Regrowing hair is an ongoing process. Although most hair grows at a rate of six inches every year, there are a few ways to increase that growth rate. Improving circulation to the scalp is one of the best ways to get hair to grow longer and stronger. The increased circulation brings more blood to the hair follicles. Blood carries oxygen and nutrients needed for healthy hair.
Things You'll Need
- Natural bristle brush
- Scalp massager
Spread out the balls of your fingers over the entire scalp.
Bend over from the waist. The position helps bring more blood to the head.
Move your fingers in a circular motion on your scalp for 5 to 10 minutes. Do this scalp massage once or twice a day to increase the flow of blood to your scalp and to the hair follicles.
Brush your hair every day. Start at the crown and work your way down the head gently. Do this several times with a natural bristle brush to prevent scratching the scalp. The bristles stimulate the scalp, bringing more blood to the area and increasing production of sebum. Sebum moisturizes the hair and scalp and reduces dryness and breakage.
Use a scalp massager. Scalp massage come in a variety of sizes, shapes and prices so choose the type you prefer. Many are battery-operated though some use electrical current. Most scalp massage require you to place the device on your scalp and turn it on. The scalp massage them vibrates or moves slowly over the head to increase blood circulation.
