Scalp Massage: An Excellent Hair Loss Therapy

  1. 1. Scalp Massage: AnExcellent Hair LossTherapy
  2. 2.  For decades, many of us wonder what might be the real cause of hair loss and how we can prevent it from happening. Although the common cause of 95% of hair loss among men and women is dihydrotestosterone, there are many other triggering factors of hair loss problems like heredity, medications, infections, improper diet, poor lifestyle, etc.
  3. 3.  Recent studies have shown that hair loss is associated with stress—an emotional condition often triggered by a dramatic event that puts a person’s nervous system under severe strain. Stress has become an integral part of our life. From school to workplace, family to friends, the daily dose of stress every individual encounters is horrifying. Even in simple day-to-day living, there is so much stress involved that it is almost unconceivable that it could be eliminated from our lives.
  4. 4.  Fortunately, there are many great ways on how to get rid of stress. One of the best ways to de-stress is scalp massage. Through this hair loss therapy, stress-induced hair loss can be prevented and hair growth can be promoted. A good scalp massage as a hair loss therapy can increase the flow of the blood specifically on the upper body area. With quality blood flow and blood circulation, the hair follicles are properly fed with the right nutrients. A good scalp massage promotes an overall feeling of relaxation which is best for the body. These calming massages are also known for reducing headaches and migraines. Scalp massages normally incorporate two massage techniques: kneading and rubbing. These techniques increase the warmth on a specific area and put pressure on it. The techniques generally utilise the hands and fingers to increase blood flow and circulation. The condition of the scalp can also be improved through scalp massage. Since it provides pressure and warmth on the skin, it gives the sense of relaxation as it decreases stress and it increases production of natural feel- good chemicals in the body.
  5. 5.  Scalp massage as hair loss therapy is also believed to be capable of boosting the strength of the hair roots. It also lowers the stress hormone production. The kneading action on the scalp helps stimulate the production of endorphins. This ‘feel good’ chemical helps lower stress levels and lead to a feeling of peace and relaxation. In fact any massage will help to bring down high stress levels as long as it is carried out properly. In addition, using essential oil during the massage will help as it moisturises dry skin which prevents it from flaking and shedding itself as dandruff. Essential oils nourish the roots and shaft of the hair which minimises the risk of brittle hair or ‘split ends’. Oils also condition the hair shaft and root, lessening the chances of brittleness, hair strand breakage, and split ends. Since stress is one of the major root causes of hair loss, boosting the relaxation and natural hair regrowth process through scalp massage is essential to fight premature hair loss.
