For most of us, a haircare regimen consists of shampoo, conditioner and maybe the odd hair masque. But should your cleansing routine include an extra step?

Haircare brands are now introducing scalp scrubs into their ranges, with the formulas designed to remove product build-up and dead skin cells in the same way that facial scrubs exfoliate the face. Read on for a round-up of great options to check out now.

John Frieda's Detox & Repair Deep Cleansing Scrub

Hair in desperate need of a detox? John Frieda's latest product will have your locks looking shiny and new in just a few minutes. Ideal for anyone experiencing excess oil and product build-up, all you need to do is apply the equivalent of a tablespoon to damp hair, gently massage it into the scalp, lather with a tiny bit of water, and then rinse thoroughly. Follow with a nourishing treatment on the lengths and ends.

Vita Coco's Scalp Coconut & Guava Hair Scrub

If you've been overdoing the dry shampoo lately, it may be a good idea to invest in a soothing scrub such as Vita Coco's Scalp Scrub to clean and rebalance your scalp. Made with natural particles to gently massage away dandruff flakes, simply apply two hazelnut-sized blobs to the scalp and wet hair before shampooing. It has a very nice tropical scent too. Happy scalp, happy you!

Frank Body's Caffeinated Scalp Scrub

Just as an espresso shot wakes you up in the morning, Frank Body's Caffeinated Scalp Scrub really boosts the hair and scalp. Made with natural ingredients like coffee, rosemary, eucalyptus, and peppermint, the product has a great fragrance too, lightly scenting the strands. It also helps hair stay cleaner for longer.
