60 day scalp massage!?

JohariJohari Posts: 673Registered Users
I'm always hearing a scalp massage will help grow hair but I get too lazy to do it even once a week.Does anyone else want to try doing it every other day or once a day for month? This is my hair today and in 2 months I'll post another pic to see if it grew its average 1 inch or longer due to the massage.Hopefully I'm consistant. I have 3 differenet main oils that I use but 3 others I haven't used since last yr.I don't know if you're suppose to massage you scalp with oil but I can't really do it without it.

    I wouldn't mind trying this. Once a day sounds good. I would try with oil but I'm nervous about putting that on my scalp. How long should the massage be?

    even messaging your scalp with out oil is great! though adding a oil, or a mixture of oils can really be beneficial in aiding with the growth. a few things, first choose a light oil, if your going to use essential oils, only use a few drops.
    Same base oils: argan oil, jojoba oil rosehip oil
    same essential oils that can help in growth: rosemary, tea tree, peppermints.

    Now ive made a mixture of rosemary, tea tree peppermints and argan oil, which i rubb into my scalp every night. i get same on the pads of my finger tips, rub them together then just message my scalp, i try to do it so i dont get it on my hair, cause i want the oil on my scalp. i just keep doing it till ive done my entire scalp, which takes about 5 mins. its part of my routine, so i dont forget.

    ooh and hair grows quicker during the day, so i always message it at night, after my shower and before i go to bed.
    hope that helps ladies! :)

    my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
    my hair loves conditioner only styling!
    Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
    my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

    Ya I couldn't really keep up after about a week I got lazy.
    Did anyone actually go all 60 days?
  • FmasuhrFmasuhr Posts: 1,354Registered Users Curl Neophyte
    yep, ive been doing it for months, just recently i havent had time to do it . my current mixture is: half argan oil, n half evening primrose oil, few drops of rosemary, peppermints and vitemine E oil. i really enjoy this cause it smells amazing and helps me to fall asleep, helps if you got a cold, head aches or just to help you relax. i keep it beside my bed so i dont forget.

    Wow I didnt know it could help a cold
  • JohariJohari Posts: 673Registered Users
    Well this is from about a month ago and the last from a couple days ago after a trim.I think I will try the 60 days again. I definately don't want to get sick in those fall/winter months.

    I want to try it too. I already mixed my oils: olive, coconut, castor, tea tree, vitamin e oil and a bit of cinnamon and cayenne pepper.
  • JohariJohari Posts: 673Registered Users
    Ya sounds like a good mix but you don't have to use oil all the time.For me its too much but water might help with the massage too.
  • FmasuhrFmasuhr Posts: 1,354Registered Users Curl Neophyte
    what ever works for you. the oil mixture is great, it even keeps my hair clean and free of dandruff.

    I would like to try this too! I have heard that it is very good for the scalp (especially if massaged upside down, but i have been lazy about doing it this past month since school started. I will try though. Maybe I'll make a check list next to my bed so I don't forget! :lol:

    Actually I don't hink id last because I tend to scratch my itchy scalp and then it gets too sore massage.I usually only put oil in when my scalp is itchy/dry.

    Id say just do 60 days for your individual self because I probably won't be consistant and don't want to start when I know I won't be consistant.

    Yayyyy I literally just started doing scalp massages w/avocado, sweet almond, and that CURLS (sp?) growth oil like a week ago and I'm already in love. It makes my hair feel so moisturized and soft and my scalp feels amazing; clean and no build up. I massage with my head upside down over my bed twice a week for about 5 minutes and make sure I get the oil right onto my scalp. Love it.

    Where do all of you buy your oils? Is Whole Foods a good place to look?

    I use to buy regular olive oil from safeway and tried coconut oil from 'Health Unlimited' and it smelled rancid so I don't go there for carrier oils.For essential oils I go to Health Unlimited.
    I found a liquior store that sells oils and foods from other countries.There I got grapeseed,almond,flaxseed,ect oil and it was a great price like $9 for 18oz.Its cheaper than health unlimited but I have to take a bus to get there so I wait til I run out of everything except for my local olive oil.

    I buy my oils on amazon. Com they have great prices and fast shipping

    Id still rather buy oils from the store since its right there and you can use it in the same day.
    The only oil that looks like a good deal is the mustard oil but I bought some at a store and the smell is so pungent.
  • GrachipuchisGrachipuchis Posts: 7Registered Users
    That's true. I would do that too but there aren't many places around my home that sell good oils. Have u tried the mustard oil yet? I wanted to try it for hair growth but not too sure yet
  • JohariJohari Posts: 673Registered Users
    I tried to last year but mixed it with conditioner I hated the smell so I didn't use it alone on my hair/scalp.
    I don't know if it helped my hair a lot but I didn't break my hair.
  • GrachipuchisGrachipuchis Posts: 7Registered Users
    Do u know of any good oils for dry hair?

    Avocado and olive oil always makes my hair feel so soft and conditioned.
  • GrachipuchisGrachipuchis Posts: 7Registered Users
    Thanks for the tip:) I will look into getting some avocado oil cause my hair is very thirsty

    Also, you should try baggying or hot oil treatments with it. Amazing.

    I try to do it when I remember but you have to be careful with how you are massaging because once I was massaging and had my hands all up in my hair and I ended up with sooo many tangles!
  • JohariJohari Posts: 673Registered Users
    Ya that's why I've been doing it before a wash and then adding conditioner to pre wash I do it about twice a week.
