I'm so EXCITED to have been introduced to the Matrix Overachiever 3 in 1 ! I've been on the hunt for awhile now to find a product that gives the right amount of hold that my teenager's hard to manage hair needs. It has so many uses! He LOVES it! We love the scent as it's not too overpowering, the eye catching packaging and that it has salon like quality! I will be repurchasing as soon as we run out of this new staple haircare product! It's an absolute winner for the ENTIRE family!
This product claims to be 3 things in 1, but the end result on my hair was a mess. The gooey consistency of this hybrid hair styling product made it extremely difficult to spread through my hair. It seemed to glob onto wherever it was applied and refused to budge; I'd have to apply so much of this product to get an even distribution that I'd rather just use gel instead.
I've relatively thin hair that is shoulder length, so I might not be the target hair type and length for this type of product. Even so, it felt like I was applying glue to my hair — it matted my hair in strands of sticky residue and plastered it flat. I'm not a hair stylist, and this product might be useful for achieving specific looks in better trained hands than mine, but overall I found it too tricky to use.

Why is the Shape Shifter discontinued? Nothing works better than that paste!

I wanted to like this product because Matrix had never disappointed me in the past. I used the Shape Switcher Molding Paste religiously, but ever since it discontinued, I have yet to find a product that compares to it. So I decided to give the Over Achiever 3-in-1 a chance. I'm not a fan of the sheen look it gives nor the smell especially. It's strong and gives me a headache and makes my stomach turn. It doesn't even hold up my hair which isn't surprising because I have thick hair. It's like every other average hair paste I've ever used—disappointing.

This product is awesome for adding a bit of conditioning as well as making the hair manageable and easy to brush out!

Sheyla from Oceanside
I really like this product. It's hard to describe what the texture it's like. I like the fact I can use it on damp or dry hair.

Used this product to tame my fly always when I do low ponytails and it did an amazing job. Didn't leave my hair feeling crusty like some other brands I've tried and actually kept my fly always down while running around all day at work. The only downside I have to the product is that it's not as solid as I would prefer it to be. If you leave it on it side accidentally, all of the product will shift to that that side. Still would get this again!

I definitely enjoy products that allow me to skip multiple steps to keep my hair nice and healthy. I enjoyed using this product, it made doing my hair take less time and still have me lovely results.

This stuff is amazing! It holds like a wax but doesn't go on like one. It's easy to use & I can easily mold curls & get rid of those wispy flyaways with it. It's also a great texturizer. I loved using it to try different hair styles - I get a lot of wispy hairs flying around when I put my hair up, this did an amazing job of controlling those without being heavy & sticky. It's easy to use which I haven't found with similar products. I will be using this often & a little goes a long way!!

My hair is super thick and does not hold a curl very easily but this gel has helped with that a bit! While my hair still goes back to its natural form after 24 hours or so and I still have to use the curl setting spray before I curl, I do believe it helps extend the longevity of my curls. It smells great, isn't too thick and is easily buildable into your hair.

This product would probably work better with someone with thick hair, but weighed down my thin hair.

Cream + Paste + Wax = OVER ACHIEVER
3-in-1 is the real deal!
Rocky from Pittsburgh
This is a great hair paste. It keeps flyaways tamed. A little goes a long way! Did not make my hair feel oily or greasy which is a huge win with this type of product!

The matrix over achiever 3-1; it holds my 3C curly hair without the make it stiff or crunching. It left my curls very soft and shiny. There's no flaking, and it keeps my curls' shape for a few days. The natural ingredients are vegan and no animals derived
Allie from AL
Literally the best! I've been using it after straightening my hair to manage my flyaways and boy does it work! Love the smell and the way it spreads like a cream but holds like a wax.
Lala from Slidell, La.
The over achiever 3 in 1 works great if you have unruly hair and need to smooth it out and make sure it isn't going anywhere. This stuff will hold without a doubt. The only thing I didn't care for, is how super sticky it is. If you can deal with the stickiness of it then it's perfect. Did I mention it also smells amazing!
Nav from Colorado Springs
This product is amazing! Truly an overachiever, really happy with it.
KLB from Vermont
I use this for my son's hair and he loves it. hood perfect and smell amazing. It's holds all throughout his school day too
Lexi from Philadelphia
Great 3-in-1 product. I used this on wet hair and it leaves my hair looking so styled with great volume. It did not leave my hair feeling sticky or greasy, and I love that I only need a small amount of product to get big results. This is my new favorite every day product!
