THE FACTS: Matrix is a leading professional hair care and colour company within Australia that offers a wide range of professional hair care, hair colour and hair texturing solutions to meet each and every person’s hair care requirements. Its Biolage range of products is specially formulated with completely natural botanicals which work with modern technology to bring out the natural beauty of everyone’s hair. They have recently introduced two new innovative thermal-active products into their collection, specially formulated heat-active stylers that protect and repair hair during the heat styling process.
THE REVIEW: As a girl with thick, wavy and uncontrollable hair I am utterly and completely obsessed with my hair dryer and hair straightner, using them both every morning, before even contemplating walking out the front door. My hairdresser had introduced me to the Matrix range of shampoos and conditioners and I have since become an avid user of these, however I had not yet decided to branch out into their other haircare products. Yet, I most definitely will after trying these products. I used both the Thermal Active Repair Cream and Thermal Active Repair Gloss, as I was not sure what the difference was, and noticed a difference in my hair from the very beginning. My hair dried more smooth and controllable, with less fizz compared to normal. Whereas normally my straightner fights with my hair to get it as silky smooth as I like it, after using this product it simply glided through, straightening my hair with ease. Lots of people complimented my hair – which I loved! – but more importantly, it felt amazing all day, running my fingers through such smooth, softer and shiny hair. I will definitely be continuing to use these products, they are amazing.
