        Comments about Alterna Bamboo Color Hold + Vibrant Color Conditioner:

        In March I got my hair dyed a really nice red with a purple undertone. I was so worried about losing the color quickly so I researched online and the reviews for this product were great. So I bought it and used it maybe 8 times. It did not have a nice scent at all and it seems like most everyone who reviewed said they love the scent. In fact my hair had some gross chemical smell afterwards. I used it a few times to give it the benefit of the doubt. Eventually my hair did not respond well to it. In the last week it looked greasy and felt like hay. My hair did not feel soft, it felt knotty. I washed my hair about 3x/week and I wasn't using a ton of it to cause greasiness.

        Today I tried Matrix Biolage Colorlast shampoo and conditioner and my hair has done a 180. Soft, lightweight, smells nice and my color didn't go down the drain!! I will say the Alterna didn't wash away my color - that was really the only plus for me. Here's hoping Biolage doesn't let me down!! lol

            love that it gives my hair a little more thickness/fullness and feels clean after washing. only problem I have is that I need to use a spray conditioner as my hair is full of tangles - vs other products.

                    The smell is fantastic!!!! It seems to be a tad thicker formula than most conditioners. I do not notice that much of a difference.
