Okay, this is the perfect product for my hair. Background- I have fine, long, wavy hair that gets super oily if I don't wash it everyday (and I damaged it the past few years with dying it, so my ends are dry as heck). I have searched high and low for a basic shampoo that was sulfate free and didn't leave my hair feeling greasy but actually cleansed my scalp without irritation. I had hoped to find something cheaper that I liked, but I end up spending more on shampoos because I don't like them then buy another. THIS, this shampoo gently cleanses my scalp and strands with a light scent that doesn't break me out. I am able to stretch my hair to 2 days now before I look like a grease ball, and that's all I could ever want. The matching conditioner pairs with it perfectly and gives me the best of both worlds for my oily scalp and dry ends. I don't even care about the price now because of how much I love it.
Tried this out for months. Within weeks my scalp was extremely itchy and dry! I now have bad dandruff which I've never had before, not even due to cold weather. I tried washing once a week at first and then 2-3 times a week to see if maybe it was buildup, but it's just made my scalp more irritated. I have pretty sensitive skin but no shampoo has ever made my head feel so awful. Got it on sale and now I understand why. This may not be tied to this shampoo but oddly enough around a few weeks to a month of use I developed mild alopecia and now have a bald spot on the top of my head that won't go away. I don't think the shampoo caused it (since it's my immune system attacking the hair cells) but I absolutely think it's made it worse by stressing the heck out of my scalp. Also weird that it developed just when I started using this. (It's the only change in my routine I had made) It has caused me to cover my hair everywhere I go due to the spot and gnarly dandruff. Just don't buy this. Save some $

I did enjoy this product. It lathers well and smells wonderful. My hair tends to be very oily and this product was light and cleansing for my hair type.

It smells so delicious but also works amazing! My hair feels so hydrated and looks so shiny after a good wash! I typically get the duo pack to save money!

I love love this shampoo. It is amazing for my hair, keeping it healthy and shiny, and does a good job cleansing without damaging it. I also love the clean ingredients and that it doesn't make me break out.

I wanted to love this so bad! It smells really good, and the packaging is super cute. I went through 2-3 bottles of it, gave my hair time to adjust to using this as my new shampoo and it really just dried out my hair so badly.
My hair starting breaking at the ends and I noticed that my scalp was so dry! The dryness led to my scalp ramping up on oil production and I've been trying to recover my hair!
Ultimately, I wouldn't recommend!

This shampoo is the best smelling shampoo i have ever owned and I love how well it cleans my hair. It is quite pricey for the amount but its a nice luxury experience.

This super gentle, super #cleanbeauty product is a staple in my shower. Makes my hair clean, shiny and soft and the smell of apple is somehow nostalgic.

First.. love love the smell of this one. Second ... it leaves my hair feeling healthier, shiny and smelling amazing abviously. It a clean veagan shampoo, it lathers really well and dosen't leave any residue and/or dries my scalp. I totally recommend this.

I really enjoyed this one too! Sadly it doesn't clean so well for oily hair. If you have dehydrated hair you're gonna love it. The packaging is super cute too!

made my hair feel completely dry and stripped. made it coarse and crunchy. was so tangled i couldnt even get a brush thru it.

I just want to preface this by saying that I really WANTED to like this shampoo. It smells like green apples, the packaging is adorable, and it's sulfate-free! So what's the problem?
It just doesn't work. I've tried this for a few days now, and every time it leaves my hair as oily as it started. I've used double the amount of shampoo, tried to rinse twice, and still I'm left with oily hair.
Now keep in mind, in general I have fine straight hair that gets oily very quickly. This works about the same way as any other over the counter shampoo would work on me, except I'm paying triple the price.
I have found a few shampoos that actually work on me, and I was hoping this one would be one of them, but unfortunately that is not the case. I can't speak on the effectiveness of this shampoo for someone with dry hair, but if you're someone like me with oily roots, I would skip this.

This shampoo seems gentle on my damaged hair. It has a beautiful apple matcha scent. The scent lingers in my hair for hours. It doesn't dry out my hair at all and leaves it feeling clean.

I have now finished the bottle after 3 months of using and I can tell a clear difference in my hair. I understand the hype around Briogeo and will continue to purchase this shampoo. It smells incredible and leaves my hair feeling new and refreshed.
kristenella from Austin
I love this amazing blend!! Your hair will smell fruity and delicious for days after using this shampoo, I also love the shine and volume that I have after a wash!
totalblondie128 from Richmond, VA
I like the clean ingredients and Briogeo's mission, but this shampoo just didn't do much for me. It cleaned my hair just fine but left it feeling a bit squeaky clean. For the price, it just didn't feel like a luxurious experience, nor did it do much for my hair.
kays35 from Chicago, IL
I really wanted to LOVE this but it's more of a like. I needed an alternative pregnancy shampoo and although this gets the job done and smells delicious, I often found it to leave my roots super greasy. I thought it was my error at first but after every shampoo it consistently ends up being greasy. Still a great shampoo just not for my hair type. Will try it once I give birth and see if maybe I just have too much oil production due to pregnancy.

The Briogeo matcha and apple replenishing shampoo (and matching conditioner) are designed to help dull and dehydrated hair.
The scent is amazing, but won't linger throughout the day. The formula is free of harsh sulfates, silicones, parabens, phthalates, artificial dyes, and DEA. The formula is centered around three key ingredients to help support healthy looking hair. The bottles are also big enough that if you don't wash very often or have a few shampoos in rotation, they'll last you a while.
For me, these were alright. The scent and ingredients are there, but for thin / fine hair it's a little too heavy. My hair looked lifeless, heavy, and greasy. I didn't mind using it every now and then for extra hydration, but consistently I didn't like the look it gave me.
That being said, if you're looking for haircare that has good ingredients and have medium / thick hair, this should work for you!

I loved this product, it left my hair very smooth and soft right away, great for damaged hair, overall one of my favorite hair masks
miab206 from Rochester, NY
I love the smell of this shampoo I could just sit in the shower smelling it all day! Definitely recommend it left my hair feeling soft and replenished for sure
Des from Dallas, Tx
I've been on the search for a new shampoo & conditioner this year & decided to try this one.
it leaves my hair so greasy & unclean. No matter how much I scrub my head in the shower, I'm having to use dry shampoo on freshly washed hair.
stefanig15 from United States
This shampoo leaves my hair soft and smelling clean! Giving it a try for the next couple of week. I'll be back to update. So far so good

Honestly, I know people always say this but this is my first review to ever write. With that being said, I had to let girlies that struggle like me for achieving healthy hair that it is possible. I have been through 3 sets of this shampoo and matching conditioner set, which is ($52) total for shampoo and conditioner. I have never had my hair this healthy and soft. I have blonde hair (naturally dirty blonde) and I had a bad experience with a salon and had chemical burns on my scalp and white-clear-orange-purple-yellow hair and I had to go to get it fixed by another hair stylist and it was 9.5 hours of color correcting. With that being said I really recommend this to anyone with damaged hair. (Note: I saw a lot of reviews that stated it was a watery texture…you have to emulsify in hands first and then it lathers so goooood)
naturallyavh from Swedesboro
This shampoo smells amazing! I have curly hair and it works so well with it. It leave my hair clean but not stripped of all its natural oils. Definitely would buy again.
corteslucy from Tucson, AZ
The number one thing I like about this shampoo, is the scent. It smells so good. It does really leave your hair shiny, but the price is just too steep. It doesn't lather much.
christineb202 from Miamisburg, OH
I was unsure how i would feel about this as first because of the size of the bottle for the price. For me, it's important to have a very clean ingredient shampoo due to my severe allergies. I didn't have any problems with this product, i love how it smells as it is very light apple scent. I initially thought i would need a lot of product to shampoo, turns out a little goes a long way as it foamed up real quick once it hit my wet hair. overall, you get more than you realize, size isn't always as it appears once you start application!
