So Fresh, So Clean 💦
Briogeo & their team were so kind enough to send me their Scalp Revival collection, which included their micro-exfoliating shampoo. I’ve tried the shampoo before in the past as a sample, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This has been a product that I’ve been meaning to get my hands on for awhile. The exfoliation is so gentle on the scalp, but 100% effective - you get a refreshing, cooling sensation as you massage the product into your scalp, removing dead skin cells, dandruff, and product build up effortlessly. There is a mild peppermint scent to the formula, which is quite enjoyable as it fills the bathroom aroma. Unlike some scalp scrubs / shampoos, this formula is easy to wash out. I never feel or see any product leftover in my hair, and it doesn’t require an extra effort in washing it out. 💙
Don’t 👏 Waste 👏 Your 👏 Money 👏
Luckily I did not pay for either of these products (chosen as my Sephora birthday gift)!!! I had heard so many good things and was quite excited to just be disappointed. Do only people with thin hair buy high end hair products?!? Because these WERE NOT made for ya girl’s thick hair. The charcoal scalp scrub was minty feeling but did no actual exfoliating by the time I got it to my scalp. I even sectioned my hair and applied it directly to the scalp and nothing. And the conditioner is so thin I just used it as a leave in conditioner and honestly it hasn’t done anything more than my usual cheap garnier leave in conditioner. And the prices are RIDICULOUS you guys. I expected hair miracles at $42/8 oz for the charcoal and $36/8 oz for the conditioner. I’m not a fan of making scathing reviews but you need to know when it’s snake oil peeps. Put that expensive ass tub down (yeah it comes in a tub that you definitely will get water in while you shower) and find some budget brands that work wonders!!!

3-Step to a dandruff free scalp- 100% Recommend
With this three steps my scalp is no longer itchy or full of dry dandruff. First let’s talk about WOW - WOW Skin Science Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo and Coconut Oil Conditioner Pack (500ml/bottle) Pack This shampoo is amazing, it eliminates itchiness and clears your scalp to get rid of all the dandruff. It also smells good and you don’t really need to condition your hair in order for it become smooth but because of the 2nd step you need to condition your hair, but make sure you don’t spread the conditioner at least 6 inches away from the root of your hair otherwise you might not be able to get the result you want. Second, let’s go to the step in between shampooing and conditioning which is done by Briogeo - Scalp Revival Stimulating Therapy Massager When you have foamed the shampoo in your hair, start massaging your scalp with this product. Get rid of all the itchiness and the leftover dirt and product that’s laying on the first surface of your scalp. Make sure to get every spot that you know would become dry and produce dandruff. I shampoo my hair twice and use this massager both times just because I wanna make sure my scalp is really clean also because it feels nice and refreshing. Lastly, let’s talk about the miracle that makes dandruff disappear as long as you use it correctly,AVEDA - Scalp remedy dandruff solution This product has a water like consistency. You spray it on the spots that dandruff and dry scalp appears on usually. You should use it when your hair is still wet but not soaked. For me the front side of my hair is where dandruff usually used to appear and so I spray a couple pumps and spread it around that area with my fingers gently. And that’s it. When your hair dries there would be no dandruff. One thing that I would say is not really pleasant about this product is the smell. It’s strong and not likeable so use some kind of oil or some other product that smells nice , but make sure to wait 10 to 15 minutes before you add anything else to let this solution sit deeply on your scalp. Tip: it says on AVEDA - Scalp remedy dandruff solution to use it everyday, you don’t really have to. I wash my hair every other day or sometimes leave 2 days in between each wash because I want it to get a little bit oily and no dandruff appears and my scalp looks as healthy as it could.
Weather changes causing dry scalp?
Weather changes along with stress, diet, and many other factors can have an affect on the health of your scalp. The Briogeo Scalp Treatment Briogeo - Scalp Revival Charcoal + Tea Tree Scalp Treatment is a dry oil formula with tea tree and charcoal to help heal and balance the moisture levels of your scalp! I discovered this product during spring last year when I started having dandruff for the first time since I was a kid. I imagine the weather changes along with increased stress levels were making my scalp super itchy and dry. I looked on the Allure best of beauty list for 2018 and this oil was there, so I decided to pull the trigger and splurge on myself. I am SO glad I did. I use this about every 2-3 washes to prolong it (it’s an expensive little bottle) and my scalp is happy and healthy through all weather and life changes. It has a strong tea tree scent and leaves your scalp feeling “mint-tingly” but that goes away after it soaks into your scalp. Since this is a dry oil, it doesn’t leave any strange residue on your hair or increase the frequency in which you must wash your hair. It’s like a hair product but just for your scalp! I also adore the design of the dropper to help angle it to hit the sides of your head! My tips for using this product are: -use it AFTER showering while your hair is still wet -use the scalp massager Briogeo - Scalp Revival Stimulating Therapy Massager along with this to help work the product in and disperse better! I used to just use my fingers which was fine but I found my fingernails were just too sharp and they hurt my scalp. The massager has silicone tips that won’t harm your skin! -store with your other frequently used hair products to remind yourself to use it My one complaint is the price. It’s $32 for 1oz. Honestly if it didn’t normalize my scalp as well as it has, I wouldn’t be here recommending it! It’s one of the few products I will allow myself to splurge on. If you are having dry scalp issues I recommend trying this out! I have to rate it 5/5 for my great experience with it!!
I’m obsessed with my Scalp Revival Line from @briogeo. I was in the need for some good haircare. With my long thick hair dry scalp is something that I struggle with throughout season changes, especially the colder months. The Charcoal & Coconut-oil shampoo is a clean miracle worker that smells like peppermint goodness & has the most amazing thick texture. I love the fresh, cooling effect it leaves on my scalp, I can just feel it doing it’s job. I’m also loving my Charcoal & Tea-tree treatment. I used to use Moroccan Argan Oil for my dry scalp & now I use this treatment. The only thing I would say about the shampoo is that you have to use an enormous amount for thick long hair. It’s better for shorter hair. Thank you for making my hair healthy again Briogeo!!🥥🍵 Briogeo - Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-exfoliating Shampoo

OLAPLEX-Hair Perfector No. 3
My Favorite Hair Products for Wavy Hair
💫 So one of my goals this year has been to embrace my natural wavy/curly hair and stop frying it into submission with a flat iron. The quarantine has really helped me on this mission but so have these these products! 💫 Amika Supernova Shine Cream Blonde- This stuff is phenomenal. I use this cream after I get out of the shower on wet hair. It weighs my hair down just enough that I don’t look like I’ve just gotten into a car accident, but still leaves a natural bouncy wave. This helps so much with minimizing my frizz and increasing shine and the purple tint keeps my blonde from looking brassy. 💫 Verb Ghost Oil- Hands down the best hair oil I’ve ever used. This makes my hair INCREDIBLY soft without weighing it down and helps a ton with defrizzing and adding shine. I’ll sometimes use this instead of the shine cream. 💫 Bumble and Bumble Hairdressers Invisible Oil Heat & UV Protective Primer- This was the first oil I ever fell in love with. It’s so light and easy to use...it almost feels more like a spray leave in conditioner than an oil. I prefer this one when my keratin is fresh and my hair is a little more on the oily/flat side because it’s so incredibly light. I love that in addition to smoothing frizz and adding shine it also protects against heat and UV. 💫 Verb Sea Texture Spray- This is only $16 and it’s my favorite texture spray of all time. I’ll use this on wet hair after an oil or shine cream and it really helps define my waves and lock them into place without being crunchy. I’ll also use this on like day 3 hair to refresh and touch up my waves.
For My Curlfriends! ☺️
// Products that saved my damage hair \\ For my curly/coily/wavy girls, this one’s for you!! I have 4B/4C hair, which is on the thicker, more coiler spectrum of curly hair. It can be prone to breakage, which damages my hair. I am ALWAYS on the hunt for new products to try because well my hair always needs moisture & lots of slip to detangle. That’s where Emerge comes in! Created for naturals in mind, they’re a brand new hair line that is found at Target (my favorite place + second home of course !) & these products are $7 each! I was skeptical at first, but I figured if I don’t like them, I can return them. Let’s just say I am SO SO happy with purchasing these products. This hair care brand has definitely saved my hair! 🌿 It’s Knot Happening Shampoo - This shampoo is freaking EVERYTHING!! It does not strip your hair at all, leaves your quite soft & moisturized (which is unheard of for a shampoo), & it helps to detangle my hair at the same time! What shampoo you know does that? I was shocked by how much definition my hair had once I rinsed out the shampoo. With two washes, my hair feels so soft & clean. 🌿 Smooth Mover Conditioner - Whomever made this conditioner, I literally want to thank them myself! This conditioner is AMAZING!!! I can’t even tell you how super soft, moisturized, hydrated, & nourished my hair felt with this conditioner. My hair seemed to absorb it immediately & BABY! When I tell you detangling was a breeze 😩 Like what!? Whomever made this magical product, THANK YOU! It’s the right amount of thick & creamy. I will leave it in my hair as a hair mask if I’m too lazy to use the actual hair mask. My hair feels so so lush afterwards ☺️ 🌿 Back to Life Hair Mask - I was very hesitant to try this mask, just because I loved the conditioner already on it’s own. I also am super hesitant to try masks; they can always be a hit or a miss. This one is definitely a lot thicker than the conditioner (I wish it were at least the same as consistency or a tad bit more creamier than the conditioner). At first I didn’t like it, but then I saw how moisturized my hair was after washing it out, which is a plus. A lot of products can have hydrating shampoo & conditioners, but the mask lacks so much! This definitely complimented the shampoo & conditioner. However, I would do one or the other, not both the conditioner & hair mask. 🌿 My Everything Butter Cream - This butter cream is superb! It’s very creamy, it isn’t too thick & I feel my hair instantly defines with this product. It does not weigh down my hair & I feel like it smells like roses. All of the products have a seemingly faint scent to them, which I’m very okay with. I’m sensitive to smells, & I hate products that are masked with fragrances. Overall, the butter cream is great for twistouts, or even to style the hair when needed ☺️ If you’re a curly/coily girl, try out this brand. You won’t regret your purchase 😁 *second photo is of my hair after shampooing*

HEALTHY HAIR AT NEXT LEVEL
Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair Mask: The claims of this product are - For: dry, damaged, chemically-treated, and/or lifeless hair. - What It Is: an intensive weekly treatment to restore essential hydration and enhance hair's resilience to protect against future damage. - Key ingredients: rosehip, sweet almond and argan oils with vitamin B5 and biotin So I have dry, damaged and lifeless hair 💀 and I honestly have never been influenced to buy a deep conditioning mask from any other brand until now. With this, my hair feels so much more hydrated and it’s not as rough anymore after more than month of consistent use! Briogeo recommends use for 5-10 min once every week but I’ve found that my hair likes use every 5 days! 😩 honestly i would use it every single day because it also smells AHHHMAZING 😳 I’m just praying I don’t run out of this soon or else I will be extremely sad 😔 Briogeo farewell frizz milk leave-in spray: This is a really nice leave in conditioning spray. When combined with the “don’t despair, repair” mask, my hair stays non-frizzy for the whole day! i’m almost finished my spray and i’m so sad because it was truly amazing. I’d compare it with the Kerastase spray I reviewed. The Briogeo spray is literally less than half the price of the Kerastase spray and worms so much better. Not to mention that it’s also a clean product. If I’d known about Briogeo before, I never would’ve bought from Kerastase! Briogeo is a hair aka lifesaver! ❤️ Briogeo - Farewell Frizz Blow Dry Perfection Heat Protectant Crème Briogeo - Don't Despair, Repair!
