I bought this masque from Matrix Biolage after finishing the big fat tub of Opti Black Shine Enhance Masque from the same brand. Matrix creates amazing hair care products and I wanted to give this new one a try. I do not really have hair breakage issues as my hair is pretty thick, but I don’t mind having a lot more stronger hair 😛 Read on further to know whether I loved Matrix Biolage Fiberstrong Bamboo Strengthening Masque or not.
740 INR for 490 gm.
This anti-hair fall masque is part of the salon exclusive Advanced BIOSPA treatment that helps in creating a structural reinforcement system to strengthen weakened hair cuticles.
My Experience with Matrix Biolage Fiberstrong Bamboo Strengthening Masque:
Like other masques from this brand, this one also comes in a very bulky, plastic tub packaging. It is not travel friendly at all and if you want to carry some while travelling, you will have to transfer a bit into a storage container. Also, tub packagings are unhygienic and messy to deal with. I will be happy if they come up with a tube packaging for these products.
The amount of product provided in the tub compared to the price is great. It has a very fresh fragrance. You will remember the old Clinic shampoo while using this product. The fragrance lasts on your hair for a day or two, which is indeed very refreshing.
This masque is a light, opaque, watery gel. It is not heavily creamy as the previous masque that I have used from Matrix. I think it is easier to use this one. It glides on the hair smoothly and spreads easily. I use it like a conditioner, that is avoiding the scalp. I love this formula over the thick, creamy ones.
I leave this masque on for 5-10 minutes and then wash my hair. My hair feels very silky, soft and smooth. The feel is pretty same for all Matrix hair masques I think. My hair gets detangled easily. However, as the product is creamy, you will have to wash your hair really well to make sure that it is washed away completely. The shine lasts even after the hair dries and it feels silky and smooth for really long.
I think this masque prevents hair tangles that cause hair breakage. I will have to use it for longer to see if this masque is making my hair stronger, but I faced a serious problem while using this masque and even the last one from the same brand. Applying the masque actually leads to hair fall while washing. I do not know if this is my fault or if there is something wrong with my application technique, but this actually stops me from using the product once a week, and I use it once or twice a month.

Would I Recommend Matrix Biolage Fiberstrong Bamboo Strengthening Masque?
You can if you are suffering from hair fall issues and this solves the problems. Personally I will prefer something which will give me the benefits this one gives without causing hairfall during application. So, I will keep searching for that product.
