I’ve been getting into luxury hair care brands recently. For a long time, I’d only ever buy drugstore hair products. While you don’t always need to spend more money to achieve powerful results, I’ve seen noticeable improvements in my hair since using more high-end products.
That’s where Mayraki comes in.
This premium vegan and cruelty-free brand is designed to effectively treat hair at home. Its products are supposed to help a large range of hair types and concerns, such as grey hair, hair growth, hair loss, itchy scalps, and dull hair.
But with many of the products priced between £30 and £50, they’re undoubtedly an investment. Are Mayraki hair care products worth the expensive price tags? I share my honest thoughts on 3 best-selling Mayraki products in this review.

I received the following 3 Mayraki products to review:
- Weightless Essential Oil Nutritive Treatment
- Scalp Purifying & Anti-aging Serum
- Camellia Sinensis Tea Leaf Probiotic Sea Salt Scalp Scrub
Below, I’ll share my honest thoughts on each Mayraki product before giving my overall review of this premium hair brand.
1. Mayraki Weightless Essential Oil Nutritive Treatment
£35.63 for 250ml
Any hair product that is “nourishing” or “rich” has me feeling worried from the outset. I’ve got an oily scalp, so normally these restorative moisturising treatments weigh my hair down and make it very greasy very quickly. My experience with these types of products has been pretty terrible historically.
But, I was pleasantly surprised by the Mayraki Weightless Essential Oil Nutritive Treatment. You can apply this nourishing scalp treatment either 15-30 minutes before a shower to dry hair or apply it after shampooing to damp hair for 20-30 minutes and then rinse it out. I applied it before a shower from my roots to the tips for a deep hydration treatment.
The product has a beautiful texture. It’s thick, silky, and smooth. But it still spreads easily, so you can easily cover the length of your hair without the product clumping in 1 spot. It also smells delightful with a floral essential oil aroma that’s not too overpowering.
To my surprise, this treatment made my hair feel more nourished without weighing it down. It didn’t make my hair greasier than usual either, which was a massive plus.
Ultimately, this hair treatment is not designed for my hair type. I didn’t see transformative results, and it definitely didn’t restore my hair from a damaged or dry state. Luckily, my hair is healthy and shiny, so there’s not as much to ‘correct’ from the outset.
Rating: 4 stars
I’ve enjoyed using this treatment and definitely noticed my hair feels more nourished after using it. Drier hair types will benefit more from this product than my oily hair, though.
2. Mayraki Scalp Purifying & Anti-aging Serum
£43.55 for 200ml
The Mayraki Scalp Purifying & Anti-aging Serum is designed to deeply cleanse the scalp, get rid of product build-up, and leave hair feeling stronger and healthier.
Although it’s not described as a shampoo, that’s essentially what it is. You apply a bit of product – I used the size of a 50p coin – to wet hair, gently massage it into your scalp, and rinse. A little bit of product goes a long way, as it lathers beautifully, so don’t go overboard and waste any. It doesn’t have a fragrance.
I like this shampoo. It felt lightweight, non-greasy, and left my scalp feeling clean and fresh. My hair didn’t feel weighed down or oily after using it either. Admittedly, I don’t use a tonne of hair products anyway, so my scalp rarely feels irritated or like there’s much product build-up.
Rating: 4 stars
A decent shampoo that leaves my hair feeling thoroughly cleansed and fresh, without making my hair go greasy within a day.
3. Mayraki Camellia Sinensis Tea Leaf Probiotic Sea Salt Scalp Scrub
£30.88 for 300ml
I don’t tend to find that scalp scrubs do much for me. They normally boast bold claims like they’re going to transform my hair, but I can’t usually tell much difference after using them.
But I actually like the Mayraki Camellia Sinensis Tea Leaf Probiotic Sea Salt Scalp Scrub.
Firstly, it smells amazing. It has a sweet floral aroma that’s uplifting.
I also love the texture. It’s not gritty or grainy, which means the product doesn’t disintegrate as soon as you’ve applied. I’ve used a lot of scalp scrubs that just break apart as soon as you pick them up, which is wasteful and messy. But this Mayraki scalp scrub holds form. You apply it to wet hair and rinse. And it rinses without any trouble whatsoever.
Despite being an exfoliator, this scrub is surprisingly hydrating. It didn’t feel harsh on my scalp at all. After using it, my scalp felt fresher, nourished, and cleaner. I also think this contributed to my hair not feeling as greasy as usual.
Rating: 4 stars
I really enjoy using this scalp scrub.
Are Mayraki hair products worth it? Honest review
Overall, I’ve had a good experience with the Mayraki products. They all contribute to my hair feeling healthy, non-oily, and hydrated. I’d personally love it if these products made my hair feel thicker and more voluminous, as these are qualities I appreciate for my oily scalp.
Brand rating: 4 stars
I really like these products but they’ve not transformed my hair. They’re pricey too, and I wouldn’t describe them as “holy grail” products. But I definitely don’t think you’ll be disappointed if you try them. People with dry or damaged hair, or those who use styling products frequently and experience product build-up, will benefit from Mayraki hair treatments the most.
