Look what just came in the mail! My brand new vibrating scalp massager. I got this off ebay about a week and a half ago for a whopping $2.78(including shipping). I was a little skeptical it wouldn't get to me because it came from Hong Kong, but it did and it works great!
It is said that scalp massages stimulate growth. Before I got this, I would just oil my scalp with coconut, jojoba and rosemary oil, wrap my hair up with a silk scarf, then massage my scalp with my fingers (I did it this way because I hated getting oil all over my hands). I didn't do it as often as I should have but now that I have a vibrating scalp massager, I will be doing this everyday!
Here's a little more info on Scalp Massages that I got from livestrong.com
A scalp massage can be one of the most enjoyable ways to help with hair growth. Not only does a massage increase the health of your hair and scalp, it can have a positive effect on your total well-being, as it reduces stress, enabling you to feel more relaxed.
Benefits-One of the most beneficial aspects of a scalp massage is that is will increase the circulation in the scalp area. This will help the hair follicles become receptive to the nutrients and oxygen they need for maximum health.
Effects-By increasing blood flow to the hair follicle, hair is less likely to go into the resting phase prematurely. After hair goes into the resting phase, it is shed so that new hair can begin to take its place. But if hair prematurely enters the resting phase, there could be an abundance of hair being shed at one time, which will give the appearance of thinning hair.
Considerations-There are a number of different oils used for scalp massage, with each one having its own particular strengths. Oils with lavender or rosemary are often used to help stimulate hair growth on people with thinning hair.
