Rated 4.68 out of 5 stars
Let me just start by telling you about my wrecked hair - it's triple processed to achieve a true platinum blonde/white. It's bleached, toned, and then glazed (all Matrix brand), which takes a TON of time and work. I also typically use a salon-brand purple shampoo to help ward off brassiness.
I've been frustrated with how dry and dull my hair has become, but I know it's my own fault! When I saw this new Food for Soft line by Matrix I was excited yet skeptical. Jaded, perhaps. I feel like nothing has really come close to hydrating and revitalizing my over-processed hair…and was seriously considering cutting it as a last resort. However…THIS STUFF IS THE REAL DEAL!!!
I can't believe how well this shampoo works - it cleanses without stripping, has a velvety and rich lather, and the smell is DELIGHTFUL. I'm talking probably the best-smelling shampoo I've ever used!
I'm now a true convert and will be purchasing another bottle once I run out. Thank you, Matrix Food for Soft, for saving my hair!💗
Matrix food for soft shampoo has a light mint, rosemary and avocado scent. This shampoo lathers really well with just a little bit. Now I tried the shampoo on 3b-4c hair (6 Different heads), and it worked well with everyone's hair! I LOVE WATER is the first ingredient, but I do have a problem with the ingredients that follow like sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) and (SLS) Sodium lauryl sulfate, as these are both well know sulfates that can lead to kidney damage and hormone disruption. Sodium chloride strips colored, and processed hair, and it dehydrates hair and scalp. For people with sensitive hair to silicone, there's amodimethicone and dimethicone in this shampoo. Though I have enjoyed this shampoo especially since I received it free in exchange for my personal honest review, I will discontinue use!!

I have used this a few times and I can say it makes my hair extremely greasy 36 to 48 hours later. I do not wash my hair daily so its unfortunate I cannot really use this product. Very dissapointed.

I cannot say enough good things about this shampoo. First of all, the scent is amazing. It is fruity and almost like an apple scent. The shampoo has a rich lather and is so moisturizing!

I did not realize my hair was in need of hydration until I used this shampoo, and it made my hair so soft and manageable and it didn't feel like it was cakes in some artificial softening agent. It felt truly clean but soft and healthy. So clean and fresh!

This is by far my favorite shampoo ever. My hair has never been healthier, cleaner, or shinier. I will definitely be purchasing this in the future.

Not too impressive compared with the conditioner. It does the basic cleaning job, but feels like my hair gets oily faster compared with using other products.

This is a great shampoo. It really does leave your hair very soft. I like how it smells. It's really good. I have no complaints. I definitely recommend it.

matrix food for soft hair shampoo provides 7 times more moisture for up to 72 hours. Makes my dry damaged hair feel so soft and smells wonderful. Its vegan formula gives my hair a beautiful shine. Safe for color-treated hair. Just put a quarter size amount of shampoo lather and rinse. Follow with conditioner for beautiful soft shiny hair.

I liked the product from the first use, but I wanted to give it some more time to see how my hair reacts to it. Overall it did like it, and my hair looked and felt great, but I think a different line would fit me better. I noticed a bit of dandruff developing after 3 weeks. I still think this is a great shampoo, but I would love to try maybe a shampoo for normal hair, as it turns out mine is not very dry:) I know my friend tried it and she loved it! So would recommend!

But this shampoo, man it hydrates my hair so good i literallydo not even need to conditionafter or use anything else!! Definitely a must have!!

Okay this shampoo exceeded every expectation i had. It is by far one of the best shampoos i have ever used. My hair is recently bleached and dyed pink and it needed a shampoo that can help it with how much life it had lost from the bleach and this products did just that. And the smell is sooo amazing love it!

This shampoo has left my hair feeling hydrated. I noticed the different right away. My hair felt cleaned and refreshed but not stripped dry. I have curly coily hair that loves a good hydration drink. When my hair is hydrated right my curls are on point and that is what this product helped to do. The scent of this produt is amazing too. A soft flora smell that isnt too strong in the shower. I also like that the bottle was an easy squeeze tub bottle. The plastic surprisingly soft and I liked that a lot. Winter season is here in my area and the cold air tends to dry out my hair but this has help a lot. I used this in combination with Matrix's hair mask. With both product my hair was happy and hydrated.

I genuinely enjoyed this shampoo , I have stringy greasy hair and this product brought my hair back to life. Feeling hydrated , and not all stringy and dry after use like other shampoo I've used before. The smell is amazing and this product is rich in formula, I enjoy it 💚

This is a great product for dry hair or hair that needs a little extra moisture! Overall it's a great product and I would use it again! I wash my hair about every 2 to 3 days for reference.

Matrix Food For Soft has transformed my hair care routine with its innovative shampoo and hair mask combo. The shampoo, housed in one container, cleanses my hair gently, leaving it refreshed and ready for the next step. The real star is the hair mask, conveniently packaged in a separate container. This indulgent treatment transforms my strands, making them unbelievably soft and manageable. The separation of the products allows for a tailored approach, addressing specific hair needs. Together, they create a powerful duo, leaving my hair irresistibly soft and beautifully nourished. Matrix Food For Soft is a game-changer in achieving the ultimate hair goals.

Disclaimer: i received this product for free from Influenster and Matrix in exchange for my honest review and i loved it. It smelled so good and it made my hair feel very soft.

This shampoo foams up so well! It really feels like it's giving my hair a deep squeaky clean. It smells like a basic shampoo nothing special however what bothers me is an ingredient in the shampoo called dimethicone. It's known to make your hair fall out so I'm iffy about continuing to use it.
beauty_by_baljit from undisclosed
Smells good and a little amount goes all the way. It's a nice shampoo and I would reccomend. You should try it. It leaves your hair smooth and soft and does not weigh it down!
carinah16 from undisclosed
I definitely felt that this shampoo and conditioner left my hair feeling super soft and shiny but I noticed in the ingredients that the shampoo contains sulfates and the conditioner has fragrance (even though the smell was subtle) these ingredients make me feel like it won't be a go to for me but rather an every once in a while when I want some good shine!
caito8 from undisclosed
I loved the scent of this product! I also liked the packaging. The cylindrical design made it very user friendly. I feel like it left my hair softer than before I washed it.
jessicamee7f from undisclosed
I really enjoyed this shampoo. After washing and drying it left my hair feeling soft, shiny, and lightweight. There isn't much of a fragrance to it that I noticed, which I prefer something a bit scented but I have no other complaints about this shampoo!
