Unproven yogic Rx: This sounds unlikely but it's not impossible this might help some. Apparently the source is yogic practice, for which I have a great deal of respect, so i would not call it a "myth, " but there is not any research proving (or disproving) this technique. It is harmless to try and might conceivably help some! see http://yogaandasana.Blogspot.Com/2012/03/how-rubbing-nails-works-on-lost-hair-hi.Html.
