MATRIX was founded in 1980 by Arnie and Sydell Miller, who are both professional hairdressers.
Arnie Miller was a hair stylist for more than two decades before he decided to develop individually applied eyelashes in 1971. After forming a company to market this product and subsequently selling it in 1980, he chose to focus on building MATRIX, which marketed its products only to professional hair-care buyers.
“I felt that in order to be successful, I needed more focus. I chose the professional end because I knew the business better, and I liked it better,” he said.
Fast forward three decades, and here are some of the products available this season – sold exclusively online and in salons (the Biolage line was launched in August 2012 and full details are now available below):
Matrix Biolage Smooththérapie helps smooth unruly hair with the silky serum of Camellia flower seed to continuously control frizz, while replenishing hair’s moisture during dry, cool seasons. This range consists of a Deep Smoothing Shampoo, Conditioner, Ultra Control Deep Smoothing Masque and a Serum.
Matrix Biolage ExquisiteOil is also a great addition to the Biolage line. The Moringa Oil penetrates deeply into the hair to replenish and protect it from impurities.
