                Only need a small amount, I use it when I first get out of the shower and then comb it through. I have unruly curly frizzy hair and this works wonders.

                  I run a small amount through damp hair to control frizz and maintain some curl. I love that it doesn't have a noticeable odor and that it doesn't feel like I have any product in my hair.

                  Limiting hair washing to 2-3 times per week, this is great to apply on washed wet hair and dry with defused attached. Maintains curls until next washing.

                    • Q:

                      Hi, I have very fine straight to a little wavy hair. I am looking for a product to hold curls if I use a curling iron. Would your product do the job?

                        A:

                        Matrix Biolage Styling Curl Defining Elixir is designed to enhance the natural wave in your hair. If you have fine straight hair and are using a curling iron, then we recommend using a heat protector such as Matrix Biolage Thermal-Active Repair Gloss. We also recommend using a product such as Matrix Biolage Gelee to provide a strong hold, body, shine and control for your curly styles. Both of these products are available at Ulta and Ulta.com

                      Can I use this product on dry hair as well?

                        A:

                        We recommend that you apply Matrix Biolage Styling Curl Defining Elixir to damp hair. We do not encourage applying this product to dry hair. We find that after curly hair dries, disturbing those curls can cause frizz. Spritz your hair with a water bottle first, then apply Curl Defining Elixir.

                        Biolage Styling Curl Defining Elixir will provide frizz-free natural movement and shine without stiffness or weight. You can use it to scrunch, but will not leave the hair stiff.
