Massaging The Scalp
Like your skin, your hair goes through phases. Weather conditions, hair products, hormones, and your overall health can have a significant impact on its texture, appearance and growth.
Massaging any part of the body increases blood flow, and can help with fatigue, stress, and headaches. This is especially true for scalp massages, because they don't just benefit the skin and scalp, but also the hair follicles and hair. The increased blood flow can stimulate the follicles in such a way that hair will grow faster, which is a great benefit for those who wish to increase the length of their locks.
It's important to note that only oils made specifically for the hair should be used for scalp massage. Here are essential oils will help nourish your scalp:
Peppermint oil helps to improve circulation and acts as a natural cleanser.
Tea tree oil helps soothe a dry, itchy scalp and clears it of minuscule dermatitis issues.
Chamomile oil soothes an inflamed, itchy scalp.
Lemon oil helps with the management of dandruff.
Almond and castor oil help to promote hair growth.
Due to the deep state of relaxation that it induces, it is also a good idea not to schedule any important work immediately after the massage.
The most common mistake is rubbing in a superficial way; in fact, the massage should be deep and slow, and should physically move the scalp in order to stimulate blood flow.
After a massage on your scalp, you can either wash your hair immediately or leave the essential oils on for a couple of hours to penetrate and do their work.
