I am very excited to share some new hair products that have really been working out for me!! I've tried a lot of cheap drugstore items and I am always disappointed with the results it gives me. I finally gave up and started trying some more expensive hair product brands. I will say that just because you are dishing out more money on a product doesn't necessarily mean its good...I've learned that the hard way.
The brand is called Alterna and I've been having a lot of luck with their bamboo line.
The first product I tried was the Alterna Bamboo Color Hold+ Rehab Deep Hydration Masque. I really wanted a masque that would fix my color treated and dried out hair. I was looking for someone that would leave my hair soft and feeling healthy, that's exactly what you get this!! The masque is supposed to help restore, shine and strength color processed hair.
I will say the jar doesn't last long but that's probably because I use the product twice a week and I like to pack it on!!! I feel that the more I use the masque the less product I have to use. I am hoping that's because my hair is getting healthier. This is my third jar and that's really saying something since I don't typically repurchase many products.
The consistence is very thick and creamy, it's recommended to leave it on for about 5min but I always try to go longer.
The next product is called the Alterna Bamboo Volume Plumping Strand Expand. This is a newer product for me, I've only had it about one month. The reason I tried it was because I have very fine hair and I've been trying out thickening products, but I always end up being disappointed. I thought I would give this a try and I've very impressed.
The packaging is great, it comes in a pump. It's supposed to plump and fatten thin strands which I can say it definitely does.
You don't have to use a lot of this product and I feel that it is very light. Most thickening products feel greasy and will weight your hair down. ...that's a big deal breaker for me!
Finally the last product is also new for me, it's the Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil Mist. I picked up this product because I ran out of my Alterna Bamboo Smooth Pure Kendi Treatment Oil. I liked the treatment oil, however, the oil mist I thought would be nicer since you don't actually have to touch the product.
The oil mist can be sprayed directly onto your hair which is really nice. After getting out of the shower I mist this through my hair and brush it to distribute the product. It is a great product and I've not completely convinced if I like the oil mist or the oil treatment better. They are both amazing products so I would defiantly recommend both.
If you're interested in trying this out for yourself you can go to Alterna's website to see if a local salon sells it or it's also stocked at Sephora.
