Even though we have an image that “scalp care is good for hair,” it is hard to know what the actual benefits are. Therefore, we tend to think, “Maybe I should do it, but oh well….
But that’s a real waste! The benefits of scalp care are not only for your hair. Here are five unknown benefits that will make you want to start taking care of your scalp right away.
These are the five benefits scalp care brings!
- Eliminates frizzy hair.
A major cause of kinky hair is heredity, but one of the causes is shampoo and styling products clogging the pores. By removing dirt from the pores through scalp care, hair can become straighter and less kinky.
- Coldness is improved.
Since the scalp is rarely moved in daily life, it tends to become stiff and blood circulation is poor. If blood circulation in the scalp is improved by massaging the scalp, blood circulation in the entire body is also improved, and coldness is improved. Also, if the cold is cured, the immune system will be strengthened, and you will be less likely to catch a cold.
You can tell if your scalp has poor circulation by moving your scalp. Ideally, you should be able to move your fingers along your scalp by placing them on your scalp.
- Smaller face
The scalp and facial skin are connected. If sagging of the scalp is improved by scalp massage, sagging of the face will also be improved. By improving the sagging of the face, the face will appear smaller. In addition, the pores and wrinkles will become less noticeable and the skin will look younger, killing two birds with one stone.
- Removes eye fatigue.
The scalp is densely packed with acupressure points. Some of them are effective for eye strain. Massaging the scalp stimulates these pressure points and reduces eye fatigue. Specifically, the acupoints “Tianzhu” and “Fuchi” located at the hairline on the back of the head are effective for eye fatigue, so massage them well down to the hairline.
- Better Sleep
Scalp care removes dirt from the pores and exposes the deepest layers of the scalp to the outside air, which refreshes the mind and relaxes the entire body. Also, when the stiffened scalp is loosened, the parasympathetic nervous system becomes dominant, allowing you to get a good night’s sleep. If you have trouble sleeping lately, it is worth a try.
Scalp care for the whole body is truly universal care!
Thus, the benefits of scalp care are not limited to hair, but cover the entire body, from a smaller face to improved immunity. Therefore, it would be a waste not to take care of your scalp just because you “don’t have hair problems. I want to start today!
