The Briogeo Guide to Double Cleansing For Your Scalp

Our scalps are often an overlooked step in our skincare routine, but they shouldn’t be—because when you think about it, your scalp is actually an extension of your skin! Skin gurus everywhere know that the secret to healthy, radiant skin involves a solid double cleanse routine for your face. We’re getting in on the action with a double cleansing routine for your scalp that will create the best environment to support your healthiest hair growth.
Why are we so excited about double cleansing for your scalp? Here are some of the benefits:

- A well-cleansed and exfoliated scalp sets the stage for healthier-looking hair with less flakes

- Reduced itchiness, dry, irritation, and inflammation

- Creates the ideal environment for healthy hair growth 

Let’s dive into all things double cleansing and how to use our Scalp Revival™ collection and our NEW Scalp Revival™ Dandruff Relief Shampoo Charcoal + AHA/BHA with our Scalp Revival™ Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo to give your scalp the TLC it deserves!


What is double cleansing?

Double cleansing is the act of cleansing twice to provide a deep cleanse for your skin while simultaneously prepping your skin for any additional products (toners, serums, moisturizers) that you’ll layer on. 

The first cleanse helps to loosen and remove excess oil, dead skin cells and buildup while prepping your skin/scalp to better absorb the second cleanse.

The second cleanse ensures that you’re washing away all of the dirt and impurities.

Double cleansing for your skin relies on two different types of cleansers: 

Oil-based cleansers: Starting with an oil-based cleanser helps to cut through product buildup, sebum, sunscreen, and environmental pollution. 

Water-based cleansers: Following up with a water-based cleanser helps to wash away the sweat, loosened dead skin, and dirt for revitalized, fresh, and glowing skin.

The magic of double cleansing consists of creating a prepped canvas (your skin) to allow toners, serums, creams and lotions to penetrate beyond the superficial layers of your skin.


Why is double cleansing good for your scalp?

The secret to a healthy, flake-free scalp? Double cleansing! By doubling up on the types of exfoliation you’re using, plus adding in essential hydration, you will see and feel transformative results.

Here’s a few reasons why we love double cleansing for your scalp:

By using our physical exfoliant Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo first, it gently removes the layer of dry flakes, dirt, and grime and sets your scalp up to absorb all the benefits of our NEW Dandruff Relief Shampoo Charcoal + AHA/BHA. 

You do NOT need to have extensive dandruff or scalp conditions to use this product! Our latest addition to the Scalp Revival™ lineup is formulated for anyone who wants to soothe a dry, irritated, itchy scalp.

Perfect for the maintenance of a healthy scalp.

Great for all hair types and textures. 

When it comes to your scalp, physical exfoliation followed by a chemical exfoliant (link to Everything You Need to Know About AHA’s and BHA’s when it’s live)is key. You can think of the chemical exfoliant portion of your double cleansing routine as the toner/liquid exfoliant step in your skincare routine. 

Want an extra boost of hydration for your scalp? Follow up with our Charcoal + Tea Tree Cooling Hydration Scalp Mask to soothe irritation, replenish lost moisture,  and provide a cooling sensation on an irritated or sensitive scalp. Think of this as your face moisturizer step of your skincare routine.

Finish with a few drops of our Charcoal + Tea Tree Scalp Treatment to provide added moisture and a dose of witch hazel to help normalize oil production. Think of this as your spot treatment step to target any specific areas that need extra attention.
