But back to hair... The benefits are many!
It stimulates growth and reduces hair loss: Blood circulation is essential to the transport of nutrients that build healthy, strong and shiny hair. When stimulated through massage with the combit gives strength and vitality to the hair follicles, boosting not only the growth but also the thickness of the hair fibers.
Releases impurities from the pores: our scalp accumulates dirt and we can't always get rid of it all when washing our hair, and can be left with residue blocking the hair follicles and preventing growth. A massage lets the follicles breathe and release impurities, which not only stimulates growth but also prevents and improves irritated scalp or dandruff.
Improves hair texture: the cosmetic industry has been creating shampoos and other products with silicones in an attempt to fill out the hair - but we know that the negative impacts of these compounds on our health do not outweigh the benefits. If you want natural and very functional alternatives for your hair, you can check out the shampoos herei. This massage is a safe way to fill in the hair, improving its texture and volume, since it nourishes the hair fibers and boosts their growth.
It enhances the absorption of hair products: By stimulating blood circulation and clearing the follicles, the botanical actives of your products are better able to penetrate the bloodstream and really demonstrate their potential. You can and should put a few drops of Super Hair Serum Serum on the hair when you do the massage.
