    I was really pissed of with my flat and limp hair. i tried many shampoos but none of them were able to add that gorgeous volume and lovely bounce to my hair. Then i switched to matrix. It worked wonders.Though it is slightly expensive, still i don’t mind spending. I am glad that matrix is available in India..Everyone must try it…
