The only way to regrow strong, healthy hair — and prevent further hair loss — is to get to the root of the problem…
I’m talking about your hair follicles. Because these tiny glands control how full and thick your hair can be.
As you know, the hair on your head is dead. And applying all the products in the world to your tresses won’t bring it back to life.
But there is a simple way you can “wake up” dormant hair follicles…
By massaging your scalp and increasing blood flow to the follicles.
Supermodel Georgia Gibbs used scalp massage to restore her hair to its original glory after a 75% hair loss.
It worked for Georgia Gibbs. She’s the 24-year-old Australian supermodel who lost 75% of her hair due to an autoimmune disease and extreme stress…
But she was able to restore her hair back to its former health by massaging her scalp every day.
And the research backs it up.
According to a recent study, researchers found that regular scalp massages lead to thicker, healthier hair. This study involved nine participants who received a 4-minute scalp massage each day for 24 weeks. At the end of the study, it was found all of them had thicker hair than at the start.1
The results of a second study were even more dramatic. In this study, 340 men and women with androgenic alopecia — or male pattern baldness — massaged their scalps twice a day for an average of 15 minutes.
By the end of the study, 69% of participants said that their alopecia had greatly improved.2
The Science Behind the Beauty
Here’s how it works… When you massage your scalp, you activate hair follicle germs (HFGs) — the cells that help grow hair follicles.
HFGs are mesenchymal stem cells that exist right below the surface of the scalp. And this kind of research attacks the root cause of baldness. Unlike Big Pharma drugs and topical applications.
I always tell my patients to avoid products like this.
The minoxidil in Rogaine can cause a build-up of excess fluid between the heart and the sac surrounding the heart. This can lead to stabbing chest pain, trouble breathing, confusion and more.
Weight gain and depression are two more side effects of these dangerous drugs.
Regrow Luxurious Locks With Simple Massage
There are a lot of handheld scalp massagers on the market. But you really don’t need anything except your own two hands…
Use all 10 fingertips to apply medium pressure to your scalp in small circles. Work your way around your entire head to cover all areas. For the best results, massage your head for at least five minutes a few times a day.
But for even better results, I recommend massaging your scalp with these two oils…
- Black Cumin Seed Oil. These wonderous seeds contain more than 100 medicinal compounds, including protein, calcium, copper, phosphorus, folate, zinc, iron, and vitamins B1, B2 and B3. These nutrients provide your hair all the fuel it needs for a long, healthy life.
But a recent study confirms black cumin seed oil’s real strength — the power to regrow hair and add new life to thinning, frail hair. More than 70% of study participants regrew or experienced fuller, thicker, more luxurious hair.3 A second study found that the oil stopped 76% of hair loss in just two weeks.4
Look for organic 100% pure black seed oil.
- Rosemary. This is the oil that model Georgia Gibbs massaged into her hair. By stimulating cell division and dilating the blood vessels, rosemary stimulates the hair follicles to grow new hair.5
In one study, researchers divided 86 people with thinning hair into two groups. Half applied a rosemary oil mixture to their hair, while the rest used a placebo. After seven months, 44% of the people using rosemary oil had thicker, healthier hair.6
To get the most benefit out of each massage, pour 1 teaspoon of black cumin seed oil and 5 drops of rosemary oil into your palms and rub together. Massage your scalp for five to 10 minutes, focusing on the areas with the most hair loss. Once you’re done, smooth the oil over the rest of your hair down to the ends. Rinse and shampoo as usual.
