Massage Your Scalp Daily

I have a great tip for you to achieve healthier hair - Massage your scalp daily! Scalp skin, overall, is very thick with the thickest part at the nape of the neck. Unfortunately, scalp skin does not move much on its own so it benefits greatly from stimulation. Massaging your scalp with your fingertips stimulates the flow of blood and oxygen to the bulb of your hair, which feeds it, and helps it stay healthy and grow. Very often bad scalp circulation can lead to thinning hair.

Before you go to sleep every night, take about 1-2 minutes to massage your scalp. Start at the base of you skull and gently rub upward and outward in small, circular movements with your fingertips. Never let your nails touch your scalp. Over time, your hair will thank you by being healthier and more vibrant, and it feels wonderful too! It's also a good idea to gently massage your scalp before you shampoo to loosen any debris and help wash it away.

Speak to you soon,
