Sometimes I feel lazy and don’t want to deep condition my hair but when I don’t, my curls look so dry and brittle. I have a few favorite deep conditioners and this is one of them. It’s Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Re-Hydrate Clay Mask. It’s made with shea butter and Moroccan lava clay, and leaves my hair feeling incredibly soft. The scent of it is light and earthy, which I like a lot. It gets a bonus like because it is 95% natural-origin, 99% biodegradable and housed in 100% recycled plastic.
After washing my hair, I scoop out the thick, creamy paste with my hands and apply it to my hair in sections. I then run a comb through my hair to ensure even coverage. I like to focus on putting a lot on my ends because it tends to be more dry and frizzy there. After 15-20 minutes, I rinse the conditioner out and always see an immediate difference in how conditioned my hair looks and how smooth it feels. I will be honest and say that I still follow-up with a leave-in conditioner, because I feel that it doesn’t provide a good amount hydration; therefore, I rotate this mask with others depending on my hair’s needs. For example, if my hair feels limp or tangled, I use this since it does a great job of softening and making my hair more manageable. If my hair is dry and frizzy, I reach for a more hydrating deep conditioner.
What I like about this brand is that, on their website, you can click on a product’s ingredients tab to learn about every single ingredient used, along with a definition of each, it’s purpose in the product and whether or not it’s man-made or natural. This is very important is me because a brand’s transparency is critical to gaining my trust. It also helps you make an informative decision about whether or not you wat to use the product.
