Sensory Hair Brush
This Sensory Hair Brush is Ideal for Your Kids Overly Sensitive Scalps.
Children with autism typically suffer from a condition known as sensory processing disorder. Many personal care activities like brushing their teeth and brushing their hair can be difficult to tolerate, which can cause a personal care deficit.
This silicone hair brush is great for kids with autism 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.

Sensory Strategies for Hair Brushing:
- Brush hair twice a day to build up a tolerance and to establish a routine.
- Apply firm pressure.
- Having the person distracted may help, for example keeping the TV on in the background.
- Brushing in front of a mirror may help tolerance and confidence.
- Use conditioner in the shower, and detangling spray prior to brushing.
- Use firm, downward strokes and avoid light strokes.
- Encourage the person to brush his or her own hair.
- Start with a small number of strokes, such as 5, to make it predictable, and gradually.
