If you’re experiencing increased hair loss, it’s important to stay calm and consider potential causes such as lifestyle and diet choices. Certain preventative measures, such as scalp massages and hair serum treatments, may help to promote hair growth. Consult a expert for personalized advice.
Massaging the scalp.
Scalp massages are a simple and effective way to promote hair growth and increase volume. Daily massages are believed to increase blood flow to the scalp, which in turn results in fuller, thicker hair. You can use your hands or a special scalp massager brush to massage your scalp. The massage feels good and it is an easy way to stimulate hair growth.
“Gently massaging the scalp with hair oil or masks can improve blood flow and encourage hair growth,” says Lopez. “This is because massaging targets the dermal papilla cells, which are important for new hair growth, and can result in thicker hair. However, it’s important to be gentle during the massage to avoid causing breakage.”
Scalp massages can stimulate hair growth, and the right hair serum can enhance the benefits. Hair serums, which are different from hair oils, are silicone-based products that provide shine, smoothness, and hydration to the hair. They can be used on wet or dry hair and have been shown to help reduce hair loss. According to Dr. Cheruki, pumpkin seed oil is a good choice of ingredient for hair serums because of its high nutrient content, which can nourish and thicken the hair follicles.
According to him, Pumpkin seed oil is rich in omega-3 and 6 fatty acids, vitamins A, K, E and zinc, which all aid in promoting healthy hair growth. Additionally, it helps in reducing dandruff and scalp irritation, preventing thinning of hair. Pumpkin seed oil is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, which helps to reduce scalp inflammation, promoting overall hair health.
According to Dr. Cheruki, an effective way to use pumpkin seed oil is by mixing it with other natural oils such as jojoba or coconut oil. This combination can help erase wrinkles and soften skin. Dr. Cheruki suggests mixing a few drops of pumpkin seed oil with one teaspoon of another natural oil, massaging the mixture onto the scalp in circular motions. The mixture should be left on the hair overnight, or at least 30 minutes before being washed off. This routine can nourish and thicken hair follicles while reducing scalp irritation. Moreover, one can also add a few drops of pumpkin seed oil to regular shampoo and conditioner for additional benefits.
