How to stimulate facial hair follicles

Updated February 21, 2017

Some men and women experience hair loss as they age due to pattern baldness, stress or improper nutrition. Hair loss occurs not only on the scalp, but all over the body, including the face. Improper facial hair growth sometimes signals a lack of testosterone, so check with your doctor if you suddenly experience facial hair loss. If your facial hair growth gradually reduces, work harder on eating right, exercise, and stress reduction to keep your body healthy.

Take a multivitamin that contains magnesium, zinc, copper and B vitamins. These minerals help stimulate hair growth in your entire body by promoting oxygenation that helps hair follicles grow.

Increase oxygenation further by working out. Perform aerobic exercise, such as walking or jogging, for at least 30 minutes, 3 times a week.

Apply a moisturiser to your face every night before bed.

Massage your hair follicles. Dip your fingertips in massage oil and rub your fingers into the skin on your face. This helps stimulate hair follicles and spread natural skin oils.
