Have you heard of a scalp brush?

Simply put, it’s a small handheld brush that has soft silicone bristles that you use when washing your hair.

So what are the benefits of a scalp brush and why should you be using one?

VIP Magazine sat down with Trichologist and Stylist Clare Devereux who shared why you should have one in your bathroom.

”There are a few benefits to a scalp brush and they are becoming more popular. It is a tool designed specifically for massaging and exfoliating the scalp. Used correctly they can definitely help get a better wash on your hair,” she explains.

How to use a scalp brush

”You should use the brush while applying shampoo or scalp treatments can help distribute the product more evenly and ensure better absorption, maximising their effectiveness,” Claire tells VIP Magazine.

”When using the brush, it’s important to be gentle and avoid applying too much pressure. Start with light strokes and gradually increase the pressure as needed, but always listen to your scalp and adjust accordingly.”

The benefits of using a scalp brush

Improve circulation

”The bristles of the brush stimulate blood flow to the scalp, promoting healthier hair growth. Increased circulation brings more oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles, which can result in stronger and healthier hair.”


”The gentle exfoliating action of the brush helps to remove dead skin cells, excess oil, and product buildup from the scalp. This can alleviate itching, reduce dandruff, and create a cleaner environment for hair growth.”

Stress relief

”Massaging the scalp with a brush can be relaxing and therapeutic. It can help relieve tension and stress, providing a soothing sensation.”
