Your scalp is sensible, tense, uncomfortable and lacking flexibility ?

This can make your hair straight and more likely to fall. The scalp massage, even if it isn’t done by a professional, brings a lot of benefits. It reactivates, relaxes and oxygenates your scalp’s blood microcirculation. But it also benefits greatly your hair.

WHAT DO YOU GAIN FROM IT ?

It enhances the nurturing capacities of your capillary cells, allowing them to regenerate your hair more easily. If many professionals offer the scalp massage among their services, it is possible for you to learn a few very profitable gestures.

HOW TO MASSAGE YOUR SCALP YOURSELF

Sit down and put your elbows on a table. With your fingers spread, massage your scalp by moving it using circular forms. Proceed to this exercise from your neck to your forehead, passing through the top of your head. Then, do it the other way. Do not forget that it’s your scalp that needs to move, not your fingers on it.

Don’t panic if some of your hair start falling during the massage : those are dead and will leave their place to stronger roots.

AT WHAT PACE ?

The ideal frequency of this massage depends on your type of hair :

  • 3 times a week for normal hair
  • Everyday for dry hair
  • Only 2 times a week for greasy hair and before the shampooing.

PREPARE YOUR OWN MASSAGE OIL

You can multiply the benefits of a scalp massage with a massage oil. The ones sold on the market may be suitable for you but mixing a plant oil (coconut, kernel or sunflower) with a few drops of essential oil can show more advantages. Count around 30 drops of essential oil for 100 ml of plant oil.

Choose your own essential oils for their properties like, for example, fighting against sebum, against dandruff as well as bringing freshness and softness to your hair.
