DESCRIPTION

 

A gentle exfoliant that packs a powerful punch, Scrub utilizes a unique combination of ingredients that balance and detoxify the scalp without an abrasive feel. Scrub creates an optimal environment for our patent-pending Mela-9™ Complex to be absorbed into the scalp, combining antioxidants and a clinically efficacious peptide to preserve and repigment grey hair.

Includes our 100% natural signature fragrance of cedar and sage to help hair feel and smell refreshed between washes.

Free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrance, polyethylene glycol, formaldehyde, and dyes.

USAGE

 

Apply directly to scalp and massage in for several minutes, then rinse. Use 1-2 times per week or whenever your scalp is in need of a detox.

How It Works

Scrub Scalp Exfoliant

  • Detoxify

    Salicylic, glycolic and lactic acid work together to gently exfoliate, remove buildup and balance the microbiome of the scalp.
  • Stimulate

    Our clinically efficacious peptide helps with repigmentation by stimulating the MC1-R (melanocortin 1 receptor).
  • Safeguard

    Antioxidants including Fo-Ti and sesame seed help reduce oxidative stress in the hair bulb.
  • Nourish

    Extracts from wasabi, ginseng, soybeans and hops provide nourishment to the roots and promote cell turnover to create healthier hair.

    One of the best I have ever tried

    I took time to use this scrub a few times before posting a review. I’ve used many scalp scrubs before, including such brands as Oribe, Miriam Quevedo, Vegamour etc., so I can compare it to the top brands. What can I say - it is just great! It is not grainy, so grains are not stuck in your hair after washing. The consistency is smooth and very pleasant. Normally, I leave it for 15-20 minutes to allow it to work properly and do its job of purifying scalp. The outcome is perfect. I also use supplements and the serum. My hair now is down to my waist, and my hairdresser each time says that I have a lot of baby hair growing. I switched to this brand from Vegamour after comparing ingredients of the products in both brands. Arey’s products, especially, with auto-replenishment are more affordable and of beautiful quality.

    End of the itchy scalp

    About 10 years ago I developed allergies to all the face and hair products I was using at the time. And so started my search for a shampoo and conditioner that I wasn’t allergic to and that worked with my hair. At the same tim I developed a perpetually itchy scalp. I was skeptical that I could use these products. Not only am I not allergic to them, but my perpetually itchy scalp isn’t anymore. This exfoliant is so soothing!

    Must have!

    I love Scrub Scalp Exfoliant and must have an extra bottle or two on hand at all times in fear that I may run out. Sometimes, my scalp feels a little itchy after not washing for 2-3 days from whatever buildup has caused it and using this exfoliant always gets rid of the itch, leaving my scalp and hair feeling fresh. It leaves my hair feeling squeaky clean.

FAQs

Think of your scalp skin as an extension of the skin on your face. Your face and scalp produce natural moisturizers (sebum) and shed old skin cells. When old cells and sebum build up, they can clog your pores and restrict healthy hair growth. Your strands may appear thinner and your scalp could become oily, itchy and vulnerable to bacterial infections. Exfoliating the skin on your face is the best way to keep it clean and healthy. It’s the same for your scalp. Scrub is designed to gently cleanse debris from your scalp, leaving pores clean and open. When your scalp is clean and exfoliated, you can expect thicker, healthier, hair. Scrub is the perfect primer for topical treatments like our serum To The Root™.

Unlike clarifying shampoos which focus on buildup on your hair, a scalp scrub deep-cleanses your scalp to remove sebum and dead skin cells. Exfoliating your scalp with Scrub is an effective way to remove product buildup, reduce oiliness, and pore-clogging debris, clear flakes by washing away old skin cells, encourage thicker hair strands by unclogging your hair follicles. When your scalp is clean and exfoliated, you can expect thicker, healthier, hair.

If you’re experiencing dull hair, an itchy or flaky scalp, flat oily roots, and dry ends, it’s time to start thinking about your scalp health. You may be suffering from over-cleansing OR scalp buildup from under-cleansing. Buildup occurs from layers of product residue, dead skin cells, and excess oil on your scalp and can clog your hair follicles and lead to scalp and hair issues such as dandruff, itching, hair loss, and thinning. Scrub is designed to exfoliate your scalp to remove buildup and keep it fresh and healthy.

No, Scrub utilizes salicylic, glycolic and lactic acids to gently and efficiently remove oil and dead skin cell buildup from the scalp without the use of abrasive exfoliants. Scrub does contain a small amount of perlite which helps thicken the formula during use, but it is not shown to be abrasive on the scalp.

Yes, Scrub does contain the Mela-9™ Complex which is a combination of antioxidants, extracts and a clinically effective peptide. The Mela-9™ Complex is most effective when used daily and in combination with Not Today, Grey. When using Scrub, we recommend pairing it with Wash shampoo or To The Root™ serum, both of which contain the Mela-9™ Complex.
