Because the scalp is so thin massaging it definitely helps to promote blood flow to it. Massaging the scalp is even more effective if you use a good oil to do it. Oils that have essentials oils like Neno Natural's Hair Growth Stimulator are the best because the essential oils that make up the oil actively promote hair growth.
How should you massage the scalp and for how long?
Rub the scalp using the flats of your fingers (not your fingernails) for 2 to 5 minutes. That's plenty of time.
How often should you massage the scalp?
Everyday is ideal but that may be impractical for many so every other day should do it.
When should you massage your scalp?
Massage your scalp at convenient time for you, for instance:
- On wash days as you shampoo and condition your hair
- In the evening when you're watching TV or before you go to bed as you twist it
- In the morning before you style it
