This gorgeous kit delivers an incredible head massage and a gentle once-a-week scalp detox, too. Gua sha, a traditional Chinese therapy involving a jade skin-massage tool, is the inspiration behind the hand-cut jade comb. Combined with the brand’s transformative once-a-week scalp tonic—the replenishing blend of cold-processed oils dissolves product buildup and oil while conditioning the scalp—the comb makes a fantastic ritual for any hair type. You work in the tonic, then trace the comb across the scalp in long strokes. The brand’s founder, Helen Reavy, is a hairstylist and trichologist who’s adamant that scalp health is the key to shiny, healthy hair, and this, she says, is the one of the most powerful ways to support it. It feels as amazing to do on yourself—it brings you, counterintuitively, right out of your head and into the moment—as it does when you do the ritual for a (lucky) friend, lover, or family member.
