What about the results?

Hi Tom I'd like to ask you 3 questions about the results of the scalp exercise. 1) You obviously receive a lot of e-mails and read a lot of posts on this forum. Is there a good chance of success, especially for a young man with no baldspots yet like me (at least mantaining what I have)? Do the succe...

Re: What inspired me to try the SE

What you're saying about the frontalis is right. Today I noticed how that may impact our hair. A coworker of mine, when raising his eyebrows, moves slightly the scalp. He's over 30 and with a good head of hair. Another one, 25 with thinning in the crown area, raises his eyebrows too -but no scalp mo...

Re: Is really the occ/front muscles contraction *alternate*?

How long have you been doing the SE? I did it from time to time (no consistence at all) from January till August. At the end of August I decided to discipline myself and to take it more seriously, so I've been doing it with consistence and patience (2 months now). I have to wait at least another 6 ...

Re: Should I learn how to move the occipitals?

Hey VegetaHairline When I contract the occipitalis I see my scalp moving but far less than when I use the frontalis. As we already said in another post, it's the alternate contraction that gives you the best movement. So this is what I found: Scalp Movement with only occipitalis < SM with only front...

OhS: I read you've been doing the SE for 6 months. What about your hair health? Any improvements? Are you satisfied?

Re: Is really the occ/front muscles contraction *alternate*?

On this topic I'm looking forward to Tom's answer. By the way, I use to: 1) Contract the frontalis. My eyebrows raise and come closer to the scalp: or maybe it's the scalp that moves down towards the eyebrows, I don't know :? There are also lines forming on the forehead. 2) Contract the occipitalis....

Re: I think i'm doing progress

I'm happy you're learning to do the exercise VegetaHairline. Focusing on ear movement has been for me too the key to activate my occipitalis. If you keep on exercising you'll be soon able to contract frontalis and occipitalis (not simultaneously of course) and you'll appreciate how much your scalp m...

Re: I think i'm doing progress

Thanks for your answer.

Would it be too much if I asked you to post a photo of your current hairline? I think it would be useful for you too, should you want to make some before-after comparisons in the next future.

Re: I think i'm doing progress

I don't feel burning like most balding people but i feel an amazing boost to circulation sometimes. Like my entire scalp is flowing with blood for a good 20-30 minutes and i can feel this blood flow even better in the most thinned out areas. I'm happy that the Scalp Exercise seems to be working for...

Re: Gel and hair loss

:D :D :D

This may be useful. I also found that if you give up conditioners and too much shampooing, hair as a result is less soft and gel is no longer necessary since you'll be able to model it anyway.
