Finally, a Dry Shampoo That’s Good for Hair?

Share the love!

While my unruly hair certainly has plenty of volume through the ends (I was essentially a walking triangle as a teenager until I discovered hair serum), I sadly don’t have tons of it at the roots (probably due to the weight of my enormous triangle hair).

And although it doesn’t bother me hugely, there are times when it’s nice to get a bit more volume going so I thought I’d check out Briogeo’s Scalp Revival Charcoal + Biotin Dry Shampoo.



This is new, up-to-date information. We updated this article in April 2024 to add our further thoughts on this product, complete with updated prices.


Briogeo’s Scalp Revival Charcoal + Biotin Dry Shampoo

A non-aerosol dry shampoo that refreshes hair and supports a healthy scalp, this product absorbs excess oil and extends the time between washes. 

It’s a workable scalp-friendly formula that uses nutrient-rich ingredients to balance oil production, leaving hair clean and voluminous.

It also smells great, featuring whipped cream infused with fresh mint and a warm vanilla finish, and leaves no visible residue (yey!)

It’s also sulphate, silicone, and paraben-free.


On the hair

For me the results (while not quite as ‘oh wow’ impressive as something like IGK’s First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo) are a natural looking, gentle volume and a noticeable dry shampoo effect.

The combination of binchotan charcoal, biotin, witch hazel, clay, tapioca and rice starch complex leaves my hair feeling soft (so no weirdly stiff post-dry shampoo feels here).

For application, the brand recommends shaking and then squeezing the bottle directly in the middle for a more even result.

What other people have to say

While eco-conscious buyers like myself like the idea of a non-aerosol product, it can be a little unpredictable. Customers on the Briogeo website agree, with one saying “Light, smells nice, doesn’t leave my hair feeling gross, crusty and dried out! My only complaint is that the application is a little unpredictable.”

Another writes “BEST dry shampoo I’ve ever used. Light, and super effective. You just need a little to make a difference.”


The takeaway

While this doesn’t add crazy back-combed levels of volume, overall this adds just enough to give hair a natural, healthy look – and I’m a fan.

And as a bonus, I don’t need huge amounts of product to get the desired effect.

Meanwhile, the wealth of hair-healthy ingredients here (and the absence of alcohol, an ingredient in many dry shampoos) makes me feel slightly less guilty about using this on my day three hair instead of, you know, actually washing it.

Great for: A noticeable dry shampoo effect which my day three hair appreciates. Natural hair product fans.

Not-so-great for: Those who like their dry shampoo with more of an oil-absorbing kick (and if so I recommend taking a look at my review of IGK’s First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo). This is also a little fiddly to apply (and definitely not recommended anywhere windy/outdoors) as the ultra-fine powder has a habit of getting away from me a little as I move it onto my scalp. To be honest though, from an environmental/waste perspective I really like that this isn’t another aerosol dry shampoo-as easy as they are to use.

Briogeo’s Scalp Revival Charcoal + Biotin Dry Shampoo 50g is £22.00 on the Boots UK website/$25.00 on the Briogeo US website
