Do the words shine, volume, bounce excite you while you are checking out hair care stuff? I get crazy and do not even bother to look at the ingredients. Same happened with this product and that is how it got added to my overflowing stash of hair care products. Read on to know how it fared for my normal to dry (sometimes frizzy) hair…

My experience Matrix Opti-Black Professional Shine Enhance Serum :
The serum comes in a simple plastic bottle with black tint. The plastic is sturdy and the clumsy me dropped it quite a few times but it did not crack, thankfully. The pump is functional and you can control the amount of the product dispensed each time. There is a simple plastic cap which protects the pump and thus can be carried along in trips. The details regarding the product are mentioned on the bottle.

The consistency of the serum is just right, neither too thick, nor too thin. It spreads well on damp hair and does not feel oily or slippery. After application there is no residue on the palms that you have to wash off. The serum is well absorbed by the hair. The quantity required is slightly more than the thicker versions but it depends on how thirsty your hair is. If you have properly nourished hair which is prone to oiliness you can go on with 3-4 pumps maximum. My ever frizzy hair wants more, so for my shoulder length hair I need7-8 pumps.
There is a beautiful salon-like smell to the serum which I absolutely love. The sad part is the smell does not stay for long. As the hair dries, the smell vanishes. I would have loved if the smell stayed longer. Not a con exactly but who does not like good smelling hair!

The effectiveness of the serum is average I would say. Not that I expected it to give “dazzling shine” but a bit more on the shine part would have been appreciated. It works like a normal everyday serum, easily detangling hair and giving smoothness to the tresses. Considering the claims made I was expecting a bit more, but it is okay as an everyday good smelling pamper to the hair.
