“One of things that often get shorted when receiving massage is the head and scalp. Adding this to my session made sure one of my favorites not only didn’t get overlooked, but it also ended up helping me sleep soundly that night. Wasn’t sure about leaving the oil in, but afterwards, it wasn’t as oily as I thought it would be. The next morning, after washing my hair, my hair felt so silky and smooth. Loved, loved, loved the whole experience!” C.T.
Applying herbalized oils to the head and massaging into the scalp is a traditional Ayurvedic practice that has been used for hundreds of years to maintain a thick, lustrous head of hair. Gently massaging the head stimulates the hair follicles and allows the deeply nourishing herbs and oils to penetrate the scalp, strengthening and thickening the hair at its roots. As an added bonus, pouring warmed oil over the forehead, and allowing it to stream gently into the scalp deepens relaxation, calms the mind and is known to ease headaches and promote sound, restful sleep.
This nourishing hot oil head massage includes an intensive scalp, head and neck massage. Depending on each person, we may also use the mini FaceBlaster tool. This tool is excellent for headache and tension relief due to restricted fascia. In addition, we use Bayan Botanical Ayurvedic herbal infused Healthy Hair Oil, which is specially crafted & blended to nourish and strengthen hair. The warmed oil is slowly poured onto the forehead and then gently massaged into the scalp. Warm water is then slowly streamed over the forehead (water shirodhara) followed with a heated towel wrap. This warming process gradually allow the oil to penetrate deep into the hair follicles, encouraging further relaxation and better absorption of this specially blended oil for the hair.
Healthy Hair Oil brings you the powerful effects the top three Ayurvedic herbs known to have a special affinity for your hair, cooked by traditional methods into a moisturizing and nourishing base of sesame and coconut oils, and then infused with the essence of hibiscus flowers, also used to support the natural health of hair. Bhringaraj, known as “the ruler of hair” rejuvenates the hair and scalp, supported by the cooling and cleansing effects of Amalaki and Brahmi (Gotu Kola). Together, the certified organic herbs are used to infuse the oil with qualities known to Ayurveda to strengthen and protect the hair, Healthy Hair oil will support your natural thickness, color, and shine.
* For best results, we encourage you to allow the oils to soak in for at least several hours before washing your hair. Please keep that in mind when scheduling. You can actually leave the oil in as long as you wish. It will continue to feed and nourish your hair and scalp until you decide to shampoo it out.
