Since my last haircut a few months ago, my ‘do has had its share of WTF!?! moments (hello, bangs gone wild).
I don’t mind the occasional bad hair day, but fearing the start of an unwelcome trend I recently turned to a new shampoo, conditioner and hair masque from Matrix Biolage.
I started using ‘em about two weeks ago on my color-treated, naturally dry hair, but because I see my locks in the mirror all the time, I wasn’t sure the products were helping until a few of you gals asked what’s been up with my hair (hopefully in a good way, ha!).
Time to share the Biolage love.
The four new Delicate Care products ($18-20 each, released last November) gently clean, condition and protect colored, processed and/or damaged hair, and for the most part they do it without the use of sulfates or silicones (yay!).
Biolage added fair trade acai berry and conditioning Moroccan argan oil to the line, which the company says help smooth hair texture and retain color.
I’d have to agree. Either the acai and argan oil are working, or something else in the products is.
On top of how well they work, I LOVE the scent. It’s a crisp, clean combination of jasmine flowers and orange wedges that lingers without being too in yo’ face.
Biolage Delicate Care
- Delicate Care Shampoo ($18): The sulfate-free formula cleans hair gently, and I like that my scalp doesn’t get all dry and flaky. NOTE: This one DOES contain silicones (ingredients that some ladies feel can weigh hair down or cause breakouts).
- Delicate Care Conditioner ($19): It detangles, softens and doesn’t weigh my hair down, leaving it with lots of body and bounce; plus, it’s silicone-, paraben- and mineral-oil free.
- Delicate Care Masque ($20): A thick, moisturizing masque to add moisture, shine and extend color vibrancy. It leaves my hair manageable and soft without feeling coated, and like the conditioner it’s made sans silicones, parabens and mineral oil.
- Delicate Care Organic Certified Oil ($19): I haven’t tried this one yet… but I sooo want to.
My mane and I give bigs ups to Delicate Care, but I’d love these *that much more* if Biolage could sell them at drugstore prices, le sigh…
If you don’t mind the cost and need a little help with colored, dry or just plain petulant hair, they might be worth a try. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A
After the rain
After yesterday’s epic rainstorm, Tabs and I were overjoyed to see blue skies this morning. We went for a walk around the circle before he settled down for a bite to eat at the salad bar, aka the patch of grass across the street from the garage.
It was nice to feel the sun on my skin… even if it only lasted a moment. Yup, it’s raining again!
How’s your day been?
