Indian Head Massage, Essential Oils and Hair Loss

indian head massage, essential oils and hair loss
Hair loss is perfectly natural. Apparently, we shed as many as 100 hairs every day. Hairs grow in a repeated cycle which consists of three stages – a growth phase (Anagen), a transitional phase (Catagen), and a resting phase (Telogen). Each hair goes through these three phases but not necessarily at the same time as its neighbouring hairs. Approximately 85% of all our hair is in the growth phase at any one time. We lose hair as each one comes to the end of its natural life - between two and seven years (at the end of the growth phase). It then enters the transitional phase where the hair follicle shrinks to about 1/6 of its normal length – this phase lasts a couple weeks and then enters the resting phase which lasts for about 6 weeks in which the hair detaches from the follicle. After this final phase, the hair cycle starts again with a new hair growing. If the old hair hasn’t already shed, the new hair pushes the old one out.

From the mid–twenties onwards, the hair and scalp receives fewer nutrients from the blood, making the hair become weaker, thinner, and more prone to damage. Excessive hair loss can often indicate a problem and should be checked out with your GP. Hormonal changes, especially after the menopause and pregnancy, vitamin deficiency, stress, and illness, can contribute to hair loss as can many other genetic and environmental factors.

Indian Head Massage boosts the flow of blood through the cells in the scalp and head helping to improve hair condition making it stronger, healthier and shinier. It also improves the skin condition on the scalp. A more efficient flow of blood in this area brings more oxygen and other nutrients to the cells and expels any toxins which have built up in them such as carbon dioxide and other waste, helping the cells to function properly and stimulating their growth and renewal. The sebaceous glands are stimulated by the massage helping to normalise their function making the skin and hair soft and supple.

Essential oils can be very beneficial for hair loss as they also have an effect on the sebaceous glands and can be easily incorporated in to an Indian Head Massage. The oils penetrate deeply into the hair shaft and follicle and helps encourage new hair growth. You can mix the essential oils with a carrier oil such as mustard or sesame oil. Massage the oil in to the scalp in a circular motion – do not use too much force if your hair is thinning. Leave the oil on over night if possible and wash hair after as normal. The oil is best applied when warm. Essential oils which are beneficial for hair loss include basil, clary sage, cypress, palmarosa, rosemary, geranium, lavender, Roman chamomile, thyme and cedarwood.

Arnica cream can also be rubbed into areas of thinning hair but should not be used if the skin is broken.

  2. I'd love to havd a proper Indian Head Massage in India and I'd love to see how it's done there. I think they use a lot more oil in India than therapists do in the West. People in the West seem to worry about their hair getting oily and looking a mess when they leave after a massage but the oil is so good for the hair. Indian women's hair always looks amazing - so shiny, strong, and healthy looking.
