Massage it the act of kneading rubbing and putting pressure on the skin with your fingers and hands can provide many benefits for the body. The biggest benefit to massage is increased blood circulation at the surface of the skin. This benefit, and many others, is why many individuals suffering from premature hair loss or other hair problems turn to scalp massage for help.

The Benefits of Scalp Massage

A properly done scalp massage can increase blood circulation to the hair follicles, increase relaxation, decrease stress, condition the scalp, and boost the strength of the hair roots and hair follicle. The kneading pressure applied by massage warms the skin and opens up blood vessels to increase flow and boost circulation. In addition, it helps reduce collagen buildup which restricts the hair follicle aperture. Increased circulation means that the cells of the hair follicle will receive more of the nutrients necessary to optimal hair growth function. The rubbing motion promotes relaxation and feels good, thus increasing the production of “feel good” chemicals that work to lower levels of stress hormone in the body. Lowering stress levels allow your organs to function more efficiently, thus boosting your hair follicle’s ability to grow hair.

If you use nourishing oil during scalp massage the oils will condition the scalp, reducing the occurrence of dandruff and dry skin that can interfere with the hair growth process. Oils also condition the hair shaft and root lessening the chances of brittleness, hair strand breakage, and split ends.  Look for separate email on what oils are conducive for healthy scalp and hair promotion.

How to Correctly Perform Scalp Massage

While any stimulation to the skin of the scalp can increase circulation, a properly done scalp massage can deliver all of the benefits needed for increased hair and scalp health. Begin by choosing a massage oil that is appropriate for your particular hair problem. Warm the oil by placing a small amount in a dish and placing that dish over a bowl of hot water. Dip your fingers into the oil and apply it to your scalp by using your fingers to part different section of your hair. Once your scalp is covered in oil you can begin the massage.

For the most benefits begin massaging your scalp at the hairline above your forehead and work your way back to the base of your skull. Use medium pressure while moving your fingers in a tight circular motion in order to promote relaxation and thoroughly condition the scalp and hair. Once you have reached your neck, begin the process again for the sides of your head by massaging from above the temple to the back of your head.

Once you have massaged your entire scalp with circular motions you can begin the process again, only this time use a little more pressure and more vigorous movements. This step in the massage will increase circulation for better blood flow and help remove dry or dead skin cells that can inhibit hair growth. Once the massage is finished leave the oil on your hair for at least thirty minutes to get the best conditioning benefits. After thirty minutes wash and style your hair as usual.
