    Comments about Alterna Bamboo Volume Abundant Volume Shampoo:

    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.

                      I have a been using Alterna for over a year. I have fine hair, this definitely gives it a boost. I also flat iron my hair pretty much daily, my stylist said she can't believe it because my hair is SO healthy.... thanks to Alterna. Definitely an amazing line, worth the price.
