: Massage causing hair loss?
I found this site recently and began the CG method approx 3 weeks ago. I have noticed that my hair is shinier, more moisturised and easier to manage since then. However, I read a post on here that said it´s important to really massage/rub the scalp to make sure it´s clean. Unfortunately I did this with shampoo on my last poo wash and handfuls of hair fell out from where I rubbed my scalp (i.e. from one spot!). I read that massaging oils into the scalp should be good for hair growth so I massaged coconut and almond oil into my scalp and left overnight. The next day I had a shower and combed my hair and 80 hairs fell out! It also looked like a clump of hairs fell out, though there is no bald spot on my head. My hair is noticeably thinner now and I´m really worried and upset. I´m going to try to go to a dermatologist about this now, but I´m wondering if the massaging could be to blame? I didn´t massage hard. I was gentle and only used the pads of my fingers.
I´m really depressed about this now. Has anybody experienced or heard of something similar happening?
