Matrix Opti Care Smooth Straight Conditioner Review

On a recent trip to the market, I picked up the Matrix Opti Care Smooth Straight conditioner for my hair as I had been experiencing roughness and dryness. As my friend had raved about this conditioner so I decided to give this a chance.

Even though it is made of chemically treated hair, I decided to give it a try as this has Shea butter which is amazing for moisturization and that’s what my hair always needs.

My Experience with the Matrix Opti Care Smooth Straight Conditioner

Packaging- The conditioner comes in an orange tube packaging with a flip cap which seals the product quite well. The product is travel-friendly and hygienic to use as you don’t have to dip your hands in the product.

The product actually comes with a ton of packaging options- 98gm, 196gm, 100ml tubes and 1000ml bottle.

Fragrance- If you have ever visited a matrix outlet or any hairdresser which uses matrix product you will know the typical matrix fragrance, this product smells like that. For anyone who isn’t familiar with that fragrance, it is a quite pleasant and stays for a day post washing

Texture and Color- The conditioner has a white color with a thick consistency. Even though the conditioner has a thick consistency but it is very creamy in texture and spreads easily among the lengths of the hair.

Moisturization- This conditioner really gives my hair a boost of moisturization to my hair. It makes them hydrated and soft which helps by detangling the hair.

My Experience- I have fallen in love with this conditioner. I use it with my shampoo as any other conditioner and it has worked wonders for my hair. It makes it soft and smooth while actually detangling my very long hair. A plus, it has a very nice fragrance.
