I've read quite a few people's personal experiences on the internet about how they have used a boar bristle brush in order to combat their hair loss.
The theory behind this seems to be that men these days tend not to take the time to brush their hair anymore, thus resulting in little to no blood flow to their scalp. Also, brushing is thought by some people to have a negative effect on hair & scalp. This type of brush seems to be built in a way that it can stimulate the scalp and increase blood flow to hair follicles without being too harsh and damaging to the hair and skin.
I've recently purchased one and have started brushing for a few minutes a day to see if it actually works. I know that i am losing my hair and so i shave my head. Based on this i don't really have anything to lose if it doesn't work or makes things worse. I think however that i may be having some success as i have noticed very small delicate hairs have sprang up where my hair has receded, and i know they weren't there before.
I don't wanna speak too soon, but i'm quite pleased so far so i'm really gonna give this a go. I'll try and get hold of a digi camera and start taking photos to chronicle my progress or lack thereof
That's my story so far....
I don't suppose anyone else has any related stories, successful or not?
