The skin on your scalp is just as important as the skin on your face, but it’s often neglected because it’s hidden under your beautiful hair. While diet and exercise contribute to scalp health, a little scalp maintenance can go a long way in achieving luscious locks of hair. Here are 5 benefits of a quick scalp massage.
Scalp Massage Benefits 1: Hair Growth
Your hair won’t grow without adequate nutrients. Massaging your scalp can improve blood circulation and stimulate the follicles. Grab your favorite hair oil or growth serum and use the balls of your fingertips to massage your scalp in small circular motions. Massage each section for at least 30 seconds to a minute. This can be done twice daily or as needed.
Scalp Massage Benefits 2: Remove Build-Up
While doing a pre-shampooing treatment, section your hair into six sections, spray your scalp with warm water and use a few drops of warm oil to massage the dirt and product buildup in each section prior to shampooing your hair. Once you target your scalp with AROMASE scalp shampoo, you can use the same circular motion to help your shampoo dissolve the dirt.
Scalp Massage Benefits 3: Destress
Stress can cause hair loss, so treat your scalp to a spa day. Use an essential oil like rosemary, eucalyptus, or mint to gently massage your scalp and enjoy the soothing aroma as it wafts through the air. They also improve blood flow.
Scalp Massage Benefits 4: Calm The Scalp
Irritating products, bad practices and genetic factors can lead to scalp discomfort. A few years ago, I tried a new shampoo. I caused an aggressive reaction where my scalp peeled and flaked. Using an olive / lavender oil mix helped soothe my scalp as my skin was shedding. Get a few drops of your preferred oil and massage the scalp twice daily.
Scalp Massage Benefits 5: Detangle With Ease
Detangling the roots can be difficult when you have curly or coily hair. When you massage your scalp first, you allow your fingers to loosen your strands at the roots and make it easier to detangle with your preferred method.
