Styling Products -Alterna -Alterna Caviar Perfect Iron Spray

on 4/14/2018 10:17:00 PM

So far, I really love the results I achieve with this flat iron spray. There is definitely a learning curve with it as it sprays a lot of product. Due to the pressurized can it’s very difficult to control the amount and direction of the product being sprayed; areas of the sections of hair tend to become more saturated than others so I have to either pull or comb the product through the section before flat ironing it.

It does leave the hair shiny, smooth, and it provides really fantastic hold. It drastically smoothes flyaways and frizz. When I use this spray I never get any crispy or frizzy ends and it doesn’t make my hair hard.
I do notice that my hair becomes a little sticky or gummy the day after styling, and by the third I definitely have to wash my hair (this isn’t a big deal bc I usually only wash my hair every 3 days anyway, depending).

I will warn that you need to careful about storing this can. It fell over in my cabinet and when I reached for it I noticed that it was leaking at the top underneath the spray nozzle. I wiped it up, cleaned out the product from the cap and haven’t had any problems since being more cautious and making sure it’s always standing upright.

You do also need to make sure the nozzle is clean before using as it can gunk up and cause the nozzle to spray unevenly or shoot out in one stream.

This spray’s scent is light and smells exactly like all the Alterna Caviar products, but perhaps a little more hairspray-like. If you’ve used any of the Alterna Caviar products you know exactly what to expect with the scent. It’s not a bad scent, it’s just different. It’s a little floral and a little herbal and if you’re new to this line the scent can take some getting used to.

This spray performs a lot better than other sprays I’ve tried in recent memory and because of this I definitely recommend it and will purchase it again.

Shampoo -Alterna -Bamboo Shine Luminous Shine Shampoo

I really wanted to like this shampoo. It smells great, and the twist top dispenser is cool. But it dried out my ends and left greasy buildup at the same time! I do live somewhere with hard water, but the shampoo doesn't lather at all and feels much thicker in consistency than other shampoos. A pity. I will be clarifying with my trusty Bumble and Bumble sunday shampoo and replace this with something more gentle.

Styling Products -Alterna -Caviar Repair Split Ends Mend

on 3/23/2018 7:26:00 PM

I received a free sample of this product, which normally costs $30. My hair was soft and smooth after using the product. However, the ends of my hair would get small, sticky tangles from it. I did not see any improvement on split ends, unless the stickiness was the intended repair. I will not repurchase this product because of the tangles it caused.

I got a sample of this product and remember really liking it. It adds a nice 'slickness' and shine to the hair without weighing it down. It's one of the few products you can add to dry hair without it getting greasy. I'd really recommend it if you blow dry your hair.

Conditioner -Alterna -Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Milk

I love using this product on days when I don't style my hair and let it air-dry.

I distribute a very small amount through mid-end section of my hair and call it a day. You can use this product for styling, but in my opinion I do prefer Alterna heat protectors for that, I reviewed them in a separate article here (http://www.partyparrotblog.com/single-post/2018/02/28/fourhairproductsthatsavetheday) in case you want to know what's good and what's not.

You can also use this cream as an overnight treatment; use a semi-generous amount, brush through, braid your hair (optional) and rinse it in the morning. It does give better results overtime.
