Curly Hair Tip: Massage Your Scalp

Massaging the scalp will help stimulate blood flow, which helps feed the hair follicles, preventing hair loss and restoring healthy hair.

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.

The kneading pressure applied by massage warms the skin and opens up blood vessels to increase flow and boost circulation. Increased circulation means that the cells of the hair follicle will receive more of the nutrients necessary to optimal hair growth function.

Massaging your scalp for 5 minutes a day can make your hair stronger, thicker, and grow in faster. You can choose to do it dry, or use an oil or scalp treatment to assist you. You can even do it while you are shampooing.

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.

    Massaging the scalp is really the great thing for the hair growth. Specially, when we use pure coconut oil for the scalp massage, it's truly fantastic stuff for the growing hair. I have found some of tremendous information from this source. Thanks for sharing.
