When it comes to frizz-fighting products, serums, oils, and sprays tend to be the first tools we pull out of our bag of hair-care tricks. We've lauded the amazing results of Living Proof No Frizz Humidity Shield—it saved one editor's beach-waved locks during a sudden squall last wedding season—and love Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil for soft, frizz-fighting hold that doesn't quit. While we've got our finishing products locked down, until recently we were still searching for a product that stops frizz at the source. This hair mask from Briogeo does just that—working to tame frizz before you even step foot out of the shower.

Don't Despair, Repair! is a deep conditioning mask that's meant to be used once a week to hydrate, restore, strengthen, and prevent future damage to your tresses. We're calling this the newest addition to our Sunday night beauty routine.

After shampooing your hair, slather on Don't Despair, Repair! all over, from root to ends. Leave it on for about 10 minutes before rinsing. If you're in need of a major dose of hydration, keep it on for about twenty minutes. Ideally, those twenty minutes would be spent sitting under the direct head of a salon-style dryer, but we understand they don't come standard in most master baths.

If you've been searching for the best frizz-preventer give this deep conditioning mask a try. It's all about stopping frizz before it starts, unlike the more abundant taming varieties that work their magic after frizz has already set in. We have a feeling it will be the not-so-little secret to your smoother, stronger strands in no time.
