Suffering from an oily, sensitive or itchy scalp? So many of us are ailed by the same issue, but struggle to find that cure-all solution that’ll restore the scalp and hair back to perfect balance. Thankfully, professional haircare brand Christophe Robin have come up with the answer — their coveted hair scrub. Keep reading to discover all about this game-changer.
The Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt is the ideal haircare product for anyone who encounters oily scalp problems, no matter whether they’re frequent or very intermittent. It’s also a must-have if you regularly colour your hair from home, as it’ll remove dye build-up and product residue for a healthier scalp.

Pre-Scrub: Before you start scrubbing away at your scalp and hair with this miracle product, it’s important to prep your locks. This is all dependant on your hair type, though. If your hair is typically dry, you might want to use a moisturising shampoo before going in with the scrub. We love the Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo for this, as it smooths the hair and adds shine. Some prefer to shampoo post-hair scrub, so give both ways a go and see what works for you.
Generally experience knots and tangles? Don’t forget to run a brush through your hair quite thoroughly before stepping into the shower with this one! This hair scrub requires you to really use your hands and work it into the scalp, so it may create some hard-to-tackle tangles if your hair is already a bit knotted.
The Main Event: It’s time to let this amazing hair scrub work its wonders on your locks. Hop into the shower and wet your hair thoroughly. Then, take a small amount (roughly a tablespoon, or a little more if you’ve got lots of hair!) and concentrate it on the scalp, massaging in. Work in some more water to create a lather and scrub for a minute or two. Rinse out the hair scrub.
Post-Scrub: This product can have a drying effect on some hair types, so ensure you’re conditioning well after use. If you have traditionally oily hair, use your regular conditioner. If your hair tends to get dry or is bleached, dyed or damaged, you could opt for a hydrating mask such as the Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask with Prickly Pear.
Use the Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt once-weekly or fortnightly for best results, shampooing and conditioning as normal in between uses.

Curb that greasy feeling and restore total balance with the Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt. The sea salt granules will gently slough away at build-up, product residue or flaky, itchy particles, leaving your scalp clean and refreshed. As a result, your hair will last longer between washes, meaning you can leave it for up to four days before any greasiness begins to creep back in.
This hair scrub also has a few secret bonuses — it’s a must-have if your hair is limp or lifeless, as the sea salt will help add volume that’s still manageable. It also gives hair a gorgeous shine, and is free of harsh nasties like parabens or silicones.
“As someone with normal/fine hair, it feels like I am forever searching for a product that leaves my hair look thick, full and voluminous….One use [of this hair scrub] and my hair is… incredible! It’s full of life, bursting with body at the roots, with a touch of grit that my fine hair doesn’t usually have. It feels so clean, looks incredibly glossy and there’s no adverse effects to report!” – Kate La Vie
“My holy grail hair care product at the moment is the Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt, which is amazing for deeply purifying and detoxifying the scalp and hair. What I love about this product is that it makes the hair feel so clean without drying the scalp, and my hair feels weightless, healthy with lots of volume.” – Front Row Beauty
