January Beauty Review: Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind Shampoo & Conditioner Set

As a hunter, I struggle finding hunting related shampoo and conditioner sets because quite frankly, it is nearly non-existent. In big box stores, you find the all-in-one shampoo and body wash. There’s maybe one or two brands out there who sell shampoo and conditioner sets for women, but they are usually out of stock. 

I decided to take the leap and look for fragrance-free. It’s basically the same principle, right? I began searching for brands that offer fragrance-free while being conscious about the ingredients for the sake of my fine hair. I came across Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind Shampoo and Conditioner.

NOTE: This review is a little different because this review is also for those who are looking for fragrance free shampoo and conditioner for hunting season. However, if you are interested in finding fragrance-free shampoo and conditioner sets because you’re sensitive to fragrance or you are looking for a more natural shampoo and conditioner set.

Who is Briogeo?

Briogeo Hair Care was founded by Nancy Twine. Twine was inspired by her grandmother, a resident beauty guru who was well known for her homemade hair care in a West Virginia town (How cool is that?). She later traded out her homemade essentials for store-bought when she moved to New York City. Twine realized that the natural hair care market simply didn’t live up to its claims. Therefore, she collaborated with a natural chemist team and her grandmother’s beauty recipes and created Briogeo Hair Care.

Why are they significant?

According to Twine, “We should treat our hair the same way we treat our skin; by nurturing it with ingredients that detoxify, hydrate, and protect.”

Briogeo is inspired by individuality, positivity, and transparency. They create regimens that support the issues we all have with our hair. They think about repair, volume, and curl care and give you the products that support these things. Their products do not contain harsh chemicals such as sulfates, silicones, paragons, phthalates, DEA, and synthetic color. Each product includes an exact percentage of ingredients and its source.

Is it affordable?

The shampoo and conditioner is a little pricey. For the set, it will cost you around $52 ($26 a piece). However, if you sign up for a subscription, you would be paying $23.40 (10% off). 

Pros:

-Conditioner formulation: I really like how creamy the conditioner is. It wasn’t a chore massaging it on the ends of my hair.

-Less frizz: After using the set during hunting season, I noticed I had less frizz in my hair after I blow dry it. I’m not sure whether it is due to the lack of fragrance or if it is the ingredients in the formula.

Cons:

-Shampoo formulation: I felt like the formulation was a little watery. I felt like I needed a bigger amount in order for my scalp to feel clean. 

-More tangles from the shampoo: I had a little more tangles after using the shampoo. Whenever I applied the conditioner, I had to use a little more of it and be gentle when working the conditioner in my hair.

My Takeaway:

Scent-free, manageable hair

Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind Shampoo and Conditioner met the expectations of being fragrance free. Initially, it took a couple of washes for the fragrance to come out. I was pleased with the outcome during hunting season. If it wasn’t for the price, I could switch over to using this on a regular basis. I look forward to trying out their other products in the future.
