In Our Heads About Our Hair

12 January 2012


A scalp massage is invigorating, relaxing and perfect for easing tension. It encourages the massage oils to penetrate the scalp to increase the blood supply’ enhance hair growth and shed dandruff. A tight scalp becomes more pliable after a good massage. Greater blood circulation to hair roots is encouraged.

If your hair has been straightened, relaxed, permed, colored or blow dried, you have weakened your hair fibers and they can easily break off. A hot oil treatment is a beneficial deep moisturizing treatment. It helps hair to become more flexible, less likely to break, stronger, shinier. Apply oils before you shampoo. To heat the oil, place the bottle into comfortably warm water for 5 to 10 minutes. Using a cotton ball, distribute the oil to the hair near the roots then comb through until all hair, ends and temples are lightly coated. Wrap your head in a warm damp towel or a conditioning cap for 15 to 20 minutes. Your hair and scalp will absorb what is needed. Rinse with cool water.

Important to achieve health for your hair and scalp is shampooing. Infrequent cleansing leaves dirt, grime and perspiration to dry and discolor hair. Bacteria left on the scalp can cause pimples and rash. Scalp pores become clogged with sebum that blocks and slows hair growth. Your hair should always smell clean and fresh to touch. Black hair will do best with a tangle-free cream shampoo with softeners to prevent hair breakage and maintain flexibility and strength. Shampoo with fresh, clean water. Don’t shampoo while you are in the bath. Bath water contains soap scum, body dirt etc. Begin to shampoo at your scalp with the pads of your fingertips. Massage scalp in a small circular motion. Carefully cleanse each area of your scalp then knead hair with the lather, rinse. Repeat if hair is greasy or scalp feels itchy. Warm water, rather than hot, is recommended because it is gentle to your hair, especially if you have a perm or color treatment.

RINSE well to be sure that no shampoo residue is left to leave hair dull or to attract dust to the hair. Towel dry without pulling or rubbing the hair.
