Product Review: Scalp Scrub

Using shampoo out of a bottle is now passé. We have shampoo cones, bars and lots of other hair care products that are floating around in the market. A not-so-recent pitch is one of scalp hair, which is separate from hair care. Here is where the differences lie:

  • Scalp treatments unclog the hair follicles, releasing natural conditioning oils and help relieve a dry scalp and remove all those nasty dry flakes falling all over your shirt and pillow. Plus, they stimulate blood flow in the head and neck area so nutrients can betterreach the scalp and nourish your hair.
  • Hair care is an overall term for hygiene and cosmetology involving the hair which grows from the human scalp.

Think of the head like a garden. Just as the earth needs healthy soil that’s nurtured through water and fertilization, the scalp should be free of product buildup and residue for healthy hair to grow. Traditional hair-care products like shampoo are designed to wash your hair, not your scalp“- read more here.

I live with 2 people who have either dry scalp issues or sweaty scalp ones. All in all, they need a good scalp cleanser so their overall hair health is maintained. And so I tried out the Naked & Raw Coffee Scalp Scrub from MCaffeine.

Here’s how the experience was:

  • The product is granular since it’s a scrub and is fairly coarse.
  • It doesn’t dissolve very quickly or completely water.
  • The texture is a bit like molasses and it’s easy to spread on the scalp.
  • The scalp and hair rinsing process becomes fairly long since the granules need to be thoroughly cleaned out.
  • Seems optimum for scalp that houses hair that’s neither too thick nor too long.
  • Keeps scalp free of sebum for a while but the hair also needs nourishment in the form of a serum or or a leave-in conditioner depending upon how much this product tends to dry up the hair.

I tried out the product on a person who has quite thick hair and the washing out process took quite a while. Whereas a person with a growing buzz cut was able to get a cleaner scalp faster and it enjoy the benefits of the scrubbing as well.

Overall this product was a bit too cumbersome for me and my family to be able to enjoy whatever benefits that may have been possible with continued use. What I did like about this is the glass bottle it comes in and it being sulphate-free. Ranging between Rs.539-599, this product does score well for being Value For Money and if you’re a coffee lover, the smell will keep you happy as well!

This product is available on the MCaffeine website, Amazon, Flipkart and Nykaa (click on the names to buy from the respective sites).
