Hair-Aerobics / Hair Exercise Program

Empirical research has shown that using pressure point “scalp massage” is a most effective way to encourage healthy hair growth. A scalp massage involves a number of specific pressure points on the head that can stimulate and invigorate the scalp while providing pleasant, relaxing sensations. The beauty of using pressure point massage is that it can be done at home when shampooing your hair. All you need is the healing power of your finger tips and these three simple steps when shampooing your hair.

To prepare the hair and scalp for shampooing, begin by brushing the hair from back to front several times with a scalp stimulator brush to remove tangles, lift dandruff and excess oil from the scalp and stimulate scalp circulation. Daily brushing can also help keep it clean and prevent styling aid buildup between shampoo’s. It’s the first step to healthy looking hair.


For a thorough cleansing of the hair and scalp, begin by applying shampoo through “WET HAIR” starting at the back of head where hair is thickest. To assure a more even coverage bring the shampoo up under the hair all around the hairline and work into leather.


To use pressure point massage, bend the head forward and place your fingers tips on the temples; press, rotate and slide your fingers through the hair as if combing it with your fingers. Move to the forehead, press, rotate and slide fingers back across the head. At the base of the neck, press, rotate and slide fingers up to the crown. Repeat each step three times and rinse thoroughly with cool water to remove all traces of shampoo. Just three steps and three minutes will assure a healthy head of hair. Add Hair-Aerobics to your fitness program and workout all the way.
