If you’re looking to promote hair growth and an overall healthier scalp, a scalp massager is a great tool to incorporate into your hair care routine. You’ve probably seen them around – they fit into your palm and have flexible “claws” coming out of the bottom. They are handy and affordable, helping to exfoliate the scalp and stimulate hair follicles. This can promote hair growth and overall better hair vibes (sounds amazing, right?!).
But is using one actually better for your scalp than a massage with your fingers? Short answer: it can be! Healthy hair starts with your scalp, so if your scalp is littered with dead skin cells and product buildup, it makes it much harder for your hair to grow properly. The massaging motion alone helps to promote blood circulation in the hair follicle and can help to deliver more nutrients.
So you really don’t have anything to lose by incorporating one into your routine. Plus, they feel almost as good as a scalp massage you receive at the hairdressers – almost!
As well as working to stimulate blood flow, they are a really great way to evenly dispense shampoo and conditioner through the top of your locks. They can help to ensure the product is penetrating right to the roots of your hair. Plus, using them to help shampoo your roots can help to give your hair a proper cleanse and remove any old product that may have built up.
If you’ve been considering adding a scalp massager into your hair care routine, they really are an easy but effective add-on to your existing routine, especially on wash day or whenever you’re feeling like having a little moment of self-care.
