Has anyone found the ingredients for it?
Anyway, just last week I used a new shampoo that has a mild sulfate in it simply because I am trying Vaseline on my ends which seems to be a thing again on this site so I recently jumped on the bandwagon. I like using it so far but sulfate-free shampoos aren't cutting it as a result. The new shampoo has tea tree oil in it as well as peppermint oil which I love but no acids though it does contain yucca root extract and prickly pear extract. Because I'm using that as a first wash shampoo, I've cut the Neutrogena out. I do think I need something a bit more exfoliating for my scalp; so this thread popped up at just the right time. I would like to try an actual scalp detox not another shampoo. I'm using growth aides, so it's essential that my scalp is clean for a "fresh start" every week. I've been looking around for a scalp detox product all last night and ruled most of them out. I did find a few alternatives that seem okay but there's always that one ingredient that doesn't make sense to me. I also noticed that these products are more on the expensive side. Most just contain salt or sugar as the exfoliant. I'm probably going to narrow it down to The Inkey List Salicylic Acid Exfoliating Scalp Treatment on the lower end and Kiehl's Amino Acid Scalp Scrub Detox Treatment on the higher end (which contains salt but has salicylic acid as well as other acids further down the list). I was close to choosing Fekkai Apple Cider Detox Scrub which has rice powder as an exfoliant, fruit extracts, and of course apple cider vinegar but I didn't like that it has sunflower seed wax kind high up the list because to me a wax is defeating the purpose. Some have oils in them like the Inkey List product which I guess I will have to accept if I buy and others had silicones which is crazy to me so they were immediately ruled out.
I received my order from Sephora which included the Inkey List Salicylic Acid Exfoliating Scalp Treatment. It's a little cheaper if you order directly on their site due to their sale but I had to get something from Sephora anyway (plus Sephora has free shipping). I will try it tomorrow when I wash and condition my hair.I'm eyeing Inkey as well.
I wouldn't worry about the acids being further down the list. Typical use level for salicylic acid is only 0.5-3%. Some ingredients can only stay near the end of the list.
I'm going to take a look at the other ones that you mentioned.
I've used it twice so far counting tonight. So far so good. It can be very runny though so I always have to adjust my nozzle and be careful applying it in the front of my head/scalp. I did get the Kiehl's salt scrub too but won't be trying it until January.I ended up buying the Inkey Salicylic exfoliator. I haven't used it, yet.
I just looked the bolded up and it actually has more than one acid to detoxify the scalp (glycolic acid, lactic acid and salicylic acid as well as niacinamide). Seems like a good one. The DevaCurl one that you mentioned has glycolic acid. I like that there are several options to choose from if you want to try something different.I usually use Cantu ACV Root Rinse, DevaCurl Scalp Purify Spray, and Pacifica Rosemary Apple Scalp Detox Tonic.
Gonna have to look into the Inkey one...
