I was on the lookout for a good hair masque and bought the Matrix Biolage Ultra Hydrasource Hair masque. It created for very dry hair and can be used both as a conditioner and a masque.
I have been a big fan of Tresemme over the last few years but when I learned about the bad effects of silicones, I decided to switch to a silicone free conditioner instead.
Like the aloe plant that never seems to dry, biolage Ultra Hydrasource helps optimize moisture balance. Matrix Biolage Ultra Hydrasource Aloe Hydrating Masque revives dry strands with an intense conditioning treatment.
Price: Rs 490 for 490 grams.
Shelf life: 3 years
About the Product:
The masque comes in a huge white plastic jar with a purple screw on the lid. It is sturdy but not travel-friendly due to its size.
The masque is white in colour with a thick mousse-like consistency. It has a strong floral fragrance which lingers around until hair is completely dry.

Directions to use:
After HYDRASOURCE Shampoo, massage into damp hair, section by section and leave on for 5-10 minutes with or without heat. Rinse thoroughly. For ultimate hydration layer the masque over HYDRASOURCE Cera-Vital repair. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately.
My Experience using Matrix Biolage Ultra Hydrasource Hair Masque:
This is the first silicone-free conditioner or mask that I have tried. I have oily scalp but the hair ends have become quite dry in the past few months. So I decided to give this masque a try since it was also paraben-free.
The Matrix Biolage Ultra Hydrasource Hair Masque is thicker than regular conditioners yet a bit lighter than most hair masques. You know the difference just by rubbing it between the fingers since it does not have that slick silicone-y feel to it.
Post-shampoo, I use a coin-sized amount and apply it to hair strands starting at the tips and then moving up to mid-length. I leave it for around 3-4 minutes and then rinse it out. Once a month I use double the quantity and apply it all over the hair for 10-15 minutes as a deep conditioner.
This masque is truly amazing since it conditions dry hair very well without weighing it down. It detangles all knots and leaves hair bouncy and shiny.
It also helps manage frizz. The masque lasted for 6-7 months since I mostly use this as a conditioner and you need very little quantity of it that way.
It works really well on dry or very dry hair. But if you have normal hair, you can use this once or twice a month to deep condition your hair.
Overall, I am really happy with the performance but I will not be repurchasing this again since this does have artificial fragrance despite being paraben and silicone free.
Also, aloe vera is mentioned way too low on the ingredient list, so I doubt if it will make any difference to your hair.

Final Thoughts on Matrix Biolage Ultra HydraSoure Hair Mask:
The Matrix Biolage Ultra Hydrasource Hair Masque is a good silicone and paraben free deep conditioner for all hair types, especially dry hair. The masque is very cost effective and will last long.
The artificial scent added includes skin irritants and allergens so its best avoided if you have skin allergies. Other than that there are really no issues with this one. A great buy for dry hair.
