Massaging the scalp comes with so many benefits. Scalp massages reduces product buildup and removes dead skin cells to help increase hair growth. A regular scalp massage increases hair thickness by stretching the cells of hair follicles. This stimulates the follicles and produces thicker hair. Massages to the scalp increases blood circulation and dilates blood vessels beneath the skin, therefore encouraging hair growth.

Massaging the scalp and hair with warm oil infused with natural herbs is a great way to nourish the scalp. A warm oil massage, done once a week, has the following benefits:


  • Conditions the scalp, helping to prevent flakes and dry, itchy scalp

  • Helps enhance blood circulation in the head and neck area. When the scalp is “tight” from stress, circulation and hair growth are delayed

  • Strengthens the roots of the hair and nourishes the hair-shafts, promoting new hair growth and strengthening existing hair

  • Massages help relax the scalp and the muscles in the neck area


Other benefits include mood boosts (through increases in serotonin, the “happy hormone.” Research shows that scalp massage can lower blood pressure, reduce levels of stress hormones, and slow the heart rate.It also relaxes your mind and nervous system, promotes sound sleep and can help with your memory as well. It helps alleviate tension headaches or migraines.
