Every scalp needs the occasional scrub—but a salt-driven product isn’t for everyone.
While we love a traditional salt scrub, some Mane Addicts prefer something a little less abrasive. From salicylic acid to old fashioned sugar to DIY versions, there are plenty of salt-free hair products on the market to choose from that deliver the desired results. And for those with drier strands or color-damaged tresses, a sodium-free exfoliator may be a better match. So, we rounded up the best of the best hair scrubs (sans salt) below.
Here are five salt-free scalp scrubs to keep your mane looking fab, without drying it out.
