exclusive· limited edition· buzzworthy· online only
$32.00

Which hair type is it good for?
✔ Wavy
✔ Curly
✔ Coiled
✔ Tightly Coiled

What it is:
A non-lathering, conditioning cleanser that removes impurities without stripping hair of color or natural oils.

Key benefits:
- Hydrates dry, course hair
- Detangles and increases manageability
- Lifts away impurities without stripping

If you want to know more…
Unlike many traditional shampoos, the non-lathering Be Gentle, Be Kind™ Avocado + Quinoa Co—Wash is so hydrating, you typically won’t need to follow up with a conditioner. The formula’s high-slip nature makes for easy detangling and manageability, creating hair that feels soft, hydrated, and tangle-free. It is recommended for those with textured, thick, coarse, curly, or dry hair, and even helps to extend color—nourishing chemically-treated, relaxed, or keratin-treated hair. Hair that’s thick is typically on the dryer side of the spectrum, which tends to mean hair oils don’t spread as intensely through the hair shaft as with thinner or finer hair. Contrary to sudsing shampoos—which can cause higher levels of oil loss—this super-creamy cleanser leaves hair looking luxuriously quenched.

What else you need to know:
This product is free of silicones, gluten, artificial fragrances, and artificial dyes. It is also vegan-friendly, cruelty-free, and contains 91 percent naturally-derived ingredients.

The Briogeo brand was inspired by a family tradition of making natural beauty products at home in the kitchen of founder Nancy Twine. Nancy believes the answer to beautiful, healthy, and charismatic hair exists within nature's own ingredients.
