To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The water here is hard and tends to leave orange stains on porcelain etc. and my silver/white hair would look dull and brassy. I've tried everything as the saying goes but found that most of the products for grey hair just add purple - they don't lighten up the hard water deposits. I put a filter system on my shower which helped a lot but still there was the problem of brightening up my hair. The Matrix So Silver has done the best job yet. Even better than ones I've paid 5 times the amount for. I use the shampoo and conditioner and both seem to work fine for me. I think that only the shampoo actually deposits color on your hair and not the conditioner. I plan to continue to use it and if you're having a similar problem try it!
I wouldn't buy this again. If you read the label closely, the companion shampoo is for color-correction (to neutralize brassiness) but the conditioner is for hydration only. I thought the conditioner, being purple, would be color-neutralizing too. Since it's not, and since it has a very strong perfumey fragrance that I don't really like, and since it doesn't hydrate my hair particularly well, I'd rather spend less on a cheaper conditioner that works better.
I bought the shampoo and conditioner and have used it 3 times. So far no change. I’ve tried leaving it my hair out of the shower too so it can sit a while. Nada. But it makes my hair smooth. That’s kinda nice. The messier bun is after the 3rd try. I’ll change my review if I see a change.
1) was uncomfortable that when you pop off the top, there was no safety seal/tab over the hole where the product comes out.
2) Weird scent and texture. The smell was not neutral or pleasant - like most Matrix products I've used in past. The texture of the conditioner seemed thin - again compared to other Matrix products I've tried.
My first impression was... is this the real stuff? I plan to buy same at my local Ulta to compare. In the meantime, am requesting a refund.
The lid was off of the conditioner. I have used this conditioner before and love it. When my gray starts to get dull I use this and the matching shampoo to revive my gray. It does not turn it pink, purple, or blue, just a very vibrant and shiny grayish/silver. I was very disappointed that the entire contents of the bottle had leaked out. Amazon was great and reimbursed my sale price. I will be reordering and hoping for a better experience.
I wasn’t expecting this to really do any toning to my gray hair. But I was expecting for it to act as a conditioner and give my hair softness and some shine. It did neither. I have cheaper brands that do a much better job.
I have always been a fan of the products to begin with pricewise it is a hit or miss I can typically get a cheaper at the supply warehouse. However at this point in time delivery has been quite convenient! Nice clean smell not overwhelming.
Perfect for my premature grey hair. I use this along with the purple shampoo. The conditioner has a soft lavender purple color. Together, my hair has never felt softer or looked brighter. I get compliments all the time on how healthy my looks
