Rated 4.07 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Great at what it does, though not for everyone.
I love the smell of Biolage products so the fragrance is a plus for me. It's noticeable but not strong and doesn't linger. This product is excellent for making coarse, frizzy hair sleek and smooth and shiny. It gives me that slippery feel like you get after a salon blowout and it keeps my dry, damaged lengths and ends smooth and tangle-free. Cuts down on the need for a flat iron after a blowout. It's not for everyone nor for every situation, though. It only works on wet hair - if you spray it on dry hair it will make it clumpy and greasy-looking. I used it on my daughter's fine hair because it's a great detangler but it made her look greasy and stringy. It really deflates puffy hair so if you like volume and bounce this is not the product for you. But I love it for a straight blowout.
Most Helpful Critical Review Miss the old formula
I too want to reiterate the comment of other reviewers. I have used the old version for years. I have long thin colored hair. The OLD version was the only thing that wouldn't weigh it down, removed the tangles and kept it soft. The new version does nothing for my hair and I to will look for another brand to try.

Not at all impressed with the new formula! I had used the original for years and just loved it. When the new stuff came out my salon mentioned they won't be ordering it anymore because they weren't impressed. Well they were right! I wont be buying this anymore after using it for years. Why change a great product!! After coming here and reading the reviews I guess I'm not the only one who feels this way. So disappointing.
New Formula is Aweful
pbgotcurls from Baltimore, MD
I thought it was just me that something was off with the newly packaged smooth shine milk spray. Now I see they changed the formula, so disappointed. The old formula was my go to get the knots out of my very curly hair, now I'll have to look for a different product.
New formula is a huge disappointment
Karenzkarz from Toronto ON
I am a stylist who used Smoothing Shine Milk since it was first released about 15 years ago. I introduced many other stylists and clients to this wonderful product. Unfortunately Matrix decided to replace it with a far inferior product. I don't use the new product nor recommend it to anyone. Everyone that I speak to who has used the new product is not impressed and will not recommend or repurchase.
I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT THIS PRIDUCT
BUBBLES from FARMVILLE, NC
I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT THIS PRODUCT. IT MAKES MY HAIR SO SOFT
I look Great.
donnie from milwaukee
This Shine Milk works perfectly for my very straight hair. I can comb it in and my hair stays put until I want to shake it out. Leaves my hair shiny and with some bend due to letting it dry combed in place. I would cut off my hair if this didn't exist.
Heather marie22 from Virginia
I used the old smoothing shine milk for YEARS and it was amazing. Why do you people have to ruin great products? Instead of changing an existing product that works, come out with a new product with the garbage formula that you were going to replace the old one with, and see that it doesn't sell. Seriously it is so sad and upsetting that people get paid so much money to ruin great products. Just bring back the old formula and we'll pretend like this never happened.

I used to use this years ago back when the packaging was blue because my aunt gave me a couple bottles after she retired from being stylist. When I finally needed to buy more, I couldn't find it for the life of me. I don't if it was discontinued for a while or because of the changes in packaging and tweaking of the product name but I finally found it again.
My hair is fine and frizzy and this just works miracles. Normally I'll straighten my hair because the frizz can't be tamed any other way but with this, I'm happy letting it air dry and do it's natural thing!
Ashley from Connecticut
Overall, this product is pretty good. I wash my hair every three or so days and I let it air dry at night, but the scent is amazing and I do notice my hair has a healthier shine. I paid it with the Biolage Hydrasource shampoo and conditioner.
Gets the Kinks Out!
Kinky Girl from Hollywood, CA
A hairstylist on a Hollywood TV show gave me this product to take home after teasing and spraying chemically relaxed hair that was growing out into type 4C, kinky coily hair. It instantly detangled the nape area, without the need for pulling or tugging with a comb. Works on 100% natural, coarse, frizzy hair. Lightweight and not greasy. Can't recommend highly enough.
Love love love this product!
Amy from Big Stone Gap, VA
I love this product! It detangles my curls and adds the right amount of moisture and shine so they aren't weighed down.
LOVE THIS, and will BUY AGAIN, and AGAIN, AND....
Mountain DeeDee from Rockville, VA
I ALWAYS use the Biolage Shine Milk AFTER I wash my hair, BEFORE I comb it out. It helps DETANGLE my WET hair!! I LOVE how my hair looks and feels with THIS product! I having been using this product for MORE THAN THREE (3) Years.
The OLD Smoothing Shine Milk
pasg from Columbus OH
THIS RATING IS FOR THE OLD SMOOTHING SHINE MILK, since I have to rate the product.I love the OLD Biolage Smoothing Shine Milk, but haven't found it in the stores for a long time. After reading the reviews of the new product, I won't be trying that. Please bring back the old formula--it was GREAT!!
Ashley from Michigan
I have shoulder length, wavy, thick hair and this works very nicely for me. I use it after I wash my hair and when my hair is still damp. Whether I blow dry my hair or let it air dry, using this product leaves my hair feeling super soft and minimizes frizz. It also smells really good! You really don't need a lot for it to work. If you use too much it'll probably weigh your hair down. The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is because it makes my bathroom tile floor SO SLIPPERY if any gets on it while spraying in my hair.

Not cruelty free...
ck from Mississippi
I love this product so much. I cant live without it. makes hair so shiny and silky like I've had an expensive treatment
I would not buy this product again
G from Dallas, TX
This does not help my frizzy wavy hair in any way, shape, or form. Complete waste of money, there is no benefit from this product other than the smell.
Love this stuff
AZ from CO
This makes my hairs fell and look great. It's light and makes hair shine.
Brandee from Dallas, Texas
I've used this for a few months now & really hate it. I want the old stuff back. The original made my hair nice and smooth & not frizzy. This makes my hair feel like I'm combing it with hair spray. My hair is frizzy & hard to control & I have long straight blonde hair. Really do not like this product. It is not the same product as the original. Bring back the original!
Az from Colorado
Very minimal hold, light, and makes my hair soft
Seemed amazing at first
Newmoon from Auburn ca
The first few weeks of using this I was almost not in shock with how soft and amazing my hair felt and how frizz free it looked but quickly realized I was developing a lot of build up. I clarified my hair and lo behold it was soooo incredibly dry. This product really did not agree with my normally very healthy hair
Kristine from San Dimas, CA
Like it, makes hair soft and feels hydrated.
This is my favorite product in the Biolage line.
Bubbles from Farmville, NC
I use this product on clean, damp hair.
Definitely buying again
Kayla the Minimalist from Rapid City, SD
I use this product every time I style my hair or to smooth out my natural wavy hair. It controls frizz and leaves my hair shiny and soft!
Mama T from Mentor, Ohio
Detangles after washing and helps control frizz. Softens without weighing down my hair.
Tamed the tangles
Montana from Michigan
Was looking all over for something to help keep my curly hair from tangling. Happened to come across this at my hair salon and feel in love. Not only does it make my hair extremely soft, it makes it shiny, and make it look even healthier than it already is! I will be repurchasing this FOREVER!
