I recently tried the Jack Black Exfoliating Scalp Scrub + Shampoo with Demerara Sugar and Peppermint Oil, and I must say, it's now an essential part of my hair care routine. As someone who struggles with occasional dry/oily scalp and dull hair, this product has been a game-changer for me.
First of all, the combination of demerara sugar and peppermint oil is brilliant. The demerara sugar gently exfoliates my scalp, getting rid of any buildup and dead skin cells without causing any irritation. It's a refreshing feeling and the peppermint oil adds to that experience with its cool and tingling sensation. I can almost feel my scalp being revitalized as I use it.
The scent of peppermint is invigorating, and I love how it lingers on my hair even after rinsing. It makes my whole shower experience more enjoyable, especially during early mornings when I need that extra boost to wake up.
The exfoliation step really preps my scalp for the shampooing part. The shampoo itself is excellent - it's gentle and doesn't strip my hair of its natural oils. After using this product, my hair feels so much cleaner, and I've noticed that it stays fresher for longer periods between washes.
What's even better is that the peppermint oil seems to soothe any scalp irritation I had before using this product. I've noticed a reduction in itchiness and flakiness, which is a huge relief for me. Additionally, I've been getting compliments on how shiny and healthy my hair looks lately, and I attribute it to this scalp scrub + shampoo.
The packaging is user-friendly with a flip-top cap, making it easy to dispense the product while showering. A little goes a long way, so the bottle has lasted me quite some time, making it a good value for money.
My only minor concern is that if you get the peppermint oil too close to your eyes during the shower, it can cause some tingling. So, I've learned to be a bit cautious while using it around the hairline.
Overall, the Jack Black Exfoliating Scalp Scrub + Shampoo with Demerara Sugar and Peppermint Oil is a fantastic product that I highly recommend to anyone seeking a refreshing and revitalizing hair care experience. It addresses both scalp health and hair cleanliness, leaving me with a fresh, invigorated feeling that lasts throughout the day. If you're looking for a scalp scrub and shampoo combo that elevates your hair care routine, this one is definitely worth trying.
Exfoliating scalp scrubs are a thing? How have I never known about this. I do get an oily scalp and sometimes it gets flaky or I get some bumps. SO I was really excited to try this one. Didn't even know scalp scrubs were a thing. First off – typical Jack Black brand packaging and aesthetic. As much as I like the color theme and immediately know it's Jack Black – it doesn't really set it apart – and it looks like all the other products. If you have a lot of Jack Black products, you have to look at which one you're grabbing or get used to the little differences in the size of the bottle (if any) to make sure you're grabbing the right one. What's in it? Demerara Sugar, Peppermint Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Aloe, Prunus Armeniaca Kernal Oil. I love that it's dermatologist tested, paraben free, cruelty free, and free of harsh sulfates. It's vegan, free of artificial colorants, safe for sensitive skin, and for the most part made in the USA. All the listed ingredients are things I know of and have used for other things, which was nice! The product is supposed to be a multitasking 2-in-1 exfoliator and shampoo that removes excess oils and product buildup while gently scrubbing away dead skin cells and flakes for stronger and healthier-looking hair. Gentle for daily use and helps sooth itchy, dry, and oily scalp. I used the product as instructed on the bottle. Easy to use. Felt like normal shampoo. Slight grit to it, but didn't feel like you were washing your hair with sand. Maybe I wanted a little bit more grittiness so I can feel it exfoliating my hair. Maybe that's actually not needed – but I did feel a little bit disappointed by that. I wasn't sure if I was just shampooing and washing my hair at that point. I also felt like there was little to no lather unless you use a lot of the product at once. The sugar crystals in the product melts when using it – but I did notice some of the grittiness (presuming the sugar) gets stuck in the dispensing hole. Takes a bit of work to clear it. After several uses – it does get tedious trying to clear it mid-shower. The size of the bottle isn't that big and won't last long. The retail price just for the product doesn't make it a good buy in my honest opinion. The smell is neutral – not as strong as other products. The peppermint smell is slight in the shower but fades away after you get out. Maybe a different scent would make this product better. Overall – it's a decent shampoo. It cleaned my hair. Made it soft and felt clean. Was it better than any other product I currently use? Not really. Did I notice any exfoliation? Did I notice any difference with flaky or bumps? Not really. Oily scalp? Slightly less – but any shampoo will do that. This could probably be rebranded as a facewash if I am being honest. On the bright side, at least I didn't have any residue in my hair. And It didn't make anything worse. I feel like this product was ok. Could definitely be improved and hope it is improved in the future. I wouldn't go out of my way to buy this or recommend to others.

Love this brand. Every product I have used has had satisfying affects. I wouldn't do anything to change the product at all. Will purchase again.

Jack Black's exfoliating scalp scrub and shampoo works great! The scrub shampoo removes buildup and left my hair feeling clean and fresh. It has a refreshing scent and I noticed a reduction in flakes.
Highly recommend for anyone seeking effective scalp care.

Honestly was excited to try this but the product was way too thick to do what it was supposed to do, it just got stuck in my hair before it even reached my scalp. The product didn't spread at all and it was hard to wash out because it was greasy. Great idea but function was not there

This stuff smells really really awesome. It also makes your hair so soft. I would recommend this to a friend or family member. This is a must have item

This is a good product which helps exfoliate excess oil and dandruff.
Gives a good shiny and silly feeling to the hairs. Observed reduced hairfall and product buildup on the scalp.

I have thick hair and I don't shampoo often, maybe once in 10 days because of my hair color.. I need a good shampoo when I do. I got myself the Jack Black Exfoliating Scrub and Shampoo and it works wonderfully. I didn't think I needed the exfoliation but boy does it feel good. My hair is clean and soft and manageable after the wash. The fragrance is great too. Love the product.

I don't have long hair, but it works for me. Smells pretty good and cleans my hair all the same. Might not purchase from the store because there are other products I would rather use.

This product smells great and was very useful. I used it as a shampoo and as a beard wash. The sugar scrub feels great on the scalp and helps relieve itchy beards. Definitely both keeping in your routine.

My husband tried this and he thought it lathered well and had a faint scent. It left his hair feeling clean and rinsed out well without leaving build up.

I received this free for testing. Overall not a bad scrub/shampoo. I have curly hair that runs more on the dry side. I usually try to do a scalp scrub once a week to help with build up in my hair. This one works really well and really exfoliating the scalp. No irritation or being too harsh. Only downside is it overly drys out my hair more so I have to use more moisture product. But all in all not too bad.

This shampoo smells great. You come out smelling and feeling clean. It also has helped me with exfoliating my scalp. I sometimes get lots of dry dead skin on my scalp that starts to itch and this helps to remove and to moisturize the area.

Jack Black has been impressing me with every new launch. This shampoo is no different.
I've never even thought about a scalp scrub shampoo, but prior to using this, I was using a device that helps massage and scrub the scalp. Although stranger at first, you can feel small beads in the product that easily dissolve. Don't worry! They don't get stuck or anything. The shampoo lathers very well and the scent is fresh. My hair was lighter and better looking after first day use. I'm happy with it!

I want to say I was sent this to use and give my review on the the product and influenster furnished the product to me for free.
I really shocked myself with this product and by that I mean I was in the shower and put some of this scalp scrub in my hand and proceeded to wash my hair/head and I was totally surprised as the sandy gritty massaging feel cleaned my scalp and felt refreshed knowing it scrubbed the dirty dirtiness from my head. I would definitely recommend this invigorating product no doubt.

I love the fact that this shampoo has pepermint in the ingredients which helps keep my hair shiny clean and looking hydrated at all times. It lathers very well too so a little goes a long way.
williamd5 from undisclosed
So the scent is great.. but the only issue is I have long hair and this product is very thick! I can't get it to latter up like normal shampoos. I Recommend for short haired people.
danielgae29 from undisclosed
Great product it really helped with my itchy scalp and left my head feeling refreshed after every wash. Will definitely be suing this product for my daily routine!
caiguar from undisclosed
So far the best in the set. This shampoo leaves you feeling refreshed and clean. Has a minty sensation that really wakes you up and makes you feel energetic. Since i change shampoos for teating purposes i was skeptical and concerned this might triggers my itchy scalp or dandruff, nothing like that happen. This was the best shampoo i have tried so far. I love it.

Jack Black Exfoliating Scalp Rub + Shampoo is an absolute game-changer for those seeking a thorough and invigorating haircare experience. This two-in-one product offers the best of both worlds, combining an exfoliating scalp rub with a cleansing shampoo, making it a standout in the market. The scalp rub component truly sets this product apart. Its micro-fine scrubbing particles effectively remove buildup and impurities, promoting a healthier scalp environment. I found this to be especially beneficial in combating dandruff and dryness, leaving my scalp feeling refreshed and revitalized. The shampoo itself delivers on its promises, gently cleansing the hair without stripping it of essential oils. It lathers well, making it easy to distribute through the hair and scalp, providing a satisfying cleansing experience. One of the key highlights is the inclusion of key ingredients like salicylic acid, which helps to prevent flakiness and maintain a balanced scalp. Additionally, the formula contains tea tree oil, which provides a soothing sensation and adds a refreshing aroma to the product. The packaging is practical and user-friendly, with a flip-top cap that ensures easy dispensing and prevents wastage. The scent is pleasant without being overpowering, catering to both men and women. After consistent use, I noticed a significant improvement in the overall health of my hair and scalp. My hair felt softer, looked shinier, and felt lighter, thanks to the scalp's renewed condition. Although the price might be slightly higher than some traditional shampoos, the added benefits of exfoliation and targeted scalp care make it well worth the investment. Overall, Jack Black Exfoliating Scalp Rub + Shampoo is a top-tier choice for those seeking a holistic haircare solution that leaves you feeling refreshed and confident.

While the scent is very pleasant I found this to be very thick and tough to actually get down to the scalp and feel the scrub working, my hair is not that long but still found it difficult to use.
kevoliver from undisclosed
I love this scalp scrub and shampoo I received as part of my Jack Black Vox Box! It's awesome that not only do I get a great clean head of hair, but scrubbing the scalp is also great for hair growth and health. I love the smell and experience of using it. I would highly recommend.
jeremycb6f1 from undisclosed
It serms weird at first to have a scrub and shampoo combined but somehow it works! My scalp and hair feel nice and clean and helps keep dry scalp issues at a minimum
americol1 from undisclosed
Works well but I think is too rough on skin - I like it but it feels a bit greasy and doesn't dissolve quickly- I would of liked to try a more water downed version
jovanc from undisclosed
Now I'm someone who has always had a bad scalp to deal with so I was looking for something to help with that and I found it. Very soothing and not irritating. I like it
