Default Can you Feel your hair growing?

I have been experiencing a lot of inner scalp movement lately. Itdoes not itch but it feels as if there is a lot of activity going on with my roots. It is strange and it happens in spurts. I was told that you cannot feel your hair growing but I beg to differ. does anyone else experience this?

I think a lot of people can, even though some don't attribute the feeling to hair growth. Many members mentioned an itching sensation when they first started taking PP Biotin. Check out this thread for more details: http://www.longhaircareforum.com/sho...;Number=44486.

For me, I sometimes get an overall slightly sore feeling or a tingly feeling on my scalp (which I think may be accelerated growth) when I'm consistent with my vitamins and a good diet.

I mentioned in another thread that I can feel crawly sensations on my scalp, especially after the MSM. My twice/day yoga scalp exercise helps to relieve this feeling. I'm just glad it's my hair growing and not something else.

I often feel sum undescribeable activity goin' on in my scalp. It doesn't itch, it's not sore, it doesn't tingle.....goodness, how can I describe it ... it's sorta like a "pulling" sensation...almost as though I'm wearing a head full of magnetic rollers for a rollerset ... I know, I'm flippin' ... naw , I've dun flipped Seriously, I can feel something goin' on...

I'm in the same boat. I was under the assumption that one CANNOT feel hair growth, but I do beg to differ. My scalp tingles in some areas, and coincidently, it is after taking MSM as well. It's definately doing something!

Sweetpea, I know this is off the subject; but your bun looks awesome in your avatar. I was looking for a bun form today and only found a thin one, Im gonna keep long for the thick one. But what do you secure your hair with after putting it over the form and how do you tuck your hair in? My hair is right at 2" past my shoulders (wet) and not as thick as yours; its rather fine actually. HELP

Sweet Pea those are DA BOMB!

I picked up a pack recently and was pleasantly suprised. No where near as much of my hair comes out when I remove these as when I use "ouchless bands". With those, my hair tends to get caught in the glue that is used to hold it together where the metal would orindarily be in most ponytail holdrs. These are like cut stockings - but they have more stretch and regain their shaper better. These and my re-disovered "bolitas" as keepers for life!

Nyambura,
I purchased them at Walmart. If you don't find them there, try Target, Walgreens, even a dollar store. If you don't find these exact ones, don't worry...something similar will work, just not the ouchless ones with the glue that connects it.

I purchased my foam donut at Sally's for $2 and some change.
