#Review: Biostrand Basic Program Hamper and #Giveaway Launch! #Biostrand #BioHealthyhair

Hi Guys,

This is going to be a very special addition to my blog as I’m not only going to review an international brand but also launching my first giveaway.
The Biostrand team from Chicago, IL  sent me these two sample hampers to use and share my experience with you all.

Before we get into the details, let me introduce you all to this fabulous brand-
Biostrand that believes in building hair from the inside out.
They have this easy to use Basic Program for all hair types!
This 5 step Basic Program promises to maintain the proper pH level, moisture and protein thus help minimize breakage.
This formula basically focuses to increase your hair and scalp exposure to Oxygen, moisture and nutrients.
For more information on the brand click on Biostrand

Let me introduce the products in the hamper:

The first two products are sulfate free and that’s a big thumbs up👍 because sulfate-harboring shampoo often strips hair of its essential, natural oils and even strips away pigmentation from dyed hair. Sadly sulfate is so commonly present in most of the brands we use every day.
In short benefits of using sulfate free shampoo are:
a) Reduces the chances of developing scalp irritation/inflammation.
b) Increases moisture retention within the hair.
c) Improves and retains the hair’s natural oils.
d) Retains hair color in dyed hair for longer period of time.
e) Prevents the scalp from absorbing harmful chemicals.

1) TOXICLENZ– Detox Shampoo (Sulfate free)

image

This smells like some medical composition. I quite didn’t like it’s smell. The best part is the smell doesn’t stay on your hair after rinsing it off.
It’s a clear solution, quite flowy.
This detox shampoo didn’t lather much but yes I felt my clean scalp with just one wash. It’s like a detox step to prep your hair for cleansing.

2) CLINSME – Normal Shampoo (Sulfate free)

image

It has a pleasant floral smell. The texture is quite flowy just like how a shampoo should be.
This shampoo also lathers up well to give you that squeaky clean feel.

3) CORTEPHX – Conditioner

image

It has strong fruity smell with a very heavy and thick texture.

This step is the time consuming one. But as they say “No pain, no gain”, so let’s get into the details.
Unlike the other conditioners, this is safe for the scalp application too.
Application time:
Coarse/damaged hair- 45 min
Medium/normal hair- 25 min
Fine/thin hair- 15 min
Rinse it well only when it becomes non-visible.
I kept this conditioner for 25 min and let me tell you guys this didn’t make my hair cotton soft at the first wash but I could feel the calm curls. And yes this also added shine and definition to my curls.
But after two washes I could feel the difference and my hair turned to be quite manageable and very soft.

4) PHORME DAILY MOISTURE MIST –

This has very mild fruity smell.
The texture is very light and easily spreadable, small amount goes a long way!
This is basically to be used as the heat protection product while styling.
This too helped me big time in detangling and can be used everyday.

5) FINE HAIR POLISH –
This smells very mild floral fragrance.
The texture looks and feels light almost disappears from the palm after the application. Gels well with every hair strand.

image

But when I saw the bottle I said to myself -this is too less for my thick hair!
But to my surprise a very little dab covers up the long hair strands too leaving it shinier with a very natural look.
It truly works as a polish to the whole experience.
It gives you a finished look that’s shiny not oily!

The hamper comes along with a “How to use” guide, this makes the designed program very self explanatory.

Results: After three washes:

image

Pros:

This Basic 5 step program is very effective. Don’t expect the results in just after the very first wash as its like a healing process.

Within the three washes I could feel the improvised strength of my hair, more manageable and decreased breakage.

So if you’re a guy who is experiencing a bald patch or thinning of hair, or a girl who is in the process of growing her hair long or maintaining it strong then this is a must try!

I personally would prefer this hamper rather than time consuming spa treatments.

The bottles have wide openings that always ensure less product wastage.

Great customer care support from the Biostrand team.

Cons:

The smell of the products could have been improved.

Time consuming process.

How to purchase?

    Hi Shweta,

    First of all, Congratulations on your first giveaway! Collaboration between You and #Biostrand #BioHealthyhair is the best thing to have happened:)

    My hair needs extra attention as they’re quite difficult to manage, bit dry and tangled. I follow Oil+Shampoo+Conditioner regime for my hair, skipping any of them proves to be hazardous;)
    As a special treatment, I oil my hair overnight atleast once a week and use best shampoo and conditioner available to pamper them! I know my hair love this as they bounce with the shine of confidence after this:)
    Congratulations once again. Hope to win this awesome hamper from #Biostrand

    Thanks.
    Aditi
