Korres Green Silt scalp scrubber is reviewed and rejected
Still, product build up and dead skin cells could interfere with healthy hair growth so it could be worth scrubbing before sudsing. Unfortunately, I don't think I'm going to be trying it with Korres Green Silt & Corallina Oligoelements. Although the product is called Green Silt, the ingredients list simply lists silt (muddy stuff found clogging up rivers) and a search on 'green silt' suggests that it exists only in the land of Korres. I do like inclusion of aloe, avocado and corallina officinalis (an antioxidant, as many seaweeds are). Benzyl salicylate may provide UV protection - so often forgotten for the hair and head.
However, there are many potential irritants that I don't want near my newly scrubbed and sensitive scalp: five parabens, phenoxyethanol, acrylates copolymer, the fragrances butylphenyl methylpropional and hexyl cinnamal, and phytantriol (an alcohol).
It seems tempting to use a handful of brown sugar or, maybe, Kosher salt. I'd love to hear from head buffers and their scrubber of choice.
