Head oil massage: an effective remedy against hair loss

17.12.2020

Thick shiny hair is the hallmark of a well-groomed woman. But what do if the hair has lost its usual shine and thickness?

The problem of baldness has only been getting worse lately. Stress factors, unbalanced diet, lack of sleep and rest negatively affect the condition of hair follicles. The lack of vitamins and useful microelements destroys the structure, makes the hair weak, provokes a section.

We should also mention the styling products. Hair dryers, curling irons and styling irons dehydrate hair. The use of thermal protective equipment does not always help.

How to be? How to prevent hair loss?

Oil massage of the head according to the principles of Ayurveda is a procedure in which natural oils are used to actively nourish the scalp, which, in turn, strengthens the hair, makes it more durable and shiny.

Ayurvedic technique is distinguished by its effectiveness:

  1. moisturizes and soothes the skin;
  2. prevents the appearance of dandruff, in the case of an active phase - heals;
  3. improves blood circulation in tissues;
  4. saturates the hair roots with useful substances;
  5. relieves nervous tension, spasms in the head and neck;
  6. stimulates hair growth;
  7. acts as a protection against the negative effects of natural factors (sun, rain, wind, temperature extremes) ;
  8. improves the quality of sleep;
  9. neutralizes fatigue, evenly distributes vital energy between the chakras;
  10. improves vision, memory, concentration.

It is advisable to combine oil massage of the head with a hygienic facial massage. Performing such a combination will bring a double benefit: it will work the muscles of the face and activate the nutrition of the scalp cells.

In addition, both types of procedures have a positive effect on the state of the nervous system - they relieve psycho-emotional stress.

  8. hold your palms from the back of the head to the back of the neck;
  9. at the end of the procedure, comb the hair with your fingers in the direction from the frontal zone to the back of the head.
