There is a misconception among people that scalp massage is harmful as it draws blood flow towards the scalp. Rather, scalp massage is way more beneficial than anyone can think. Scalp massage not only reduces stress, and improves blood pressure and heart rate, but also elevates hair growth as it helps nutrients reach hair follicles.
