Some say their product helps clean and unclog the pores releasing hair fiber trapped underneath the scalp skin. Apparently the claim is that the openings of hair follicles get clogged with sebum. This clogging stops the hair fiber from getting out. The fiber then grows under the skin. Removing whatever is plugging the hair follicle will release the hair growing underneath.

If hair was growing underneath the skin it would effectively be an ingrowing hair. This would result in extensive inflammation for anyone with areas of hair loss. Also, alopecias have been researched by taking skin biopsies from volunteers with the condition. These biopsies are then processed histologically for analysis under the microscope. In the long history of alopecia research there has never been any evidence of alopecia from hair being trapped under the skin due to pore clogging.
