i have had great success with this conditioner, and have been using it for several years. i have oily skin and hair that tends to get flat at the roots if im not careful, and this product is great because it does not weigh my hair down like so many other conditioners do. i only use it from the midshaft to the ends, never on the roots. i dont think theres really anything about it that adds volume per say, but its strength lies in the fact that it is weightless and rinses clean with no build up. it is pricey, so i would suggest going on alterna's website to request a sample before you buy it.
Dried out my hair. Didn't notice any volume from using it. Smells great. Pricy. The bottle is annoying. When the product got low, I tipped it upside down so it would dispense out faster but noticed it actually leaked out the sides of the cap. Bottle is made of hard plastic and hard to squeeze out the last bit of product
This conditioner is amazing! I have very fine Scandinavian hair. It really needs products that adds some volume to it. After using this conditioner my hair feels soft.
Life Volume Restore Conditioner smells nice. I like the texture. You only need the tiniest amount for every shower so a little goes a long way. I love how volumizing it is.
I use the shampoo in the same series too. The only downside is the fact that this conditioner is rather pricey. However, the many pros outweigh the cons so I'll keep buying this great conditioner. continued >>
I received a sample of this conditioner with a recent skinstore.com order. It seemed to work well at conditioning my fine hair without weighing it down after the single use the sample provided, but it has a lot of silicones and polyquaterniums that I suspect would build up on my fine hair with repeated use. This product has an outrageously long ingredient list. This conditioner is also super pricey, so I'm rather relieved that I don't love it!
