Regular brushing of the scalp is not something that men like to do often, but they may want to think twice. Aside from feeling really good, regular brushing is good for the health of the scalp and hair and may help prevent common hair problems that affect men. Here are a few good reasons to start brushing your scalp today.
Boosts circulation to the scalp and hair
Brushing stimulates the blood vessels that deliver blood to the scalp and hair. Increased circulation in this area means that it receives adequate nutrition which makes the hair and scalp healthier and less resistant to breakage and hair fall, something that men, especially those who are at risk for hair loss, will find beneficial. Increased circulation and increased delivery of nutrition also promotes hair growth resulting to longer, healthier, stronger hair.
Helps spread natural oils for shinier hair
Brushing distributes and spreads the body’s natural oils so that they coat the entire strand, not just the top of the scalp. This gives the hair a natural sheen and help you avoid using synthetic hair products to give more life to your hair. This is a great result for men who want to transition to natural hair care products while still maintaining that glossy shine to the hair.
Scalp brushing promotes relaxation
There’s a reason why a trip to the barbershop or salon is considered a great time for some R&R by both men and women. Scalp brushing is promotes relaxation similar to the effect of a massage. You are essentially giving your scalp a massage when you brush scalp, making this a great way to relax and destress for virtually no cost.
