How to Stimulate your Hair Follicles

How to Stimulate your Hair Follicles

 If you’re experiencing thinning hair, you have probably tried anything and everything to help boost your hair growth! Luckily there are three simple things we can do at home to help our scalp health and stimulate our hair follicles. Increase the frequency of hair washing, focus on our scalp health, and embrace scalp massage. So whether you're aiming to achieve new growth, longer lengths, thicker strands, or simply want to improve overall hair and scalp health, incorporating these few key habits into your hair care routine can make a significant difference. 


Wash your hair more often: 

Contrary to popular belief, washing your hair more frequently is actually better than prolonging the time between washes. If you find yourself in a phase of increased shedding, the sight of seemingly excessive hair in the shower might be alarming. However, it's important to note that this isn't a consequence of washing your hair too often. On average, it's normal to lose approximately 100 hairs a day, and if you're extending the time between washes, you're more likely to notice a few days' worth of shed hair accumulating when you finally do wash. 

To foster healthy hair growth a healthy scalp is key. A clean scalp is less susceptible to clogged pores and hair follicles, creating an optimal environment for healthy hair growth. Washing your hair daily or every other day is crucial to remove product buildup, dirt, and dead skin cells that might impede growth. By maintaining a consistent washing routine, you're not only keeping your scalp pristine but also ensuring that your hair receives the nutrients and oxygen it needs for optimal health and growth. 

We’ve talked about the importance of cleansing and nourishing your scalp, so it makes sense that the products we use on our scalp matter. So it’s important to pay attention to the ingredients that are in (and also not in) the products you’re using. 

Look for a shampoo and conditioner that is sulfate and paraben free and packed full of good ingredients that will cleanse gently, hydrate your hair, and treat your scalp.  Brands like Boost & Be have been developed without sulfates, parabens petrochemicals, phthalates, MEA, DEA and artificial colours. The Growth Boost range is packed full of nourishing ingredients to stimulate your hair follicles and encourage healthy hair growth. 



The benefits of Scalp Massage: 

 Incorporating scalp massage into your regular hair care routine can yield remarkable results in stimulating hair follicles and promoting healthy hair growth. Scalp massage is not only effective in eliminating product buildup and dandruff but also plays a pivotal role in enhancing blood flow to the hair follicles, thereby improving overall circulation. 

The health of your hair follicles and blood flow is paramount for healthy hair growth. Each hair follicle relies on nutrients and oxygen supplied by blood vessels just beneath the skin. Poor scalp circulation can deprive these follicles of essential nutrients, resulting in smaller follicles and thinner hair, and potentially leading to hair loss. Introducing regular scalp massage into your routine enhances circulation, allowing more blood to flow through the scalp. Meaning, your hair follicles receive increased amounts of nutrients and oxygen, fostering the accelerated growth of healthy hair.  

A scalp massager like this one is gentle enough to use daily, and is a great addition to your hair routine. Use whilst you’re in the shower, or on it’s own on wet or dry hair.  


Focus on Scalp Health 

 If you're looking to stimulate healthy hair growth, prioritizing scalp health is a game-changer. While incorporating these simple practices like more frequent hair washing and regular scalp massage are both excellent initial steps, the products you choose for your hair routine can make a significant impact. A healthy scalp not only requires proper cleansing but also targeted treatment and repair. 


Enter the Boost & Be Repair Mask, a powerhouse of nourishing ingredients designed to deeply replenish not only your hair but also your scalp. By incorporating this mask into your hair routine at least once a week, you'll witness remarkable results. For an added indulgence, enhance the experience by using our scalp massager while leaving the mask on for 10 minutes. 


For daily treatment, try using the Boost & Be Revival Tonic - a non-greasy, lightweight spray formulated to nourish the scalp and follicles. This tonic not only soothes inflammation but also stimulates blood flow, promoting new growth. Simply spray directly onto your scalp with damp or dry hair and style as usual, making it a hassle-free yet effective addition to your daily hair care routine.
