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.

Joico Moisture Recovery Treatment Balm Review

Pros:

Smells great.

Cons:

My hair is pretty dry after using this mask, so no “wow” effect at all.

More:

My previous experiences with Joico have been pretty awesome, leaving my hair looking like a million (or like I just stepped out of a salon) – so this hair mask left me pretty disappointed. It smells great (like a hair salon but not in the synthetic chemical way but in the pleasant luxurious way), and you need a tiny bit per application – which makes the bottle last for ages (4 months roughly – though I only was my hair twice a week). But the results are pretty disappointing – my hair is pretty dry afterwards, so no fantastic moisturising effect at all. I fix that with oils and leave-in treatments, but still I expected more. Generally my hair looks pretty settled and fixed when I have used this mask which I like – these words might seem weird when talking about hair – but I just look like a crazy gorilla too often after a hair wash, which is why I like when my hair looks “structured” and sleek.

Orofluido Asia Zen Control Mask Review

Pros:

Makes my hair shiny and silky.

Cons:

Very strong smell.

More:

First time I used this mask it gave me a feeling of “wowowow”, I could really feel how my hair turned more shiny and silky. It is a myth that your hair gets used to products, and that you therefore should change your routines (hair is dead materia it cant get used to anything), but still I felt that the “wowowow” effect wore off after a couple of weeks of using this mask. Also I was a bit turned off when my dance partner (I am a fierce salsa dancer) commented on my hair smelling very strong. Despite this I still think it is a good budget alternative since it lasts for long and makes a difference.

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.
