This is probably a silly question…but don’t you just love a good hair day? I’m always on the hunt to find the best tools and products to ensure that I have as many good hair days as possible. I’m fortunate that part of my job as a blogger is to try out the latest and greatest in fashion, beauty, haircare, and more! This means, I don’t have to look hard to find new products to experiment with. While I can’t devote a post to each and every product I try, I like to talk about products that stand out to me. One of the lines that I’ve recently tried (and loved) is Matrix Biolage RAW. I’ve been using the shampoo and conditioner for a few weeks, so I’m sharing the details and a review. Scroll through for more!
the Matrix Biolage Raw collection
The Matrix Biolage RAW collection is a new, exciting addition to the natural beauty market. Traditional shampoo and conditioners contain sulfates, artificial colourants, cationic polymers and silicones. These are chemicals! When you think about it, doesn’t it seem a bit crazy to regularly put chemicals in your hair?
On the other hand, the Biolage RAW products contain up to 95% natural ingredients. If you go to the Matrix Biolage RAW website, you can learn more about the ingredients they use, as well as where they come from. I think that’s pretty neat!
The Matrix Biolage RAW collection is made up of three lines, to address different types of hair. For dull, dry hair, you can try Nourish, and for stressed, sensitized hair, you can try Recover. Since I have flat, fine hair, I’ve been using the Uplift shampoo and conditioner.
Uplift- For flat, fine hair:
The Uplift shampoo contains sesame seeds and grapefruit, to purify flat, fine hair without harsh stripping. The conditioner contains kiwi and kaolin clay, which conditions, without added weight. Thanks to these ingredients, they also smell amazing! I tend to wash my hair at night, sleep with it in a bun, and blow dry the next morning. I’ve noticed that when I take my hair out of the wet bun, I can still smell the shampoo and conditioner. For me, that’s a positive quality, but I know that not everyone is a fan of strong scents. If you prefer a more mild fragrance, this may not be the best shampoo and conditioner for you.
If you’ve tried other natural shampoos before, you may have found that they don’t lather well. One of the reasons I love the Matrix Biolage RAW shampoo is because it does. Granted, it doesn’t lather as much as some of the more traditional options out there, but it holds its own. I like my shampoo to lather, so it feels like it’s doing its job to clean my hair. Does that make sense? As gross as it sounds, I only wash my hair 2-3 times a week, so it can get quite greasy. The Matrix Biolage RAW shampoo and conditioner manages to get rid of the grease, and leaves my hair feeling clean and fresh.
I’d love to say that my hair has doubled in volume, but sadly, it’s not magic. What I can say is that my hair is silky and smooth and holds the beachy waves that I add with my curling wand.
All and all, I’ve been very happy with the Matrix Biolage RAW products that I’ve been using, from the Uplift collection. If you’re looking to try out a natural hair care line, this may be it! I also happen to love the packaging! It’s eco-friendly (up to 99% biodegradable) and offers the added bonus of being adorable.
You can purchase the Matrix Biolage RAW products at Matrix Salons. You can use the Matrix Salon Locator to one one near you.
I received the Matrix Biolage RAW shampoo and conditioner as PR samples, but this post isn’t at all sponsored. I wasn’t required to post a review, but chose to because I really like them and have been using them on a regular basis.
Have you tried any natural hair products? Have they worked for you?
