You may remember a few weeks ago I had the honor of unlocking the beauty of nature, decoded by sciences, at the release of the new, reinvented Matrix Biolage collection, held at the beautiful L’Oreal Academy in Toronto. The collection was inspired by botanical ingredients and recreates various ranges to harness their very own natural element. With powerful, natural ingredients like cotton, aloe, camellia and orchid, the complete range provides a nourishing haircare regimen for all hair needs. It will help combat limp hair, control frizz, and prevent colour fading and dehydration.
Matrix Biolage collection features 4 new lines coming this April, including the ColorLast that lets you discover the power of the orchid for salon-vibrant colour that lasts for up to 9 weeks, HydraSource that helps you bring your hair back to life with 15x more moisturize with the help of the aloe plant, SmoothProof lets you experience the endurance of the Camellia plant for perfectly smooth hair for up to 72 hours and VolumeBloom that plunges into voluminous effect of cotton for more volume after only one application.
I’ve been testing out 2 of the 4 new lines, the Matrix Biolage ColorLast, which has helped to keep my black hair blacker in between treatments and Matrix Biolage HydraSource which has helped to keep my hair hydrated and highly moisturized in this dry, dull, long winter season we’ve been having.
Matrix Biolage ColorLast Shampoo is a luxurious cleanser that’s designed for colour treated hair. It’s enriched with Orchid Extract which contain flavonoids that help to filter out UV rays that can oxidize your colour. It helps to nourish and protect the hair while maintaining the depth, tone, vibrancy and shine to your colour treated hair.
Matrix Biolage ColorLast Shampoo has a rich, yet lightweight, clear, gel like consistency that gently cleansers the hair of any impurities and product buildup. It lathers well with only the smallest amount and washes clean away without feeling weighted down. It has a fresh, light scent like walking into a botanical garden thanks to the lovely scent of the orchids. It leaves hair feeling incredibly soft and hydrated, naturally shiny with a vibrant, glossy finish. It helps my colour from fading and retains the truest colour possible for weeks, as if I just came back from the salon. It retails for $17.95 for 400ml.

I also got to experience PeliCure which is a brand new salon service that leaves your hair shiny, silky and softer and is so good it will leave your nails jealous. It features carbonizing powder, an innovated product that enhances the properties and efficiency of the treatment at the backbar. It boosts the penetration of the actives through the hair, stimulates blood circulation as it is massaged into the scalp and rebalances hair to its natural pH after any colour service. Hair is left silky smooth, shiny, softer and more manageable for weeks on ends.
