Needs to be used with the conditioner and the serum


After one and a half year of smoothening, my hair got very frizzy from the roots. It was difficult to manage, and my hair looked very ugly. To tame it, I had to try out different techniques. Like, oiling my hair every night, applying an ounce of serum, keeping on combing my hair and what not.

When I laid my eyes on this shampoo, I was hopeful. The packaging itself was very impressive. It has a very interesting curvy shape. The bottle is white which is opaque and has an open-flip cap. The consistency is a little runny, which I don’t really like.

After I started using it for three months, I started noticing my hair feeling soft. There wasn’t so much difference in the way it looked, but I liked how my hair felt. I purchased another bottle. After continuous use, the frizziness has visibly disappeared.

Af first, I was not very sure about spending money on the conditioner and the serum because I wasn’t sure if it’d be effective. But by the second month, I didn’t hesitate to purchase it. Now I use the shampoo along with the conditioner and the serum.

The combo of three has had many positive effects on my hair, and I’m loving it. Though it was slow to show results, it does not fail to give positive results eventually. All I had to do is wait.

PROS

Controls frizz

CONS

Expensive

Confusing list of ingredients


I just finished a bottle of this shampoo after using it daily. It worked well for me and did not weigh my hair down. I have dry hair and scalp. It is color-treated and tends to get frizzy. Having said that, Matrix Biolage Smoothproof Shampoo is not a great shampoo that I'll buy again. The ingredient list is rather confusing. It contains sodium laureth sulfate which strips hair of several essential oils and moisturizing agents. It contains non-water-soluble silicone which can weigh hair down and silicone is not good for the hair, especially if too much is used.

Thank goodness, I only need a small amount to wash my hair because the price is on the higher side.

When I said the ingredient list is confusing, I meant it contains acidic ingredients which are salicylic acid, citric acid, and other basic ingredients. So the acids listed decrease pH value and the bases listed increase pH value. It is just a complex formulation, and I am not ready to risk the unknown. One bottle was enough, and I won’t be repurchasing it.

4/5

PROS

Adds moisture

Mild fragrance

Makes the hair silky and soft

CONS

Expensive


I use this shampoo daily. It does not strip the moisture but leaves my hair silky and soft. I usually wait for it to go on sale because it is expensive. But since I like it very much, my patience comes in handy.

After every use, Matrix Biolage Smoothproof Shampoo provides ultimate smoothness and shine without adding weight and that's what I like about it. I also love the mild citrus smell. Matrix Biolage Smoothproof Shampoo gives me a fresh fragrance and it lingers for a good duration.

Overall, it is a good shampoo for both summer and winter. It is mild but very effective. The only thing is that the price is not affordable.
