Scalp movement?

Perhaps the ability to move the scalp via the occipitofrontalis muscles improves lymphatic draining from the top of the head and gives better scalp tissue health?

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, thus getting rid of toxic buildup in the scalp tissue. It makes absolute physiological sense that the scalp workout you see in the video is a fantastic stimulant for the hair follicles. It is the correct way to do the scalp exercise; just getting a contraction from the frontalis muscles is not the correct way to do it; it will not get the job done.

I was able to practice using a mirror and now I can do the scalp exercise just like Conan did in that gif picture.

Flexing the occipitals for backward movement of the scalp is not that difficult. What was harder to learn was to pull the scalp forward after contracting the occipitals. It does not seem to be a matter of raising my eyebrows so much as teaching the frontalis muscles to pull the scalp forward. Practicing with a mirror helped.
