Wash day rituals are so in.
It’s your special time to devote 20, 30 (heck, we don’t care) 60 minutes to all things you! We have compiled 5 reasons why you should incorporate scalp massages on your wash days, but really - we think they have a place in your every day routine.
REMOVES DANDRUFF & PRODUCT BUILD-UP
Just as you use a cleanser for the skin on your face, shampoo is created for the skin on your head… your scalp! Clarifying your scalp from product build-up as well as sweat is needed to keep your scalp clean and debris free. Small circular motions in a light scrubbing manner is best. You can dry massage with no products as well if you want the benefits of increased blood circulation to the scalp.
BOOSTS HAIR GROWTH
Another amazing benefit of a scalp massage is that they stimulate your hair follicles and promote hair growth. Blood flow to the hair cells means healthier hair growing out of your scalp. Healthy hair really does begins at the roots. Scalp treatments are what your hair really needs in order to kick start your hair growth and maintain strong beautiful hair.
RELIEVES ACHES & PAINS
Just like any other massage, a scalp massage can reduce aches, pains, and tension from daily stressors. It’s common to have tension built up around our head, neck, and shoulders. A scalp massage helps to reduce this tension, particularly through slow circular movements around the nape of your neck. These are also great if you are looking for a natural remedy for headaches and migraines.
Ever been to the hairdresser and notice that when they begin to massage your scalp, you instantly want to close your eyes and fall asleep? This is because there are pressure points on the scalp that make you super relaxed. Scalp massages are also said to lower blood pressure and slow your heart rate. If you suffer from anxiety, take a few minutes out of your day and do a 2-minute scalp massage to calm yourself down.
I think we would all agree that we could all benefit from better sleep. Implementing scalp massages into your daily and weekly routine will improve the quality of your sleep. This is due to its relaxing properties mentioned above. If you struggle with getting a good night’s rest, try doing a 5-minute scalp massage before you go to bed. This will get your body and mind mentally prepared to fall asleep, and stay asleep.
