Matrix Opti.Care Smoothing Shampoo : Review

Nowadays, hair straightening and rebonding are increasingly popular trend with Indian women and the trend doesn't seem to be dying down! Women with thick and frizzy hair with a lot of volume need straightening / rebonding which is an easy way to control that volume while wearing a straight chic and sophisticated look.

About Matrix

The Opti.care’s range of professional hair care for straightened hair includes :
  • Smoothing Shampoo
  • Smoothing Conditioner  
  • Intense Smoothing Mask 
  • Split End Serum  

I got it's Smoothing Shampoo >
The shampoo gently cleanses and moisturizes the hair. Infused with Silk amino acids and Shea butter, it softens texture, tames frizz, improves manageability and adds shine.

What it Claims : Opti.care is a professional haircare line formulated to help control and smooth chemically straightened hair. Its intense formulas blend ingredients like Shea butter, Silk amino acids and Apricot kernel oil to help CONDITION hair, REPAIR damage and SMOOTH frizz for healthy, sleek hair with hi-gloss shine. 

Price : INR 260 /- for 200 ml.

It has flip cap for easy use -

* It's creamy white and has a smell of guava.

Likes :

  • Really like the orange packaging. :)
  • It has pleasant smell of Guava. My bathroom filled with its smell when I took shower.
  • It's a smoothing shampoo which does its work and tames frizzy hair without greasing my scalp or hair.
  • My hairs are already straight so can't say that it straightens my hair.

Dislikes :

  • Pricey. Nothing else.

I found this a good shampoo for all types of hair not only for straightened hair.
