Description

Why is it that we go the extra mile for our skin but not our scalp? This non-drying scrub removes flakes, product build-up, excess sebum, and hard water deposits from the scalp, giving you a cleaner canvas through gentle exfoliation. I formulated this with a sugar complex to keep natural moisture intact.

How to:
1. Wet your hair. Use the pointed tip to part your hair and apply scrub directly on the scalp.
2. Gently massage the scrub in small circles.*
3. Rinse well. Then follow with shampoo and conditioner.
*Don't use if your scalp has cracks or open sores... it won't feel good.
Tip: this is gentle enough to be used weekly and on a sensitive scalp."

Contains Zip-Up Technology (tm), our proprietary strengthening complex designed to "zip-up" split ends while targeting weak areas of the hair, smoothing the appearance of damaged cuticles and helping to protect hair from environmental stressors and color fade.

Q: I see some reviews saying there is glitter in the product. Why is this not indicated on the outside of the bottle? Why would you put glitter in a hair scrub? Doesn't that just result in tiny pieces of plastic washing down the drain?

submitted by sensitivecalculator1312 - 2 years ago
  • A: Hello! Thanks for your question. Our Scalp Scrub was originally formulated with glitter for the aesthetic but it has since been removed from the formula.

Did not exfoliate my scalp whatsoever. Still had the buildup after my shower. My glycolic acid works better. Will be returning (I have dry scalp with lots of flake build up, I exfoliate my scalp then use a moisturizing shampoo) Also it has such a thick consistency it feels almost like a body scrub and it’s so easy to use more than you need

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Kristin Ess scalp scrub is supposed to cleanse your scalp/hair of product buildup. I love this idea so was excited to try. The packaging is nice . The scrub comes out of a pointed tip so you may apply directly to scalp. My problem with the scrub was that both times using, massive amounts of my hair was coming out. It also left my hair severely tangled. I will not use again. 2 stars for scent and packaging.

I've been struggling with a lot of buildup on my scalp and oh my gosh this product just made me feel so clean! It's an exfoliating scrub like you would use on your body but for your head. I wouldn't recommend if you have a really sensitive scalp because it is pretty rough feeling. My head as never felt so clean

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am so happy with the Kristen ess scalp scrub i highly recommend to anyone especially if you have a issue with dandruff. I was really skeptical at first because I have used different brands and the dandruff came back within a day but I caught a break when I used this scalp scrub and shampoo and it gave me a 3-5 day dandruff break. The only thing I had a issue with is that I have never used a scalp scrub before and I wanted to open my eyes (my fault) and the little beads got in my eyes on once and it takes a little longer to get it out of your hair but totally worth it.

Not Great for Thick Hair

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I cannot fully give my experience because I don't think my hair type is ideal for this product. With thick and curly hair, the applicator is way to large to be useful separating my hair. The product itself is so thick that i couldn't get it to reach my scalp and I felt by rubbing it I was tangling my hair.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This scalp scrub is so refreshing, it smells good, it's hydrating, it's exfoliating. The consistency of the product is like a sugar scrub you'd use for your body, but thicker. It's very dense, but I put it directly on my scalp add a little but of water and really work it in. After that I condition well to make sure it's all out. It is super soothing to the scalp.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Its ok but I really didn't see the point in using it. It felt like I put apricot face scrub on my scalp and in my hair . It was very gritty and to thick. Although I did like the smell of the scrub. It smelled like fresh spring deodorant to me. It would have been better had it been in conditioner format and not so thick so that it covers more of your hair especially for long thick hair like mine

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Didn’t love this product, I feel like more of the scrub got onto my hair than my scalp. It was hard to squeeze from the bottle, and the nozzle was much bigger than expected, therefore you expressed too much product at once. I wouldn’t buy this again.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This scalp scrub is no joke. It’s seriously like a sugar scrub for your scalp, I’m obsessed. Not only is the packaging beautiful but the product itself is. I use a little bit and massage into my scalp every few days, it’s so refreshing and relaxing. My hair no longer has that build up of product and feels so much lighter. It smells great too!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This was some pretty incredible stuff. First off, the bottle itself has a classt, elegant look to it. You can tell it is high quality. It has a slanted tip so that you can part your hair with it to apply the scrub on your scalp. It has the texture and feel of a normal sugar scrub that you would put on your face. It is thick, but soft. It feels just incredible on your scalp. I love the idea of getting rid of dry skin and buildup. I was also very pleased with how easily it rinsed out. This is a really great product and I highly recommend it!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love the Kristin Ess Scalp Scrub! It smells amazing. I really love the scent. It felt good on my scalp and definitely did not feel too abrasive. I used it first and then used the Kristin Ess Micellar Shampoo. Using the 2 products together made my hair and scalp feel super. clean but not stripped. I will use this product when I need to remove build up before I get my hair colored. I am very happy with the results from using this product.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I didn’t think this was appropriate for my coarse hair. There should be a label stating for fine hair only. I also didn’t like the texture. It just sat on my scalp. It did smell good but is otherwise not appropriate for me.
