Though the first signs of life are starting to re-emerge in our parks and in the re-opening of garden centres across the country, there is one part of normality that is still out of reach: our hairdressers.

Keeping our greys from getting out of control, our roots from becoming blindingly obvious and the general condition of our hair less frazzled than our trips to the supermarket, has felt like a full-time job at times.

We miss being able to easily book a blow-dry appointment before a night out, those relaxing (if a little rigorous) massages you get at the sink and our hair colour looking fresh and shiny at all times.

And while we haven’t yet found a way to bring salon-quality hair safely to your home, we have found a deep conditioning mask that has been heralded “salon quality” by fans of the product.

The cult-favourite Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask is an intensive weekly treatment is good both immediately and in the long run – it restores essential hydration from the off and enhances hair’s resilience to protect it against future damage.

Whether you have dry, damaged or chemically-treated hair, using this deeply conditioning mask gives stressed-out tresses some much-needed TLC every week – no despairing necessary.

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

It’s formulated with Briogeo’s unique NOVA Complex, which contains an optimal blend of transformative nutrients from B-vitamins, rosehip and argan oils, algae and biotin to replenish damaged hair and leave it shiny, glossy and healthy-looking.

Plus, it’s safe for colour or chemically-treated hair and many who use it report “impressive” results.

The Cult Beauty website recommends leaving the product in your hair for between five to 10 minutes, but you just need to glance at the reviews to find that 30 minutes is actually the optimal time for the mask to really penetrate your hair.

One shiny-haired shopper commented: “I was absolutely blown away by how soft and silky this left my hair, I wasn’t expecting it to be THIS good!”

While another added: “The! Best! Conditioner! Ever! I have curly, frizzy, silky hair, with exceptionally thin strands which are not much improved with my regular bleaching.

“About second or third time I used this mask I could see a definite improvement. My curls remained nicely formed for much longer, my dried-out bleached ends now look as if they've never been chemically treated....couldn't recommend more.”

Could it be... are bad hair days almost behind us?
