ICYMI: Over here at Wildling, we seriously love our Scalp Comb.
If you haven’t had a chance to give it a try yet, allow us to shed some light on our most beloved healthy hair BFF. The Empress Gua Sha Stimulating Scalp Comb was designed by experts to stimulate circulation, soothe the scalp, and calm the mind.
Additionally, when used consistently, Wilding’s Gua Sha Stimulating Scalp Comb is scientifically proven to support healthy hair growth.
A study performed in Japan points to consistent scalp massage as a proven method of improving both the growth patterns and thickness of hair. In this study, 4 minutes a day for a total of 6 months results in healthier, thicker, stronger hair.
Even more good news? You’ll reap benefits of our patented Scalp Comb far more immediately than that. With its design specifically formulated to stimulate the meridians of the head, there’s no other tool on the market quite like Wildling’s Scalp Comb.
Additional perks: with each use, this tool will lift both your energy level as well as facial features, it won't pull or snag hair, and is suitable for all hair types.
Scalp Massage: The Science
Let’s take a moment to review the benefits of scalp massage. While the immediate effect of a scalp massage is relaxation (always a plus in our book), cumulative benefits over time are boosted hair growth and improved scalp health.
So, how does it work? As with all of our gua sha tools, one of the main functions of Wildling’s Scalp Comb is that it increases circulation to the scalp. Massage stimulates the blood vessels in the scalp, which in turn delivers more oxygen and nutrients to each hair follicle. Increased circulation like this is thought to promote hair growth and potentially prevent hair loss when performed consistently.
Another benefit of this practice is that it can help to reduce stress levels. We all know stress can be off the charts at various moments in our lives, and finding small ways to mitigate stress with at-home rituals can truly make a significant difference. When in stress response, your body produces cortisol, the stress hormone. Cortisol may lead to hair loss, as well as a myriad of other health problems. By promoting relaxation and reducing stress levels, scalp massage may reduce the amount of cortisol in your body as well as regulate the nervous system.
Lastly, massaging or combing the scalp also helps to regulate the production of sebum, the natural oil produced by the scalp, which needs to be in balance for long, strong, healthy hair.
How to Use Wildling’s Scalp Comb
As with all our beauty tools and rituals, consistency is key. To get maximum benefit from your Empress Gua Sha Stimulating Scalp Comb Ritual, it’s crucial to perform the ritual regularly. Aim to massage your scalp for at least 4 minutes daily, using the comb intuitively and working your way around the scalp.
Feel free to add some of our Empress Balm of Gilead Barrier Repair Oil to make this a full scalp treatment (you’ll want to wash your hair after), or simply use the comb. Take some deep breaths before, during, and after your at-home mini spa sesh.

Remember - by increasing blood flow, reducing stress, and promoting relaxation, scalp massage can help to improve the health and appearance of your hair and scalp as well as your mind & spirit.
