No, you’re not imagining it: Scalp care is trending. It seems that every hair care brand now has a scalp oil or scrub promising a flake-free dome and faster hair growth. You’ve likely also seen one of those spiky palm-sized brushes that, we assure you, feel much better on your head than they look.
These buzzy little brushes are called scalp massagers, and that’s exactly what they do: massage your scalp. Most commonly used in the shower, a scalp massager is a nice addition to your hair washing routine because the bristles are quite adept at dislodging product build up (in our case, a can’s worth of dry shampoo)and dead skin cells (yum). And quite frankly, they’re the closest thing we’ve gotten to a proper massage in a while, so there’s that.
