TGIN Miracle RepaiRx Deep Hydrating Hair Mask Review

It’s no secret that one of my current favorite hair brands is TGIN. I use several other hair products from the brand

So it makes sense that I would give the Miracle RepaiRx Deep Hydrating Hair Mask a try. Especially when I found out that it’s formulated for high-porosity hair which is what my hair leans toward.

Plus, this deep conditioner doesn’t have any strong proteins like keratin in it. The hair mask has biotin as a strengthening ingredient. Biotin is a protein but part of the b-vitamin family. I did some online research and found this article from Real Simple along with a few others and it doesn’t look like biotin is absorbed into the hair strands as biotin is better taken orally.

Now, you don’t want to get the Miracle RepaiRx Deep Hydrating Hair Mask confused with the Miracle RepaiRx CPR Protein Treatment. If you have, don’t feel bad as you’re not alone and it’s easy to do since the containers look exactly the same. The CPR Protein Treatment has a hydrolyzed protein in it so if you’re trying to stay away from proteins make sure you check the name of the product when buying in the store.

The TGIN Miracle RepaiRx Deep Hydrating Hair Mask claims it’s formulated to restore “life to dry, damaged, or color-treated hair” It helps to smooth and soften the hair, improve shine and manageability, lock in moisture, repair damage, and help reduce shedding and breakage.

Two key ingredients are called out on the top of the container. The first ingredient called out is black castor oil which is supposed to help moisturize, strengthen, and increase blood flow to the scalp to rapidly increase hair growth. I’m not sure how it helps to increase blood flow to the scalp in this instance when deep conditioners aren’t typically made to be applied to the scalp and it doesn’t talk about massaging the product onto the scalp.

The second ingredient called out is biotin which is supposed to help restore health to damaged hair, improve hair strength, and support length retention. As I mentioned above there doesn’t seem to be much evidence that biotin provides many benefits from a topical standpoint.

The ingredient list of the Miracle RepaiRx Hair Mask is very attractive as there are a lot of natural-sounding ingredients like olive oil, agave extract, and ginger root. Plus, all of the silicones and alcohols are included towards the bottom of the ingredient list (ingredient list from the TGIN website below as of the publishing of this review). 

water, raw black honey, ricinus communis (castor seed oil), biotin, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, agave americana leaf (agave) extract, carica papaya fruit (papaya) extract, ginger root (ginger) extract, gardenia tahitensis (monoi) flower extract, euterpe oleracea (acai) fruit extract, sclerocarya birrea (marula) seed oil, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, stearyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, stearamidopropyl dimethylamine, glycerin, fragrance, cyclopentasiloxane, dimethicone

Here’s what I like about the hair mask
  • It’s kind of thick and has a nice creamy consistency which my hair likes
  • It sinks into my hair strands and really gives them some great hydration
  • It doesn’t have an odd smell
  • A little goes a long way

I can buy it from multiple places so it’s easy to stock up on it - Ulta, Walmart, Target, AmazonSally Beauty, and the TGIN site.

Here's what I don’t like about the mask
  • While the consistency is thick it’s also slippery so it’s hard sometimes to not drop any and waste it (believe me I’ve dropped quite a bit when applying it to my hair and believe me I scooped it up if it dropped in the shower or on the bathroom counter)
  • It’s almost $20 in the US which feels like a lot of money for what I would call a drugstore hair mask

While there are a few things noted above I don’t like they aren’t enough to sway me from discontinuing this hair mask. Even the cost, as it does go on sale often for anywhere up to 50% off. The TGIN Miracle RepaiRx Deep Hydrating Hair Mask makes my hair look and feel great and is a key product in helping my hair recover from protein overload. It’s currently a staple in my relaxed hair regimen and I see it being that way for a while.
