    Pros

    • Adds Volume
    • Cleans Thoroughly
    • Lathers Well

    Cons

    • Slightly Drying

    Best Uses

    • Oily Hair
    • Thinner Hair

    Comments about Alterna Bamboo Volume Abundant Volume Shampoo:

    Great for someone with fine, naturally oily hair; although, it can be somewhat drying if used on a daily basis. Pairing it with the complimenting conditioner will help balance the effects!

    In my case, my hair has always needed to be washed and blow dried every day since junior high. If I don't wash it, I'm doomed to a greasy hair day; if I don't dry it, it becomes too silky and limp to style...overall, no fun for me. This shampoo gave me lots of bounce and volume - especially if I followed up with volumizing mousse and the blow dryer. BAM! Great hair day. It even gave my hair volume on some days that I didn't blow dry. Magical.

    One con that I did notice, though, was that it started to dry my hair out after several weeks of daily shampoo & conditioner usage. Easy fix, I just swapped to a more "nutritious" shampoo & conditioner for a day or two. Also, that detail did not bother me so much, because my hair is somewhat oily at the end of a normal day anyway (just from running my fingers through my hair, readjusting, restyling, etc.).

    Overall, I enjoyed the product, and I would definitely recommend it!

                  Finally found a shampoo that works great on my baby fine hair. It strengthens and looks shiny and healthy. It adds some texture and volume. A volume shampoo that's safe for color treated hair, which is very hard to find. Wish the bottle was larger for the money, I think it's pricey.

                    Love this shampoo for volume. It doesn't take much to lather up so you can stretch it as it is a little pricey but worth it in effectiveness and a subtle great smell.
