Healthy Hair And Scalp With SBC New Propolis Scalp Care

SBC Propolis shampoo and conditioner


SBC (Simply Beautiful Collection) best known for their skincare gels, have broken into hair care and in April this year launched  Propolis Scalp Care shampoo and conditioner.

When it comes to our hair, we often disregard our scalp, especially when picking out hair care products, but we should really consider it an extension of our face. By that I mean, our scalp is of course skin, but somehow we don’t always think of it in that way. Propolis Scalp Care is targeted primarily at those with an irritated, oily, or flaky scalp, but also, it can benefit those of us without any scalp concerns. When used as maintenance it can help prevent the occurrence of any irritation, sensitivity or tendency to become greasy. The products are perfect for all types of hair, including coloured and are suitable for daily use.

“The Propolis fragrance isn’t for everyone, but If you like a honey scent, you’ll love the intense, almost medicated fragrance”

Ingredients include Royal jelly and pro vitamin B5. Royal Jelly has a proven track record in improving hair health and is rich in vitamins, minerals and amino acids which rejuvenate and hydrate the hair. Follicles are de-clogged allowing moisture to revitalise the hair shaft.

Take a lesson from bees – feed your hair with this remarkable ingredient and you’ll soon be reaping the benefits.

I would say both my hair and scalp are in the “normal” bracket. However, I do notice the odd flake or two along my parting which show themselves more frequently than I’d like –  so I couldn’t wait to try this duo. For me, the Propolis scent was part of the attraction, not to mention all the goodness inside the bottles. Cruelty-free brand SBC formulated their first hair-specific products without the use of unnecessary ingredients, keeping them free from parabens, silicones and SLS which is a real plus point.

When it was discovered that SBC customers were using their Propolis gel/shower gel to soothe and replenish the scalp, they decided to launch into hair care and Propolis Scalp Care was born.

Until now, I’ve only tried SBC collagen skincare so I was intrigued by this new launch. After having left my hair unwashed for a couple of days I was surprised at just how much lather was produced, even with the first wash. My hair felt squeaky clean and although I needn’t have shampooed a second time, I went ahead as my preference is to shampoo twice. Again, lots of lather and super clean hair. After blow-drying, I was pleased to find my hair soft, swishy and voluminous. Plus, had a lovely shine.

Propolis is rich in anti-oxidants and bio-flavanoids to soothe sensitive, itchy scalp whilst caring for the hair follicle and controlling scalp sebum production.

The conditioner is said to volumise and promote hair health by strengthening and softening. I found it smoothes through my hair well, but I must admit, I wasn’t quite so taken with it. I love the scent, however, I just didn’t get that instant softening I prefer from a conditioner. My hair is a pain to comb through at the best of times so I really need my conditioner to work for me. I have a fair amount of bleached highlights in my long hair which means it needs a little extra care. You may, of course, find a different result with the conditioner depending on your individual needs. In terms of performance, I’m pleased to announce – since using these products there’s not been a flake in sight! My scalp appears healthier generally and with the shampoo being a favourite, I would definitely repurchase.

What about you? Do you love the unmistakable Propolis scent? Would you consider trying a less harsh anti-dandruff or scalp care product? I’d love to know your thoughts.

    The Scalp Care is something I could do with and since I have dark hair any flakes are a lot more visible. I think all the product build up doesn’t help so a good scalp treatment even once a week is something I really need to invest in x

      Yes, that’s always the way with dark hair. Since I let my natural
      colour grow through any flakes snow up more like yours! Might be worth a try x

    Great review, I love all the depth you went into about the products along with your personal experience and about the brand! The shampoo really does sounds Fab and I would love to try it as you know I’m struggling with my scalp atm. I will have to see if I can get my hands on a bottle.

    Fantastic post! It’s so true that we rarely think about our scalp when we pick out hair products, so it’s great that these products are specifically targeted for that. I think I am going to check out that shampoo! It sounds amazing!

      We really don’t, I can’t think that I usually consider my scalp health. Yes, have a look at the shampoo, I found it amazing! x

    Love this! It’s such an in-depth post, these products sound amazing for people who have scalp concerns! Also love the fact that people who don’t have any scalp concerns can use them too! x

    You’re so right! Scalp can is always so overlooked as haircare is so talked about. I’m so glad you’ve found a product that really helps scalp problems as it is so important we look after the scalp too. Great post x

      So true, it’s not something I really considered but I’m definitely going to repurchase the shampoo. Makes my hair feel gorgeous! x

    I could probably do with something like this. I really like the Shampoo & Conditioner I’m using now but I don’t really consider my scalp, just washing my hair! I haven’t tried any SBC products so far but I do like the sound of them! xx

      We don’t tend to think about how our hair products affect the scalp. I didn’t get on so well with the conditioner but I’d definitely repurchase the shampoo! xx
