Why You Should Be Using a Scalp Mask

The key to a healthy scalp is more than just regular shampoos and conditioning sessions. When it comes to caring for your scalp, it often gets overlooked as part of your skincare routine. You exfoliate, wash, and moisturize the skin on your face—so why would you neglect to do the same for your scalp? 

Your scalp is literally a continuation of the skin that’s on your face and body, so it requires just as much TLC and attention. If your scalp is stressed out from dryness, irritation, flakes, and itchiness, here’s the perfect remedy: treating it to a nourishing, deeply hydrating, and naturally powered scalp mask. 

All hair and scalp types can benefit from a scalp mask. Tapping into naturally powerful ingredients like Binchotan charcoal, and tea tree and peppermint oils sets the stage for optimal scalp health. Applying a hydrating, nourishing and soothing scalp mask is a must-have at any stage of a healthy hair journey. Let’s discover what makes scalp masks so special.


What are scalp masks?

Scalp masks are very similar to our favorite facial masks—they moisturize the skin and replenish lost hydration for optimal balance. A scalp mask like our Scalp Revival™ Charcoal + Tea Tree Cooling Hydration Scalp Mask is fortified with restorative, scalp-healthy ingredients that soothe, balance, and hydrate your scalp for long-term health of your scalp and hair. It’s also clinically shown to increase scalp hydration by up to 144%.



Why is it important to use a scalp mask?

As the pioneers of scalp care, we know that Scalp Care = Healthy Hair™. When our scalps are congested with dead skin cells, bacteria, dirt, excess oil and impurities, it’s very difficult to cultivate the correct environment for healthy hair growth. When the delicate skin on your scalp is imbalanced and congested, it can’t properly absorb the nourishment, vitamins, and minerals from our scalp care products.

Implementing a scalp mask into your wash day routine isn’t just relaxing, it’s also packed with hydrating and nourishing benefits that encourage the long-term health of your scalp and hair:

Exfoliates and detoxifies by removing any impurities, dirt, oil, build up and dead skin cells to prep and prime your scalp to better absorb products

- Soothes and calms a dry, irritated, itchy scalp
- Restores essential hydration, post-exfoliation
- Reinvigorates a stressed out scalp
- Balances oil production
- Protects a vulnerable scalp from harmful UV rays and free radical damage


How to choose the best ingredients for your scalp concerns

An itchy, dry, irritated scalp suffering from buildup craves a unique blend of ingredients to decongest the buildup and create the optimal environment for healthy hair growth. Choose a scalp mask that includes bacteria-fighting ingredients that soothe, cool, and re-hydrate your scalp. We’ve packed our Scalp Revival™ Charcoal + Tea Tree Cooling Hydration Scalp Mask with the scalp-healthy ingredients to help you instantly calm your irritated scalp and provide the best nutrients for long-term health:

Binchotan charcoal: Detoxifies the hair and scalp by absorbing impurities and buildup

Peppermint Oil: Provides an instant cooling effect on your scalp, and reduces itchiness and irritation

Tea tree oil: Reduces flakiness, itchy inflammation and promotes a clean, invigorated scalp


How to incorporate a scalp mask into your routine

Use our Scalp Revival™ Charcoal + Tea Tree Cooling Hydration Scalp Mask whenever you need to refresh, detoxify and deep-condition your scalp. If your scalp is feeling congested, itchy, dry or irritated you’ll know it’s time to reach for a hydrating and nutrient-rich scalp mask. For best results we recommend:

Step 1: Using our Scalp Revival™ Charcoal + Tea Tree Cooling Hydration Scalp Mask, on damp hair, after you exfoliate with our Scalp Revival™ Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo

Step 2: Massage your scalp with your fingertips and let the mask work its magic (and enjoy the instant cooling sensation)! Pro tip: Use our Scalp Revival™ Stimulating Therapy Massager to massage your scalp for a spa-like experience that boosts circulation. 

Step 3: Allow the mask to sit for up to 10 minutes 

Step 4: Rinse thoroughly and follow up with your favorite Briogeo conditioner or nourishing hair mask.



Try a multi-masking routine

Multi-masking is a great way to target and treat multiple hair concerns simultaneously. Applying your scalp and hair masks at the same time gives you a luxurious deep conditioning treatment that saves time and directs attention where your strands and scalp need it the most. 

Want to really get the most out of your mask day routine? Start multi-TASKING while you multi-mask. We love making a latte, freshening up our manicure, calling a friend, or checking up on emails while our hair and scalp masks work their magic for those 10 minutes of self-care a week.

Incorporate this ultimate multi-masking routine into your healthy hair regimen—after you cleanse your hair with your favorite Briogeo shampoo on “mask day,” get ready to reap the benefits of multi-masking;

Step 1: Treat your scalp to our Scalp Revival™ Charcoal + Tea Tree Cooling Hydration Scalp Mask, which works to detoxify, soothe, and replenish vital hydration to the scalp with a cooling effect.

Step 2: While the scalp mask works its magic, choose a Briogeo hair mask that best targets what your hair is craving to treat your hair at the same time:
