If you’re anything like us, you love to switch up your hair color as often as you change your nail color. While it’s easy to apply a fresh coat of paint to your nails, switching up your hair color isn’t quite that simple. Luckily, there are ways to temporarily change your hue at home—without the help of a professional colorist and without any damage.
Not only do Biolage ColorBalms help enhance and transform your hue with a temporary splash of color, but these color depositing conditioners also deeply hydrate your mane. Want to learn more? Keep scrolling for our complete Biolage ColorBalms review.
What are Biolage ColorBalms?
Biolage ColorBalms are color depositing conditioners that can refresh, intensify, enhance, and condition hair color—all in 10 minutes or less. Picture the same Biolage conditioning you know and love, only with a boost of temporary color. The vegan, damage-free formulas come in seven shades ranging from natural to bold to suit whatever mood you’re in. Ideal for all hair types and textures (color-treated or not), the Biolage ColorBalms leave hair 10 times more conditioned after just one use*
So, what’s the difference between this color depositing conditioner and regular hair dye? Since the Biolage ColorBalms only deposit a specific amount of pigment onto the hair and don’t lift any of your permanent shade, they won’t do any damage.

How To Use Biolage ColorBalms
Wondering how Biolage ColorBalms will fit into your routine? We’re here to help. First things first: We always recommend doing a patch test before applying any product throughout your hair. See the back of your ColorBalms bottle for directions on how to patch test the product.
Start by cleansing with the Biolage ColorLast Shampoo to prep your mane before applying the conditioner. Once your shampoo is thoroughly rinsed out, it’s time to apply the ColorBalm shade of your choice.
Spread the product evenly through clean, towel-dried hair from root to tip using your fingers or a comb. Use enough product to saturate the hair completely. Let the formula sit on your hair for five to 10 minutes before rinsing. Note: The longer you leave the product on, the more intense and keep your color will become.
You can use ColorBalms up to once per week or whenever your color needs a refresh. Fun fact: You can also intermix ColorBalms to create your own custom shade.
Will Biolage ColorBalms cover gray hair?
Since these formulas are considered deposit-only color, they’re not made to cover gray hair.
