Itchy, dandruff-ridden scalps are a literal pain. When scales build up on the scalp and can't be removed with shampooing, this is the scalp treatment you need. This supremely soothing ointment of coconut oil, candelilla wax and chamomile blue oil calms and moisturizes scalps while salicylic acid (formed naturally from meadowsweet) softens dry, flaky buildup so it can be washed out more easily. Anyone with a dry, troubled scalp will find relief after using this super treatment.

Cures my itchy scalp

Portland, OR | 1 day ago

My poor scalp gets pretty itchy from stress in certain areas and this will calm it down as well as the flakes it causes for a few days - so I use it about once a week and love it. First time I used it, I didn't apply it properly and it made my hair greasy - but after watching a video on the best way to use this product - it's a life-saver! I'd recommend looking it up on YouTube. But it basically using your fingers to warm it up, then massage it as an oil into your scalp with the pads of your fingers. And if you end up putting too much in, just add some shampoo to your dry hair, rub it into your scalp, then wash your hair like normal - cures the greasiness!

Smells awful, and WON'T COME OUT

Mountain View, CA | 1 day ago

To start, the only good thing I can say about this product is that any scalp issues I still have at this point are so resilient that I'm impressed by them. When I first opened the container, the stuff smells awful. And I mean truly, truly terrible. Like someone swallowed, regurgitated, and then barfed up an herb garden. Then, there's the fact that it won't come out. I don't know what is in this stuff, but I have washed it three times with three different shampoos, and even turned to very hot water in a desperate attempt to melt it out. Two days later, and my hair is greasy, stringy, and smells awful. With all that washing, my scalp is dry and irritated. This product is awful, and I couldn't recommend not buying it more.

Decent for a natural product

Phoenix, AZ | 5 days ago

My dandruff was BAD and I prefer using natural products so I gave it a try. I saw the reviews that it was impossible to get out of hair so I watched a YouTube video by a Lush employee. They recommended sectioning hair so it's easier to apply the balm straight to the scalp. Overall, this worked well at combatting my dandruff but only for a few days. I used it 2-3 times per week.

Just Awful

Burnaby | 6 days ago

The smell of this product is fine, the consistency is a little finicky to actually work into your hair, but where this product really falls down is removal - it is IMPOSSIBLE to wash out. I used it for the first time today, and while showering it out I shampoo'd 3 times because I could still feel residue. I eventually went "well, maybe you're supposed to feel it" and got out. Nope, hair was uncombably coated in literal wax. I then took another shower and washed my hair EIGHT ADDITIONAL TIMES with liquid dishsoap, and eventually had to turn the water up as hot as I could stand it just to melt the wax out. And there is still residue. So, I have now washed my hair ELEVEN times in 20 minutes, and it looks absolutely disgusting.

HELP! Cannot wash this product out!!

Vancouver | 8 days ago

I had really high hopes for this product, but unfortunately I cannot wash it out of my hair - and I have lathered and rinsed FIVE TIMES. I left the product on for 20 minutes then applied my shampoo straight to my scalp and left that on for 10 minutes. Then I emulsified with water, gave my scalp a great massage and scrub for another 3 minutes, then rinsed. I noticed residue so I lathered another time - still residue. I tried this another 3 times with different shampoos thinking I needed something a little different to remove the oils/wax - and there is still residue! Now upon leaving the shower as my hair air dries I can feel a very thick, waxy coating on my hair. Anyone have suggestions on how to remove this without completely drying out my hair and ruining my scalp's microbiome?

No more itchiness or bleeding

Toronto | 9 days ago

For the last year I've been suffering from dry scalp - my scalp gets itchy, emits large flakes and often i would find spots where it was bleeding. I would wash my hair and then a few hours later it would be so itchy and start to look dirty within a few hours. It was truly so frustrating because typically my hair is my feature i felt most confident about. Checked out lush for products that may suit me and this was just perfect! Once you massage it in, you can actually feel your scalp being soothed. Just after one use i noticed even after 3 days i am not experiencing any of my previous symptoms and now I can properly space out the days i wash my hair. I was skeptical based on some reviews but im really happy with this purchase. My hair is quite long and thick, but i can see why it may be too greasy for people with thinner hair. You also MUST rub the wax down to oil in order to massage into your hair.

Worst product ever

Singapore | 11 days ago

I shampooed my hair 5 times and still it looks like I did not wash it in weeks. It feels waxy and the amount of shampoo I have been using can't be good for my scalp. Never used a product that bad for my hair.

So far so good... and some tips!

Winnipeg | 13 days ago

I got this to help with my scalp psoriasis And so far so good... I haven't seen a massive improvement yet, but all products take some time so I'm not put off by it yet. I'm going to give it a few weeks before I decide if it's a permanent part of my routine or not. A lot of the reviews are negative because the user wasn't able to wash out Superbalm and had issues as a result, but I haven't had that problem at all... here's what I do: 1) Warm up the superbalm so that it melts a bit and becomes translucent... I scooped a bit into the lid and balanced it on my leg while I used it. It is much easier to use when it's liquid-y 2) Section off your hair so that you have direct access to your scalp... I found horizontal sections were easier to work with than vertical ones, 3) Massage Superbalm into your scalp, and let sit for 20 minutes or so. 4) Jump in the shower and shampoo it out... let the shampoo sit for a few minutes while you do other shower stuff (wash, shave, etc) and then rinse it out. Follow up with a conditioner if you want. I haven't had any issues washing it out when I follow these steps. Good luck fellow lushies!

The only thing that worked

Denver CO | 17 days ago

Long story short, I've tried everything I could think of to get rid of flakes and itching on my scalp. It got so bad that it was like a snow globe when I would take off my hat. VERY embarrassing and no shampoo/cream/oil/leave in conditioner did much for long. My boyfriend bought this for me and I was skeptical since everything else failed. The day after the first use I noticed HUGE flakes peeling from my hairline and thought "great, I made it worse", but those were the last big flakes I saw. The second day after the first use, I noticed I could take my hat off without any "snowfall" and it stayed like this for a week. Eventually I noticed some small flakes coming back so I massaged it in again and the next day I was back to normal, no flakes at all! I've used it weekly for a month and am beyond grateful for this product. It does leave your hair a little waxy feeling the first day after you wash it out, but I don't care! It works, smells good, and I can wear black and run my fingers through my hair in public again. If you have flakes, buy this product. It works.

This stuff is a life saver

St. Louis MO | 25 days ago

I see a lot of folks saying it's really hard to get out of your hair and it can be if you use too much. The trick to putting it on is to basically part your hair so you can see your scalp and then take a small amount and rub it on the part you just made and repeat aka "greasing your scalp". I also tend to let mine sit for a few hours that way it has time to actually soak in and work. Doing it this way has drastically lowered my dandruff in a few weeks.
