We give our locks love on a daily basis but tend to neglect our scalps. Oops. With a slew of new scrubs, brushes, and serums in the spotlight, though, finding your dream treatment has never been easier. Read on to learn about three different products our editors swear by. (Photo via Getty)
Beth Wischnia, Beauty Editor: “As a dry shampoo devotee, my scalp needs a solid scrubbing at least once a week because the product build-up is real. Beyond that, my roots can get weighed down by sweat (thanks, SoulCycle), which makes my fine hair look oily and fall flat. IGK Low Key Cleansing Walnut Scalp Scrub ($36) eliminates any leftover residue and gunk while feeling like a light massage. The peppermint oil balances out my scalp while delivering a cooling sensation — it’s a total luxury, especially after a workout.”
Zoey Washington, Senior Fashion and Beauty Editor: “My hair is super fine — but I have a ton of it — which makes finding a scalp treatment that is oil-based (without being too slick) a bit tricky. I live by all things Jane Carter Solution, but the Nourishing Hair Serum ($11) has kept my locks shiny and my scalp moisturized for years. The lightweight, aromatic formula employs grapefruit peel and safflower seed oils to nourish and protect even during heat styling. I apply a drop or two every other day to reduce inflammation and restore strength at the root. I buy it in bulk — and I recommend that any women who have textured hair do the same.”
Sharon Tanenbaum, Executive Editor, Style: “I’ve never quite mastered the use of in-shower scalp treatments. Armed with the best intentions (and a healthy amount of product), I always seem to end up with more on my strands than my actual skin. So when my colorist and owner of NYC’s Fourteenjay, David Adams, introduced me to the new Aveda Pramsana Exfoliating Scalp Brush ($20), I knew I had found my match. Before I step into the shower, I only have to dry brush in circular motions around my head for the looped bristles to remove build-up and loosen other impurities. Nowadays, I reserve the scrubs for my body and face."
