I’m always on the lookout for affordable hair products that I can get on the ground. I hate ordering things if I can avoid it. I don’t have the patience to wait for it to arrive. So on my last trip to Sally’s I picked up a few things, and one of them was the Biotera Volumizing Conditioner. So let’s get straight into the review:
- Enhances volume without adding weight
- Gives hair exceptional shine
- Infuses fullness and thickness to each strand of hair
- Natural botanical extracts help to add body, bounce and shine
Mrs. Blacksten Says:
At only $7.29 (without a Sally’s card) for a 16.9 oz. bottle, this is probably one of the cheapest rinse-out conditioners that I own. I should mention I’m a bit of a product snob when it comes to my hair care. I immediately assume, if it’s inexpensive, that I won’t like it as much, as I like my more expensive hair care products. I don’t know why, and I know it’s silly, but it’s the truth.
Like a true product junkie, I tried the Biotera Volumizing Conditioner as soon as I got it home. The first thing that I noticed was the consistency, it’s creamy and rich, with an almost identical consistency as Devacurl One Condition. Score 1 for Biotera.
The second thing I noticed was the smell. The Biotera Volumizing Conditioner smells great, sweet but not floral or fruity, just a really nice clean smell. If you’ve used the GVP Conditioning Balm, the smell is virtually identical. Score 2 for Biotera.
So per my usual routine, I cleansed then used the Biotera Volumizing Conditioner as my rinse-out. It went on smooth and gave my hair a nice amount of slip. I was able to detangle effortlessly. When I rinsed it out, my hair was still smooth and felt moisturized. Score 3 for Biotera.
As far as being volumizing, I don't know about that. It contains proteins, so if you have fine hair, or porous hair, it'll probably help perk your hair up a bit. I didn't notice a big difference in the amount of volume I had one way or the other.
I’ve had the Biotera Volumizing Conditioner for a little over a month now, and I’ve used it as a regular rinse-out, as a leave-in, and mixed it with other conditioners for a deep treatment. I really like it, and would definitely repurchase it. It’s silicone-free, boasts decent ingredients, and is readily available. As a disclaimer, I should mention it contains alcohol, near the end of the ingredients list, although I’m wondering if it’s for preservation purposes. Whatever it’s reasons for being in the conditioner, it hasn’t had any effect on my hair.
On a scale of 1-5, I'd give the Biotera Volumizing Conditioner a 3.5.
If you’ve used the Biotera Conditioner, or any of the other Biotera products, leave me a comment and let me know what you thought. :)
