      This conditioner has been my go to for longer than I can remember. I'm a Caucasian women with very, very curly hair. I use it daily on freshly washed or in between washes to give me soft and manageable curls. It never gets too built up.

        Was looking for a great working conditioner as my hair is quite damaged due to lots of bleaching, this is not the conditioner to make my hair feel softer. Will still be on the search unfortunately.

        Comments about Matrix Biolage HydraSource Conditioning Balm:

        I have frizzy curly hair that I wear both curly and straight. The texture of this product is horrible. It does not come out and makes your hair feeling heavy and dirty. I had to wash it out. Redkin frizz conditioner is what I returned this for. It works like magic.

            Comments about Matrix Biolage HydraSource Conditioning Balm:

            I had colored my hair for the first time & I had been using the Biolage conditioner for colored hair & felt that it made my hair feel dry & difficult to detangle & brush through after showering. I've always liked Biolage so when I saw this I decided to give it a try & so far it's worked great. My hair is easy to brush through and no longer feels dry after washing.

                  A:

                  Biolage HydraSource Conditioning Balm is perfect for normal/dry damaged hair that is lacking softness and shine. Ultra HydraSource Conditioner is recommended for extremely dry damaged thick course hair.

                  The Matrix Biolage HydraSource Conditioning Balm is a great alternative, it will condition, detangle, add softness and lock in the moisture to the hair.

                  Yes, the Matrix Biolage HydraSource Conditioning Balm is going to condition, detangle and add softness to the hair. This product will also seal the cuticle down to lock in the moisture that is being added.

                  Hydrasource Conditioner and Conditioning Balm are one and the same. The large bottle label HydraSource Conditioner is the same as the smaller tube labelled Conditioning Balm.

                  It was originally Conditioning Balm and then changed to Conditioner (which is different from the Ultra HydraSource Conditioner) We apologize for the confusion.
