We don't like to talk about it, but sometimes we suffer from a dry, itchy, flaky scalp. It's a bit embarrassing, but that's no reason to ignore it—that only makes it worse. Not only does taking care of your scalp fight the flakes, but it also strengthens follicles to help stimulate hair growth. Want to know our personal savior for scalp care? Briogeo's Scalp Revival Line that features the Scalp Revival Charcoal + Tea Tree Scalp Treatment, Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo, Scalp Revival Scalp Massager, and the newest addition to the family, the Charcoal + Peppermint Oil Cooling Jelly Conditioner, to name a few faves.
So why is the Briogeo Scalp Revival Line one of the best for keeping your scalp healthy? Well, like everything in Briogeo's haircare line, it's 6-free haircare—that means no harsh sulfates, no silicones, no phthalates, no parabens, no DEA, no artificial dyes. Plus, the detoxifying charcoal and refreshing peppermint and spearmint oils help clean and refresh your scalp. We sat down with Briogeo founder, Nancy Twine, to find out more about the collection.
Tell us about the unique formula of the Scalp Revival line.
"When I was researching scalp issues, so many of them stemmed from product buildup on the scalp—product, sebum, oil, and dirt that can clog the hair follicle and that can actually lead to things like hair loss. But, it was that buildup that was the culprit for things like itchiness, irritation, and flakiness. I chose charcoal because it has a really unique structure—on its surface area, there are all these really absorptive pores that can actually suck up everything, so that when you do wash your scalp and hair, it’s able to get in there and actually wash everything out. It is a powerful ingredient!"
What makes Briogeo Hair Care naturally based?
"Briogeo is 6-free haircare, meaning all of our formulas are free of harsh sulfates, parabens, phthalates, silicones, DEA, and synthetic color. Instead, we use plant-based ingredients to formulate our products to achieve hair care that is both clean and performance driven! While people are actively seeking natural product alternatives, I also know that most are not willing to sacrifice product performance, and if I wanted to create a sustainable line, the products needed to perform as well as their synthetic counterparts."
How does the cooling jelly texture and ingredients like charcoal and peppermint oil help to revive the scalp?
"The unique jelly texture allows you to apply the conditioner directly to the scalp without weighing hair down at the roots! You'd be surprised by how many people actually avoid applying conditioner to the roots because of fear that it will leave the roots looking limp and greasy, but it's not the case with this conditioner! The charcoal detoxifies the hair and scalp by absorbing impurities such as oil, dirt, sebum, and product build-up. Meanwhile, the unique cooling sensation comes from a blend of spearmint and peppermint oils which immediately take effect to soothe itchiness and irritation."
What are the benefits of using biotin for haircare?
"Biotin is an amazing ingredient for scalp care. In our Scalp Revival collection, we use biotin to strengthen the hair shaft and hair follicle. With consistent use, Briogeo products containing biotin help support healthy hair growth!"
What is the best way to incorporate Briogeo Scalp Revival products into your hair care regimen? How much product should you use? How often should you use the products?
"We recommend Scalp Revival as a weekly treatment routine to maintain a healthy scalp and promote healthy hair growth starting at the roots. Those with more consistent scalp concerns can use the collection as often as needed! Use about a walnut-sized amount of the shampoo and conditioner with focus at the roots. I love using the Scalp Revival Stimulating Therapy Massager in the shower to massage the Cooling Jelly Conditioner into the scalp before rinsing! It's like a jade roller for your scalp! The Scalp Revival Treatment can be used any time you need to soothe irritation and hydrate the scalp before or after the shower. I love it taking with me when I travel for on-the-go scalp care!"
