Bamboo Color Hold + Vibrant Color Shampoo combines strengthening organic bamboo extract with color locking organic Kalahari melon in a sulfate and sodium chloride free formula that cleanses and moisturizes hair while maintaining healthy, vibrant color. With wash-resistant Color Hold UV+ technology for the highest level of color protection. Sulfate and sodium chloride free formula gently cleanses and moisturizes hair while maintaining healthy, vibrant color.

Key Ingredients:

  • Organic bamboo extract: Immediately boosts hair's intrinsic strength, flexibility and sustainability for stronger, healthier, better-performing hair
  • Organic Kalahari melon: Culled from South Africa's Kalahari Desert, Kalahari melon known for its ability to thrive in extreme conditions is highly nourishing to the hair structure itself and has a naturally adaptive damage defense system that protects hair from both UVA and UVB damage.
  • Color Hold UV+: Wash-resistant UVA and UVB barrier offers the highest defense against hair color fade-out: 8 times more UV filter retention on the hair shaft and 5 times more natural resistance to color wash-out, versus traditional UV filters.


Formulated without sulfates, sodium chloride, parabens, gluten, DEA/TEA, phthalates, triclosan, synthetic dye. For all hair types. Safe for hair which is treated with color, keratin smoothing treatment, or straightening treatment/perm.

Massage throughout wet hair and scalp. Rinse thoroughly. Follow with Bamboo UV+ Color Protection Vibrant Color Conditioner for optimal results.

    Comments about Alterna Bamboo Color Hold + Vibrant Color Shampoo:

    My stylist recommended this shampoo. I have thick, dark brown hair that I've been highlighting for years. Used to use Redken's sulfate free products. And Pureology's products. But my stylist noticed build-up - my hair's thick, straight & heavy. She recommended Alturna's products instead - since I needed cleaning, moisturizing, color protectant - but products with a lighter feel. Couldn't be happier!! Smell is amazing, and the product works! Light, but takes care of my hair without weighing it down!

            I bought this product to maintain expensive highlights but it does not lather well but is gentle. So that is probably why I guess. ?!?
