Ayurvedic Scalp Massage

Ayurveda recommends that we treat ourselves to a scalp massage once a week.  If you have dry hair or dandruff, you may want to do this twice a week.  If you have oily skin or hair, you can do the massage without the oil.  First thing in the morning, or last thing before bed is the best time for this treatment.  Start by warming 1 teaspoon of sesame oil.  Massage this into the scalp for ten minutes.  Use the pads of your fingers, not your nails.  Massage in a circular motion. Then wrap your head in a hot towel and leave on for about 10 minutes more.  Wash hair with a gentle shampoo.  Massage increases circulation to the scalp and promotes healthy hair growth.  And it feels great!
