Quick Trick for Healthier Hair

Quick Trick for Healthier Hair

If you want your hair to have more bounce and body, more lustrous shine and softness–while helping to normalize scalp conditions like dandruff or the over-production of oil–then this quick trick is for you.

Rejuvenate those lifeless locks in just a few minutes a day, and with no hair products to buy or make. Find out the trick here:

Just 5 minutes of scalp massage every day can do wonders for your hair, since many hair problems stem for lack of circulation in the scalp. Here’s how to do it:

1. Bend over at the waist while standing or sitting to begin increasing circulation.

2. Put your fingertips underneath your hair at the base of your neck and use small circular motions to massage this area. Slowly move up and forward toward your forehead.

3. Once you’ve reached your forehead, reverse directions and massage back down to the base of your neck.

4. Beginning with your fingertips at the base of your neck, move up and over each ear toward your temples. Do 10 slow, circular motions over your temples. As you do this, you will feel any tension drain from your head. Now reverse direction and return to the base of your neck.

I do this as a matter of course - not for the reasons described in this article, but because I often feel tense and tight in my head. I may not have the best health of my sisters, but I have got the best hair!
