Massaging your scalp: what are the benefits?

Praised for its relaxing effects, a scalp massage has many other virtues. Here are three which should convince you to include this practice in your regime.

The hair's nourishing foundation, the scalp, deserves our utmost attention . To pamper it, there is just one solution: regular massage. This regime is both simple and effective because:

It promotes hair growth

Massaging stimulates the scalp's vascularisation, whilst relaxing it. It improves blood flow to the hair follicles: the cavities the hair grows from. The hair thus receives all of the oxygen and nutrients required for its growth. The result: the hair's growth is boosted and revived .

It makes hair look more beautiful

When better oxygenated, the scalp eliminates waste and excess sebum more easily. This is a healthier environment for your hair. The proof is visible in locks that become glossier and more resilient.

It helps prevent hair loss

As it rids the scalp of waste and sebum which suffocate the hair at the roots, your hair is less likely to fall out. In addition, massaging your scalp contributes to preventing hair loss linked to stress, thanks to its relaxing power.

Before you start, you should know that massaging your scalp should be carried out in a specific way to be effective. So, what is the correct technique ? When the hair is damp or dry, make circular movements with your fingertips for 1 to 2 minutes. The aim is to relax the scalp, not to scratch it, which can lead to irritation.
