Matrix Biolage Deep Smoothing Serum - Review

Hello BFFs,

So it’s finally 15th June & we are still awaiting for rain in Vadodara. I hope the rain is also missing us & it will soon visit us (come soon ASAP).We just had the Sunburn event in Vadodara last Saturday, which I missed due to my running exams. But next year I will surely attend the one.

Anyways coming to the point I am going to review the hair serum which I am using from last 1 year to tame my unruly & frizzy hair which collects the air unnecessarily & get knotted easily at the end. The product which I am talking about is Matrix Biolage smoothing serum. I am recommended to use the shampoo & conditioner from this Matrix brand  by my hair stylist when I had gone for haircut. Matrix is very famous brand which is used by many professional salons for different hair treatment. Read further to know how did the product performed for my dry & frizzy hair..

Product Description:

A great solution for frizzy, rough, unmanageable, entangled and dry hair, this serum from Matrix can work wonders for your tresses, giving you lively and lush hair. Nourished with avocado, grape-seed oils and frizz taming polymers, this serum smoothens your hair, strengthening it from the roots. With a non-sticky texture, this serum gives your hair a subtle shine that makes it look healthy and nutritious. This serum protects your hair from heat if you use it before blow drying. If you use it after blow drying, it will make your hair smoother and shinier.

How to Use: Work a small amount of product in hands and apply evenly through damp hair. Blow-dry or style as desired. Can be re-applied throughout the day for added shine and frizz control

List of Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethiconol, C12-15 alkyl benzoate, Persea Gratissima/Avocado Oil, Vitis Vinifera/Grape Seed Oil, Limonene, Hexyl Cinnamal, Coumarin, Linalool, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Hydroxycitronellal, Amyl Cinnamyl, Geraniol, Alpha isomethyl ionone, Isoeugenol Benzyl Benzoate, Cinnamyl Alcohol, Parfum/Fragrance.

Prices: 275 INR for 100ml (Available easily on Flipkart, Nykaa, Amazon)

My Experience:

I have very long hair till my lower back which is dry towards end & I have lots of baby hair on my crown area. After the hair wash my hair tends to get a lot of static charge & it becomes too frizzy & uncontrollable to manage the hair. When I was kid my mummy used to apply oil after hair wash & braid it properly so it will not get tangled. As we grow up we don’t like to apply oil the whole day so this Matrix biolage smoothing serum comes to the rescue.

The product packaging is simple with flip cap transparent bottle. The serum is transparent & runny. The detailed ingredient list & how to use instructions are printed on the sticker itself. The product can be used for 36 months from the manufacturing date.

I am using this product from the last 1 year & I am completely satisfied with the product performance. I apply the Matrix biolage smoothing serum on my towel dried hair for detangling it easily. The fragrance of the product is very fruity which lingers on the hair for about 10 minutes only. My hair feels soft & shiny after applying this serum. The frizz is tamed a bit but the unruly baby hair are still there on my crown area. So this will not work for the baby hair taming. The product is non sticky but heavy so use only some drops or else it can weigh down the hair. I have used it after the blow dry & straightening to give the shine to my hair & it works great that way also. It gives a bit shine to hair if we use it on the dry hair (2 days of unwashed hair.)

However the effects are temporary only. It will not change the structure of your hair or give any improvement in the dryness of hair like oils do.


  • Nonsticky formula
  • Gives shiny hair
  • Budget friendly
  • Small amount can work on long hair
  • Travel friendly packaging
  • Easily available on online stores.


  • No long term effect on the hair texture
  • It will not tame small frizzy hair completely.

BFF Rating: 4/5

Final Verdict:

I will refer this to everyone who wants a bit of instant extra shine to hair without using too much chemicals. Don’t expect any wonders from this product regarding your hair texture improvement.
