Hair loss devices and tools

One of the keys to reducing hair loss is scalp stimulation:

  • increases blood flow
  • reduced oils with androgens on scalp
  • exfoliates

Recommended devices

Another important option is minimizing the amount of styling that involves pulling on the hair. Among hair loss recommendations are the following items.

Hair-washing devices

  • scalp massager / shampoo brush

Hair brushes

  • boar bristle hair brush (or vegan equivalent)

Picks or wide-toothed combs

  • Narrow-toothed combs should be avoided
  • Detangling combs that reduce pulling

Hair dryers

Whenever possible, let your hair air-dry. Too much heat on your scalp while drying your hair can help cause hair loss, so consider hair dryers with these options:

  • no-heat setting
  • diffuser attachment


  • Some fabrics may help reduce friction on your hair while you sleep. Popular options include:
    • Silk
    • Satin
    • Polyester
