Scalp Massage to prevent Hair Loss

This isn’t one of those “try it, it may work” thing. I’m telling you, this works absolutely brilliantly for me.


(This isn’t a picture of me, by the way!)

A while ago, I was finding hair all over the bathroom every time I washed my hair. The most irritating thing was, they keep clogging up the drain and eventually, the water doesn’t even go down anymore. Not only that, my hair loss is pretty bad to the point that you walk in the bathroom and find hair on the lose, wrecking havoc at every part of the room.

So, what is the best way to prevent hair loss?

This is a method that works 100% for me, but the pain in the ass thing is that you have to keep it up. So you can’t do it for two weeks and stop because your hair has stopped falling out.

Scalp Massages


Put both hands on your forehead and let your fingers massage this area, then work your way around the head.


Massage every part of the head (scalp) as hard as you can possibly take it.

You may feel something strange, like a numbness or pain, sometimes it may even feel as if you have a headache. Don’t stop at that, because having these sensations is a good thing! You’re stimulating blood flow and increasing circulation. It’s a great self healing technique that not only cures hair loss, but all types of other problems, such as headaches and even insomnia.

Important things to Remember

You must massage every day. It’s likely that once you stop, your hair will return to the state it was before.

The massage has to be hard, and when I say that, it means you feel it being painful, but it’s a pain you know you can take.

My experiences with Massage

Massaging my scalp has been a miracle for me when it comes to stopping hair loss. Ever since I began doing it every day, I only lose a few hair strands, unlike before when my whole brush was filled with hair. You can usually notice a difference in a week or two after you do the massage. However, not massaging (as sometimes I do get slack) just makes the hair loss problem come back.

      OMG I AM SO HAPPY to hear that it has helped you! haha wouldn’t it be amazing if they invented this machine that could give us a massage every day? I know that would be amazing and yes, I think when you are massaging, you’re increasing blood flow so your hair gets stronger. Sadly if you stop massaging, usually it will return to the way it was. Really great hearing from you!

    Im a college student girl and ive been suffering for 2 yrs. First i thought it was stress but it has gotten slowly worse with periods of lot of hair loss in between. I feel like my scalp has gotten drier thru the yrs and it seems like my scalp cannot hold the hair. The roots also seem super weak. Im gonna try massaging too. Does it still work for you susanna? Is there a big difference? let me know!

      Hi! Sorry to hear you’ve been having suffering from hair loss. For me, it works really well when I continuously massage it very hard every day, but as soon as I stop, it goes back to the way it was. I think massaging really helps blood flow. Or, there are hair brushes that are very tough, that does the same job. You may want to try that too!

    I cried every night when my hair loss problem worsen. then I found articles regarding no poo( shampoo free) and yes it works. am using flour water to replace shampoo. the result is good. loss hair from about 100 strands per day reduced to about 20 per day. There are alternatives like baking soda but I just stick to flour. just sieve a little of flour and mixed with cool water then add in some boiling water, and stir. Then you can wash your hair with the flour water already. this process is a must if not the flour with stick on your hair.

    Lovely post. I have only recently started reading up on this subject for research of my own. I’ve come across many ‘fad’ ideas for combating hair loss but this seems to be a lot more natural. Thanks for the post – great information gathered here ( I also like the fact it combats stress lol ).

    Hi there

    This is quite interesting as there’s been a lot of interest lately in something called “detumescence therapy”, which seems somewhat similar to what you are doing

    I’ve been on DT therapy for about 3.5 months and am still thinning, but it’s too early to see any real results. I use a lot of pressure, and can say with 100% certainty that my scalp is much looser than before, and I have broken down/flattened a big hard bulge on my widow’s peak area, so it must be doing something!
