Benefits of Scalp Massage

Benefits of scalp massage:

  • Scalp massage may eliminate depression or other stressful or negative emotions.
  • Scalp massage may help alleviate chronic insomnia and encourages restful sleep.
  • In some cases, scalp massage can slow hair loss conditions.
  • It also helps to spread the natural scalp oils to the ends of the hair without the harmful effects of daily brushing.  Sebum, if produced in sufficient amounts, is typically distributed along the length of the hair shaft through normal combing and brushing but can be distributed through fingers at the time of the scalp massage.
  • Provides deep relaxation for the head and scalp which allows blood circulation to flow more easily to the hair roots.
  • Improves circulation thereby providing hair roots with nourishment to help trigger hair growth.  Why? When the scalp or head is constricted or tight due to stress and tension, it blocks adequate blood flow to the hair roots.
  • When scalp massage is repeated on a regular basis, it strengthen the roots of the hair which will help hair growth.
  • When a good moisturizing and nourishing oil is used, it can help add moisture and conditioning to the scalp and the hair enhancing natural textures and making it move vibrant.
  • Moisturized hair is less likely to split and break, which is a wonderful benefit of the oils used for scalp massage.
  • Scalp massage adds natural lustre and shine to the hair.
  • In some cases, scalp massage can relieve itchy scalps, prevent flaking and help with chronic dandruff.  Of course this is dependent on other factors but is a possible benefit.
  • Regular scalp massage can help protect hair from environmental toxins and other weather conditions by helping to strengthen the follicles.
