Review | The Inkey List Haircare

Danielle Levy, The Inkey List, hair care, beauty blogger, Liverpool blogger, Wirral blogger,

We all know what a fan I am of The Inkey List's skincare products but you know when they came out with haircare, I had to get some to put to the test on my fine, highlighted hair. I decided to go onto The Inkey List website to try their recipe builder for hair care to get my own personalised hair care routine for all my key hair concerns. Two of the products the recipe builder recommended was the Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Scalp Scrub and the Salicylic Acid Exfoliating Scalp Treatment so I thought I'd share my experience using them both.

Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Scalp Scrub
The Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Scalp Scrub is designed to help remove product buildup on your scalp and leaves your hair looking healthier. It is filled with 7% glycolic acid, 2.5% symcontrol, 2% castor beads, and 0.5% bioecolia. The mixture of physical and chemical exfoliants help to remove any dead skin cells and product build up, whilst helping to balance your scalp's microbiome and help keep your hair follicles clean. This scalp scrub is gentle enough to be used on sensitive scalps and coloured hair.

The Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Scalp Scrub is £12.99 for a 150ml bottle so very reasonable for the price. This scalp scrub is an easy to use 10 minute treatment that you pop on before you wash your hair and it an be put onto wet or dry hair. I've really been loving the bottle for this scalp scrub as it's got a pointed applicator tip so it makes it super easy to get the scrub right down there onto your scalp. I've been using it on dry hair and leaving it on my scalp for 10-15 minutes whilst I've getting things ready for a bath or shower and it works really well for me, I tend to have a drier scalp so this scrub really leaves my scalp feeling fresh and doesn't feel really dry. I only tend to wash my hair about twice a week so I use the scalp scrub on every fourth time that I wash my hair. The thing to remember with this scalp scrub is to make sure before you apply it, is give it a really good shake up as the physical scrub particles will settle to the bottom of the bottle when it's on your shelf between treatments. 

Salicylic Acid Exfoliating Scalp Treatment
Compared to my skincare routine, I don't actually do all that much for my hair/scalp in the way of products so doing the recipe builder and trying The Inkey List hair care has really been a learning curve for me. Because I have quite fine hair, I always worry about putting serums into my hair and particularly at my scalp cause I worry about it leaving my hair looking greasy. Thankfully this Salicylic Acid Exfoliating Scalp Treatment is a pre-wash treatment so it tackles my scalp concerns but doesn't leave my hair greasy because I wash my hair immediately after using it. 

The salicylic scalp treatment is currently £11.99 for a 50ml container, it's filled with 2% salicylic acid, 2.5% fluidipure 8G, and 1% panthenol, all of which help to remove a build up of dead skin cells on your scalp to help balance oil and reduce redness and irritation. This scalp treatment is more of a gentle exfoliator so it's suitable for those with sensitive scalps, it gentle exfoliates whilst hydrating and moisturising your scalp at the same time. One thing I wasn't a huge fan of was the container it came in (I believe they may have actually have changed the container since I got it), I found it easier to pop it on my fingers then use my fingers to work it into my scalp. I've been alternating using this salicylic acid scalp treatment and the glycolic acid scalp scrub and this combination seems to work so well for my scalp, tackling all my scalp concerns without irritating my sensitive skin.

What shall I try next from The Inkey List?

Speak to you next time!
