Yes! It will work for anyone because it stimulates the scalp!!! There have been many reports of this method regrowing many many years of hairloss. This, along with scalp massage WILL 100% regrow your hair.
I tried this brushing technique for hair loss and noticed a difference within a couple weeks. I really had my doubts, but truthfully I feel that nowadays I have less hairs falling than I ever have.
I always had really thick hair which I took for granted but over the past few years it had been shedding at a more and more rapid pace. It began to look thin, and I had a handful of maybe fifteen hairs nearly every time I ran my hand through it. Naturally I was panicked and self conscious at the age of 23, but was reluctant to use certain topical drugs and other unnatural "remedies." Since starting this technique once a day or every other day, along with decreasing my shampooing to two times a week (three max), my hair has looked great! Shiny, full, and I've had several unrelated unsolicited comments from people I know about the difference they noticed.
All I do is flip my head over and use a boar's bristle brush over all my hair until it's brushed (sometimes this requires pre-combing if it's knotted), making sure not to put pressure on the scalp, and I can feel the follicles being stimulated. Flip back over, brush it all down, and viola, treatment over.
No more clogged drains, no more hairy brush. I also quit eating beef; I wonder if this had anything to do with it? Either way, now I'm grateful for the hairs in my head, even though they're turning gray. Thank you earth clinic.
I want to thank you for posting this, and affirm that this really worked for me! As another poster mentioned, it may not be a hair growth remedy, but it sure does slow or halt the hair shedding. This regiment should be a must for anyone with a certain length of hair. I saw a dramatic decrease in the amount of hairs that I shed while washing my hair, and it is now down to 1 or zero! I had read about brushing with a boar bristle brush on a Long-Hair web forum, in order to decrease the shedding and clogging in the shower, but they did not list this technique and I only tried this after reading it here on earth clinic! Thank you so much!
I would like to share this with earth clinic and Ted. I found this on the Internet but sorry I don't remember where or I would give them the credit for this simple stop hair fall out remedy.
This person said to use a soft bristle brush such as a boar bristle brush and bend forward at the waist and brush your hair toward the floor. Do not push brush into the scalp but just start at the scalp and brush to the tips. (I use the other hand to hold the hair against the brush) No certain amount of times to brush. When you have all the hair brushed this direction, stand up and now you push the brush against the scalp and brush your hair towards the back or sides with constant pressure on the brush. Again this doesn't have to be done for any certain amount of times, just until you get the hair all brushed.
You can then style your hair. They said to do this 3 times a day.
I only do it twice, first thing in the morning and before I go to bed.
Their statement was this: Your hair WILL stop falling out. Not maybe or should stop.
So that's what convinced me to try it.
I am 65 years old and I have been losing hair constantly over the past few years. I tried a lot of diets, meds, shampoos and even one of Ted's remedies, with no success.
So when I read this article, I thought that's easy and cheap to try. I can do that.
I expected it to take a long time to show up if it was doing anything. To my surprise the hair fallout was stopped the first time I did this technique.
In the past, after each shower, I would have to clean the hair out of the drain or it would clog up.
The very first time I did this brushing there was nothing to clean out of the drain. I was so shocked because nothing had ever worked that fast to solve any problem I've had in the past.
I have been doing this for about 2 months now. The balding spot on the back of my head is completely gone. The thinning part on each side of my head is full again.
I didn't want to tell anyone until I knew for sure I wasn't imagining how well it works.
This person said as we get older we loose something on the scalp but that it's still on our hair, it just won't stay on the scalp. (I'm sorry I can't remember the word he used for that, but I'm sure Ted would know.)
The first brushing we are collecting this and the second brushing we are depositing it back onto the scalp where it is needed.
While getting my hair cut the last time, my beautician told me that my hair was very healthy and so was my scalp. I never had anyone tell me that before. I hadn't mentioned doing this to her. So it's noticeable to others.
