Exfoliation Needed: Give your Scalp the Treatment with these Brands
Meta Description: Don’t just exfoliate the skin on your face and body. Give your scalp the treatment it needs with these brands.
Exfoliating the face and body is a normal part of a routine for many people. But are you exfoliating your hair? Exfoliating isn’t just for clear and glowy skin. It can also make your hair glossy and your scalp squeaky clean.
Exfoliating removes dead skin from your scalp and prevents oil from building up. It also helps get rid of an oily head of hair and clogged follicles. Scrubbing will also help the hair grow. Many stylists recommend using a scrub at least once a month.
Below are some of the stylists’ favourite scrubs that can result in healthy hair.
Christophe Robin the man the brand is named after wanted to create products that fit different textures and would treat coloured hair effectively. The products were created using rare and ancestral resources such as lavender, chamomile and prickly pear oil.
The products can be used for both men and women. The treatments go in deep to the roots to provide it with nourishment. For colour-treated hair, they will also maintain the colour.
- Purifying Sea-Salt Scrub
Christophe RobinCleansing Purifying Scrub With Sea Salt
This is an all-around product. It is also a stylist favourite for every hair type and texture. It is made with seas salt to scrub away the dead skin and almond oil to keep the scalp soft. It lathers a little to help you cleanse your hair. It also helps with removing dandruff and build up.
The stylists also recommend it to rebalance the sensitive and oily scalp. It is also paraben and ammonia-free.
- Cleansing Mask with lemon
Christophe RobinCleansing Mask With Lemon
This is a shampoo and scrubs in one! The product is advertised as a three in one solution. It hydrates, exfoliates and cleanses the scalp and the hair. It is a low-lathering shampoo that also locks in the hair colour without ruining it. It has lemon zest extracts, St. John’s Wort and chamomile.
It cleanses the oil and stimulates re-growth. The lemon zest extracts have anti-fungal properties to keep the scalp healthy.
With over a century in the business, Shea Moisture has a long list of products. There is something for everyone. The brand uses natural and sustainable ingredients to make all of its products.
They were cruelty-free before it became a trend for other brands. They have pioneered fair trade using community commerce from both home and abroad.
- Green Coconut & Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Hair Mud
People that have curly hair have a very different texture in their length and scalp. What works for wavy or straight hair will hardly work for curly hair. This hair mud also acts as a scrub for women that use heavy emollients to set their hair.
DpHue is a colour fanatics dream brand! They have several products that are specially made to cater to colour treated hair. From fading, dirty scalp to roots creeping in DpHUE has a product for everything.
Their products also work for people that do not dye their hair as well. You can buy their products in Sephora, Ulta and even on Amazon.
- Apple Cider Vinegar Sea Salt Scalp Scrub
Seasonal changes very quickly result in a flaky scalp. The apple cider vinegar in the scrub can restore the natural pH of your scalp. The Himalayan sea salt that gives it the colour removes dead skin from the scalp. It is also infused with avocado oil and Aloe Vera for sensitive scalps.
Oribe is a cult favourite for many celebrities and as such has gained fame. This luxe brand lives up to its claim of revolutionary and innovative products. Every product uses top of the line ingredients and science to give everyone healthy hair.
It may be a celebrity favourite but even without that, it has a large fan base. This is because of the improvement many people have noticed in their hair after using their products.
- Serene Scalp Exfoliating Scrub
It wasn’t far-fetched to assume that a brand that has brought out amazing after the amazing product will have powerful scalp treatment as well. The serene scalp exfoliating scrub uses exfoliation beads for removing oil, build up and dirt. It also has AHAs and fruit enzymes that will give your roots a deep cleanse while the beads remove the dirt.
These are some of the stylist's favourite scalp scrubs. They fit for various kinds of hair types and textures. Be sure to give your feedback and share your experiences if you have any with the brands or products.

Skincare Trends of 2020: Yass 👍 or Pass 👎?
Hey there! There have been numerous skincare trends that have been going viral this year. Although just because it’s trendy, doesn’t mean it’s effective. ☆ ANTI-POLLUTION If you live in a city, you’re likely exposed to all types of pollution such as free radicals, UV exhaust fumes and even blue light screens are part of the problem (source: HuffPost). I live in San Francisco, CA and definitely deal with the issues mentioned above especially pre-covid. Studies have shown that those who live in larger cities age faster than their suburban counterparts and there is a correlation between air pollution and suffering from skin problems. DE’s D-bronzi and c-firma claim to fight against these issues. •C-Firma contains 15% l-absorbing acid and 1% Vitamin E which create a hardworking complex that help neutralize pollution and environmental stressors (source: byrdie). This product is one of my HG and I use this religiously. I have seen improvements regarding scars and hyperpigmentation and I think the anti-pollution effect is just a bonus •D-Bronzi contains raw cocoa powder which mimic the antioxidant benefits of vitamin D without the damaging effects of UV rays. I am not convinced this will do more than your typical tinted moisturizer with skincare ingredients. However I do love this product especially during the summer time. This also help me darken my foundation needed. • I love how my favorite skincare products contain anti-pollution protection, but I’m not convinced simply because there hasn’t been enough research. I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy products specifically for anti-pollution purposes. ☆ANTI BLUE LIGHT •My tinted sunscreen from Elta MD contains ingredients that can potentially protect the skin from blue light damage. •I honestly don’t agree with the anti- blue light hype. Research show that dermatologists are not fully convinced that blue light protection products will do more than a mineral sunscreen with a strong dose of iron oxide. ☆ NIACINAMIDE + HYALURONIC ACID •Both of elta and supergoop sunscreens I own contain Niacinamide and hyaluronic acid. •HA has been proven to plump, moisturize the skin and niacinamide has a ton of benefits to the skin. It strengthens the skin’s barrier allowing it to hold moisture better for prolong hydration •I am on board with the HA and niacinamide trend. Research shows that both of these ingredients are beneficial to the skin. Long story short, I am not on board with anti-pollution and anti- blue light skincare products simply because not enough research has been done. However, skincare products that contain hyaluronic acid and niacinamide is a different story! I believe those two ingredients are definitely worth the hype! If you made it this far, congratulations because I know that was a lot. Thank you for reading :) Francesca 💋 #CheriePartner
🌟💎 A hidden gem in cherie giveaway prize
This is my night skincare routine for oily, combination , acne prone skin. These products are so good and help me lots with painful acne around jawlines. 🧖🏻♀️I use #Senka - SENKA All Clear Water Micellar White[products]#[FiveStars] ove my makeup. I like this one because it has green tea in it and very suitable for combination acne prone skin. 💜 Next, I use TATCHA - The Rice Wash Soft Cream Cleanser aka the perfect winter cleanser. Even my usually oily skin likes this. It’s very gentle, smells so so nice and luxurious. Lathers beautiful but still creamy. It cleanses your face as it should but doesn’t dry your skin out during winter. 💆🏻♀️For acne treatment, I exfoliate withCOSRX - One Step Pimple Clear Pads 2x/week and use LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Adapalene Gel .01% Topical Retinoid Acne Treatment 3x/week but not in the same night. 🔥✨ Then we have this lovely moisturizer INDIE LEE - Daily Skin Nutrition I’ve tried many oil free moisturizer for my stubborn oily skin but nothing works. It’s always look dull and shiny in the afternoon. If you have the same issue this product is perfect for you. This moisturizer IMMEDIATELY sinks into your skin and keeps my skin hydrated all day. It makes my skin so soft, doesn’t feel sticky after applying, even suitable for sensitive skin. The only downside to this is it’s the scent. It smells kinda weird to me but will disappear after a few minutes. That’s all from me. Hope you like this post 😁 *Music: Together( Prod. by Lukrembo)
💖Creator Roundup 🏷 Cherie Made Me Buy It
Check out these creators profiles for their reviews on the cherie finds! @JadesJourney “I mentioned I was ordering a few of The Ordinary products a couple of weeks ago and Yay! they arrived last Friday. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 I purchased three ordinary products because of reviews from fellow creators 🤗 thank you creators, and I’m interested in organic vegan 🌱, cruelty-free products. My haul included…” @HilaryStrano “While I love this app for more than one reason, the biggest reason is how we can learn from one another. I am very open about my struggles with eczema, rosacea, extremely sensitive skin so on one of my posts someone left a comment about adding collagen supplement. So I listened and here's what I found.” @pastelpink_bunny “This mini set is incredible! It contains their five best sellers for all skin types✨” @madihomewood “💔I’m pretty bummed about this eye cream tbh, I was so stoked about the brand (and should mention that I have been liking some of the other products so far) but this one really was a miss for me.”
lily collins 🍷 inspired look
Have you guys seen Emily in Paris? I know its stereotypical, unrealistic, and kindofunfairtothefrench but... It was so entertaining. I binged it in 2 days. I also found Emily’s actress, Lily Collins, super pretty. She looks like Snow White in so many makeup looks, so I tried my hand at once. This is what she wore in the 2017 Oscars. Here’s a few tips for how I did this look! 🍷 TIPS 🍷 ￼￼￼Start the liner with pencil. And keep it in the outer corner of your eyes. The pencil should emphasize your upper and lower outer corners to frame the wing. I used my PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Eye Boost Gel Eyeliner Trio ￼￼￼Avoid felt-tipped liner. Ironically, that’s what I used here. The L'ORÉAL - Infallible Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner IS great quality and value. Its opaque and hasn’t gone bad with on/off use in 2 years. The finish is sort of shiny, and it glides on easy. Buuuut for this look, go for full paint liquid liner. It’ll make the wing more pronounced, and less likely to fray. The felt tip is great, but the ink can run low for this kind of look. ￼￼￼Use white + light eyeshadow to emphasize the space. This helps a LOT. It doesn’t look like it at first, but this look has shadow! I used the URBAN DECAY - UD x Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palettepalette. Take a color that’s your skin color (but shimmery) and apply it all over your eyelid. (I used the shade Bathwater) Put a MINIMAL amount of brown crease shadow at the outer edge (Anaheim). Do a bright inner corner highlight (Blonde) AAAAAND fill in the space between your black liner (Blonde). It might soften the black liner- No worries, pure liquid liner can easily go over it again. Still, using skin-toned / brighter shadow really makes the black pop! ￼￼￼Make your lashes biggest at the center. Guys I had to redo my lashes like 10 times. And I trimmed the ends a LOT. It doesn’t even make it across my entire lid, but that’s okay- To match Lilly Collin’s look, center the lashes. Opt for a frayed look like e.l.f. - Natural Lash Kit so it opens your eyes without hiding the liner. I personally like this lash set and glue. The lashes are a little fragile, but they’re comfortable. And I like that the glue is clear- You can’t see all the places I accidentally got it on my eye. 🤡 ￼￼Pick a lip color with sheen. Her lips aren’t fully matte in this picture. But I like that- they have a pretty glow. I went for a more berry looking color. The NYX - Soft Matte Metallic Lip Cream in Madrid is just as good as the regular matte lip colors. They’re not drying, and they’re super pigmented. ￼￼And finally, a subtle blush. I found that peach/ amber goes well with this look. Apply it to the apples of your cheek, and avoid the under eyes. This will make the eye area look more open. I used the BOURJOIS - Little Round Pot Blusher in Rose Amber. A little hard to swatch, but pretty and subtle!
