A study shows that massaging your scalp for four minutes a day increases activity among genes that promote hair growth, as well as decreases the activity of genes that cause hair loss and inflammation…

Scalp massages increase blood flow to the hair follicles, which helps deliver nutrients to the skin.

In addition, scalp massages can help reduce stress and lower blood pressure and heart rate!

You can give yourself a scalp massage while shampooing your hair or pre-shampoo while your hair is dry.
