Stop Hair Loss with Massage

The goal is to bring a greater flow of blood to your hair follicle faster and to make your scalp more flexible. You can do this by becoming serious about massage treatments that you do yourself at home. Massage will also help carry away carbon dioxide and waste and speed the removal of oil and dead dells that combine to form debris on your scalp’s surface. Such debris hardens and sticks to the scalp, reducing circulation and eventually destroying hair roots. Often, this debris can’t be seen by the naked eye because it can form in the skin’s pores and be invisible.

With the fingertips of both hands placed firmly on your head, push the skin under your hair in circular motion for about ten seconds, moving from place to place on your head until the entire scalp is covered. Do this until your head tingles and feels warm (from increased circulation). Pay special attention to thinning areas or bald spots. You can’t massage too much and don’t be afraid to rub vigorously.

Next, after the blood is coursing through your scalp, take a clump of hair in each hand and pull on it gently with a smooth, firm motion and hold it for a count of three, then release and repeat until you have “pulled” the hair over your scalp.

Hand Spa Treatments

The hands are one of your body parts that will always give your age away. Your face maybe baby soft and clear but the passing years show on an aging woman’s hands. Aging hands that cannot be rejuvenated by moisturizers and creams may need spa treatments.

Paraffin hand treatment.

Hands are submerged in heated wax, usually three times, to allow moisture into the deeper layers of the skin. The hands are then covered up with a plastic wrap and mitts to keep the paraffin working on your skin for 10 minutes. The result is soft, smooth, supple hands.

Hand restoration treatment

A high-tech machine softens, firms and tones skin, and lessens wrinkles. This technology is known as micro current therapy, which uses a machine from CACI, or Computer Aided Cosmetology Instrument, of Europe. The therapy involves gliding two probes over your hands, sending electrical impulses to your muscles to tighten them and stimulate cell rejuvenation.
