What is the effect of scalp massage?
The primary purpose of scalp massage is to loosen the stiffness of the scalp and promote blood circulation. In Chinese medicine, hair is called blood surplus, and it is thought that “hair is made of surplus blood”, so much blood is needed for hair growth.
Even if you are told that you need a lot of blood to grow your hair, you may not be able to tell how much you need. Hair grows about 1 cm a month. Converted to 0.33 mm per day. It’s not a big deal if you think about one hair, but since there are 100,000 hairs and they grow all at once, the total length is 0.33 mm x 100,000, which is 33 meters. Hair grows 33 meters in just one day. That much nutrition is needed.
Scalp massage is effective for modern human scalp where blood is hard to reach
The scalp is a place where blood tends to stagnate, even though hair growth requires a lot of nutrition. The scalp is above the heart that pumps blood and cannot even move. Especially recently, there are many people with poor blood circulation in the scalp due to the effects of PC, TV, stress, etc.
In addition, the human body is designed so that nutrients can be delivered from important parts such as the heart and brain, which are indispensable for living. You can live without hair, so it’s the last time you get nourishment.
Even though a lot of nutrition is needed, the place where nutrition is hard to reach is the scalp, so scalp massage is a care that everyone should take in order to grow beautiful hair, not just those who have hair problems.

There are many effects that can be obtained by promoting blood circulation and delivering nutrition to the hair with a scalp massage, but the most effective one is to improve the firmness, elasticity and luster of the hair.

What is the lift-up effect of scalp massage?
Scalp massage is very effective not only for hair but also for lifting up the face. The same skin that connects the scalp and face with one piece. If your scalp sags, your face will naturally go down.
By the way, it is said that when the scalp sags 1 mm, the face sags 1 cm. But conversely, if you raise your scalp by 1 mm, your face will rise by 1 cm.
It is very difficult to raise your face by 1 cm with massage or cream, but it is surprisingly easy to raise your scalp by 1 mm. Please aim for both beautiful hair and beautiful skin with a scalp massage.
