Dry, coarse hair can be extremely difficult to manage. If you have this sort of hair, you’re looking for just the right conditioner to combat the dryness. And I’m here to tell you to look no further than Matrix’s Biolage Ultra Hydrasource Conditioner! Filled with hydrating and natural ingredients, this conditioner definitely makes the cut for our ‘top conditioners for dry hair’ list! Curious? Read on to find out why!

Matrix Biolage Ultra Hydrasource Conditioner Ingredients Breakdown

What makes this conditioner so awesome? Well, for one thing, it’s got palm oil in it. Palm oil is an excellent source of Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that can protect your hair (and skin) from free radical damage. It’s basically like armor for your hair. Palm oil works well to remove dirt from your hair, but it’s super gentle – it doesn’t strip your hair of its natural oils like some harsher chemicals might. 

One thing to be aware of, is that this conditioner does contain fragrance. While this is what gives it its attractive scent, you might want to be careful if you are generally sensitive to fragrance.

But all in all, we’re loving the ingredients list of this product. Let me introduce you to some of the best ones, and you can decide for yourself if this conditioner should be your next purchase.

Aloe For Hair Explained

Aloe vera, from a health point of view, is one of the most incredible plants. It has benefits for skin and hair, and can be used both for beauty and for health. The gel, or juice, can be applied topically or ingested, and there are a range of different products that include this miracle plant, from your shampoo to your mattress. 

It’s the perfect ingredient for conditioner, particularly if your hair is dry and coarse. If you do have such hair, then you have probably heard of keratin treatments. These treatments involve a protein called keratin penetrating your hair follicle, which results in smoother, shinier and less frizzy hair.  Keratin is found in hair naturally, which is why this treatment helps your hair become smoother and healthier. But what is its connection to aloe vera? 

Aloe has a very similar chemical makeup to keratin. Like keratin, it contains oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, amino acids and sulphur. Because of its similar makeup, it can mimic this essential protein, and help give your hair a healthy boost.

Aloe vera is also great for people with a dry scalp or dandruff (which often comes along with dry hair), because it helps to repair dead skin cells. It’s loaded with hair-healthy vitamins, like Vitamins A,C,E and B12. It also contains minerals and fatty acids, which help to promote hair growth.

All that being said, I’m really not surprised that Matrix included this essential ingredient in their conditioner. After all, it’s targeting those of us with thick, dry, coarse hair – and what better ingredient to counteract that than aloe vera?

Apricot Kernel Oil For Hair Explained

When you think of oil, apricot kernel oil is likely not the first oil that comes to your mind. But maybe it should be, because it has incredible benefits for your hair! You’ve probably used a hair product somewhere along the line that contains linolenic acid or oleic acid. These fatty acids improve blood circulation to your scalp, which in turn encourages healthy hair growth. Well, apricot kernel oil contains these fatty acids naturally – so it’s definitely an ideal shampoo ingredient!

Besides this, apricot kernel oil also contains vitamins like A, C,E and K, as well as minerals such as copper, magnesium and potassium, to name a few. All these nutrients work to strengthen and rejuvenate your hair, keeping it strong and healthy.

Cupuacu Butter For Hair Explained

Does cupuacu butter sound like something you’ve never heard of before? Well, you have – it’s most commonly used to create white chocolate. But it’s not only useful in confectionary; it’s also great in hair products. It helps trap in moisture, which is why it’s used in shampoos and conditioners for dry hair lacking in moisture. Like apricot kernel oil, cupuacu butter also contains hair-strengthening fatty acids, and even protects your hair against sun damage.

Practically speaking, the process of turning the cupuacu beans into butter is very similar to the manufacturing process of cocoa beans, as they’re turned into chocolate.

If you suffer from dry, coarse hair and have tried many different products without success, then it’s time to try Matrix Biolage Ultra Hydrasource Conditioner. As you can see from the ingredients, it’s designed to protect your hair and retain moisture, even in the driest of specimens. It’s especially great if you have recently colored or bleached your hair – many conditioners won’t agree with your hair after you’ve bleached it, but this one will!

If fragrance is not an issue for you, then you will love this conditioner. It has a delicious scent, but it’s not overpowering, so you don’t feel like you poured your perfume over your head (unlike some other conditioners!). You’ll notice your hair feeling softer after even just one use, and certainly over time. It is a bit pricier than your average drug store conditioner, but think of it as an investment: with less frizz to tame, you won’t have to spend as much on sprays or oils, because your hair will be naturally smoother, softer and hydrated. Just give this conditioner a shot – and then tell me if you can look back!


What more can I say? I think it’s pretty clear that Matrix Biolage Ultra Hydrasource Conditioner is the way to go if you’re looking for an answer to your frizz and dryness problems. It’s easy to find in stores and online, and it’s available in two sizes, so you can try out a smaller bottle first to see if the product agrees with you before committing to a large size. There’s nothing like a great conditioner to give your hair a boost – and this is one conditioner you’ll definitely want to try!
