Lush Superbalm

The Winter season is upon us, and for a lot of people that means dry skin. For some people, that also extends to a dry scalp, and that's where Lush's Superbalm* ($19.95/1.5oz)! This product is here to help soothe and mend dry, itchy scalps, and to help with dandruff.

Lush Superbalm

"Itchy, dandruff-ridden scalps are a literal pain. When the scale builds up on the scalp and can't be removed by shampoo, this is the scalp treatment you need. LUSH co-founder Mark Constantine is a trained trichologist (student of all things hair) and has come up with this supremely soothing ointment of coconut oil, candelilla wax and salicylic acid (formed naturally from meadowsweet) to soothe and moisturize scalp while softening and ridding hair of loose flakes. For anyone with a dry, troubled scalp. You won't want to use anything else." - Lush

Lush Superbalm

This scalp treatment comes packaged in a tin a bit smaller than a hockey puck. The product itself is a hard, thick, green paste. I scoop out a little bit, warm it between my fingers, and then apply it to my scalp. Since this product is very thick, it can be hard to apply directly to the scalp if you have long or thick hair. I try to apply it to as much of my scalp as I can, and I let it sit for about 20 minutes. You'll then want to use a clarifying shampoo to ensure that you're removing all of this paste. I like to use Lush's Seanik Solid Shampoo, as it's a great weekly clarifying shampoo. Then I'll follow up with a thicker shampoo or a hair mask (I've been loving Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle), and I'm done! 

My scalp does tend to get a bit drier when the weather gets colder, and this product has definitely helped to soothe my scalp! I use this once a week, but if you have a very dry or itchy scalp, you might want to use it more often. If you don't use a clarifying shampoo with Lush's Superbalm, your hair will probably feel a bit greasy. However, there are a ton of great clarifying shampoos on the market to choose from. Superbalm smells like lavender, and I love that it isn't too strongly scented. 

If you have a dry or itchy scalp, I highly recommend checking out Lush's Superbalm. This jar should last you ages, as you only need to use the smallest amount. Have you tried Lush's Superbalm before? What are your favourite products to keep your scalp calm and hydrated?
