Can this hair scrub replace your shampoo? These are my honest thoughts.
Why we love this product
I am a heavy user of dry shampoo, so I'm always looking for a good hair scrub to really cleanse my scalp and remove all that product build-up. There are loads on the market, but not all of them can actually make your hair feel squeaky clean and soft at the same time.
That's until I was given the opportunity to try the Cleansing Purifying Hair Scrub from Christophe Robin. A hair scrub that's won countless awards from Bazaar and Allure? Sign me up! I was super keen to give this a go.
The quick verdict
Why is it good? It effectively cleanses your hair without sacrificing hair health.
How much is it? $69 for a 250mL tub.
The Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with sea salt is the perfect detox treatment for your hair. Not only does it cleanse and purify, but it also restores balance to sensitive or oily scalps.
As you may know, sea salt is a natural exfoliant, and it promises to seriously cleanse the scalp. Why is this so important? Well, doing so stimulates blood flow, therefore promoting scalp health and hair growth. That's a big tick in our books!
It's also formulated with chamomile to soothe and sweet almond oil to nourish and hydrate. If you're looking to cleanse your hair, without sacrificing on hair health, then this is the scrub for you.
I am absolutely obsessed with the texture of this product. It looks like a white glittery paste, but it's compounded with sea salt to give it that grainy feel.
It's designed to be used once or twice a week. Personally, I wash my hair twice a week, so I'll use this scrub as a replacement for shampoo every second wash.
It's really easy to use too. I like to apply about a tablespoon straight to the base of my head. Take the time to treat yourself and really work on massaging the product into your scalp.
As I'm doing so, I like to add water as this helps it lather up into a paste. This is key if you're wanting to also shampoo the ends of your hair.
Once my whole head is covered, I rinse with lukewarm water. You'll notice your hair feels really clean – almost too clean. That's why I like to follow up with a super nourishing conditioner.
How does my hair feel afterwards? Wow.
Because of all that scalp stimulation, my hair looks fuller and feels so much healthier. It doesn't feel like you are stripping your hair, it feels soft but oh so clean. I am obsessed and I cannot stop using this hair scrub.
Say adios to dead skin cells, hard water build-up, excess oil and flake – and say hello to clean, hydrated hair.

This hair scrub is also free from silicones, parabens and colourants, and it is made in a cruelty-free environment. It's advised to not use it in conjunction with keratin treatments, and it's not recommended for use after bleaching.
If you're looking to treat yourself, then this is the product for you. The Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Hair Scrub will set you back $69 for a 250mL tub. The price is definitely not affordable by any means, but there are more expensive haircare brands on the market.
Would I recommend it for the price? Absolutely, you're getting bang for your buck.
