Therefore, the best way to determine your color scheme and a specific product for coloring hair is to use the services of a professional stylist or cosmetologist.

Method of application, nuances

When using hair coloring products from the company "Matrix", do not forget that this is a professional dye.

Therefore, both in the conditions of a beauty salon, and even more so at home, it is necessary to carefully observe certain rules when coloring.

The paint kit usually includes a box of tones, marked with a certain number, and a cream for coloring. Oxygen will have to be bought separately, necessarily branded.

Keep in mind that the amount of oxygenate in the mixture will affect the degree of coloring of your hair.

For toning, 1% oxygenate will be enough, whereas for persistent staining with a cardinal color change, you need to use already 8-9% oxygenate.

Just don't hold it for longer than 20 minutes so as not to damage the structure of your hair.


What kind of composition to apply in your particular case, usually helps to determine the sales assistant in a specialized store, or your stylist.

Reviews of home use of Matrix paints often agree that the best proportion for mixing dye with oxygen is 1: 1.

It is claimed that this proportion provides better durability of the resulting shade of curls.

It is also worth considering that most of the paints of this company do not contain ammonia or contain a very small amount of it.

This is good for the health of the hair, but given the lack of this brightener, the dye should be chosen 1-2 tones lighter so as not to get a darker tone than planned.

In the home version, the dye is applied to dry hair with a comb or brush, and it should be applied on top, and not rubbed.


First, the roots are processed for 10 minutes, and then all your strands are completely processed.

In order for the dye to evenly disperse through the hair, they need to be carefully combed, then the hair is kept under a plastic cap.

Rinse the hair carefully, with warm water, actively removing the dye from the scalp, but not washing it directly from the hair.

It is advisable after dyeing for several days not to wash your hair at all so that it does not fade, and then use a special conditioner for proper nutrition and softening of your curls.

Then they will always naturally shine and look healthy, and you will find a stunning appearance!

    And I was first introduced to Matrix paint in a barbershop. Came from brown haired to be blonde. For the first reception I received the desired pleasant ashen shade. While I was being painted, I remembered the name of the paint just in case. Six months later, it was repainted in a copper shade. Then into the chocolate. In all cases, the shade did not disappoint me, it was repainted, because I like to change, to experiment. Durability in principle is also no worse than other brands. The main thing is to comply with the recommendations of specialists.

  2. Anastasia

    I have already tried so many colors, and this one that fit, the hair from dull, turned into shiny, does not fall out, the dye lasts a long time, although my hair is a regular shampoo, for uncolored hair. Paint is applied easily and at home, as in other things I do, because I do not have time to go to the salon. I love it!

  3. Anna

    Mom is painted with a matrix. The first time she tried it, there were doubts. but it turned out that the paint is very persistent, the color is saturated. Perfectly paints over the gray hair and for a long time does not need to be tinted. As a rule, only the roots need to be tinted when they grow. Convenient and practical. The cost is quite adequate. There are no special comments on it.

  4. Asechka

    The palette of Matrix paints is not bad compared to competitors. With flowers yourself, you can get confused, you need to read the information on how to properly dilute. I wouldn't say it's the cheapest professional paint and again depends on the line and series. Some shades very poorly paint over the gray hair and dry the hair. There are also high-quality colors. In general, the paint is average.

  5. Anna Polis

    And I worked with this paint in the salon. I've never been let down! Always the clients were satisfied with leaving) But the cost is not from the budget. If you paint yourself, then yes, it may not be expensive, and with a salon boost, the price bites. But it's certainly worth it! Especially good for hair will be if you use a dye without ammonia. Hair will thank you)

  6. Ekaterina

    I have been using this dye for about a year, my hair is in perfect condition. very pleased with a large palette of colors, not every brand will have such a large assortment. the value for money is great, I can safely recommend the matrix. the only drawback is that my friend does not really manage to paint over the gray hair, but I think that many paints do not cope with this task.

  7. Irene

    A few years ago, in L'Or©al, I bought Matrix paint for a tryout, and did not lose. Seduced by the composition, which includes ceramides. The choice of shades is large, so there was a slight difficulty in making a decision, I stopped at the natural, closer to the natural. Following the instructions, I dyed my hair well from the roots to the tips. After drying, the hair is silky and the smell is pleasant. Since then, there is always a box with Matrix on the shelf.

  8. Tatyana

    At first, my friend didn't go from blonde to brown haired very successfully, the color lay unevenly, I think, you know what I mean. I'm not going to say what the paint was, because there was a matter of crooked handles, the girlfriend was not painted by a professional.
    It is difficult to return to the blonde, because I took a shade a little darker than before, just the colors of Matrix, and then everything lay down as it should!
    I, so to speak, in her footsteps, also later turned to this paint.
    As for the fact that you do not need to hold longer than 20 minutes, this is really important. And there is no point in keeping it longer, the color is already saturated.
