Dandruff on its own isn’t cute, and it’s especially unattractive on dark brown hair, where a flaky scalp and product buildup is magnified 10 times over. And because I’ve been fortunate enough to inherit strands with both of these qualities, I get a bit more excited than your average gal when a new product surfaces with an intent to treat an irritated scalp that’s more than just a boring shampoo. The latest line that has me (and my hair) beyond intrigued is Briogeo’s new Scalp Revival Collection, launching April 22: An innovative, three-part system comprised of a Charcoal + Biotin Dry Shampoo ($24), Charcoal + Tea Tree Scalp Treatment ($32) and Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo ($42) designed to heal itchy, flaky scalps and clear product buildup for a squeaky-clean canvas.
The collection as a whole contains impressive key ingredients including Binchotan charcoal to absorb impurities like oil, dirt and excess product, witch hazel to normalize oil production and control an oily scalp, tea tree oil to reduce flakes while boosting hair growth and peppermint and spearmint oils to soothe itchiness and maintain a healthy scalp pH, but each product also boasts brow-raising features you won’t be able to get enough of.

The dry shampoo is infused with biotin to encourage healthy hair growth and is a completely dry powder instead of a traditional spray we’re used to seeing in order to minimize buildup on the scalp. Instead, the powder absorbs impurities instantly with help from charcoal, clay and natural starches for a more thorough, fresh-feeling clean between washes. As for the scalp treatment, it balances the scalp’s pH with tea tree, ginger and peppermint, treating the issue at its source instead of simply temporarily relieving itchiness or discomfort, which would likely leave it to return the next day (been there). And last but not least, the packaging isn’t the only thing that sets the shampoo apart from the ones already in your shower: The formula exfoliates, removes dead skin and impurities from the scalp and entire length of your hair, soothes irritation, minimizes dandruff and restores moisture in one wash—all while smelling exactly like a Thin Mint cookie.
With a lineup of products that’s original enough to keep you on your toes while using them and effective enough to keep you coming back, why wouldn’t you want to show your scalp some extra TLC?
