How many times I’ve read about or heard about Alterna, I cannot tell you. A friend of mine had terribly dry color- treated hair and her hair stylist recommended she use the Alterna Hemp line. After she used it, her tresses looked amazing. I was intrigued.
Celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan, Kate Hudson, Jennifer Aniston, Hillary Duff (this is a small sample of the celebs) all love Alterna. It’s the crème de la crème of haircare products. Any products with caviar as an ingredient must to be special, right? I bet those are the products that Posh & Becks use. I know for a fact that Jennifer Aniston loves the TEN line, more on that later...
The green bottles for the LIFE line remind me of when the Brady Bunch went to Hawaii and found the Tiki idol. Every time I reach for the bottle, I think of that episode. LIFE contains Green Tea and Ginseng to create voluminous, healthy hair.
This shampoo and conditioner worked very well on my color treated, dry, limp, lifeless, lackluster, fried, damaged hair. These products boast the ability to boost the hair strands thus making your hair thicker. I appreciate the fact that the conditioner rinses out completely, don’t you hate it when your hair is weighed down? The smell is really light and pleasant. When I use my Alterna products, my hair looka and feels in much better condition than usual, maybe that is partly due to the fresh water pearl powder contained inside the shampoo!
The Caviar Anti-Aging line is fashioned from Caviar extract- a source of those ultra-amazing omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin C, and something called Cytokines “to encourage micro-circulation”. I wish they had this in pill form because it sounds very healthy, doesn’t it?
The Radiant Smoothing Lotion is a styling aid that gives a nice finish to your blown out hairdo. I haven’t used it on my curly coif but when my hair is sleek this finishes it off nicely and adds a hint of a lovely scent and softness too. I love the bottle to this and the Moulding Creme, - nifty tops that swivel to expose the pump. When you’re done, turn the top to hide the pump. I dig that!
I use the Moulding Crème everyday whether my hair is curly or straight. It adds thickness to my hair without making it feel greasy or heavy. I rub a small dot of it in my palms, lightly spread my hands through my hair, then blow dry.
I am really pleased with Alterna and of course now I'm hooked and want to try everything! Especially the very exclusive, high end White Truffle shampoo! Check this out - the new TEN line has all kinds of cool sounding ingredients like White Truffle Oil, Champagne Grape Seed Oil and Bulgarian Evening Primrose. With ingedients like that, I expect my hair would look like a lions mane! Alterna is sold at high-end salons and select online retailers.
