Product Review | Biolage Keratindose Leave-In

If you haven't picked up a bottle of Biolage's Keratindose leave in yet based on my craving post, I'm here to tell you that you have made a terrible mistake and lost valuable time.  My shipment arrived last week.  By the time the package arrived, my wash day was over a week overdue.  At this point, my hair was in need of moisture so I decided to put the Keratindose to its first test.
 Instinctively, I reached for the Pro-Keratin Leave in and began to mist my old, dry, bun.  Even before Keratindose touched my hair I knew I was in for a treat.  Because the bottle is clear, I could actually see the product.  By the looks of it, the Keratindose is a creamy leave-in in a spray bottle.  Creamy leave-ins are a dream come true for thick, coarse hair like mine.

Then I sprayed......Then it touched my hair.....Then I fell in love.  After placing my Keritandose on the counter, I picked up my Misto sprayer and sealed my hair with oil.  I am not kidding when I say that my hair was ultra moisturized the entire day.  No, let me correct my last statement.  My hair wasn't just moisturized, it actually felt conditioned all day.  Conditioned hair is on a much higher level than moisturized hair.

Biolage's Keratindose has filled a GREAT VOID in my hair regimen.  For the longest time I've been looking for a creamy leave in with ultra miosturizing qualities.  But, at the same time, I enjoyed using a watery leave-in for detangling purposes during the roller set.  I thought I would never have my cake and eat it too.  But, my friends, Keratindose has come into my life and changed everything!  EVERYTHING!
Keratindose looks like a hydrating moisturizer but sprays like a watery leave-in
This is the most conditioning/hydrating leave in I own!  It sprays like a watery leave-in but it operates like a creamy leave in.  On top of that, my Keratindose detangles my hair like a BOSS!  In fact, I'm gonna say that I like it much more for detangling than my It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In.  Why?  For two reasons:
  1. Gives waaaaaaay more slip. Which means easier detangling.
  2. I've never had the urge to use It's a 10 on my non-tangled hair. Usually I just use it as a spot treatment on my difficult tangles. With Keratindose, I want to use it all over.  
 This stuff is so amazing that it actually coaxed me to experiment with air drying again.  This past weekend was my first successful air dry in years.  Biolage has stepped it's game way up with this product.  My household will never be without it again.   To me Keratindose IS the definition of a leave-in conditioner.  Meaning, it doesn't feel like I'm applying a leave-in product, it feels like I'm using a leave-in that actually conditions my hair.

  You need this product more than you know. Those people who left glowing  Amazon reviews were speaking the honest truth.  I have nothing else to say. Just trust me on this one.

  2. Thanks for the review. I bought a sample size to test it out. Please do an update later, I'd be curious to know if you start to feel your hair is over conditioned (moisture/protein balance is off) after extended use.

  3. Hi Mrs T! You make a great point. I'll be on the lookout for that. One thing I do like about it is how it has protein and yet it's ultra moisturizing. Let me know what you think.

  4. Hi Nadege

    How often would you recommend using this leave in

    I am so cautious about protein containing leave-ins as I do not want to experience a protein overload

    Yet at the same time I believe I am not sensitive to protein.

    Any thoughts?

  5. Hi Thabi! I would say that, with this product, you wouldn't have to worry much about protein overload because it's so highly moisturizing. I think I'd be more concerned with product build up since it's consistency is similar to a light conditioner. I'm also going to experiment with diluting some of it in a separate bottle for daily use or for when I want a lighter formula.

  6. Oh boy! I'm glad you love this as it is easily accessible here in Australia so i'll be adding it to my wish list. If you say it detangles like a dream, then i sure want to try it cause i'm almost 50 weeks post relaxer and my hair will need all the love it can get.
