Luxe Therapy Scalp Soother Review

Luxe Therapy Scalp Soother Review (2) - Longing 4 Length

I was first introduced to this handy and unique tool during the six week trial run of new daytime talk show, The Real.  One of the co-hosts, comedienne Loni Love, spoke about this cross between a curved comb and pick and demonstrated how well it reached her scalp beneath her sew in weave.  She hilariously scratched her head while Tamar Braxton rolled her eyes and called it ghetto.  Well, my interest was piqued and since I’ve been wearing a weaves and wigs to protect and grow my hair, I figured now would be the perfect time to order my Luxe Therapy Scalp Soother comb for $9.99 to review.

Well, I do agree with Tamar, it looks a bit ghetto and nothing I would use in public…however I think any form of public self-grooming is inappropriate.  But I was also skeptical because I wondered how healthy trying to reach your scalp beneath your braided base really is, after all we don’t want to pull at our hair.  But I thought it has to be better than hitting myself in the head or digging my scalp with a bobby pin! C’mon, admit…you’ve been there, right?  Well, I did a little research and was happy to see all the benefits:

Luxe Therapy Scalp Soother Review - Longing 4 Length

I used it to reach my scalp whenever I had a sporadic itch while wearing my sew in and the curved design fit against my scalp perfectly and did not snag or feel as if it caused any damage at all.  The teeth are extremely flexible and soft and  it did indeed feel “soothing” to my scalp!  I also imagine it would be perfect to add volume to curly and textured styles.  Here is some additional information from the Luxe Therapy website:

  • The flexible, yet sturdy design allows the teeth to spread out over the scalp in order to conform to the shape of your head with use. Once the tool becomes conformed, if needed, you can simply push teeth back into place!
  • Directions:  Gently slide Scalp Soother™ directly on scalp starting at the hairline and slide towards the crown. Slide moving around the circumference of the head.
  • USE WITH CAUTION: Please do not scratch vigorously! Clean after each use with mild soap and water. For hair extension and hair weave wearers: Due to the varied braid tension of each individual hairstylist, please allow 7-10 days after a new install to use the Scalp Soother™.

I simply moved the comb along my scalp slowly then removed and began again in a new spot.  It even reached beneath my closure without any issues!  I received my Luxe Therapy Scalp Soother within 3-4 days after ordering, shipping was super fast.  Do I think this is an absolute must have?  Probably not.  Am I glad I purchased it?  Absolutely!!!  Especially since I plan on staying weaved up for the majority of the year.  I also could see myself using this item rather than doing regular scalp massages since it won’t disturb my hairstyle.  I’ll try it on a flexirod set soon so I can test it further for you.

    Seems like something I need to invest in before I get my install.

      Yes girl – it really is gentle and so much better than trying to reach your scalp with other tools. And I am surprised at how gentle it feels, not harmful at all!

      I know right? I thought “oh, um…this won’t be that useful” boy was I wrong!

    I think the scalp soother is the best thing ever!!!! Better than scratching with your nails.

      Absolutely! I can’t believe how much I love it! Thanks for commenting.

    This looks interesting! I use a shampoo scalp brush usually but haven’t been able to since I’m wearing mini twists. I think I’ll be purchasing this!

    • http://www.longing4length.com/ EbonyCPrincess

      YES this would be perfect for twists!!!! I am shocked at how gentle it was, I did not expect that at all…lol!

      • http://www.oneand20.com/ Britt @ One&20

        I have been using this everyday! It is FANTASTIC!!!

    Did you call the Scalp Soother Ghetto? What’s Ghetto…. is beating your head to death. What’s ghetto is sticking envelope openers and pens in your tracks. I’m not sure Tamar has the right to call anyone ghetto. This product is a God send and sistas/writers need to utilize more evolved adjectives and language when attempting to compliment each other.

      Whoa…who’s using envelope openers or pens? And I reviewed/shared/promoted an item I purchased with my own money. That is the highest compliment I can pay another business owner in my humble opinion. Thanks for reading and commenting.
