At blush we love the IGK Low Key Cleansing Walnut Scalp Scrub. Low Key is a nutrient-dense, sulfate free cooling scrub designed to eliminate impurities. It soothes and purifies your scalp after you have over indulged in heat styling and coloring. Your hair will also look shinier, softer and healthier. Apple cider vinegar clarifies the scalp, while walnut oil helps hydrate and nourish the scalp and hair. It also has a lather that helps massage the sugar granules on the scalp to exfoliate. It also includes peppermint oil to rebalance the ph of the scalp. Grab a bottle or add the treatment to your next service!
