Most Helpful Positive Review Good system for dry/damaged hair
I received this product complimentary for my honest review. I have dry, uncolored hair but I do heat style with a straightening iron two to three times a week. I started using the Matrix Total Results Re-Bond strength re-hab system a few weeks after my last haircut (so my hair was in pretty good shape with no split ends). Usually over a few months my ends start to split or feel drier (likely damage from heat styling), but after using this system for about two months, my hair feels as healthy as when I started. The system is similar to your usual shampoo/conditioner routine, except once a week you apply the pre-conditioner after rinsing off the shampoo, wait 5 minutes, then layer the conditioner on top. This weekly 3-step process was easy enough to follow and is unscented which I'm fine with. The shampoo seems to sufficiently clean buildup and the pre-conditioner and conditioner leave my hair smooth and tangle-free after rinsing. Once dried, my hair still has substance (as opposed to being dull and too lightweight) without feeling weighed down. I still have to use a separate hair oil to tame my frizz but honestly the result of using my usual hair oil with the Total Results Re-Bond system is smoother than I've experienced with some other shampoos/conditioners. My naturally wavy hair air dries smooth, shiny, and soft. Overall I'm happy with this system. Would I repurchase? Yes!
Most Helpful Critical Review After Testing the Products for Two Weeks
... I thought this Conditioner was just OK. I've certainly tested and used better. I received the trio of shampoo, pre-conditioner, and conditioner free of charge for testing purposes. I tend to have voluminous but dry hair that can get tangled pretty easily. My current regimen is Aussie Moist Shampoo with EVA NYC conditioner and that usually does the trick for me. I tested this regimen for two weeks with poor results, including an increase of tangles and dreadlocking in the hair at the nape of my neck, which I detest to no end. If I were not using the pre-conditioner, it would take me a long time to manually detangle all of the knots because my hair was drier and more brittle than usual. The shampoo in this set is not perfect but my expectations from conditioners are way higher. They should be able to restore any damage the shampoo may present, and I felt that the conditioner did not do its job at all. It really felt like I was using a placebo treatment for my hair.

This product actually made my hair worse. I used it once a week and after every use my hair would just rip right off. I stopped using it after the 3rd use because my hair couldn't take any more damage.
Great fragrance free option!!
J from Los Angeles
I am extremely sensitive to all fragrance. Hair products with fragrance makes my scalp and face really red, dry, and irritated. Fragrance free hair care is far and few between, and those few options usually don't give me the hydration and repair that my hair needs. But this is a game changer!!! A high quality conditioner that is fragrance free. If you are like me you need this.
Saved my hair!
Kirst from Livermore, CA
I have had hair and scalp issues for 10+ years. Nothing has helped me until my latest hairstylist highly recommended this shampoo / conditioner / pre- conditioner system.
I've been using this conditioner and the rest of the line for 2 years. The rebond conditioner has made my hair less frizzy, without straightening my wavy / curly hair. It has also helped the texture of my ends. After about two to three weeks, my hair no longer felt like hay. My hair still tends to break, but not nearly as bad as it used to. The amount of breakage differs from person to person. This with the addition of the pre-conditioner is a game-changer (I typically use the two together every other week).
Again, I've been using this for two years, and it is extremely beneficial.
Great strengthening shampoo
Paola from Seattle
Loved this shampoo it really strengthened my hair, was clean, free of any residues, and overall a great product

I used this product with the Total Results Re-Bond Pre-Conditioner and Total Results Re-Bond Shampoo. I have color treated hair that tends to be dry and get in knots frequently. During my time of use of these products my hair did feel a little smoother and it did not feel too weighed down or sticky as I have noticed some other products can leave my hair feeling filmy instead of actually healthier. These products did leave my hair feeling clean. I tested Matrix total results Re-Bond for free, but all opinions are my own.
Best if you're on a budget
Alyssa from NJ
My hair has been through a lot— bleached a ton of times and super damaged ends. This conditioner SAVED my hair!!! Very moisturizing and feels amazing in the shower. Olaplex is my holy grail but this works fine if you're on a budget! The only con I have is the lack of fragrance.
jennyfer227 from Huntsville, AL
Better than the shampoo, not as good as the pre-conditioner. Once again I hate the smell of all these products. My opinion of the product can be summed up as: It's conditioner. I would not buy this. Other systems give better results and don't make your hair smell like nothing. I tested this product for free in exchange for my honest opinion.
Does the job for fixing hair, not my fav conditioner
Tori, long hair DO care from Los Angeles
If you have severely damaged hair you should definitely use this trio of products. It really does the job of repairing from the inside out. However, I don't think the conditioner was moisturizing. It also does not smell the best, it's not a bad smell, but your not going to walk out of the shower with fresh smelling hair.
I tested Matrix total results Re-Bond for free, but this is my honest opinion.
Adding this to my favorites!
Lipstick queen from Ohio
The conditioner is by far the best product in the line! I enjoy how soft it makes my hair but also how light it feels. My hair never feels weighted down by product! This product is great
InfluensterGirl from San Jose, CA
Good conditioner, but not the best out there. I found it to be moisturizing, however not as moisturizing as competitors like L'Oréal or Redken. Also the bottle was extremely flimsy which I found frustrating. I dropped it once and the cap broke entirely :( I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
Loved the two-steps
Captainbacon from Amarillo, TX
I actually liked this conditioner. I feel that the pre-conditioner is vital to this as it leaves your hair silky soft and healthy. I actually felt a difference after using the two-step conditioner and used this often despite having curly hair. I received this product complimentary for testing purposes and all opinions are my own.
Dava from Florida
Hate this. I think it damaged my hair more than helped it. It's horrible. I'm glad I didn't purchase this or I would be extremely mad. Waste of my time to be honest it went in the trash can immediately after use. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
Carm from Houston TX
LOVE this conditioner/whole matrix set. I received this product to try and used the entire bottle!! I will definitely be repurchasing. It made my hair feel so much stronger and overall healthier. I have a pretty big issue with dandruff and usually have to use head and shoulders and thought I couldn't use anything else.. after using this for weeks now it has definitely been an AMAZING change. Love it! I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
Amy from Louisiana
I've tested this product for a month. Made my hair greasy. Not much of a fan of it. There are better conditioners out there. I received this product free to test but all opinions are my own.
Great product for dry hair
Princess Consuela from Victorville, CA
I've always had dry hair so it's very hard to test and choose the right products that works. This particular conditioner though made my dry hair very soft and I can instantly feel it once it dries. The only downside is the smell but it definitely works. I tested this product for free, but all opinions are my own.
Rose from West Virginia
This is suppose to work two other products. Their shampoo and the pre-conditioner. Now I think that the pre-conditioner and this is a little gimmicky and you do not need the pre-conditioner to use this product. It felt nice in my hair but the time you have to wait for this conditioner to sit is too long for my normal showers to use all the time. The smell was lack luster and the conditioner did nothing to really soften my hair. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
Nikki from Austin, TX
Nothing special. Feel like I get roughly the same results with less expensive products. I received this for free to review.
Very average conditioner
Jacqui from Wa
I had high hopes for this conditioner and it worked well to moisturize but it really didn't heal my split ends or do anything to repair damage.
Susucachoo from Raleigh, NC
This product is great! It left my hair feeling silky smooth all day long. I did use it together with the shampoo and on top of the pre conditioner so as a system I love it. And also I want to note I don't have color treated hair and it wasn't too heavy for me and my fine hair I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
I would recommend this
Casey from Naples, FL
I love most of Matrix's products and I loved this. It made my hair super soft without weighing it down like some conditioners can do. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
Luvuvy from Ohio
I liked this conditioner! I think it left my hair a bit more smooth and soft. It definitely helped my frizz and dry hair. I found that my hair was a bit more flat though, which can be solved with products. The smell and packaging of this product is nice!
Lindsay M from NJ
A great product as part of the 3 product system for damaged hair. My hair dresser noticed a difference after only using it a few times. Highly recommend for all hair types to keep your hair strong. Awesome!! I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
Kaitlyn from texas
I fried all of my hair by dying it harshly. My hair has had major breakage and looked so dead and raggedy and gross! This 3 step re-bond washing process was recommended to me and of course I was willing to try anything. It's only been two weeks and my hair looks so much better! I can go in public without wearing my hair back and I can feel confident. My hair literally felt like barbie doll hair and now it feels softer! I'm so grateful for this product and would highly recommend it! TIP: Leaving in the conditioner for 10-20 minutes every time you wash will help your hair become soft and seem healthier quicker !!
would buy again
kim from michigan
definitely notice a difference after only one wash! my hair is bleach damaged and straw-like. after using it, it feels fuller and bouncy again! didn't give it the full stars because i think its a bit pricey.
Amazing system for colored hair
Netterz13 from Bay Area, CA
I have fine, thin, graying hair and get an all over base color with blonde highlights. My hair was getting pretty damaged from the bleaching and the toner wasn't lasting very long, so I decided to get the complete re-bond system to try. I have to say I'm extremely pleased with the results. My toner stayed true to color for much longer than before and my hair feels healthier and easier to style. I only needed to use purple shampoo once and that was a few days before I went back for a salon touch up. Before I used the Re-bond system my highlights would be very brassy by the time I went back for my service. The system doesn't weigh my fine hair down at all. I don't know if the conditioner alone would get the same results as I used the whole system (shampoo, pre-conditioner and conditioner).
