No one needs to tell you that it's okay to feel exhausted these days. Whoever you are or how you're being affected by recent news, the deluge of straight-up awful events is hopefully a call to take care of your community and yourself. An on-demand masseuse would be the dream, but barring that, shoppers say one exfoliating scalp treatment feels like relaxing bliss — and results in silky smooth hair with ample volume.

NatureLab Tokyo's Perfect Shine Scalp Scrub has earned numerous glowing reviews comparing it to Christophe Robin's iconic Cleansing Purifying Scrub, but where the latter relies on sea salt, NatureLab's $17 version goes with a mix of pearl extract, platinum fiber, willow bark extract, and castor oil. The combination is both revitalizing and deeply conditioning, according to users — and nearly 1,700 people were so convinced, they left the scrub a five-star rating at Amazon.

Per reviewers, the experience starts off as a sugar-like scrub before segueing into a cloud of foamy, cleansing lather. If you haven't tried a scalp scrub before, imagine a million tiny granules massaging away dirt and grime like a mini head massage (it's a good time). One fan said NatureLab's formula even counters their "nightmarish" hard water, leaving their hair feeling "revived" and so healthy, it's a "miracle."

Speaking to its results, myriad customers mentioned just how shiny the scrub left their hair, even those starting from a baseline of flyaways. "My hair was immediately frizz-free," said a commenter, adding that their ends now feel so smooth, they no longer want a haircut. Another user was won over by the increased volume it gave them — so much so that they dubbed it their "favorite new beauty product" of the year.

At Ulta, shoppers are just as impressed: One person mentioned that while their oily scalp normally demands washing every two or three days, with the scrub in their routine, their day-five hair still looked fresh. Its effectiveness on dandruff and build-up is also magnifique, per someone who said they'd used "10 pounds of dry shampoo" and gone a week without washing before giving the scrub a go. A last testifier with box braids was similarly amazed: One use left their hair looking "so clean" and feeling "divine."

If you'd like to try NatureLab Tokyo's Perfect Shine Scalp Scrub for yourself, get it starting at $17 at Ulta Beauty or Amazon.
