Holly Willoughby often provides inspiration for our wardrobes, but with her signature blonde locks never fading, and always looking as glossy as ever, it's about time we discovered some of the secrets behind Holly Willoughby’s hair.

Luckily for us, the TV personality’s hair stylist has revealed some of the products behind Willoughby’s luscious locks, including a Hair Boss by Lisa Shepherd pre-shampoo scalp scrub to fend off a dry scalp.

Speaking in a blog post for Willoughby’s Wylde Moon, hair stylist and consultant Ciler Peksah revealed how she maintains the presenter’s hair through the autumn and winter months.

“September is always synonymous with wiping the slate clean – and you can also apply that to your hair,” wrote Peksah in the blog post about autumn hair.

“I absolutely adore this pre-shampoo scalp scrub for making my head feel rejuvenated,” she added.

“Used weekly, this product contains tea tree oil and rosebay extract to remove any buildup or dandruff from the scalp and hairline, and open the pores for fresh, new hair to come through.”

Why we rate it

The Hair Boss pre-shampoo scrub, created by hair stylist and consultant Lisa Shepherd, promises to remove dirt and oil from the hair follicle, leaving your scalp fresh and clean to allow new, glossy hair to grow through.

Designed to be used as a weekly hair treatment, the scrub removes the build up of hair styling products and dry shampoo to restore balance to your scalp’s natural ecosystem.

Boasting tea tree oil and rosebay extract, the fresh scent transforms hair washing into a spa-like experience.

The hair treatment is designed to be used on damp hair: divide into sections and massage the scrub into the scalp, including the hairline and nape of the neck, then rinse and follow with shampoo and conditioner.

What the reviews say

Whilst the opinion of a professional hairstylist – not least one to the stars – might be reason enough to give the refreshing formula a go, it's good to know that the Scalp Scrub holds up in the real world, too.

“Love this!!!” wrote one buyer on Amazon, insisting a little goes “a long way,” and leaves the scalp “feeling so fresh!”

“100% recommended!!” wrote another.

Yahoo Top Pick

The Hair Boss’ full range is also available at Superdrug, where customers were echoing the positive reviews.

“Absolutely in love, it made my hair feel amazing and it’s super soft,” commented one fan.

Customers loved the refreshing feeling and how well it cleans the scalp, but a few reviewers found the scrub formula very thick, which could be harder to apply to curly hair.

Parting your hair and applying with the fingertips directly to sections of the scalp could solve that issue, as would mixing it into your existing shampoo, but it seems you might not be able to use it in a hurry. Save it for a self-care session, and use it once a week when you have a little more time.
