Yup, tried it. I heard of this one a while back - dunno about my hair but it set my heart racing for some reason.

Another old theory - sit while urinating, rather than standing. My Uncle gave me that tip and he has a full head of hair.

In her book entitled, HAND REFLEXOLOGY - Key to Perfect Health (Parker Publishing Company, Inc. - West Nyack, New York, 1975, Hardcover), author Mildred Carter devotes Chapter 36, entitled How to Stop Falling Hair with Reflexology, to describing the method of briskly rubbing or buffing the fingernails of one hand in an up and down motion against the fingernails of the other hand in order to both prevent hairloss and the graying of hair from ever occurring and to reverse baldness and restore natural hair color when either condition (baldness and/or gray hair) has already occurred. She attributes her knowledge of the method to one late Dr. Joe Shelby Riley, and states that in order to grow a beautiful new head of hair, even though you are currently bald, you should do it for five minutes at least three times a day. If still young and hairy and simply interested in preventing baldness and gray hair, just twice a day - morning and night - will suffice. Although she doesn't mention the word, "visualize", she does state that as you do it you should keep in mind what you wish to accomplish and concentrate on it. As far as a timeline goes, she simply states that if you're balding and are faithful to the practice, in a few weeks your hairloss will cease. She relates that the author of the system (unclear as to whether or not it was Dr. Riley; she learned about it from him) was bald and that both his father and grandfather were bald (apparent MPB), and quotes him as stating that after starting the exercises his head soon began to exhibit fuzz and that the hair then bagan to grow so that in his 70's he had a full head of hair. She states that the method has helped thousands of people to prevent or reverse both graying (more women, of course, than men regarding the graying) and/or balding. She also explains the healing mechanism involved, stimulating the nerves in the nail beds, building up and restoring the entire nerve force of the body, its electrical nature, etc., which is what reflexology is about. You can find a number of books on the topic (of reflexology) in most large bookstores, and just possibly a reprint in paperback of this one. It was very popular in the '70's!

i heard that waxing your head or ripping your hair out will make it come back thicker. seriously. at first it might not grow back but keep waxing it and wait 6 - 12 months it will all grow back thicker trust me

Its actually the opposite. Women who wax get fewer and fewer hairs over time. Its called traction alopecia and its caused by ripping hair from the hair follicles.

I don't know man......................what if you're wearing a mood ring? Would you grow more hair on that side?

Please let me know because discarded 70's remedies should always be resurrected for a lot of money since they didn't work 30 years ago.

What happens if you rub your cok instead?

I don't think that will work, I suspect that one might have been tried already
