I have been recommended Alterna by countless hairdressers over the years and mostly not let it sink in, mainly due to the 20 or so sets of shampoo & conditioners that I already own. I finally have gotten the chance to delve into the brand with the Smooth range so though I'd report on my findings.
|Alterna Bamboo Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner *|
First of all I love the design of the bottles, not only because they're bamboo shaped but also because they have those click lock tops & you just squeeze it out, no mess no fuss!
Secondly, the shampoo is possibly the thickest shampoo I've ever used. This isn't necessarily a bad thing but it does take a little longer to distribute through the whole of your hair than a thinner shampoo.
In terms of frizz control all I can say is 'Whoa'; I never thought my hair was particularly frizzy but once i'd used the combination of the shampoo & conditioner my hair was seriously smooth. It feels like I have run a pair of GHD's through it when all I do is roughly blow dry it.
Both products are sulphate & sodium chloride free and are available from Look Fantastic & HQ Hair for £16.75 each, I would recommend them to anyone with frizzy damaged hair, they will save you a lot of future damage from straighteners.
Have any of you tried anything from the Alterna range? What do you recommend?
