Most Helpful Positive Review PERFECT for the right hair type
I use this twice a week and absolutely love it. I actually chatted with one of the reps at Briogeo to help pick out the best products for my hair type. From this, I learned that my hair type was in need of moisture/ hydration NOT repair. I had used the repair line before and found that it made my hair stringy due to the protein in it! If you have color/chemical damage you need things to repair your hair. If you have hair that "feels" damaged but haven't actually damaged it from color or chemicals, you may benefit from hydration so this mask may be what you need. It's done wonders for my hair and as a bonus, I never get any greasy spots nor does my hair feel weighed down! My natural wavy hair looks so smooth (almost as if I heat styled it) and therefore can let my hair air dry and go! I will say that this is part of my "self-care" so I usually put this in after I shower, put it up in a bun and leave it for like 30-45 minutes. I'm also a yoga teacher so sometimes I'll put it in my hair before class, throw it in a bun, and when I get home to shower, I'll rinse it out! I think this mask is great, but great for my hair type (might be less effective for others). Give it a try if you have similar hair to mine also the smell is unrealistically smell.... but nothing perfume-y. It smells more edible than anything else!
Most Helpful Critical Review OK hydration, overpowering scent
I bought this mask because my hair can sometimes get sensitive to protein. When I opened the jar, the scent kind of hit me in the face, but I wanted to give it a shot anyway. As others have noted, this mask has no slip. It feels like it just sits on top of the hair and doesn't really penetrate strands. The hydration level once I got out of the shower seemed only average—not much better than what a daily conditioner does. That combined with the really strong perfume-y smell means I won't be buying it again.

This product is like butter for your hair. Smells lovely and after your rinse if feels opulent. I have thick hair that needed some attention at the ends but turned out my entire hair needed from root to ends. Highly recommend if you're on the verge.
Rebecca from California
I bought this to mix my purple shampoo with and it leaves my hair hydrated (:
Love the smell
Christina from Long Island
Beautiful smell, it hydrates but does not hydrate as well as a hair mask that touts mega moisture should. I feel like I have plain conditioners that are more hydrating sadly.
Just as good as the dont despair repair mask!!
Hannah from USA
My hair is colored and I do weekly masks. I usually use the dont despair repair hair mask from Briogeo, but I wanted to try this one. It's just as good and definitely moisturizes and hydrates my hair.
SSmith202222 from Illinois
Has a very creamy consistency but no slip. It does have a light sweet scent. I did not have to use much of the product and I applied to wet hair. My hair felt good-hydrated after rinsing. After my hair dried, it felt soft. I was underwhelmed with this mask. Overall, it was just ok.
Struggling to make it through a travel size
JordieBear94 from Las Vegas, NV
Had to cut off about 2" of hair because it became so dry and brittle after using this. I had really high hopes for Briogeo, but this failed me.
I would not buy this again, in fact I will be returning it!
Kj from Fl
I used it twice and my hair felt terrible, tangled mess! Save your money! I think drug store brands work better than this over priced product!
Cebe from Ohio
This promos horrible. I was not able to even comb through my hair because this product made my hair so hard. If you have coarse curly hair then I would stay away from this product because you will have a mess of hard tangled hair. Product over hyped.
I LOVE IT!
Curly girl from MI
I received a sample and I'm so glad I did, I'm going to go buy a large bottle soon. It makes your thirsty dry hair super soft.
Amazing for Damaged or Recovering Hair
KC from Florida
I have read the reviews on color treated or bleached hair and it's a definitely a no for them but for damaged or recovering hair YES!!! I have noticed how much softer and healthier my hair has felt since I have decided to let my hair grow and recover. Highly, HIGHLY recommend buying this. It's worth the money!!!
BEWARE: strips hair of moisture and causes major shedding
L from Minnesota
Let me start this off by stating I have loved all the other Briogio products I have tried, and debated on posting this, however, this mask is frankly awful. I was looking for something protein free that would be moisturizing, and this is not in any way moisturizing. Not only was it VERY drying, it made my hair fall out in handfuls. I tried this mask multiple times just to make sure I wasn't just having an " off day." and every time was awful. And after reading other reviews, I'm definitely not the only one who experienced extreme dryness and shedding with this mask. I wish I would have read the reviews sooner, I'm so disappointed.
Jadeb from US
I wasn't too sure about it the first time I used it but I let it stay for longer and my hair was so soft! definitely worth the price
Stephanie from Sonoma, California
I just used this in the shower and when I put it in my hair it smelled INCREDIBLE! Super moisturizering!
Hydration and nutrition
Allie from Irvine, CA
It works! Love the smell of it! Deep nourishment for hair, makes it soft and less frizzy. I have fine dry hair that definitely needs help. I really like the mask and use it twice a month as a deep conditioner for 20-30 minutes with a shower cap and a hot head on my hair for deeper nourishment.
Valerie from New York
This product has super slip and my hair is well moisturized. I had it stored away until I used open products. It was worth the wait and every penny.
Ann from The Woodlands, TX
I was reluctant to try this mask after reading some of the comments. My hair tangles easily, is super dry, and I'm highly sensitive to fragrance. Well, this mask did not disappoint. I was able to detangling my hair with ease, the moisture was amazing, and the fragrance was pleasant and not overpowering. This is definitely a keeper!!!!!
Hair or Hay
Gracie from Pennsylvania
This hair mask made my blonde color treated hair turn into hay! Maybe it is not good for those who color treat. I've been using it after my shampoo every few days. My hair was shedding like an animal. Thought I needed to cut off inches at my next hair appointment. I used my regular conditioner today and my hair feels a million times better. I would caution those who have already dry hair!
Not Worth The Hype
Ash from Ohio/North Carolina
It isn't a bad product but it isn't worth the hype it gets. I have medium length, THICK, wavy hair. It's nice but nothing special. Maybe people with really dry hair love this? And since I don't have really dry hair I don't find it doing much? I'll use it till it's gone but not repurchase.
Lee from New York
Love this mask and recommend it to everyone I know. It leaves your hair feeling so soft. I also enjoy the smell. At first I was put off by it but i think as I got used to it, I liked the smell more. No protein in this mask so it really is just a hydrating mask but it definitely does what it claims to do. I have bought this 5 times already!!
Great product but the smell isn't for me.
Mary from Martinsburg, WV
I've used the product twice now and I really like how my hair feels. The only complaint I have is the smell. The smell reminds me of a cheap little girl body spray.
Ehh. Not for me??
CC from TX
I was really excited to try this mask, however I definitely do not enjoy this product. After a few uses, I feel like this mask just does not really do anything for my hair. I have waist, almost hip length blonde hair. I love using hair masks to keep my hair healthy and hydrated. This mask didn't seem to add any extra softness, shine or conditioning. Instead it made my hair feel like I had just used a really poor quality conditioner. My hair felt and looked much less soft and hydrated after using it. I personally love the Amika hair mask and think it works wonders. This mask just doesn't compare. But everyone's hair is different, so maybe it'll work great for someone else.
Smells like cotton candy!
Nix from Kirkland WA
I'm amazed some people aren't excited for the smell. I want more of this because it smells like cotton candy and it's amazing!
KC from NC
Love this mask! Repurchased the full size after receiving a sample. Incredibly conditioning; I have non-oily/non-dry and straight hair and use it once a week. The smell is nice as well.
2 words BUY IT, 2 more words STOCK UP!
Mystique from MA
I have been using this mask consistently for several months and I must say it has been a game changer for my natural hair. I had some damage in the middle of my head that was improved by this mask. I was shocked by how little I needed for each application and how well I was able to detangle. Also too, I sometimes had to space out how often I used this because my hair felt too moisturized. My curls are always happy, springy, hydrated and healthy with this mask- a staple in my routine!
NayaPapaya from New York
I love this hair mask! and I used quite a few. My curls look and feel so moisturized.. The best part is that you don't have to leave it in too long just 10-15 mins I've used others that required 30-60 minutes which is too much time for me. Don't think about it just buy it!
