What is a Scalp Brush?

In recent years the scalp brush has seen a large increase in popularity and demand, due to being effective at ensuring a healthy scalp. There can be quite the difference between different scalp brushes, so it is important to choose the best one for your scalp and hair. So in this article, we will teach you all you need to know.

Selecting the Right Scalp Brush

Before you can learn how to use a scalp brush you have to find the right one. One of the first things to look out for includes the bristle types, as you want ones that are gently but also effective at the same time. This is in order to ensure that your scalp is not irritated, but instead invigorated by the massage.

It is also essential to consider which concerns you have when it comes to your scalp, and your hair in general. Some scalp brushes work better for dry scalps, while some are great for oily scalps. The same goes for your hair type. Some scalp brushes might be better suited for curly or wavy hair, while others tend to perform better with straight hair.

Another thing to look for is what type of materials have been used. In our modern day and age it is great to pick one that is made by eco-friendly materials, such as silicone and biodegradable plastics for instance.

You should also consider the handle or grip, as an ergonomic design will help you apply the correct amount of pressure, not tire your wrist or hand needlessly, and thus be a more practical option overall.

How To Use a Scalp Brush?

Using a scalp brush is not difficult, and only takes a few moments to master. While there are many brushes out there, we will cover how to use our very own RKT Scalp Brush.

  • Ensure your hair is dry, as this will result in a smoother movement across the scalp and avoid your hair tangling.

  • If your hair is long, curly or thick, you might get better results by first dividing your hair into sections.

  • Consider applying our RKT Scalp Conditioner before you exfoliate, as this can provide even better results.

  • Grasp your brush firmly and ensure that your grip is comfortable.

  • Start massaging your scalp while using a constant and gentle pressure, taking care to move the scalp brush in a circular motion.

  • Continue massaging for around 5-10 minutes, and pay extra attention to areas with concerns such as excessive dryness or oiliness.

  • Once you are done, you can rinse or otherwise clean the scalp brush so it is ready to be used again the next time you need it.
