De Frizz Wonder
This hair mask is deliciously rich, with a thick, creamy texture that virtually melts into the hair shaft. The screw top lid is easy to negotiate in the shower, and allows you to grab out a goop according to how much hair you're packing. In my case, it's quite a lot, as my hair is very thick, curly and long. Texture wise, it sits easily in your palm and doesn't drip, which is a boon in wet environments, and is easy to slide between your palms before applying to the hair. I usually turn off the shower after shampooing, and take the time to apply whilst the water is not running, then comb through with a wide toothed comb. Done, unless I pop on a shower cap for deeper penetration of the product.
As is usual with all Matrix Biolage products, the smell is heavenly....a soft, botanic aroma, non offensive, and gentle on the nose. There is a relaxing quality, especially with this mask, as it sets to work, and you need surprisingly little for it to be effective, so the jar lasts quite a while.
I use this mask at LEAST once a week, especially when the weather is signalling 'Frizzy Day Ahead' warnings!! It's a great first step in keeping my curls smooth, and continues it's effects over time, leaving me with bounce, but not excessive volume (poodles need not apply).
PROS: De frizzing action that is immediate, and improves over time. Bounce in your curls, without added volume. Great moisture retention, and botanic ingredients. A jar lasts, so is cost effective.
CONS: I'd like to be able to purchase in a litre size and use it every day!
Totally recommended for anyone with thick, unruly, frizzy, dry and curly manes, but not so good, I would imagine, for those with fine or greasy scalps. It's rich!
