Scalp Massage for Healthy, Natural Hair Growth

by Nicole Harmon of Hair Liberty

You can massage your scalp to slowly stimulate hair growth. It’s a great technique for areas that have thinned due to weaves and braids. The key to seeing results is consistency. Massaging your scalp a couple of times a week may not make a difference. Commit to a daily massage for at least a month for your best chance at success.

Step 1: Only use pure, natural oils for your massage.

Try coconut, olive, castor, avocado, almond, or jojoba oil.

Step 2: Use about 1 tablespoon of oil to lubricate the area of your scalp that you plan to massage. For an extra boost, add 2 drops each of rosemary, lavender, cedarwood, and thyme essential oil. That combination of oils has been proven to stimulate hair growth in a few small medical studies.

Step 3: Apply the oil, keeping your fingers planted and moving them in a circular motion. Just like when you get a light back rub or shoulder massage. Don’t scratch. Scratching your scalp creates tiny cuts that can slow or inhibit hair growth.

Step 4: To treat areas with thin hair growth, massage for 2-5 minutes before every shampoo. For regular hair maintenance, a 1-minute massage is adequate. Use the time that you’re massaging to relax. It may be your only chance all day!

    Hair Liberty thank you again! I have actually tried this & I love it! I do this at 1-2 times a week right before I shampoo. I want to try adding a few essential oils that's my next step!

    Great post! I was always told to use essential oils to massage into the scalp. Like peppermint oil straight on to the scalp will "wake" the scalp up. Good to know I can just use the pure natural oils I already own.
