What it is:

Our secret for a healthy scalp and fuller-looking hair, T.L.C. Happi Scalp™ Scrub uses a stable, supercharged AHA/BHA acid blend designed to rapidly break down and dissolve dead skin cells and styling product buildup while biodegradable and perfectly gentle plant-cellulose exfoliating beads sweep them away.

What it is formulated to do: 

Using a blend of six antioxidant- and fatty-acid-rich plant oils (including marula, mongongo, baobab and maracuja) and a quick-absorbing multi-amino-acid blend,  T.L.C. Happi Scalp™ Scrub keeps the scalp nourished, flake-free, and balanced.

What else you need to know:

Use T.L.C. Happi Scalp™ Scrub only when your hair and scalp are completely dry. Unlike our other AHA/BHA exfoliants, T.L.C. Happi Scalp™ Scrub is specially designed to work within a short period of time (10 minutes). After that time, gently massage the exfoliating cellulose beads through and rinse thoroughly for a minute or two before you shampoo. T.L.C. Happi Scalp™ Scrub has a pH of 3.7.

FYI: T.L.C. Happi Scalp Scrub™ contains a blend of moisturizing plant oils and hydration-boosting sweet almond extract, which gives this formula a naturally sweet almond scent that dissipates quickly. 

For 30 years, celebrity hairstylist Chris McMillan has worked with every recognizable head of hair in Hollywood. But he could never find a product to do what he wanted: bring hair back to its strongest, healthiest state. So he collaborated with his childhood friend who also happens to be the founder of Drunk Elephant. Together they created a line of hair care that focuses on the scalp—products that dissolve years of buildup while nourishing hair with coconut-based cleansers and shine-boosting amino acids. The rest just grew from there.

100% free of sulfates, silicones, essential oils, fragrance, dyes, and drying alcohols. Cruelty-free.

Wait! Don’t throw us away: We’re recyclable!

T.L.C. Happi Scalp™ Scrub 180 ml/ 6 fl. oz.


10% T.L.C. Framboos™ AHA blend Glycolic plus (T) tartaric, (L) lactic, and (C) citric acids specially formulated to rapidly break down and dissolve built-up dead skin cells as well as styling-product buildup in minutes. 

Marula Oil This super-absorbable oil, high in critical antioxidants and omegas 6 and 9, helps moisturize, add shine, and smooth the hair shaft.  

Mongongo Oil Rich in vitamin E and polyunsaturated fatty acids (predominately linoleic and oleic), mongongo oil is a soothing and super-moisturizing oil.

Cellulose Acetate Plant-derived biodegradable scrub agent that is perfectly spherical and provides a gentle physical exfoliation to sweep away the buildup of dead cells and other substances from the scalp. Cellulose acetate is an ideal alternative to the environmentally problematic polyethylene beads, the too-soft jojoba beads, and the too-abrasive crushed nut shells.

Baobab Seed Oil With high amounts of omegas 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids, baobab is intensely moisturizing for both skin and hair.

Passionfruit Oil Commonly known as maracuja oil, it’s used for its rich moisturizing properties and skin-soothing benefits.

Multi-Amino Acid Blend A mix of quick-absorbing amino acids adds strength, improves manageability, and gives hair a healthier appearance with visible body and bounce.

The Drunk Elephant Difference

We are committed to using only ingredients that either directly benefit the health of the skin or support the integrity of our formulations. We never take into account whether something is synthetic or natural, instead choosing ingredients based on biocompatibility. That’s why we focus on healthy pH levels, formulations the skin recognizes, small molecular structure that’s easily absorbed, and effective active ingredients that also support and maintain the skin’s acid mantle. But what we leave out of our products is just as important as what we put into them, so you will never find what we call the Suspicious 6™ (essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical sunscreens, fragrances/dyes, SLS) in our line. We believe that these six ubiquitous ingredients are at the root of almost every skin issue, and when they’re removed entirely from your routine—that is, when you take a Drunk Break™—skin can reset and return to its healthiest, most balanced state. This ingredient-elimination diet benefits all skin types and inspired the #barewithus🐘 Instagram movement, a collection of bare-faced selfies that chronicles the Drunk Elephant journeys of people who have found not only healthier skin but more importantly, healthier self-confidence. Learn More.
