Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Mask Review

Briogeo Don't Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Hair Mask

I’m back with a review of a super viral hair mask from the brand Briogeo. This is something that every hair type can use; at least the brand seems to convey that. From curly to very curly hair to straight fine hair, influencers are raving about this hair mask even claiming it to be one of their best findings. I recently started to take care of my hair after being diagnosed with PCOS so I was looking for a hair mask that will give my fine but dull hair that extra boost of hydration but doesn’t feel weighed down or flat. So recently I managed to buy a deluxe-sized mini version of the Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Mask and used it 5 times to see if it was worth the money or not. If you want to know, what do I have to say as well? Then keep on reading.

Product Description:

Briogeo Hair Mask Ingredients & How to use

Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair Conditioning Mask Review

Packaging: The mini Briogeo Hair Mask comes in a basic plastic tube that you squeeze to get the product out. The deluxe-sized tube has enough product for 4 to 5 washes, but it also depends on your hair volume and length. The full-sized product is packed in a big jar that can take up much space in your vanity. But at least you are having a bang for your buck.

Texture: The hair mask is white and thick, but it’s not difficult to spread. It detangled my fine wavy hair within seconds and it has that sort of creaminess to it. One doesn’t need a lot of product and it isn’t watery so you can do your chores after putting it on.

Fragrance: It has Briogeo’s signature chemical but a sweet scent. It doesn’t feel overpowering but can give a headache to someone who is sensitive to smells.

My Experience:

The Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair Hair Mask is the product I use when I am going for an occasion and want to flaunt my hair with shine and gorgeousness. It gives me enough hydration to make it look natural. I like this feature a lot because many hydration-heavy formulas tend to give my hair a flat and weighed-down look.

This hair mask has a curly girl-friendly formula but for very dry and chemically treated hair this mask may or may not do enough repairing. It gave my hair a dramatically wavy texture which I didn’t know I had. The definition of the curls was truly gorgeous.

The one problem that many have reported is that water can easily get into the jar and after that, the formula doesn’t work like before.

The hair mask has rosehip and algae extracts which will give you protection from heat and free radical damage. If you don’t have the money for the big jar right now then use one of the minis to try. I think it will be more economical and more brands should start doing so so that we can try it out before investing in the full size.

Overall, it’s a splurge-worthy hair mask that gives your hair nourishment and luster looking finish.


The hair looks very shiny and saloon-like.
Gives enough moisture and protein as well to the hair.
Good for Curly hair as well.
The hair does not look weighed down if one has fine hair.


  1. Very expensive for a hair mask.
  2. Doesn’t give enough hydration for very dry and dull hair.
  3. The packaging can be bulky when you are traveling.

Rating: 4/5
