And I’m not going to sugarcoat the fact that I had pretty low expectations. I’d tried a silicone scalp massager once before, but to be totally honest, it was kind of stiff and it hurt my head. After a few attempts at massages in the shower, I gave up and relegated the tool to the back of my bathroom cabinet.
But when I lathered up my shampoo with Vegamour’s version, I was totally floored: It felt like I was getting one of my hairdresser’s legendary scalp massages. I used it every night that week to see if the scalp massager felt as amazing with regular use (spoiler alert: It did), and it’s since become a staple in my nighttime shower routine.
The bristles on Vegamour’s massager are made from soft, flexible silicone, so they bend to accommodate the curves of your head (you know, rather than poking your delicate scalp). When you move the tool in circular motions, it feels like someone’s fingertips are gently rubbing your scalp. Plus, it’s really comfortable to hold. When you slip your fingers through the top of the tool, you’ll find special grooves that form to the shape of your hand.
Beyond making me feel incredible, it turns out this massager has some pretty impressive benefits. As the bristles stimulate the scalp, they’re also boosting circulation to the area, which can promote hair growth. Plus, the device helps to really work your shampoo into the depths of your scalp, something I’ve always struggled with. Yup, including that kinda tricky-to-reach area where your head meets your neck.
If you’re really looking to promote thicker, healthier hair, I’d recommend pairing the scalp massager with Vegamour’s Gro Hair Serum, a plant-based formula that’s been clinically proven to reduce shedding and improve the appearance of thinning hair. Just want a clean-feeling scalp? Use your massager with the Gro Scalp Detoxifying Serum instead. It’s formulated with silk protein to reduce oil production and promote a healthy scalp.
The only downside to owning this scalp massager? If your partner is anything like mine, they’ll totally hog it once they experience the soothing sensation. But at $18, you don’t have to feel guilty about asking them to (kindly) get their own.
