How to Scalp Massage using Kansa Comb

If you're looking for a natural and effective way to improve your scalp and hair health, Kansa comb massage might be just what you need. Kansa is a type of bronze that is known for its therapeutic properties. It's been used in Ayurveda, the traditional medicine system of India, for centuries to balance the body's energy and promote overall wellness.


Start by preparing your scalp for the massage. This can be done by brushing your hair to remove any tangles or knots. You may also want to apply a small amount of oil to your scalp and hair, which can help nourish and moisturize your scalp.

Hold the Kansa comb in your dominant hand, with the smooth side facing your scalp. The teeth of the comb should be pointing towards the back.

Scalp Massage: 

  1. Starting with the crown chakra, begin by gently pressing the Kansa comb against your scalp, starting at the front of your head and working your way towards the back. Use a light, circular motion to massage your scalp, moving the comb in small, circular motions. Be sure to cover your entire scalp. As you massage, you may feel a slight tingling or warming sensation on your scalp. This is normal and is a sign that the Kansa comb is working to stimulate blood flow and promote healing.
  2. Include the sides and the back of your head by placing the Kansa comb at the base of your scalp, near the nape of your neck. Using gentle pressure, slowly comb through your hair towards the crown of your head. Repeat this motion several times covering both sides, and moving the comb a little higher with each stroke, until you reach the top of your head.
  3. You can adjust the pressure of the massage to suit your comfort level. Some people prefer a gentle massage, while others prefer a firmer pressure. Experiment to see what works best for you. Continue massaging your scalp for 5-10 minutes, or longer if you have time. After you've massaged your scalp, you can use the Kansa comb to massage your hair. Start at the roots and work your way towards the ends of your hair, using gentle strokes to avoid tangles.

You can use the Kansa comb as often as you like, but it's recommended to use it at least once a day for maximum benefits.

After you've finished massaging your scalp, you can brush your hair again to remove any loosened dead skin cells or debris. You may also want to rinse your hair and scalp with water to remove any excess oil.

Tips for using a Kansa comb for scalp massage:

  1. Be gentle. While the Kansa comb  can be used to apply pressure to the scalp, it's important to avoid using too much force. Be gentle and use a light touch to avoid causing discomfort or irritation.
  2. Use a high-quality Kansa comb. There are many different types of Kansa combs available, so be sure to choose one that is made from high-quality materials and is designed specifically for scalp massage.
  3. Practice regularly. The more you use the Kansa comb, the more benefits you are likely to see. Try to incorporate a scalp massage into your regular self-care routine for the best results.

Overall, using a Kansa comb  for scalp massage can be a relaxing and beneficial practice. By stimulating blood flow and promoting healing, this traditional Ayurvedic tool can help improve the health of your scalp and promote healthy hair growth.


Over centuries, the practice of Ayurvedic wellness has proven to result in a more rejuvenated body, mind and spirit, thus nurturing mindfulness and stronger immunity.
