      I noticed right away that it seemed to dry out my hair.. At my hair appointment this afternoon, my hair dresser asked me what I was doing differently with my hair and products. She told me to immediately stop using this shampoo and the conditioner.

        Comments about Alterna Bamboo Volume Abundant Volume Shampoo:

        I absolutely love this product! I was using it for about two years and switched to a new stylist who uses Joico. I made the switch and 6 months later, my hair was limp, falling outo, and I just made my hair look unhealthy. I switched back to the shampoo and after one day of using it my hair already feels better. This is hands-down my Holy Grail shampoo.

                Comments about Alterna Bamboo Volume Abundant Volume Shampoo:

                Although this shampoo has a killer fragrance (wish I could find out what that is and just spray that on my hair) the ends of my hair were fried after only about 5 uses, even with the use of the conditioner. The conditioner adds to drying out the hair so don't bother with that.
