I am reviewing the Matrix Biolage Ultra Hydrasource Aloe Hydrating Hair Mask here. It is a very cost effective hair mask when compared to the other TBS one I reviewed here and the Yves Rocher one reviewed here. So, are the results comparable? Read on to know that!!
Ingredients: Silicone-free (curly hair friendly)
It is silicone free and paraben free.
Rs.490 for 490mg

It has a thick creamy consistency.
You can see the consistency in the pic below:
First things first. The quantity of product when compared to the price is amazing! It comes in a HUGE tub. Looking at this tub gives immediate happiness to me!! 😀 Well who doesn’t like cost effective stuff!!
The consistency is creamy and spreads easily on hair. Even on dry hair it is easy to spread. But I prefer applying on damn hair. 3 scoops cover up my whole hair….Curlies with very dense hair might need more quantity.
Now comes the conditioning part. I like how it moisturizes and conditions hair without weighing it down and without making it greasy. It is definitely more conditioning than our usual rinse-off conditioners. On days when I feel that my hair needs that extra moisture and I am not up for doing a DIY hair treatment, I either apply this hair mask on its own or mix it with few drops of olive or coconut or gingelly oil and apply for 20-30mins. I always cover my hair with a shower cap or plastic cover. And I always love the results. So this hair mask gets a thumbs up from me!
It is easily to rinse it off. And gives hair a silky feel while washing…which indicates that hair is moisturized. After using this mask, we can easily skip our rinse off conditioner and hop on to the leave-in and styling product.
That said, please don’t expect miracles. This is a deep conditioner which works for one wash. Hair is moisturized but you still need to refresh your hair following day. Well deep conditioning keeps your hair healthy and moisturized and doesn’t really let you skip your styling products. 🙂
- Makes hair soft, moisturised and conditioned
- Doesn’t weigh hair down
- Quantity is huge
- Lasts a very long time
- Very cost effective
- CG friendly
- Refreshing hair is needed from the following day(though hair feels soft….it doesn’t control the frizz till next wash!)
- Not travel friendly since the tub is huge…well I still carry it along lol…
It is a very cost effective deep conditioning hair mask that makes hair soft and moisturized. Also is silicone free (i.e. CG friendly) so a definite yes to try this. Quick fix when you are particularly lazy to do a DIY. IF you are new to deep conditioning and dunno where to start…then this Curly Girl friendly hair mask would be the perfect thing to start with. This is silicone-free as well as paraben free!! 🙂
