Amazing deep conditioner that saved my hair. I do struggle with breakage and heat damage. I have curly hair and after using this it gave my curls life again, reduced frizz, and made it very soft. I usually can’t run my fingers through my hair but after using this for a few weeks my hair had movement, volume, and shine. I would recommend to anyone who struggles with any of those things. It may be a little pricy but a little goes a long way, and you only need to use it about once a week. Mine lasted about two and a half months which isn’t bad. Could have lasted longer but I used it twice a week because my hair was so damaged from box dyes.

I love this product to death! It is just so freaking amazing and it does everything is promising. You will immediately notice the difference on your hair. It will be so silky and smooth! I got my first one on a boxycharm, but it was just a travel size;however, since I fell in love with it i decided to purchase the full size one. I always recommend this product, I do think it is so really worth it... I was looking up online and you can get the full size product at sephora and the briogeo website, or retails for $36;however, I also noticed that you can get the travel size at Walmart for only $9.99.It is just amazing, you should give it a try!

This mask has changed my life and I need to stock up! I have curly hair and I get highlightes and my hair is naturally on the more dry side. This gives my curls life and it makes my hair super hydrated and soft without weighing down my curls. It has a beautiful scent and it lasts a good amount of time. I would say it lasted me a little over a month before repurchasing but that's because my hair is dry and I love deep conditioning treatments! If you have oily hair then you could make this last even longer! If you have dry damaged hair then this is a mask that won't disappoint!

I’m so upset that I love this so much, because now I have to keep buying it! It’s SO hydrating, and smoothing for the hair, and it smells wonderful. Briogeo is also free of harsh, unnatural ingredients! The only downside is that it’s hella expensive; however, if you need hydration in your hair or just want a treat, I HIGHLY recommend this.

Total Game Changer!
I received one sample of this and I was immediately hooked. I literally went the next day and bought a bigger size of it. I had color treated my hair recently for the first time and it ruined my hair - my thick hair went from healthy and strong to super dry like straw and I was dealing with so much breakage. I was previously using Olaplex hair perfector number 3 on the recommendation from my hair dresser, but didn't really notice much a result after weeks of using it, so I decided to give this a go. In just one use it was a total game changer. I never thought my hair would be so soft and hydrated after all the processing I put it through but this product showed me it was possible! It doesn't leave a oily residue after using which I've had issues in the past with other products and best of all its all natural - I mean come on how can you not try it? As much chemicals we put in our hair dye and style it, why put in more? Go back to nature! I've seen that some reviewers mention a bad smell but I think it's anything but - the smell is very light and in my opinion smells lovely. I will definitely keep this in my beauty arsenal and recommend it highly to anyone with dry processed hair that's looking for a something bring it their hair back to life! I will definitely give their other products try since this has worked so well for me. Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask you have definitely made me a believer.

The best hair mask on the market. Everyone needs to try this! No crappy ingredients or unnecessary fillers. It smells amazing and the best part makes my hair feel amazing, super soft, easy to brush. I use it on my daughter’s hair as well. The jar also lasts a long time since you only need to use this once/twice a week

This product has done wonders for my hair! I used to hate wearing my hair natural (I have curly hair) as it would always get frizzy throughout the day, but this has helped restore moisture in my hair. Ever since using this I've been able to go 3 days before my natural hair is unmanageable. It is expensive. However, if you don't go over board when applying it, it will last quiet awhile.

Everyone raves about this mask, but I found that it weighed my hair down so much. It didn’t make my hair feel any cleaner, rather much dirtier after a days wash, making me feel like I needed to clean it more frequently. It is expensive as well, so I won’t be repurchasing. I have medium length, color-treated, tangle-prone hair, for reference.

A intense moisturizing conditioner! After I used it my hair was soo silky soft and not a touch of tangles. At first I thought it was going to be too heavy of a conditioner but not at all! Something I would certainly recommend for someone who is looking for moisture. It has a nice light scent and is something I plan to continue to use.

I love this hair mask! It's a deep conditioning treatment that my hair just soaks up and loves. It's easy to use and rinses cleanly without leaving a heavy residue behind. I will continue to use this. I think next time I will buy it in the squeeze tube and not the tub. I don't like having to dip my hands repeatedly into a tub.
