If your New Year’s beauty resolutions for 2018 include focusing on healthy hair, then you might want to get to the root of the issue by addressing your scalp.

Scalp care is becoming an increasingly mainstream trend, with brands dreaming up progressively more innovative ways to keep the skin on our heads in tiptop condition. Here are some of the newest on the market.


1. Drybar On The Rocks Clarifying Charcoal Shampoo, S$37

A good clarifying shampoo is one of the easiest ways to cleanse both the hair and the scalp of product buildup, leaving your skin feeling squeaky clean. Drybar’s new On The Rocks Clarifying Charcoal Shampoo includes activated charcoal to draw out dirt and impurities. 

Available at Nordstrom online.


2. Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Biotin Dry Shampoo​, S$39.50

Give your scalp a January detox with Briogeo’s Scalp Revival Charcoal + Biotin Dry Shampoo, designed to absorb excess oil at the root of the hair while normalising oil production at the scalp, thanks to the inclusion of Witch Hazel. 

Available at Lookfantastic online.




3. MoroccanOil Dry Scalp Treatment​, S$61

Argan oil and lavender and geranium essential oils combine to soothe dry, itchy skin in MoroccanOil’s Dry Scalp Treatment, while Salicylic acid offers the exfoliation needed to combat flakiness. The product also claims to improve circulation at root level. 

Available at Lazada.


4. Dphue Apple Cider Vinegar Scalp Scrub, US$38

Blast away any irritating product residue left over from the party season with Dphue’s Apple Cider Vinegar Scalp Scrub, formulated with Pink Himalayan Sea Salt to exfoliate the skin and rebalance pH levels.

5. Christophe Robin​ Hydrating Leave-In Mist with Aloe Vera, US$43 

Luxury haircare brand Christophe Robin’s purifying sea salt scrub is one of the best-known scalp scrubs on the market, but it recently developed a softer way to soothe the skin, in the form of its Hydrating Leave-In Mist with Aloe Vera, which claims to restore the scalp’s comfort.
