The Grooming Guru Awards 2012. Haircare Product of the Year: Davines Detoxifying Scrub Shampoo

davines-setoxggawrd12lReviewing haircare products is always tricky for me on account of the fact that hair is an increasing rare commodity for me. I’m fine with my advancing baldness but it does make road-testing styling products a bit of a challenge. To get around the problem I have a small team of amply-thatched helpers to give me feedback. My favourite haircare product this year, though, is one even follically-challenged guys like me can appreciate.

This Detoxifying Scrub Shampoo from Davines is fantastic for ensuring hair is squeaky clean and for keeping your scalp free of dead skin cells and in tip-top condition. Given that there’s some studies linking blocked follicles with hairloss it’s a good investment regardless of how much hair you have. With cardamon, mint and corriander it smells great too and a bottle is never out of my bathroom.

Grooming Guru Essentials: Davines Detoxifying Scrub Shampoo

Though it’s not specifically aimed at demi-baldies like me Davines Detoxifying Scrub Shampoo is an absolute brilliant product for the folically-challenged. It’s actually great for gently removing product build up and ridding hair of unwanted nasties but is also really great at removing dead skin from the scalp. Unlike many other exfoliating shampoos the particles are small enough to wash away easily and it’s also free of parabens and sulphates.

It’s no surprise that scalp health is so important to hair health – it’s where hair sprouts from after all. In the same way that teeth need health gums, hair needs a healthy scalp. So this shampoo is a great way to keep it free of dead cells, dry flakes and the grease and grime that accumulates on the skin during the day. Since it’s formulated with cardamon, corriander and mint it smells great too.

£14.35 for 250ml. For more info go to www.davines.com
