A lot of people are sort of amazed that Briogeo is founded and owned by a black woman. I think people assume it’s a brand under some larger parent company like L’Oreal but in reality it was founded and is owned by Nancy Twine. She’s one of the youngest African American women to launch a hair care line at Sephora being in her twenties at the time of launch. Nancy is one of those triple threats that we should recognize and admire for the fact that she is not only African American but also, because she’s young and a woman. Imagine being merely 33 years old and already having a highly successful business under your belt? That’s success right there!
Briogeo is actually one of those Instagram made me do it brands. I saw so many ads for it and people promoting it across Instagram that I suddenly had to find out what all the hyped was about. After trying it out for myself I was hooked.
Here’s some of my top picks for my long, wavy hair!
Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind Avocado + Kiwi Mega Moisture Superfoods Hair Mask
VERY new but very GOOD! I grabbed up this new mask when it first launched and I’m in love with it. I’ve been using it once a week and it leaves my hair so soft and shiny!
Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-exfoliating Scalp Scrub Shampoo
I see this as more of a treatment for some with oily hair but it actually works a treat for most anyone that wants to get a good deep cleanse in. I never heard of exfoliating shampoo until I tried this. It’s a charcoal and coconut oil-infused shampoo with a slightly grainy texture and a low sud formula which acts to raw impurities from the scalp and hair follicle. I like using it when my hair seems to be weighted down with product and I need a little clarifying. I use it with a scalp massager. It’s def one of the brand’s star products!
Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind Banana + Coconut Superfoods Nourishing Hair Value Set
Gentle, Be Kind Banana and Coconut Nourishing Superfood Shampoo and Conditioner are both available indivdually but this set contains both as well as a small size of the Be Gentle, Be Kind Avocado and Kiwi Mega Moisture Superfood Mask. Not only do I love the lingering scent of this shampoo and conditioner duo but also I adore how it conditions my hair and I always feel like I lose less strands in the shower when using it! Big yay for this one!
