Ingredients of Matrix Biolage moisture masque
: It has a very long list of long chemical names.
- As per the internet, Silk amino acids give the skin a very soft and velvety feel when used in a cosmetic product, and have some excellent water-binding properties i.e. they retain moisture. Hydrolyzed from pure silk fibers, silk amino acids have a lower molecular weight than silk protein powders and are penetrating and moisturizing to skin and hair. So basically they become a part of the hair(as far as I can understand).
- Wheat germ oil is extremely rich, unrefined oil. It is packed with vitamins D, A and E, and is rich in protein.
Lemongrass is extremely beneficial in healthy scalp care, stimulating healthy circulation and hair growth , preventing the development of bacteria, and alleviating skin/scalp rash and providing intense moisture to the hair.
- Sage: dandruff control
- Algae extract help in retaining moisture
My experience with Matrix Hydra Therapie Hydra-creme Intense Moisture Masque
I consider it a very very lucky day for my hair, when the salesman convinced me to buy this. Really ladies, this is the best thing I have ever got for my hair. It is a dream come true for dry hair. This masque is the easiest deep conditioning, you can do at home. Please bear with my going all excited about this. I have dry and curly hair which I got rebounded few months back. I have been using this masque since last year twice a month normally . It delivers everything it promises. I massage it for five minutes , all over the scalp and hair till root , then put on a plastic cap and wrap hot towel. Then rinse thoroughly after one hour or so. Or I massage it at night, cover with a plastic cap then go to sleep. In the morning, I take a little bit more and massage the scalp and then hot towel. The lady at the salon told me this method. Both of them work nicely.
What I liked about Matrix Hair Masque
- Light, creamy texture so easily spread and literally disappears in hair .
- Awesome fragrance. Mild floral. Lingers till I wash the hair next time (when I don’t shampoo)
- Easy to use.
- Reasonable price. It’s been almost an year and I have still some left.
- So many good natural ingredients like wheatgerm oil and botanical extracts of lemongrass, algae and sage.
- It totally moisturizes the hair, which was the main thing I wanted from it.
- Works like magic on hair. The hair becomes so soft, shiny (as you can see in the photograph), manageable and healthy.
What I did not like about Matrix Hair Masque
- Contains parabens
- Contains lots of chemicals which could seem a problem to some.
- Availability can be an issue since it’s either available at the matrix salons or very few stores.
- Comes in a tub so not hygienic. Though I don’t think putting so much product in a tube would have been feasible so basically they didn’t have any other option. But still….
Verdict: it’s a very good product. I have a certificate ahem…. Ahem….. Whenever I get a haircut or when I got rebounding done, every time the hair stylist says that I have very healthy hair. Though I should also tell you that I oil my hair regularly and use egg sometimes but still this is a product which gives results every time. So I am going to keep on giving my hair this treat.
Rating – 4/5( deducted one point for lot of chemicals )
