The key to growing longer, fuller, healthier hair is stimulating and nourishing your scalp.
Hair has two main parts – the follicle, which is within the skin below the scalp, and the shaft, which is visible above the scalp.
The hair shaft is made of a protein called keratin. This protein is dead, so the hair that you see is not a living structure.
The hair follicle extends into the dermis of the skin. At the base of the follicle is the papilla, which contains tiny blood vessels that nourish the hair cells. The living part of the hair is the very bottom part surrounding the papilla, the hair bulb.
Nourishing and stimulating your scalp increases blood flow and circulation in your scalp. This nourishes the hair follicles responsible for hair growth.
Here are four ways you can stimulate your scalp to obtain that much desired length!!!
Treat any scalp issues / problems:
Dandruff and dry scalp are examples of conditions that could affect the scalp and affect hair growth. These issues can affect the scalp and sometimes cause scarring, or inflammation to the scalp, inhibiting hair growth. Use anti-dandruff products such as Enam’s Tea Tree Balm as part of your hair care regimen. It contains a rich blend of oils and plant extracts, including Coconut and Tea tree Oils, which have anti-fungal, antiviral and anti-bacterial properties that help fight scalp infections and bacteria build-up on the scalp & hair. They also have powerful healing properties that help treat the root cause of dry, flaky scalp and dandruff.
Yes, simply shampooing your hair regularly with a good sulfate-free shampoo. Regular shampooing lifts dirt from the scalp, and the massaging and washing action of the fingers stimulate the scalp.
Once the scalp is free of impurities, your follicles can reap the benefits of the nutrients in your hair conditioning and styling products.
Conditioning / Deep Conditioning:
Massage conditioner into scalp and hair. Leave for a few minutes before rinsing off. Massaging the scalp strengthens the root of the hair and stimulates the hair follicles, this increases blood flow to the scalp. Increased blood flow allows for your scalp to receive nutrients from the conditioner which encourages hair growth.
Massage your scalp with an oil blend that contains effective amounts of hair growth promoting essential oils in a carrier oil base.
Do not saturate your scalp with oil only apply lightly to the scalp, and massage.
The oils will nourish your scalp and increase blood flow and circulation in your scalp, to promote hair growth.
Essential oils such as Rosemary, Peppermint, Neem, Aloe and Amla in a carrier oil such as Grape seed oil or Jojoba oil penetrates the hair follicles, to nourish the scalp and hair. This stimulates blood flow in the scalp and encourages hair growth.
