Cleansing, moisturizing, and masking are just a few (of the many) steps in my skincare routine—things I would never think to skip—but somehow, I’ve never really had the same mindset when it comes to my scalp, which is skin, too, people! I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older, more stressed, or just haven’t been to the salon in months, but my head is in desperate need of some TLC, and it finally has my attention.
If I want healthy, strong hair, my scalp needs to be healthy sans any buildup from excess sebum, dead skin cells, pollutants, or products. Which means I need a treatment that can cleanse and exfoliate thoroughly to remove product residue, dry shampoo, and general grime. Scalp care might not be the most glamorous, but I’m willing to do whatever it takes to feel and look my best, and my co-workers feel the same.
In the name of self-care, two team members and I decided to test the Head & Shoulders Supreme Exfoliating Scalp Scrub, which is part of the brand’s new Supreme collection: a line of products aimed at providing long-lasting scalp benefits and beautiful, healthy hair. Formulated with ingredients inspired by skincare like argan oil and vitamin E, most of the collection also includes zinc pyrithione, which helps with scalp itchiness, dryness, and irritation. The shampoos and conditioners are also free of phosphates, parabens, phthalates, dyes, and ethanol.
