So it means your scalp and hair follicles receive a bountiful supply of blood that provides the vitamins, nutrients and broken down substances of the food you eat (like glucose, amino acids and fats although the brain feeds primarily on glucose)
Interestingly, acupuncture also reduces inflammation of the scalp. Increased blood flow to the scalp will mean toxic substances that pile up in the blood vessels of the scalp, which can harm the tissues here and cause inflammation, are flushed away – and this is the basis for which acupuncture reduces inflammation of the scalp.
Another way acupuncture, specifically electro-acupuncture (which is acupuncture with a low electric current), can cause hair growth causes is the effect it causes on special cells of the body called mast cells.
Mast cells in the dermis (the layer of skin immediately below our outer skin) are caused to release substances that enhance the growth of hair. The secretory products of mast cells act by stimulating hair follicles during the anagen phase of hair development.
