Default Magnesium Oil & Hair growth

I've decided to give Magnesium Oil a try. I've used it on my skin(for absoprtion) and so far I like the results. I.e. I feel better.

Its my understanding that this when applied (sprayed/misted) on the scalp can improve hair growth by dissolving calcium deposits that are or may block hair follicles.

My hair in the crown is way thinner than I'm comfortable with, so this and scalp massages will be a staple for the next 6 months or so. I've neglected doing scalp massages for the past few months.

For those of you that do protective styling by using lo-manipulation "Please massage your scalps", this type of "stimulation/manipulation " is necessary for healthy scalps & hair growth. I'm real disappointed with my "thinness".

Default Re: Magnesium Oil & Hair growth

Where do u buy this? Is there any more information on this oil? Do u think it is possible the "calcium deposits" from relaxer are in the crown and thus slowing the growth in this area? If correct than using internal growth aid and external growth would not be effect because of the blockage?

I definitely agree with the scalp massages. I have tried to increase how often I do these. I hate them though I am hoping to see noticeable improvement in my crown area by December.

Default Re: Magnesium Oil & Hair growth

I'm answering from my phone so I'll try to address all the questions. I first saw this at Whole Foods, but I purchased mine from the local health food store.

Yep, I think that approaching the problem both internally & externally will yield better results. I did well during a stretch a few yrs ago by taking Olive Oil & honey daily (1-2 tsp), the hair growth was healthier & fuller.

I used to relax/texlax every 4-5 weeks. I believe the follicules are damaged, & I hope this helps in this area. So far after 2days of topical applications to my inner elbows, I must admit that I "feel" better mood wise, I've also been misting this on my scalp in the AM.

I've included pictures of my sparsely populated crown as a starting point.

I will definitely look into this. Since being diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis in 2004 my hair follicles are clogged no matter what I do. The scalp scrubs that I have tried, by combining brown sugar and co or oil, have either been too abusive or ineffective. I will research this more because I am dealing with crown thinning and having fine hair is depressing to say the least.

Since I received my scalp massager from Thailand, I massage my scalp everyday. I do it while watching TV, that way I don't think about it. I do at least 5 minutes per day, but trying to work up to 10 minutes per day.

@chicha & others.
No updates as of yet.
I have been traveling frequently over the past few weeks, so I've slaked off on the misting of the scalp, due to protective styling (and laziness).

I'm back on track now.

@Coffee. Thanks for reminding me of the scalp massagers. I'm headed to Bed, Bath, and Beyond for my favorite one today.

I have a question for you Coffee. I just received my scalp massager yesterday and I notice some rough edges around the balls of the gadget that I need to smooth out. My question is, while doing scalp massages with it, does it tangle your hair? Can you explain how you do it. My back grows very slow and I want to massage that area particularly to see if I can get more growth. Thanks

subbing. I am currently using and having good results with panthenol but would like to also try the mag oil. I wonder if I could mix the two.

I have had great results with panthenol and A&D ointment. IDK y I continue trying products. I think I need PJ counseling. ::Shrugs::

I heard that the Mag Oil was great for relaxing the body.

I guess it should work n the rest of the body as well.
