Health and Beauty Benefits of a Scalp Massage

One of the best things about getting your hair done at a salon is the scalp massage. It is a simple technique where you knead soft tissues in the body that helps create a calming effect and remove tension.  Because the scalp is filled with nerve endings, a good scalp massage will stimulate your nervous system.
A scalp massage is also a fantastic way to reduce stress.  It boosts your mood and sense of well-being by working on serotonin and dopamine–hormones that enhance those “feel good” emotions.  It also helps by reducing cortisol–a stress-related hormone that leaves us feeling down and contributes to belly-fat weight gain. So, yes, a scalp massage can help to manage your weight too.

Additional Benefits to a scalp massage:

  • Stimulates blood flow to and from the skin, increasing the oxygen supply to your scalp.
  • Cleanses the hair and scalp of oils, dirt, and bacteria.
  • Lubricates the scalp, creating healthy hair and promote growth.
  • When rubbing the hair from roots to tip, it can also stimulate the hair’s growth and vitality.
  • It soothes a dry, itchy scalp by conditioning it, preventing a dry scalp.
  • It leaves your hair softer and more radiant by spreading natural oils, making it easier to style.
  • It prevents hair follicle damage from the sun, or chemical treatments by improving resiliency over time.
  • It just feels good and relaxing!
