    Comments about Matrix R.A.W. Color Care Shampoo:

    I received this product free for testing, but my review is honest! I love the smell of this shampoo and it definitely is good for my dry, bleached hair. It makes my hair feel smooth and lightweight. Because the bottle is purple, I was expecting it to be purple shampoo but it is not. That's okay, the quality was high! I might buy this product again, but there are other shampoos that I like equally as well as this one.

      Comments about Matrix R.A.W. Color Care Shampoo:

      I personally have a lot of natural oils so when I tried this shampoo it multiplied my oily hair. When I first used it my hair looked very greasy right out the shower & by the end of the day I had to shower again bcus it just got greasier. I love the smell but it's just not for me. I tested Biolage R.A.W for free, but all opinions are your own.

        Comments about Matrix R.A.W. Color Care Shampoo:

        I typically don't like shampoos with high lather, as they tend to dry out my fine, wavy hair and increase breakage and frizz. I was surprised to find that this product lathered well without those drawbacks. I loved the smell, and it feels luxurious to use. I tend to wash my hair every other day, mostly with a vinegar hair rinse or low lather shampoo, but I've started adding this into the rotation, especially when I blowdry my hair for work events, nights out, or special occasions. I tested Biolage R.A.W for free; all opinions are my own.

        Smells Amazing and Leaves my Hair soft

          I was my hair once a week so this bottle has lasted me well over 2 months. I received this item free to try out and review.

          If you use too much product it can feel heavy on the hair and give you the feeling of "Dirty" hair like you didnt wash it at all.

          Overall i love the way it smells and softens my hair as well as provides volume when i curl/style my hair.

          Typical shampoo

              Comments about Matrix R.A.W. Color Care Shampoo:

              I was able to try this product for free, for my honest opinion, and for the above price I don't see why it is so expensive. Maybe you have to pay for "natural" but I thought this was a typical shampoo. But maybe that is the point, that it has natural ingredients but works the same as shampoos with all the chemicals.

              Comments about Matrix R.A.W. Color Care Shampoo:

              I actually have always loved Biolage by Matrix and occasionally go back to that line in between trying out new ones. However, I really wanted to like this RAW line, but I just couldn't. Does not make my hair fully clean, and I would end up shampooing multiple times. I think that my hair is too thick. Someone who has thinner hair might have great results with this product.

                  The first couple of times I used this it was great. My hair was soft. It smelled great! But after that I ended up with really strange buildup in my hair that almost felt clay-like in texture.

                  I received this for free, but all opinions are my own and honest.

                      Didn't lather well at all. Left hair feeling stripped in a way and it isn't moisturizing whatsoever.

                              R.A.W. Color Care Shampoo is not considered a "purple" shampoo to help reduce unwanted brassy tones in blonde hair. It is formulated to provide the nourishment that color treated hair needs. Follow with R.A.W. Color Care Conditioner.
