Similar massaging scalp tools are readily available today. To be honest, I bought this one to save on shipping while purchasing another promotionally priced item. But I am super happy with my choice. While I have used a flatter round rubbing tool in the past I didn't think it was very effective. I have thick hair and the crown was not getting clean enough even though I always double cleanse when I shampoo. Now this soft efficient tool gets it's tips right down to my roots all over my head, every time allowing my shampoo to do its job. These tips are also contoured, shorter in the center and longer on the outside. Look closely, I've found most others don't come with the added convenience of the hanger. That other rubber device I mentioned could not hang no matter what I might rig and was always a problem to store. Then I'd forget to grab it before I got into the shower. My Ceremonia massager is now hanging and ready to go at a moments notice. I like the clean white color and it may even be indestructible. It dropped twice on my shower floor yesterday while trying to rehang it, my fault, and it's no worse for wear!
