Product Review: Biolage Oil Control Treatment

What makes this Biolage Scalpthérapie Oil Control Treatment ($16) so unique? It's a cross between a dry shampoo, a scalp stimulating treatment, and an anti-dandruff prevention product. It contains glycerin to help absorb any excess oil and mint and kola nut to energize and balance the scalp. Guys will love it too. There's that fun tingly element to it when you spray the product onto your scalp, plus the scent is clean and refreshing without being floral or sweet.

I also have to mention the nozzle because the pointy appendage on the spritzer indicates to me that this company has thought long and hard about hair. It allows for precise application as opposed to other dry shampoo powders that can sometimes concentrate and clump in one area of the hair and/or scalp. All you have to do is aim it at your scalp and massage it in. Tip: your hair will look much better if you brush it out after you spritz.

I liked that I saw immediate results. Once I worked it into my scalp a little bit, I noticed that my hair wasn't separating and shining as much as before. Most of the oil was absorbed and it really helped increase the longevity of my blow-dry.

Yay, thumbs up to Biolage. I was hoping this old-time brand would redeem itself after my last unfortunate conditioning experience, and it didn't let me down.
