Healthy, flake-free, itch-free scalp. Cleaner, longer, bouncier hair… You already know WHY you need a scalp scrub. Now it’s time to learn the tricks of the trade!
From when to where and how to apply, here’s how to incorporate a scalp scrub into your hair routine. Read on if you’re ready to join the scrub club – and experience the best hair of your life!
Use as an intensive pre-shampoo treatment
The best time to use a scalp scrub is once a week, right before you shampoo and condition. Or, if extra nourishment is needed, use on #selfcaresunday, before a pampering hair masque sesh.
Why use it first? Because great hair begins with a healthy, happy scalp! Giving the scalp an intensive deep cleanse and exfoliation – removing oils, impurities and dry skin cells – boosts scalp health and creates an ideal hair growth environment. By removing build-up left over from your styling prods, a scalp scrub supercharges your regular haircare products. So, they can deliver even better results!
Use your Coco & Eve Deep Clean Scalp Scrub once weekly, especially when:
- Your roots are greasy
- Your hair is feeling a bit blah or looking dull
- Your scalp is itchy
- You’re frustrated by flakiness
- You have product build-up
- Your hair feels limp or weighed down
- You feel like a really deep clean
- You need an instant pick-me-up! (Thanks to the delicious scent and even-more-delicious scalp tingles.)
Follow these easy application steps
Ready to scrub in? Apply the Deep Clean Scalp Scrub on damp hair before shampooing. Part the hair using the tapered side of our 2 Way Scalp Applicator, then smooth the scrub onto your roots with the silicon fan side of the applicator. Smooth along the hairline, then massage into the scalp for 20-30 seconds of bliss.
Breathe in the exotic scent and enjoy the cooling scalp tingles, care of peppermint essential oil. After 1 minute, rinse thoroughly with warm water, then shampoo.
Make it a once-a-week – not an everyday – thing
More is more, right? Wrong! Using a scalp scrub every day won’t give you better results – in fact, the opposite is true. Too much scalp scrubbing could end up causing irritation or triggering an increase in oil production. Not exactly the result you want!
Even though our scrub is gentle (but super-effective!), it’s best to stick with a once-a-week application. A weekly sloughing will give you ALL the results you want, without over-stimulating or stripping your scalp and strands.
Follow with a sulfate-free shampoo & conditioner
Now your scalp is freshly exfoliated and your locks are squeaky clean (but hydrated!), the last thing you want is to undo your good work. This means avoiding harsh shampoos with potentially irritating and drying sulfates, and other nasty chemicals.
Instead, do your head a favour and stick with a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. Bonus points if you select one that’s packed with natural cleansers, hydrators and detanglers!
Finish with a nourishing hair masque for unBALIevable results
Hair masque not delivering as much bang for its buck as it used to? Don’t bin it – invest in a detoxifying scalp scrub! By removing product build-up, oils and other impurities, our Deep Clean Scalp Scrub preps your strands to drink up all that magic masquey goodness.
This means, when you give your scalp a scrub down before using our Like A Virgin Super Nourishing Coconut & Fig Hair Masque, you can expect even glossier, silkier, bouncier results!
Powered by the most effective Balinese tropical ingredients, our Deep Clean Scalp Scrub is an intense, once-weekly pre-shampoo treatment to remove product and oil build up and assist with scalp dryness and flakiness, leaving you with the cleanest and healthiest hair of your life!
