Re: Correct ear movement while doing the SE

Correct ear movement is one of the two ways to determine if you're doing the scalp exercise the right way. The first way is to gauge how much scalp movement you're getting. If you're getting between a half an inch and three quarters of an inch of back and forth movement, you can be sure that you're ...

I see no image. Perhaps you have inserted the image code the wrong way.

Re: Strong Diffuse Hair Loss. DUPA, TE, ? Pictures included.

Here is something to keep in mind when you are analyzing what type of hair problem you're having. With male pattern baldness there are hundreds of vellus hairs; with telogen effluvium there are hardly any. You wrote, "My hairline does not appear to be changed at all." With male pattern baldness ther...

Re: Strong Diffuse Hair Loss. DUPA, TE, ? Pictures included.

Even skilled hair loss specialists have a hard time differentiating between patterned hair loss (MPB) and telogen effluvium (TE). As the hair loss continues, though, dermatologists can distinguish between the two. With patterned hair loss there is miniaturization of the hair follicles; with TE just ...

Re: Strong Diffuse Hair Loss. DUPA, TE, ? Pictures included.

I looked carefully at the six photos you posted. The good news is that you have only thinning, not balding. I see no bald spots in your hair. Perhaps your diet and the weight loss contributed to the thinning, but your weight loss was only minimal. The weight loss that causes telogen effluvium is usu...

Send me two videos: One from a side view of you doing the alternating contraction of both the frontalis and occipitalis. In the second video I'd like to ...

Re: In order to do the Scalp Exercise correctly, do I have to be able to move the Occipitalis muscles independently?

Being able to move the occipitalis muscle, two muscular slips at the back of the head, is an indication that you are doing the scalp exercise correctly. Occips.gif The scalp will always move a bit when you contract the frontalis muscle at the front of the head, but I don't think that this small move...

Re: Nutritional Deficiency and Hair Loss

Tapered ends of hair means that the hair has never been cut. When short hair that has never been cut starts to fall out, it is a sign of short cycling. This could indicate impending pattern baldness. But you said that, "I have been sprouting new short, thick hair around my crown where my fringe usua...

Re: Nutritional Deficiency and Hair Loss

Hair follicles are sensitive to good nutrition and to bad nutrition. The hair of people who have long-term bad eating habits like those suffering from anorexia usually have weak, stringy hair; the hair of people who have nutritious eating habits often have luxuriant hair. Now that you're eating habi...
