Product Review : Matrix Biolage Cleansing Conditioner

We were visiting friends in Steamboat Springs this weekend. When we got there my girl friend showed me a conditioner she bought her daughter and asked me (knowing I am researching products and the ingredients in them) if the product was any “good”.

The product is Matrix, Biolage Cleansing Conditioner for Curly Hair.
The front of the bottle says Non-Stripping, No sulfates, No parabens.
Kind of makes you feel warm and fuzzy about buying the product. Makes you believe it is a safe product…
