Most Helpful Positive Review Been using it for years with straight and now permed hair
To start off I have really thick hair and it was long- down to my waist--it was a tangled mess since I had spots of waves, some straight and other parts down right curly. This was the first product I ever tried that I could spray in after washing/conditioning my hair--wait 2 minutes- and I could run a brush from scalp to the end of my hair without much tension and I lost 90% less hair with breakage and less split ends. Didn't matter if I air dried my hair, tossed it in a bun to dry with a curly look - or if I blow dried it after using this leave in spray- hair always looked shiny, wasn't greasy AND it was less tangled throughout the day.
Having used it for 2 years with that kind of hair I had a great experience each time I used it----I decided to get a perm a little bit ago...and chop off a foot of my hair. Here's the thing-- I don't know if I am supposed to be using this product like I am...but here's the deal...the perm thing is awesome...but I am a ditz when it comes to knowing what products to use ever and a perm is A LOT of work, which I knew going into it but this leave in spray has made my routine quick, easy AND I don't look like a frizzed out psycho clown--- I have been sleeping with a satin pillow case over my hair to help with the tangles but in the morning I spray a healthy dose of this leave in tonic and then 'scrunch' my hair. Dries for a minute or 2 and then I am ready to go! MY hair looks great throughout the day and doesn't look dry or frizzed out. I also use a healthy dose of it to help me comb through my hair with a wide toothed comb on the off days that I don't wash my hair. I use it like I used to, after washing my hair as well, with the same results I had with straight hair. Never looks greasy and the other bonus with my perm is that I don't have the 'crunchy' look that gels give you.
**Again...don't know if I am using the product correctly (time of usage, amount, etc)...but like, I said, it's worked for years and with different types of very
Most Helpful Critical Review Where did the orginal Tonic Go?
I used the original for a very long time. My hair was soft and shiny.....looked like I spent a million bucks on a stylist......... the replacement product leave in is very under par - I hope to see the original come back! Like ASAP!!! what a let down below there is a question>>>>> would I recommend Biolage......I guess. Shampoo & Conditioners are good.....how ever I will give no score on the new replacement. It is NOTHING like the old one! Sorry..............for all of us

Jessica from Matthews, NC
I've used the old product for years and this new formula is awful. It's too thick and weighs down my hair. I gave it 2 stars because I like the scent of it, but that's about it.
Courty from Pa
I have used this product for years and years until they changed the formula! It is nothing like the product I have loved, new formula is heavy and my hair looks awful when I apply it. The "old" formula was light and elegant, it made my hair look and feel so healthy. I will no longer be able to use this product with the new formula. Please consider bringing back the original.
Texture too heavy. Not a good feel

Bring back the old formula!
Hair product queen from NY, NY
I have used this product (original formula) for many years and was very unhappy when the formula was changed. As a result, I have found another product to use. The new formula is too thick, smells terrible and does not work. You have lost a customer.
From great to so-so!
Red! from USA
Why change the formula when you already had a good product??? I'm a professional stylist who uses Biolage products on my clients. HydraSource Daily Leave-In Tonic was an excellent product; you didn't improve on this one!
Please bring back the old formula!
Mi L from Florida
The old formula was the perfect consistency and left my hair feeling detangled, soft and shiny. They recently changed it to a thick and heavy formula that dries your hair out. Had to return. Please bring back the old formula!
I will be buying again
Ari from WV
I have been using this as part of my hair rountie for months now. It made a huge difference to my hair. It really helped me with my spilt ends when COVID didn't allow me to go to the salon.
Jilli22 from Chicago
I have been a loyal user of this product. Unfortunately they have changed the formula and now it's a like conditioner in a spray bottle. Very heavy , it leaves my hair flat. So disappointed.
Works great and angels

For Soft Healthy hair
Jenstl from Stl
Love how soft this makes my hair, it also keeps my hair shiny and without flyaways. I have used this forever, I highly recommend it!
Jilli22 from Chicago
I am so disappointed, they have changed the formula! It's like conditioner in a spray bottle ,it's too heavy. I used to use this every day it was my favorite product. I bought by 3 different bottles they're all the same, heavy conditioner in a spray bottle, and I hate it!! Why would you change something that was working just fine this is way way too heavy it leaves my hair flat put it back the way it was please or I will have to find something different in fact I'm already looking
Please Bring Back the Old Formula
Stargazer from Texas
I, too, have used this product for over 20 years. I had heard that the formula had been changed and I read the negative reviews, but I thought maybe people were being a bit dramatic, so I bought a new bottle.
It is awful. It's thick and weighs my hair down and when it dries on my hair, I cannot get a comb or brush through it. PLEASE bring back the original formula.
New formula is know good
Juls from undisclosed
I hate the new product to thick ,to strong smelling. It ways down my hair bring the old formula that you could actually spray it.
Hate the new formula and can't use it
Stacey from New York, NY
I've been using this tonic for as long as I can remember, maybe 20 years?! I can't use the new formula because the scent is way too strong and the thickness doesn't work for my hair anymore. I don't have a replacement product yet so I'm even more disappointed because I loved this product in the old formula so much. This is actually the first review I have ever written - that's how strongly I feel about this!
The best leave in conditioner!
MsWorld from Cincinnati
I use this every time I was my hair. It has helped my dead dry hair and it keeps my hair from drying out. I have been using this for years and will use this as long as they keep making it!
Mary from Indianapolis
The original tonic was phenomenal, cannot comprehend why Biolage felt the need to change it. Bring back the original please!
BRING BACK THE OLD FORMULA!!!!!
GardenGeek from undisclosed
I've been using the daily leave in tonic for over 25 years. It was perfect for my fine, color treated hair—moisturizing without leaving any heaviness AND the benefit of detangling the rats-nest fine hair turns into. BUT YOU CHANGED THE PRODUCT AND IT'S TERRIBLE! it has a heavy, greasy feel, and does not detangling my hair anymore. I'm so disappointed! Please bring back the old formula. It was a really good product.
I really wish biolage would bring back the original formula.
Joanne from Florida
They changed the original formula that worked for so many people. The new formula is horrible. It does nothing compared to the original. Its been more than a year now since the formula change. I've found a close replacement product from redken that I use but I really would like to use this tonic the way it used to be. My hair has never been the same since I stopped using this tonic. Biolage please listen to your customers , this did not need a formula change. Please fix this so we can use it again. There are many negative comments here.
Why Change a Great Thing
Nikki from Salem, OR
Please roll back the formula. Why change such a great product. I used it for 10+ years and now I have had to find a new product.
Horrible since formula change
XOkitkatXO from NJ
I love this stuff and buy it religiously. But with my new bottle I've noticed that it's coming out thicker, has a different and stronger scent, and it doesn't have as much slip as it used to. I don't like this new formula at all. Now I'm going to have to search for a new leave in to use.
Bring back the old formula
Sad Melissa from Illinois
I knew something wasn't right. After reading the other reviews I see I was right. Something is not right, They have switched the formula. Bad idea Biolage. PLEASE bring back the old formula. There is a difference. Until then, I'm off to find a new leave in conditioner. Ugh.

Being back the original formula
Rachel from Johnson City
I've been using this for 10 years! This new formula is horrible. It doesn't detangle my hair. The new formula is messy. Do not like this new formula.
Bring back the old formula
badhairday from undisclosed
I have used the Leave-In Tonic for over15 years or more and loved it. The new formula is horrible!!! It has an odor and looks like glue the consistency is so thick. At first I thought it was a bad bottle but after purchasing several I checked reviews and realized it was a formula change. The old formula was perfect...the lesson here is if it ain't broke- don't fix it!!!
I absolutely LOVE this product!
Dawn from Bozeman, MT
I use this after showering, just before combing out my hair.
