PROM NIGHT MUST-HAVE : Luxury Hair Care for Prom Night with MATRIX

Hi there, my darlings! So, as many of you know, I work at a school and I think the most exciting even during Senior Year is Prom Night, which happens to be right around the corner (read : next month) for our school. This means, for those of you procrastinators, it's time to get a roll on things! Having gone to high school in India, I've never had a prom so I think that I'm more excited than the kids! But, if there's one thing I've realized, it's this : Prom Night is EXPENSIVE! With dresses and shoes and makeup and transportation, costs add up quickly. That's why I've decided, the next couple of weeks, I'm going to focus my energy on bringing you the best and the most affordable in the beauty world to help you make informed choices. First up, let's start off with hair care and the brand-new Volume Rose collection from Matrix.

What's this collection all about then? Here's a little bit about it  and the products that make up this collection :

Volumizing hair care products. Fine hair women can finally have it all: lightweight nourishment and up to 78% more volume.*


Matrix Oil Wonders Volume Rose Pre-Shampoo Treatment Oil provides dedicated nourishment to damaged strands. It also helps reduce breakage for fine hair. Matrix Oil Wonders Volume Rose Pre-Shampoo Treatment Oil strengthens and reinforces hair fiber from root to tip. This treatment oil attaches only to damaged areas of hair to ensure zero added weight, and fine diameter strands are strengthened root-to-tip.

I usually hate oiling my hair. And I mean, really loathe it. It takes me back to my teenage years when we looked down with disdain upon anyone, boy or girl, gauche enough to actually go out in public with oil (usually coconut) in their hair. Petty, I know, but I still don't like the smell of coconut oil to this day. So, it's not with a little trepidation that I approached this one. But, let me just tell you, one whiff of this luxurious floral bouquet and I forgot all my reservations! I love the fact that it's more of a dry oil, so you're not standing in the shower for ages with a greasy head of hair. Just 5 mins before you shampoo and you're done! I concentrated on my ends, which always can use a little extra moisture, and proceeded on my merry way, those brittle ends already feeling better, softer, less ragged.


Lightweight OIL WONDERS VOLUME ROSE silicone-free Shampoo for Volume, infused with delicate Rose Hip Oil, primes hair by removing buildup and delicately cleansing each strand, to help provide softness and shine.

I've mentioned this before but my first test of a shampoo is always how well it lathers. Because if I'm going to take the trouble to wash all this mass of hair I have, I want to make sure I get it good and clean. And this shampoo passed the test with flying colors! It lathers and really cleans, without leaving my hair feeling stripped or raw.

The conditioner is the icing on the cake, really. I have to admit that I often skip conditioner, preferring to use a leave-in treatment because...well, because I'm lazy. You try to mess with waist-length hair! I love my hair but it is a challenge to maintain. But I didn't hesitate for a second with this one. Luscious and creamy, with the same alluring scent as the oil and shampoo, this conditioner is a treat for the hair AND the senses!

Mousses. I hardly EVER use them. Because my hair, particularly my scalp tends to get greasy really quickly and I really don't need a sticky styling product to add to that. But, I bit the bullet and tried this. Yes, it's a bit sticky at first but once my hair had dried in the morning, there wasn't a single trace of stickiness! Very pleasantly surprised! And here I'm going to wax eloquent about the fragrance again...they really should bottle this. I mean, they do but I would buy this as a perfume in a heartbeat! I kept smelling my hair all live long day and when the sun warmed my hair the next morning, let me just say it's truly a divine experience. I'm saving these for a special night out but this entire line is really that special!

So, I skipped the finishing spray the first night, because I air-dried my hair as per my usual test of a new haircare product(s). But, the next day, I ran my hot air brush styler through my hair to give it a few more soft waves and set them with this finishing spray. Again, so happily surprised by how lightweight it is! Hairspray can leave a tacky residue, much like mousses, and often leave the hair stiff. But I'm happy to report that my hair felt soft and clean, with much less frizz and static with this one. Huge thumbs up from me!

Final thoughts : this is a truly fantastic line! If you love floral scents, you're going to swoon over this one! But, more importantly this line makes my hair feel so good! Soft, with mega volume but much less frizz, it's manageable and just gorgeous after use. And don't let the "For Fine Hair" tagline deter you! I have MASSES of hair and I absolutely love this line! With a surprisingly affordable price range, it's safe to say I'm hooked!

  7. This sounds like a really great collection! I haven't tried anything from Matrix in a very, very long time!

  9. Packaging looks great... but I'm a coconut oil gal, use it in my hair daily and thank it each day for what it has done to my crazy hair... I'm not too much of a fan of floral scents, I have my favorites... but not sure if I would like this. Though, I would totally try it because it sounds and looks so luxe.

  10. Sounds lovely! The packaging is beautiful, too! <3

  11. Thinning hair men, or baldness, while considered a source of fun and amusement to the unaffected, can have damaging effects on the lifestyle of sufferers. Thin hair men often lose a lot of confidence and self esteem. Just the thought of losing hair is enough to cause people to lose sleep at night.
