A deeply reparative shampoo formulated with strand-building proteins, which reconstruct each individual strand of hair from the inside out to rebuild, resurface and restore hair, leaving strands strong, healthy, smooth, shiny & fully restored. Key product benefits are derived from strand-building proteins, which target damage at the microscopic level, working to repair each individual strand of hair:
  • REBUILDS: This unique ingredient blend delivers essential nutrients to the hair's interior cortex, nourishing to help strengthen strands. Fills in gaps and tears in the damaged cuticle, reconstructing this protective layer to ensure that nutrients do not escape. Cements the newly constructed, exterior cuticle to the interior cortex, ensuring that the scales of the hair lay flat
  • RESURFACES: Seals and reinforces the cuticle layer with a defensive shield that strengthens the strand to increase resistance to breakage while infusing hair with vital antioxidants to help prevent free radical penetration and other damage from occurring.
  • RESTORES: Leaves strands fully restored to their healthy, pre-damaged state. Hair is stronger, smoother, softer and shinier.
Massage throughout wet hair. Rinse thoroughly. Follow with Caviar Repair Rx Instant Recovery Conditioner for optimal results.

            Comments about Alterna Caviar Repair Rx Instant Recovery Shampoo:

            I thought I'd splurge on this shampoo to help boost the health of my colored hair. The shampoo actually made my hair feel terrible!! When I lathered up, my hair clumped together and I couldn't even wash my scalp. The conditioner unclumped it, but I felt no benefit from this product.

                I put a lot of heat to my hair and I really hate haircuts because I love long hair. This shampoo and conditioner helps repair the heat damage I do. I haven't had a trim in over 6 months and I hardly have split ends. I'll never stop using it. It's worth every penny!

                        A:

                        It is safe to use every time you wash your hair and we would recommend doing this if your hair is showing signs of moderate to severe damage. Although, if your hair is only mildly damaged, you may not need to repair with every wash, and can alternate with something like CAVIAR Replenishing Moisture Shampoo.

                    • Q:

                      I am worried I have too much protein in my hair that is causing a moisture imbalance and extreme breakage. I was using this line and my hair went from damaged to healthy, but then I used its a ten (that has keratin) and BAM, extreme breakage and dryness after just conditioning, not even washing. I assume thats because of too much protein. Would this cause further damage as it has vegetable and rice proteins?

                        A:

                        Unfortunately, we cannot speak to how other brand's products work, so it is hard to tell what caused your breakage and dryness. Because of this, it tough to recommend an ALTERNA product that would be right for you. However, the CAVIAR Repair Shampoo and Conditioner are formulated to hydrate and help to repair very damaged hair and are gentle enough for frequent use.

                        If you are worried about using too much protein, the CAVIAR Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner is moisturizing and should help to repair some light damage, as well.

                    • Q:

                      I have very curly, color-treated hair, that is dry with extreme split ends and breakage from using a straightening iron for years. I've been trying to grow out my hair for years using redken length and extreme products, and my new stylist says that my hair won't absorb any of the strengthening products if it is not moisturized, I've tried adding redken all soft for moisture but I'm still not seeing results. So I am interested in trying out Alterna shampoo and conditioner, would this product and its accompanying conditioner be the most beneficial for my hair and provide enough moisture for my hair to absorb the strength it needs, or would I need to also use/alternate with the Alterna Replenishing Moisture shampoo/conditioner to get sufficient moisture?

                        A:

                        You could use the CAVIAR Repair Shampoo & Conditioner to start - they transform severely damaged hair, intensely nourishing and repairing each strand. Both products are formulated with Strand-Building Proteins, which reconstruct each individual strand of hair from the inside out to rebuild and resurface hair, leaving strands strong, healthy, smooth, shiny and fully restored. Once you feel your hair has repaired/not seeing as much damage you could switch to the Replenishing Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner. All Alterna products are safe to mix and match so if you feel you hair needs more moisture while using the Repair Shampoo & Conditioner, you are safe to use the Replenishing Moisture products.

                    • Q:

                      I recently purchased some Remy tape in, human hair extensions. They are bleached and dyed with alternate "piano" 18/613.
                      I need a shampoo and conditioner that will help keep the extensions healthy but not cause the tapes to slip due to the oil content.
                      Would this Cavier Rx Instant Recovery shampoo and conditioner be a good choice for my dry, bleached, damaged, tape in extension?

                        A:

                        We would suggest trying the CAVIAR Clinical Daily Detoxifying Shampoo as this is for men and women with fine, thinning or loss of hair. It is designed to eliminate dirt and oils from the scalp, allowing healthier, thicker-looking hair to surface. CAVIAR Instant Recovery Shampoo is great if you want to repair damaged hair and prevent future breakage.
