Japanese best-selling UKA Scalp Brush “KENZAN”
only 5 in stock, sold out at Harrods, get yours before they’re gone!
Hi, I’m Chie from Zak Zakkka. I’ve just been back to Japan for ten days and one of the things I am so glad that I bought, so much so that I purchased another, is what I am sharing with you today.
Featured on beauty magazines, Instagram and other social media.
I’ve read so much about UKA scalp brush on social media and influencers in Japan but didn’t quite think about putting it on my shopping list, as I didn’t think I would remember to use it on a regular basis. But since one of my beauty trend conscious friends mentioned how good it was out of the blue over lunch, I decided to give it a try. How glad I am that I did!
I searched online after coming back to UK and found that Harrods used to sell them online as well, but it’s been out of stock for a few weeks.
Daily stress reliever and a powerful anti-ageing tool
In Japan, it is well known that a stiff scalp can lead to headaches and stiff shoulders and neck and cause premature sagginess in the facial muscle. There are many pressure points in the scalp that can regulate the nervous system, so massaging the scalp is considered as a healing/relaxing treatment. Because a stiff scalp can also trigger bad circulation, it can lead to hair loss and cause grey hair as well.
UKA scalp brush will allow you to treat your scalp daily, right in the comfort of your home. It’s far better than going to a beauty treatment once a month and not doing anything for the rest of the days!
The brush comes in different colours with different hardness, and the black version is a hard” type. The “cones” look really rigid, but they’re made of silicone and the tip gives really easily, so it doesn’t hurt or damage your skin, while putting adequate pressure. I’ve gone for black as there were many reviews saying they’ve opted for a soft one first but immediately went for the harder version afterwards.
How to use
You can use UKA scalp brush in the shower or out of the shower. As for myself, I use the brush every time I wash my hair. After applying shampoo to the top of the head, side, and behind the neck and on my strands, I massage my scalp with the brush in an upward movement while applying pressure lightly. It feels really good, and I was surprised how the shampoo lathered into a micro smooth foam, and my hair didn’t get tangled at all. It was a lot easier than using my fingers to massage my scalp, and my hair felt a lot smoother after rinsing shampoo off.
Small but mighty
UKA scalp brush “kenzan” fits in your palm, and the butterfly shape makes it easy to grip. It comes with an instruction with drawings about how to massage your scalp, and you can use it in the shower or bath but also when your hair is dry, on pressure points on the scalp or around the face. Just make sure you don’t rub it against your skin or put too much pressure.
I have a paddle brush from Aveda, which is also popular for scalp massaging and tapping, but I’ve found that I couldn’t apply much pressure, and my electric scalp massager didn’t quite hit the right spots. I am really happy that I’ve given uka scalp massager a try, and I am even thinking of gifting this to my Japanese friends next time I go back for a visit!
