The idea of Spring conjures images of sunny days and fresh flowers. Those with finer hair have a darker fate as the days get longer, and tresses become oil laden as the result of humid conditions. Professional hair care companies have developed treatments to remedy oily scalps, but those tend to be as messy as they are inefficient. Matrix, the company behind Biolage, recognized the need for a targeted solution that both volumizes and minimizes oily hair.
Part of the scalpthérapie line of products, the Biolage Oil Control Treatment is used similarly to other root targeted volumizing solutions. Scalpthérapie utilizes the oil absorption properties of mint extract to efficiently eliminate a generous amount of oil. The scent is minty fresh, and your scalp tingles ever so slightly after application.
The Oil Control Treatment performed best when used at the end of the workday to revitalize our tired style. It didn't rejuvenate our second day hair as much as we had hoped, though in fairness our hair is generally oily to the point of no return. It is possible to over use this product, but the problem is quickly remedied with a blow dryer. After testing this product, we realized it's a Spring/Summer necessity for anyone with the slightest hint of fine or oily hair. Make room in those handbags ladies, this product is a keeper.
Biolage has come out with a new volumizing hair care line to help boost limp, flat hair. There is one amazing product in particular for those with super-fine locks called, Volumathérapie® Biolage Bodifying Créme Gel, $13.95.
It's infused with ginger, eucalyptus, rice, milk thistle and bamboo milk to help invigorate lifeless hair and it happens to smell yummy too! Consider this a blow-drying tool; just like you need the right brush, you also need the right product to add volume and bounce.
This gel-to-crème formula which comes packaged in a cool airless pump is heat-activated and is intended to condition and protect your hair from humidity which causes frizz. It won't weigh your hair down and it won't leave a sticky feeling either. What's not simply fab?
