If you think you've got your haircare routine down pat by now, think again. Regular shampooing and conditioning are just the basics – when it comes to luscious locks and a healthy, balanced scalp, the key is going back to your roots with hair scrubs. Infused with natural exfoliators and follicle stimulating oils, these hair care products can help fight against your usual hair woes: scalp irritation, inflammation, greasiness, and even hair loss. 

And the best part? There are plenty of hair scrubs on the market for you to choose from. Below, we bring you the five best revitalising scrubs to give your scalp a much-needed TLC.

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Haircare Range

A blend of Japanese green tea, mint menthol, salt crystals and Community Trade honey, The Body Shop’s new Fuji Green Tea Refreshingly Purifying Cleansing Hair Scrub ($29) stimulates blood circulation while getting rid of impurities such as dust, smoke, sweat and the residue from your styling products. A refreshing yet nourishing treat for the mane, it leaves the scalp cleaner and more purified and gives the hair that healthy-looking lustre.

For that full Fuji Green Tea experience, pair it up with Fuji Green Tea Refreshingly Purifying Shampoo ($15) and the Refreshingly Hydrating Conditioner ($15). 

The Fuji Green Tea haircare range is available at all The Body Shop stores. 

L'Occitane Aromachologie Revitalising Fresh Cleansing Scrub

L'Occitane's new Aromachologie Revitalising Freshing Cleansing Scrub ($40) goes the extra mile to make your haircare routine an olfactory experience –not only it is packed with mint, thyme, lavender, grapefruit and cedar, the scrub is also infused with plant-based vinegar and natural sea salt to leave your scalp feeling pristine and your hair feeling lighter after one use. Use it as a replacement for your shampoo or as a pre-shampoo primer to remove daily build-up of sebum, oil and impurities.

Aromachologie Revitalising Fresh Cleansing Scrub will be available at all L'Occitane stores and in September. 

Kiehl's Deep Micro-Exfoliating Scalp Treatment

If you've got stubborn dandruff, Kiehl's Deep Micro-Exfoliating Pre-Shampoo Scalp Treatment ($54) is your best bet to get rid of those pesty flakes. Imbued with micronised apricot and argan exfoliators, it helps loosen buildup and trigger a healthy turnover on the surface of the scalp. Rosemary oil is used to add shine to your locks. 

Deep Micro-Exfoliating Pre-Shampoo Scalp Treatment is available at Kiehl's stores. 

Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub With Sea Salt

The Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub With Sea-Salt ($71.50) is perfect for those with sensitivity as it is designed to treat damaged, delicate scalp. It is powered by naturally-embedded sea salt while the renewal complex modifies and enhances the body's innate system, supplementing the scalp with optimum levels of moisture and hydration.
