5 reasons why you should incorporate scalp massages
Do you ever look forward to going to the hair salon just for that 2-minute scalp massage they give you while washing your hair? Yes? Okay…we are not the only ones. So why not make this a daily or weekly ritual since you love it so much? We have compiled 5 reasons why you should incorporate scalp massages on the daily. Along with the surprising benefits that come along with them.
Removes Dandruff and Product Build-Up
The first benefit to discuss is that when a scalp massage is combined with oil like our Scalp Treatment, magic happens! This will take your relaxing scalp massage up to the next level of relaxation. The soothing aromatic scent of rosemary and Tea Tree Oil will instantly make you feel zen and at peace. If you are prone to dandruff and experience an irritated and itchy scalp, we recommend using our Problematic Scalp Treatment. The other ingredients found in the Scalp Treatment work towards clarifying your scalp from product build-up with their anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. We recommend incorporating a natural hair oil into your scalp massage routine. However, dry scalp massages with no products are great as well; especially if you are not planning on washing your hair.
BOOSTS HAIR GROWTH
Another amazing benefit of a scalp massage is that they stimulate your hair follicles and promote hair growth. According to an article from the Huffington Post, “Blood flow to the hair cells means healthier hair growing out of your scalp.” This is the truth, healthy hair begins at the roots. This is particularly important to keep in mind for those of you who have tried all sorts of topical hair treatments that do not treat the scalp. More times than not, a scalp treatment is what your hair really needs in order to kick start your hair growth and maintain strong beautiful hair.
I’m sure you can all agree that once your hairdresser beings to massage your scalp, you instantly want to close your eyes and fall asleep. This is because there are certain pressure points on the scalp that make you super relaxed. Scalp massages are also said to lower blood pressure and slow your heart rate. If you suffer from anxiety, take a few minutes out of your day and do a 2-minute scalp massage to calm yourself down.
We could all get better sleep, right? Implementing scalp massages into your daily and weekly routine will dramatically improve the quality of your sleep due to its relaxing properties we mentioned above. If you struggle with getting a good night’s rest, we suggest doing a 5-minute scalp massage just before you go to bed. This will get your body and mind mentally prepared to fall asleep, and stay asleep.
Now you are informed on all the benefits of a scalp massage, you are probably wondering how often should you do them. Well, it is recommended to do a scalp massage about twice a week for 15 minutes. However, you can break it up and do a few minutes daily and incorporate it into your bedtime routine.
