When summer rolls around, I like to give my hair a break from the heat and maintenance of winter and spring hair looks. Instead, I tend to let my hair air dry and I love putting it into a braid while it’s still wet so that it will dry into effortless, beachy waves.
But in order for this look to work without being overly frizzy or dry, I like to use deep conditioners and hair masks to nourish my hair and give the ends of my hair a boost. This month I decided to try out the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair Deep Conditioning Mask since it is now stocked in Sephora.
This in-shower mask is meant to be used once a week after your shampoo, and left on for 5-10 minutes. I like to pop this on before I exfoliate and shave so that it has time to settle into my hair. I am a little disappointed that I only had two uses out of the 1 oz pot, which is $9! If you’re thinking of buying this, definitely go for the 8 oz pot which is $36 to get more bang for your buck.
Formulated with Briogeo’s unique NOVA Complex, this mask delivers an optimal blend of transformative nutrients from B-vitamins, rosehip and argan oils, algae, and biotin to replenish damaged hair to a shiny, healthy-looking, and lustrous state.
The scent of this product is nice, and I found that it applied and washed out of my hair easily which is a must so that I’m not damaging my hair even further. The first time I used this I let my hair air dry, and didn’t really notice much difference. The second time I blow-dried my hair, and noticed a difference in the softness and shine in my hair. It did really help tame the frizz for a softer, shinier look.
I am happy with this product, but it’s a bit over the budget I would want to spend without seeing remarkable results. I will not be repurchasing this product, but am interested in trying more products from the line. I like that this brand uses natural ingredients, which is something I’m trying more of in my day-to-day products.
