Very dry, damaged hair needs extra moisture and conditioning to prevent hair breakage, frizz and flyaways. Inspired by the refreshing aloe plant that never seems to dry, Biolage Ultra Hydra source Shampoo is a professional hair treatment and hair protectant that optimizes moisture balance for healthy looking natural and color treated hair.
  • Intense moisturizing, anti-frizz shampoo gently cleanses hair leaving it extremely moisturized, soft and shiny
  • Formulated with aloe, cupuacu butter and apricot kernel oil for volumizing control
  • Paraben-free formula is also suitable for color treated and natural hair
Quench dry, thirsty hair with state-of-the-art professional products 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 moisture.
Apply to wet hair and lather with a massaging motion. Rinse thoroughly. In case of contact with eyes, rinse them immediately. Matrix recommends that you pair Ultra Hydrasource Conditioner with Ultra Hydrasource Shampoo for extra moisture and hydration.

    Comments about Matrix Biolage Ultra Hydrasource Shampoo:

    I had been using products for strength because I wanted to grow long hair and couldn't figure out why all my ends just explode. My stylist thought I was using product with too much protein and referred me to hydrasource. My hair is smooth and ends are SO much better.

          Biolage has totally ruined my hair, no longer the product it was in the past, my hair is now dry and breaking off, their deep conditioners just apply layers of silicone as do all their products now. I have used Biolage for 20 years and this will be my last purchase I bought Nexxus to try after trying Pureology, Redken, Tigi ,Paul Mitchell and Sebastian . The Nexxus is the only product that is slowly bring my hair back to life Products get more expensive and the quality has gone way down.

                        I bought this square bottle of Biolage at Ulta and it is NOT the same as the larger, original bottle of hydra source. I thought I was losing my mind and then I compared the shampoo and it is completely different. I do not like the square bottle-it is not nearly as good as the original Biolage.

I use the shampoo and conditioner both and my hair looks and feels so much healthier. I've only been using a week so I don't know how well it is for long term use.

                                  Matrix Biolage Ultra Hydrasource Shampoo is for very dry hair needing extra moisture; however, for moderate damage you may want to try Keratindose Shampoo as it provides targeted reinforcement for over-processed, weak or fragile hair.

                                I used to be bright blonde but I've recently been dyeing my hair back to my natural dark blonde/light brown color. I have a liter of this shampoo and I love it, but I'm worried it will wash out or fade the lowlights I've been getting. Can I use this shampoo without my color fading? Or do I really need to get a sulfate free shampoo?

                                Is this good for color treated hair? I need something that will keep my dry scalp moisturized but will also protect my color.

                                  Yes! Biolage Ultra Hydrasource Shampoo helps optimize moisture balance for healthy looking hair. The formula is inspired by the aloe plant. It mimics the moisture-retaining properties. Hair's hydration levels are optimized through the absorption and retention of moisture. It is an excellent choice for color treated hair.

                                I am needing a sulfate-free shampoo/conditioner that all helps protect against color fading and is moisturizing. My hair is fine and has quite a bit of damage. Any suggestions? Thanks!

                                  For a sulfate free shampoo that will help with color treated damaged hair, Biolage Keratindose Shampoo for Overprocessed Hair would be suggested.

                                  We hope you find this suggestion helpful.

                                  Matrix Biolage Ultra Hydrasource product range is for extremely dry hair. It is typically ideal for those with coarse hair or very damaged medium hair lacking moisture. HydraSource product range is typically ideal for those with fine-to-medium dry hair lacking moisture.
