          Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Frizz Shampoo:

          It surprises me that this product has such great reviews. I wanted to re-shampoo before even leaving the shower, but wanted to give an honest review, so I didn't. The shampoo had no lather (to be expected) and was hard to distribute through my fairly thick, fairly coarse hair. I couldn't finger-comb the conditioner through, which is another bad sign for me. After my shower, I put in a little of the Bamboo kendi oil. My hair was easy to comb through, but as soon as I started to blow-dry with my vented brush, my roots had that sticky/oily gross feel. I re-shampooed right then and there.

              This is a great shampoo that is thick and easy to use. It leaves hair feeling clean and smells great. Knowing that it doesn't have the harsh chemicals as the other products is a must! I have long thick hair and love this shampoo however I feel they don't not give you enough product for the price.

                  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.
