Can scalp massage really help grow hair?

Scalp massage for hair growth 

Taking the time to massage your scalp and neck on a regular basis can have huge benefits for you. We can release tension which creates lines across the face. Releasing this tension and increasing blood flow can have a considerable anti ageing effect as well as helping us maintain fuller, healthier hair.

Some more benefits of scalp massage include: stress relief, tension release, better sleep, mental alertness, but the one benefit we are looking at here specifically is the stimulation of hair growth.

It has been debated widely, but the fact of the matter is; massage helps to reduce tension and increase blood flow. If we can do that to the scalp area and follicles, then nutrients beneficial for hair growth can be present where needed.

Blood flow Tension and Hair Loss

All you need is Lustalox Hair Growth Oil, 10 minutes in the day and your fingers.

We recommend taking the Lustalox Hair Boost Supplements by My Hair Secret for 1 week before your first scalp massage to ensure your blood is full of nutrients ideal for healthy hair growth and consuming the optimum daily amount of water (~1.8L per day/4 pints), to help flush out toxins.

We recommend conducting this massage daily for 7 days in a row, then once or twice per week after the first week.

Step 1. Prepare
Comb through your hair to ensure there are no tangles.

Step 2. Relax
Find a place where you can sit comfortably where your arms and elbows will not be restricted.

Step 3. Massage
Prime the scalp blood flow by massaging the back and sides of the neck from the nape down to the shoulder area. On the sides of the neck from shoulder up past either side of the ears. This will help to circulate the nutrient fueled blood around the sclap area. (See Image 2)

Apply oil to the scalp and evenly on the pads of fingers and warm slightly. Keep finger pads moist with oil throughout massage.

Note: Do not rub scalp and avoid using fingernails. Use the pads of your fingers to massage and move the scalp tissue. Keep shoulders relaxed throughout.

3.1. Place fingers evenly across the front hair line with thumbs at temple level. Slowly run fingers with slight pressure on the scalp from the front, over the top and sides, ending at the back, nape of neck. Repeat 3 times.

3.2. Place fingers evenly across hair line at the back of head (near nape) and slowly, with gentle pressure on scalp move fingers over the head to the front hair line. Repeat 3 times. 

3.3. Place fingers with thumbs in a line at the rear nape pointing up towards crown. Index fingers next to each other at the nape with a gentle kneading action including your thumbs, massage the area in small, circular motions. Slowly, in your own time, without rubbing, work your way up, towards the crown of your head and then slide fingers back down to nape.  Repeat 3 times.

Notice how the scalp tissues move as you knead and concentrate on any tense areas that don't move well throughout the massage. The tight areas hold tension and toxins that contribute to poor flow and hair loss. (See image 1)

3.4. Place fingers at the bottom of the hair line at each side of the head just above ears, fingers pointing up, index fingers will be towards the rear of head. Again, with a gently kneading action, massage the area in small, circular motions. Slowly, in your own time, without rubbing, work your way up, towards the top of your head until your fingers meet, concentrate on the centre part for a few seconds and then slide fingers back down to the start point. Repeat 3 times.

3.5. Place fingers and thumb across the top of your head facing behind you, just behind the crown. Spread the fingers evenly so your thumbs are just above your ears. With a gentle kneading action, massage the area in small, circular motions. Slowly, in your own time, without rubbing, work your way towards the front hairline, concentrate a few seconds on the hairline area,  and then slide fingers back to the starting point. Repeat 3 times.

Step 4. Gently lower your arms, sit back and relax for a moment.
For increased flow - Invert for 3 - 5 mins
