Shop Scalp Scrubs


Scalp scrubs are the definition of a PWDKWN (product we didn’t know we needed, shoutout to our podcast listeners). They’re not an obvious must in the same way that shampoo and conditioner are, but we swear, once you get involved, you’ll see why we’re such fans. Fresher, softer and lighter hair awaits.

 

What do scalp scrubs do? Who are they best for?

 

You might have heard a bit of chat about how skincare is coming for our hair. Scalp scrubs are firmly in that category - they aim to look after the skin on your scalp, and by doing so, help your hair grow at its healthiest. There’s a scrub for every hair type, and many of them suit just about everyone. On the whole, this is a category to investigate if you find your scalp gets a bit oily and flaky, if you’re concerned about product build up, or if you feel like your hair could use a bit of a volume boost at the root.

 

How should I use a scalp scrub?

 

This varies by product - some scalp scrubs are meant to be used before you shampoo your hair, others come afterwards. Have a look at the directions for your scrub of choice before you get into the shower, and you’ll be golden. As a rule, though, you’ll apply to wet hair, and massage into your scalp for a minute or three before rinsing well and carrying on with the rest of your hair routine. Typically, they’re designed to be used about once a week.

Not great for coloured hair

I received this as a sample and unfortunately it stripped some colour from my hair (semi permanent bright colour) and I found it pretty drying. Was not for me but would probably work well for natural hair.
