Hair loss and thinning are two all too common problems that can be caused by a vast range of different things, ranging from stress, genetics, dietary changes, and even hormones. While it’s always a good idea to check in with your physician if you’ve experienced sudden and extreme hair loss to rule out something potentially more serious, there are a number of over-the-counter remedies, DIY tricks and magic potions to help stimulate hair re-growth and prevent premature thinning that just comes along with the natural aging process. One of the most effective ways to deal with this widespread hair care woe is stimulate circulation using a scalp massager to promote hair growth.
Using a scalp massager in your hair care routine can help accelerate hair regrowth because it not only boosts blood flow, but it also and helps to cleanse clogged hair follicles that block strands from sprouting through. Basically, hair follicles are kind of like the pores on our face, and when they become clogged with excess sebum, dead skin and grease and grime they become blocked. Naturally, when this gland is trapped with excess oil and other impurities, the normal hair growth process becomes stunted.
In addition to congested follicles wreaking havoc on the pursuit of healthy hair, lack of proper blood flow to the scalp can also disturb the natural growth process, preventing cell production from operating at full capacity and leaving you with a head of limp locks. You can certainly perform regular scalp massages by hand to reap the benefits of scalp stimulation, but we’ve rounded up a few affordable handheld massagers that (almost) do the work for you while you shampoo your mane, brush your hair, or watch TV.
