Briogeo Scalp Revival Review.

Briogeo Scalp Revival Review

I’m excited about this product review as it’s a good one. But first – we have to talk about the scent. I KNOW THIS IS NOT THE POINT or the thing we should care about most… but GUYS: this stuff smells pretty much exactly like a Girl Scout Thin Mint cookie. It’s wild. The scent is dead on. This scalp scrub/shampoo potion is highly effective but is also going to make you crave those cookies… badly. I just needed to warn you! It legitimately makes me hungry.

what it is: This is a charcoal and coconut oil micro-exfoliating scrub. I have tried a lot of scalp scrubs and detox treatments etc etc and Briogeo Scalp Revival is different from the others as it’s much less granular than say, the Christophe Robin one or the Goop one. (And I love those too but this one feels more manageable and is a little easier to rinse out.)

why I love it: The granules feel more like sand, if that makes sense… and (as I said earlier!) it smells BEYOND. It gets your hair very very clean (removing product buildup and grime… hello dry shampoo and sunscreen!). Besides that, it’s also very soothing, which I appreciate as my scalp can get itchy and dry.

why it works! There’s a lot going on with this product. First of all, charcoal detoxifies and draws impurities from the scalp and hair follicle. Micro-exfoliators (again, these are more like sand, not larger chunks like many scrubs) remove dead skin cells. Meanwhile, peppermint and spearmint cool and help with itchiness, alongside tea tree oil which calms irritation. Last but not least, coconut oil hydrates! And did I mention it’s totally clean and free of all the bad stuff? I LOVE this product.

PS – how to deep clean your scalp at home, and my favorite apple cider vinegar hair rinse recipe.

the best deep clean for your scalp!

This is going to be your new best friend, especially if your scalp gets itchy due to dryness or product buildup. It’s perfect for all my fellow dry-shampoo addicts AND it smells amazing.

    I just bought this last week after seeing this listed in your first post about black owned businesses. I love it! I bought it in the travel sized kit and it came with conditioner and and a treatment oil. Love all 3 products:) Thanks for putting this awesome company on my radar 🙂

    Thank you so much for sharing! My hair has so much buildup from shampoo and it’s thin so I feel like it never fully looks clean. Definitely going to try this!

    I cannot say enough good things about this product! I have been using it for almost a year now along with the scalp treatment and it is life changing. While I know it is recommended for people with a lot of buildup or with dandruff/flakes, it is also great if you have an oily scalp. Unfortunately due to some medicine, my scalp started producing oil like crazy but my hair, especially the ends, was still dry. I had to wash my hair everyday just to avoid an oily mess. I started using this and the scalp treatment and now I am back to washing my hair every third day and my ends are just fine! I think it’s the tea tree oil but it balances out the ph balance in my scalp (it’s like getting a cleanser and toner in one). The founder also did a great podcast on Second Life with Hillary Kerr if you want to learn more about her and the brand. I stock up at Sephora and DermStore sales and just started trying the scalp massager and one of their conditioners.

    • Oh thank you for the tips!!!!! (And I love Second Life so def going to look up this interview.)

    I love this product when I want to indulge myself. Although, I tend to follow grandma’s advice and “wash” with a paste of baking soda and water followed by an apple cider vinegar rinse when I want the same impact. Because let’s be honest smelling like a pickle (or maybe it’s just noticeable to me) is not ideal.

    • That works, too!!!! Def check out the other post I linked, I shared several good DIY versions!

  5. Megan says 7.8.20

    I got a sample of this as my birthday gift from Sephora and LOVED it!

  6. Sarah says 7.8.20

    Is this an every day shampoo or once a week?

    • I think that’s up to you! You can use as a shampoo but I generally do it 1-2x a week.

  7. Maggie says 7.8.20

    Just ordered it!

    • Yay!!! Keep me posted on how you like it!

      • Maggie says 7.14.20

        Got it in the mail yesterday (quick shipping!) and used it this morning for the first time! The smell is sooooo delicious, lol.

  8. Karina says 7.8.20

    I’ve been debating this product for a while but I think this deals the deal that I have to buy it!!

  9. Leah Rockwell says 7.8.20

    You had me at Thin Mint!

  10. Dara says 7.8.20

    So pleased to see others love this too! This SAVED my scalp! I was itching so much that I had scabs, but I use this every few washes along with the drops after every wash (sadly sold out right now) and my scalp is so much healthier!

    • Aw good I am so glad and now I want to try the drops!!!!

    • Karina says 7.9.20

      Dara – This sounds so much like my scalp. It’s horrible. Hoping this will help me as much1

    Oh I wish I could get this here in Germany x

    My biggest takeaway from this post is that scalp sunscreen is a thing… never heard of it before you mentioned dry shampoo and sunscreen build up but googling now! Also the scrub sounds amazing.

    • HAHAHA it’s nothing fancy but if I’m sitting out in the sun I spray my hair with my sunscreen spritz, or apply a layer of sunscreen to my part!

    Oh, I need to give this a try! I do battle with itchy scalp now and then so I am really hoping this will do the trick! Thank you for sharing!
