No one wants to go bald or to have a thinner head of hair. Unfortunately, hair loss is a common problem for both men and women. Because of this, many people look for ways to promote hair growth and mitigate the effects of balding. One technique people consider is scalp massage.
But does it work? Read on to learn more about whether massaging scalps can prevent hair loss.
How Would Scalp Massage Prevent Hair Loss?
There are many claims about scalp massage being an effective treatment for hair loss. The alleged benefits include promoting blood flow, strengthening hair roots and reducing stress. In turn, these are said to promote healthy hair follicles and reduce hair loss.
Does It Work?
The jury is still out on whether massaging scalps can help prevent hair loss. Despite the numerous claims of benefits and patents for scalp massage devices, there have not been many scientific studies into the matter.
One study performed in the 90s examined whether a daily massage with essential oils would promote hair growth in patients with alopecia areata. The study did find a statistically significant improvement for the active group. However, it is important to note that the control group also received a daily massage without essential oils.
Additionally, the above study was examining alopecia areata. This is a different condition than androgenetic alopecia, the condition known as male pattern baldness in men.
It is possible that scalp massage can help prevent hair loss. Massage certainly does improve blood flow near surface tissue and can help combat stress. However, despite massage being used in medicine for millennia and many claims about the benefits for hair growth, there has yet to be much reliable scientific evidence that it works.
Significantly, there are many other treatments for hair loss that are more closely based on scientific evidence and are clinically tested. While there is likely no harm in trying scalp massage, it is probably best not to rely on this method alone to treat a hair loss condition.
Instead, consider some more carefully-tested options, such as the following...
Revita is a hair-stimulating shampoo that uses research-backed ingredients to improve hair health and promote growth. It is a great option for both men and women concerned about hair loss, thinning hair and androgenetic alopecia.
The active compounds in Revita Shampoo have been clinically tested and shown to be associated with faster hair growth and hair regrowth following hair loss. These compounds include dihydrotestosterone (DHT) blockers, ketoconazole and caffeine. The shampoo also includes biotin, which is essential for hair growth.
In addition to promoting hair growth, Revita also includes amino acids, botanical extracts and other compounds that help strengthen and fill out existing hair. The shampoo works for any type of hair, supports follicle health, stimulates the scalp, increases hair density and thickness, combats the effects of aging and generally strengthens your hair.
Clinical studies on the ingredients of Revita Shampoo, including the proprietary Nanosome delivery system, have shown that it is effective at addressing hair loss. These are some of the statistics for using Revita Shampoo for 90 days:
- 92% experienced a decrease in hair loss.
- 85% experienced an improvement in the appearance of their hair.
- 70% experienced a reduction in hair loss rate.
For both men and women who are worried about or experiencing hair loss, Revita is an effective and tested solution.
Spectral DNC-N is a topical hair-loss treatment with innovative compounds shown to effectively address hair loss. The treatment includes Nonoxidil, an effective alternative to minoxidil with no known side effects and multiple mechanisms of action.
This breakthrough topical treatment includes key compounds that block DHT, a hormone associated with male and female pattern hair loss. The treatment also opens ion channels in follicle cells and reduces inflammation of the scalp.
Like Revita, Spectral DNC-N has been clinically shown to effectively improve hair loss. It also has helped to boost confidence and satisfaction with the user’s hair. These are some of the results from a perception study, a study of the Nanosome delivery system, and a study of the Nanoxidil active compound:
- 95% noticed less hair loss.
- 90% noticed increased hair strength.
- 75% noticed increased hair growth.
Unlike scalp massage and other methods you might run into on the internet, this is a treatment for hair loss you can rely on to make a difference.
