Biolage Haircare #LiveRAW

Tuesday, July 04, 2017
As I mentioned in a previous post, I'm trying to move over to more natural haircare as I don't want to carry on using products that contains lots of ingredients that might not be necessarily good for your hair. Biolage have recently released their R.A.W range which features a plant based formula and 97% of the ingredients are from natural sources. The products don't contain silicones, sulphates or artificial colourants.

I was very kindly sent a lovely press pack a few weeks ago with some of the Biolage RAW Nourish range which is designed for dry, dull hair to leave it glossy, nourished and feeling stronger. I love the packaging for this range, the shampoo and conditioner bottles look like juice or smoothie bottles.

*Biolage RAW Nourish Shampoo (£18.29, 325ml)
There are numerous ranges and you can actually take a quiz where you can find out which range would be most suitable for your hair. The nourish range contains honey and quinoa husk and it smells amazing! To me, the shampoo has a sweet and clean scent that's a little salon like.

Even though the shampoo doesn't contain sulphates or silicones, it lathers well which is fantastic as I have tried some shampoos that don't contain silicones/sulphates that don't lather at all. The shampoo leaves my hair clean and smooth without feeling like it's stripping my hair. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.
*Biolage RAW Nourish Conditioner (£18.29, 325ml)
Conditioners are alway my favourite products out of a range as they tend to be the products that make the most impact and difference to my hair. The conditioner smells different to the shampoo, it's creamy and musky scented which I really like but I thought the whole range would smell the same but it doesn't.

The conditioner leaves my dry, very tangled and dull hair so much more manageable! My hair has been incredibly tangled recently but this conditioner and the masks have been helping. This conditioner is well worth checking it as it's one of the few conditioners that leave my hair so smooth, soft and shiny instantly! Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.

*Biolage Re-Bodify Clay Mask (£28.59, 400ml)
Now onto the masks which I have been using a lot more recently because I love these masks but also because I have bleached ends so I need to look after my hair much more now as bleach definitely dries out and damages the hair. This hair mask is designed for flat, fine hair and as with the shampoo/conditioner, it doesn't contain parabens or silicones.

I don't have fine hair, mine is very thick especially after using a treatment product recently but I do have flat hair so I was excited to try this mask. I like the scent, it contains ginger and clay; it does have a powdery clay scent. Both masks are so thick but they're still easy to apply.

I always apply hair masks to dry hair as I find that they are more effective as I can leave them on for much longer than I can when I use the masks in the shower. I find this mask does make my hair a little more voluminous but not as much as I'd hoped but I think it's just because my hair is so long and thick rather than a fault with the product. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.
*Biolage RAW Re-Hydrate Clay Mask (£28.59, 400ml)
Last but not least is my second favourite product, after the gorgeous conditioner as it is such an effective hair mask and one that I've been using constantly. The mask is designed for dry, dull hair and it contains shea butter and moroccan lava clay.

The mask has a subtle scent (although that might just be because I'm still full of an awful cold) and it is very thick so it's great to use on dry hair as it will stay put. I usually leave masks on my hair for an hour or so before I have a shower and this one has been the mask that I have reached for the most.

It leaves my dry and tangled hair so shiny (but not in a greasy or oily way), smooth, moisturised and soft which is exactly what I want in a hair mask. I've used it three times now as I typically only use masks once a week and I still have a lot left in the pot so even though it is a bit pricey, it will last for a while even with my very long hair! Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.
