MATRIX BIOLAGE DEEP SMOOTHING SHAMPOO REVIEW
I have extremely frizzy, unruly and curly hair. Whenever I wash my hair, it gets frizzy and unmanageable. I wanted to get my hands on the matrix range especially the hydratherapy. But in the store I spotted this one and thought “just what my hair needs” and picked up this one instead. It also was paraben free so all the more reason for me to try it! Read on to see if this lived up to its claim.
What the website claims? Smooththérapie – smoothes frizzy, unruly, medium to coarse hair with the silky serum of Camellia flower seed to continuously control frizz in hot, humid seasons while replenishing hair’s moisture during dry cool seasons. Hair stays naturally smooth,year-round, even in up to 97% humidity*.(*system of shampoo, conditioner and serum.)
Cleanses as it smooths and helps control frizz with light weight nourishment for polished shine, smoothness and manageability.
Directions to use: Wet hair and lather with a gently massaging motion. Rinse. Follow with Biolage Deep smoothing conditioner.
Price: Rs.190 for 200 ml
My take on the product: I was skeptical about this range as it says “*system of shampoo, conditioner and serum.” So it means I should use the shampoo, conditioner and the serum together to actually get the result! But I did not mind that as all I wanted was something to tame my hair. I wanted to get all the three products, but the serum was out of stock. So I got the shampoo and conditioner. The shampoo comes in a usual matrix white bottle with a flip cap. The cap is pretty tight and travel friendly! The shampoo is transparent and is quite thick. It has a refreshing mild citrusy smell, which I guess is the smell of Camellia flower. It produces good lather and cleanses my hair completely (even after oiling my hair and using this shampoo it cleansed my hair well). And that is all it does! It really does nothing to control the frizz and make my hair manageable. I used this with the matching conditioner first to see its effect. Not satisfactory at all. My hair was not smooth or was not moisturized. My hair felt ok only after applying loreal shine intense serum which I am using right now. But I do this with all my shampoos. This does not make any difference to my hair at all! And next I used this shampoo with another conditioner (organic surge) and my hair experienced one of the worst fly aways and frizz ever! I was not able to control the frizz even with the serum ☹ This shampoo is a total failure for me. (May be it will work for less coarse or wavy hair.)
Pros of matrix biolage deep smoothing shampoo:
1. It does not contain paraben.
2. It has a mild ciltrus smell which is refreshing.
3. It is inexpensive and the quantity is good for the price.
Cons of matrix biolage deep smoothing shampoo:
1. Does not control frizz and does not help in managing my hair.
2. Has SLS.
3. Makes my hair extremely dry and frizzy when I use a conditioner other than matrix deep smoothing one.
4. It has to be followed by the matching conditioner and serum for this product to work.
5. Not easily available in shops. Can be purchased only from professional salons.
IMBB rating : 2.5/5 ( just for not having parabens and the smell )
Do I recommend it? Never! Ladies please do not get this if you have dry and frizzy hair like me. It will do nothing!
Will I repurchase this? No! I want to try the hydratherapy and I regret purchasing this!
