Does brushing help your hairi to grow?

I seem to remember brushing my hair loads as a teenager often with my head upside down to encourage blood flow to the root. But does this work?

I think it is a myth all it does is spread the oils down the hair shaft.
You would have to really massage the scalp to stimulate the blood flow but I don't think it really has an affect on hair growth.

Yes, I think I've read that brushing it helps distribute the oils and make it shiny, but doesn't make it grow faster. I think it grows at the same rate no matter what you do with it.

Nope.

I think anything that stimulates the roots is a good thing.
