Ultra-Soft Vibrating Silicone Hair Brush (Waterproof)
This Silicone Hair Brush is Ideal for Overly Sensitive Scalps.
People with autism process sensory information much differently. They can hear things louder than others, smell and taste things more strongly than others, and they can also be much more sensitive to touch to the point where it brings them physical pain. Sometimes, this makes self-care extremely difficult or near impossible.
Hair brushing can become a problem if it is not done daily, and maintain scalp health is important.
This ultra-soft vibrating waterproof silicone hairbrush is great for people with autism simply because it provides a gentle alternative for what might otherwise be a painful yet necessary activity. Plus, it can be soothing, fun to use, and, best of all, encourage the independent behavior.
Why the Ultra-Soft Vibrating Silicone Hair Brush?
- Stimulates the Scalp: The brush will gently massage the scalp, creating a positive environment for hair growth, and it can also be extremely relaxing for treating high stress/anxiety.
- Strengthens the Hair: This brush distributes the scalp’s naturally-produced sebum evenly through the hair, keeping shiny locks resilient and strong.
- Ideal for Shower Use: Use it in the shower with shampoo for great results.
- Encourages Independence: This brush can be fun because of its soothing vibrating function. It will encourage a self-sustained, comfortable routine in or out of the shower.
Sensory Strategies for Hair Brushing:
- Brush hair twice a day to build up a tolerance and to establish a routine.
- Apply firm pressure.
- Use the vibrating function as a scalp massage to help desensitize.
- Having the person distracted may help, for example keeping the TV on in the background.
- Have several brushes available for the child to choose from. See if they pick a favorite.
- Brushing in front of a mirror may help tolerance and confidence.
- Use conditioner in the shower, and detangling spray prior to brushing.
