Aubrey De Grey probably needs a lot of shampoo. :D Maybe he stands out in the crowd by cultivating the persona of an eccentric scientist with long hair and flowing beard, on a mission to end aging.

Re: High Blood Pressure and Baldness

Stiffness and immobility is also a form of mechanical stress. An aging scalp would become stiff and inelastic. Arthritis of the galea. Senescence is another word for aging.

Occipitofrontalis muscle and the Vagus Nerve

Doing the scalp exercise possibly stimulates some of these nerves somehow. For a long time I wondered if there was a connection with the scalp exercise and the digestive tract :ugeek: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/834808-overview Occipitofrontalis muscle The occipitofrontalis muscle consists...

Re: High Blood Pressure and Baldness

galeaoman, Why did you select as your source of theoretical information The International Journal of Trichology - the official Journal of the Hair Research Society of India? This is a neutral question, not an adversarial question. It says that they are a peer reviewed journal but they could be crac...

Re: High Blood Pressure and Baldness

What causes hair follicles to become sensitive to androgens? Maybe it could be a type of feedback cycle? Hypothetically speaking, the causal factors for MPB appear to be several - including androgens, that will all work in tandem. When one is triggered then the rest will automatically follow suit an...

Re: Scalp movement?

Now that is the way to do the scalp exercise! There is complete contraction of both the frontalis and occipitalis muscles. This gives the scalp a lot of forward and backward movement. This contraction of the muscles plus the 3/4 inch of scalp movement increases lymphatic drainage to the maximum, th...

Re: High Blood Pressure and Baldness

I believe science requires that all new theories need to be met with skepticism so more experiments can be derived in order to falsify the new hypothesis. :D DHT buildup in the upper scalp tissues might cause thinning of those tissues, resulting in more pressure exerted on the hair follicles, restri...

A very interesting paper... Cause of Androgenic Alopecia: Crux of the Matter https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4174066/ Why does DHT (or 5-alpha reductase enzyme activity) increase in balding scalp?

Re: High Blood Pressure and Baldness

Interesting ideas on how gravity may contribute to pattern balding... https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/10/131030092856.htm In the scalp, DHT seems to cause hair follicles to become thinner. But in other areas of the body, such as the underarms and genital area, DHT and other male sex hormo...
