There are many ways to stimulate hair regrowth. One of the most effective ways is by massaging the scalp. Massage is one of the most soothing and relieving stress-buster. Not only because of the stimulation it provides to the scalp tissues, but because it caters to our need for touch therapy as well. Touch therapy provides comfort in times of stress. It allows release of negative emotions and is, for the most part, a form of healing and relaxation. The touch therapy that massage provides relaxes the muscles in the neck area and promotes a sound sleep during the night.
Massaging the scalp for 5–10 minutes a day improves circulation that is essential in hair health. It greatly benefits those who suffer from hair loss or thinning hair as it manually removes pore-clogging grime that has lodged the scalp surfaces. As it does, it promotes better absorption of nutrients and better tissue oxygenation.
As a natural hair loss treatment, massage enables hair regrowth without the unwanted side effects of synthetic products or medications. Massage is able to naturally grow hair with some help from certain oils that contain vitamin E like jojoba oil, rosemary oil, henna and lavender oil. The vitamin E that is found in these oils strengthens existing hair and prevents dry and flaky scalp. It provides a healthy environment that paves the way for hair regrowth.
Massaging the scalp with these natural oils make hair soft and more manageable. It increases the vibrancy and luster of hair by spreading the natural oil. This also serves as our protection from the damaging effects of harsh weather and sun.
The proper way to massage the scalp is to take a small amount of any of these oils and using the fingertips, massage all over the scalp. It should be done vigorously and in circular movements for about 5–10 minutes. By doing this daily, you are on your way to winning the battle of thinning hair and hair loss.
