How Biolage Professional Strength Recovery Rehabbed My Damaged Strands

As someone with over a decade of experience in the beauty industry (and a nearly endless supply of products at my disposal), it’d be easy to assume that I’ve never dealt with damaged hair. But the truth is, most days, convenience trumps best practices. I know tight ponytails and buns aren’t great for my strands (or edges), but when I need to get out of the door in a hurry and still look put together, they’re my go-to. Despite being equipped with all the knowledge to have incredibly healthy hair, I still need to rely on professional hair products to bring my damaged hair back to life.


When I was sent the Biolage Professional Strength Recovery line, it couldn’t have come at a better time. My hair was in desperate need of TLC, and a highly moisturizing and strengthening arsenal of products was just what the (hair) doctor ordered. Read on to find out how the Biolage Professional Strength Recovery line repaired my damaged hair.

How I Use Biolage Professional Strength Recovery In My Routine

When I received the Biolage Professional Strength Recovery line, I was coming off a hectic week where I relied heavily on my emotional support bun. You know the bun. It’s the one you hurriedly slick your hair into so you look put together, even when nothing else seems to be going your way. My go-to bun did help me survive the week—but it came at a cost. Specifically: My hair looked (and felt) extremely dry and brittle. And the broken strands of hair wrapped around my hair tie told me that my mane was in serious need of some repair.

I hit the shower and lathered my strands with the Strength Recovery Shampoo to start my routine. The formula was so creamy for a moment I thought I had accidentally grabbed the conditioner. As I began to work the shampoo through my strands, I could feel my snarls start to smooth and my hair detangle beneath my fingers. While I’m familiar with the benefits of double shampooing, it’s a step I often skip when my hair is feeling brittle. But I was happy to lather up with the Strength Recovery formula a second time—it was so luxurious-feeling that taking the time to shampoo twice felt like a treat.

After rinsing out the shampoo, I opted to skip the conditioner and go straight to the Deep Treatment Mask. The formula was thick but spread through my mane easily. Once my strands were completely coated, I clipped my hair on top of my head while I continued my shower routine. After about 10 minutes, lightly rinsed my hair and used a wide tooth comb to begin detangling. Seeing as the detangling process began while I was shampooing my hair, working out the remaining knots took just a few minutes. Once my curls were snarl-free, I rinsed the remaining treatment out of my hair.

After stepping out of the shower, I reached for the Strength Recovery Repairing Spray and spritzed it throughout my curls. The hair priming mist was incredibly lightweight and it made my strands feel smoother than they did just a moment before. It was the perfect product to prep my hair before applying my usual styling products (bonus: it smells fantastic).

While I noticed fewer loose strands in my bathtub than usual while using the Strength Recovery system, I know it will take a few more weeks to truly see the effects of this hair care routine. But if my most recent wash-and-go is any indication, Biolage has a real winner in the Strength Recovery line. In fact, since my trial with these products, the Strength Recovery Shampoo and Conditioning Cream have won a 2023 Allure ‘Best of Beauty’ Award—so I’m not the only one who feels this way. If you’re dealing with breakage and weakened strands, don’t wait to add this to your routine.
