When I was young, I had extremely fine hair. It was and still is poker straight, but being so fine, it never looked nice when it was long. I tried short hairstyles, but the combination of my square face and limp hair was not a desirable look for me. For years I was very self-conscious about this.
One of the things that drove me crazy was the cowlick that existed right at my bang. Being so straight, my hair strands would sit flat against my head, with the exception of this twist at the top right side. I would try to style it so it would sit like the rest of the bang, but it had a mind of its own.
Also, in my late twenties, my natural blonde colour was starting to fade. The colour wasn’t as vibrant and my sister, a hairstylist, recommended I get highlights. I will never forget this terrifying moment. She had just pulled the hair strands to be tinted through the plastic cap and put on the dye. In about 30 seconds, I asked her if my head was supposed to be on fire as it was burning so bad. Running to the sink and washing off the solution, all the hair that had been pulled through the plastic fell off.
I had always been hypersensitive to chemicals, but I never expected this. I knew then that however my hair aged, I would have to deal with it naturally. I expected that in a few short years I would be dealing with lifeless, mousy coloured hair, and I wouldn’t be able to do much with it.
I was thirty years old when I tapped into the healing energy that is now Fluid Isometrics and Block Therapy. It took me years to really understand what I was intuitively doing to the fascia, and to recognize the pattern of how tissue ages.
All things in life develop, change and evolve based on the Fibonacci sequence, the spiral pattern of everything in nature: galaxies, flowers, nautilus seashells, and the body -- even how it ages. This spiraling that accumulates with time in the fascia creates hooks which grip onto bone. This has many implications regarding hair as we age.
Firstly, as we age in a forward, rotational direction, the scalp migrates away from correct alignment under the force of gravity and unconscious posture and breath. The fascia grips to the skull in the effort to keep the cells in their rightful place. These grips begin to strangle the hair follicles, cutting them off from their blood supply. This takes away the health of the hair and can cause aging in the form of hair losing its natural and youthful colour and thinning. Secondly, the grips attach to the skull in a spiral pattern, creating cowlicks.

Once I began to understand this and how it relates to hair health, I began working on the skull itself with my hands. Thankfully, I started to see changes in my hair quality and was able to undo the spiral at the bang that created the cowlick that gave me grief. Today, I am thrilled that I have a full head of hair that is the same natural colour as when I was young, but with a thicker and fuller feel that I love to keep long.
I am going to be sharing my approach in a 60 minute hair class as part of the 21 Day Natural Facelift Program.
Not only will this benefit hair health, but will also stimulate blood flow to the brain, the eyes, will lift the face and provide health to all the structures in and around the area. Working the scalp is such a key component of achieving natural facelift results, this class is a must in this revised program.
Take a look below at what Gary Sharpe shared about the benefits he experienced from the Hair Health class.
“Has anyone else tried the Hair Health class? Amazing! Apart from improving hair health, I think this is going to be a vital class for neurological problems and for addressing issues such as brain fog. I got one of those hot flushes when doing it, which tells me it is doing something powerful. My mood was much brighter after doing it, and I slept better than I have been.
I am going to do it daily for a week and see... My scalp is currently pretty much glued down to the skull, and my intuition is that this is a major part of the reason for my neurological issues. Somewhat hard to grab on to clumps of hair with a bald spot on top, but I will monitor this area for any hair regrowth!
UPDATE after 3 weeks:
I have now been doing the hair health class daily for about 3 weeks, not really for the hair, but because I figured that having my scalp glued down firmly and tightly to my skull wasn't helping my neurological condition (Parkinson's Disease). Since starting it, I have had significant symptom relief (less pain, less dystonia in neck, less brain fog, PD meds working better - less side effects, work quicker, extended effects).
However, my hair has certainly improved too, it looks shinier, and I have had a couple of unsolicited comments that my hair is looking nice, which serves as a sign that the process is definitely working.
I have a bald area on top of my head (male pattern baldness), and I noticed when I pressed my fingers to it, it feels waxy and feels like ice is being applied to my skull, indicating to me that bald areas may in fact actually be where the fascia is more significantly problematic. The scalp on the sides and back of my skull is definitely starting to glide under my fingers and is not just completely superglued to the skull now - I always use this degree of glide as a self-assessment that the process is working. ”
