Elevating Your Salon Experience with Wood Comb Scalp Massage

Scalp Massage is a valuable technique that plays a significant role in enhancing the well-being of your clients’ hair.

This practice is believed to

  • Stimulate blood circulation in the scalp
  • Lead to an increase in hair root diameter


Stimulate blood circulation in the scalp

In situations where scalp blood circulation is compromised, hair follicles struggle to access the necessary nutrients required for maintaining hair health. This deficiency can result in a decline in hair follicle vitality, leading to issues like hair thinning and eventual hair loss.


The Art of Scalp Massage Begins With a Wood Comb Massage

The primary objective of scalp massage is to enhance blood circulation. When selecting a wooden comb, opt for one with a broad paddle width and a long handle, allowing you to reach every part of your scalp effortlessly.

Begin by positioning your fingers at the centerline of your hairline, gently moving backward in a circular motion to knead at each point. Repeat this process 3-4 times for each section. 

Tip: Start massaging from the front hairline and continue up to the Golden Point.

Paying Attention to Every Detail of Scalp Massage Service

To elevate your service to the next level, ensure that you carefully observe and cater to their needs, enhancing their overall feeling of relaxation and satisfaction. It is crucial to be mindful of the sensitivity of a customer’s ears while combing their hair. Employ a gentle touch with the comb to ensure their utmost comfort and avoid any potential discomfort or pain.

When providing a massage, customize the orbit and combing tracks based on the customer’s head size. If the client has voluminous hair, take more tracks in this specific section, typically around 3 to 4.

Hairdresser Q: What to do if hair becomes tangled during a massage?

When confronted with a tangled hair predicament, take a moment to pause and delicately comb through it before moving forward. This simple act will restore order and allow you to proceed with ease.

Hairdresser Q: What to Do if head Keeps Moving During the Service

Use your left hand to hold the hair away from the guest’s face around the forehead.

On the contrary, when the blood flow within the scalp improves, it empowers hair follicles to absorb a rich supply of essential nutrients, fostering thicker and healthier hair growth. To further facilitate this process, we recommend considering shampoos or scalp care products enriched with botanical extracts, such as Thyme, Peppermint, NcPA, Ginger Tincture, or Juniperus Communis.
