In case you’re behind on the hair times, scalp scrubs are the beauty trend of the moment. nd a trend we hope is here to stay. If you haven’t thought of adding a scalp scrub into your regimen, here’s why you should.

First, and foremost, think of scalp scrubs as an extension of your skincare routine — it’s part of your skin, after all. You basically want to treat your scalp the same way you do your face, so it makes perfect sense to exfoliate. Not only does it get rid of dead skin cells (repeat, that unwanted flaky white stuff that shows up on your LBD!), but also helps to promote natural hair growth by stimulating the scalp.

Now, for the fun part that involves some retail therapy — our top six current favorite scrubs of the moment:

Keranique Micro-Exfoliating Follicle Mask $45
Did we mention that scalp masks also help prevent hair loss? Yep, it’s true. Keranique’s amazing formula is targeted to those with mild to moderate hair loss, as well as hair thinning issues. Infused with Keratin Amino Complex, it helps to “strengthen, stabilize, and normalize hair and nourish the scalp to promote hair follicles growth.”

Christophe Robin Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt $52
Christophe Robin has been a top colorist to the stars for over 20 years now, and it’s safe to say that we’re smitten over his haircare line — including this sea salt purifying scrub. Use it as a shampoo or a treatment when you need to get your scalp squeaky clean. Sea salt purifies and sweet almond oil nourishes. It’s pretty much the most delightful at-home treatment around.
