Matrix Split End Hair Serum Review

MATRIX Opti.Care Smooth Straight Split End Serum

The MATRIX Opti.Care range is basically meant for chemically straightened hair. Now,I didn’t know that when I bought this serum,I just liked the orange packaging and the nozzle especially makes it very apt for travelling considering the runny consistency of serums. I have naturally straight hair,so I thought may be this serum would help me tame down those fly aways and frizziness

My Experience : When I noticed it was actually meant for chemically straightened hair,I was devastated, I thought I had wasted my money and this product would be of no use to me. Nevertheless I did not give up and I decided to give it a try. And to my surprise it did not let me down. It worked greatly on my hair. I have been using it since then, my sister has used it, my mom has used it ,my roommate has used it, even my boyfriend has used it.Though I feel it works best for naturally straight hair,my roommate has curly hair and the serum did give a shine to her hair,but it couldn’t really define her curls nicely. Also, the consistency is very runny,it has to be handled with care. One thing that I noticed is it doesn’t really work that great when applied on dry hair as given in the instructions. Apply it after you have washed your hair and they are still wet,this makes the hair less greasy and more shiney .I have been wanting to get a straightener since a long time but i was resisting because of the heat damage that it might give because obviously once you get a straightener it is very hard to ignore it . This serum has been filling that void of a straightener for me in some ways, giving me a reason to stay away from a straightener.I love the shine it gives to my hair and once I brush my hair,they get like super straight.

Cons of MATRIX Opti.Care Smooth Straight Split End Serum

  • Does not do anything for split ends
  • There are lots of chemicals in it,I prefer using it only once in a week or something
  • Cant work for every hair type
  • I have noticed that whenever I use this serum,my scalp gets greasy pretty fast,2 days is the maximum I can go without washing my hair,the third day I HAVE to shampoo my hair .This is probably because I feel the serum attracts dirt more quickly
  • Using too much of the serum can again make your scalp very greasy

Will I repurchase it ?
Yes ! Defnitely,without a doubt
