I bought this Matrix Bond Treatment because my hair stylist advised it to me. I was surprised to find out that it’s a follow-up wash treatment. I mean, it’s to be applied before a shampoo. I’ve never seen anything of that kind before.


  • I bought it at a salon.

The product is said to be used as an after salon coloring and lightening. But my hair stylist recommended it as a standalone product.

A few words about my hair: high porosity, damaged and brittle, even though I don’t trial it with any heat tools or coloring.

And now about the product promises:

The formula acts as a buffer for the alkaline agents in the lightening process that preserves the bond while allowing the lightening to continue to happen.


Bond Ultim8 prevents bond breakage during chemical hair process and protects the bonds over time. Protect bonds with 8 benefits in 1.

The smell is chemical.

The consistency is thick, aka, hair conditioner.

Use: Apply the product before shampooing. Massage in and leave on for 10-20 minutes. Rinse off thoroughly.

Impressions of use:

I haven’t noticed any results at all. My hair is frizzy all over and even my hair conditioner couldn’t tame it.

In fact, I can’t even get how the product can be working over my dirty hair when the cuticles are stuffed with dust and God knows what else. Maybe, it’s a good additional hair treatment after blonding. But as a standalone treatment, it does nothing for my hair.
