Most Helpful Positive Review Brought my hair back from the dead
This product line literally brought my hair back from the dead. I have thyroid disease and one of the biggest side effects of the disease is dry, brittle, thinning, lifeless hair. Once I was properly diagnosed and put on the right medication, most my symptoms subsided, but my hair was still in very bad shape and not recovering well. After a month of using this shampoo, the conditioner and the weekly intese conditioner treatment, the results were astounding. This product line has almost completely resored my back to being strong, shiny and even started to bring the wave back to it. Truly my miracle product, thank you Matrix.
Most Helpful Critical Review Disappointed
I have fine, naturally wavy/curly hair and a lot of it, and I like to style it straight often. I highlight my naturally blonde hair several times a year and needed something very hydrating without breaking the bank. I've used more costly shampoos and conditioners in the past, but didn't want to spend that much. This shampoo was about half the cost of the other brand I've used in the past, and was recommended by an Ulta stylist at the store that day. Unfortunately, this shampoo dried out my hair rather than hydrating it. It lathered well and my hair was clean, but felt like straw. Even after using the matching conditioner my hair was not left moisturized after using this shampoo. Even though I spent less on this shampoo, I feel like I wasted good money. Very disappointed. If you have hair like mine, this probably isn't the shampoo for you.

It does make your hair grow just made my hair more greasy so if you have greasy hair already wouldn't recommend wish I would of looked more on the reviews , I do like the smell it has it just didn't work out for me .
My favorite shampoo

HAS REALLY HELPED MY HAIR GROW LONGER.
Love this brand
Ashley from Ca
I love the Matrix brand but I love the So Long Damage line even more. I professionally color my hair every 4 weeks and I apply heat to it daily so my hair has breakage and damage but this product has definitely helped it greatly. I will continue to purchase
Matrix products are the best!
Debra63 from IL
I like to change up my hair products, so I like to use this moisturizing shampoo a couple of times a week.

This makes my hair feel wonderful!
Cocogmansmom from Buffalo, NY
I tried this for the first time and it was one of the worst shampoos and conditioners i have ever used. Haven't been able to get my hair cut in long time due to Covid so thought may help growing it long. My hair tends to frizz and is wavy and on thinner side. May work on different hair texture. Wasted my $ cannot return due to Covid.
AJ from Taylor MI
This is a great shampoo. My hair gets dry at the ends. The scent doesn't bug me. I think it smells like bubblegum or maybe cherry.
do not recommend.
adri from dallas,texas
I purchased the shampoo and condition thinking it would work best. I was wrong. this shampoo tried out my hair so much! it made it frizzy and puffy. I wish the stores were closed so I could get my money back.
Kristin from Rochester NH
never expected I would love a product so much as I do this shampoo. I have been through countless expensive and an expensive product trying to find something that doesn't dry my hair out or make it too oily or leave a residue and this one sucks off all my boxes. To start, I love the fragrance- light and refreshing but stays after washing out. I also had noticeably softer, less frizzy and healthier looking hair in just one use. I have been using a few days now and I am not dosappointed. It's a great buy! Affordable and salon quality.
caused major hair loss :(
major hair loss from inland empire, ca
i'd used a different line by this brand before & i loved how soft it made my hair feel, so i decided i'd give the "so long damage" collection a try. after using this product, i noticed horrible hair loss. i shed so much at work and home without even touching my hair. gently running my fingers through my hair would result in pulling out chunks of hair- every time. i initially attributed the hair loss to stress, but after taking a hiatus from this brand, then continuing use. the hair loss returned & i now notice a warm tingly sensation after using it. :/ would not recommend this product!!
and for the record, my hair [was] very thick and was not too damaged before using this product. all but maybe the bottom two inches of my hair is virgin & i rarely use heating tools.
Steph87 from Missouri
I purchased this product along with the conditioner because I had used it while staying in a hotel and loved the scent and how it made my hair feel. After 2 weeks of using this shampoo and conditioner every other day, my scalp has raised red, itchy, bumps. All over even the back of my head but it is worse on the front. There are flakes even. This product would be amazing if it was sulfate free and free of other harmful chemicals. As much as I paid for these products you'd think that this company would have better quality ingredients that regular old drug store shampoo and conditioners.
Not a fan
KatyRN from Katy, TX
I've had some dryness due to color processing. This shampoo totally dried it more and made it so frizzy. The texture of my hair was different. I loved the smell but no, giving it away. Maybe someone else will have better luck with it.
Bye Bye Damaged ends
Julie from Newark, DE
I purchased the shampoo and conditioner. The shampoo is easy to use, does not leave any heavy build up or residue on my scalp or hair. It felt very clean and free of any products. I love the smell and it left my over processed hair feeling soft and manageable.I followed up with the conditioner. I have been using this only a short while but I do see and feel a difference on my ends where the salon bleached my ends and it really damaged my hair.
Not the best
Stac from Saginaw, MI
I've been using this shampoo for about a week now, my hair has felt very course and a little greasy. Will not purchase again
Greasy waste of money
Cyndi from Palm Beach, Fl
I'm not someone who spends more than $9 on shampoo but when these we're on sale I purchased them in hopes of being convinced that the price difference was worth it. I don't typically have oily hair and on most days can go without washing my hair every other day. While using this my hair felt cruddy and within the next day it looked oily and felt dirty so I ended up washing my hair everyday while using this. I ended returning it and will be going back to tressemme which is cheaper and works much better. Don't waste your money and don't be drawn in by the claim that it repairs damage, it's not possible, just use hair masks!
May have damaged my hair more!
ProudMama from Appleton, ME
This shampoo and conditioner made my hair feel like straw in the shower. I was hoping that once it was dry, I would be left with soft, beautiful hair. Not the case. My hair was left somewhat frizzy and DULL. I noticed a lot more shedding also.
Waste of money
Moxifloxi from California
Such a let down. First three ingredients are water and 2 kinds of L. sulfates. Does nothing to repair and nothing to even improve hair. I will be going back to AG since they are a far superior product to anything else I have tried.
A must have !!!
Beachy Jess from FL
Love love love....makes my hair soft shiny and healthy
Michelle from San antonio, Tx
Smells amazing, makes my HAIR feeling great.
Katherine from Queens, NY
There has definitely been a change in the formula of this shampoo. This used to be a grail for me and now it's extremely watery/runny and I end up going through this fairly quickly as it'll run out of my hands in the shower.
Does wonders for my hair
Titanmom from Michigan
have been using this product on the recommendation of my stylist due to having my hair colored and permed on a regular basis
Waste of money
Rosie from Rio grande city tx
Leaves my hair tangled and looking greasy doesn't make my hair smell good... the shampoo is to watery!!! Never buying again
Buying again and again

Most cheap shampoos made my hair sticky this doesn't
PrettyKritty from UT
I used this shampoo/conditioner for the first time a few weeks ago at a hotel; it was the complimentary shampoo offered by the hotel. I had the best hair day ever! I went online as soon as I returned from my trip and ordered a full size of each. I love this stuff, but I'm not crazy about the smell. Still, the results are worth it and I finish it with the Biolage Coconut leave in spray, which smells amazing. Very satisfied!
I would buy again
Suncatcher from Monroe MI
Just started using it but I do like the way it makes my hair feel after I have washed it
