She said: "Did you know that rubbing your fingernails together like this daily, stimulates the brain to send signals to adult stem cells to revive dormant and unproductive hair follicles.

"It also increases blood flow to the hair follicles for healthier hair growth.

"You think I'm crazy? Google it."

And it turns out that Helen is right.


According to Health Shots, this practice shows its impact on the hair as the nerves below the nail bed are connected to the scalp and regular nail rubbing stimulates blood flow and oxygen to the scalp.

And as Helen says, it also helps rejuvenate hair follicles and enhances hair growth.

If you fancy giving it a go, all you need to do is curl the fingers in to form a half fist and rub the fingernails of each hand against each other briskly for around ten minutes.

And don’t worry if you’ve got acrylic nails, Helen said that it will still work. 

Helen confirmed that you can either do this all at once or spread the 10 minutes throughout the day.

So there’s no need to sit in a hair salon for hours or spend hundreds of pounds on products – you can do this hack anywhere and you won’t need to spend a penny. 

Helen’s video has clearly impressed numerous people as it has racked up 331.7k views.

It has 19k likes and 404 comments.

Many TikTok users were impressed with the hack and took to the comments to express this.

One person said: “I’ve been doing this because of anxiety since I was a child. I do have a lot of hair.”
