      Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Frizz Shampoo:

      I live in south GA when the heat index is over 100 degrees and the humidity is 80% or more. I bought this because I have used other Alterna products and I needed something to keep my hair from frizzing. This did the job. I was totally impressed. I could not believe how soft and smooth my hair was even in that humidity.

                  Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Frizz Shampoo:

                  I just started using the shampoo and conditioner. I have very thick, fine straight hair that tends to be frizzy on the ends and greasy at the roots. I am washing and conditioning about with this product every 3-4 days with a bit of dry shampoo on the roots the last day. So far, I'm sold, it keeps my hair from looking frizzy and triangular shaped without weighing it down. Love it!!! FYI, I don't color or chemically treat my hair so I can't speak to how it performs In that aspect.

                        this was recommended by the Ulta stylist to preserve the Keratin staightening treatment. Hair frizzed out more - will not use again. I will be returning the unused portion.

                          Tried a "sample bag" from my hairstylist and loved the shampoo & conditioner (which were in small tubes). When shampoo was gone, I bought the 8.5 fl oz bottle (had conditioner left over from "sample bag"). Although this shampoo is quite "pricey", it is worth it. I love the way it makes my hair feel, and it does control the frizzies (which I have wavy, curly hair), and it also is safe for color treated hair!! It has a good smell and lathers very well. Great product...just wish the price was less expensive.
