Default Re: How often do you scalp massage?

I do mine once a day or every other day. My scalp starts to tingle after a while, so I assume it does help with growth.

I don't know if it does but my scalp sure seems to love it. My scalp feels alive when I do it. Even if it doesn't help me get a centimeter of growth, they are pretty enjoyable.

I just started masaging my scalp, I never done it before. From what I've heard, it increases blood flow and circulation to the hair follicles.

Default Re: How often do you scalp massage?

Twice a week (during wash days). Other times I just do the scalp exercise. I don't know if it helps with growth but I do believe that keeping one's scalp supple and flexible can help prevent hair loss and balding, not to mention that massage promotes blood circulation ensuring your hair is getting the nourishment it needs to be healthy.

Default Re: How often do you scalp massage?

I bought a scalp massage brush from TJ Maxx and it works great and I massage my scalp every night until I get too much newgrowth.
I have seen a difference in my hair growth vs when I never massaged my scalp.

I love scalp massages. I never miss a day. I believe it helps with a hair growth alot. I usually dedicate at least 15 - 30 minutes to it daily. It feels really good, too.

Default Re: How often do you scalp massage?

I need to get on scalp massages, I usually do them 2x a week for about 15 minutes at a time. I love to massage my scalp while pre-pooing but admit I haven't been consistent with adding it to my reggie. I think I will start every other day and go from there.

For the past week I have been doing it twice a day for 5 mins each. I absolutely love when people massage my scalp for me but it just doesn't feel the same when I do it myself.

Default Re: How often do you scalp massage?

I've started doing it daily to try to combat my increased shedding. I oil my scalp nightly with herb infused coconut/castor oil so I figured this would work along with it. So far it's helped a little bit, i'm shedding about 10-15 hairs a day down from about 20 (or more) a day from last week. I don't think it will affect my growth much...that's ok i just want what i have to stay where it is.
