Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask Review

Briogeo says "this deep conditioning hair mask delivers an optimal blend of transformative hair nutrients such as B vitamins, rosehip and argan oils, collagen, and silk to restore and replenish damaged hair to a shiny, healthy state. Comprised of 95% naturally derived ingredients, hair is left smooth, hydrated, and lustrous".  This hair mask contains 5.25 fl oz (155ml) and sells for $26 at Sephora, Urban Outfitters, or Birchbox Shop. I received a 1 fl oz (30ml) sample in a past Ipsy Bag. Briogeo does not test on animals. This conditioning mask was made in America.

Briogeo's Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask comes in a round plastic tub. The Briogeo logo and product name are printed on the front of the jar, a product description, directions, and an ingredient list are offered on the back. I don't really like my hair masks to be in jars, its too easy to get water in tub style packing, watering down the product and ruining it. I want pretty much everything in a squeeze tube, hair masks included. Packaging is recyclable.

The Don't Despair, Repair! Mask is surprisingly lovely. This hair mask has a tick, rich consistency that spreads through wet hair easily. I apply about a half dollar sized dollop through the length of my hair and leave it in for 8-10 minutes, about twice as long as what Briogeo recommends. Don't Despair, Repair! rinses easily and the results are great! This nutrient rich deep conditioner leaves my hair very silky, soft, and shiny. Briogeo's mask is great for in-shower detangling as well. The weightless moisture provided by Don't Despair, Repair! last about two days. This hair mask has a soft rose scent that does not seem to linger in the hair. 

I can't believe I waited a year to try Briogeo's Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask! I'm so glad I finally gave this hair mask a shot - its really nice! This mask is fairly hydrating and will suit most hair types, though severely dry hair will need more moisture than what Don't Despair, Repair! can provide. On top of being quite moisturizing, this mask will keep hair silky and tangle free. If you want an effective, mid range hair mask, pick up Briogeo's Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask next time you're at Sephora!

  1. I had some of this that I used last summer and I really liked it. Well enough to buy it. I just haven't yet, since I already have a lot of other stuff on hand to use up before I buy anything more.

    1. Glad you like it! And I totally feel you, wanting to repurchase but needing to destash is the story of my life lol.

  2. Why does hair need to hide behind a mask =o
