NEW Matrix Biolage Fiberstrong Collection - More Natural Care for Weak & Fragile Hair

I've been becoming more aware of my hair feeling thinner on top for the past 12 months or so, confounded by the fact that my loving brother, whom I met while out walking and sweating told me I 'look like a chrome dome' (he's a peach) so when The Professional Products Division of L’Oréal got in touch with me to introduce the New Matrix Biolage Advanced Fiberstrong collection I was all ears... and eyes. 

Made with botanical ingredients that have been naturally derived, namely the bamboo extract to repair and strengthen the hair follicle and protect from future breakage and combined with the sciencey bit - Intra-Cylane, it's a unique molecule that fills in gaps in the hairs cuticle - nature and science combined in Fiberstrong makes for some pretty great grúaig. 

Biolage Advanced Fiberstrong Shampoo (€11.05)

This paraben free shampoo lathers easily with just a small amount. Pleasantly scented, even without the accompanying conditioner this is a solid, thickening shampoo that leaves now build up on the hair. 

Biolage Advanced Fiberstrong Conditioner (€12.20)

Again paraben free, the Fiberstrong conditioner smells identical to the shampoo and coats the hair easily with a just walnut sized amount. Its thick formultion detangles as it's being applied and reduces the need for dragging a comb through wet hair and means less chance of breakage. 

Biolage Advanced Fiberstrong Masque (€12.75)

The real treat of this collection is the hair mask. I'm using this pot of moisture at the weekends as a treat. Slathering it on, covering it with a shower cap and wrapping my head in a warmed towel for 10 minutes. The towel slides right off and my hair is completely detangled and feels fuller with even the quickest blow dry before styling.

Biolage Advanced Fiberstrong Intra-Cylane™ Fortifying Cream (€16.30)

Suitable for daily use, the Fortifying Cream is applied to damp hair sparingly before drying. This has replaced my beloved Rich Argan Oil Elixir as my hair treatment of choice. I'm attributing the lasting shine to this step of the four.

Overall would I recommend this range to a friend? Abso-lutely, the price is deceptively bargainous for such high end results and the results are pretty high end - so much so that when I washed and dried my grúaig last Friday before work my boss couldn't stop touching it as she was asking me what I'd used and every one the lovely ladies in the office commented on how healthy my hair looked (Hi, girls *waves* this is the stuff!). 

You'll find the new Matrix Biolage Fiberstrong collection in all high end salons and L'Oreal haircare stockists as of this month. We like?
