Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer Review: Is It Worth It? 2022

When I was trying to decide between the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer versus the Dyson Airwrap versus other more affordable hair dryer brands, I ultimately went with the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer. And now here I am reviewing a hair dryer while my man watches the fifa World Cup. There’s so much hype around Dyson for hair, and I wondered what makes Dyson so special besides the technology, futuristic design and being famous for its vacuums. Even though I love the sleek look of a good blowout, the main reason I don’t like to blowdry my hair is because of the cumulative damage it would cause to my already very damaged hair. The Dyson hair dryer promised to prevent heat damage through its ability to dry hair faster. Still, is a hair dryer worth $429 when traditional ones cost less than $100 and how is the Dyson cost justified? I figured I could find out and if I didn’t like the Dyson Supersonic, I could always return it within the return policy deadline. I’m sharing the good and the bad in this Dyson hair dryer review, and why I don’t think majority of people should buy the Dyson Supersonic. I WILL say this is the kind of gift that would impress your mother-in-law.

Dyson hair dryer review

Dyson Hair Dryer Pros and Cons

I ultimately chose the Dyson hair dryer over the Dyson Airwrap because the Airwrap doesn’t fully dry your hair and is mainly focused on styling. So if I bought the Airwrap I’d have one more styling tool to add to my collection but would STILL be in need of a hair dryer.

I also decided to go for the black version because black looks more chic than silver. Plus my partner could enjoy using it when he needs to blowdry his hair.

Dyson hair dryer

There’s Dyson Supersonic hair dryers that are refurbished, but I decided to go with the regular hair dryer even though a refurbished one would have been $100 cheaper. Reason being for the warranty. Dyson warranty lasts two years normally, but for the refurbished one only one year. Amazon also offers refurbished Dyson products but I’m not sure what their warranty is.

Dyson hair dryer review

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer Pros

Here is what the Dyson hair dryer has to offer broken down in easy to read snippets:

  • Bladeless design
  • Uses the Dyson Digita Motor V9: Spins up to 110,000rpm, propelling 13 liters of air up to the amplifier every second
  • Uses an aerodynamic phenomenon called the Coanda effect that attracts hair to surfaces through jet propelled streams of air
  • Prevents hair damage with intelligent heat control technology that measures airflow temperature over 40 times per second
  • Air Multiplier technology that creates high-velocity jets of air to dry hair quicker than traditional hair dryers
  • Five magnetic attachments for easy switching in and out
  • Flyaway attachment eliminates the need to use a hair straightener separately
  • Made with all hair types in mind
  • 3 heat settings
  • 4 speed settings
  • Smaller shape

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer

Dyson hair dryer

What Comes with the Dyson Hair Dryer

The Supersonic comes with five different attachments:

  • Gentle air attachment: diffuses air in a gentle and cooler stream of air. Ideal for sensitive scalps and thinner hair.
  • Diffuser: Larger diffuser for curly or wavy hair. Mimics natural air-drying by dispersing air across a wider surface area.
  • Wide-tooth comb: Great for type 4c hair
  • Styling concentrator: For a precision blowout. Used for styling and drying smaller sections of hair with a precise stream of air.
  • Flyaway attachment: Used after hair is dry to smooth out any flyaways and frizzy hair for an extra sleek effect

Dyson Supersonic hair dryer

What You Should Know about Dyson Supersonic

Something I didn’t know before I bought the Dyson hair dryer is that I needed to clean the filter once a month. Both the hair dryer’s outer filter cage and the inner filter mesh should be wiped down regularly with a dry cloth. For something so expensive, you want to make sure you’re prolonging product life with proper care.

Dyson hair dryer

Also, while I was delighted that the Dyson attachments were magnetic, the magnets are extremely strong and a little difficult to pull apart. You do eventually get the hang of it, but at first the magnets were surprisingly strong.

While the Dyson technology exceeded my expectations, it fell short in the noise department. It might be another decade (or never?) before silent hair dryers exist. The third and strongest setting on the Dyson hair dryer is pretty loud while the 2nd setting is much more tolerable for my ears.

Dyson hair dryer

How to Properly Use the Dyson Hair Dryer

Figuring out how to use the Dyson hair attachments is a learning process. To maximize the results from the Dyson Supersonic it’s important to know how and what to use each attachment for. For instance, I found that the diffuser worked best for the bulk of the hair drying process and the styling concentrator attachment was ideal at the very end. The best way to use it is to:

  • Point the nozzle away from the scalp
  • Place it around half an inch from the hair

The final step if I have time and want to look extra snatched is the flyaway attachment, which  easily replaces my hair straightener. I start just shy of my roots and go down the lengths and find that it gives me more of a sleek, shiny finish. The Dyson flyaway attachment has the most effect when used on the highest setting.

Speaking of which, the highest speed setting of the Dyson is can be a tad too strong to be used comfortably for the entire blow dry process. Ironically, the Dyson team should have made the 3rd speed just a little less powerful which would have possibly also made it less noisy. I find myself using the 2nd setting but wish I could take more advantage of the Dyson’s power.

My Honest Review of Dyson Supersonic

Let me start by answering whether I think you should buy the Dyson hair dryer and then I’ll explain why I got it for myself. No, don’t buy it. Why? Because it’s super expensive, and no one actually needs a $400 hair dryer in their life. The Dyson hair dryer never seems to go on sale either. They really position it as an exclusive, luxury product. My life (and hair) was truly fine before I got the Dyson for my hair and it would have been just fine without it. The Supersonic should be a holiday wishlist item that you’ll only accept as a gift, ideally from your partner since they’ll be the ones benefiting the most from you looking like THAT GIRL.

Dyson hair dryer

Here’s why I personally bought the Dyson for my hair. “Buy less, choose well and make it last” by iconic fashion designer and environmentalist, Vivienne Westwood forever changed the way I consume. I prefer to invest in products that are superior and last forever instead of cheaply made items. I’m also financially in a place where I can afford to make big ticket purchases like this. As Jay Z once said, you can’t afford something unless you can buy three of them. In my 20s when I was swimming in college loan debt and making a meager salary, I would never have even entertained the idea of such an excessive purchase.

Dyson hair dryer

Lastly, I have very damaged hair from decades of chemical processing, bleaching, dying etc. Most people have not put their hair through what I’ve put mine through. In fact, all my friends have healthy virgin hair that they might have colored or put in a few face-framing highlights once in their lives to satisfy an itch for change. Their hair would stand up just fine to some occasional heat damage and recover quickly. Mine not so much. Mine’s barely holding on by a strand.

Is the Dyson hair dryer a very cool hair tool? Yes definitely. There’s a lot of aspects I love about it. The Supersonic is by far the most advanced hair dryer I’ve experienced and the technology is without a doubt impressive. I love the non-bulky minimalistic design. It’s so easy to hold and even with the attachment on, the bulk of the device’s weight is in the handle. Almost all hair dryers look like those ConAir ones with a handle and a body that looks like a horse’s head. Because the top part is so bulky compared to the handle my hands always get tired, maneuvering it around my head becomes awkward and having to finish drying my hair becomes a lengthy and arduous mission.

Yes the Dyson hair dryer cuts down on drying time. I have very long hair that goes a little past the middle of my back and the Dyson dried it in about 11-12 minutes.

Dyson Supersonic hair dryer

Who the Dyson Hair Dryer Makes Sense For

You have to tick at least two of these bullets for the $429 Dyson hair dryer to make sense as a purchase:

  • Budget is not a concern
  • Your hair is severely damaged, thinning, prone to breakage, heavily processed, etc
  • Your time is very limited and valuable – you don’t have time to dry your hair for 20-30 minutes daily
  • You blow dry your hair daily because of a people-facing job or job that requires you to look impeccably groomed

If you normally use a hair dryer once a week or a few times a month for special occasions only, the Dyson Supersonic isn’t worth it for you. If you’ve got a stressful, demanding job that requires you to look polished at all times and very little free time, then this hair dryer will save you time, effort and your mental health.

Dont forget to check the return policy of the retailer you might make your purchase so you can return it if you don’t like it.

Ceremonia Hair Review

Ceremonia hair

Fairly new to the scene, clean hair brand Ceremonia launched in 2020 with a line that celebrates Latinx heritage and traditions. Ceremonia founder, Babba C. Rivera is of Swedish-Latinx ethnicity, and all the products  in her line contain ingredients sourced from Latin American countries like Peru, Ecuador, Brazil and more. Through their social channels and marketing imagery, Ceremonia celebrates Latinx beauty and uplifts Latinx talent. While Ceremonia focuses on frizziness, scalp health and curly hair, the range can work for all hair types. Ceremonia is considered clean haircare, but they are not 100% natural nor organic and do include synthetics. Read on for my honest thoughts on Ceremonia clean hair care.

Black Friday offers:

  • 2 ITEMS, GET 15% OFF: USE CODE 15OFF
  • 3 ITEMS, GET 20% OFF: USE CODE 20OFF
  • 4+ ITEMS, GET 25% OFF: USE CODE 25OFF

Ceremonia hair care

One thing to note is Ceremonia uses synthetics in their scent. Though they don’t outright state this on their website I can tell the scent is not 100% natural. In their FAQ Ceremonia states their “clean-formula signature scent is 100% skin-safe, hypoallergenic and formulated without harsh chemicals, parabens or phthalate.”

The Ceremonia line is on the affordable end with most products costing around $20-$30.

Ceremonia Aceite de moska

Ceremonia Aceite de Moska

The debut Ceremonia product, Aceite de Moska scalp oil was inspired by an oil used for haircare in the Dominican Republic. It contains:

  • Aloe Vera to soothe the scalp⁠
  • Babassu Oil to moisturize the scalp ⁠
  • Castor Oil to promote hair health and growth⁠
  • Chia Seed Oil to improve hair strength⁠
  • Maracuja Oil to boost shine and add a protective layer
  • Cupuacu Butter to optimize moisture retention⁠
  • Pataua Oil to reduce scalp flakiness and provide ultimate hydration⁠

The natural oils are sourced from Brazil, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico and Peru and help promote a healthier scalp. Aceite de Moska is a silky light oil that smells warm and yummy.

Ceremonia Guava Rescue Spray

Ceremonia Guava Rescue Spray (UV + Heat Protectant)

One of my favorites from the Ceremonia line, Guava Rescue Spray works to condition, detangle, and protect hair. It’s a very multi-functional spray that helps me do just about everything. Guava Rescue Spray is made with guava to help protect hair against UV damage and butterfly ginger and avocado to protect hair against blue light, pollution and heat styling tools, (up to 450F / 232C.) The scent is the same as all Ceremonia products, subtly sweet and tropical.Ceremonia conditioner

Ceremonia Acondicionador

The Ceremonia conditioner is formulated for dry or thick hair and contains the superfruit cupuaçu butter to reduce frizz and castor oil to condition the hair and add shine. The formula also contains blue agave extract, babassu oil, aloe vera and patauá oil.

Ceremonia hair acondicionador
The Acondicionador is surprisingly more of a gel-cream conditioner and feels lightweight. Because it looks so much like a styling serum I also like using it as a leave-in treatment.

Ceremonia Mascarilla de Babassu

Ceremonia Mascarilla de Babassu

This rich yet still silky hair mask is easy to apply and absorbs quickly into my hair for a deep conditioning treatment. I like to soak in a hot bath with a shower cap so the heat gets trapped inside and allows the mask’s ingredients soak in deeply. I’m always left very soft and healthy-looking hair. I would not recommend this mask for fine hair.

Clevos Shampoo Review 2022

Clevos shampoo

Clevos is an organic Korean Shampoo brand that is USDA certified organic, vegan and EWG verified. The ingredients Clevos uses undergoes an intense purification, blending and soaking process for over 1,000 hours to create the purest and most potent natural shampoo possible. Instead of being made of 80% water, the Clevos shampoos are made in a base of rosemary, eucalyptus or Rumohra extracts that provide plenty of scalp and hair benefits. There are three different types of Clevos shampoos, which are available on Amazon via official Amazon store Credithink. Toss aside your toxic Pantene and read on for my Clevos organic shampoo review.

Clevos shampoo

This review was kindly sponsored by Credithink, an official Amazon store of select natural Korean beauty including Clevos.

Credithink sent me all three of Clevos shampoos to try out, and I’ve enjoyed using all of them though two were ideal for my scalp type. Fun fact! If you’re familiar with the organic K-beauty brand Whamisa, both Clevos and Whamisa are made in the same facility.

Clevos shampoo

It’s rare to find a truly organic K-beauty brand let alone organic hair care from South Korea. There’s only a couple other brands I know that make clean shampoos that are already successful K-beauty skincare brands. The Clevos shampoos set themselves apart with their HUGE beautiful bottles that come with a very convenient pump dispenser. Not only do you get an organic product, but also traditional native herbs, fermentation technology and a luxurious experience.

In Korea, Clevos is actually famous for their safe baby products. Only the Clevos shampoo line is sold in the US (via Credithink Amazon Store).
Clevos shampoo

All three Clevos shampoos are a clear gel and each smell wonderful and not at all overpowering. The beauty of these shampoos lie in both their exterior aesthetic and the ingredients inside. Each shampoo is:

  • Environmental Working Group verified (Skin Deep Database)
  • BDIH Certified (International Organic and Natural Cosmetics Corporation)
  • USDA Certified Organic

The Clevos Foresta Shampoos are safe enough for the trickiest scalps:

  • Very dry & sensitive
  • Atopic scalp
  • Recent hair transplant
  • Infants
  • Pregnant/breastfeeding

Clevos shampoo

Clevos Rosemary Shampoo

Each Clevos shampoo is made up of a different base ingredient and the Rosemary one seems to be well-suited to oily scalps. The lather strength is strong for the Rosemary Shampoo as well as the Eucalyptus Shampoo. It has a subtle calming herbal scent.

Instead of water, the Clevos shampoo is made up of 70%+ Rosemary extract along with plenty of other hair-nourishing ingredients. There are no filler ingredients, artificial dyes, fragrance, silicones, phenoxyethanol or alcohols. Clevos Rosemary Shampoo contains:

  • Nettle Extract
  • Soybeen Seed Enzymes
  • Brown Rice Vinegar
  • Melissa Leaf Extract
  • Spirulina
  • Skullcap extract
  • Peony Root extract

Clevos shampoo
Clevos Eucalpytus Shampoo

If you love the scent of eucalyptus in the shower then Clevos Eucalyptus Shampoo might be right for you. This shampoo is suited to all hair types and lathers very well. The uplifting scent of eucalyptus is present but not too strong. It contains a base of over 75% eucalyptus leaf extract as well as:

  • Artemisia Extract
  • Calendula extract
  • Neem extract
  • Helichrysum Extract
  • Apple oil
  • Turmeric root extract

Clevos shampoo

Clevos Rumohra Shampoo (Dry Scalp)

The Rumohra Shampoo felt best suited to dry scalps as this feels like a gentler shampoo than the other two. I have a scalp that gets oily quickly and the Rumohra Shampoo wasn’t as strong as I’d like. The scent is somewhat root-y and earthy. It contains over 75% Rumohra extract as well as:

  • Wild Yam Root Extract
  • Rhodiola root extract
  • Dandelion leaf extract
  • Olive leaf extract

Vegamour Review: Is It Worth It?

Vegamour review

Vegamour first burst onto the scene with their all-natural GRO Hair Serum and now have a full-blown hair care line of hair growth-focused shampoos, conditioner, foam and supplements – all formulated to fight hair loss and shedding. Vegamour’s vegan and toxin-free formulas contain clinically proven ingredients and never any hormones or carcinogens. I have a brutally honest review of Vegamour GRO Hair Serum’s pros and cons in my original Vegamour review here with before and after. Vegamour’s serum isn’t a cheap habit to maintain, so these days I use the GRO Hair Serum around my gradually receding hairline only as thinning in this area is my main concern. I remember reading somewhere that Kim Kardashian once lasered off all her baby hair and lives to regret it now, because baby hairs make you look younger. So I’m now protecting my baby hairs at all cost. I do have to say that one of the coolest things about Vegamour is their 90 day no risk return policy. So if the products just don’t seem to be working for you, you can return them at any point within 3 months. In this Vegamour review, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the GRO Revitalizing Shampoo and Conditioner, GRO Scalp Detoxifying Serum, GRO Biotin Gummies and GRO Revitalizing Scalp Massager. As always, you can save 20% with my affiliate Vegamour discount code OBL, plus get free worldwide shipping.

30 Best Natural Organic Shampoos For All Hair Types 2022

Welcome to the ultimate guide to the best natural shampoos made with clean, organic ingredients. These non-toxic shampoos don’t contain harmful chemicals or hair-stripping sulfates. Caring for your hair is actually not that different from caring for your skin. We all have a hair type and hair porosity level that determines what the best organic shampoo for us would be. Natural and organic shampoos get the job done without harsh sulfates, parabens, silicones, synthetic color or chemical fragrance. It’s also important to understand that hair health starts at the root (aka follicle), which is why a healthy shampoo (and don’t forget diet) is the basis for good hair. The best natural and organic shampoos provide a satisfying deep cleanse and are non-toxic, pH balanced, and moisturizing. In 2022 there are plenty of clean & natural shampoo brands for thinning hair, fine hair, irritated scalp, dandruff, hair growth, oily roots and more. I’m sharing the best luxury and cheap natural shampoos and conditioners made with clean ingredients (plus a lot of these natural shampoos are on Amazon).

Best natural shampoos without chemicals

For healthy hair we need to make sure we’re continuously getting rid of the bad (product buildup, pollution, dirt) and adding the good (nutrient rich botanicals & oils, hydration and moisture). A lot of factors could be the cause of brittle, lifeless or thinning hair, including chronic stress, diet, lifestyle, genetics, water quality and improper hair care. It’s important to take a holistic approach to healthy hair and look at it from all angles, especially if you find that your hair products don’t seem to be working.

I’ve been through bottles and bottles of shampoo and even more conditioner, because I have very long hair. I have fine hair, but a LOT of it, and I tend to get oily roots and very dry lengths. For my very long hair, I focus on cleansing the scalp while using the suds to gentle cleanse the rest of my hair. I’ll periodically use a stronger clarifying shampoo or treatment to detox and remove product buildup. Most natural conditioners are not moisturizing enough for my damaged hair and suit normal hair better, but there’s a decent number of more moisturizing organic shampoos available now.

Pour yourself a glass of rose and read on for the best non toxic, natural shampoos and conditioners made with clean ingredients.

Best Natural Heat Protectants for Hair of 2022

I’ve rounded up the best natural and organic heat protectants that protect your hair from hot tools, UV rays and even pollution. A must in anyone’s hair arsenal, clean heat protectants will help prevent damage, tame frizz (they double as leave in conditioners!) and nourish strands with nutrient rich ingredients. If you’re looking to improve the health of your hair, toss out conventional hair products filled with useless filler ingredients, synthetics and harmful toxins. Those may be the real culprit behind lackluster, dull hair that’s constantly weighed down from product buildup. Instead, choose organic hair care brands that create high-performing hair styling products. So throw out your Kerastase and read on for the best natural heat protectants for hair!

15 Best Natural Hair Oils for Shiny Healthy Hair 2022

For shiny, healthy hair natural and organic hair oil treatments are an absolute must. The best clean hair oils act as deep treatments to help seal split ends, tame frizz, prevent breakage and grow longer, thicker hair. Everyone from ancient royalty to indigenous tribes have practiced the ritual of hair oiling using the finest ingredients from nature. In today’s modern world there’s no shortage of clean beauty brands making pre-blended, clinically researched organic hair oils for growth. Hair oils are crucial for shiny, healthy locks, and even help with hair loss and thinning concerns. While hair needs both hydration and moisturization, in this post we’re focusing on products that provide intense moisturizing benefits. I’ve battled damaged, chemically-proceed hair for most of my life, during which I’ve been making DIY hair oils and using tons of clean hair oil products. I’m sharing the best clean and natural hair oils for dry, frizzy and damaged hair. Softer, healthier and shinier hair awaits.

Hair oils will always work better as deep conditioning treatments when used with STEAM. It allows your hair to actually absorb the oils along with all the vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants.

Briogeo Review: Best & Worst Briogeo Products 2022

Briogeo review

Briogeo is a line of clean hair care products for ALL hair types and textures. Started in NYC by Nancy Twine, Briogeo is Black woman-founded and was acquired by Wella Company in April 2022. The company is committed to being clean, vegan, cruelty free and sustainable. You’ll find Briogeo widely accessible at ULTA and Sephora stores across the country, plus online at Amazon and their website. They offer a very wide range of shampoos, treatments, styling products and even hair supplements for every hair type, making it easier for you to find exactly what you need. So grab a tall glass of water, throw aside the John Frieda and read on for my Briogeo review!

Briogeo hair care

Briogeo is not an organic hair care brand and are not as natural as some of the other clean hair care brands out there, but many of their formulas are around 98% naturally derived (derived means the ingredient was once in its natural state but has been modified in a lab) with the inclusion of some organic ingredients. They also use EcoCert preservatives like benzoyl alcohol to preserve their formulas, which allows them to have a 24 month shelf life without the use of harmful preservatives. Briogeo goes by the 6-free methodology – they never formulate with sulfates, parabens, phthalates, silicones, synthetic dyes, or DEA.

The line is very expansive with seven types of collections to suit different hair types and needs:

  • Don’t Despair Repair for damaged, processed hair
  • Scalp Revival for irritated scalp
  • Blossom & Bloom for fine, thin hair
  • Farewell Frizz for frizzy hair
  • Hypoallergenic for sensitive scalp
  • Curl Charisma for curly, coily and wavy hair
  • Superfoods for dull hair needing shine

Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair Shampoo

Briogeo Shampoo Review

I tried three Briogeo shampoos, the Don’t Despair Repair Super Moisture Shampoo and two of their Scalp Revival Shampoos (Dandruff Relief Shampoo and Micro Exfoliating Shampoo). The Don’t Despair Repair Shampoo is my least favorite out of the Briogeo Shampoos.

Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair Shampoo

I’m sure Don’t Despair Repair Shampoo has a massive cult fan base as it’s a Briogeo bestseller, but I just didn’t enjoy the creamy milky gel consistency and scent all that much. It just wasn’t a wow product to me though it’s a decent shampoo if you have dry scalp that doesn’t need a strong cleanser.

This Super Moisture Shampoo, as you can guess by it’s name, is for dry and damaged hair and has panthenol, biotin and algae extract. It’s creamy yet still thin in consistency and provides a gentle lather that isn’t so strong it strips your scalp of moisture. For my hair I prefer to use a gel shampoo, but I can see myself occasionally using this on my dry lengths.
Don’t Despair, Repair! MegaStrength+ Rice Water Protein + Moisture Strengthening Treatment

Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair Treatment

One of my favorite products I’ve tried from Briogeo is their treatment. I believe this is where a brand can really shine for me personally as I have hair that’s been through decades of chemical processing – coloring, highlighting, balayage etc.

The Don’t Despair, Repair! MegaStrength+ Rice Water Protein + Moisture Strengthening Treatment is basically two treatments in one: a Protein Treatment and Moisture Treatment, that dispense as two separate products simultaneously.

It’s a silky medium-weight consistency that’s not as light as a conditioner but not very rich either. The rice protein complex protects hair from future damage + hydrates dry, brittle hair + supports healthy elasticity in your strands. The moisture treatment contains Squalane, Sweet Almond Oil, Biotin, Panthenol, Glycerin and more.

While Briogeo says this is a weekly treatment, I find it easy to use on every hair wash day. With my dry hair, my technique is to always apply treatments to dry hair so it can straight to the core of the strands and then use steam to help it absorb deeply.

Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Mask

Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Mask

If you’re looking for something very rich and moisturizing or have very coarse, dry, damaged hair, I would skip the Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Mask. This is a deep conditioning treatment for fine or normal hair as it’s on the lightweight side. This bestseller Briogeo mask is very much a regular conditioner for my hair than a mask. It’s made in a water base with rosehip oil, B-vitamins, algae extract and more.

Briogeo Scalp Revivla Dandruff Relief Shampoo

Briogeo Scalp Revival Dandruff Relief Shampoo

I appreciate a clean dandruff fighting shampoo as there aren’t that many options! This pain point solving Shampoo is great if you have an itchy, flaky, irritated scalp, and particularly suited for dry hair as it’s a very rich consistency. The Briogeo dandruff relief shampoo is made with charcoal + aha/bha with salicylic acid 3%.

Briogeo Scalp Revival Dandruff Relief Shampoo

The packaging isn’t the best though, because the container is rigid and tough to squeeze.

Because the Scalp Revival Shampoo is a very rich and moisturizing gel, I’m not sure very oily hair would enjoy this product.

It has a sharp tea tree and minty scent.

Briogeo Scalp Revival charcoal + coconut oil micro-exfoliating shampoo

Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo

This shampoo is actually a scalp scrub with shampoo benefits. It’s specifically formulated to help with a flakey, itchy scalp AND remove product buildup. The Briogeo Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo contains:

  • Binchotan charcoal to draw impurities from hair follicles
  • Vegetable-derived micro-exfoliators to remove product build-up
  • Peppermint and spearmint oils to reduce scalp itchiness
  • Tea tree oil to reduce scalp irritation and inflammation.

Briogeo Scalp Revival Micro Exfoliating Shampoo

It detoxifies, exfoliates, soothes, and balances the scalp for optimal scalp health and is a great addition to your existing shampoo routine for a more well-rounded hair care regimen. This scalp scrub doesn’t replace my shampoo, but I like to use it as a weekly or bi-weekly shampoo “treatment scrub.” You do not need to use a separate shampoo in the shower when using this because it does have cleansing agents  that allow it to foam.

Briogeo scalp Revival shampoo

A lot of times your scalp is irritated or overproduces oil because the follicles are clogged. In the same way we do for our skin, since scalp is skin, we need to regularly remove dead skin cells and product buildup.

The scent is much more subtle than the Dandruff Relief Shampoo, and while it’s still tea tree-esque there is added fragrance that smells like notes of something Amber/vanilla-y.

B. Well Vegan Omega Hair Supplement

B. Well Vegan Omega Hair Supplement

I like the formulation of the Briogeo hair supplement: Vegan Omega 3, 6, 9 + Biotin, proprietary blend of Ahiflower® Oil, the highest source of SDA, omega-3-6-9 fatty acids from a single plant, biotin and a micro-algae- derived DHA complex rich in omega-3.

B. Well Vegan Omega Hair Supplement
These softgels are derived from micro-algae and may have a marine odor. Noticing any hair changes is so subjective I don’t like to make claims with supplements, but I find this a very welcome addition to my supplement regimen for healthier hair from the inside out.

Briogeo B. Well Tea Tree + Eucalyptus Deodorant

Briogeo B. Well Tea Tree + Eucalyptus Deodorant

Men will love the Briogeo Tea Tree deodorant scent – women not so much. While I enjoy tea tree as say a body wash or something temporary on the skin, I don’t want to wear it as a perfume. But the mister really enjoys this one as it’s a total dude scent. It has a drier cream consistency so there’s no wet feeling.

Briogeo deodorant

The Briogeo Deodorant is made in an organic aloe base with coconut water, tea tree and eucalyptus and doesn’t contain aluminum, zinc, or baking soda.

Rahua Review: Best and Worst of Rahua Haircare 2022

Rahua haircare

Rahua creates luxury organic hair care using plant ingredients from the Amazon. One of the OG organic haircare brands, Rahua makes some of the best organic haircare products around. Many of Rahua’s hair products are supremely effective and high quality on a level you can’t find in any other line. But like every brand, Rahua has its hits and misses. Rahua products can also be super expensive, so they just aren’t accessible to a lot of people! Rahua harnesses the power of Amazonian Rahua, an oil used by Amazonian women for their hair for centuries. I’ve used the: Rahua Shampoo and Conditioners, Rahua Hair Mask, Rahua oil, detangler and Leave In Treatment.

VEGAMOUR’s hair growth serum has been raved about by thousands to help with alopecia and hair thinning and their before and after photos are so impressive, I had to try it out myself. If you decide to try VEGAMOUR, you can save 20% using my VEGAMOUR discount code OBL.

Rahua Detox & Renewal Treatment Review

Rahua Hair Detox & Renewal Treatment Kit 

This product is discontinued but I will leave this review up for anyone who might need it.

An intense organic hair treatment that has two functions: detox and renew, the Rahua Hair Detox and Renewal Treatment Kit is a standout product. I have not experienced a natural treatment system like this one Rahua has meticulously formulated ever. At $98 this is an expensive purchase, but the Rahua Hair Detox and Renewal Treatment Kit is totally worth the investment if your hair is in need of a makeover.

This Rahua Hair Detox and Renewal Treatment kit helps to loosen and remove synthetic product build up and environmental residue while infusing hair and scalp with much healthier plant based molecules. The Rahua treatment kit comes with enough product for 2 uses.

Rahua hair care

Rahua Hair Detox and Renewal Treatment kit comes with 2 jars each of Step 1.

Step 1 is a cream detoxifying base.

Step 2 is an oil blend of: sunflower, rahua, jojoba, argan ,sacha inchi, buriti fruit and palo santo. You mix Step 1 and Step 2 together, apply to wet or dry hair (I did on dry both times) for 20 to 30 minutes, then shampoo and condition as usual. The detoxifying base is made of Aloe, Green Tea Leaf, Molasses, Colza oil, Rosemary Leaf, Raspberry Leaf, Rahua oil, and Shea Butter.

The cost of theRahua Hair Detox and Renewal Treatment Kit is nearly a hundred, making each use about $50. So you betcha I put in each use for well over the recommended time. The first time I left the treatment in for 1 to 2 hours and also applied a warm towel continuously for about 20 minutes to let it seep into the hair follicles. Note that I applied most of the product to the scalp.

The results from the first use was in a word, transformative. Not because these are the marketing words used on their website, but because I saw that it had visibly transformed my hair. My hair had dried naturally looking practically like it does after a major deep conditioning and blowout at a hair salon – incredibly light as feather, bouncy, soft and super shiny. Many of you saw these results in my stories, and if you missed it, I saved the whole process under my Instagram Story Highlight “HAIR DETOX.”

For only 100% natural and organic ingredients and no miracle chemicals, I was pretty astounded and immediately thought holy grail. And not only does the Rahua Detox Renewal Kit condition and renew, but it detoxes hair from all the environmental pollutants and synthetic buildup that I’m sure has been plaguing my hair since I was born.

BUT, and there is a but, the 2nd time I used it I wasn’t impressed. I used the Rahua Kit a different way- as an overnight mask. If I had done this both times I would definitely not be recommending this Rahua product. But the first time I near fell off my chair from the results.

So the lesson here is, it’s better to leave the Rahua Hair Detox and Renewal Treatment Kit in max a few hours with a steam session than to leave it in overnight as the results are not compounded by leaving it in longer.

But I believe the Rahua Detox Renewal Treatment Kit is totally worth the purchase and have resolved to get it during Black Friday to use again when the seasons change.

In honor of Earth Month I interviewed Fabian and Anna of Rahua on what the company is doing to help the plant.

– What is Rahua’s current carbon footprint?

Through Rahua® by Amazon Beauty®, Inc.’s environmental work with Ecoagents, the nonprofit organization created to defend and protect the untouched natural areas of the world from damage, pollution and further destruction, with a special focus on the Amazon Rainforest, we have been able to preserve 37,500 hectors of pristine and biodiverse tribal lands deep in the Amazon for perpetuity.  Ultimately, producing oxygen and offsetting the carbon footprint for every single one of our customers, retail partners and more. We are proud to say we are beyond carbon neutral and generate oxygen surplus. Beauty is Power!

– How does Rahua strive to be a greener company?

Rahua® by Amazon Beauty®, Inc. is a green beauty company committed to sustainability in so many aspects. First and foremost, our formulas are created with rainforest grown, organic, plant-derived ingredients hand-harvested by the indigenous Amazonian tribes from self-sustain forests which help them sustain ancient traditions and grow their local economies. Rahua® promises to never harvest non-regenerative rainforest ingredients. Our ingredients are “Symbiotic®,” meaning they are grown wild (not farmed) and the makers are paid above fair trade.

The plastic package we use is PET #1 which is 100% recyclable, recycled worldwide and reused to make everything from park benches, designer carpets, clothing and lots more. Our potent plant-derived, organic ingredients create high-performance, concentrated formulas which require less usage than synthetic formulas. Less consumption reduces package use dramatically. In collaboration with our environmental group, Ecoagents, Rahua created the Pink Flamingos Project, a continuous environmental clean-up effort working with locals to clean natural habitat areas of the pink flamingos and other endemic species in the Galapagos Islands where trash washes ashore from garbage buildup in the ocean.

– Does Rahua have any sustainability goals it’s working towards?

Water conservation is extremely important to our planet. Water is the source of all life and we’re talking about our precious waterways and spreading the word that we all remember to care for this pure, sacred substance. We created Rahua to help keep our waters clean. When Rahua formulas wash down the drain, the plant-powered ingredients absorb into our waters and become nutrients for all types of life. We use natural and organic ingredients because we care deeply for our planet’s health, and for our clients. We encourage everyone to conserve water as much as possible and choose the right products that won’t harm our water systems.

– What are the toughest challenges in innovating to be greener?

To be a true green company, you must count your success by how much contamination you remove from the environment per each bottle that you put out there (sell).  The process of incorporating the most up to date organic, clean and natural ingredients in your products, including registrations tests, documentations, certificates, etc. and then explaining to your clients why this new version of their favorite product is better than the previous good one that they are used to, is a challenge.

– Any new product launches you can tell us about?

Our most recent product launch is Rahua Palo Santo Oil Perfume. Rahua® was the first hair care company to incorporate this natural oil into the brand’s hair and body care products as a natural preservation, along with its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties as well as its captivating, beautiful scent.  It has become a cult favorite and Rahua signature scent.

Palo Santo has incredible benefits and for centuries the people of the Andes have been using this compelling form of tree medicine for spiritual purification, healing, energy or cleansing. Along with shamans and saints, it is believed that many who seek a stronger spiritual connection with the world use Palo Santo to protect, heal, and experience a feeling of well-being.  Our Palo Santo oil is artisanal, made through traditional processes. Rahua® only uses naturally fallen, weather-aged wood and does not harvest live trees. Above and beyond preserving existing trees, we work with local communities to plant Palo Santo seedlings and balance the loss population over-harvested in other areas.

Rahua has now made this powerful, natural fragrance available in a perfect, purse size oil perfume. The fresh, sophisticated earthy scent, with sweet notes of citrus and gardenia enfleurage, is created with the highest quality, pure plant-derived essential oils. Housed in an elegant, sleek rectangular glass with a rollerball application, this energizing and uplifting scent cleanses “mala energía” (bad energy) and promotes positive thinking. It can be gently applied on pulse points throughout the day to bring positive energy to your wellness routine.
