What you see and feel:

Sensitive scalp or dryness that causes irritation, redness, and itchiness.




What is happening:

Exposing the scalp to toxins or extreme temperatures can injure the scalp barrier and dry it out.  While aging accelerates the breakdown of the scalp, stress exacerbates irritation. These factors contribute to imbalances and gaps in the scalp microbiome that lead to dryness, sensitivity, and exposure to damaging environmental aggressors.



How we address it:

Our scalp essence is a science-backed formula that uses pre- and postbiotics to soothe and calm the scalp while working to rebalance the scalp microbiome. It also helps the scalp defend against daily stressors and reduce redness and dryness-induced irritation, creating the optimal ecosystem for healthy hair.



Control dryness, flakiness, and irritation— for your healthiest scalp and hair.

We’re serious about facts. Ask away.


How do I know if Stress Reliever is for me?

We recommend Stress Reliever if you are experiencing any dryness-induced redness, itchiness, flakiness, or irritation on your scalp.

How do I use the Stress Reliever?

Using the applicator, apply Stress Reliever directly to the scalp in sections. You can target areas of irritation or apply to your entire scalp depending on your specific needs. Once applied, it should dry within 1-2 minutes. We recommend using daily.

What will Stress Reliever do?

Stress Reliever instantly calms and soothes the scalp while helping to reduce redness, irritation, itchiness, and flakiness caused by dryness. It works to eliminate irritation over time, so the more you use it, the better your results.

Can I use Stress Reliever instead of Hair Growth Nutraceuticals?

Stress Reliever will not grow your hair. But, it will balance your scalp microbiome, cultivating the optimal ecosystem for healthy hair. We recommend using Scalp Microbiome Support products like Stress Reliever Essence with your Hair Growth Nutraceuticals to optimize your hair health.

Should I use Stress Reliever on wet or dry hair?

You can use Stress Reliever on wet or dry hair. It is easily absorbed and dries within 1-2 minutes.
