The Aveda Pramāsana Scalp Care line is designed to cleanse the scalp like skin, shampoo actually cleans the hair and not the scalp, as it is skin. When I heard about the Pramāsana Scalp Care line I had to give it a try because as well all know I have dry skin and on the scalp it’s actually eczema. So is the Pramāsana Scalp Care a line you should invest in? Let’s find out!
Aveda Pramāsana Purifying Scalp Cleanser
Size: 5 oz.
Claims: Cleanses & Purifies the Scalp | Exfoliates the Scalp | Balances the Scalp | Protects the Scalp | Preserves the Scalp
The Aveda Pramāsana Purifying Scalp Cleanser has salicylic acid made from babassu oil and wintergreen to exfoliate the scalp and help balance sebum levels. You use the Purifying Scalp Cleanser by applying a thin layer to a wet or dry scalp, massaging it in, rinsing it out, and then following with shampoo. I have used several kinds of pre-shampoo products, most aimed at helping the dandruff on my scalp, and so far this is the best one that I’ve tried. My scalp felt very clean before the shampoo and the amount of dandruff that my scalp produced over the next few days was far less than normal.

Aveda Pramāsana Protective Scalp Concentrate
Size: 2.5 oz.
Claims: Balance Sebum Levels | Penetrates the Scalp to Nourish | Protects from Pollution and Free Radicals | Soothes the Scalp | Maintains Purity at Root of Hair
The Aveda Pramāsana Protective Scalp Concentrate is a serum that contains seaweed extract to control sebum levels, lactobacillus to help the scalp’s natural barrier, and anti-oxidant tamanu oil to protect the scalp. These ingredients go beneath the scalp’s surface to help preserve and protect it. This is done by applying the lightweight serum to the scalp in 5 sections with the dropper, massaging it in, and then NOT rinsing it out.
The dropper gave me a little bit of trouble at first because I couldn’t tell how much I was putting in each section. However, I found that the best way for me to apply the Protective Scalp Concentrate was to drop a bit of the product onto my fingertips and then apply to the scalp and massage in. I also found that I have to apply this out of the shower as I have a natural instinct to try to rinse it out. As for how it performed, my scalp has felt healthier since I’ve started using it, however, I can’t tell if it’s protecting it from anything or not. I guess I’d have to ask my most recent hair dresser…one of my Cosmetology school classmates (haha).

Aveda Pramāsana Scalp Care: Final Thoughts
Should you purchase the Aveda Pramāsana Scalp Care products? That depends on how your scalp is. If you have a relatively “normal” scalp that doesn’t give you a lot of trouble then you probably don’t need these products. However, if you’re someone that uses a lot of hair products, sweats a lot, or has dandruff then you may want to look into getting one or both of these products. I actually stopped using the Purifying Scalp Cleanser after using it twice and I HAD to go back to using it because my dandruff picked up but my scalp just didn’t feel as clean without it. I have used clarifying shampoos in the past comparing the two it’s like the clarifying shampoo was a waste of money for getting built-up product on my scalp compared to what the Aveda Pramāsana Scalp Products can do!
