Matrix Hair Care
Biolage Color Care Shielding Shine Mist will make your tresses shine like a new penny but best of all, it smells terrific.
Matrix Hair is repsonsible for several hair care brands such as Vavoom, Biolage, Amplify, Color Smart and more.
I had the opportunity to try out the Shine Mist, Bodifying Creme Gel and Smoothing Gel. Long ago I used to wash my hair with Biolage and what I liked best about this line was the way the products smelled. Clean. The fragrance only slightly lingers so don't think you will have perfumey hair all day. Occasionally you will catch a pleasant whiff of the Biolage scent and strangers might come up to you on the street and smell your hair but that's what happens when you use Biolage.
The Shine Mist will allow your hair to look smooth without weighing it down. I only very slightly spray it on the crispy ends of my over processed hair to make my hair softer. The Bodifying Creme Gel comes from a little pump like a mousse, but is a creme. It gives the hair body without leaving a sticky residue. And it won't make your hair crispy either. The Smoothing Gel is a product I use on the ends of my hair to prepare my locks for the singe of the curling iron. The gel makes my hair a little straighter, again, nothing sticky. All in all, Biolage is fabulous, afforable, and is easy to find in many quality salons or online.
Vavoom products are insane! Yes you will have enormous hair. I tryed out the Volumizing Gel and the Finishing Spray for my beloved Jersey Girl coif-- big and fluffy and teased to the heavens. Use the gel sparingly or else you will have some hardened locks to contend with. A little goes along way with Vavoom! There is no overpowering smell to these items, slightly scented but not irritating.
The hairspray is a wee bit harsh if you aren't looking to lock your style into loaded position. I believe these products are for the diva who wants the big glamorous hairdo, not the au natural crunchy granola kind of gal.
When I want my hair to be as wide as the doorway, I use a bit of the Volumizing Gel- a little in my palms, and work it through damp hair. I blow it out with a huge round brush and then wrap hair in velcro rollers when it's not quite dry. I blast the blow dryer on each roller, spraying with the Finishing Spray, the key here is to do it with a light touch! Then I take the rollers out, spray the Biolage Shine Mist and finish with a bit more hairspray so thatmy tresses are as secure as a helmut. Out the door I go!
