Video Title: Can Rubbing-Brushing Scalp Stimulate Hair Growth
Dr. Washenik: Is it true that rubbing your hair, rubbing your scalp, brushing your hair vigorously so that your scalp is stimulated can cause hair growth? Well, that is one of these age-old, century-old practices that people talk about. You can go and get your scalp massaged with the belief that perhaps a vigorous massaging will invigorate the scalp and lead to hair growth. There are no good, unfortunately, scientific or medical studies that have shown massaging, rubbing, or brushing your scalp will lead to hair growth. We continue to look at this and then try to investigate from a scientific side whether or not there can be any underlying mechanism of action where that could be true, but so far we don’t have any data to back up that premise that rubbing your scalp or brushing your hair with scalp stimulation can lead to hair growth (reduce hair loss).
