How It's a 10 Miracle w/Keratin & Biolage Strengthening Masque combined together to create hair perfection!

There I was, minding my own business the other day, when I received the following text message:



You could imagine how pleasantly surprised I was to receive such a glowing review so I immediately responded back to find out more. I did what anyone in my position would do....I send her a reply text and requested photographic evidence. Minutes later we were having an actual phone conversation and she proceeded to tell me how excited she was about the loveliness levels of her hair. When she visited the beauty store, she intented to buy Biolage’s Cera Repair after reading my battle post but couldn’t find it (cera repair is sold only online). Instead she picked up the Intensive Strengthening masque which also contains ceramides. She also read my review of It’s a 10 Leave-in and was also on a mission to pick it up but noticed the Keratin version of the same product and opted to upgrade.

I’ve got to preface the rest of my post by mentioning that this individual is not your typical “hair fanatic” like the rest of us. I’m sure she not a member of any of the hair boards and probably doesn’t read any hair blogs. Truth is, she probably only browsed through my blog because we’ve known each other personally for years.

With that said, I tried to be cautious when asking for pictures to share on the blog ‘cause I know that not everyone is comfortable with that kind of thing. Surprisingly she quickly agreed. Not only did she share some pics with us but she also talked a little about what she did to achieve that amazing result.

So without further adieu, here is what she described to me via email:

Hey Nadege,

Round 2...same Great Results! Almost no hair shedding...not only does my hair feel and look incredibly soft and silky, this deep conditioning regimen is also really strengthening my hair, too. I've attached pics, but trust me when I say, my hair looks so much better in person - I just wish I were a better photographer so I could really showcase what these products are doing for my hair. Personally, I think any good conditioning products may do as long as you leave it on your hair for at least 30 mins, but here's an overview of what I used:

While showering I used:
Dove Nutrive Therapy Shampoo - washed and rinsed twice; 3 mins

After showering, I applied:
It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin - lightly sprayed all over hair and massaged through hair and scalp.
Matrix Biolage Intensive Strengthening Masque - massaged all over hair after applying the It's a 10 product. Placed a plastic cap on head and heated hair w/blow dryer for 3-5mins (will skip this step next time to see if results change)
Let the product sit on hair for another 45mins (this is the most important step I think)
Rinsed hair with luke warm water first, then finished rinsing w/cold water
Blow dryed hair, and applied a little Biosilk before using a flat iron to style....
And Voila - the soft and silky feel of my hair was about 90% comparable to when I go to professional salons! Once I master blowing and flat ironing, you guys aren't going to be able to tell me nothin' :o)

Thanks for the ceramide recommendation. Keep up the blog - it's working miracles...I'm living proof!




I’m really excited for her. When we talked on the phone I couldn’t stop smiling as I visualized how amazing her hair looked. I’m so glad she reached out to me because she actually introduced me to two new amazing products. I purchased them last weekend and had a chance to test drive. I won’t say much in this post but I will tell you that I was all smiles. In a later post, I’ll recreate her process with these two products and tell you how it goes.

By the way, I love hearing about success stories so if you have a great story to tell about products you’ve tried from this blog, or even products I haven’t heard about before, feel free to send me an email, leave a comment, or post it on our fan page.

  2. Well I went on the hunt in my local area for these particular products. However, I found "It's a 10 leave-in- but not the one with keratin. I could not find the Biolage strengthening masque but could only find the strengthening conditioner. So I can not piggy back on the same results. However, I used the regular It's a 10 leave in and the Biolage strengthening conditioner and sat under dryer for 30 minutes. My hair looks and feels FAB!! I can not wait to order the exact products and see what my results are. Thanks Nadege for this blog. It has made a world of difference for my hair and hair journey.

  4. Love 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin, especially when I apply it on damp hair. It has “slip”, great for detangling. I will try out biolage mask next. Repair Damaged Hair

  5. Just so you know Biosilk dries out the hair because it has alcohol in it. When others have not used theirs in a few months and go to use it they smell a heavy alcohol odor. Others have reported that with continuous use of biosilk their hair grew brittle. A better alternative could be Chi Silk Infusion and or Sedu Anti-Frizz Pollishing Treatment with Argon Oil. I prefer the latter of the two and swear by that brand. I own a Sedu revolution blowdryer and straightener and my hair is soft, shiny, manageable, and my splits are almost a thing of the past. If you combine the three Sedu products I guarantee you'll love your hair. The Sedu products can be purchased at Folica.com

  7. Biosilk do make your hair very very dry. It does gives your hair a good slip and smells good. But having dry hair leads to breakage
