Matrix: Sugar Shine System

This is our first set of experiences involving the Biolage branch of Matrix.  This collection utilizes sugar as the benefits include three times the shine, brilliance, moisturization and and replenishment.  We like it.  The smell, the design of this collection and the end results?  Per-fect. 

The collection arrived in a lovely pink box, with a pink bow and pink tissue paper.  It was just almost a media kit, designed as a beautiful gift.  Just for Ginae Says! 

Matrix: Sugar Shine SystemReceived (Sugar Shine System):

  • (1) Conditioner SRP $18.00
  • (1) Shampoo SRP $17.00
  • (1) Polishing Hair Scrub SRP $20.00
  • (1) Cookie (Sugar, of course)


On the norm, your brown-tressed reviewer does not use conditioner as she simply does not need it.  However, we do use it for reviewing purposes.  The Biolage SugarShine conditioner moisturizes and nourishes.  It is silicone and paraben-free and therefore perfect for color-treated or non-color-treated hair.


The aroma is slightly sweet with tangible sugar crystals. It's just delightful.  There is also a slightly soapy clean aroma.

Polishing Hair Scrub

This is a before-shampooing treatment which immediately begins scrubbing away residuals and revitalizing via humectants.  It's a polish, which, leaves a 48-hour shine.  It has no heaviness.

Matrix can be purchased at select salons and online outlets.
