When your hairline is shifting inward, it is the most obvious sign that you are aging. This is often taken for granted by some while others don’t know what to do about it. That’s why most of the middle and advanced-aged people suffer from thinning hair. And, to their constant chagrin, most males suffer from this misfortune.
Caring for your hair doesn’t stop with washing, shampooing, and styling it. You have to pay close attention to it in the same way you pay attention to other parts of your body.
The hair needs nourishment just like the rest of your system to keep it in place and keep it from moving to your bathroom shower drain.
In your campaign for a healthier body most of the time, the hair is not included. You work out every inch of your body, but not the hair. There are no exercises for it anyway, you might think. But decades ago, Sanford Bennett, became a celebrity for experiments that led to his physical rejuvenation at 70.
Besides all the exercises he devised to make his face younger and his bodily muscles more robust, he also devised an exercise for a healthier and stronger scalp that could trigger the thicker growth of the hair.
To Bennett, the scalp, just like any other part of the body if exercised, would increase in strength and elasticity. This is because there are microscopic glands and muscles in the scalp. The law that applies in exercising the major muscles of the body also applies to those.
So how does it go? Alternately pull your hair in all directions and massage the scalp with the pads of your fingers while you lie in bed. This will improve blood circulation and eventually feed the roots of the hair with the nutrients it needs. It also exercises the muscles in the scalp making the muscles stronger, which will logically hold the hair more strongly.
And since the blood is pumped through the microscopic glands and muscles in the scalp, they are sure to increase in size, strength, and elasticity. This naturally results in much fewer hair falling and healthier-looking hair.

One of the best refreshers for the hair and the scalp is the alternate washing of hot and cold water. It also accelerates the blood circulation there. Wash the hair first with hot water, as hot as you can bear it. Then follow up with very cold water (but without using ice). Applying hot and cold towels alternately can be a good substitute. This procedure should be repeated at least five or six times.
