Let’s get right into it. Scalp massages are basically massages done on the scalp.
Scalp massages are a great method to boost hair growth. It helps increase and stimulate blood flow to the root of the hair and improves blood circulation to the scalp.
Scalp massages also stimulates the scalp to produce thicker hair as it tends to stretch the follicles beneath the scalp. It helps unclog the scalp as well.
Doing a scalp massage also helps hair products, such as hair oils, shampoos, conditioners and so on, to work well.
Another plus to this, would be that it relaxes you and reduces tension and stress.
How To Do A Scalp Massage
Scalp massages are done lightly on the scalp, meaning you don’t have to rigorous about it, it’s not a workout and it does not necessarily have to involve using an oil.
You can use your fingertips, moving them on your scalp in circular motions and working your way on and around your scalp.
You can do it for five minutes several times a day and that’s another great thing about this, you can do it anytime. You can do it before you sleep, while taking a shower or while watching your late night show, it’s up to you. I usually do mine severally but I keep to the one I do in the evenings, sometimes before I sleep and it feels good.
Another way to do your scalp massage is by using a scalp massager. Scalp massagers, either hand-held or electric, are just as the name implies, they’re made just to massage your scalp.
So you don’t necessarily have to use your fingers if you don’t want to.
You can carry out your scalp massage while shampooing or conditioning your hair.
You can gently massage your scalp before you rinse out your shampoo or conditioner, or while you rinse it out. This helps improve the conditioning and overall working of the hair products on the hair.
Using an oil
You can also include an essential oil such as lavender or peppermint oils while massaging your scalp but make sure to mix it with a base oil such as jojoba, olive and coconut oils first.
One or two drops of the essential oil with a tablespoon of the base oil is a good ratio to use. Also, do a patch test on your hand to make sure you’re not allergic before using it on your scalp.
Scalp massages have a lot of benefits and can be done in a variety of ways, just make sure to take your time to perfect the technique that works for you.
