Crystal Combs are designed to bring gentle stimulation to the scalp and melt away the tension that makes it feel tight or tender.
By activating the blood flow in our head we trigger the parasympathetic nervous system (the part of the body that is responsible for our resting + digesting).
That’s what makes it an important part of a self-care routine.
For hair growth:The benefits of a scalp massage for hair growth centers on the hair follicles. Each hair on your head starts its life within a follicle, located just beneath the skin on your scalp.
According to research, scalp massage increases hair thickness by stretching the cells of hair follicles. This, in turn, stimulates the follicles to produce thicker hair. It’s also thought that a scalp massage may help dilate blood vessels beneath the skin, thereby encouraging hair growth.
How often should you do a scalp massage?
Generally speaking, the more often you can give yourself a scalp massage, the better. Make it work for your schedule, whether that’s every time you wash your hair in the shower or when you’re watching TV. A few minutes every day will deliver magic, but doing it a few times a week still delivers results, too.
- Take a moment to connect with your comb, it's a crystal after all :)
Set your intentions:
While holding it in your hands set intentions for this moment.
Since you’ll use it on your head and crown chakra, you might want to focus on that: Do you need to remind yourself that your mind is a safe space? Is this an opportunity to connect with your intuition? A ritual to release and let go?
Whatever is on your heart, allow your mind to speak it out loud.
Begin at the sides of your head:
- Start with dry or wet hair, free of accessories, so you can reach all of your scalp.
Though a scalp massage can be done on wet or dry hair, having wet hair makes it easier for the comb to glide.
- A good approach to scalp massage is to start closer to the face and temples, working your way back along the scalp until you reach the neck area in the back of the head.
- Then work your way around your head to ensure that you won’t miss a spot, which is easy to do when you can’t see the back of your head.
- Taking your time and moving slowly helps ensure that won’t happen, and focus on one section one at a time.
- You can give a little extra love to the places where your scalp sweats the most, such as the temples and back of the head where the skull meets the base of the neck, or the hairline, where you can get buildup from hair products and makeup.
- If you’re doing a massage in the shower this will help your hair products to penetrate more deeply.
