What can be more relaxing than a thorough head massage? 

Head massage relaxes the body and gives you a new energy boost. Did you know head massage is a ticket to healthy hair? A scalp can make your hair healthy and shining. 

Our scalp is often laden with dead cells and build-up from sweat particles or some harmful hair products that we use. These build-ups and dead cells stress the hair follicles and make it hard for the hair to grow. A dirty scalp can also lead to hair thinning and hair loss. Let’s explore how effective head massage is for hair loss.

Head Massage for hair loss has been used by different cultures worldwide for ages. Massage helps improve blood circulation in the scalp, and excess oil production hinders hair growth. An effective head massage helps distribute the hair’s natural oils to protect and condition the hair, increase lustre and vibrancy, and strengthen the hair follicles. The increased blood flow in the head/ scalp helps to nourish the follicles. Stretching and pulling of hair during massage can occur, and people often experience some hair loss during the process. A healthy person loses around 100 strands daily, which get replaced by the new growth of hair; therefore, a few strands lost during massage are not a matter of concern.

It is also recommended to massage your scalp while shampooing as it not only cleanses the scalp and hair and aids in blood circulation. 

Head massage for hair loss can be done with essential oils like lavender, tea tree or dry massage with just fingers. However, there is a need for a patch test before using the oils on the scalp to check for allergies which can further add on to the hair loss problem

The advantages of head massage can go beyond just hair loss prevention:

  • It can lubricate and condition the scalp, which boosts healthy hair.
  • Massage can soften and condition the hair, making it easy to manage.
  • Massage can also help protect hair from the effects of the sun, harsh weather, and other environmental insults by improving resiliency.
  • It replenishes and rejuvenates dry and damaged hair, further reducing  excessive split ends 

Dermatologists approve head massages to promote good hair health as it helps in good blood circulation and keeps the hair lubricated.
