Scalp massages for thinning hair is one of the most popular TikTok hair hacks. Gently massaging your scalp can improve blood circulation, remove product build up and dead skin cells and even stimulate hair growth. Use a natural oil like coconut or castor, or even better, our amazing Hair Gain Hair Mask, and lightly massage into your scalp and locks with your fingers. You can even use a scalp massager!
