The FYH Brush is committed to providing education about the importance of scalp health from a holistic standpoint, in a world that seems to largely ignore the potential of caring for ourselves starting deep at the roots.
Brushing our hair regularly encourages life-giving blood flow to feed cell division, and supports healthy rapid hair growth. When we dig deeper under the surface we see that the health of our scalp effects many other aspects of us, from immune function and parasympathic nervous system to energetic clearing, intuition, and our spiritual connection.
Our scalp is made up of a complex network of muscles, nerves, fascia and lymphatic fluid. Like the rest of your body, It is a part of a vital living system that supports your wellness.
Why Care For Your Scalp?
If you are a person who gets stuck in your own head and thoughts, brushing releases tension and brings you back into your physical body, melting mental tension and opening your physical capacity to experience the world through your senses beyond rational.
Massaging and brushing the scalp regulates the parasympathec nervous system,helping support our bodies out of fight or flight mode and into rest and digest.
Blood circulation feeds mitosis, the division of cells that create the protein of your hair. The more our blood circulates our scalp, the faster our hair grows.
The fascia is a web of tissue that spreads across your scalp and connects into the rest of your body. This web supports the flow of information throughout your entire system, and it can get tight and blocked from stress and lack of physical stimulation.
When the fascia functions without blockage, it supports cognitive clarity, aids in circulation,
eases tension headaches and migraines.
Lymph is the waters of your body, which carry white blood cells throughout your system. These cells aid in Immune function, and support your bodies ability to protect itself.
Healthy circulation of lymphatic fluid ensures that vital information flow to all of our bodies systems. Scalp stimulation helps keep these waters moving and pumping properly, maximizing our immune response.
The scalp is located at our 7th Chakra, our body's center of divine spiritual connection. Our 7th
chakra is where we access Insight, revelation, experience feelings of one-ness, and receive unconditional love.
The 7th Chakra is where we find our highest self, the great conductor of the symphony.
The act of brushing is largely (yet not entirely) a tradition passed down through the maternal line, and helps us access the feelings of unconditional love from a universal mother.
Caring for our scalp by brushing clears stagnant energy away from the 7th Chakra, allowing it to
shine brightly and function to its highest capability as a receptive energetic center.
Connection to your scalp heightens your awareness of your environment, sharpening your intuition and ability to sense what is happening around you.
Scalp care puts you in a deeper connection to this keen awareness and brilliant body signaling ability.
Every single hair follicle in our scalp has its own tiny muscle connected to a nerve. These little muscles constrict and relax in response to every single change of environment, whether we notice it cognitively or not.
When these little muscles restrict, they send signals to our brain to activate stress hormones
and put us on alert. So before your brain even knows it, your body is alert to potential danger,
change of temperature, heightened emotions
