How To Use Shampoo Massage Brush

A shampoo massage brush can be an easy and effective way to boost your hair’s health by stimulating blood flow to the scalp and strengthening the roots of your hair, causing healthier growth overall. These are exactly the type of benefits you can expect from using this simple device regularly, but it can be hard to use if you don’t know how to use it properly! That’s why we put together this step-by-step guide on how to use a shampoo massage brush so that you know exactly what to do when you next use yours.

1) Get rid of tangles with your fingers
Before applying your shampoo, make sure to spread some through your hair with your fingers. This will get rid of any tangles and ensure that you’re evenly distributing your lather. It’s important that you don’t just apply it from root to tip, though—your hair is much more porous at the roots, so if you start there, it can soak up more product than necessary. Start at one end of your scalp and work your way up using small circles. (Think: tracing along a clock face.) If you have thinner or fine hair, avoid rubbing too hard or going in large circles—you could end up tugging at strands without even realizing it!

2) Shake the hair, don’t rub it
Though it may sound silly, try combing your hair with a wide-toothed comb before you wet it. This is especially helpful if you have long or thick hair, which tangles easily and often becomes knotted during washing. If you already have wet hair, gently tug at sections of your hair in an upwards motion while also running your fingers down each strand as you go. You’ll be sure to see fewer breakage (and split ends!) after making a habit out of doing so.

3) Brush, don’t pull
Don’t pull at your hair while shampooing. It can lead to hair breakage and further damage your scalp. Instead, gently brush your scalp in circular motions with the lather of your favorite shampoo. Be sure not to scratch or scrub too hard as you’ll likely be doing more harm than good. Once you feel like all of your hair is sufficiently covered by lather, it’s time for step two!

4) Start at the ends and move up
The purpose of using a hair shampoo brush is not only for cleaning your hair. When you are applying shampoo to your hair, it is usually done from root to tip of your hair strands. Instead, try starting at your ends and work your way up towards the scalp by scrubbing each strand. You can be gentle or firm when you move upwards as long as you cover every inch of each strand with lather. Once you reach near your scalp and any areas that feel dry, stop there and rinse off any excess foam. Then, move back down from root to tip until all of your hair is clean! This will ensure that every single strand gets cleaned properly and won’t leave behind any leftover dirt or oiliness!

5) Comb while brushing with the same tool
The best way to wash hair with an electric shampoo massager is by combing your wet hair before washing it with your chosen shampoo. This will help you get rid of tangles and knots. For those of you who have dry and brittle hair, there’s no need for concern about breaking or pulling any strands out. It’s important that you simply run your fingers gently through all areas of your head so that all knots can be removed from hard-to-reach areas like behind your ears, in your nape, and near where you scalp meets your forehead. Remember that you shouldn’t force anything but simply move very slowly while also making sure not to miss any spots as well.

6) Gently tease curls out with fingers
At first, it may seem counterintuitive to use your fingers to gently tease your curls out instead of a hairbrush. But for those with curly hair, finger detangling is an essential way to avoid breakage and promote healthy hair growth. Simply run your fingers from root to tip; starting at your scalp will give you an easier time of it, but it’s not necessary. Just remember: A little goes a long way here. Otherwise, you’re just tugging at your curls!

7) Turn upside down and massage
Turn your head upside down and thoroughly massage your scalp with fingertips, being sure to cover each area from root to tip. This will help stimulate blood flow and circulation throughout your scalp, which may promote faster hair growth. This can also be done when you are in a shower so that the water helps create a lather in addition to massaging. Be sure not to get shampoo into your eyes as it can sting and burn! To rinse out properly, simply flip back upright and take long strokes against skin as opposed to tousling hair around or grasping onto strands, especially if using conditioner (the friction against skin will cause it wash off). Rinse completely with water.

8) Rinse well with warm water
Never rinse your hair with cold water. It will cause your hair cuticles to shrink, which will make it difficult for products to penetrate and leave behind a buildup of residue. Instead, rinse with warm water and apply conditioner only after you’ve rinsed out all product in order to give yourself maximum slip. Conditioning while rinsing allows you to spread out and maximize your conditioner usage. Squeeze excess water out of your hair before applying products, as over saturated hair won’t absorb any more. Using two handfuls of (preferably) lukewarm water can help give you more slip and ensure that your application is even from root-to-tip.

9) Follow up with a conditioner or let your hair air dry
Using a conditioner is more important than you might think: If you have dry hair, they can be an absolute necessity. However, even if your hair isn’t naturally dry, there’s still plenty of benefit to be had by using them regularly. Shampooing strips away natural oils that are important for healthy hair and skin—conditioners work to replace those oils and balance out pH levels in your scalp. There are several ways to go about it—many of them involve simply applying conditioner from root to tip and rinsing with warm water before proceeding with your regular shower regimen. Regardless of which method you go with, it’s recommended that you condition your hair at least once per week in order to maintain healthy locks.

Final Word
A lot of users tend to complain about their hair falling out after using massaging brushes. That is why it is important to make sure that you do not overdo it while washing your hair. If you are still unsure, consider consulting your doctor before starting with these devices. A doctor will be able to tell you more about the devices and recommend ways in which they can be used without causing damage. The most important thing is to make sure that you get something which will cause minimal pressure or friction when you apply it. You can even get help from online forums and websites that explain in detail how best these devices should be used so as not to cause any damage or harm in any way.
