Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been talking about some of my best beauty finds like Dr. Teal’s Avocado Epsom Salts and Colleen Rothschild’s Radiant Cleansing Balm. Today I want to talk about hair and tell you about something I’ve been using that I find works. It’s called Matrix Biolage Blue Agave Smoothing Shine Milk. (Now that’s a mouthful!)
I have straight, fine hair and I’m lucky to have a pretty good amount of it. The only problem is as I’ve aged I’ve noticed it has gotten frizzy if I don’t blow dry it right away. Even then, it can look scorched and dull if I don’t apply something before I begin to blow. I’m always trying new things, and there are a couple of things I use regularly. The Blue Agave Smoothing Shine Milk is one of them.
I can see they call it milk because that is what it looks like. It’s like thin, creamy white skim milk in a spray bottle, but it’s not sticky or goopy at all. I spray about six shots of it all over my wet hair, concentrating on the ends, then comb it through and then start to blow.
The result is smooth hair and a lovely shine that makes my hair look more vibrant and alive. I wouldn’t say it is a volumizer, and it doesn’t advertise itself to be. It’s just a lightweight mist that tames those fizzy ends and adds brilliance to my hair, which in turn makes me look much more fresh and youthful.
Does it work for everyone? My friend/ Pilates trainer Gabriela first introduced me to this when she handed her near full spray bottle over to me because she found the product made her hair too limp. Gabriela has very fine hair, and it’s thinning. I was skeptical it could work for me because my hair goes limp pretty quickly also, but I guess I have a good enough amount of hair to make it work.
What the blue agave is or does, I didn’t know, so I looked it up. On Google, it says Agave is “the same plant used to make tequila.” -LOL! It’s sweet and used on your hair the sugars in agave nectar draw water to the hair, so it acts as a hair taming humectant.
Hmm, No wonder it works and also smells so good!
Right now I’m using hold #1, but I see it comes in hold #2 and 3, so maybe I’ll bump up to #2 next time and see what the difference is. For now, I’m thrilled with this product just the way it is, and I just checked the internet where it seems to have very positive reviews too. Matrix Biolage Blue Agave Smoothing Shine Milk is a great hair beauty booster that is worth trying.
