Better Hair Days in 2022.

Better Hair Days in 2022

I really want to take better care of my hair this year. Cutting seven inches off was amazing –  my hair just felt SO good. I want to keep that going. The shorter length also makes it much, much easier to style. I have a tendency to be lazy with my hair cuts – I will cut a bunch off and then avoid the salon for six months. So, regular cuts will be a priority. Besides that though, I have a new favorite product.

Before I talk about it though, you already know how much I love Briogeo: incredible, effective products that also happen to be clean and from a Black-owned, female-founded business. Their Don’t Despair, Repair collection is my absolute fav. It’s all I use- the shampoo & conditioner leave my hair super hydrated and soft (while helping to prevent frizz which is huge here with the Charleston humidity!) and I love the mask every week or so for extra hydration. If you have dry and/or damaged hair, you will LOVE this line… it’s been a real game changer for me.

Better Hair Days in 2022

This month they launched a new product and it is just fantastic. It’s their brand new rice water protein + moisture strengthening treatment. This is for those of us who heat style our hair a lot and want to strengthen it. And in the process, it leaves your hair so, so, so incredibly soft. I’m going to share how I use it below (also, watch my reel over on Instagram) but first I want to talk about what makes it so great.

First of all, this is an at-home, professional grade treatment — Briogeo’s most intensive treatment yet! It has the perfect balance of protein + moisture for stronger, healthier hair. Did you ever notice? Too much moisture = limp and lifeless hair. Too much protein = dry, brittle hair. It’s hard to find a balance. This is easy to use, smells amazing, AND it makes hair 2x stronger after just one use (again, this is perfect if you heat style your hair: stronger hair = less breakage).

Also, we have a code! Use GRACE for 20% off sitewide at Briogeo!

Here is how I use it! 

1. Shampoo hair (My fav shampoo is Briogeo’s Don’t Despair, Repair shampoo – it gets my hair really clean while hydrating.)
2. Towel dry and comb in the treatment.
3. Comb through and pull your hair up.
4. Let it sit for at least 15 minutes (You can even sleep in it, if you’d like… just maybe put a towel down over your pillow).
5. Rinse out. For extra credit, use the Don’t Despair, Repair mask!
6. Style as usual.

    • AHH that makes me so happy – I am so passionate about this brand! Love the scalp scrub/shampoo – it smells like a thin mint cookie.
