The product

Hair in dire need of repair? Find your strands feeling a bit weak and feeble? You’ve come to the right place to recover your natural strengthened locks. Biolage Strength Recovery Shampoo and Biolage Strength Recovery Conditioning Cream to the rescue!

This dynamic powerhouse duo infuses their vegan formulations with natural active squalene to give your dry locks the moisture boost they deserve. Not only does the Biolage Strength Recovery Conditioning Cream add much needed moisture, the Biolage Strength Recovery Shampoo also works overtime to repair and strengthen your strands, lathering up richly to wash away impurities while building more resilient, softer hair. 

To secure just that, make sure to use the whole Biolage Strength Recovery range including the Biolage Strength Recovery Deep Treatment. And if you need any more convincing, here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this vegan power-packed hair-saving duo… 

The panel

Beauty Crew sent the Biolage Strength Recovery Shampoo to use in conjunction with the Biolage Strength Recovery Conditioning Cream to 100 women aged between 30-45 who were looking to strengthen their strands.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Biolage Strength Recovery Shampoo and the Biolage Strength Recovery Conditioning Cream.

The reparative after-effects of stronger hair: Who wouldn’t want to use a powerhouse shampoo and conditioner duo just ONCE and see a whole mass of benefits? Well you’d be mad to say no. This duo is able to create up to three times stronger hair with additional deep conditioning, and reviewers were delighted by the strength they felt and saw following use. Biolage is repair that cares, which takes us to the next point... 

The vegan active-packed formula: Our Review Crew® members loved that the products were made with vegan ingredients, especially since they were utilising vegan formulated squalene to give hair that much needed moisture boost.

The subtle fresh scent: While sometimes a product's scent is so strong that it’s honestly just overpowering, that is definitely not the case here. Both Biolage Strength and Recovery products feature subtle fresh scent that reviewers found fresh and appealing.

The verdict

“I've enjoyed using this product so much! I have damaged, thin and frizzy hair, [which] could be attributed to heat damage and frequent colouring. Using this shampoo has restored some balance, and given my hair much-needed nourishment. My hair feels soft, and not so brittle anymore. I've used a variety of shampoos in the past, but I will be sure to repurchase this when I run out. I recommend this to all family and friends looking to restore balance and make your hair feel stronger.”

“The Biolage brand can do no wrong! Starting with the first thing you notice, the scent, it’s fresh, light and elevated. After the first hair wash I noticed an instant difference. Since having babies my hair is far more frizzy and dry than it has ever been, but I found this shampoo really tamed the mane. Normally I would never leave my hair to air dry but to see the full effect of the product you must! My hair felt smooth and sleek, and literally bouncy. Would recommend it to anyone and everyone!”

“I loved everything about this conditioning cream including that it is budget- friendly while being a vegan and cruelty-free product! I have been using the full set including shampoo and mask and have noticed a visible difference. My hair is stronger, smoother and less hair has been falling out. Winner! My friends have also commented on how shiny my hair is since using the products - will definitely purchase again! Could not recommend enough and will be suggesting Biolage to all of my friends! 10 out of 10 from me!”

“I have been using this conditioner for almost four weeks. It is beautiful on my dry and damaged hair. I have quite fine hair that is prone to damage and this conditioner is creamy and nourishing on my hair. I used the Strength Recovery Shampoo and the Deep Treatment and it was a perfect combination to help my hair feel noticeably less damaged, with less frizz. My hair has been soft, tangle-free and easier to manage without weighing it down at all. The lovely scent was gentle and not overpowering at all which is important to me. I love that the packaging is made from recycled materials. Would definitely recommend!”
