      Comments about Alterna Caviar CC Cream:

      A lot of the comments are so different from my experience that I wonder if I received a different product. A little certainly does not go a long way with this, I had to use quite a lot of this cream on my towel-dried hair to cover it completely. The finish when this dries is completely dull, no shine whatsoever. It added zero definition to my curl. It barely controlled any frizz. Basically, this product left my hair dull, dry, shapeless, and crunchy. (Try something like the much less expensive Got2B Lustre Lotion, and you'll see, your results will be the complete opposite of that.)
      To top it off, this cream has this horrible strong lemon smell. I've used a lot of hair products in my life, and never had one that smelled of lemons - Alterna, there is a reason other companies don't use it. I am glad that I received a sample of this and did not shell out the big bucks for such an all-around terrible product.

        I was using Living Proof's 5-in-1 and thought I loved it until I found a sample of this lying around in my collection. Holy Moly! This stuff is amazing. I just bought a full size because I don't think I can live without this now.

                        I'd like to know if the Alterna Bamboo 48 hr. volume spray can be used along with this CC Cream...and if so, how to layer them. I have somewhat fine hair, but a decent amount ( and it's colored blonde) Thank you!

                          Yes, all Alterna products are made for layering if desired. We recommend using the CC Cream first, on damp hair, followed by 48 Hr Volume Spray throughout the hair for added volume.

                          CAVIAR CC Cream is not a gel so you should not get the crunchy, sticky feeling when using this product. It is a leave-in cream treatment that provides complete correction, providing: Moisture, Shine, Smoothness, Softness, Anti-Breakage, Heat Protection, Light Hold, UV Protection, Manageability and Strength. You can also use it on dry hair as a finish to get the desired shape of curl you are looking for.

                        Can I use this CC Cream while air drying my hair? Some products work better if you dry them into hair with a blow dryer. I'm looking for smoothing, manageability, and less frizz without a tacky residue.
