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.

i have damaged bleached hair so i bought this hoping it would help but honestly it made it worst , it's didn't condition at all , waste of money , maybe it works on virgin hair but not bleached hair .
Amber L from Michigan
I am so happy I decided to buy this product. It is hands down the best mask I have ever used. I just bleached my hair and it was looking/feeling a little rough. This mask worked wonders! It made my hair look and feel normal again. So soft, shiny and healthy. I will be buying more.

I've been using heat on my hair for 2 years straight but I recently stopped using heat and I'm trying to repeat my hair from all the damage. I have 1b to 1c hair and my hair can get really dry AND THIS MASK IS MY HLOY GRAIL. I wet my hair, put on the mask, and let it sit for 30 minutes. When I wash it out I use cold water and OH MY GOD I SEE IMMEDIATE RESULTS. This is definitely a moisture maks, though, so if you're trying to fix the damage, I would suggest OLEPLEX.

I want to say I really like this product but sometimes I feel like it makes my hair dry. Maybe it's other products I'm using I'm not sure. I do LOVE the smell of this stuff and the rich thick consistency. [product:briogeo-dont-despair-repair!-deep-conditioning-mask-5oz]

This mask definitely helps strengthen hair with out making it feel stiff. Gives the right amount of slip and softness after use. ￼

I'm slowly but surely adding every briogeo product to my collection, and I did fall in love with this one. However, I have really bad eczema recently and with my celiac diagnosis I am trying to take out all products that aren't gluten free. This product has ingredients that I cannot use, and I just wish briogeo would consider reformulating to be a little more inclusive!

I used to love this product but used it again recently, and it doesn't detangle my hair well in the shower. I prefer a mask that detangles, leaving the hair feeling soft and clean and smelling fresh.
BitzyB from Myrtle Beach, SC
I really wanted to love this mask, but unfortunately I just don't.. I followed the directions but my dry hair is still just as dry. I'm definitely returning this.
pierineb from United States
I have used this mask several times. Whenever I want to give my hair extra shine and moisture, I use it. Smells great and leaves my hair hydrated, greatly recommend! Even if the price is a little steep, one bottle can last several months.
Savanna from Fort Myers Florida
I don't know why I was convinced that this product was overhyped- I was even skeptical after application AND while rinsing it out because most products I try that are hyped up never live up to expectations, it also concerned me that it wasn't CG approved. I have 3c/4a low porosity hair and it has been looking so lifeless. I chopped a good part of it off after being so frustrated with it thinking I needed to get rid of damage, only to find out that it didn't fix the problem- in fact it was now even harder to manage because I'd never dealt with my hair being so short. This brought my curls TO LIFE. RAISED THEM FROM THE GRAVE. Chile when I say buy this, you better buy this. It is SO worth it. It is definitely a strengthening mask and lives up to its claims- so don't expect a ton of moisture. This mask put so much elasticity back into my hair after one use that I didn't even have to apply gel, just used two of my favorite leave ins mixed together for a voluminous but defined twa. I'm definitely looking into other products from this brand now.

So nice to use on my thin hair. Gives me a nice scent and ton of moisture that lasts. Would love to receive this again!

I'm a fan of Briogo hair products and general and this is a pretty good mask. I've only had the trial sizes but would be open to trying it again.
Kay from New York
This conditioner is amazing! It transformed my dry, heat damaged curly hair in one use. My hair is so moisturized and so much easier to comb! I will definitely continue to use!
Dev W. from Minnesota
i got this in my feb 2020 allure beauty box, and was super excited to use it. After i rinsed it out i went to sleep and woke up to see that it managed to make my hair both greasy and dry. I didn't have time to rewash my hair, and had to layer on dry shampoo and hope for the best. I may try it again in the hopes that I somehow did it wrong, but still very disappointed.
ernurse from Hillsboro, OR
Absolutely love this hair mask! I have very dry, curly hair and this works wonders when used on a regular basis. It adds moisture and shine to my dull hair. Highly recommend as it is very effective! I would definitely buy again!
elibelly55 from Los Angeles, CA
This is a great product. I love how soft it leaves my hair￼! I use it about twice a month when my hair needs some extra hydration. One thing I will say is I've noticed that sometimes when I use this product my hair tends to get greasy a little faster than it normally would but it's not that big of a deal for me.￼ still love it
Haley from Shelby twp, Mi
I was looking for a deep conditioning mask and i have heard from other people that this mask was good. However, I used it after my hair was fried from bleach at the salon… caused so much more breakage and hair loss. my hair felt MORE dried out and brittle after using this mask on top of my hair being fried off. I talked to one of the stylists at ulta and he recommended the It's a 10 miracle mask when I went back to look for a different product. The smell of this mask is great but for me at least in my case did not help. Also, girls on tik tok are saying not to buy this because they also are experiencing more breakage and fall out after using this mask.
melissa7788 from San Diego, CA
This mask feels really nice on the hair and leaves it feeling soft and smooth. Way better than the drugstore ones!
Dakota from Connecticut
The first few times I used this product I did not like it. Then I kept giving it another chance, and by the 4/5 time I am now in love ! I found if I shampoo twice and then use this mask ( leave it on for atleast 8 minutes ) my hair looks amazing. This is the only mask that does not leave my hair looking oily and there's absolutely no residue after ! This will definitely be my go to from now on my hair feels super moisturized but not weighed down
For context : I have type 1b hair , low porosity and gets oily quick but I have a dry / flaky scalp. This is the only Hair mask that I can put on my roots and get some relief without the heaviness !
Lex from Illinois
This is amazing!! It will make your hair so soft and it helps my hair not frizz out, makes the curls look great
ginak45 from Corning, NY
I got this in a subscription bag or I never would have tried it. I thought a moisture mask was only for dry hair. But it's not! My fine hair loves it. And it smells good. It adds weight and shine and I have purchased it many times…in the bigger tub now.
kendalina from San Rafael, CA
I am in love with this deep conditioning hair mask. I apply it to my hair weekly, primarily focusing on my ends. When I get into the shower, I wet my hair, apply this to my whole head, and let it sit while I shave and wash my body. After rinsing it out I use my shampoo and conditioner like normal. This always leaves my hair looking and feeling it's best.
dorothyd11 from Melrose, MA
I have been color treating my hair for many many years and this particular deep conditioning mask brings my hair back to life with softness and shine like no other. And it smells wonderful. I highly recommend this if you have parched dried locks because it really is an excellent product.￼

Keep my hair very moisturized and minimize my frizz by a lot. I love how soft it keeps my hair too!
