Stimulating the scalp is often overlooked. But if you just use the tips of your fingers to massage the scalp, this will stimulate scalp blood circulation. The blood flows to the scalp, which helps nutrients get to your hair follicles more quickly, thus allowing the follicles to produce hair more quickly. A scalp massage also allows oxygen to reach the hair. Oxygen is essential for healthy hair. Also, a scalp massage can decrease stress, which takes its toll on hair. If you skip scalp massaging, or don’t include it in your daily regimen, just remember that it only takes 5 minutes to stimulate the hair, allowing hair to grow faster and making it thicker and stronger. 5 minutes, that’s it, and you’ll be on your way to a healthier scalp!
If you want to reduce or get rid of dandruff, add drops of peppermint, rosemary and sage oils to 1 tbsp. of vegetable oil to scalp. The oils will also condition hair shaft and root, preventing breakage, split ends and brittleness.
To massage the scalp, start at hairline before moving to the sides of your head, all the while making circles with your fingertips. After doing the back of your head, work your way to the front. If you perform this simple hair function, do it for 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes at night. For thinning hair, add lavender because it balances oil production in hair. To slow down hair fall, add coconut oil while massaging the scalp. To promote hair growth, add rosemary oil. For brittle hair, add oils such as sesame, lavender or almond.
If you are consistent and vigilant, you will see results in no time! Just remember to use the pads of your fingers and never your nails when massaging the scalp.
