Biolage Scalptherapie Oil Control Treatment Review

Biolage Scalptherapie Oil Control Treatment ($16.00)

The purpose of this product is to minimize the effects of oily scalp and hair with a “refreshing mist.” To apply, you simply mist it onto your scalp to ward off greasiness and flattening of your ‘do. As I am only getting into the world of hair products, I can’t say that I would incorporate this into my usual routine if only because it is such a targeted and specific product. I’m lucky enough that my hair doesn’t get noticeably greasy until day 3 of unwashed hair.

I liked using this on warmer days, because it was “refreshing” against my scalp, and it is a nice option to use when you’ve forgotten to wash your hair because you’re way too busy procrastinating over a Constitutional Law midterm.

Would you use this product? Have you?

I would defiantly try this product! I am trying not washing my hair everyday. (To cut down on the damage to my hair) so by the end of day two (of not washing my hair) My hair can be a little greasy at the roots.

Hey Meg! Yeah, I used to wash everyday, but now I wash every other day and it’s much better now. Just takes awhile!

yea, I would try this as well. However, my only reservation with it would be if it makes the hair “wet” at the roots it might mess up all the time I spend trying to get my hair straight.

Exactly!!! My hair (and face) all of a sudden decided to be extra oily, so if I wash it too often, it dries the ends,if I skip two days it’s NASTY. I straighten my hair too, so I don’t want to damage it more than I already do. I used a trick from some video blog on iTunes (I think it was ford models), if you’re pressed for time, use face powder on your roots, make sure it’s the color of your skin, not hair. So far I’ve used it twice and I think it works, I keep pulling my hair up anyway, so I forgot to check later =)

I didn’t experience any “wetting” action, dried pretty quickly and didn’t look like I had added more product or anything!

You can buy this at salon stores like Trade Secret, Regis, and even drugstores and grocery stores carry Biolage, like Walgreens, CVS and Wal Mart, hope this helps! Where do you live?

i live in the middle of nowhere in maine. but theres a salon right next to my work, i’ll check it out when i work this weekend, i’ll definatly grab it if they have it, i get a discount there =P

It sounds weird, but sometimes what I do is just wet my scalp and use lathered shampoo on it, rinse it off in the sink, and then towel it dry. It buys me an extra day! I might buy the product though… anyone tried that shampoo powder they have before?

That’s a great tip, Erin 🙂

I’ve tried a powder product that’s supposed to have similar results, but it felt so odd sprinkling powder on my head, lol.

I have this but have only used it once. My hair gets somewhat greasy the second day, enough to want to try something for it. My old mainstay was baby powder, which worked fine because my hair is blonde. But I sprayed this on, let it dry, brushed through and then used a curling iron (my usual styler) and it seemed to work great. I’ll definitely keep using it.

Ok, so the product addict that I am! I went out and bought this product. I had to try it, plus I am in the market for something like this. NOW, I have only used it twice now but I really like it! I have sprayed it on my roots on the top of my head and then flipped my head over and sprayed it on the bottom. Then sort of fluff my hair around let it dry. I then style it and spray with hairspray and I am good to go. I think it is a keeper.
