Showering has always been a bit of a project for me. I’ve had long, curly (read: knot-prone) hair basically my entire life and comb it through with conditioner while showering instead of once I’m dried off. So, it’s always been more of a neck-breaking hassle than a time to soak up the steam and relax. But this cheap Amazon scalp massager gave me something to look forward to.
It’s equipped with an easy-to-hold handle and soft, uneven, thick silicone bristles. Scrubbing with it not only gives your head a deep clean, but it also promotes blood flow to your scalp, which can strengthen your roots and even alleviate hair loss. You can apparently use it on dry or wet hair no matter your hair type (or even use it exclusively to destress), but I’m married to using it when I shampoo.
I’ve been using the massager for a few months and am very much a believer in its magic. First and foremost, it feels freakin’ *amazing* on your scalp. The best comparison I can think of is cleaning your ears with a cotton swab; it’s like the skin is so rarely touched that once it is, it’s inexplicably soothing and gratifying. It’s similar to the intense wash you get at the salon before a haircut, only times 100.
