We all know that the most common hair care tips and tricks are to use hair masks, and hair oils, and reduce the amount of heat products. However, did you know that there is another way to care for your hair that is entirely cost-effective? Today we’re going to be talking about the ins and outs of scalp massages, and how they can help your hair!
Helps Reduce Stress Levels
First, let's discuss the scalp! The head is full of nerves so massages can help relax the scalp by stimulating the nerve endings. This can also help reduce muscle tension, resulting in lower blood pressure, and helps reduce the levels of stress hormones!
Promotes Hair Growth
Scalp massages can also assist in the promotion of hair growth. A study was done in Japan, and the results showed that those who consistently did hair massages experienced an increase in hair thickness after 25 weeks. This was a result of the increased blood flow in the scalp!
Helps against Hair Loss
Scalp massages can also help combat hair loss by keeping your Oxidative stress levels at bay! Oxidative stress is an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants, and can be caused by several things such as diet, lifestyle, and environmental factors such as air pollution and sun damage!
Having high levels of Oxidative stress can negatively impact the rate your hair grows and can even lead to hair loss! So by conducting scalp massages, relaxing those nerves, and stimulating all the nutrients in the blood, it can help lower those stress levels!
Hair care and Scalp care are heavily intertwined, so it's really good to know how to not only take care of your beautiful hair strands but the scalp as well!
