It’s not often you come across hair that doesn’t require a little bit of extra TLC. Colour processes and heated styling tools in particular create a need for an ultra caring hair care range that treats over processed hair.
While not a natural range for the purists, Matrix Biolage is a brand that combines nature and science to create gentle, high-performance formulas while working to minimise its environmental impact.
The new Biolage Advanced range is a unique category specifically for weak, fragile and over-processed hair. The range comprises two complete hair care collections – Biolage Advanced Fiberstrong and Biolage Advanced Keratindose.
Biolage Advanced Fiberstrong for weak and fragile hair is formulated with Intra-Cylane and bamboo to condition and strengthen the hair cuticle and add resiliency to weakened hair. The formula helps to fill gaps in the hair cuticle caused by brushing, thermal styling tools, UV exposure and daily stress. ‘Weak and fragile’ is how I’d best describe my hair, so I gave this range a trial. I was surprised that when washing my hair, the shampoo left my hair feeling a tad dry, but as soon as I put the conditioner on it felt like it had been transformed to silky smooth and tangle free. The Leave-In Fortifying Cream is the hero product for me. It’s a light, creamy lotion texture, rub half a pump through the palms then spread through the mid lengths to ends, prior to blow drying. It leaves the hair shiny, soft and with a smoother blow dry finish.
The Fiberstrong collection comprises Shampoo, Conditioner and Fortifying Cream and his also paraben-free.
For hair that is over-processed by colour, bleach, straightening and other chemical services, look for Biolage Advanced Keratindose. The collection contains Pro-Keratin to help renew dry, damaged hair adding softness and movement.
The Biolage Advanced Keratindose collection comprises sulphate and paraben-free Shampoo, Conditioner and Renewal Spray to leave hair feeling soft and supple while maintaining optimal levels of moisture and protein balance.
The ranges are also accompanied by two in-salon professional treatments to keep an eye out for when you’re next in the stylist’s seat.
The Matrix Biolage Advanced collections will be available nationwide from Matrix salons from May 2013. Contact 0800 657 666 for stockists.
