Stop hair loss
Best tips for growing and caring for your hair with scalp massage
Would you believe that massaging your scalp every day can stop you from losing your hair?
It just seems too simple.
But the fact is that massaging your scalp regularly is a natural proven method to get your hair grow and even combat baldness.
By using massage techniques like kneading, rubbing, tapping and putting pressure on the scalp you can increase the circulation of the blood at the surface skin.
The resulting effects are:
- Improved skin condition.
- Boosted strength of hair roots.
- Increased circulation and nutrients to the hair follicles.
- Increased relaxation – when we relax we produce happy, feel good hormones such as dopamine, oxytocin and serotonin.
- Decreased stress –relaxing also lowers our cortisol levels allowing the body to heal and grow new cells.
In this post we are going to teach you a series of massage routines that you can do every day using your fingers and palms.
An even better idea would be to get someone else to do it for you!
- Neck and shoulder stretch
To finish your massage, you need to relax your shoulders and your neck.
This is especially important after having your arms above your shoulders for this amount of time.
Sit up straight. Relax your shoulders and take a deep breath into your ribs.
To release your trapezius slowly turn your head to the left look over your shoulder. Allow your right shoulder to draw down towards the floor. Breathe in and breathe out. Hold the stretch for 10 seconds.
Come back to the center.
Now turn your head to the right and do the same movement.
Next take your left ear to your left shoulder, slowly breathe in and breathe out.
Come back to center.
Take your right ear to your right shoulder, slowly breathe in and breathe out.
Come back to center.
Please note: If you have any cervical disc injuries please do not do this next part of the stretch.
Take your chin to your chest, take a slow breath in and breathe out and come back to center.
Breathe in and breathe out.
And you’re done!
