The hair mask comes in a bulky, round, plastic jar type-packaging with a screw-off lid. I wish it came in a tube and not a tub 😐 as I have to dig and scoop out the product.  It’s a big salon-size pack that I bought, not sure if they have small-sized packs in this.

I have been using this mask since about 2 months, like once/twice every week and I am still left with about 3/4th of this.

Matrix Biolage Fortetherapie Intensive Strengthening Masque:

I bought this particular hair mask as I have seen the salon people using this as a part of my hair spa session. Also, I have a lot of faith in Matrix’s Hair care range as their Ultra Hydrating shampoo has been my HG hair cleanser for long.

The masque comes in white colored, shiny, creamy formula. It has lotion-like consistency, neither very thick, nor too runny and it spreads easily.  I take about 2 teaspoons of this mask (for mid my length hair) and apply it evenly on towel-dried hair from roots to tips.  In the salon, I have seen that they cover the head with a shower cap after applying this and I do that too. This enables moisture to penetrate deep into the roots.  I keep it for 10-15 minutes and then wash it off.

This mask makes my hair extremely soft, smooth, shiny and thus makes me love my hair 😀 I love its fragrance too, which is very pleasant and refreshing.

I apply henna once every month and I keep it for at least 3-4 hours, which makes my hair extremely dry, but whenever I apply this mask after washing off the henna, my hair looks great and there is no sign of dryness at all. I cannot comment whether it works on/controls frizz as I don’t have frizzy hair.

I have been using this mask 1-2 times a week for the past 2 months and have noticed reduction in split ends. I have stopped using any conditioner and just use Matrix hydrating shampoo and this mask. I don’t see that it gives any volume to my hair but it won’t weigh them down either, which is great in my opinion.

Overall, it’s a great product and I would recommend this to you if you have dry, dull, damaged hair and also if you color your hair or apply henna.

Pros of Matrix Biolage Fortetherapie Intensive Strengthening Masque:

  • Soft, creamy formula.
  • Spreads easily on the hair.
  • Makes hair soft, smooth and shiny.
  • With continued usage, reduces split ends and repairs damaged hair.
  • Has a pleasant fragrance.
  • Does not weigh down my hair.
  • Only a little quantity is required for one application.
  • One tub will last for long, which justifies the price.

Cons of Matrix Biolage Fortetherapie Intensive Strengthening Masque:

  • Matrix products are sparsely distributed in India.
  • Bulky, tub/jar type packaging.
  • Contains parabens.

  8. Super review, Nupur! 😀 I love Matrix shampoo and conditioner and was wondering if they had any masques or something. Till now, I ws “kaam-chalao-ing” with that L’Oreal Total Repair 5 one. :silly: Thankee for letting us know about Matrix. :woot: :woot: I’m going to march to my parlour and buy this asap. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

            1. Oh! That shampoo and conditioner never suited me. :yuck: Always made my hair dry. :headbang: I like the serum though and used it when my Biotique serum was out of stock. :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

  12. Hi guys, I’m sorry to ask this in the wrong place but I’m getting this error whenever I try to select L’occitane in the “select category”.. Just thought of asking u all what to do ?:)
    “Catchable fatal error: Object of class WP_Error could not be converted to string in /home/ratis/public_html/wp-content/themes/thesis_18/lib/classes/head.php on line 274”

  13. i use matrix ka serum and i have used their shampoo in the past….lovvveee them !!never tried their mask
    one ques- i am using liss ultime and dove ka hair mask as conditioners since long…can i use it as a conditioner only post washing?(like at the ends,kept for 3-4 mins and rinsed off) more ques- when you say you use it as a hair mask,is it supposed to be applied at the roots as well? :hypnotized: :hypnotized:

    1. thats exactly what i do with liss ultimate Shaili and it works very well like that. the way I use the hair masque from loreal – total repair 5 is that i use it mostly on the roots and leave it for abt 10 mins and then shampoo and condition as usual. I use the liss ultimate once a week.

      1. yeah..even on the dabba of liss ultime its written that it should be kept for 3-4 mins..but haan using a mask straight on the roots kinda scare me as i am having an oily scalp

    2. Aruna has answered ur query Shaili 🙂
      thnku Aruna :victory2: :victory2:
      in the salon i see thy do apply Mask from the roots to the ends, n I follow the same :victory2:
      its not like u have to massage it in like aoil, just apply it :victory2: :victory2:

  14. Nice & detailed review Nupur..happy to get enlightened @ this product.. :thanks: I to ekdum am in lurrrvveeee with Matrix Biolage Smoothing Serum.. leaves my hair edible-y adorable.. :pigtail: Very affordable & lasts for ages..only issue is availability.. :headbang:
