Scalp brushes you need to add to your shower shelf stat
An irritated, itchy or flaky scalp is never fun, but when you exit the shower after shampooing ready for relief and you still feel the pesky signs of a congested scalp? That's a unique brand of annoyance.
And while there are plenty of bh-approved hacks for caring for your scalp and ditching dandruff, sometimes it's time to call something stronger than a clarifying shampoo.
Now, if your scalp is overly irritated, sore or broken, we do recommend you stick to the more classic scalp-clearing hacks, but if you're confident that the cause of the itchiness lies is dryness or congestion, then your scalp could probably do with a good scrub.
Enter scalp brushes. By adding a scalp brush to your shower shelf you can ensure your shampoo gets right down into the dirt (nice, right?), clearing away all the debris and dead skin sitting on your scalp. The bristles also mean it takes on an exfoliating role, too, able to also physically help to clear away any nasty stuff.
Not only does it take care of the clearing portion, a scalp brush will also work to enhance blood circulation, stimulate hair growth and ensure your in-shower products are distributed evenly, instead of sitting in one section of the scalp.
Think about it; you probably spend a lot more time massaging shampoo into the top of your scalp (where you can visibly see the oil and dry shampoo buildup), but seeing as the middle and bottom areas of your scalp actually hold the most sweat and their share of dead skin, you'll want to make sure your products get in there too.
And lastly, it feels damn delightful. You know that euphoric feeling when your hairdresser treats you to a post-rinse scalp massage? This is that, but on your own terms. Ideal.
The process is simple; just apply your shampoo, conditioner, or whatever product you're going in with, then use your scalp brush to gently massage your head for three to five minutes. Happy scrubbing.
