How a five-minute scalp massage can improve your hair and your mood. 

Apr 21, 2023

Scalp massage is one of the best things about visiting the hair salon, are we correct? Yes we are!

We know how you sink into our basin chairs and relax when we start the conditioning massage, and so do you.

You can (and should) do this for yourself at home when you condition your hair.

It feels amazing and it also has some great hair and body/mind health benefits too!

Scalp Massage Benefits

Regular scalp massages can promote healthy hair growth, reduce stress, reduce muscle tension, and improve your mood.

Massaging the scalp stimulates blood circulation, which brings oxygen and hair-healthy nutrients to the hair follicles, promoting stronger hair growth and increasing hair density.

Regular scalp massage can also help to remove dead skin cells and product build-up, improving oil control and reducing dandruff. So, if you’re struggling with thinning hair or an unhealthy scalp, you really want to think about doing this on the regular.

How to give yourself a scalp massage

It’s really easy.

Simply apply your conditioner as usual, then take the time to massage your head, behind the ears, and back of the neck as you work the conditioner through.

We tend to hold a lot of stress in these places, including the jaw and behind the ears. This tension can radiate to the head, resulting in persistent headaches or migraines. By easing this tension, scalp massage can relax the nervous system and alleviate pain or discomfort.

Be sure you apply slight pressure to the head and temples using circular motions to really soothe any tension.

What conditioner to use?

The conditioner you use really depends on your hair type, so next time you’re in the salon, ask Marc, Sabrina, Marie or Taylem and we can advise you as to what will work best for you. Or, give us a call and we will be happy to chat to you!

You can also check out our extensive range of conditioners at our online shopping destination.

Love, Marc, Sabrina and the whole Marc & Maxwell team!
