    Comments about Matrix Biolage Hydrasource Aqua-Gel Conditioner:

    Goes on like a heavy gel and is impossible to work through hair. Feels like hairspray. And doesn't seem to wash out. Hair was really frizzy after drying. Terrible. I had to exchange for the conditioning balm.

    Comments about Matrix Biolage Hydrasource Aqua-Gel Conditioner:

    I bought this because I love biolage products, especially the hydrasource line. Unfortunately, it did not hold up to my expectations. It doesn't feel like it conditioned my hair at all. When rubbed between my palms it felt like a gel-conditioner, but left my hair feeling like it was shampooed versus conditioned. It doesn't lather once in your hair, and doesn't leave the soft creamy feeling their traditional conditioner does. I tried it as a "cleansing conditioner" in replace of my shampoo (I have an asymmetrical bob) and it seemed to work well on the length but not my roots. I just exchanged it for the conditioning balm of the same line. I would especially not recommend for people with longer than shoulder length hair, because it seems like it would tangle it.

    Not what I was expecting at all

        Comments about Matrix Biolage Hydrasource Aqua-Gel Conditioner:

        My hair is in between fine and coarse, but has a tendency to get limp and greasy if I use conditioner regularly. I thought this product would be a nice alternative because it is supposed to be "impart light-weight, oil-free moisture." When I went to use the conditioner for the first time, it was like trying to spread glue on my hair. Unlike normal conditioner, it does not easily spread from root to tip, can't be worked through the hair, and doesn't have a detangling effect. I couldn't tell if the product was rinsed off well, and it left my hair feeling gross like I'd spent the day in the ocean. It had absolutely no moisturizing effect whatsoever. I returned it immediately.

          Comments about Matrix Biolage Hydrasource Aqua-Gel Conditioner:

          It was my first time using a conditioner this lightweight, so when my hair soaked it all in, I had thought it would not be a suitable product for me. However, it works well for maintenance on the ends and length. The formula takes some getting used to, but for those who feel that their conditioner weighs them down, consider this as a possible alternative.

            Been using for a month and love it. I wash hair everyday and I use this conditioner every other wash. I always have good hair days on the days I use this conditioner. I think others may be using too much. Even though it feels like it dissolves it's on there so you don't need to apply more. I like the tingling feeling. It's so different than anything else I've used. You just have to get used to it. A must for fine thin hair!

            Comments about Matrix Biolage Hydrasource Aqua-Gel Conditioner:

            If you are used to a heavier cream conditioner, then it will take awhile for your hair to adapt to it. It is worth the wait if you have fine hair. At first I didn't like this product but after weeks my hair has felt more light weight with less product build up. Like any new treatments you should give it a couple of weeks to see the benefits.

                I got this as a sample. I would have never used it if I had realized it had menthol in it. I loathe how it feels. My head still feels tingly and cold an hour later. It also was super thick. I had to use some of my regular conditioner to thin it out enough to cover my hair.

                    I tried the samples that were given to me, and I regretted it. It was not a smooth application. It was difficult to distribute through my hair. It left a putrid chemical smell afterward, almost like burnt plastic.

                      I don't know why this conditioner has received so many bad reviews.... maybe this just isn't the right conditioner for their type of hair. This product seems to be for a very specific hair type. For me, it's perfect. I have long, very fine, highlighted wavy hair. It gets greasy at the root easily with most conditioners, but dry on the ends due to the color and waves. This conditioner is perfect. Lightweight, but detangles and rinses clean. Smells great like most Biolage products.
