Alterna's Caviar Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner

Alterna-Caviar-shampoo-conditionerThanks to Lock & Mane, I recently tried out Alterna’s Caviar Moisture Shampoo with Seasilk & Caviar Moisture Conditioner with Seasilk. These products are ideal for dry, brittle hair and help bring it back to a healthy, silky condition.

Here’s the Deal: These products are sulfate and paraben free, and contain Color Hold, which is perfect for those with color treated hair who want to avoid color fading and striping. The shampoo and conditioner also contain UVA/UVB protection, which shields hair from the sun’s harmful rays. Every Alterna product also contains enzymetherapy, a system that assists in the effectiveness of the delivery  of enzymes. According to Alterna, enzymetherapy helps transform ingredients into a structure that the hair and follicle can absorb easily so thicker, stronger hair can surface.

My Take: My fine hair really loved this shampoo and conditioner. It left my hair shiny and soft, and not at all stripped–even before the conditioner. Also, it wasn’t so soft it was limp and flat, which is a problem I have with some products. As far as the price point, it’s definitely higher than drugstore products, but I believe that you get what you pay for with hair products to some extent. Plus, I only had to use a little dab of conditioner to treat my long hair, and I feel much better knowing I’m not dumping prardens and sulfates onto my hair. The smell is awesome–a light floral scent that lasts. In fact, on second day hair my BF commented on how good my hair smelled! The only issue I had was the packaging–it has kind of an odd twist top, which is unnecessarily complicated, especially when your hands are all wet and soapy. A flip top would have been much easier. Minor complaint, but still worth noting.  Price for shampoo: $30.00 and for conditioner: $32.00.
