Scalp Exfoliation and Scalp Blood Circulation Improvement
Your hair receives the nutrients it needs to grow via the bloodstream. Furthermore, If your hair is weak, brittle, lackluster or thinning, it is almost certainly not receiving a good blood supply. However, we can fix this (ie. scalp exfoliation), and many of the instructions in this guide on how to prevent hair loss. The better the blood supply to your hair follicles, the more hair growth you will see. We need to do everything we can to increase the blood supply to your hair follicles.
Years of using conditioners, gels, waxes, hair sprays and other cosmetics may have caused a build-up of chemicals on your scalp. We need to exfoliate your scalp to make the skin fresh, healthy and the pores clear. Let’s start with a simple mild exfoliation:
Hard Bristled Boar Brush
Purchase a hard bristled boar brush which will cost you between $1 and $20. For this reason, we recommend buying a good quality one (with real, tough boar hairs) as it will last ten times as long and will exfoliate your scalp more effectively.
You should perform it between three and five times per day for about 2 minutes, every day. If you have fragile hair that is susceptible to split ends, consider applying a small amount of pure coconut oil to your hair half an hour before doing the exfoliation, to protect your hair. Only use a very small amount of coconut oil and apply it to your hair, not your scalp.
As you progress through this website, your hair will get much stronger. Even the boar brush technique will increase the strength of your hair.
Once every few weeks, give your brush a good wash. At this point, if you’re using the coconut oil to protect your hair, wash the brush every day. In addition, from time to time wash the brush with a little antibacterial spray and rinse very well.
Please note: If you have a flaky or inflamed scalp, don’t complete Step 1 yet. Instead, refer to the instructions on “Do you have a flaky scalp? If so please read the following carefully…”.
How to perform the exercise:
- Make sure your hair is dry. Don’t perform this exercise if your hair is wet.
- Brush your scalp 100 times, holding the brush firmly down to scrape the scalp skin, exfoliating it.
- Brush your scalp in one direction – either back to front, or front to back. This should not be painful.
If you notice your scalp feeling a little sensitive, stop doing the boar brush exfoliation for the remainder of the day. You may notice a little sensitivity due to Dermaroller use (you’ll learn about the Dermaroller in later steps). If so, go a bit easier on the brushing. While you are doing this you can start your hair growth nutrition program.
