So how does it work? Healthline explains, “According to research, scalp massage increases hair thickness by stretching the cells of hair follicles. This, in turn, stimulates the follicles to produce thicker hair. It’s also thought that a scalp massage may help dilate blood vessels beneath the skin, thereby encouraging hair growth.” After a study in 2016, researchers concluded that, “Hair thickness was shown to increase with standardized scalp massage.”

“It’s great,” one five-star reviewer explained. “I have been messaging my scalp for about 15 to 20 minutes before bed 4 times a week for about a month and it has made a huge difference I’ve noticed a lot of new growth in my hair. Also dont know if it’s just me but the day I massage my scalp I feel like I sleep better.”

Another shopper wrote, “I love love love this scalp brush. I had an itchy scalp and by scratching I ended up damaging my scalp which then made the itchy feeling worse. I use this to brush the scalp before showering, then I use it to lather the shampoo into the scalp, and then I use it to wash it all out. I no longer damage my scalp with my fingernails. I saw changes within the first day of using it, and it took about a two in a half weeks to see lasting results. I also have hair growth along the hairline since I’m not damaging my scalp anymore. Plus it just feels great!!!!! I’m debating on getting another one to speed up the process since I have lots of hair and it just takes a while to work this throughout the scalp.”
