Why Get a Scalp Massage?
1. Spread Natural Oils
The sebaceous glands in your scalp produce sebum: an oily, waxy substance that naturally softens and waterproofs your hair. During a scalp massage, that oil will be worked through the full length of your strands, increasing shine and moisture.
Those with curly or wavy hair might find massages particularly effective because sebum will otherwise get trapped in curl patterns, leaving ends dry and unruly.
