Battle of the Leave-Ins – Matrix Edition

16 Dec

My hair stylist friend,  cares about my hair and supplies me with fun treatments to try.

For the past few weeks, I’ve been alternating between these two Matrix leave-in products.

My thoughts
I thought this was the most shine boosting leave-in I’ve used to date.
Tames frizz for a few days.
Lightweight.  It’s like air
I like the fragrance.  It made my hair smell nice for a full day.
I don’t think this is the best for detangling, so brush hair slowly to prevent breakage when it’s wet.
Doesn’t strip my color!
From the same line –

My thoughts
I honestly don’t see much difference between these two products.
I do think this was is slightly better for detangling.
I love the fragrance.
The Miracle 12 is more a treatment than just a leave-in or detangler, so on that basis I like that product better.
You can buy these on Amazon, Ulta, and beauty salons, Walgreens.  These run about $16.00 for a full size 5.1 Fl Oz.
Will I repurchase?
Of course!
Have you tried the Matrix Total Results line?  Do you have a favorite leave-in conditioner?
