Has anyone tried The Tingler? It's safe for work ;)
Yes. I had someone demo that on me at a state fair. It felt fannnntastic-- little fingers of gentle pressure massaging the scalp, no tangling or anything.

I don't know that I need to own it, but I do remember the sensation pleasantly.

Yeah, a sales guy put one on my head at the mall during the holidays. Nice, a little tickly. Like Miko, though, I wouldn't pay to have one.

I've used something similar. It's nice, but I prefer getting my hair shampooed at a salon, if that makes sense.

Yes, I have one, and last year I offered 1-minute head massages for 1 a time when we had a Charity Day at work.* People couldn't get enough of it.

It's lovely, but, although in theory you can use it on yourself, it doesn't have the same effect as someone else using it on you.

Also, if you have long hair the prongs can get a bit tangled up in it.

*Oh, and I did wipe the prongs clean between each massage too.

Someone put one of my once, and it made me feel sick. Bleech.

I own one and the novelty wears off fast, though the first few times are enjoyable.

A bit like men, in that respect, or so I understand.

I too own one and have the same opinion as Lentrohamsanin.

Doesn't work for some people. My partner hates it. I find it soothing. Use it too often and it doesn't feel as nice.

You can get them for as little as $7 through mainstream retailers. Twenty plus shipping is a lot.
