Most Helpful Positive Review It's truly great!!
I e never tried a scalp scrub before, so I was very intrigued when presented with the opportunity. Nexus a alp scrub smells amazing and clean. When applying in shower I just made sure my hair was wet and parted it into a few sections as to get the scrub onto my scalp. It scrubs nicely and kind of dissolves much like a sea salt exfoliant does while scrubbing. It isn't harsh or abrasive,but just right! It gathers up a little bit and I actually used in in place of a shampoo on my 34" hair just to see how it worked. It was fine. My hair felt clean and looked and smelledbeautiful. I used it pre shampoo as a scalp scrub and that was fine too, but if you're not into putting so much stuff in your hair, using it alone is just fine. I'd highly reccomend this to anyone looking to change up their routine, I get dry scalp and it was instrumental in getting rid of my itchy head!! I'll definitely be purchasing regularly..
Most Helpful Critical Review Dries the hair out
I purchased this hoping to replace the super expensive CHRISTOPHE ROBIN I absolutely love. This is not a dupe or even remotely close to it. I have used this 3 times instead of shampoo. I have thin and fine hair that gets oily within 24 hours. I wash my hair daily or I look like a giant grease ball and I have to use a ton of dry shampoo to remove it, which loads my hair down and makes it look dull and lifeless. This scrub made my normally silky smooth hair feel dry and it tangled my hair. I sprayed some leave in conditioner which helped untangle it and reduce the dryness. I would rather go for the more expensive CR version, which smelled a lot nicer than this one.

It's very gritty and thick, smells fresh. Don't need much per use. Helps to section off hair and use an exfoliating brush to insure you get full scalp. Affordable.
Great Gentle Scrub!
doodlem01 from Detroit, MI
Wet my hair first, worked it into my scalp in different sections with about a dime size amount for each section. After I got it on my scalp, I massaged my scalp until it was a lather. Rinsed out easily after being lathered and I followed up with my shampoo to bring back some moisture and used conditioner as normal. First time using, but my hair feels great! I'd just recommend making sure you still use a shampoo so your hair doesn't feel the need to overcompensate for lost oils.
I really wanted this
adrianaa147 from undisclosed
I really wanted this product to work, but I just don't feel this scrub is helping with residue. I don't feel it actually scrubs enough, and the texture is very creamy, for a scrub.
Just like the shampoo,
dezerael1 from undisclosed
Just like the shampoo, the scalp scrub lathers up real nice. I use a quarter size every time and that's more than enough! If you use too much water when applying, it'll rinse out rather fast. I like to get the scrub feeling after using any scrub product so with this one just wet your hands before applying, maybe add a few more drops of water and you're good. That way it'll last a lot longer!
This scalp scrub smells
akv026 from undisclosed
This scalp scrub smells so good. It is affordable and you don't need to use a lot to get use of it. Love that it lathers into a shampoo and the scrub dissolves. The only negative thing is that I feel like it leaves my hair a little dry afterwards before I condition it.
Love this product!!!
Barb from Portland, OR
I love this product. After using as directed, I don't need to shampoo, just condition. My hair hasn't felt this clean and soft since using this product.
I really like this...
yesitsyesibeauty from undisclosed
I really like this scalp scrub. You do have to take your time to get it onto all areas of your scalp, then also to get it all out of your hair. Plan for a longer shower when you use this. Is use about every two weeks. It also smells great!
Kitty from Oklahoma
I bought this along with the shampoo and conditioner just to try out. I'm very sensitive to some products, as they cause my scalp to itch or be overly oily. I have eczema that is on my face and moving into my hairline. This product line is a game changer! My hair looks and feels better than it has in years!! Extremely soft and so shiny and just feels amazing!!
I was really...
mariahsabino from undisclosed
I was really dissatisfied with this product. PRO: The packaging is very nice and you get a lot of product for the price. CONS: The scrub wouldn't break down to where it felt like it was truly exfoliating my scalp. It also took forever to rinse out of my hair I had to wash my hair about 3x just to get the gritty texture out. I love scalp scrubs, and was really bummed this one didn't work out.
This product works...
katies199 from undisclosed
This product works well to help exfoliate my scalp. You do have to make sure to rub your hair though to get out all of the scrub. ￼
Julia from New Jersey
I get dandruff in the winter and wanted to get a scrub to hopefully help get rid of some of the dead skin. This stuff is great it feels good and washes out so easy(which I was worried about). It also foams and cleans your hair as you exfoliate but I do shampoo before using anyway. I have wavy hair that's on the thicker side but not super thick and it works great for my hair.
Silky Smooth Hair Gal from Minneapolis, MN
Wow (in a GOOD way). My hair was greasy after I washed and dried it because it was just coated with product. I purchased this to refresh my hair/scalp and it's bananas how well it worked. My hair is SO smooth and silky soft. It's no longer greasy after I was and dry it. It's been two weeks and I'm thrilled. Best money I've ever spent. It will be added into my routine to ensure I don't get nasty hair again. Buy this buy this buy this!!!
I don't understand how...
karinamakaren from undisclosed
I don't understand how to get scrub on your scalp. My hair gets in the way and I literally cannot get the scrubbing pieces on my skin, they get stuck in the hair. So this product has not worked for me. But I do want to give it a second chance.
Gave volume to my thin hair!
Ella48 from undisclosed
I have thin, fine, dry & sometimes dull looking hair. As I've gotten older, my hair has gotten drier. I've been looking for something to help give it volume & shine. This stuff did the job. My hair looks & feels amazing!!!
Sam from Georgia
I bought this back in July and am still using it. I do have short hair, but since you use this on your scalp and not all your hair, I don't think that matters. I was really surprised by how much and well it lathers. It smells so good and feels so refreshing. I used to have a dry scalp and it would get really itchy, but since using this about once a week, that's mostly gone away. It does make your hair very dry so use a deep conditioner after, but I love this and would definitely buy again.
This stuff is a bit...
macaroonmackenzie from undisclosed
This stuff is a bit aggressive, but my oh my it works so well. It got almost all of my flakes off, and I used my hydrating shampoo and conditioner after which I felt were more effective after using the scrub. I only use it once a week in fear of drying out my strands, but it is a treat!
Didn't do anything but dry out my hair
LongHairDontCare from California
It wasn't a pleasant process putting this goop on my scalp. It didn't feel like it did anything. It made my hair feel dry. Not hydrating at all. I will be returning never to purchase again.
I was excited to try...
xtinay25 from undisclosed
I was excited to try out this drugstore scalp scrub by Nexxus but I just haven't found it to be the easiest to clean my scalp. It leaves a bit of a residue even though I thoroughly rinse my hair out.
S from Burbank
I saw the automatic difference in my hair by the first time ! I used to have a lot of buildup and trash on my scalp & I could never get rid of it. I finally decided to purchase this scrub (first time purchasing a scalp scrub) and the buildup was gone ! I massaged it all over my scalp for a good 10 minutes. It didn't hurt, it didn't burn at all and I have a sensitive scalp. The texture was great, it wasn't too rough and it didn't smell like chemicals. I am obsessed ! My scalp doesn't get so greasy anymore.
IrishGirl from Chicago
I had high hopes going into this, especially because Nexxus is a well-known, high-end brand. I was disappointed. For reference, I have thin wavy hair and only use curl-safe products on it. Going into winter I wanted to take care of my scalp and after I applied this prior to shampooing (per directions), it made my hair feel like dead straw by the time I rinsed it out. Of course you massage into the scalp, but it's gonna get in your hair too, duh. I tried it another time just to make sure and still the same result. Luckily after I shampooed and conditioned, it felt close to normal again but still. Wish I could return as it's not cheap.
Help my psoriasis
Kyky82 from undisclosed
I have very sensitive skin and have been looking for things to clear up my psoriasis on my scalp for many years now. I never thought of using a scrub for my scalp. I have used this product until the container was completely clean! This has seriously helped improve my psoriasis tremendously! I love this product and is a must try!!!
Love how this actually...
ashroldan21 from undisclosed
Love how this actually exfoliates and removes product build up and flakes from dandruff I love how clean my scalp felt, although I did follow up with a regular shampoo for the bubbles im one of those people that need to see bubbles to feel like it's actually cleaning. I would purchase again, but I have a feeling it's going to last pretty long
proteinandmoisturebalance from nyc
This scalp scrub left my 3a/2c curls as waves after my 3rd use. I used it once a month for 3 months, and each time it always left my scalp itchy from how drying it is. This time (the definite last time I ever use it) it gave me protein overload, I had to wash a few times on my last wash day to get all that protein buildup from it off my hair. My hair is not sensitive to protein, but for some reason, this product set it off. Just be careful if you buy this and keep in mind how much protein is/isn't already in your haircare regimen, you don't want protein overload.
The product smells...
shwetak8 from undisclosed
The product smells amazing and left my hair squeaky clean! But, It didn't solve my dry scalp issue. I would definitely recommend it to those who do not have a dry scalp and are looking to get salon level cleansing results at home!
Trina from Berea, Ky
I used this 4 weeks after finishing chemo. My scalp is starting to feel and look better. This product helped with exfoliation without being to rough.
