Most Helpful Positive Review Great product if you don't have a sense of smell!
I am so torn with this product. Due to over processing my hair had become pretty lack luster and I was hoping to find something that would bring it back to life. I gave 4 stars because this product really did add shine and give a fresh feel to my hair that I haven't seen in a while. HOWEVER... anyone saying it smells great is straight up lying. The smell is comparable to how I would imagine "Carnies" smell. A horrendous combination of animal pee and cotton candy. I have tried to mask it with other styling products but it's impossible. When I get in the shower it reactivates and there I go imagining life on the road shoveling elephant dung and eating sugar :D Anyway, if the people in your life, love you they will stick around despite the smell however don't use this product if you are looking for love with someone who lives in a house without wheels.
Most Helpful Critical Review What was Biolage thinking!?
This stuff smells horrendous! I have been using Biolage shampoo and conditioner for years and have always loved their clean scents and how well their products work on my hair. So I saw this on sale at ulta and decided to get it (without thinking to smell it before buying it) and once I got it home my mom actually tried it first and told me that I needed to take it back ASAP. I went to smell it myself, the shampoo was very musky with a slight flower scent; but then once I got to the conditioner....I couldn't believe what I was smelling. It literally smells like a hospice house mixed with dirty musky toxins. I immediately returned it to ulta; and before I even said ANYTHING a girl who worked their smelled it and said "wow eww. Smells like a rest home." Yeah...it's pretty bad.

Unfortunately this shampoo/conditioner combo didn't work for me. My hair is long, wavy/frizzy and combination (oily at the roots, dry at the ends). I had hoped this would balance my hair and boost its shine, but my hair dried completely flat and greasy at the root, looked lifeless, and the ends felt straw-like every time I used it. I also noticed more hair falling out and discontinued use after 2 weeks.
ADDS SO MUCH SHINE!
Liv H. from IL
I will say the smell isn't the best, its definitely not bad though - its just very sugary. The smell also is just so different than normal Matrix scents so I think that throws people off a bit. However, all of that is irrelevant because it adds so much shine and is so lightweight. I have thick hair so anything that doesn't add more weight is great for me. I feel like dry shampoo makes my hair so dull and this washes all of it away. Totally recommend.
Amazing Hair Days!
Maggie from Rockville, MD
This is my second purchase of this shampoo (and conditioner) because my daughter decided to use it, too. It works well for her fine, color treated hair as well as my medium textured grey hair.
The product works well, smells terrific, and there are fewer bottles cluttering my shower. An all-around win!
LOVE THE SCENT
Karina D. from California
It is a strong sweet smell, but I don't mind it . Keeps my hair smelling amazing all day and in between washes. My hair was super dull for awhile but as soon as I started using this shampoo+the sugar shine conditioner my hair is SO shiny. I have thin hair and this shampoo doesn't weigh my hair down it gives it the right amount of hydration. 10/10 recommend
Hair looks healthy again!
O. Carlson from Tulsa OK
My hair was extremely dry and damaged from heat and color. I've tried many other products and still my hair was dry and dull. I've been using this shampoo for a couple months now and my hair almost instantly improved. I use it along with the sugar conditioner or the hydrasource conditioner.
This is not the product I purchased

Love the Smell, Super SHINE super Rich Shampoo!
StormKat from Owasso, OK
I LOVE this shampoo. I could use it every day if I needed to and my hair has a great shine. My hair is damaged, heavily damaged and I have used Sugar shine Shampoo, Sugar Shine Conditioner and Sugar Shine Illuminating mist religiously. My hair is recovering nicely and I always get compliments on the shine.

Smells good, works good
I love this shampoo have used Biolage for a few years.

Not so Good
95Em from Gastonia, NC
I've used matrix biolage shampoos before but was highly disappointed in this product. I have never used a shampoo that made my hair so oily. With any other shampoo and conditioner, I could go 3 or so days with our washing my hair, but with this one, I felt like I haven't washed my hair in weeks. I'm not sure why it was so oily for my hair-but I'll never purchase this again! Also, it doesn't smell so pleasant.
Here's the deal...
Linsey from Phoenix, AZ
Alright, I honestly have been using this exact product and the same conditioner for at least two years now. I use it in addition to a hair mask every time I wash and my hair is so soft. People always compliment my hair and how soft it is, so this stuff really does the trick. My hairdresser actually turned me on to this product.
That being said, the scent is definitely a hit or miss. I actually love the scent, and I've actually grown fond of it after all these years. Other people who have used it say they can't stand the scent. If you've never tried this before, I wouldn't recommend buying it online. Smell it first and see if it's something you don't mind. It really is a great product and if you don't mind the smell it'll really do great things for your hair.
Love this shampoo
Amber from Texas
I really love this shampoo, the smell reminds me of Lush! It lathers well, cleans well, and leaves my hair light and shiny. I have thin hair that typically greases easily every day, but I find I only need to wash every other day with this. The fragrance lasts all day, which isn't too common in other shampoos I've tried. If you want shinier, healthier, and more voluminous hair, give this one a shot!
Decent but not as good as expected
Dana from Birmingham Alabama
Love the Smell, Super SHINE super Rich Shampoo!
Kathryn from Tulsa Oklahoma
Best Shampoo I have found for SHINE, period. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND the comments about the smell. This product, along with the conditioner and the Sugar Shine Illuminating mist smell AMAZING. These products do not weight your hair down...honestly everything about it reminds me when my hair was youthful and vibrant. I use these almost every day, but have gone 3 days and hair still looks amazing. My Husband even likes how his hair has volume. Be sure to leave conditioner in for 2 minutes or more...the longer it is in the more wonderful it is. 5 STARS all around!
Wendy from Tampa, FL
The main reason I love Sugar Shine Shampoo is because the smell is absolutely intoxicating! I have a very sensitive nose and if something is too strong smelling or too perfumey I simply can't tolerate it in the shower or having to smell it all day long. This shampoo does not leave my hair feeling soft since it is the type that provides a deep clean. So, the smell and the fact that this is good for the health of my hair are the main attractions to this product.
cs from St Chuck
I love how soft my hair feels.
Kairi from CA
Absolutely love this shampoo/conditioner. Leaves my hair soft and shiny. Also it smells good. As for the negative comments on the scent. Its subjective.
Can't stop touching my hair!
Juju from Akron, oh
My friend recommended this to me and I'm so glad she did! This shampoo and conditioner is amazing! Made my hair feel so soft! I don't need any other hair products. And I LOVE the smell of it.
Soft, super shiny hair!
Mrs.Goose from Michigan
Recently bought this shampoo and conditioner since the jumbo bottles were on sale. Always used volumizing shampoos, but loved that this said it was good for normal and color treated hair. Absolutely glad I bought it! Love the scent and my hair has never been so shiny just from washing it. Also adds volume and my hair is super soft. absolutely love it.
Konar S from Norman OK
Do not like this product, leaves hair oily. May return
Not a good product.
Disappointed with Sugar Shine. from Temple, Texas
Use this product, shampoo and conditioner you will find it has an awful scent. After using conditioner you will immediately know that it is NOT a good product in the line.
Love this stuff
Mar from Buffalo
The smell of this is delicious, it leaves my hair soft and shiny more manageable than ever.
I like it!
Hair product junkie from Midwest
I was afraid to try this because of all the bad smell comments, but I am so glad I did!! I think this has a nice sugary lemon smell. Left my hair super soft and my curls bouncy!
Rebeca from Salt Lake City
I love how healthy and shiny my hair looks.
BTS NAMJOON from Ohio
I really like this for my hair! I've been using it for about a year and a lot of people say it smells bad but a lot of people say it smells good it honestly just depends on the person in my opinion it smells fairly ok but not the most amazing thing I've ever smelled but it does make my hair very soft and fluffy and adds a bit of shine
