Been through a pregnancy? Did you know scalp massage can help with postpartum hair loss, the itchiness of an itchy scalp, and the signs of new growth? Learn more here.
If you've given birth, then you're probably familiar with the postpartum hair loss that can occur. This isn't just a cosmetic issue—it's a real condition that can be treated with a little bit of TLC.
One of the best ways to treat postpartum hair loss is through scalp massage. This can help get your hair back on track by building up blood circulation in your scalp, which helps promote healthy hair growth and prevent further loss.
Women are particularly susceptible to hair loss postpartum. But it's not a foregone conclusion. Start by massaging your scalp regularly, whether you're able or not. Whether it's every day or once a week, aim for at least 10 minutes in total (split up if necessary). If you wouldn't normally do this, then ask your partner to flick the tips of their fingers along your hair line in different directions. This helps break up any blockage in the circulation and can be calming. If there's still a lot of hair coming out after 3 months, visit your doctor just to make sure it isn't anything more serious. It might be stress-related.
And while it may sound like an odd thing to do during pregnancy, there are actually many benefits to getting regular massages during this time! Regular massages can help reduce stress and anxiety levels, which are common among new moms; they also promote relaxation and encourage a feeling of well-being.
You might be surprised at how much better you feel after just one session!
