Promote regrowth with scalp massages

Massaging your scalp: a simple gesture with soothing properties. But its relaxing effect is not the only benefit because it also stimulates blood circulation and strengthens the hair.



The benefits of scalp massages in case of hair loss

When you suffer from hair loss, whether acute or chronic, the life cycle of the hair is disrupted and its growth phase (anagen phase) does not function properly. To boost hair, it is necessary to stimulate the hair follicle. And for this, there is nothing like a scalp massage to promote hair growth.
In the case of hair loss, scalp massage is beneficial in providing the hair follicles with the oxygen and nutrients essential for healthy hair growth. The hair follicle cells that form the hair are fast-multiplying cells that need a lot of energy. This energy is provided by oxygen and nutrients supplied by the blood. Improving blood circulation through scalp massage can therefore be considered a natural treatment for hair loss.
The beneficial action of scalp massage on alopecia is also indirect in the case of stress-related hair loss. Its soothing and relaxing action has an anti-stress effect: less stress, less hair loss!

How to massage the scalp to stimulate regrowth

To achieve an optimal anti-hair loss scalp massage, follow these steps:

  • Place your hands on either side of the head, fingers spread apart, and press down with your palms. To apply more force, you can place your elbows on a flat surface. Avoid pressing with your fingernails to avoid irritating the scalp and producing the opposite effect.
  • Massage the scalp with your fingertips and move the skin in small circles.
  • Start at the nape of the neck and gently work your way up to the top of the head and then the forehead.

To optimize the results, it is recommended to perform it daily for a few minutes.
The scalp massage can be done at any time of the day on dry hair or when shampooing. The application of an anti-hair loss lotion or essential oils for hair loss can also be an opportunity to perform this massage.
