AMW Reviews: Biolage Colorcare Therapie Shampoo and Conditioner

Hi AMW Friends!
It's a hair product day today!  I know I haven't really talked much about hair products as I find them to take a bit of time and several uses before I can really say if it's good or not!  But I do get a lot of email queries on what's the best shampoo and conditioner and to be honest, I always answer them: "It really depends on your hair situation."  

I have to admit, there's NO brand out there that could really make my hair look like a hair shampoo commercial unless if I go through Rebond service or Permanent Blow Dry services.  I can improve the "feel" or look of my hair but it takes time and a whole lot of effort!  

So far, my best advice is to deep condition your hair at least once a week with hair treatment of choice plus use clarifying shampoos at least once or twice a week depending on how much hair products you  use in a day! 

Today, I will be sharing one of my favorite shampoo and conditioner brand, Biolage by Matrix.  I have used Biolage more than a decade ago when this brand isn't even available in the local market!  My best friend, who lives in Canada then, went for a Rebond Treatment (which was really new and very expensive during that time) was advised to use Biolage Products by her Hairstylist and she loved the results!  Since my best friend and I have almost the same hair condition, she purchased me a set and I ended loving them too! 

Fast forward to today, I may have used a lot of shampoo and conditioner brands but Biolage will always have a special place in my heart!  So when I was invited to be one of Matrix Ambassador for the year 2014, I immediately said YES!  And what's even more exciting?  I got to take home these....
 
Ahh, brings back good 'ol memories!  I used to really scrimp on using these!

Pros
  • Smells WONDERFUL.  One of the best smelling shampoo and conditioner in my humble opinion.
  • No Paraben.
  • Hair feels really soft and tangle-free after every wash.  Mind you, my hair hasn't been rebonded for more than a year now.
  • Hair color looks more vibrant.
  • Hair is moisturized after every wash (with the use of conditioner).
  • Does not weigh down my hair.
  • No dandruff !  (A huge YAY for me!)
Cons
  • Price.  This brand is pricier than regular shampoos and conditioners.
Neutral
  • Only available in leading salons and you can't purchase them in groceries or supermarkets.
Overall
Biolage ColorCare Therapie Shampoo and Conditioner indeed care for your color-treated hair.  My hair color did not fade and both products leave my hair soft and easy to comb after every hair wash.  It is an added bonus that Biolage smells WONDERFUL! 

Tips
  • To save up on purchasing a product and finding out it doesn't work, go to a salon who uses Matrix products and avail their hair services and request for Biolage products so you can try them!  
  • It helps to use both shampoo and conditioner from the same brand.  
  • Purchase other variants if you do not color your hair!  
Will I repurchase?
YES!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Girls who love to color their hair!  Using a color care shampoo and conditioner makes a HUGE difference as they don't make your hair color fade faster, which at the end of the day, saves you more money!

Where to purchase and how much?
At leading salons nationwide.  Ask if they have Biolage products or you can see it on display.
