It’s been a year since I became one of the Matrix Ambassadors and to tell you honestly, it is probably one of the most flattering things I’ve accomplished through this blog. To be part of an outstanding line-up of very talented bloggers and DJs from our generation was great but to actually represent the #1 American Salon Brand is beyond A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Thank you, Matrix Family, for taking care of my hair the entire year of 2014. <3
And to show my gratitude for such an incredible blessing, I’m sharing Matrix Biolage products to my lovely readers (supposedly as part of my birthday giveaway but because of the recent typhoon, it got delayed HAHA)
. I can’t wait for you to try these products! 😀 But before that, let me first share with you what I personally think of them. *wink!
“Forget about de-saturated color. These state-of-the-art formulas and color-treated hair care products, inspired by nature, help protect hair, balance moisture and even out the hair’s surface for saturated, shiny, vibrant color that stays truer.”
As most of you already know, I get my hair color done regularly. I’ve been using different hair care products from different brands throughout the year but there’s this one specific brand and variant that I keep coming back to – it’s none other than Matrix Biolage Color Care Therapie, of course.
The Color Care Therapie range from Matrix is inspired by the luxurious Orchid flower that never fades. It is especially formulated to preserve the vibrancy of color-treated hair as it contains Orchid Extract and +UV Complex; not only to maintain but also help enrich the hair color through continuous use.
The shampoo is light and runny. It is able to totally cleanse the scalp without feeling dry. The shampoo alone isn’t enough, though. The hair is a bit rough after so the use of the conditioner is a must. The conditioner does an awesome job in detangling the hair and in locking in moisture! Both the shampoo and conditioner from this line have low pH content to help prolong color vibrancy. Also, their formula is paraben-free formula which makes it perfect for color-treated hair. I love how the hair masque leaves my hair visibly shiny and as soft as Orchid Petals every after use. This’ll be our little secret but instead of using the hair masque once a week, I use it every other day. I’m so addicted to it! Haha. <3
Of all the Biolage variants, I like the scent of the Color Care Therapie the most. The subtle floral scent is light but it actually stays on the hair for a long time. It smells fresh, clean and very very girly. 🙂
I just love how it helps maintain the color depth and tone of my color-treated hair. Compared to other hair care products I’ve tried before, Matrix Biolage Color Care Therapie does a better in keeping my hair color vibrant while still making it shiny, soft and manageable.
“Quench dry, thirsty hair with state-of-the-art formulas inspired by nature that mimic the moisture retaining properties of the Aloe Plant. Hair’s hydration levels are optimized through the absorption and retention of these moisturizing hair care products.”
It is inevitable for my hair to become dry because of all the rebonding and hair coloring. And with dryness comes proneness to breakage and frizziness.. so much so that it actually led to severe hair fall. For which I used Biolage Fiber Strong
, by the way. 🙂 If Fiber Strong is inspired by bamboo, Biolage Ultra-Hydra Source Therapie is inspired by the plant that doesn’t seem to dry up – the aloe vera plant
. It helps optimize moisture balance for healthy looking hair.
The shampoo, formulated with aloe, cupuacu butter and apricot kernel oil, gently cleanses hair leaving it extremely moisturized. Unlike the Biolage Color Care Therapie Shampoo, the shampoo from the Hydra range can stand alone. I still prefer using it with the conditioner, though. The conditioner and the hair masque are specifically designed for very dry hair as they help optimize moisture balance by intensely conditioning the hair to make it look healthy.
This, for me, is the holy grail amongst all the Biolage hair care lines. No matter how healthy or damaged, virgin or chemically-treated your hair is, YOU NEED THIS! I seriously can’t get enough of this. It deeply hydrates and nourishes the hair making it soft, shiny and undeniably more manageable than with the use of other products. I love how it leaves my hair feeling silky, lustrous and healthy-looking even with just one use. This is by far my favorite and I wouldn’t mind shelling out a couple more bucks for this. <3
