I was told by my alternative health care doctor that this little plastic mallet with steel spikes on the end of it would help my hair grow back if I tap it gently on my bald spots. Watch and see. And sorry this little metal spiked device is actually called a Pear Blossom, not a Prickly Pear like I called it in the video.

How do you get a hold of one??
Comment by Laura Zinger on August 21, 2008 at 8:51pm

I think you have to go through an acupuncturist or someone who practices Chinese medicine. I tried looking for one online and I could not find them anywhere! My doctor said they should be really cheap like $1, but he buys them in bulk from somewhere. If you really want one, let me know and I'll see if I can get another one from my doctor!

Hi, that sounds great, I want one!
I'm gonna try to get a hold of an alternative health care doctor.
I love the wig your wearing, it looks so good, where did you get it from?
Your blue one is super cool too.

I got both of my wigs on ebay! Just type in blue wig for the one in my picture, and type in red for the one I'm wearing in the video.

You will love alternative health care doctors! They are amazing!

That looks very interesting...

I was recently introduced to a lady that mentioned this was prescribed to her. I thought it was very odd and I hadn't heard of this device before, how interesting now see a video of it here. I think it makes perfect sense that you may possibly be able to stimulate the hair follicles. Years ago my derm. suggested daily head massages and pulsating showers.... maybe there was actually something to that advice! Thanks for the great video Baldiegirl!

HA! I think I would prefer the daily head massages and pulsating showers though! ;) I can't say for sure if this tool is a huge "cure-all" but I definitely do see hair growth coming back in. It is slow going, but really interesting to see the hair come in in some places!

Thanks for the comment!
