I’ve always had fairly long hair, aside from a botched haircut circa 2013 that I would prefer not to repeat I love my length, but I’m not a fan of the extra knots and tangles that come along with it. So when Matrix sent me a complimentary sample of the Matrix Total Results High Amplify Shine Rinse Lamellar Treatment, its new detangling and conditioning treatment that promises silky, shiny hair in eight seconds flat, I knew I had to give it a go. Here, I’m sharing how this easy-to-use product has revolutionized my hair routine because, yes, it’s that good. 

The Benefits of the Matrix Total Results High Amplify Shine Rinse Lamellar Treatment

This treatment, which uses lamellar technology, acts as a shine-booster for hair. It has a water-like consistency and weightless formula that works to detangle and add shine in only eight seconds. The product, which gets dispensed through a targeted nozzle, can be used as a conditioner substitute, especially for fine hair. If hair is on the thicker side, the shine rinse can be incorporated as an additional treatment between shampoo and conditioner. 

My Review of the Matrix Total Results High Amplify Shine Rinse Lamellar Treatment 

Hear me out: There’s nothing more annoying than working conditioner through hair. Not only do I end up tugging on my hair, but I also end up with shedding clumps. When I tell you that this product completely solved my issues, I promise I’m not exaggerating. 

After shampooing with the Matrix Total Results So Silver Shampoo and rinsing, I rung out any excess water with my hands. My hair was tangled and knotty, so I knew I would be giving this product a run for its money. The directions on the bottle instructed me to use anywhere from 10mL to 20mL (or one to two dashes) of product. I twisted the nozzle open and started to apply the product in zig-zag motions from the mid-lengths of my hair to the tips. I worked in sections until my hair was coated. 

As I massaged the ultra-lightweight liquid into my hair, I felt my knots disappear. I didn’t have to run my fingers through my hair either, instead, I  just worked the product in with my palms. My hair started to feel silky smooth in no time at all. I rinsed the treatment out after around eight seconds and was shocked by how tangle-free my hair was— even before conditioning. 

While I loved the product from the moment I tested it, I couldn’t wait to see if it would really give my hair a shiny finish once styled. After letting my hair air dry 80% of the way, I gave myself a DIY blowout and added a few curls with my go-to Sultra Bombshell Collection Curling Rod. When I looked in the mirror, my hair was the shiniest I’ve ever seen itI’m truly obsessed with this product.
