Itchy, Oily or Dry Scalp? 5 Reasons to Add Scalp Care to Your Haircare Routine for a Healthy Scalp

Itchy, Oily or Dry Scalp? 5 Reasons to Add Scalp Care to Your Haircare Routine for a Healthy Scalp

A 4-product scalp regimen, the KEVIN.MURPHY SCALP.SPA range is packed with skin-loving ingredients that help with itchy, oily or dry scalp.


Have you been facing hair loss issues? This could be a sign of an unhealthy scalp. Excess oil or a dry scalp often leads to itching and other hair concerns such as thinning hair and severe hair fall. Studies have shown that these are the main hair concerns for men and women in Singapore after they reach their mid-thirties.

“A clean, healthy scalp is important to ensuring the health and growth of your future hair,” says Kevin Murphy, founder of the haircare brand. Scalp health has always been top of mind for KEVIN.MURPHY

With the new SCALP.SPA range, Celery Seed Extract is the key ingredient that helps soothe and hydrate your scalp. It can reduce impurities and regulate sebum production to help solve the problems associated with excess oil or a dry scalp that often lead to itching.

The SCALP.SPA range addresses many of our scalp needs with just 4 products! These star products are packed with a range of skin-loving ingredients that nurture the scalp back to health, thus giving your hair the radiant results it deserves.

We tried the products and give you 5 reasons to try the SCALP.SPA range for yourself. It’s time to address your hair concerns and achieve a healthy scalp by adding scalp care to your haircare routine!

1. SCALP.SPA uses the same ingredient in your micellar water to purify skin

We’re sure you’ve heard of Micelles. It is commonly found in your skincare products such as makeup cleansers. Micellar water is a skincare product that can help cleanse and tone the skin. This remarkable micro-cleanser has been cleverly utilised to create the KEVIN.MURPHY SCALP.SPA SCRUB and SCALP.SPA WASH.

Unlike harsh surfactants, micelles gently attract and dissolve impurities without stripping the skin, while unclogging, soothing, toning and cleansing - all at the same time!

Together with co-surfactants derived from sustainably harvested ultra-hydrating coconut oil, micellar technology gives the SCALP.SPA range its youth-boosting edge.

Vanilla Luxury Raves: Did we mention that the SCALP.SPA SCRUB doubles up as a body scrub too? Who doesn’t love a multi-tasking beauty product!

Plus, the SCALP.SPA WASH has a fragrant smell that lasts for days (or till your next wash). It must be the rose water.

2. SCALP.SPA cleans product build-up from dry shampoo, hair oils and more

Do you use a lot of hair products such as oils, sprays and lotions? Gentle enough for daily use or use as desired, SCALP.SPA SCRUB and WASH are the perfect antidotes to a week of dry shampoos and other product build-ups.

SCALP.SPA SCRUB is a unique exfoliating scrub designed to gently wash away impurities from the scalp and hair follicles to provide a foundation for optimal scalp health and hair growth. The secret to the scrub is a unique ingredient called Perlite, a natural derivative of volcanic rock tooled into a perfect sphere to carefully exfoliate the scalp and follicles, all while protecting scalp and hair integrity.

Once exfoliated, the scalp and hair are ready to be cleansed. Use SCALP.SPA WASH as a soothing post-scrub solution. It continues to love the scalp while giving hair new life. Specially formulated with micellar water and celery seed extract, the wash soothes and purifies the scalp, leaving the hair feeling clean and moisturised.

Vanilla Luxury Raves: We’ve all heard about the hydrating benefits of coconut oil. Coupled with micelles, these hair care products are perfect for our humid climate where our scalp tends to build up sweat and other impurities that clog hair follicles. Whenever you feel your scalp itching, simply use the gentle scrub to get rid of all that grime.

3. SCALP.SPA is suitable even for sensitive skin

Those of us with sensitive skin tend to be more careful with the products we choose to use on our skin for fear of flare-ups and further damage to the scalp. Fret not! The SCALP.SPA TREATMENT is a concentrated foaming masque designed to relieve a sensitive scalp and restore scalp health to promote healthier hair.

Powered by advanced propellant technology, its compounds have low photochemical reactivity. This allows for a rich, silky foam that can remove dirt and excessive oils.

What’s in it? Hyaluronic Acid that retains moisture for hydration and smoothing; Carrot Root Extract which is designed to condition the skin of the scalp and assists with the clearing of a clogged scalp; and Pro-Viron Mist that helps reduce climate impact without sacrificing performance.

Vanilla Luxury Raves: The silky foam is really easy to apply to the scalp. Don’t forget to give yourself a scalp massage while applying the treatment. Not only is it more relaxing, but it also helps improve blood circulation. This treatment makes us feel like we’re having an enjoyable hair spa day in the comforts of our own home!

For a wholesome experience, follow up with a KEVIN.MURPHY Rinse or Masque of your choice after the scalp treatment. These products condition and mositurise your hair, complementing your scalp care, and thus completing your haircare regime.

4. SCALP.SPA can be used to instantly relieve an itchy scalp

The more common reasons for an itchy scalp are dandruff and scalp psoriasis that cause flaking or swelling. The SCALP.SPA SERUM is a lightweight and fast-absorbing, leave-on hair serum that provides targeted instant soothing and balancing relief to an irritated scalp.

The serum consists of Rose Flower Oil which calms and soothes an irritated scalp, as well as Lavender Oil which helps to nourish and balance scalp health.

Vanilla Luxury Raves: The scalp serum is designed to give targeted relief for problem scalps, but is also gentle enough to use all over. Even if you don’t have severe scalp issues, you can use the serum to regulate sebum production and restore balance in your scalp to aid hair growth.

5. SCALP.SPA is a comprehensive scalp ritual you can do at home

While you could go to a salon to get your scalp professionally cared for, you could easily do the same at home with the SCALP.SPA range. The choice is yours.

Also included in the range is the SCALP.SPA BRUSH. Ergonomically designed to fit in your palm of the hand, this scalp brush gently massages and exfoliates the scalp. The ball-tipped bristles create a luxurious spa experience to complement the KEVIN.MURPHY SCALP.SPA  scalp care products.

In line with KEVIN.MURPHY’s sustainability values, the handle of this brush is made from biodegradable plant starch.

KEVIN.MURPHY SCALP.SPA new haircare products will be available in December 2021 on the WOOSHOP and at KEVIN.MURPHY salons around Singapore.
