Scalp Massages

A major component in my hair regimen is scalp massaging. It is, in my opinion, the best growth aid. It's also very free to do. Of course there are other things that do contribute to hair growth, but my experience with scalp massaging has really increased my growth potential per month. I usually get 1/2 an inch per month, but when I do my daily scalp massages consistently, I can maintain anywhere from 1/2 - 3/4 inch of new growth. I usually massage my hair daily with Amla or Vatika Coconut Oil. It leaves my hair and my scalp feeling so good.

Benefits of scalp massages:
1. It lubricates and conditions the scalp, helping to prevent flakes and dry scalp without the use of harsh chemical shampoos.

2. It helps enhance blood circulation in the head and neck area. When the scalp is "tight" from stress, circulation and hair growth are impeded.

3. It helps relax the scalp and increase pliability.

4. It helps strengthen the roots of the hair and nourishes the hair-shafts, promoting new hair growth and strengthening current hair.

5. It helps soften and conditions the hair, making it more manageable.

6. It spreads the natural oils of the hair, increasing hair luster and vibrancy.

7. It helps protect hair from the damaging effects of the sun and harsh weather by improving resiliency over time.

8. It is replenishing and rejuvenating for dry, damaged hair, and helps prevent excessive brittleness and split-ends.

9. It helps pacify Vata dosha. Especially when enriched with Vata-pacifying herbs, a warm oil hair and scalp massage can be wonderfully relaxing for the mind and nervous system.

10. When fortified with cooling, Pitta-pacifying herbs, the hair and scalp massage can help balance Pitta dosha and help prevent Pitta-related problems such as premature graying or thinning of hair.

11. The massage helps relax the muscles in the neck area.

12. The hair and scalp massage can help promote sound sleep at night.
