Thinning hair is a problem that begins to bother men in their 20s and women in their 30s. Hospitals are only a last resort. It is common sense for smart adults to prevent it with simple daily care! You can do it when you wash your head, so it is up to you whether you want to practice it or not.
What causes thinning hair?
The most significant cause of thinning hair in both men and women, with the exception of hereditary hair loss in men, is “poor blood circulation” in the scalp due to aging and stress. Hair follicles, where hair is produced, are connected to capillaries. If blood is not properly delivered to these vessels, healthy hair is not produced and hair grows thin.
Furthermore, since the scalp is the top layer of skin on the body, it is prone to poor blood circulation. In addition, stiff shoulders and neck tend to cause poor blood circulation, which in turn leads to poor blood circulation in the scalp. But once you know the cause of this problem, the solution is simple. Start taking care of your scalp to improve circulation and prevent thinning hair!
Anyone can do it! How to Increase Scalp Blood Circulation
Today, the air quality is poor, and most of us probably wash our hair every day. Everyone naturally touches their scalp when shampooing. If you use this shampoo time, it is not a hassle. Let me give you a quick lecture on the procedure.
- Shoulder and neck rub
Do not just start rubbing your scalp because you want to improve blood circulation, as this may startle your stiff scalp and further reduce blood flow. First, relax the shoulders and neck, which are obstructing blood circulation to the scalp, by pressing and rubbing them. The guideline is about 30 seconds.
- Behind the ears
Once the shoulders and neck are loosened, next rotate behind the ears in a circular motion. This area also tends to be tight and clogged, so relax it slowly for about 30 seconds. Tilt your head back slightly and use the weight of your head to help loosen them.
- From the sides of the temples to the top of the head
Place your little fingers on both temples and support the entire head so that your thumbs hold the base of the head. In this state, unwind in a circular motion for about 30 seconds, then gradually pull up toward the top of the head.
- Do not forget the forehead.
Finally, use the bellies of your four fingers to unwind your forehead in a circular motion for about 30 seconds. It is easier to do this if you look down slightly and hold the back of your head with one hand. If you are thinking a lot or have wrinkles between your eyebrows, you may feel a little pain.
In this case, we recommend that you do it slowly for about one minute. Since this relaxes the frontal muscles, a large muscle group, you can expect a lifting effect on your face and beautiful skin.
For even better results, do it after soaking in a bathtub or showering at the back of the neck and shoulders to warm up the body.
Increased effectiveness of scalp items.
Many people who are concerned about thinning hair are the first to buy scalp care cosmetics. We want to maximize the effectiveness of the cosmetics we have purchased, don’t we? In that case, if you apply the cosmetics after taking a bath after you have relieved your scalp during shampoo time, the synergistic effect will lead to better care of your scalp.
First of all, let’s relax your scalp every day as much as possible during shampoo time to get a healthy scalp and hair!
