Take a small amount on your fingertip then massage gently into the scalp – it’s not really for the hair so try and be careful to apply it directly to your scalp. Leave it for about 20 mins then rinse out carefully, before shampooing and conditioning.

Super Scalp Treatment
Itchy, dandruff-ridden scalps are a literal pain. When the scale builds up on the scalp and can't be removed by shampoo, this is the scalp treatment you need. LUSH co-founder Mark Constantine is a trained trichologist (student of all things hair) and has come up with this supremely soothing ointment of coconut oil, candelilla wax and salicylic acid (formed naturally from meadowsweet) to soothe and moisturize scalp while softening and ridding hair of loose flakes. For anyone with a dry, troubled scalp. You won't want to use anything else.
- Feeling blue? Chamomile blue oil soothes irritated scalps. The balm is actually a dull blue from the chamomile blue content!
- Suitable for vegans: With no animal by-products, this scalp treatment is suitable for vegans.
- Lovely lavender: We use lavender extensively throughout our hair and skin products for its relaxing, cleansing and soothing qualities

Q:It says to leave on 20 min, could you leave it on longer? Say...overnight? Or will that cause issues?Asked on 5/30/2013 by Sam from Newington,ct
A:When our product creators designed the product, they found that leaving it on for 20 minutes was the optimal time to get the most effect out of the product. Everyone one is different, but we do just recommend leaving it on for the suggested amount of time!Answered on 9/24/2013 by Anonymous
Q:It's so difficult to get this directly on my scalp! No matter how hard I try, it's mostly going on my hair! How can I really get it into my scalp so I don't waste it so much?Asked on 5/18/2013 by Katelyn
A:We know it can be a little bit difficult to avoid getting Superbalm on the hair, but we find that some customers find success with parting the hair in sections and then applying the product along the part line!Answered on 9/27/2013 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
Q:Is this Gluten Free?Asked on 5/11/2013 by SB from IN
A:Superbalm is technically gluten free; however, we do use wheat or gluten-related ingredients in many of our products, and our products are made in a facility where wheat and gluten ingredients are present. If there is a severe allergy to gluten, we could not guarantee our products would be safe to use.Answered on 9/25/2013 by Laura C from LUSH Direct
Q:should i use superbalm on wet or dry hair?Asked on 3/28/2013 by tally from CA
A:Superbalm should be applied to scalp when the hair is dry because it is meant to be rinsed out afterwards before you shampoo and condition. Take a small amount on your fingertip then massage gently into the scalp. Try to avoid getting it on your hair, as its benefits are for the scalp. Leave it for about 20 minutes then rinse it out before you shampoo and condition.Answered on 5/10/2013 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
A:I suggest using it on dry hair due to the oily nature of Superbalm. That way it has a chance to get soaked up and into the dry scalp. If your hair and scalp are wet, I don't see this product being able to work its magic as intended. I use it about 10-15 minutes before I know I will be jumping into the shower and wash it out with my normal shampoo (and conditioner later).Answered on 4/20/2013 by NouveauHippy from Los Angeles, CA
Q:How often may I use superbalm? Do you recommend using it everyday?Asked on 2/10/2013 by Kay48
A:It's best to leave at least a day or two between treatments to give your scalp a bit of a break, as well as a chance to take in the effects of the treatment!Answered on 9/13/2013 by Brandy from LUSH
Q:do you need to have wet hair to use this product?Asked on 1/27/2013 by m
A:It is best to use Superbalm on a dry scalp, as you will want to shampoo and condition to wash it out after the application.Answered on 3/8/2013 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
Q:I know it is not supposed to go in the hair, but some may get on my hair when I am putting it on my scalp. Is it safe for color treated hair?Asked on 1/25/2013 by Sally from Charlotte, NC
A:Superbalm does not contain any ingredients that will compromise color treated hair so if it does come in contact with the hair, not to worry! We recommend trying to focus on the scalp rather than the hair simply because it is formulated to treat issues at a scalp level.Answered on 3/19/2013 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
Q:Does my hair need to be wet or do I do this on dry hair? I got it for christmas and I dont have a flacky scalp, what should I see from this product?Asked on 12/28/2012 by Anonymous
A:It is best to use Superbalm on a dry scalp, as you will want to shampoo and condition to wash it out after the application. The product is meant to aid any type of scalp issues, whether it be irritations, dandruff, dryness or itchiness.Answered on 3/7/2013 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
Q:What's the main difference between this and the Snake Oil bar as far as results go? Which one should I buy?Asked on 12/12/2012 by Emily from Paris, TX
A:Snake Oil contains Cade oil (which gives it a strong campfire-like scent) and really targets the microbials responsible for causing dandruff. While Superbalm contains a number of ingredients to help soothe, moisturize, and calm the scalp, it does not contain the very effective (but a bit smelly) Cade oil. Also, Snake Oil comes in solid form and requires you to melt it on your fingertips before application, while the Superbalm is a paste-like consistency and can be applied straight out of the pot.Answered on 6/25/2013 by Anonymous
Q:I have a few questions. First, the instructions say to leave the product on for 20 minutes and then "rinse out". Do we just rinse or actually shampoo/condition?
Also, how often would you recommend to use this product?Asked on 12/12/2012 by Kathie from Tempe, AZ
A:With Superbalm, we suggest leaving it on for about 20 minutes then rinsing it out before shampooing and conditioning. We recommend shampooing and conditioning after use to ensure that there is no residue left in the hair.
Frequency of use differs from person to person, but we would suggest starting with once per week, and increasing use if need be.Answered on 3/7/2013 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
