Meg Hair! You know when you have a new beauty find and you just want to shout it from the rooftops? You think “It is my duty to help other women and I must share!” My girlfriend asked me if she could send me her review of BrioGeo Hair Care. She’s is loving the way her hair has been looking so I, of course said “Send it on over lady!”

Spend $50 and free samples.My latest hair obsession is with BrioGeo Hair Care. There aren’t actually that many hair brands that work for my fine, wavy hair. I have tried some really expensive and really cheap-o brands, and most of them are just meh. When I want curls, this is my new go-to brand.

How do you pronounce it and what does it mean? Briogeo [bree-oh-jhee-oh] Brio = vivid, full of life, distinct;  Geo = of earth, nature.

Be Gentle Be Kind Cleansing Shampoo is perfect for any hair type or texture. It’s gentle on hair – including color treated hair, and it’s made with green tea, bamboo, avocado, Vit B5, Vit E, collagen and aloe. No sulfates, parabens, silicones or phthalates, if you’re avoiding those ingredients. The formula is made with 95% naturally derived ingredients.

The Curling Charisma Curl Defining Conditioner gives me CRAZY curls! I love it! It doesn’t weigh my hair down at all. It’s made with rice amino acids, marine-derived collagen, rosehip oil, almond oil, oyster plant (not ACTUAL oysters!), tomato fruit, bamboo, orange peel, Vit E and shea butter. It does have keratin amino acids (from wool) and silk proteins, so it’s cruelty free but not vegan. Sounds like it would weigh down hair, but it doesn’t! The best thing for me to do is squeeze gently and pat dry with a microfiber hair towel. Then scrunch my curls (maybe add a little styling product) and then air dry. Or I can dry with a diffuser if I don’t have time to let it dry.

Wondering why sulfates are bad? Well, some people say they are harmful to your health. Personally, I avoid them because they strip away hair color and that’s particularly bad when you’re trying to keep your hair red (which washes out more easily than any other color). Here’s what BrioGeo has to say about sulfates:

“Sulfates are harsh, synthetic salts that are used as cleaning agents in a myriad of applications—ranging from personal care to household cleaners. While effective at getting rid of dirt and oil, the use of sulfates in hair care products has become a controversial topic for many reasons.”

The use of sulfates that come in contact with the scalp have reported skin related issues such as epidermal irritation, dryness, redness, itchiness, and in some instances, hair loss stemming from follicle inflammation. In addition, sulfates can be harmful to the hair itself, stripping strands of their natural oils and leaving them prone to dryness, dullness, and breakage.

We’ve formulated our sulfate-free Be Gentle, Be Kind™ shampoo cleanser with surfactants derived naturally from fatty & amino acids and vegetable & coconut oils that cleanse the hair and produce a luxurious, hydrating lather.”

You can find BrioGeo at Fred Segal and online. When ordering online, you get free shipping over $50 and free samples.

I’m really happy with this brand and wanted to give you all a heads up! What is your holy grail item! Please share!!
