Is finding a good hair brush a game changer? It is once you find it. Otherwise, you're left in the gray area of not knowing what you don't know. A ho-hum hair tool that gets the job done (mostly) and doesn't cost an arm and a leg can pass for good enough, until you're met with a truly remarkable set of bristles. In the case of over 22,000 Amazon reviews, that came in the form of the Heeta Scalp Care Hair Brush (BUY: $5.47;

It's not your average long-handled hair tamer. The Heeta Scalp Care Hair Brush fits in the palm of your hand, with a nob that fits between fingers to keep it secure. The silicone brush head is waterproof, which makes it ideal for an in-shower deep scalp massage. Reviewers claim the soft nodules will save your manicure, and also reach through thick strands that otherwise can inhibit giving the scalp a good scrub.

Proper scalp care is integral to reducing hair shed, decreasing product build up, and promoting new hair growth. It can also help reduce itch and dandruff. Many of us completely skip over this important step and don't know what we're missing. Some Amazon reviewers claim the same, with one writing, "I love this thing! I've had it in my shopping cart for a while, but kept putting it off because it's not something you NEED, but I finally caved and bought it. It works so well! My scalp feels so clean! Plus my nail polish always seems to chip while shampooing with just my fingers, but this eliminates that problem!"

The brush is suitable for a variety of hair types and textures, though an overwhelming number of curly-haired reviewers have written in singing its praises. It can be used on both wet or dry hair, but it seems an in-shower scalp massage while shampooing is where you might see the most bang for your buck. You can also use it to work in a moisturizing mask or gently detangle.

If you're a frequenter of any type of hair product, but especially of scalp-clinging dry shampoo, a scalp scrub should be part of your cleansing routine, the frequency of which is dependent on your hair type, product usage, and typical washing schedule.
