How to Use
Rated 4.78 out of 5 stars
This is a great cleansing and purifying scalp and hair scrub. I read other reviewers commenting about how this scrub is better than the more expensive alternatives, and I agree. I have used the dpHUE ACV, Christophe Robin and Briogeo scalp scrubs, and my favorite is this one by far. I have been using this scrub once weekly for the past several months now, and I can say that this scrub does live up to its promises. My hair feels soft and looks shiny, but my scalp feels deeply cleansed and fresh and it has not affected my color/dye at all. It also lathers surprisingly well, so I don't need to use as much product as I did with my previous scalp scrubs. When I used other scalp scrubs in the past, my hair would feel very stripped and dry and/or my scalp wasn't purified enough. I bought this product on a whim and I am so glad I did! I liked my Briogeo charcoal scalp scrub the best and purchased a couple different times, but this scalp scrub is a lot better due to the fact my hair does not feel as dry/stripped after using, yet my scalp feels just as cleansed of buildup and oil. Considering this scrub is literally 1/3-1/4 of the price and better smelling than all of the others I have used in the past I will continue to repurchase!
For reference: I have medium-length wavy/curly colored hair and use heat tools. I use this in place of shampoo every third time I wash my hair (usually about a week's time) and condition and style as usual.
Well I tried this based on the exceptional reviews this received....after being SHOCKED at how dry my scalp became after using it, I returned here to look over the reviews again and this time, maybe since i was looking a little closer - the vast majority of these reviews were obviously paid for ...all give 5 stars, all were posted a day after one another on schedule, all have 5 reviews they've left before in parenthesis, many use some of the same repeated keywords to describe how great this is ...disappointing that this site does t have some kind of algorithm in place to detect such patterns ...regardless this scrub is DRYING!

Girl, this is NOT a face scrub, it is a scalp scrub and it is good for textured hair that gets a lot of product build up. I have fine strands of hair but an excessive amount of it, so damaging and drying it out make me look like an S wave that's been electrocuted. Each time I use it I notice an improvement to the spiral of my hair and the volume and bounce are there again. I do prewash my hair because my buildup can be excessive. Then after rinsing I use a small amount of this and massage it into my scalp. I know I've done my duty when it gets frothy, then I rinse and use a lightweight leave in. As a toddler mom this helps me wash and go my natural hair and save loads of time.

I got this as a sample and I used with my husband while we showered he's usaully a huge skeptic of trying new products on his hair and skin and he and I got hooked after our first use. A little goes a long way with it insane sudsing ability yet it still keeps its creamy feel and the scrub isn't to abrasive for the scalp and best of it really cleans your hair without stripping your hair! It's definitely becoming a household staple for us!

I have thick, wavy hair. I have always struggled with product build up because it is so difficult for me to effectively wash my own hair. I paired this with a scalp massaging brush and I can go longer periods of time without washing my hair and worrying about dandruff and build up.

I love how little you need to apply to make your hair feel great and look healthy. This helps reduce buildup and makes hair look shiny and healthy.
Shonnarenee from Utah
Absolutely love this Scrub!! Im not sure what happened with the others with negative reviews because for me this did a BEAUTIFUL JOB on my hair!! WILL BUY AGAIN!!!
JM from NC
I use this once per week and keep buying more. I have thick, coarse, wavy hair and this is great for a good cleanse. I usually get dry scalp/flakes this time of year, but this scrub has eliminated the issues. It smells amazing too!!!

I'm writing this as I'm pulling chunks of hair from my scalp 😭
Lex from Washington DC
yes it's quite coarse but once you give it a good rub the lather is really luxurious. I have a lot of product buildup since my hair is colored and I try to wash it as little as possible, so the dry shampoo is REAL. This is the only product that cleans my scalp to the point that there's no greasy residue when I blowdry my hair after my shower!
Victoria from South Orange, NJ
It's perfect! I wash my hair once a week so I use this every time and it makes my hair so shiny. Really enjoy it.

I can't imagine trying to rub this into your hair. It is like a thick paste with turbinado sugar in it. I decided to use it on my face and it was very rough on my skin. It also left my face dry and itchy. I develop Allergic Dermatitis from Cocamidopropyl Betaine and this scrub has this in it. It also has Sodium Bonzoate in it and that has given me headaches in the past. I will not be finishing this. Thank goodness it was a free trial.
Andrea from Los Angeles
My hair gets extremely oily. I got this as a deluxe sample used it 4x, twice a week. Left my scalp feeling clean abs my hair was shiny. I don't usually buy stuff after I receive samples but soon as this ran out I ran to the store to purchase. My hair feels so healthy after use.

I use this scrub once a week on my scalp and I love it. It smells amazing and makes my scalp so soft and refreshed! I have 2b/2c curly thin hair and works great for me

I got this as a sample in an Ulta hair gift many months ago and just recently gave it a try. OMG, I was floored at how amazing it was the first time I used it. It smells light and nice, and gives a good lather as you massage it in. The scrubbing granules are large enough to feel as you use it, which is nice because it helped me know where it had been applied. It also fully rinsed out of my hair and left no reside behind. I felt like it appropriately clarified my hair. And the best part is that it actually soothed and calmed the inflamed eczema that covers the majority of my hairline, and removed the flakes and dry skin there. I immediately bought a full size jar (and then another because they are pretty small and it takes quite a bit of product for my thick hair). I also was able to use this to spot treat the eczema when using another gentle shampoo on the rest of my hair. I LOVE this product!!

Ok I decided to leave a review after reading someone's comment about "most reviews being fake". Well, this is NOT a fake review and nobody paid me to leave it. I learned about this product while doing research about hair loss and regrowing healthy hair. One blog mentioned the importance of scrubbing your scalp. I started researching hair scrubs. This one happened to be on sale at the time (last year May 2020) and it had great reviews so I got it. I'M SO GLAD I DID, and that that review wasn't there at the time because I would have probably stopped me from trying it. I love everything about this scrub, from the texture, to the smell, to how it foams, to how clean it leaves my scalp and finally how I loose less hair since using it. I do have an oily scalp (but dry hair). I see a few reviews stating it over dried their scalp and/or hair. Those reviews seem to be from people who color their hair. Their scalps could be sensitized causing dryness. I've never had a problem with it drying out my scalp or hair. I find it very easy to apply and rinse out. I rub it between my hands with some water (it foams up) distribute through my scalp, and work it in with a shampoo brush. Scalp feels amazing afterwards. Give it a try, you can return it if you don't like it, but don't let someone's assumption keep you from trying a great product. Try it for yourself and you be the judge. By the way, it lasts forever. I still have 1/2 a jar left. I will use this forever.

I use this once a week in the shower before shampooing and conditioning and I love it. The scrub smells amazing and doesn't a great job cleansing my scalp. I have 2b/2c wavy/curly hair and often get a dry/itchy scalp and this stuff works well for me. Highly recommend!

Literally had to chew antihistamines/shower in baby hypoallergenic to get the hives, burn, itch to even be tolerable!
lexie from n/a
this stuff is no joke!! i have extremely greasy hair and this keeps my hair non greasy and soft!
Amazing! from Gainesville, FL.
So far I love it! It immediately started making my hair super soft and cleaner feeling. I love the scent, it's very mild which is nice. So far no issues but DO NOT get it in your eyes. The stinging is the worst I've ever experienced. Will keep using it, but holy cow close and cover your eyes!!
Ally from NC
I adore this scalp scrub. It's the only one I've ever repurchased. The granules actually get down to your scalp instead of dissolving upon impact with water like most of these other scrubs. It lathers SO MUCH and feels like such a luxury.
Curly Girl from Louisburg NC
The best scalp scrub ever. I have used them all and this one is hands down without a doubt the best!
BB from Texas
Wow!! Love a great scalp scrub. The granules really get down to the scalp-effective and gentle! Bonus-it turns into a great lather and actually cleanses hair, so need to use an additional shampoo! Love using at end of a long week of dry shampoo!!
Harmonie from Northern California
Received a trial size as a free gift with a past purchase. Absolutely loved it. A small amount is all you need to do your whole head. It's only meant to be scrubbed at the scalp to remove build up and exfoliate. It is not a shampoo. After rinsing out well I follow with my regular shampoo & conditioner.
As I've gotten older my hair has become dryer and course and this really helped me extend the time between shampoos while also keeping my scalp healthy and clean. The trial size lasted for a couple months and I finally purchased a full size. considering how little you need, the jar will probably last a year. So it's a great value as well.
Rachel from Philadelphia
I've never used a scalp scrub that foamed and lathered like this and smelled so good! I got this as a sample and I already have it saved to my favorites. It made my hair so soft and silky and surprisingly didn't lift any of my red hair dye. For reference I have med/long color treated thin hair
