I was really excited when Antidotestreet asked if I was interested in reviewing Briogeo's Be Gentle Be Kind Avocado and Quinoa co-wash. After reading many reviews raving about how great it was, I knew I just had to give it a try.
Be Gentle Be Kind co-wash is a cleansing conditioner, it's detergent-free and hydrating all in one step. So in other words it cleans like a really gentle shampoo that doesn’t leave hair in a harsh, stripped and dry state. Instead it cleans, conditions and moisturises the hair at the same time. Kind of like a shampoo and conditioner mix but with more moisture.
The first thing I noticed was the gorgeous sweet avocado smell and the thick smooth texture the shea butter gave it. The thick consistency really helped make the application and detangling process smooth. This meant there were no drops turning the bath into a slipping hazard and all the tangles and knots all seemed to melt away like butter.
To see how effective the Briogeo Be Gentle Be Kind co-wash was at cleansing my hair, I used a hot oil treatment beforehand which I had left in for 1 hour. I wet my hair and applied the co-wash all over, hair and scalp. In the beginning I was a little sceptical because it felt l like I was applying thick conditioner to my already oily hair as there was no lather. On the bottle it says to massage for one minute but as I like a good head massage I massaged for 2-3 minutes.
Once my whole head was covered I continued massaging under the shower and started to feel the Be Gentle Be Kind co-wash working! It lathered just a little but was very effective at cleaning my scalp and hair strands just like a shampoo.
I really liked the Be Gentle Be Kind co-wash as it does live up to being a 4-in-1. It cleansed, conditioned, de-tangled & nourished my hair all in one step!
Briogeo Be Gentle Be Kind co-wash is great for when you may want to restyle on clean hair mid-week, if you go gym or swimming and don't want to over shampoo our hair. Its a great way to clean without stripping your hair of its essentials oils.
