I LOVE this deep conditioning mask. I have to admit that I was a little scared to use it because my hair gets so greasy and I hardly use any conditioner. But my new hair stylist said I need a product to keep my hair moisturizer because the dryness is making it tangle. I was not disappointed! I've only used it once so far, and love the results. I put it all over my wet hair in the shower, left it on for 10 minutes like it says too, then really really rinsed it. After ward, I let my hair towel then air dry for about 10 minutes before I brushed it. Admittedly, my hair was kind of tangled, but I just got a new product to help with that and then brushed it out. I blow dried my hair to finish up. My hair looks so soft and silky and smooth now! And it smells so good!!!
This is hands down the absolute WORST hair product I've ever tried and I have tried many in my 30 years on Earth. It smells nice but that doesn't mean anything when it doesn't do what it claims to at all! I will flat out spare you the time of reading if you'd like by saying that you won't be doing yourself any favors by buying this expensive garbage. If you want to know exactly why I feel this way, read on.
I had heard nothing but good things about this brand and while it's possible the other products are good, this one is terrible! (I also tried the shampoo with it beforehand and it wasn't anything to rave about either.)
I applied a good amount to my long hair and put a shower cap on. Left it on for about 15 minutes and when I rinsed, my hair felt coarse and brittle. I don't usually have such an issue with tangles but because I color treat my hair every once in a while, I am sure to do deep conditioning treatments on my hair once or twice a week, depending. I was out of my usual favorite and decided I wanted to try something different, what a mistake! I have naturally straight hair with a bit of a wave and it is on the thicker side so I always make sure to condition. I also rarely do any heat styling on my hair so it isn't immensely damaged. I get compliments on my hair by my stylist because it's usually in great condition. This actually made my hair much worse and drained it of any moisture I might have had. I have a leave-in spray from a trusted brand that I use after the shower and I had to put a lot of that in and it took me over an hour to get ALL of the tangles out of my hair. Anyone with long hair knows how much of a burden that can be.
I was really enthusiastic about trying this product, especially since it is mostly natural ingredients but was sorely disappointed. I returned it the next day and got my money back. If I could give it zero stars I absolutely would.

Definitely wouldnt use thing again. For the price and how it made my hair .. definitely not worth it. It just dried out my hair and never made it smooth. Also, I dont feel like it helped the damage at all.
katieh353 from Waukee
I started off by getting the tester size and quickly realized I was going to need to purchase the bigger tub! This stuff makes my hair feel crazy soft and after it's been dried, it looks so smooth, no frizzy ness, and smells absolutely amazing!
anniec82 from Galveston, TX
if I had enough time to use this every single day, I would!! it makes my hair feel amazing and it smells so good too! I typically rake it through my hair and then leave it on for an hour (or more when I get distracted)! can't say enough good things about this!
helenak25 from United States
I was surprised when this mask did not feel as hydrating as I had imagined. I realize it is a repairing mask and not a hydrating mask but it could have used more hydration. It was not bad but for the price it could have been better.
Amelia from Boston
I was a little nervous to try with hair mask based on the mixed reviews on here. But I'm happy I got it! I'm currently planning to go blonde from jet black hair, and want to bleach my hair in stages. In between a session, I'll use this mask twice a week to replenish and add moisture. It works great, only downside is the price. I haven't tried any other alternative masks that give this result for a cheaper price, so this mask is great for now!

This is the DEAL! My hair was cashed, and after a few uses of this genius conditioning treatment and My hair was actually manageable enough to wear down until I was able to get in for a trim with my girl. Now that's impressive!￼
haileyp87 from United States
Because I straignen my hair so much I was looking for a really good hair mask, and this one changed my hair. I absolute love it. It gave my hair a deep cleanse that I much needed!!
sarac391 from United States
Once again I find myself loving yet another product from Briogeo. They always leave my hair less frizzy.
mckennac12 from Elgin
Way more lightweight than what I thought it would be because if it's popularity. It wasn't bad by any means but I thought it would have done more for the price. It did not live up to the popularity in my opinion!!
Shay from San Diego, CA
I used half the container already and it has done nothing.
Veronica from To
Smells way too strong! The bear edition is worst like it's worst that when someone with too much perfume walks by
Tori-tillaaaa from Puente hills
The only product that has actually reconstructed my hair as it was super processed from bleaching. I love love love this hair mask as well as the green hair mask from Briogeo too!! 💚💚💚
steph from Bronx ny
It kind of put body back into my hair and it's not heavy, but no slip so I had to add another conditioner to detangle .... I think it's too expensive in that case...
curlypattyy from United States
Very moisturizing and has a good smell. Does a good job detangling but could definitely be better. Texture is also not too thick.
courtneyc222 from Davenport, FL
I really love this conditioning mask. It smells great and really helped keep my hair moisturized after I used it. Definitely recommend this product!
jasdipkcb2e from Easton, PA
I love love this product! Have been using it for years in place of a conditioner! Totally worth it, i have thickly frizzy curly hair and this is perfect to help it hydrate.

The later was great to shampoo with
lmichelleb13 from Kensett, AR
I enjoy using this mask and it definitely leaves my hair visibly more hydrated and shiny after I use it. It is super pricey for what it is and I find theEva NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask much more hydrating, nourishing and the fragrance is much more appealing to me.￼￼
star524 from Brooklyn, NY
This has helped my hair from breakage, and falling out. This helped bring my hair back to life. Moisturizes my scalp and hair texture, stronger, and healthier
leahj44 from United States
I liked this a lot, very deep conditioning. I especially like using it after a deep clean shampoo to restore any moisture loss. The only downside is despite the instructions saying to use throughout your hair I wouldn't recommend using it on your roots if you have fine hair. Mine ended up greasy looking after a few hours. Overall a pretty good product and will probably buy again at some point.
strialss from Alexandria, VA
This is my go to hair mask! It's so hydrating and always does good to my hair. I have seen improvement with consistent usage!
molliemb12a from Moorpark, CA
I love all Briogio products and this mask is really nice for my long hair. My hair isn't super color damaged but I definitely haven't prioritized haircuts during the past few years so it's really nice to have a mask that seems to heal my hair the next day.
hapy2gethr from Riverside, CA
A great product. It hydrates and smooths your hair., Repairing the damage from processing and appliances. I highly recommend this for anyone who styles their hair daily.
karat22 from United States
Not sure what the hype surrounding this product is all about. If you don't damaged hair, probably stay away. It actually made my hair more dry and brittle from all the protein. I was really excited, but this wasn't for me. I prefer their honey moisture version, and it smells better
caryann from Flower Mound, TX
This is a repairing conditioner with a thick consistency. Comes in a tub container. You scoop out the mask. Smells powdery. This is a good repairing mask for fine hair without a lot of damage. I like to use this when I need a little repair on the ends of my hair. [product:briogeo-dont-despair-repair!-deep-conditioning-mask] It's a 10 mask is better for deep conditioning.
