Blood Flow is important to your scalp because it brings more blood to the area. Having more blood to the area brings nutrients and oxygen, thus promoting luxuriant, nutrient rich hair growth, giving you glorious hair.
How to do this?
~A vigorous massage while washing your hair helps.
~When getting your massage ask to have a bit of a scalp massage too.
~Use a boar bristle brush - these are amazing and one of the first things I would suggest you change.
~Tap your head and scalp with your fingers.
~Gently pull your hair from the scalp. Try all directions with this. I LOVE having my head massaged and my hair pulled. Take one - two days per week and make a custom of pulling, brushing (with a boar bristle brush, of course,) and massaging your scalp. (Being a massage therapist too, I find that people with long hair enjoy having it gently pulled.)
I am a huge lover of camellia oil so here are some details about my all time favorite product.
Camellia oil is one of the most rapidly absorbed oils into ones skin and hair. It contains vitamins rich in anti-oxidants such as A,B, E and various minerals including Phosphorus, Calcium, Iron, Manganese and Magnesium. The hair cuticle will have a smoother appearance and is perfect for damage from hair chemicals. Camellia Oil deeply nourishes your hair with its high content of olein acids and glycerides.
Usage for camellia oil, 2-4 drops on fingertips then run through your hair , starting at the ends. This can be adjusted for amount of hair, how dry it is, split ends etc.
Extra bonus with Camellia Oil - it is perfect for your skin. With its light delicate floral aroma camellia oil will lighten stretch marks and age spots, and it helps prevent freckles and wrinkling.
Change the type of shampoo and conditioner that you are using. The laurel sulfates are what dry your hair out, yep they make all of the bubbles but that is not nourishing for your hair. I know, my hair is bleached out most of the time and I have one shampoo that helps to keep is nicely blonde, beyond this wonderful 'cool blonde' shampoo this is what I use - shampoo and conditioner. And, did I mention I LOVE camellia oil
The shampoo will feel a bit different at first because it won't lather greatly. It lathers, it's just different. I suggest rubbing it together in your hands first. Also doing batches/segments of your hair at a time.
OK - here's the drill - share, like and have a brilliant day!
PS - isn't my son's hair wonderful??!!
