5 Fantastic Oils For Your Scalp

May 24, 2024

Scalp care is super important and it’s something we’ve only realized recently. After all, our hair starts at the scalp, so wouldn’t it make sense that haircare should start at the roots? Scalp oils are the latest potions that are helping give new life to our scalps and root health. Enriched with vitamins and essential ingredients, these serums are a must in every haircare regimen. Here are four we love. —Jennifer Cox

JVN’s Pre-Wash Scalp Oil ($41) is a super nutrient-rich oil that nourishes your scalp for stronger, more vibrant hair. This concoction is brimming with sustainably sourced ingredients like rosemary extract and neem seed extract, and it promotes balance and strength for all-around healthier hair. It also works on all hair types, including those with dry, itchy, flaky scalps.

The Scalp Revival Exfoliating Mask from BKIND ($62) is formulated with all kinds of natural goodness such as fruit extracts, a biolipid complex, aloe vera, and coconut oil. This mask is practically magic: it helps increase cellular renewal while moisturizing and soothing the skin. It safely exfoliates dead skin cells without abrasion, and reveals smooth and revitalized scalp skin. And thanks to its moisturizing and soothing properties, this mask also provides hydration, comfort, and suppleness to the skin to help reduce scalp itching and irritation.

Lightweight and effective, The Ordinary’s Natural Moisturizing Factors + Hyaluronic Acid Scalp Serum ($20, available at Sephora Canada) contains several moisturizing factors that are found naturally in the skin to support scalp health. Hyaluronic acid provides scalp barrier function support while squalane provides much-needed skin hydration. It’s The Ordinary’s most-loved moisturizer now formulated for the scalp.

Aveda’s Scalp Solutions Overnight Scalp Renewal Serum ($72) is an overnight scalp treatment that helps defend against the visible signs of premature scalp aging while you sleep. It improves scalp hydration as well as barrier strength, and helps support a balanced microbiome. It can soothe an irritated scalp as well, helping reduce the look of redness and dryness. It leaves the scalp feeling soft, supple, and nourished.

Biolage Scalp Sync Purifying Scalp Concentrate ($25 at Ulta Beauty) is a gentle pre-shampoo treatment that exfoliates and clarifies the scalp from buildup, excess oil, impurities and dead skin after one use. Infused with glycolic acid and fermented tea, this pre-shampoo is ideal for all scalp types.
