Scalp Massage – How to Do a Proper Scalp Massage

Scalp massage is literally the most effective, cheapest (it’s free!), and simple thing you can do to grow hair.

Scalp massage immediately increases blood flow and circulation to the scalp and the hair follicles, relieves stress and tension which can hinder your body’s ability to concentrate energy on hair growth, and removes excess sebum or dead skin that may be clogging your follicles. All of these benefits lead to the result you are looking for: they help to grow hair.

This means increased growth rate (faster hair growth? yes, please!), and healthier, stronger, thicker, shiner hair.scalp massage

  • But how do you do a proper scalp massage?
  • How long does it take?
  • Where do you start?

I’ll share my technique, with step by step scalp massage instructions – usually available only in my book – for free, right now.

 

HOW TO DO A PROPER SCALP MASSAGE

 

  • Start at the base of your neck, keep your fingers together and with your fingers and thumb of each hand, use light pressure and knead the muscles at the back of your neck, for about 30 seconds until you feel an “opening up” and relaxation.

 

  • Move your fingers slowly toward the crown of your head, making little circles as you go. These circles should not “scrub” the scalp (or rub against your hair). If you have the right amount of pressure, the scalp will move under your fingers with the circular motion, over your skull. As you do this, allow your hand to spread so that the thumbs stay just behind your ears as the fingers advance toward the crown. Relax and enjoy this process, don’t hurry – it should take a few minutes and you should start to feel a tingling.

 

  • You can press a bit harder now, as you move your thumbs in circles toward your temples, keeping the fingers squarely on the crown. 

 

  • When your thumbs are on your temples, begin to move your fingertips over the top of your head, toward your hairline using the same circles. Take your time and massage all along your hairline, lifting your hair up, if need be, to get to your scalp. Remember, do not scrub your scalp, instead use the pads of your fingers and gentle pressure to move your scalp around in a circular motion.

 

  • Now put your head between your knees to increase the blood flow to your follicles, and use your fingertips to gently tug on your hair at the roots. This process is very gentle, just lifting your hair a bit – do not pull hard or be rough. When you have done this to the top, sides, and back, sit back up slowly and then rest for a minute.

 

  • Finally, plant the fingers firmly on the scalp with your thumbs at your temples, fingers splayed over the top of the head, and start a back-and-forth vibration of the scalp over the skull. Move your fingers over the back of your head, and finish off with a few seconds of kneading the back of your neck. Then quickly tap once all over your head with the very tips of your fingers so that the touch feels like gentle rain.

 

  • Smooth your index and middle fingers a couple of times over your forehead, from the center out, and then draw them over the eyebrows twice, to release any tension in the face.

Can you imagine looking into the mirror a few months from now and being amazed at how much healthier your hair looks? Getting compliments on your hair and fielding questions from friends on what your secret is because your hair is just growing like crazy?

Then you’ve come to the right place, because I will share my secrets with you. And scalp massage is just one of them! But it is one of the most important.

So am I really saying that all you have to do to grow the hair you want is to start massaging your scalp?

Well, yes and no.

If you were to make just this ONE change, to start regularly doing a scalp massage, then yes, I say this is the best change you could make and you WILL see results, without a doubt. Yes, I’m that confident.

But if you’re serious about growing your hair long, growing your hair fast, or regrowing hair that you’ve lost, then you need to read my book where I reveal everything I know in a step by step, easy to follow format that will leave you with a personalized plan for growing the absolute most beautiful hair you’ve ever had. It is available here, and you can download it immediately and get started right away!

Grow Long Hair Overnight

Grow Long Hair Overnight

So, you’re looking to grow long hair overnight. Right?

Well, waiting for your hair to grow can be very difficult to do. Human hair grows at an average rate of 1/4″ to 1/2″ per month. Some people’s hair may grow more slowly and others more quickly (lucky them!).

The honest truth – and the bad news – is that there really is no way to grow long hair overnight. You just can’t wake up as Rapunzel.

But the good news – yes, there IS good news! – is that you CAN treat your hair and scalp better in order to grow hair faster. While it won’t make you grow long hair overnight, it WILL make a noticeable difference in how quickly your hair grows.

The keys to knowing how to grow long hair fast are to treat your hair carefully, keep your body healthy, lower your stress, and keep your scalp healthy.

If you’re serious about wanting to grow long hair fast, then you need to read my E Book – you can read and download it immediately after purchase and it is 52 pages worth of tips, secrets and tricks to get your hair to grow faster.

 

Is it possible to grow long hair when you get older?

Are you wondering if it is possible to grow your hair long as you get older? Or if having long hair “after a certain age” is inappropriate?

The answers are: yes, of course you can grow your hair long as you get older…and no, of course it isn’t inappropriate!

The hair on your head is yours and the style you choose to wear it in is your choice, as well. Don’t let so-called style gurus and makeover shows convince you that after a certain age you must cut your hair short and fall victim to out-dated fashion advice.

Of course you can grow your hair long as you get older – although your hair’s natural growth rate may slow down a bit, with excellent and careful hair care and knowledge of some long hair secrets, you can definitely make your hair grow long at any age.

Your first step towards growing your hair long is to take a look at our fifteen long hair secrets and start applying them to your own hair care routine immediately.

Mega Tek For Hair Growth

A Secret to Fast Hair Growth: Mega Tek.

Mega Tek is a well known and trusted hair growth aid in the long hair community. People who are “in the know” about hair growth products, people who don’t fall for the hype or the powerful advertising, and people who take their hair care seriously – all turn to Mega Tek to help speed up their hair growth, to counteract and stop hair shedding, and to grow healthier, thicker, more beautiful hair.

Mega Tek for Hair Growth

What is Mega Tek?

Mega Tek is a product marketed for pets and horses. Yes, really. So why am I suggesting that you use it on your very own head?

Because Mega Tek is made by the same company that makes Ovation Cell Therapy. Basically, OCT and Mega Tek are the same product, and the company that produces them just has a very smart marketing team.

They realize that many people will balk at putting a product “made for horses” on their own hair, so they put that very same product in a different bottle with a fancy name and charge three times as much. And people buy it. You can, too.

But if you’re smart, you’ll head over to Amazon (or your local tack shop or specialty pet store) and pick up some Mega Tek for hair growth at a fraction of the price. And if you think you’re the only one buying this for your own hair, read some of these reviews:

I would highly recommend this product. my research seems to indicate that this product is the same as ovation cell therapy (just at half the price.) my hairdresser noticed improvement after i’d only been using it a couple weeks. i have a lot of new hair growth. be sure to condition after using this as the heavy amount of protein can dry the hair. i have thyroid disease & naturally fine hair – this product has helped with new growth & thickness/body.

Yes it is all true. It makes my hair thick, and strong. It also reduces beakage especially after braiding. I use this in conjuction with emu, castor, and eucalyptus oil.

This product is hair growth in a bottle. You will get a full inch and a 1/2 of hair the first month if you use it everyday. It was easy to use no residue. I loved this product I give it ten stars!!!

Grab your own bottle and find out for yourself!

What are the ingredients in Mega Tek for hair growth?

Deionized Water, Stearalkonium Chloride, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol, PEG-40 Castor Oil, Cetrimonium Chloride, Hydrolized Keratin, Panthenol, Tocopheryl Acetate, DM DM Hydantoin, Methlparaben, Propylparaben, Tetrasodium EDTA, Frangrance.

What are the ingredients in OCT?

What does Mega Tek do for hair growth?

Many people see noticeable growth within weeks – days, even. Obviously this won’t be the case for everyone, but most people do notice a boost in growth within a few week’s time and over time report a boost in growth to as much as 1 inch per month or more.

Many users report not only faster growth, but also thicker growth and most report having soft, silky hair when using Mega Tek as a conditioner as well.

Users also report noticeable fingernail growth when rubbing it into their cuticles or simply from applying the Mega Tek to their scalps and getting some on their fingernails.

This is one of the ultimate hair growth secrets…you do NOT want to pass this one by!

How do I use Mega Tek for hair growth?

Mega Tek is a protein treatment, which is important to keep in mind. Some people’s hair is very protein sensitive, so you have to watch for build up – if this happens, your hair will get coarse and dry, and the fix is just to reduce applications of Mega Tek for a while, keep Mega Tek applications to scalp only, and to do plenty of moisturizing deep treatments (like the amazing one I send out to my newsletter).

If your hair likes protein, you don’t have to worry about this and can use Mega Tek liberally.

As a growth aid, Mega Tek should be applied directly to the scalp. You can do this a few ways:

  • Apply straight from the bottle to your scalp during scalp massage as you would any scalp oil
  • Mix Mega Tek and some distilled water in a hair color applicator bottle and shake to mix up, apply this mixture to your scalp with the applicator tip and then massage in

I recommend applying Mega Tek to your scalp in the evening during your nightly scalp massage and leaving in. In the morning you can wash it out during your normal routine, but I have found that even if I do not wash or even rinse my hair the next day, my hair has often just soaked up the Mega Tek and I’m left with silky, soft, manageable hair.

You can use nightly if you want, or if you notice some build up, cut back to every other night or just a few times per week. You’ll still see results.

For fastest hair growth results: apply Mega Tek to scalp nightly.

You can also use Mega Tek as a deep protein conditioning treatment, by applying to your hair and scalp and leaving in for an hour or so, then washing or rinsing out. I do not recommend leaving Mega Tek on the length of your hair overnight, as it tends to harden your hair as it dries (as protein treatments tend to do) and you can damage your hair in this condition.

What does Mega Tek look and smell like?

Mega Tek is thick, white and creamy, like a deep conditioner. It has a coconut smell which some people find overpowering and fake (I’m not a fan of it, to be honest) and others find very tropical and subtle. Even though I’m not fond of the scent, there’s worse things than smelling like a vacation, and I’ve tried many a growth aid that smelled a hundred times worse (trust me on that!).

How long does a bottle last?

Depending on how often you use and how much you use, your results may vary, but my method is to mix Mega Tek with water in a hair color bottle and apply nightly, and my Mega Tek bottle lasts me about six months. At that rate, and with the results it gives, it ends up being affordable and very worth it.

The verdict?

If you are serious about growing your hair long, are looking to grow your hair fast, or are looking to grow thicker, healthier hair, then Mega Tek is definitely something you should try.
