The nightly scalp massage is capable of stimulating blood flow leading to an increase in the rate of hair growth. However, the only way to realize that growth is to be consistent and track your progress.
Like other hair care practices, I’ve done them, yet I was not consistent. As I mentioned in the previous routines I recently added (consistently) to my hair care routine, I’m ready to be my best self.
I won’t go into the benefits of doing scalp massages. Yep, you can read all about that by clicking on the link.
What I will share is how I’ve done my scalp massages in the past and how I plan to do them now.
You can judge and determine how to do your own nightly scalp massage or even take some tips from the different methods I share in the video below.
How I Scalp Massage
Often times you’ll see people using oils to massage their scalp. I am doing so as well. Just not every single time.
I don’t want my hair to get too oily so I’m using hair oils in my scalp only every 2-3 days. In between time, I’m simply massaging my scalp with the pads of my fingers with no product added.
It’s the actual act of the massage that helps with the stimulation, not the application of an oil. When using an oil, you’re boosting the effects of the massage because the oil will penetrate your scalp feeding your cells and tissues vital nutrients.
I truly enjoy doing a nightly scalp massage. They help with more than just stimulating hair growth. Massaging your scalp fosters a sense of self care and relaxation. And did I mention it’s free? I like free!
