It's no secret that massaging your scalp stimulates hair growth through increased blood circulation and superior scalp health. ( For more scalp health info read about the WOW method)
Still though, massaging ANYTHING with your hands for more than a couple minutes can getting tiring, can cause hand cramping and if you have arthritis (or 'Arthur' as my mama used to say).... forget about it!
It has soft vibrating tips that deep massage your scalp, it's waterproof for use in the shower or bath. You'll experience the benefits of enhanced cleaning to help your hair grow out faster.
In my opinion, massaging your scalp should be a part of everyone's weekly routine. I've noticed that I remember to keep up with my routines when I've invested in things that give me quicker results and help me do less work.
Yeah, I'm lazy & triflin' SOMETIMES, haa! But honestly, this is not just about being lazy, the type of massage you get from this scalp massage brush is lot more thorough and quicker without tiring your hands out. It just makes sense.
The Vitagoods scalp invigorating massage brush works with batteries and has an ON/OFF button to crank up the massage vibrations.
Naptural85 used this after her deep conditioning session and loved it, and now she uses it every time she co-washes her hair.
She says that her scalp feels so much cleaner since using the massage brush and she is really a big fan, you can tell because she uses it so much that the name of the product is wearing off, you can hardly see the letters anymore, lol!
And remember that this Vitagoods scalp massage brush is powerfully efficient, you don't need to grind away with your hands. You can think of it much the way you'd think of an electric toothbrush, you don't want to put tons of pressure on it, just apply it with light pressure and let it do it's job.
Benefits of Blood Circulation On Your Scalp
The deep massage you get from this massage brush greatly increase your circulation. But why is that important? Well... Circulation determines the flow of oxygen into the scalp, your follicles need this for healthy, steady hair growth. You can give your scalp a boost in circulation by massaging it.
One way scalp massaging increases blood circulation is by warming the vessels. This makes the roots stronger, which helps slow or stop excessive shedding beyond the normal or average hundred strands a day.
Massaging also reduces stress hormones that interfere with the your hair growth cycle. When your stress hormones are raging, your body compensates and doesn’t run as efficiently. This means your body will use the water and food you consume to keep your vital organs operating; your hair, skin and nails are last on your body’s priority list of nutrient distribution and suffer the ugly consequences. The Vitagoods scalp massage brush helps you massage your scalp to superior health and promotes a scalp condition that is ready for hair growth.

OK, if you are looking for proven hair growth recipes then you are going to want to KISS ME after this!
Let me introduce you to this video from Curly Proverbz showing her unique Super Hair Growth Oil DIY recipe with Before and After footage.
Over the years she has tried and tested so many oils and ingredients with reasonable success in growing her hair faster than its usual pace. In the past, she used gro aut oilwith great success and got 2 inches of growth in 8 weeks! She made up her own version of the oil with additional ingredients that she feels improved the formula. If you are looking for fast hair growth, whether your hair's natural or processed this is the video for you. (Learn to transition to Natural in 7 steps here...)
INSTRUCTIONS: Carefully add all of your ingredients to a glass jar and mix well. When you want to use your oil just add what you need to an applicator bottle. Curly Proverbz makes it very clear that you should not use your mix beyond four weeks.
It allows you to straight kinky/curly hair without the high heat of professional-level flat irons. There had been a ton of Tweets and Facebook posts in different Black Hair Groups about the new miracle hair tool.
But there was one big problem....
The $300 PRICE TAG!!!
Like many others at the time, I wasn't dropping no dang $300 for it.
But all y'all that was complaining right along with me will be hyped up that 10 months later the price has dropped to less than $200! And that's FROM DAFNI (the real manufacturer), be careful of people selling knockoff fakes.
I say to be careful of the fakes and knockoff brands because there are TONS of them out now after the success of Dafni's Brush. The DAFNI company is the originator of this beloved "hair straightening ceramic brush", some have bought fakes and been very upset about it.
But anyway, the idea of the Dafni brush is similar to any other straightening tool - you slowly run the hot ceramic through your hair and it gets rid of any waves or kinks.
What DAFNI claims makes their product better than competitors is that it has more surface area than the traditional straightener, which means that your hair could be done in as little as two minutes. Plus since it's already a brush, the hair wouldn't get tangled.
The Dafni Brush at work on Kinky/Curly Natural Hair!
Here is a popular video from a Facebook user named Kimberley Satterwhite, she posted her first experience using it and she thought you might like that we share it with you right here. See the video below.
Be honest, what do you think of the results?
Given the texture of the little girl’s hair that it was demonstrated on, do you think this will work for your texture?
Here's Kimberly's (the mom) Comment From Her Video Post:
Sometimes things look so good you have to think, "That just can't be!" And "It's just too good to be true!" Like how I earn 6 figures as a stay at home mom. I just say, "Let's just Try it & see"! I understand how it feels to be a total skeptic of something! So I'm going to try out the 'Dafni Ceramic Straightening Brush'. DOES IT WORK?! You can see for yourself IF In Fact IT Works or not?! This takes the place of flat ironing and saves you MAJOR TIME! I am TOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!
NOTE: I was so excited to use this i didn't wash my daughters hair. She does have GEL in her hair i just ran it through really quick to test it. Imagine this on her CLEAN hair! WOW. I'm very happy with this product! (Get Hair Growth Tips from BlackHairOMG's Email Tipline)
Just to prep you for the video a bit, just know that Teaundra straightens her hair only once a year if that just to switch things up every once in a while and no heat any other time.
She has been natural since 2008, she has had amazing hair growth over the years after going natural and the techniques she shows in the video are the same as what she always does when she washes her hair. She starts off showing you her GO TO pre-poo product, which is Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Conditioner.

Top 10 Highest-Rated Shea Butters
If you've been in the natural hair community for any amount of time, it will come as no surprise to you that Shea Butter is one of the most beloved and useful natural hair products on the planet.
So I'd be an idiot not to give you the top 10 highest rated shea butters online.
Shea Butter provides moisture to dry or damaged hair from the roots to the very tips, repairs and protects your hair against weather damage, dryness and brittleness. It also absorbs quickly and completely into the scalp to rehydrate without clogging your pores. It is especially helpful for processed and heat-treated hair. It's a go-to treatment for dry scalp problems and it brings life and luster to damaged hair.
I personally have used it for years and years and years on my skin (I was born in 1977). And believe me, my skin shows great results now from years of keeping my face moisturized every morning. Shea Butter is like food for the skin containing Vitamins A, E and F. These vitamins fight against wrinkles and facial lines.

Batiste dry shampoo is a big-time best seller on Amazon, many naturals are getting into dry shampoo into or to avoid wetting their hair too much.

Water only hair washing for natural hair?
It sounds so "crazy" but it just might work! In fact TONS of long-haired natural beauties claim that it works WONDERS! Water only washing (also known as the WOW method and WOHW method) is the practice of water rinsing (washing) your natural hair frequently with warm/hot water and zero commercial hair products.
This method goes a lot further than cowashing ( washing hair with conditioner ). The purpose of washing hair with water only is to allow your natural sebaceous glands to produce the natural occurring sebum, your natural sebum nourishes, moisturizes and protects your hair follicles and scalp. You want to achieve Total Sebum Coverage.
Your natural sebaceous oils also work to help your scalp maintain a healthy pH level and protect it from nasty fungi and infections. Your natural sebaceous oils were created to be the perfect moisturizer and hair conditioner.
The majority of women that have tried the water only hair washing method on a consistent basis and followed the directions specifically, absolutely love washing hair with just water and what has happened to their overall hair health.
As with any new method you try, there will be a transitioning period before your hair adjusts to the WOHW method, and there's also that issue of how long it takes some women to mentally to adjust.
Transitioning can take anywhere from 6-12 weeks, I know that seems like a long of time, and maybe it is for some ladies. But, the key to success is to be “patient” and let nature take its course, raving fans of the WOHW method claim that it will definitely pay off in the end.
The water only hair washing method of is actually pretty simple.
To begin the process, you will have to clarify your hair and scalp of any previous products and build up with a clarifying shampoo (herbal or regular both will work).
Even though using a commercial clarifying shampoo will work, it's suggested that in the beginning of this method you try for the most natural products ( like apple cider vinegar shampoo ) to clarify your hair and scalp with.
All herbs can be used by themselves or together. Make sure you've thoroughly detangled your natural hair either before or after you have clarified with your wash.
Once you have clarified your hair, pick a style; two strand twists (medium to large size) are highly recommended for naturals who have type 3c-4c hair (in other words, afro textured or kinky, coily, cottony-textured hair).
Putting your hair in two-strand twists will make the transitioning period go much smoother than if you decided to do the water only hair washing on loose natural hair. Flat twists or braids are also good alternatives hairstyle as well.
The following section is a quick jump-start instruction list, that'll break down and explain how to do Water Only Hair Washing:
Quick Jump Start Into The Water Only Hair Washing - WOHW Method!
Step 1: Clarify your natural hair (use any clarifying shampoo or herb you like) and detangle your hair.
Step 2: Put your hair in medium to large two-strand twists.
Step 3: Massage your scalp daily for a minimum of 5 minutes.
Step 4: Start the rinsing process daily.
Step 5: Pay attention for when you start to recognize a oily or greasy feeling on your hair; usually the first few inches of hair will have the “oily/greasy” natural sebaceous oils and you'll a slight sheen on your fingertips after massaging your scalp.
Step 6: When you start noticing your natural sebaceous oils, start preening the sebum down your hair strands daily.
Step 7: Once your sebum comes in, it’s time to start scritching your scalp daily, so that you don't get build up of sebum sitting on your scalp. These steps need to be done daily or almost daily until you have reached Total Sebum Coverage. Once you have Total Sebum Coverage throughout your natural hair, you can begin making your twists smaller or wear your hair loose.
IF NEEDED, It's strongly recommended that you use a natural oil or butter to supplement your hair.
It's important to avoid to avoid all products that are not plant/food-based, as most commercial products will absolutely strip your hair’s natural sebaceous oils and slow your Water Only Hair Washing transition greatly.
Maintenance on The Water Only Hair Washing Method For Natural Hair
On the Water Only Hair Washing Method you'll need daily, weekly and monthly maintenance. Starting with the first step; CLARIFYING. As your hair's sebum continues to be produced, you'll have to remove the excess sebum from your hair every so many weeks or months; it really depends on how much sebum your scalp produces.
In time you will find out, but, if you produce low-levels of sebum, this means that you can go longer before you have to clarify again in order to remove the excess sebum. If you are a normal to high sebum producer, this means you have to clarify/ remove the excess sebum/debris more often. During the process of removing the excess sebum, you are never stripping your hair bare.
How to know when it's time to remove excess sebum:
1. Your hair has become stickier, oilier than normal.
2. There is a grayish film on your hair.
3. Your hair has begun to break at the ends.
4. Your scalp appears to have a sheet of dandruff (it's not actually dandruff, it's dried sebum) and has become itchy.
These are the most common signs that you need to clarify your hair of excess natural sebaceous oils. It's highly recommended to figure out your hair cycle in terms of; for example: If you have noticed that you can usually go 2 months before clarifying your hair, then instead of waiting 8 weeks to clarify, do it on the 7th week.
That way you won’t have to deal with the issues that come with allowing excess sebum to form on your scalp.
What Do I Use When It’s Time To Clarify?
When you clarify your hair on the Water Only Hair Washing method, it's best to choose an all-natural shampoo or conditioner that won't strip your your hair and scalp of it's naturally produced sebum.
Fortunately for you, there are many different herbal powders that can be whipped into conditioner and that will successfully clean your hair of the excess sebum without completely stripping it. For example... Amla ( Gooseberry), Aretha Powder (Soap Nut), Cassia, Henna, Shikakai Powder etc…
Make sure to look for a natural plant/food-based product to make your conditioner or shampoo from (they prevent total sebum stripping). Many naturals find that a more holistic and natural approach is best with the Water Only Washing method.

Here are a few BlackHairOMG approved instructional videos on the Water Only Hair Washing (AKA WOW method - WOHW method).
If you're having a problem with brittle and dry air this video of the best natural hair products will be EXACTLY what you need.

Natural Hair Products That Gave Regal Fro THE BOMB Hair!
After you watch the video, you'll probably be checking for some of the highlighted products, so here is the list. BUT, watch her vid, because we didn't include some of the actual hair tools that she like to use to this list. Anyway, here's her favorite natural hair products.
The only thing we didn't think was that great was the choice of flat iron. The Remington flat iron is a flat iron for people who have never used a top-tier flat iron and are looking for something cheap. Nothing wrong with that, it cost so little money that you really can't complain. But if you are looking for much better flat ironing and curling results, it may be wise to invest in a hair tool that is made for ultimate performance and that will last for a long time.
Be sure to support Regal Fro's YouTube channel for natural hair tips, we think that her natural hair Youtube channel is one of the most informative and she definitely deserves more naturals following her vids.
