From tightly coiled and curly to fine long hair, there's a shampoo brush to help everyone achieve a healthy clean scalp and luscious clean locks.

Choose a shampoo brush with silicone bristles for a relaxing hair washing session in the shower. The long and triangular-shaped bristles are flexible enough for you to easily lather up your shampoo and clean your hair from root to tip. The soft tips will gently exfoliate your scalp, removing the build-up of oils, dead skin and other pollutants, but stiff enough to provide a firm stress-relieving head massage.
The majority of shampoo brushes will have silicone bristles as they really are the best all-round option and, being mildew-resistant, they are the most hygienic choice too. For a cheaper option choose one with plastic bristles. However, these are longer and sharper, so be wary of potentially scratching your scalp, especially if it's delicate.
Get rid of itchy flakes by using your shampoo brush with one of our favourite anti-dandruff shampoos.
Ergonomically designed to fit in the palm of your hand, the majority of shampoo brushes are circular and contoured, making them easy to grip and use, especially when they are wet! If you are worried about the brush slipping out of your hand, choose a brush with anti-slip grooves and a mouse-like hold - even better if it has a knob or a strap that you can slip your hand through.
Looking to really indulge? Treat yourself to the ultimate head spa at home with an electric shampoo brush. These brushes take the elbow grease out of scrubbing and can provide varying levels of pressure from a relaxing and therapeutic head massage to a more invigorating level, to really increase blood circulation to the scalp and stimulate hair growth.

Once your hair is wet and you have applied your hair products, take the brush and use small circular motions whilst applying a little pressure to your scalp. To ensure that all of your hair and scalp are clean, use for about 3 to 5 minutes to cover your whole head or until you are satisfied with the massage.
This will depend on your hair routine and the products you use. If you use dry shampoo or other styling products, you may prefer to use it every time you wash your hair to keep follicles clear of stubborn build-up. You can use it daily, or as little as once a week for an indulgent treat for your hair and scalp.
After each use, remove any hair that has been caught in the bristles and rinse it well to avoid mildew and fungi growing. Once clean, leave the shampoo brush to dry naturally, ready to be used for the next time you wash your hair.
