Great for natural waves!

    Comments about Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Heat Styling Primer:

    I absolutely hate to put product in my hair, but my new haircut has made my natural waves curl and the summer humidity had it insanely frizzy. Lady suggested this product because her daughter used it. It was a little sticky while it dried, but once it did, it held my waves all day and the next day my hair was really soft and still wavy.

      Comments about Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Heat Styling Primer:

      Using the primer alone is great since I blow dry my hair to style. Worked great and didn't feel like my hair was fried after I blow-dryed. It is color treated and curly hair. I received this product complimentary for review purposes. #complimentry #free

      Comments about Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Heat Styling Primer:

      I love the scent of this product, and find it valuable whenever I plan on doing a straighter, sleeker look with my heating tools. This protects and nourishes the hair from the crazy heat of an iron. That is one product I can get behind.

      Best used as a set with shampoo + cond for blow-dry styles

      By Jasmine

      About Me Product Junkie

      Comments about Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Heat Styling Primer:

      This heat primer has a few great benefits, but also some drawbacks. As a set, with the shampoo and the conditioner, I really love it! But if you're not going to use the set and blow dry your hair, it leaves a lot of residue. It smells great, and the ingredients are more natural, which I love.

      I received the Biolage R.A.W 3-piece set in exchange for my honest review.

      Didn't wow me

      By Sarah G

      from Tennessee

      About Me Beauty Conscious

      Comments about Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Heat Styling Primer:

      This product was honestly all around disappointing.
      I prefer any heat protectant to be in a spray form, I've never used one in a cream like this and it didn't seem to spread through my hair like I assumed it would. I received this product complimentary in exchange for my honest opinion.

      Protects, but a little heavy

        Comments about Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Heat Styling Primer:

        I received this product free for testing, but my review is honest! I really enjoyed using this product! It smells great, and as someone with bleach blonde hair, it really helped protect against styling tools. I used it pre-blowdrying and my hair felt smooth and strong. The only complaint I have is that it was a little heavy in my hair. Four stars!

          I saw no difference with this product. I liked the smell but nothing else stood out to me. Me hair was greasy and still frizzy.

          • Smells Great
          • Strong Hold

          Cons

          • Greasy

          Best Uses

          • Thicker Hair

          Comments about Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Heat Styling Primer:

          This product requires an exact amount to deliver results without weighing down my hair with grease and residue. I have trouble finding that sweet spot and end up needing another product like dry shampoo to revive my style. My hair is fine and wavy, so perhaps it works better for someone with thicker hair. It is always gentle on my color-treated hair and smells great like the rest of the line. I tested Biolage R.A.W. for free; all opinions are my own.

          Comments about Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Heat Styling Primer:

          Tried this multiple times... too heavy for my hair, made it look greasy. Might be ok when I where it curly but definitely not good for when I wear it straight.

          • Q:

            How long does the heat protection last? If I don't wash my hair for a few days and don't use this product between washings, will the protection still be there? Or should I apply something else on 2nd, 3rd, etc day?

              A:

              The R.A.W. Heat Styling Primer is only used on damp hair. You may want to try the Style Link Heat Buffer which provides heat protection and can be used on damp or dry hair prior to styling with heat
