Taming the Curly Beast: Matrix Sleek Look Shampoo and Conditioner

If something out there claims to help make my curly, nappy hair sleek, you know I'm going to try it. Not that I expect any hair product to magically straighten my hair, but I like to know that I'm helping out my flat iron by putting good product on beforehand.

The Matrix Sleek Look Shampoo/Conditioner duo does a great job at smoothing hair out and helping reduce volume. It's not going to make your hair straight or sleek, really. That part is up to you, but these products give you a great foundation to work with.

If you have naturally straight hair, this might not be the duo for you, but if you have curly hair that you're always working with, these realistically priced products might be what you're looking for.

While I thank you for writing a great review about Sleek.look, I urge you not to encourage your esteemed readers to buy professional products from unauthorized retailers like the one your post links to. Matrix cannot guarantee the quality of products purchased outside of salons. Additionally, Good Morning America & ABC15 (KNXV-TV) news found that products purchased from unauthorized retailers can be counterfeit, contaminated and even cost more. We also don’t want your readers to miss out on a professional recommendation from their stylist. I encourage you to visit my blog, www.davidcraggs.com, to find out more about this industrywide problem called Diversion.
