What is scalp hair brushing?

Since the scalp is where the hair follicles are, keeping it healthy is the only way to ensure hair growth. In this therapy, you use a paddle brush instead of your fingers to massage your scalp. This magic process leads to stimulation in the scalp thereby leading to the birth of healthy locks.

How it’s done

Bend over and use the brush to start brushing from the skin line all the way to the nape of your neck. Make sure your hands are firm and the movement is slow. As you progress, move your head a little towards the right and then left. Now stand straight and start brushing your scalp right from the hairline to the back of your neck. If you want best results, you must repeat this at least three times.

Why you must do it?

You must be wondering why we’re swearing by this therapy, right? Well, scalp brushing removes all the grime and chemicals that settle on the scalp due to environmental pollutants and usage of the wrong hair products. You suffer from recurring dandruff and itchy scalp problems because your scalp isn’t cleansed enough. This process of brushing will take care of this problem. You must remember that while a head massage stimulates the blood flow in your scalp, scalp brushing is twice as effective, what with the brush bristles directly massaging your scalp—something that will ensure that all the nutrients in your scalp are well-distributed throughout so there’s enough hair growth. Moreover, scalp brushing evenly distributes the sebum through your scalp. This will ensure that all the moisture that has been stripped off your scalp is back only to give you gorgeous, healthy locks.
