Briogeo Scalp Revival Collection: First Impressions!

Briogeo recently launched three new and exciting products as part of their Scalp Revival Collection: a shampoo, dry shampoo and scalp treatment, all infused with many beneficial scalp friendly ingredients, including Binchotan Charcoal. I received the products last week and used them all at least once so far, so read on for my first impressions!

Here is what Briogeo says about the new collection:
"A detoxifying collection of Binchotan charcoal-infused scalp therapy solutions that purify, soothe, hydrate, and treat the scalp."

You don't necessarily have to have any scalp issues to benefit from this collection. If you are looking for your healthiest hair possible and want to prevent future scalp issues, it is good to incorporate these into your regimen.

What is Binchotan Charcoal?
"Binchotan charcoal is a traditionally Japanese charcoal that is completely different from typical black charcoal. The starting material is ubame oak, a tree possessing great strength and hardness. The wood is heated to temperatures upward of 1000°C, followed by a covering with a moist mixture
of earth, sand, and ash to cool it. The resultant charcoal contains a variety of minerals that were absorbed during its life as a tree.
Because Binchotan charcoal has numerous small pores, it can absorb deep-rooted impurities and build-up from the hair and scalp. The highly absorptive quality gives Binchotan charcoal a detoxifying effect on the scalp."

charcoal + coconut oil micro-exfoliating shampoo
Them: This unique shampoo infuses Binchotan charcoal to draw impurities from the scalp and hair follicle to provide the foundation for optimal scalp health. Vegetable-derived micro-exfoliators remove dead skin cells and product build-up from the scalp to support a clean, balanced, and healthy scalp. A cooling blend of peppermint and spearmint oils reduces scalp itchiness and tea tree oil has anti-septic and healing properties that reduce scalp irritation and inflammation. Coconut Oil provides superior moisturization to the scalp to combat and prevent dryness and flakiness. Super-vitamin, panthenol, provides essential nutrients to strengthen the hair roots and shaft.

Me: My first thought was it is odd to see a shampoo in a tub that I typically see deep conditioners in. It's no big deal, except you just have to be a bit careful in the shower not to let too much water get inside the product. Scent is AMAZIING. It smells like straight up chocolate mint. So good!!!! I like to use this as a clarifying shampoo, once a month or so. I may try it bi-weekly since my results were fantastic. It didn't lather much at all. I made sure to massage it into my scalp and down the lengths of my hair to remove product build up. I was concerned the micro-exfoliators would be tough to rinse out, but they were not. Once rinsed, my hair did feel super squeaky clean. I didn't want to run my fingers through the length,, and it begged for deep conditioner and moisture. This shampoo really got rid of every trace of build up, toxins, and any junk that didn't belong on my scalp and hair. I followed up with Briogeo's Don't Despair, Repair Masque and some stylers by Briogeo and Raw Curls and I had such an unbelievable hair day I think my curl definition moved into the next classified category! Since this was the only new product I used that day, it's how I can thank it for the extra definition, softerness and shine! I thought I've gotten my hair shiny thanks to other shampoos but I think this blew them out of the water. I'm so excited to use this again in a few weeks since clarifying shampoos are tricky and the last thing I want to do is overuse it.

charcoal + tea tree scalp treatment
Them: What is is: This unique treatment infuses Binchotan charcoal to draw impurities from the scalp and hair follicle to remove buildup and provide the foundation for optimal scalp health. A cooling blend of peppermint and spearmint oils reduces scalp itchiness and tea tree oil has anti-septic and healing properties that reduce scalp irritation and inflammation. Witch Hazel water helps to normalize oil production to prevent an oily scalp while sodium hyaluronate and aloe keep the scalp balanced and hydrated. Super-vitamin, Biotin, provides essential nutrients to the hair follicle to support healthy hair growth.

Me: There are so many different ways you can use this treatment! When talking with Briogeo, since I personally don't have big scalp concerns, they told me I can use it once or twice a week overnight on my scalp on either way or dry hair how I prefer, as a pre-poo treatment. So I used it instead of my usual scalp oil blend on my scalp the night before washing. It felt really nice, not too heavy. I love the hair growth ingredients inside such as Biotin, Tea Tree Oil, Spearmint and Peppermint. It was nice and I only needed two droppers to thoroughly cover my scalp. It's too soon to say anything miraculous or amazing happened (let's be realistic here please) but I plan on using it once a week before washing for the long term for additional scalp and hair growth benefits.I'll report back with additional thoughts after a few months.

charcoal + biotin dry shampoo
Them: This unique, scalp-healthy dry shampoo infuses Binchotan charcoal to draw impurities from the scalp and detoxify the scalp and hair. A complex of clay and tapioca & rice starches absorb excess oil at the roots to refresh, clean, and extend the life of your blowout. Witch Hazel extract helps to normalize oil production to prevent an oily scalp, making this dry shampoo a solution oriented product as opposed to just a temporary fix. Super-vitamin, Biotin, provides essential nutrients to the hair follicle to support healthy hair growth.

Me: A DRY SHAMPOO THAT HELPS HAIR GROWTH!? I repeat: A DRY SHAMPOO THAT HELPS HAIR GROWTH?! Ladies and gentlemen, coming straight from my dreams to Briogeo suppliers everywhere, let me present to you the CHARCOAL AND BIOTIN DRY SHAMPOO. ::Cue confetti:: Okay, I'm done being silly (side note: not really) But if you read my blog regularly, you know I love everything and anything that can help my hair grow long and strong, and as a curly who works out regularly and is too lazy to wash daily, dry shampoo is my best friend. I've been loving Briogeo's Blossom & Bloom Volumizing Spray as a dry shampoo lately (missed that post? read it HERE) so the fact they came out with an "official" dry shampoo got me beyond excited! Now I admit, I prefer a spray to the loose powder method of application, but this stuff is soooooo good I can easily look past that. It refreshed my hair after working out and I felt it looked a lot cleaner and revived than usual. I was able to wear my hair down an extra day than usual using this stuff. I may have a new favorite dry shampoo on my hands.

Day 1
These pictures are Day 1 hair. I'm sorry for not having makeup on, I haven't had a makeup free day in over 2 weeks and I just wanted to let me skin breathe for a bit. But the shine, bounce, lack of frizz, overall- my hair was so good! I couldn't believe it. I used the Briogeo Scalp Revival Shampoo, followed by Don't Despair, Repair Masque with my ThermalCare Hot Head on top to provide heat. To style, I used a mix of Raw Curls and Briogeo products section by section raking them through my hair and scrunching, then air drying. My roots are still slightly wet in these.

Day 2
These are Day 2 hair. I didn't use the dry shampoo since I didn't work out so my scalp was not bad. I used Raw Curls Anti-Frizz Spray to refesh with a little more of the Briogeo Rosarco Oil on top.

Overall, I'm so happy with the new Briogeo Scalp Revival line as great additions to keeping my hair and scalp healthy. I would rebuy all three products, even though you need so little each time it may be a while until I need to do so! If you want a healthy hair growth environment, and especially if you have any scalp concerns such as dandruff, irritation, itchy or dry scalp, and you're prone to build-up, this line is worth looking into!
