Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind Superfoods Hair Pack

Briogeo recently released a new Shampoo and Conditioner duo. Inspired by what Green Juice and Smoothies do for our bodies, the new formulas have green fruits and veggies in them to help the health of our hair. Read on for for my thoughts!






I need to take a moment to appreciate the cute packaging!! I love that the bottle look like green juice bottles and the outside carton my package came in looks like a market. I'd be lying if I said I didn't start craving a juicy smoothie from this set up. I also appreciate and LOLed at the fact the price sticker actually says "Do Not Eat" because when you smell the duo, you may be tempted to take a sip. (But seriously, don't.) They smell like fresh apples, very yummy.

Here is what Briogeo's site says about the new duo:

"WHO IT'S FOR:
Those with dry, parched and dull hair.

WHAT IT IS:
A nutrient rich, green juice inspired shampoo and conditioner duo that will quench parched strands and help deliver vital daily nourishment to the hair and scalp.

WHAT IT DOES:
This green-juice inspired shampoo is packed with matcha and apple to cleanse and help nourish hair without stripping it of moisture. The conditioner is an infusion of kale and apple to nourish and hydrate the scalp and hair. By harnessing the power of fruit and vegetable fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals, this regimen will support the vibrancy of hair and is the perfect compliment to your wellness routine.

Matcha and Apple Replenishing Superfood Shampoo


My Thoughts: While I like this shampoo, I do prefer the Don't Despair, Repair Super Moisturizing Shampoo from the brand a bit better. That one is more moisturizing for my super dry hair. That being said, for a sulfate free cleanser, this did lather beautifully and the bubbles felt quite soft. My hair felt a bit stiff after cleansing, like I absolutely had to follow up with a moisturizing conditioner. But not so stiff to where I couldn't get my fingers through my hair. I will be using this shampoo every so often when I feel I need a nice, thorough cleansing. This shampoo is replacing the original Be Gentle, Be Kind Shampoo that was an original Briogeo product the brand debuted with years ago. I do like this formula a lot better than that one. That version of the shampoo sad to say was my least favorite Briogeo product I tried due to just how stiff starch like it left my hair feeling after I cleansed.


Since the claim is lightweight moisture I had my fiance, Tommie, try this formula as well. We have complete opposite hair types. Tommie has beautiful shoulder length hair that is very fine and gets weighed down and oily very easy. He liked how the shampoo cleansed his hair and didn't weigh his hair down at all. It also left his hair shiny and so very soft. Because his hair is so fine, he said the shampoo was moisturizing enough for him and didn't use the conditioner. He regularly doesn't go for conditioners.


Kale and Apple Replenishing Superfood Conditioner

My Thoughts: The word lightweight had me nervous since my hair loves moisture. I was happy that this conditioner felt a little richer and creamier than I was expecting. This conditioner has wonderful slip and my hair drank it up. I was pleasantly surprised how potent it actually was and I needed to use less than I thought I would need. Since I'm used to using masks every wash for dry hair, this alone as my conditioner just isn't quite enough. That being said, I do really like this as a leave in! If your hair gets weighed down easier or you like lightweight products, I think you will love this. Since I try to fight unwanted volume and pouf, I like when products have a little weight to them.

With using the new Briogeo Superfood Shampoo and Conditioner, I also used stylers I am very familiar with to pinpoint the difference that shampoo and conditioner made in my hair. What I noticed first and foremost, is that my hair felt very, very light. My curls had some shine, I had elongated definition and my hair air dried quicker than usual. I felt my hair did look healthy, but I had some frizz. Unfortunately, after working out the next day my Day 2 hair was not the best.

Here is everything I used for this wash day:
  • Cleanser: Briogeo Superfood Shampoo
  • Conditioner and Stylers: Briogeo Superfood Conditioner as a leave in, Raw Curls Anti-Frizz Spray, Jessicurl Oil Blend, Raw Curls Firm Hold Gel  

I applied products as usual. The Superfood Conditioner I applied in small sections using the "seaweed technique" I then flipped my hair over and applied the rest of the styling products. I air dried completely.

LAUNCH PARTY
I actually attended the launch party for this Shampoo and Conditioner last week! The party was not a blogger party, it was for press only, but one of my very good friends started working with Brigeo recently and brought me as her plus one! The party was at the Broken Coconut, a juice bar in NYC. There was several different green juices, and drinks (non-alcoholic, which meant I could drink them) and even a green chocolate fondue tower which was absolutely delicious! I had a great time so I thought I'd share some pictures.
