BRITTNEY DISHES| MATRIX – Biolage

Like my skincare products, I like to keep my haircare products 100% natural, and by natural I mean all Shea Moisture everything! But, this week I received haircare products from the Matrix Biolage line as a gift and was eager to try them out. I was a little hesitant to use these products for the first time as a few of the products from the line were not completely natural and lacked the popularity and praise that other products had in the “Natural Hair Community”. Nonetheless, I was pretty impressed, by how well the products from the Coarse Hair Line worked for my hair type. They were able to restore moisture and softness to my thick, coarse natural hair.

Here’s the rundown:

MATRIX BIOLAGE – CONDITIONING BALM

PRODUCT CLAIMS:

  • Conditions and detangles while adding softness
  • Seals the cuticle to lock the moisture
  • Suitable for color-treated hair

MY THOUGHTS/REVIEWS: After cleansing with my normal Dr. Bronner’s Tea Tree Pure-Castile Liquid Soap, I applied the Matrix Biolage Conditioning balm directly on my wet hair. My curls were instantly shinier and more defined after applying the conditioning balm however, the product lacked slip and did not help my hair during the detangling process. Just a few days after using this product my hair looked and felt very dry and lack luster.

WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT ? No, I would not recommend this product for 4A natural hair.


MATRIX BIOLAGE – HYDRA SOURCE MASK

PRODUCT CLAIMS:

  •  Instantly deep conditions for healthy looking hair
  • Revives dry strands for more shine and manageability
  • Paraben-free formula is also suitable for color-treated hair

MY THOUGHTS/REVIEWS: After cleansing with my normal Dr. Bronner’s Tea Tree Pure-Castile Liquid Soap, I applied the Matrix Biolage Conditioning balm directly on my wet hair. As directed, I let the product sit in my hair for 5 minutes and covered with a shower cap for added moisture. After rinsing out the product my hair was noticeably shinier and softer. With the application of my whipped Shea Butter and Black Jamaican Castor Oil my hair was able to stay moisturized throughout the week.

WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT ? If you’re the girl who likes to switch things up in your routine from time to time then I would definitely recommend this product. It gets the job done and it is safe to use on occasion.


MATRIX BIOLAGE – WET BRUSH DETANGLING COMB

PRODUCT CLAIMS:

  • For thick, curly and straight
  • Perfect for men, women and kids
  • Works great on wet and dry hair!
  • Great for hair extensions and wigs

MY THOUGHTS/REVIEWS: I was really impressed by how well this comb detangled my hair when it was wet however, the results were not as good when detangling my hair dry.

WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT ? I would recommend this comb for wet detangling.


MATRIX BIOLAGE – CLEANSING CONDITIONER FOR COARSE HAIR

PRODUCT CLAIMS:

  • No Parabens, No Heavy Silicones, No Harsh Salts
  • Great for Coarse hair
  • Suitable for Color Treated Hair
  • Low-lathering
  • Fast-rinsing
  • Soap-free cleansing conditioner

MY THOUGHTS/REVIEWS: The Cleansing Conditioner for coarse hair is my favorite of all the Matrix products. Besides the obvious reason that the product line was specifically designed for women with coarse hair, the products successfully made my hair softer, shinier, and smoother. In addition to the AMAZING smell, this product made my hair much more manageable and gave it a noticeably healthier look and feel.

WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT ? Most Definitely


MATRIX BIOLAGE – LEAVE-IN TREATMENT SMOOTHING CREAM FOR COARSE HAIR

PRODUCT CLAIMS:

  • Helps to control frizz and static
  • Suitable for Color Treated Hair
  • Provides a smoothing layer for humidity control
  • Great for Coarse hair
  • Nourishes unruly strands

MY THOUGHTS/REVIEWS: The Leave-in treatment, like the cleansing conditioner worked very well for my hair. As the product claims, the leave-in treatment helped to control the frizz and static in my hair throughout the week and helped to keep my hair smooth during humid temperatures. My hair was softer and more manageable after the first use and not to mention the AMAZING smell which lasted throughout the week.

WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT ? Most Definitely
