You wash your hair on a regular schedule, but ugh—that unavoidable itch. Maybe it’s the bucketloads of dry shampoo, maybe it’s the weather, maybe it’s that what used to work simply doesn’t anymore. But either way, it’s a sign that it’s time to pay a whole lot more attention to your scalp.
Malin + Goetz is well known for their uncomplicated take on skincare, but they also know that it goes well beyond your forehead. They believe in scalp care as part of the overall skincare equation, and that it’s the key to a great head of hair, every day. The skin-forward ingredients they use in their hair-care product line treats your scalp as part of the same ecosystem as your face for an uncomplicated approach to a hair-care-meets-skin-care mentality.
So, the product that should be on your radar? Their brand-new Detox Scalp Mask. But wait—before you say, “oy, scalp masks are too messy and too tricky to use,” know that this is a five-minute foaming formula. Yes—foam! It’s so easy to evenly apply by massaging in, and in five minutes flat, it deeply purifies and exfoliates your scalp to remove product buildup and excess oil and impurities. It’ll leave your scalp balanced, and your hair healthy and clean. Basically, it’s the easiest detox you’ll ever do.
Now, for the nitty gritty: The foaming begins upon contact to deliver a time-released dose of salicylic and AHA acids (we’re willing to bet those are two skincare ingredients you know well. See? It’s all connected) to detoxify and exfoliate, while fatty acid-rich oils deliver essential hydration to nourish and soothe.
Malin + Goetz even ran a clinical study on the product, where 85 percent of consumers reported that their hair looked fuller, thicker, softer and shinier, that it helped prolong days between washes and that the excess oil on their scalps was reduced—all after just one use.
All you have to do is massage a few pumps into your dry scalp, leave it on for five minutes and rinse it off. Then follow up with shampoo—to get the full effects, definitely go for the Malin + Goetz best-selling Peppermint Shampoo and Cilantro Conditioner. Their Sage Styling Cream is also not to be missed.
We’ll say it one more time, louder for the people in the back: Scalp care is skin-care. So, go ahead, get your foam on and feel that sweet, detox relief right away.
