            I love how this product smells. It's subtly floral without being too sweet. I think this is a good option for those seeking to switch-up their hair care routine to something free of parabens and other harmful chemicals. I tested Biolage R.A.W for free, but all opinions are my own.

              Comments about Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Recover Shampoo:

              I've never tried any Biolage products before so was super excited to try this out. I color my hair so I was super excited to see that the ingredients used were natural and not harsh. When I opened the bottle, I was immediately greeted with an amazing smell. The shampoo smelled so refreshing and relaxing. It also wasn't too strong of a smell. The shampoo lathered well and left my scalp feeling super refreshed. I didn't notice until my hair was dry, but the shampoo definitely gave it more volume. I'd highly recommend this product to those with fine to normal hair. I was given the products for free to test but all opinions are 100% my own.

              Comments about Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Recover Shampoo:

              I really like this shampoo in terms of how it makes my hair feel and appear! For me, the smell is a little funky (but when paired with the wonderful-smelling matching Recover conditioner; that doesn't matter) and the formulation is a bit liquid-y, which makes me feel like it's more natural but it sometimes gives me a little issue when I'm pouring it into my hand to apply. Overall though, I have a really positive impression from this shampoo and will probably purchase next time around. I did receive this product free for testing purposes.

              I received this product for free in exchange for my unbiased review. I think that this shampoo is just ok. Love the fact that it is naturally based and sulfate free - great for color treated hair! However it does not lather well and i have cheaper sulfate free shampoos that I think do a better job. For the price, I wouldn't get this again. However, the conditioner that goes with it is fantastic!

                This product is probably the best shampoo I've ever used. Great simple ingredients and no fillers and carcinogenic additives. I love it! Some people complain about it and how the shampoo doesn't lather up how they want, but that doesn't mean the product is not getting the job done.
                Since I'm using it my hair is not frizzy or dry anymore. Biolage leaves my hair feeling soft and hydrated and smelling like I'm a walking garden.
                I tested Biolage R.A.W as a complimentary product, but all opinions are honest and my own.

                  When there are no parabens, the lather is different. And yeah, you have to get used to the fact that it doesn't bubbly up but really, that is a good thing.

                  I like this shampoo but I love love the paired conditioner. Since I buy my shampoos and conditioners in pairs, I'll be buying this duo again!

                  Check out this green list...so great to find a quality product that can check all these items off my wish list.

                  This is a gentle shampoo that leaves my hair feeling really soft and smelling SO nice! Not the best if you have an oily scalp (like myself) as I feel it doesn't have a strong clarifying effect to tackle grease or dandruff. This is a great in-between shampoo for those days you don't have a lot of product buildup, but just want silky, soft hair. I think it would be best for fine to normal hair. Adds great volume and bounce. But the scent is definitely my favorite! I received this shampoo complimentary for review, but all opinions are 100% honest and my own.
