Getting the hair of your dreams starts with taking care of your scalp — there are no ifs, ands, or buts about it. Despite all the focus we put on curating the perfect hair routine, the reality is that without a healthy scalp, it’s pretty much impossible to achieve great hair. You see, a scalp that is in good condition provides the best possible foundation for strands to grow and thrive. 

That’s why it’s so important to give your scalp some much deserved TLC from time to time, especially during the colder months when dryness is already a top concern. Otherwise, you might find yourself dealing with an angry scalp and a whole host of hair issues like itchiness, breakage, and possibly even hair loss.

Fortunately, a number of brands have been turning their attention to scalp health recently, focusing on creating a slew of products that tackle a number of different scalp concerns. From shampoos and scrubs to intensive scalp treatments, we’ve curated a list of some of the best scalp care products on the market to help you show your scalp some love.

Below, our picks for the best scalp treatments and products.

Coco & Eve Like a Virgin Deep Clean Scalp Scrub

For irritated scalps in need of a deep clean, this Coco & Eve scalp scrub is the perfect solution. Formulated with caffeine to stimulate hair growth and peppermint oil to soothe itchiness, this scrub works as a pre-shampoo treatment that will help remove product buildup and gently rid your scalp of any flakes. 

Promising review from Ulta: Sarah says, “My scalp feels amazing—no more dandruff on my skin. The application is very easy. The brush you can buy is a real must! I love the smell and how fresh I felt after I used this product.”

Promising review from Sephora: Tracy says, “I have a dry scalp and this certainly helped clear up the flakiness. I used it daily for a few weeks and left it overnight and my scalp feels so much better! I tried on my eyebrows and wow—gamechanger. It’s my go-to product now.”

Aveda Rinseless Refresh Micellar Hair and Scalp Refresher

Refresh your scalp in between washes with this hair and scalp refreshed from Aveda. This lightweight liquid spray not only brings hair back to life, but it  instantly cleanses the scalp thanks to its no-rinse micellar technology.

Promising review from Aveda: Tricia says, “This works so much better on my oily scalp than dry shampoo. I spray my roots and then mist the ends with water (rose water sometimes). Now instead of having terrible 2nd day hair or washing everyday which fades my color, I can spritz, scrunch the curls, and go.”

It features a three-pronged applicator that doubles as a scalp scrubber to assist with cleansing braids, extension, and natural hairstyles. 

Promising review from TPH By Taraji: Wilson says, “Best scalp relief I’ve had in my life so far. Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp and this wash removes all you put your scalp through as well as preps it for your next treatments and styles.”

Oribe Serene Scalp Anti-Dandruff Shampoo

Say goodbye to pesky dandruff with some help from this Oribe shampoo which is formulated with salicylic acid to gently exfoliate and cleanse scalp buildup. In addition to soothing a dry, itchy scalp, this purifying shampoo also works to visibly rejuvenate both the hair and scalp.

Promising review from Sephora: Amy says, “I have tried so many different hair care lines targeting dry, itchy, flaking scalp and most of them ended up drying out my scalp further. I was super skeptical about this line especially with the price tag attached to it, but I’m so glad I splurged because I am shocked at how well this works even after the very first use. Ladies, it REALLY works. My scalp hasn’t felt so clean or been this flake-free in years. It lathers well and smells delicious.”

Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Tea Tree Scalp Treatment

Using a blend of peppermint oil, spearmint oil, tea tree oil, and witch hazel, this Briogeo scalp treatment works to provide relief to even the flakiest of scalps. Apply just a few drops of this soothing and detoxifying treatment for a boost of hydration and an overall healthier and cleaner scalp.

Promising Review from Ulta: Victoria says, “In the winter time, I get dry spots on my scalp and this has been such a great kept secret. I don’t wash my hair everyday, and this is great to use on my dry spots. You don’t even have to wash it out. It doesn’t leave my hair feeling heavy, and the serum doesn’t have a strong smell which is a huge plus.”
