“ColorBalm can be used on all hair types and on all levels,” notes Rachel Flowers, Biolage Director of Education. “One really nice feature is that shades like Cinnamon and Red Poppy really show up on darker levels. Cinnamon adds nice warmth and Red Poppy adds a pop of red. Also, stylists are finding it’s a healthy color option for highly textured hair.” If you’re looking for intensity, turn it up with ColorBalm in Saffron Red or Red Poppy. For more natural options, go for Cinnamon or Chai Tea. And for a trendy grey or lilac tone on lighter levels, reach for Earl Grey or Lavender. Chai Tea and Earl Grey are also ideal for maintaining cool tones in blonde and highlighted hair. And the Clear formula is great for adding shine or for combining with the pigmented shades to mute and dilute the end result.   

And because ColorBalms are mixable, the color options are endless. “I love our natural ginger formula which is two parts Saffron Red, one part Cinnamon and two parts Clear,” says Flowers. “Another popular formula is one part Saffron Red, one part Red Poppy and five parts Clear for a warm, gorgeous rose gold.”

Application is a breeze. Here’s how:
1. Shampoo with Biolage ColorLast Shampoo and towel dry hair.
2. Spread ColorBalm evenly through the hair using fingers and a comb.
3. Process five to 10 minutes depending on desired level of intensity.
4. Rinse and style.
5. Direct clients to reapply once or twice a week, depending on hair porosity and desired results.

According to Flowers, ColorBalm will fade gradually over time, depending on the condition of the hair and the shade used. Vibrant shades like Red Poppy and Saffron Red, for example, will last longer than subtle hues like Chai Tea and Earl Grey. From a fun color change to a subtle tonal shift to a refresh for an existing color shade, Biolage ColorBalm boosts color and care as simply as applying conditioner.
