Being mindful by completely surrendering to a yummy head massage:
I’ve been looking forward to my hair appointment for weeks and weeks.
Not only because my hair desperately needed it, as I only get to go every six months or so due to budget and health restrictions.
Not only because I look forward to catching up with my lovely hairdresser who I’ve been going to now, whenever I’m back in my home city, for around 17 years.
But also because I get to bliss out to the heavenly scalp massage I receive when I’m having my hair shampooed.
Ahh, such bliss.
Studies have shown that head massages can increase endorphins and serotonin in your body and relieve stress and anxiety.
And I can totally see why.
It feels soooooo incredible amazing, dreamily relaxing, and it makes me tingle from head to toe.
I could seriously lie there all day long.
As well as being a blissful experience, there are a plethora of benefits for your hair: enhancing blood circulation to flow more easily to the roots; adding natural shine and luster to hair; strengthening the roots to help hair growth, and so many more.
I’ve tried giving myself a head massage, but it’s not anywhere close. And I’ve tried Indian Head Massages too, and while these are also lovely, it’s not quite the same as the salon experience.
While I try to live in the present moment as much as possible, I’m already looking forward to my next appointment in six months time….
