If you're someone who's blessed with natural glossy hair that falls perfectly silky and frizz-free postwashing, I say, "Congratulations . . . go count your blessings!"
The rest of the world, myself included, has a much different hair-washing experience that involves panic, heartache (bye-bye, blowout), and strategic planning in order to whip our unruly manes into socially acceptable shape. Not only does wash day bring back the frizzy, untamed bends of my natural hair texture, but even the most nourishing formulas leave my scalp stripped and admittedly flaky (ugh!). That is, until this unassuming white tub of Briogeo Scalp Revival Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo ($42) came into my life and forever changed the shampoo experience. From the exfoliating bits that slough away flakiness to the dreamy minty scent, here's everything you need to know about the unique formula.
The thick charcoal cream looks more like a mask than a shampoo. Everything from the large tub to the dark gray gritty formula packed inside is misleading. But it all combines to deliver the most unique shampooing experience imaginable. It feels almost counterproductive rubbing dark gray cream over your hair in an effort to clean it, but one tszuj of the minty, refreshing formula and you might actually start to look forward to hair-washing day.
