Shampoo brush

There are some things like a shampoo brush that you may have never known existed. But once you have tried them you may become addicted to using one. Once you try one it could very well inevitably become part of your hair care regimen. This handy brush can make your hair washing much easier. It's goal is to cut down on your hair washing time and gives your scalp a relaxing massage while thoroughly cleaning.

Shampoo brush

What is a shampoo brush? Shampooing hair using your fingertips and nails may not be ideal. Especially if you have long nails you run the risk of scratching your scalp. Plus your fingers and nails often don’t remove all the dirt and debris from the surface of your scalp. A shampoo massage brush purpose is to replacing your fingertips making shampooing easier and more efficient. It's used to work the shampoo evenly through your hair and clean your hair and scalp thoroughly while giving a good, satisfying scrub and massage to your scalp.

What is a scalp brush used for?

A scalp massage brush or a scalp scrubber is a scalp brush that can be used to easily apply to your scalp products and treatments. It's bristles that help stimulate the scalp and distribute the product to deliver better results.

Are shampoo brushes bad for your hair?

The simple answer is no. When used correctly, your hair should not be pulled out by a scalp massaging shampoo brush. The soft rubber bristles are specifically designed to avoid tangling and pulling while the hair is detached and the scalp massaged. However it's tricky for folks with longer hair. It's ideal for people with short hair.

Does a shampoo brush help with dandruff?

A scalp scrubber cleans the dandruff scalp and scrubs the dead skin cells away, keeping the scalp free of flakes. If you use it with a scalp massaging brush, your dandruff shampoo will be more effective. There are also claims that a scrubber helps spread natural oils and reduces the flakiness of the dry scalp, but I don't' see how that is true since the shampoo would just dissolve the oils. So I'm not sure how effective that claim really is. But I mention it here in hopes someone may make a comment as to it's effectiveness.

Why you need a shampoo brush?

A hair shampoo brush works the shampoo into the scalp and evenly distributes it through your hair while increasing the lather. If you have lots of hair, this allows you to get the shampoo all over your hair not just in one spot thus you get a more through cleaning with minimum shampoo.

The comfortable massaging sensation is reason alone to get one. A shampoo brush provides a great scalp massage while shampooing your hair thus you get two benefits at once. Many people enjoy the tingly and stimulating sensation when using it. Once you start you will find it hard to stop washing your hair.

And as mentioned above it cleans thoroughly. A scalp massaging shampoo brush offers a deep wash, cleaning of your scalp. Using one is so much better and faster than your fingers and hands. It can reach deeper into your hair plus it covers a larger surface area of your scalp than using just your hands. I find I only cover a very small area with my fingers as compared to using a shampoo bush. It easily removes dirt, dead skin cells and traces of other buildup, leaving your hair and scalp veryy clean.

Rubbing stimulates the nerves in the scalp area during a scalp massage, helping to relieve tension and soothe headaches. The shampoo brush leaves the feeling of the scalp refreshed, particularly after using a shampoo that invigorates the scalp.

Do scalp massages help hair growth?

There are claims that scalp massage improves blood flow to the scalp, bringing more oxygen and nutrients to the roots of your hair. Some professional hairstylists think scalp massage may stimulate hair follicles and enhance their hair growth ability. According to the American Hair Loss Association, about 40% of Americans with hair loss are women. So you may want to try. You can read more on the treatments and research for hair loss here, "Hair Loss Research". Also another study says, "Standardized Scalp Massage Results in Increased Hair Thickness". The objective of this study was to assess the effect of scalp massage on hair in Japanese males and the effect of stretching forces in vitro on human dermal papilla cells. A study in the January 2016 issue shows that just four minutes a day of scalp massage increases activity among genes known to promote hair growth, and dials down the activity of hair loss and inflammation-related genes. Moreover, participants in the study also noted an improvement in hair thickness. Soft scalp massaging can increase blood flow to the hair follicle, the hair root that is the only living part of the hair.

A shampoo bush is tricky for long hair

It's a must-have tool for short-haired people, as it works really good. But for longer hair the tool is very hard to use and in dense or curly hair, as it can get tangled. In long straight hair it works a little better and has less of a tendency to get tangled than when used on long curly hair. A shampoo brush really excels on short coarse hair. It also works perfectly on men’s short hair.

Shampoo brush tips

It is possible to do scalp massage for hair growth while shampooing in the shower. For at least three minutes, you should aim. Some people like aromatherapy to be included. Relaxing shampoo scents like lavender and revitalizing scents like eucalyptus or mint will increase the circulatory boost.

A good shampoo brush has bristles that are firm enough to scrub well, but still soft and flexible to prevent your scalp from hurting. Scalp silicone shampoo scrubbers are good alternatives to rigid plastic scrubbers. Semi-hard brushes on the scalp are softer than plastic brushes and are effective.

How to use a shampoo brush

Gently massage your scalp with the brush for 3-5 minutes after applying shampoo to your wet hair. Be sure to work in small circular movements. Keep massaging to cover every area of your scalp to spread the lather around. Rinse to wash the shampoo thoroughly off your scalp and hair, using the brush again. Don't push too hard with the brush, especially if your skin is sensitive. It doesn't take much pressure to get clean hair and a good massage. If you have long hair, then you want to make sure to detangle before showering because this will help minimize tangling and also make it easier for the shampoo brush.
