My Opinion on the Shampoo –
Matrix is one of my favourite brand for hair care and since I have curly hair, I have dry, damaged hair and split ends too. Matrix shampoos have helped me a lot in improving my hair texture and quality a lot and since past 4 years, I am using Matrix range on and off for my hair care routine. I love Loreal Absolute Repair too and will review that soon.
Now, coming to this Matrix Opti Care shampoo, I got a big bottle of 400 ml of this as I knew I won’t be disappointed and right I was!! Now, the bottle is almost over and so, I decided to review this so that others can also get benefitted. I have not got any chemical treatment done on my hair but due to the condition of my curly hair, I use repairing shampoos only which can tame frizz and smoothen my hair. This performs both for me. My hair feel more managed after the wash and Matrix Deep Smoothening conditioner session. I never do shampoo alone. I always combine the conditioner part , otherwise, my hair would never sit on my shoulders and would fly away everywhere 😉
This shampoo is white in colour and is creamy in texture. It is a little bit runny and not too thick. It lathers well and leaves the hair cleansed properly without giving the feeling of any buildups.
Matrix Opti Care shampoo come in an orange plastic bottle with a sturdy flip open cap. The bottle is travel friendly and doesn’t spill, no leakage.

Overall Rating –
I would say you can give it a try if you have got your hair chemically treated. It helps in making them smooth and straight and reduces frizz to some extent. Also, those, who have damaged hair or split ends like me can also give this a try. It will not reduce split ends but improves the texture of hair over time and split ends look less obvious.
