‘Bye-bye, flakes’: This Amazon scalp massager with 107,000+ fans just dropped to $6

What is it?

Nobody likes having a dry scalp. The itching, the scratching, the flaking, the people you're next to sidling away in fear that you've got fleas ... or worse. If your hair bed is in need of a little TLC, you may want to head over (heh) to Amazon and pick up the Heeta Scalp Massager. So far, more than 107,000 people have given it a five-star rating, claiming it helps with everything from oil control and shedding to reducing dandruff.

Reviewers say it helps combat everything from shedding and oiliness to dry scalp.

Why is it a good deal?

Right now this miraculous scalp brush can be yours for as little as $6 (down from $11)! Not only will it help get rid of the freaky flakes, but it'll also enhance your shower time, making it more of a spa experience right in your home. This means you'll no longer be singing the blues in the shower (though feel free to sing some show tunes).

Why do I need this?

The Heeta is made with soft silicone “bristles” attached to an ergonomically-designed handle. It promises a deep clean while gently exfoliating your scalp without scratching it, and works on nearly all hair textures and lengths. The silicone brush is waterproof, so you can use it in the shower to massage in your shampoo, or on dry hair to give yourself a soothing scalp treatment.

Along with being lightweight and affordable, this scalp massager fits in the palm of your hand, making it portable and easy to travel with. It comes in 10 different colors, so it's a cinch to find an option you'll love, but customers are smitten for myriad other reasons, too. "Life-changing," said one. "Can't believe I ever lived without it."

What reviewers say:

"Bye-bye, flakes," raved another shopper. "I love this shampoo brush! My son had really bad flakes in his hair from dry scalp. It was really bad, poor thing. We tried all different kinds of shampoos and creams but nothing worked. I stumbled across this product and I thought why not give it a try. After one use, there was noticeably less flakes. After using it for a week, there were no more flakes."

A tip from this fan, "I don't massage more than a couple times clockwise and a couple counter-clockwise in each spot. That seems to prevent a tangling effect. I do love the massaging so much! The handle is designed exactly as one would hold the brush and you don't have to worry that the brush will slip from your grip. It also comes with a tiny rope to hang in the shower."

Another said it "saved my scalp," before adding, "I bought this lil scrubber when I was really struggling with a dry/flaky/itchy scalp. My head always gets dry during the winter months and this has been my saving grace! I use it before I wash my hair and again in the shower and it’s completely gotten rid of my dandruff."

"Decreased my hair shedding," said one five-star reviewer. "This product is probably my favorite thing I've bought this year! I wash my hair every three days and give my scalp a good scrub in the shower with this. First, it feels amazing! Second, I've noticed a lot less hair loss in the shower over the past two months, which was the reason I bought it. I've also had a significant decrease in dry scalp."

"Oh my goodness … the oil has significantly reduced from my scalp! My hair suffered from an oily scalp in between wash days in the past. After incorporating this into my routine while shampooing, my life has been changed! I notice a huge difference in my hair and can go longer without having to constantly keep up with washing," raved another customer.

Your manicure will thank you, too, now that you're not cracking and chipping your nails trying to relieve all that itching.
