Is Matrix Biolage Cleansing Conditioner for Me?

Have you been thinking about trying that “cleansing conditioner” everyone is talking about? I’m sure you have. It’s a strange concept, though, right? No shampooing? And my hair will be clean? Well, I was the number one skeptic. I don’t buy into the hype all product lines have with their promises. Really. I also always make sure I try the products we get in before I’ll sell them to my clients. So, when we got Matrix Biolage Cleansing Conditioner, I thought , great! Now I can try this without ordering online and signing up for automatic monthly shipments. I sat down with all the literature and the products and read all I could. Sounded interesting. It comes in four different formulas. Fine hair, Medium hair, Course hair and Curly hair. I had my hair “shampooed” with the Medium formula. Very little lather, but I was used to that after using Morrocan Oil shampoo for so long. Smelled good, too. I think we may have used too much just trying to get the same feeling as shampoo, but you won’t so just use the 3-5 pumps as suggested on the bottle. Wash twice if you feel you need it. It also suggests leaving it in for 5 minutes for the best results. My opinion? My hair felt very clean like after I’ve shampooed it and it blew out beautifully. I don’t use conditioner in my hair very often because I’ve always felt it made my hair lay flat. I’m a child of the 80’s. Big Hair? Yes, Please. This product did not make my hair lay flat. It didn’t even feel like I had condioner in it like so many conditioners do. The true test? The next morning could I get away with not washing my hair? Absolutely. Still looked and felt great. I like to only wash my hair about twice a week. I can definitely do that with Matrix Biolage Conditioning Cleanser. So will I recommend this to my clients? Yes, I will.
