Friday Finds (review + giveaway): Matrix hair products
Recently, Matrix (a division of L’Oréal) sponsored Mercedes Benz Fashion Week’s “Strut: The Fashionable Mom Show”. Backstage, the Matrix hair product team gave a few lucky moms a whole new look, transforming straight hair into voluminous curls. My Friday Find this week is the set of Matrix hair products used in this runway-worthy makeover: the Silk Wonder Smoothing Oil, the Design Pulse Mega Dust, and the Total Results Curl Super DeFrizzer.
Since I just cut my hair in a really short do, a certain 9 year-old was more than eager to volunteer as my model. Between you and me, her hair is much, much nicer than mine. Look at all those natural highlights! Mine are totally man-made
Matrix glam hair product set, runway-worthy makeover in minutes
The Fashion Week team was led by Matrix Artistic Designer, Robert Santana who said, “We’re here to help create individuality and beautiful hair because that’s what Matrix is really all about – beautiful hair and making moms feel great in their own skin.” That was easy to achieve with their three secret weapons, the glam hair set of: the Silk Wonder Smoothing Oil, the Design Pulse Mega Dust, and the Total Results Curl Super DeFrizzer.
Wanna see how easy-peasy it is to go from blah to glam in minutes? (Note: we only glammed up a small section of Emily’s hair, but you get the gist of it)
Matrix glam hair products in action
Step 1: Prep hair with the Matrix Silk Wonder Smoothing Oil to add shine. It repairs frizzy hair, split ends, heat-damaged and swollen cuticles for a smoother hair.
Step 2: Curl hair with curling iron, set hair in pins to cool.
Step 3: Once cool, take hair out of pins and apply the Matrix Design Pulse Mega Dust throughout the curls. It’s a very fine dust that vanishes in your hair but gives it the ultimate lift. Ideal for back-combing and no-slip up-dos, it’s easy to use, traps products in and gives fine hair some righteous volume.
Step 4: Apply the Matrix Total Results Curl Super DeFrizzer to smooth out curls. It uses the Anti-Frizz Nutri-Curl Technology™ with jojoba oil and wheat protein, which is a fancy way of saying that it takes the stubborn frizz out of curls and gives you rounded, well-formed curls.
Step 5: Back comb the curls with your fingers. And ta-da! Glam hair in minutes, literally.
Matrix, the producers of hair awesomeness
One of the coolest parts of being a blogger is being privy to new products, sometimes even before they hit the market. I was a fan of L’Oréal before I found out about Matrix, now I’m a huge fan! The Matrix hair products delivered on their glam look, as promised. The best part of being a blogger? Bar-none, hands-down, no contest… scoring cool points with my 9-year-old!
