“It’s not about being perfect! And we don’t know any vegans who walk around saying that they are, or that they cause zero harm. Veganism doesn’t mean causing ZERO harm (that would be delusional)... but it definitely means causing a lot less of it!! And causing LESS harm than before (before being vegan) is definitely worth celebrating and continuing to advocate for.

Don’t let the vegan haters get you down. Usually the people pointing their fingers and trying to find a flaw in veganism are the ones who simply don’t understand it or don’t know what it takes to stand for something.” (Words by @vegan_boss, 📸 via @unmeatfuture)

Doe Hair Mask Review – Vegan Bora Bora Nourishing Hair Mask

This post may contain affiliate links.


I received the Doe hair mask in last month’s LaRitzy cruelty-free and vegan beauty box. I fell in love with the baby pink packaging so much that I didn’t even want to open it! But my curiosity took over as I wanted to see what was inside!

Doe Hair Mask

What you need to know about Doe Hair Masks:

  • Price: $17
  • Size: 100ml
  • Canadian-based company!
  • Comes in two options; Bora Bora and Provence
  • Both hair masks are made with 100% vegan and natural ingredients

Product Claims: “Treat your best accessory right! Hair needs moisture just like your skin. Take a mini escape with this Bora Bora Hair Pact, formulated to moisturize even the driest hair. Composed of a blend of natural and certified organic ingredients, this nourishing mask effectively targets dullness, dryness, and frizz for an overall improvement in the appearance and feeling of your hair.”

Ingredients: Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Simmondsia Cinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Vitamin E, Psidium Guajava (Guava) Seed Oil, Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Oil

How to Use it?

Apply thoroughly on dry hair, focusing on the ends and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. Rinse and shampoo hair as usual.

Doe Hair Mask Review – Bora Bora

I got the Doe hair mask in Bora Bora and the consistency of the product coming out of the tube is pretty humorous. It’s a fairly thick formula so it comes out looking like a crayon. Once I get a decent amount out, I will rub the product in between the palm of my hands to sort of melt it and break down the big clumps. Application is very smooth but make sure you get the right amount out the first time otherwise going for more while both hands are covered with the product will make a mess of things! It also smells like coconut and lime but the smell doesn’t linger or transfer.


I saw a significant difference in my hair after just one use, especially for my color treated ends that always needs a little TLC! My hair looked smoother, moisturized, and conditioned! I am incredibly impressed with this nourishing hair mask from Doe. It’s got all the right ingredients that I am familiar and comfortable with putting on my hair; organic coconut oil, castor oil, jojoba oil, avocado oil! I don’t naturally have frizzy hair so I can’t really comment on whether this helps with frizz or not.

Final Thoughts on Doe Hair Mask

I love it! I would definitely get it again and would try the Provence option as well! I’ve been struggling with managing my ends after bleaching them last summer for an ombre look and my hair has been paying for it since so I’m totally looking forward to using this Doe hair mask to help with restoring my hair back!

The hair mask is $17 and it says you can get 4-5 uses out of it for shoulder length hair. I don’t find that you need nearly as much because the formula is pretty thick. So say that you use it 5 times, that will cost you about $3.50 for each application which is pretty steep but I’d like to justify the value with the natural ingredients and how great it works, I personally think it’s worth it!

    Just a personal comment: the font they use for the brand bears a frightening resemblance to the infamous Dove =S

      WHOAAA.. I never even noticed that, it really does!! Great catch! =)

      Doe is a small local brand based in my hometown so I know they don’t have any affiliations with Dove (thank goodness!)
