View Full Version : Now my hair seems to be even

I have a shoulder injury that I'm dealing with. I use heating pads to help relax my muscles. Sometimes I use them just for fun because I enjoy the feeling of the warmth.

Anyway, the right side of my hair has always grown faster than the left. I usually have to trim off much more on that side to keep it even. But it seems ever since I've been using my heating pad the left side has "caught up" to the right, growth wise. I usually lie down with my head resting on my neck/shoulder while I'm using the heating pad so I think the extra heat on my scalp has helped it grow. When I told my sister this she rolled her eyes...but seriously I think its working.

Hmm... interesting! I suppose the extra stimulus from the hot pad could encourage the hair follicles to grow, such as like scalp massage, peppermint treatments, etc.

Fascinating, I agree with you both that it must be the extra heat.

Maybe your sister should give it a go to prove her wrong ;)

I wonder could your bad shoulder be tensing up in a way that makes your hair look like its falling lower down your back?

I think I may have to try this just in case!
