Let’s admit it, most of us haven’t been putting much effort to take care of our scalp. Washing our hair regularly? No problem. Scrubbing our scalp thoroughly? Probably never.
Question: if our hair looks healthy and we have no specific problems to treat, isn’t it fine to leave our scalp as it is? After all, why fix something that isn’t broken, right?
But I’m sure we’ve all had one of those days where we noticed our hair starting to smell a bit off nearing the end of the day. Those were the ONLY days we reject our partners’ kisses on the top of our heads. Like the skin on your face, your scalp can get oily, which can lead to irritation and dandruff. Sure you might not have any scalp problems currently, but is your scalp really as clean and healthy as you think?
‘Cos we took a look at ours under the microscope and boy were we in for a shock!
The truth is, normal scalps may look clean and healthy just with our naked eyes, but when you use a microscope to zoom in for a closer look, you’ll see that the buildup of oil, sweat, and dead skin clearly clogs up the follicles. It also doesn’t help that there are even more impurities deposited onto our scalp these days, especially after the recent haze.
Just think about how all that ash and dust could stay within the follicles of your scalp for years – urgh!

Kérastase Fusio-Scrub: the scalp equivalent of an exfoliating facial
You’ve probably heard this skincare tip repeated to death: exfoliate, exfoliate, and exfoliate! Whether you want clear skin, fewer blemishes, or a brighter skin tone, exfoliation is a step that you can’t do without. Most of us forget that our scalp is an extension of the same skin on our face, so the same logic applies to our scalp. Without a good deep cleanse to remove all that gunk clogging up your hair follicles, our scalp health will be compromised and we may soon face problems such as irritation or even hair loss – nooooooo!!!
By now, you’re probably saying, “Ok, I get it. I need to exfoliate my scalp. But… HOW? I definitely don’t have the patience or dedication to spend 10 extra minutes in the shower scrubbing my scalp.”
Fortunately, we’ve uncovered a brand new innovation that deep cleanses the scalp and hair 2x better than a normal shampoo and we’re SUPER excited to finally introduce this powerhouse service: Fusio-Scrub!
Developed by hair care expert Kérastase, Fusio-Scrub is the first bespoke in-salon scrub service combined with essential oils to deeply cleanse the scalp and hair. With it claiming to remove 22% more pollution particles than a normal shampoo, we were shocked by how light and airy our hair felt after trying it for ourselves – almost like our scalps are telling us that it can finally breathe again!
Apart from its deep-cleansing efficacy, we particularly love how it is incorporated into your usual hair wash in-salon so you don’t have to stay rooted to your styling chair for a second longer, or wash the icky stuff off your scalp by yourself – sweet!
Before you sit back, relax, and enjoy the luxurious experience, you can choose from two variants of scrubs according to your scalp type, and pick any of the three essential oils to heighten the sensorial experience.
We know making decisions can be tough, especially when everything sounds so good, so here’s a guide to what and how you can choose the ingredients to probably the best in-salon scrub service you’ll ever get:
If you have a sensitive scalp and the idea of a scrub intimidates you, not to fear!
Formulated for normal to sensitive scalps, Soothing Scrub is a calming, gel-based scrub that refreshes and detoxifies your scalp, while giving your mane incredible volume and shine.
The jojoba seeds and sweet orange peel provide gentle exfoliation that makes sure your scalp is clean and comfortable at the end of the service.
We also highly recommend choosing this variant if you feel that life is too overwhelming – the uplifting citrus zest and dark, musky amber will soothe your mid-week stress and make things feel alright again.
Need something that will invigorate you much better than a cup of coffee? Opt for the Purifying Scrub, a sea salt scrub designed for more oily scalps.
In case you are wondering, sea salt is not used to season your hair, nor will it damage your mane – it actually works as a powerful exfoliant that deep cleanses the scalp and removes dead skin cells. In turn, your hair root is lifted for more volume, and your hair’s radiance is strengthened for slick tresses that you’ll be proud to own.
Combined with the freshness of florals and a clarifying aquatic fragrance, you’ll definitely leave the salon feeling energised and eager to take on the day.
No luxurious salon experience is complete without the addition of essential oils.
Whether you want something that can soothe & calm your senses (Sandalwood), uplift your mind & mood (Peppermint), or one that will jolt your spirit (Ginger), there’s surely something for you.
