After moving to the Philippines, my skin was horrible. I managed to spank it back to health. But, for my hair, I have not been able to figure out what exactly to do.

Moreover, I go swimming ( non-negotiable for my health and I do enjoy it as well.) If you are swimming, shampooing everyday can get even drying. But, since the pool water dries out everything,
the scalp gets too dry and the dry sebum, etc makes my scalp feel so grimy sometimes that I feel uncomfortable. Regular shampoo for me is not an option, especially, if I am swimming. But, I need to get the gunky feeling out.

Just when I was looking around for options, along came The Body Shop Refrehsingly Purifying Cleansing Scrub to my rescue.

Price: For 240 ml 800 PHP ( approx) which is around 1200 INR. But in India it's priced at 1995 INR.

What is this Refreshingly Purifying 'Cleansing Scrub'? My Experience:

I asked the store manager and even though they gave me all kind of advice, the gist of it was nada! But I concluded, it must not be used more than once a week.

Second thing, the store could not answer whether I have to use a shampoo before or after? The answer is no. Nothing.

Then what does The Body Shop Cleansing Scrub do? You can think of it as soluble coarse salt-like granules suspended in a thick shampoo solution. As you mix a little with water and start working on your scalp, the granules start scrubbing and dissolving at the same time creating a rich lather which cleans the hair without much drying. 

I use about less than a half tea spoon which gives me enough cleansing and don't feel like going with a second wash. So, I see my tub staying with me for a long time. Also, the tub format ensures that the last bit can be taken out.

I personally, love the scent of Fuji Green Tea Range which I describe as an unusual  but refreshsingly clean scent and this scent lingers in the hair.

Result of using The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Hair Scrub:

My scalp gets cleaned extremely well. The build ups get completely removed while my hair also feels clean, soft and shiny.  I usually go with a hair mask and my hair does feel amazing which reminds me that I should stop being so lazy and reach out for this one more frequently.


I liked everything. But what I don't like about it?

Price! Price! Price!

For everything it does, I wouldn't pay almost 2000 INR for whatever it is! I would rather pick it up from duty-free shops or from here in Manila or skip it altogether than cough up that amount.


Have you used The Body Shop Refreshingly Purifying Cleansing Hair Scrub? What do you think of it?

Until then

  1. never even knew there was something called as a hair scrub till I read this !
    sounds good
    but when it comes to pricing TBS tends to be on the higher side
    I too would think twice

  2. Not that I swim, but I have curly hair which gets dry so often. One thing I do when doing frequent washes is using conditioner to wash my hair.
