Hair loss problem is one of the biggest beautification threat that can affect both man and women. I hope you already know there are many reasons that can guide to cause thinning hair and hair loss or even male pattern baldness.
Such causes are ranging from the simple and temporary- a vitamin deficiency- to the more complex like nutritional hormonal imbalance, chemotherapy, thyroid disease, anemia or any other underlying health disorders.
It’s also true that there are many remedies in which some of them can be taken care in staying home as well to promote healthy hair. And scalp massage is one of them. It’s a very effective way to foster blood circulation in hair root and follicles.
I admit some of you might take it as a skeptical medication. I also used to think likewise until I came to know about Debra Jaliman, MD, a dermatologist and the author of Skin Rules: Trade Secrets from a Top New York Dermatologist. She explains how scalp massage can excel the blood flow in hair root.
So I tried it and here are the true benefits that I’ve found after a few days of practices.
- Improve Scalp condition and Blood Circulation:
Poor circulation on the scalp is a negative factor which can guide to excel the hair loss problems. In order to maintain perfect hair growth and production, scalps require a healthy circulation.
Similarly, it’s also important to maintain a proper quantity and quality of blood, lymph, oxygen and nutrients circulation in the hair organs.
You will be surprised to know that therapeutic scalp massage is the fastest and possibly the most effective way to foster the circulation process (bringing the blood, oxygen, and nutrition) to the hair vessels.
But why messaging is so effective? Because when you rub your head, it helps to warm up the hair organs that lead your hair follicles to widen up to receive the necessary nutrition more effectively.
I used different varieties of scalp massage oil as thyme, rosemary and lavender that were great in bringing positive results. As soon as kneading pressure warms the skull’s skin, I started to feel the difference.
We all know any sort of chronic stress like physical and emotional are very harmful to the natural hair growth process. Daily scalp rubbing improves relaxation and increases the chemical that is responsible to make us feeling good.
Besides increasing blood flow, scalp messaging can aids you relaxation and reduce stress-related feelings. It can reduce the stress hormones that are the main culprit to cause hair loss condition like alopecia areata and telogen effluvium.
Slow rubbing allows the body to function with increased efficiency and increase calmness of mind, also improves the hair follicles to grow and keep up the growth rate of natural hair production.
Strengthens Roots and Hair Shaft:
Just like our skin, our hair roots also need to be pampered and moisture. In order to maintain the proper hair growth, it’s crucial to maintain the perfect environment. A deep scalp massage with oil or lubricants can help strengthen the roots of the hair.
When the roots are strong enough it can produce more healthy hairs, and nourishes the hair-shafts, promoting new hair growth, protect the hair from breakage and split ends and triggers strengthening current hair.
Regular massage for hair loss involving oils also helps to moisturize dry skins that prevent it from flaking and shedding itself as dandruff.
Experience Thicker Hair:
As age’s increases, muscles become atrophy. It’s already proven that doing massage is an important muscle strengthening exercise that helps to strengthen our thinner hair. On the other hand, thinner hairs can cause from immature cells, weaker root, and shrink hair follicles. When hairs become stronger, it reduces the chance of hair loss at a significant level.
Protects Hair from Sun and Harsh Weather:
Every day we are exposed to sun rays and harsh weather. According to the experts climate wind, humidity, heat plays a big role in damaging our hair.
Like on a humid day your hair sucks water vapor from the air that causes the total hair growth mechanism to be broken down that affects to grow your hair smoothly. The physical side bond of our hair might be broken as well.
Some styling products might help to seal the hair shaft but truly they can’t do that much of improvements or limits to what the products can achieve. However, if you regularly rub and knead with lubricants, it can give you quick relief from hair organs’ misshapen.
It helps to soften the hair and make it more manageable in terms of dealing long hair as well.
Besides these benefits, there are some other positive side effects which are also very effective in terms of hair fall. You don’t need to use shampoos which contain harsh and harmful chemical contaminants that sometimes we use to prevent flacks and dry scalp.
It’s also beneficial in preventing headaches that let you get a sound sleep.
From my own experience of scalp massage for more than 2 years, I have found significant improvements. Scalp massage feels very pleasant but yes, I must admit it takes time to get a noticeable difference.
There is no doubt that it’s a worthy hair treatment. Then again, if you want to give it a pace try some of the hair loss prevention shampoo in addition with your daily head massage; just like I’m doing from last year.
Adding such serum is no harm and doctors suggest that it works best in thinning hair due to age & hormonal imbalance; my hair specialist said.
