It’s that time of year again, and Fresh Scalps for Australia is back. You may have heard already that this is a big year for Scalp Care. But what exactly is it? Simply put, the Scalp is the largest part of your face, after the Hair. That large area includes the bones, cartilages and subcutaneous fat. To keep our scalps looking their best we must take good care of them.
Most of us spend hours styling our hair and performing mani andpedis, or getting ready for a special event. All these activities wash, dye and comb our hair daily. In the process, our hair loses its natural pigment and begins to gray. This happens because of a lack of oxygen as well as other elements trapped in the follicle, such as dirt and oil. We all know how dirty hair can get, and we do everything we can to keep it clean and healthy.
What about our scalp? It’s where we’ll be keeping our hair and doing most of the “dirty work” on our hair day to day. How does our scalp do this job? Well, hair grows very slowly, about one inch a month to be exact. Our follicles use the nutrients in our blood to grow, creating new hair.
Since the follicles are small, they do not like a lot of strain. Therefore they will tend to curl or twirl rather than grow. They also tend to spread out rather than down, so that you see mostly fine lines on your scalp rather than deep cuts. If you’re like most people with this problem, you have what we call a “craniofacial region”, which just means that your facial muscles are in a state of constant tension.
This “tension” is what causes most of your hair problems, as well as a large part of your entire scalp issue. The more tension that you put on your scalp, the more likely that you’re going to experience premature graying. This means that you’re losing hair at a faster rate than you should be. As well, since your follicles are not growing, your scalp is also losing hair at a rapid rate. This “cranial recession” is what leads to premature graying in both men and women.
So how can you prevent this from happening? Well, you need to get enough blood flowing through your scalp. How can you do that? Well, there’s a really easy way to do it. Just attach some electrodes to each of your fingertips, and then just rub them against your scalp. Do this for 20 minutes per day, every day, and you’ll be able to stimulate your scalp into growing new, strong hair strands.
Did you know that the single best thing that you could possibly do for your hair would be to increase blood flow? Well, you just might be surprised to know that this one little change will be incredibly beneficial for your hair as well. Scalp massage will definitely help you grow out your graying hair. Just make sure that you know how to do this properly though.
There are many different natural methods that you can use for growing new hair. You just need to be willing to do a bit of work on yourself. It’s a good idea to consult with your family physician as well as a good home remedy practitioner. In any case, a scalp massage should work out pretty well for you.
How exactly is that done? Well, you just take a good wash cloth and put it on your scalp while you are sitting in a chair. Then apply light pressure onto your scalp as you massage it in. After doing this for a few minutes, you should notice that it will start to feel a lot better. There are even some people that say that their hair will actually fall out if they are not careful enough about the way they massage their scalps. You can also choose to purchase a headband, which works quite well in the same way.
So there you have it. Now you know two good ways of stimulating hair growth, regardless of whether you are growing your hair long or short. This is especially important for anyone who wants to get a head full of hair in a hurry. As a matter of fact, I would recommend that you get a good head start on getting your hair growing right away so that you don’t have to worry about doing this trick.
Now you are probably wondering, what about doing this trick when you have a bad hair day? That is a great question. In fact, there have been some studies that suggest that you can use this trick as a way of getting rid of dandruff, which is another common scalp issue. It is said that doing scalp massage is a very good way of relieving some of the symptoms related to scalp conditions. If you read through the studies, it appears that this is a legitimate claim, though there is no proof to back up this claim just yet.
