You exfoliate your skin to remove dead skin cells, so it only makes sense to apply this same method to your scalp, right? Scalp scrubs are all the rage in the beauty world right now—and for good reason. Not only do they help remove product build-up whilst detoxifying at the same time, scalp scrubs also work to stimulate hair follicles which ultimately means healthier hair growth. Lucious locks with a cheeky head massage to enjoy in the process? Sounds like a no-brainer to us. Keep scrolling for a few of our current faves on the market:
1. Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt
Doubling as an ultra cleansing shampoo and scalp exfoliator, this scrub by Christophe Robin is designed to soothe sensitive, flaky and oily scalps thanks to the inclusion of sea salt (a natural exfoliator). Simply apply a small amount onto wet hair, gently massage in, lather and rinse.
From the cult beauty brand behind one of our favourite all-natural body scrubs, frank body has now added a coffee-based scalp scrub to their already impressive resume. It combines green coffee which is rich in fatty acids and antioxidants to improve scalp health, rosemary for circulation, eucalyptus for reducing inflammation and peppermint to help remove product build-up. Use twice weekly before shampooing.
Free from parabens, sulfates and pthalates, the OUAI scalp and body scrub contains sugar crystals which deeply exfoliate the scalp without drying the hair out, probiotics to balance your skin’s natural bacteria levels and coconut oil which is rich in fatty acids that nourish and moisturize.
