Embrace the Curl Girl Way: Boost Circulation Without Brushing! 

One way to boost circulation to your scalp is to massage your scalp.  Some people like to do this by brushing their hair, but as you know, bristles are generally a NO GO for curly hair.  Bristles can cause frizz and disrupt those gorgeous curls.  Rather than missing out on the benefits to your scalp, there is a solution that will detangle and boost circulation without compromising your beautiful locks. Get ready to embrace the magic of scalp stimulation without a brush in sight! 

Give your scalp the royal treatment with scalp massages! These blissful exercises are relaxing and super beneficial for your hair. You increase blood circulation by gently massaging your scalp, allowing vital nutrients to reach your hair follicles. This also brings an extra glow to your face.  There are several variations:

  • See if you can't get your sweetie to give you the massage.  It's like a spa day for your scalp and a rejuvenating party for your hair! 
  • Use your fingertips to gently massage your scalp.  A delightful scalp exercise alternative that doesn't involve brushing your hair. 
  • A wide-tooth comb can also provide a lovely scalp massage, as well as detangle your curls. 
  • This is a wonderful opportunity for a moisturizing treatment.  Use a conditioner or a scalp oil to create slip and allow your comb, your fingers (or your sweetie's) to easily slide across your scalp. 
  • To increase circulation, you can bend over at the waist to let the hair on top of your head hang down, which will give you easier access to massage your scalp on top in addition to naturally bringing circulation to your head.  Be careful of course, and only do it for a minute!  Ask your doctor first!
  • Opting for gentle techniques that not only detangle but also boost circulation benefit your scalp  tremendously and improve your hair health.
  • Don't forget to do a gentle rub to your temples.  It just feels so good!

Remember, the key is to carefully handle your curls to prevent unnecessary breakage and to be gentle to your scalp.  Let yourself relax and enjoy the sensation of scalp stimulation.   Discover the wonders of scalp stimulation without sacrificing your beautiful curls. Embrace the power of finger finesse and choose gentle techniques that detangle and boost circulation. Your curls will thank you for the love and care you give them.

But wait, there's more!
