We have all done things for hair that sooner or later made us facepalm at the memory, right?
Well, my dumbest thing was that for some 3 months I slept with the foot end of my bed raised thinking it would help my hair grow.
The theory was that doing so would make more blood flow to the head and thus to the follicles.
Of course its up for discussion how stupid it was exactly. Its not like it could hurt, but it was definitely dumb.
The weird way of sleeping ended when I learned about cells and exchange of nutrients. When the cell wants a nutrient, it opens chemical channels to “grab” the nutrient from the blood cells as they pass by the cell in the blood vessels. It is not possible to force “extra” nutrients into the cells. Increasing the blood flow isn’t a bad thing of course, but its not increasing the absorption of nutrients.
We were all noobies at some point, right?
