Natura Siberica Oblepikha Scalp Scrub Review
Here is one more review to finish my natural hair care series. This time it’s all about taking care of hair roots and scalp skin with Natura Siberica Oblepikha Scalp Scrub! I love Natura Siberica products and not just because myself and this brand are from Russia. There is no bias from my side here as their products offer amazing value for money. If you are after natural, effective and safe skincare, haircare and bodycare, but don’t have much spare cash – this brand is for you. Natura Siberica products have got good ingredients, eye pleasing packaging and work really well too. They also offer some unique products that I’ve never seen from other brands! Oblepikha Scalp Scrub is definitely one of such products, how often would you find scalp scrub among hair care on offer?
At first, I thought that it’s one of the products that no one really needs. But if you think about it, it really makes sense to use scalp scrub. Everyone always talks about the importance of skin exfoliation yet scalp somehow gets ignored. However, as some of us use styling products and have oily roots, we really should exfoliate skin on our head to remove the build-up of oil and pollutants to achieve healthy skin. So that’s where Natura Siberica scrub comes in very handy. It is designed to balance sebum production, prevent dandruff and stimulate hair growth. I don’t really suffer from dandruff, so cannot judge that point, but my scalp used to become a bit flakey occasionally. This definitely stopped once I started to use this scrub.
If you translate oblepikha from Russian – it means sea buckthorn and this scrub smells exactly like these wonderful berries. It has quite large scrubbing particles that are made from the cones shell of Siberian pine tree.
However, they don’t irritate skin and provide very gentle scrubbing experience. I use this scalp scrub once a week especially when I apply oil treatment on my hair roots. I apply it before shampooing, on wet hair and massage it for a couple of minutes. It lathers a bit, washes off very easily and really makes a huge difference to how clean my hair feels. It is very affordable, only £5 for 200ml tube and lasts really long. I’ve been using it for the last three months and still have plenty left. In terms of the results, I noticed that my hair doesn’t get as oily as before, doesn’t fall out as much and scalp is very healthy, no itchy feeling or flakes. So it is a really pleasant if a bit unusual product to use. As I mentioned above, I love to use it after applying oil on my scalp as I struggle to wash it off with shampoo only, but this scrub cleanses off even sticky castor oil wonderfully!
Oblepikha Scrub is definitely the product to keep in the shower and I am going to repurchase it once I am done with this tube. In the UK, it is available at CosNatural and you can get 10% off with my promo-code balance10.
