The Art of Scalp Massage for Richer, Healthier Hair

I often display many tips and tricks here about various hair products and the art of styling, but what I would like to show you today is a foundational technique.

It’s my number one tip for growing amazingly beautiful hair and it also helps in the use of products like hair oil.

It not only encourages blood flow to your scalp and hair follicles which stimulates the growth of hair, but it also helps with follicle health, and sebaceous oil production; thus aiding the growth of healthier hair.

Massage feels great too, it goes a long way in helping you relax and destress yourself – who doesn’t need that?


Massaging your head is something you can do by yourself so don’t come up with any excuse. If not, this is an activity that can be done together with your friends or child making it a good bonding moment for couples.

Either way, give your manes some head massages on daily basis if possible. At day’s end when I’m through with work, I enjoy massaging my scalp; this way I release stress as well.

Work the sections from oil to dry or vice versa into quarters starting at the crown. The scalp can be either single-handedly or by both hands massaged. After this massage should end at your nape.

When massaging, remember not to comb through any tangles you may have experienced while doing so by pulling them out with your fingers since you will cause breakage and knots and undo all those relaxation vibes from the massage too! Break down smaller areas work best.

Gently pull out fingers from the coil of your hair before reinserting them again using your fingertips initially. Obviously, styling might get ruined because of head massages hence why I prefer doing mine towards bedtime.


If you are using oils on your locks remember that just two drops cover the whole head completely. Many people overuse products such as oils. This will make your hair appear and feel greasy and flat.

I suggest you try darshana hair oil. Hair oil is “scalp oil” in other words, which means it is loaded with nutrients that are ideal for the scalp rather than the hair itself.

So take a couple of drops on the tips of your fingers and apply it to your scalp in small circles.

We may not have much time but you can even do this while watching some TV or when you’re readying yourself for bed. Even if you just have one minute to spare, take however long you can afford.

Start now and let me know if you feel or see any difference. I would love to hear from you at the end of a few weeks what your hair looks like.

For me, scalp massages are like a treasure in terms of hair care. My hair is healthier and I feel more relaxed as a result of this small tip that makes a big difference.

Scalp Massage Benefits

Stimulates Hair Growth: It increases the blood circulation in your scalp through gentle pressure, more oxygen, and nutrients to your scalp, thus promoting healthier hair growth.

Improves Scalp Health: Regular massaging can help maintain the balance of oils produced naturally on your scalp which helps moisturize it without making it greasy.

Relieves Stress: Massaging one’s head can be very calming and is an excellent way of unwinding at the end of a stressful day.

My Experience

Personally, I have found incorporating scalp massages into my daily routine not just to improve my hair’s texture and growth but also for relaxation.

This is how I tend to do it before finally going to bed after a long day.

For instance, with such things like Darshana oil that has been recommended here, you can make it not only beneficial but also luxurious when applied on a person’s head for better hair development.

How To Make Your Scalp Massage Effective

Choose Proper Techniques:

Start by dividing your head into sections so that you don’t miss any area; then use finger pads instead of nails gently pressing in small circles.

Select Appropriate Oil:

Consider using hair oils if they conform to your particular type.

Several good examples include jojoba oil, coconut oil, or Darshana oil suggested by experts since they act like natural oils found on human heads thereby providing moisture and nutrition without weighing down the strands themselves.

Prioritize Gentleness over Consistency:

Include regular scalp massage in your daily hair regimen but take caution against entangling or breaking your fine or wetened locks respectively.

Fit within Your Daily Routine:

Whether you watch TV, read books, or lie in bed. These activities may coincide with doing a head massage. So don’t think of it as an extra task; just put it into your existing schedule.

Evaluate the Outcome:

After a few weeks of doing a scalp massage, examine the health and look of your hair and scalp. Thus, you can change either the methodology or tools used based on these findings.

By making scalp massages a part of your everyday life, one can get better hair and find time for self-care in this fast-moving world.

There are more reasons to start this practice. A few minutes spent daily will bring long-lasting positive results.
