If you have followed me for a long time, you know that Briogeo is my absolute favorite hair care brand. Highly effective products that are also clean, natural, and from a Black-owned business. Their products are 6-free meaning there are no harsh sulfates, no silicones, no parabens, no phthalates, no artificial dyes, and no DEA. The brand’s proprietary NOVA complex works to fortify, nourish, and protect the hair.
I personally have very dry hair, and a dry scalp. In the past I have been turned off by dandruff shampoos as they smelled weird or dried out my hair… opting to use Briogeo’s Scalp Revival Scrub instead (this was the product that first made me fall in love with Briogeo — it smells just like a Thin Mint Girl Scout cookie and gets your hair and scalp so, so clean… it’s one of my absolute favorite products of all time). When I found out that Briogeo was launching a new companion shampoo (their Scalp Revival Dandruff Relief Shampoo!) I could not wait to try it. Everything I have tried from this brand is so, so good… spoiler alert, this shampoo is excellent!!!!

Briogeo’s Brand New Scalp Revival Shampoo
We will talk about the new shampoo in a sec but Briogeo’s entire Scalp Revival product line is wonderful. My favorite is the scrub but there is also a cooling and hydrating mask (this feels so good on the scalp!), a dry shampoo, a treatment, and a scalp massager.
Briogeo’s new Scalp Revival Shampoo is made from 92% naturally derived ingredients and harnesses the power of salicylic acid (3%!) to reduce scalp irritation and redness, and (of course!) pesky flaking and scaling associated with dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis, and/or psoriasis. I have been using this once a week (I wash my hair 2x a week and use the Don’t Despair, Repair Shampoo on the other day) and have seen a noticeable improvement. You can use it after using the scalp scrub, or just use it on its own.
Here are the key ingredients (besides salicylic acid) that help it work so well!
Lactic Acid hydrates and exfoliates.
Binchotan Charcoal gently cleanses and helps to diminish impurities, excess oil, and build-up (sometimes I can’t tell if I have dandruff or just use too much dry shampoo – this tackles both things!)
Tea Tree Oil soothes!
The best way to use it is to use it directly after the scalp scrub as the scrub will remove the top layer of dry flakes dirt, and grime (ew!) setting the shampoo up to do its best work. But you can totally use it without the scrub for dandruff maintenance!
