Alterna Caviar CC Cream Review

10850175-1364444948821273

Pros:

Smells very nice

Cons:

Makes my hair look greasy when applied to dry hair.

More:

This cc cream promises your hair everything in the world (moisture, shine, softness, UV protection, strength…and 5 more things since its a 10 in one..). I have classic thin Scandinavian hair…so I constantly dream of some va-va-voom feeling..therefore I had very high hopes. First time I used it on towel dry hair and when used in combination with other volume products, I could see more shiny and looked more sleak and my split ends were less visible. Other times when I have used it on dry and not newly washed hair I just got the result of greasy hair and felt pretty disappointed.

Alterna Caviar INTENSE OIL CRÈME SHAMPOO and Deep Conditioner Review

1

Pros:

I can go a week without washing my hair when using this duo.

Cons:

I still need to use my oils to make my hair soft.

More:

I have mixed feeling about this duo – being a huge fan of expensive but “oh soo effective” Alterna I had huge expectations. First and foremost this shampoo and conditioner smell great, they are a bit hard to wash out and lather well. What about the result? Well when using these two I can go for 1 week without washing my hair and it still looks great on the last days. It‘s not very easy to detangle and I don‘t feel that extra moisture which is promised – leaving me a bit disappointed.

ALTERNA CAVIAR REPAIR MICRO-BEAD FILL & FIX TREATMENT MASQUE REVIEW

Pros:

Makes my hair very soft.

Cons:

The price (is pretty crazy).

More:

This mask has a very creamy texture, it is almost like putting pudding in your hair (but in a nice comfortable way – not the weird “I like food on my body” way). Using it, is supposed to give one more shiny and soft hair, which it does. You are supposed to leave it on for 3 minutes, and sometimes I stretch it to 10, but usually the result is pretty much the same. It doesn‘t help your hair to gain volume or a certain (un-troll-like) shape, and if your ends are very dry you will need some extra oil or leave-in love, therefore it is not fully worth its price.

Alterna Caviar Repair Lengthening Hair and Scalp Elixir Review

Pros:

I do feel that my hair has become stronger after I started using this elixir.

Cons:

You need a lot per use to massage into scalp.

More:

About six months ago I started to loose big chunks of hair. Every time I brushed my hair one could make a wig of what I left on my hair brush, literally. This elixir promises to strengthen your hair, prevent breakage and maximise the potential length of your hair. A big plus is that it is free of parabens, sulphates, DEA, TEA, Gluten, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, PABA, and Paraffin. You massage it into your scalp after washing your hair, say a little prayer and hope for the best.

My verdict: I certainly noticed a difference, since my hair does‘t fall out as easily as before. But I‘m not quit sure how much has to do with this magic elixir and how much is due to my realisation that I would loose all my hair if I went on like this. I really like that no matter how much of it I put in my hair, it never turns greasy, which is a major plus. Does it make my hair grow faster? Actually I think so, I have been cutting it every second month after starting using this elixir, and am not bold yet..so yes it works.

Review of Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Milk Leave-In Conditioning Spray

Pros:

Really helps my split and dry ends.

Cons:

The effect wears off after 2-3 days (I only wash my hair every fifth day).

More:

My split and dry hair ends are a constant problem. Even a week after cutting my hair I can feel how they become dry and tired again. Usually I fight this problem with a lot of oil , thus this was my first every leave-in conditioner. I was not left disappointed, using a generous amount on my split ends after washing my hair I really noticed a big difference, my hair feeling much softer and having a healthier look.. Despite over-applying this cream a few times (in moments of desperation) my hair never felt oily, and though the effect wore off after a couple of days, and I still had to supplement with some oil I really like this conditioner. A minus is its synthetic smell.
