How does it help?

Massaging has many benefits in general. It also has a reasonably long list of benefits to the health of the follicles. It is a process that allows greater amount of blood flow to the scalp. More nutrients this way can be absorbed by them. It also helps a person in relaxing and lets go of the stress which is another factor that can contribute to hair loss. When the stress hormones are produced in smaller quantities, the hair growth is improved. Roots of the hair also gain strength with the help of massaging.

How it should be done

Doing a bit of massaging yourself is not a bad idea but it is an even better option to seek help of a professional in this regard. They know all the tricks of the trade and by rubbing, kneading and applying the right amount of pressure to the scalp, they are able to get the maximum benefits from it. Scalp massaging should be done frequently to ensure that the good results continue in the longer run.

Is massaging with essential oils a good idea?

Massaging with oils such as coconut, almond, olive, thyme, cedar wood and jojoba oil is an excellent idea. Researches have proven that massage gains ever more efficacy for the betterment of scalp once coupled with a combination of the above mentioned oils. It has been found that alopecia areata patients are more likely to see hair growth when massage is done with multiple essential oils in comparison with massage without any oils or with a single oil. It is therefore important that when a person gets a massage done, it is done with a combination of oils that are good for follicular health.
