozen times. I think you are doing the scalp exercise the right way. There is plenty of scalp movement when you contract the scalp muscles. There is also good ear movement which indicates you are getting a contraction out of both the frontalis and occipitalis muscles. I...

Re: Can't feel my muscles even though I can wiggle my ears?

Sometimes a person has to "gobble" up a few vitamin supplements even if he has a good diet. You are never going to get enough vitamin E from even the most nutritious foods. Vitamin D3 and krill oil are two other supplements that might benefit people who have an otherwise good diet. But I a...

Re: Will my scalp get used to propecia

My experience has been the same as yours. It was a nice ride for three years on finasteride but the ride seems to have come to a halt now. I guess it is to be expected that the body builds up a tolerance for this drug or perhaps most drugs. I am not quitting the drug cold turkey though. I'm going to...

Re: Effect of cool air during or after a SE session

When I do the scalp exercise for ten or fifteen minutes my scalp feels hot. Cool air feels great after a SE workout. But the important question is hair growth. Have you grown any new hair? I've achieved stabilization but see very few new hairs. No more itching or drandruff though--that is a big plus.

Re: using thought to grow hair

Canada has the best placebos. I get them from the canadianpharmacy.com. Every day and in every way my hair is getting better and better. Placebos plus meditation is the key.

Re: SE progress thread

I was on propecia for about 6 months and it did help my hair a little. I had to quit though because of the side effects, lack of sex drive and pain in my balls. I started doing the scalp exercise while I was on propecia although I was not doing it right. The contraction of the occips was hard for me...

Will my scalp get used to propecia

People on narcotics need a larger dose of the drug to keep them happy as the months and years go on. Even though the hair follicles respond positively to propecia at first, will this drug tend to lose its effectiveness after a while. If this is true is there some kind of physiological explanation? W...

Having a hard time with the scalp exercise

I have been tensing every muscle in my body, my neck, my shoulders, and my jaw muscles, but no matter what I do I cant get my scalp muscles to contract. The muscles at the front of the head are no problem, but those muscles at the back of the head just dont seem to do what I tell them. Can you give ...
