Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask Review-
Hello lovely ladies!
I am sure all of you are familiar with this very cult ride-or-die hair mask of so many beauty influencers & vloggers throughout the world right? It is so expensive but I have seen & heard each & everybody waxing lyrical about it since forever & when I found Briogeo available easily here in the UK, I just had to pick it up last year. I have just finished using up my tub & it just didn’t work for me :-/ Read on to know more.

Getting to work in mere minutes, Briogeo’s Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask restores essential hydration and natural vibrancy to dry, brittle, over-processed and lacklustre locks.

My take on the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask-
The mask comes in a lovely white sturdy plastic tub with a screw-on lid & plastic protector. The huge 946 ml comes in a pump bottle which I think is a way better idea instead of having to dip your fingers in but anyway -_-. I would not travel with the big 236 ml tub either so never mind.
The mask is creamy white in color,medium thick & creamy in texture & I apply a big dollop on my freshly washed towel dried hair while I go about doing other stuff like exfoliating, shaving etc etc. Surprisingly, it rinses away quite easily in spite of having such a creamy texture & hair feels nice & soft while rinsing it out.
After drying, my hair feels nourished & soft but nothing exceptional really. I could not detect any significant frizz reduction or mirror-like shine to my hair- in short, the masque is good for deep conditioning but then, any good conditioner does the same job!
I got so frustrated at the lack of miracles that I tried this mask in every way possible. I used it in place of my conditioner, it worked as a normal conditioner. I used it an hour before shampooing, it worked just like any other 2-3 GBP hair mask I use for that purpose -_-.
The mask neither aggravated not solved any of my hair issues. It did not weigh down my fine hair or cause excess hair fall.
The mask has a very subtle floral fragrance which is hardly discernible & I don’t care much for it.
Pros of the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask:
1> Nice & sturdy lovely white tub 🙂
2> Creamy & thick, good for hydrating hair without residue.
3> Did not weigh my fine hair down.
4> Devoid of harmful parabens & silicones.
5> Easy to wash off.
Cons of the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask:
Performed no miracles on my thin, dry, frizzy hair.
Unfit for travelling.
My Rating: 3/5!
Do I recommend the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask?
Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask disappointed me so much to say the least 🙁 I had heard so much for so long I blindly bought it at full price thinking it would work amazingly well but it did nothing more than any average, drugstore hair mask :-/ It did not tame my frizz or make my hair amazingly smooth or better in condition or anything! I would rather buy my Garnier hair food masks anyday over this -_- Not recommended!
