I like to think of myself as a minimalist when it comes to hair care, but Actually, I’m lazier. My routine is to wash your hair every day, adding a drop of oil marula my ends after towel drying if I need extra moisture, a quick burst of dry my roots or let air dry (which rarely blow dry it completely dry) and if I feel really ambitious, a dash light Intelligent Nutrients hair spray to soften my frizz. Thus, shampooed be the central player in my care routine “minimalist” hair, I’m always hoping to find a natural formula that will magically solve all my hair woes. (Probably not realistic, I know!)
A little about my hair, I have the extremes that tend to dry oily medium length hair and a scalp. My hair is thick medium-fine texture and is a combination of fine, straight hair loosely wavy hairs, / full thick curly hair and even zig-zaggy. Because attacks spill caused by thyroid disease, always I have shorter hairs growing, they tend to form a small halo of frizz. My hair is notoriously picky conditioners and styling products. Has the tendency to go limp when they try, or even more frizz, therefore, my routine minimalist products that will not disturb my fussy hair.
Therefore, when I was sent a bottle of Briogeo flower and bloom Shampoo volume ($ 24), I wanted to see if I could do magic hair on me. It is claiming to be from “those with fine, thin, soft hair, and / or lifeless who want to boost growth, while more immediately, increasing the appearance of thicker and fuller hair.” Sounds good to me!
he was not familiar with the Briogeo brand, but the ingredients for this shampoo seemed sufficiently clean (without sulfates, parabens, artificial fragrances, or wheat protein), and included aloe juice, argan oil, coconut oil to add moisture, biotin, panthenol, ginseng and ginger to nourish follicles, maltodextrin and starch to thicken the hair, so I was willing to try. I am sensitive to artificial fragrances and as a person with celiac disease, I avoid wheat, even topically (studies show it can cause skin reactions in sensitive people with weakened skin barrier).
have tried many natural shampoos, from basic to high end, and very few I have been really impressed, so I was eager to see how flower and Bloom take place and whether it could accumulate up my favorite, but expensive ($ 34 for 8 oz.), natural shampoo. The first thing I noticed was the pleasant smell. It smells more like a product of salon shampoos I’m used to using, which tend to smell more herbal. This smells like a brilliant combination of grapefruit and sweet orange, with a touch of ginger and something vaguely earthy perfumey and I can not quite place. As for the ingredients, there is a fragrance that appears and no other essential oils beyond citrus and ginger, which lets suppose that I’m smelling ginseng extract. The texture is a gel medium thickness and soaped were left my hair feeling clean, but not overly stripped or dry. I just had to use about a tablespoon-sized rooms for a good lather. The smell lingered in my hair lightly all day, which was a new experience for a natural shampoo. Usually odors fade quickly. It did not bother my fragrance sensitivity, however.
Throughout my month of use, I played a little let my hair air dry and not completely dry to get a good idea of the performance. When it dries the air, I can not say I’ve noticed more bounce, but certainly felt thicker, and was bright and soft parts of my wavy hair were slightly relaxed without being limp. When blow drying, it was very noticeably bouncier and had more volume than normal, without sacrificing brightness or softness. The ability to bounce and shine persisted even after being swept by the wind and slept in (my hair often looks flat and duller the next morning)! I was quite impressed and I enjoyed the feeling of having such bouncy, shiny hair! No magically tame my halo of frizz, but it tends to establish itself as the day went on.
Overall, I’d say good morning had much more hair than normal and I really enjoyed using it. The price is reasonable for a good performance, high-quality shampoo ($ 24 for 8 oz.). I washed my hair every two days and still have a good 2/3 of a bottle left, so it is a decent economical. It is something that certainly will be happy to continue shopping.
