    Comments about Matrix Biolage HydraSource Conditioning Balm:

    I loved this! My stylist let me know I was overdosing my hair with protein so I needed to really pack in the moisture to even it out. I went ahead and bought this when it was on sale for under $10 and definitely do not regret it!

      Comments about Matrix Biolage HydraSource Conditioning Balm:

      This hair balm from matrix is incredible!! I started using it years ago when my hair wouldn't grow past my shoulders my stylist recommended it. My hair has been growing again and shiny and silky feeling when I use it. I use it like a mask 1 time a week after conditioner, I leave in for 1 hour wrapped in plastic wrap and up in a towel. When I rinse the product out my hair is so soft and untangled. I love using it so much it smells like cherries and flowers in a good way.

          Comments about Matrix Biolage HydraSource Conditioning Balm:

          I used to absolutely hate this stuff. On a whim, I decided to try it out again along with it's matching Hydrasource Shampoo. I cannot live without this product now! I have hair that is on the finer side with more oily roots and dryer ends. This stuff doesn't worsen my oiliness and keeps the rest of my hair feeling soft, silky, and hydrated and gives me some added shine. I straighten the hair that frames my face and I feel like this helps keep that area healthier than if I were using another conditioner. 100% do recommend, it is a must have.

          I have Very Long- 46", VERY thick hair with a natural wave. Even at the length its at it still has a slight- stubborn wave. Been using this product since I was about 12- just turned 40. I swear by it. Recently tried a different Biolage conditioner & it was a no- go. This is my 4ever ❤. I only wash 2 x's/week & use either a flat iron or beach waver type tool. (Iron gives me about 2 mote inches). Anyway I have a TON of reviews on here & HIGHLY recommend the Biolage conditioning balm to anyone w/hair like mine or stressed hair- chemically treated hair- hair that's very thirsty. (My hair is virgin).The pic is so bad of me but you can kinda see how nice the conditioning balm is. Its also nice because other than a lil bit of the Sugar Shine Spray- I don't use anything to protect against heat tools. The conditioning balm does it. I do use quite a bit & wish Ulta sold the largest size! 40oz I believe. I stopped buying from local store to build points- but do SO miss my huge tub.

              I can't go on a trip without having this product woth me, no other conditioner has been able to do what this one does. I have a LOT of dry, fine hair and this is the only product that actually moisturizers my hair enough so I can brush through it after a wash. MN Winters and dry shampoo don't help my cause but this stuff is an absolute must for me. The fact that you can't (effectively) use a pump to get the product out gives you an idea of just how thick the conditioner is :) I would not recommend for those with oily hair or even somewhat oily, but for dry hair sufferers it's a must!
