Who really Needs a Scalp Peel?

They seem to be becoming the latest trend product in hair care. Almost weekly new ones come onto the market. Another clever marketing move? Or really a must for beautiful hair? I am a bit confused. With a feeling of dryness and dandruff, I personally still see a certain sense in it, but does a healthy scalp really need to be peeled regularly? Peelings are sufficiently known for face and body. Through gentle rubbing, dead skin flakes are dissolved and blood circulation is stimulated. The effects on the scalp should be exactly the same: deep cleansing, increased blood circulation and supply of care ingredients. Why deep cleaning? Isn’t a shampoo enough? The answer: Not always, because dirt and dead cells accumulate on the scalp, as well as residues of styling products. Together with silicone from shampoos and other care, they can cause so-called build-ups on the base and hair. They weigh the hair and flatten it. Scrubs dissolve such build-ups. The effect: The pores of the scalp can breathe again and active ingredients can be absorbed better. In addition, the treatment is equivalent to a gentle massage that stimulates blood circulation. Just like the scalp massage at the hairdresser. What happens is that the fresh blood, rich in oxygen and nutrients, reaches the hair roots and thus supports growth. The scrubs contain additional active ingredients, such as anti-inflammatory substances such as tea tree oil, which are adapted to the needs of an irritated scalp. Minerals such as alumina provide the hair roots with nutrients. Avocado oil or apple extracts moisturize and are intended to regulate the production of the sebaceous glands. This, in turn, means that the hairline re-grease less quickly. However, the actual peeling effect is achieved by fine grains of sand, sugar and sea salt. Exfoliating shampoos, such as those found in anti-dandruff hair care, contain increasingly enzymes instead of solid grains. We know these from facial care, where enzymes are often combined with salicylic acid. But does a healthy scalp actually benefit from regular peelings? We asked the L’Oreal hair expert Stefan M. Pauli: Do I need to buy for myself a scalp peeling right now? It is definitely a problem-solving product. However, If you have no problems and don’t over-style your hair, you should prefer a good shampoo and a cure or serum if you want to do something good for your scalp.

Tested for you: John Masters’ Organics „scalp exfoliating scrub“

I don’t have any problems either with my hair or with my scalp. I was just curious and wanted to know what a scalp peel like that feels like on my head, which is now obviously a trend product. New ones are constantly coming onto the market. I chose John Masters’ Organics for testing because I like this hair care product line: organic, effective, smells good. First I take a close look at the ingredients of the scalp peeling: sugar cane and bamboo to remove deposits and flakes. Pumpkin enzyme and AHA fruit extracts contribute to cell renewal and therefore promote a healthy scalp. Finally, tea tree oil and wild thyme act as detox agents. They help treat flaky areas. So far everything is fine. The ingredients are right, now it’s time for the handling. Tough as honey The scalp peel is a tough, yellowish mass – almost like honey. Somewhat impractical because it is difficult to squeeze out of the tube. As recommended by a hairdresser, I take a small amount on each fingertip and apply it part by part to the damp hair. Start at the front hairline, massage first the sides, then towards the crown and finally from the neck towards the top of the head. Mix it with a little water and it’s easier. In the first test run I unfortunately got too much of the texture, which means that I had to laboriously wash the many peeling particles out of my hair. The grains are pretty stubborn. I don’t understand why this cannot be solved completely enzymatically as it has now been implemented in many facial peelings. No more grains are needed. But I’ve learned that you really need very little of the peeling to use. After the exposure time of about three minutes, I first rinse it out thoroughly and then wash the hair as usual. What strikes me as pleasant is that the hair and scalp feel noticeably clean. And I find that after shampooing, I no longer need conditioner. So far I have never been able to do without it.
