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.

              Had my hair heavily highlighted and sustained quite a bit of damage. This leaves my hair soft but hasn't repaired the damage after one week of daily use, along with the conditioner. Really expected more for the price. Disappointed. Probably would not buy again.

              • Reconstruct Damaged Breaking Hair

              Comments about Alterna Caviar Repair Rx Instant Recovery Shampoo:

              I've used both the Shampoo/Conditioner RX for about three wash cycles which is approximately a week and a half for me. I found this to lather incredibly well using a very small amount of product. This is very much a bonus for me because this product is rather expensive compared to other pro hair care brands.

              I have very course, dry, thick hair that is prone to breakage from excessive heat styling. This immediately made individual strands feel stronger and denser? It also, made my hair very shiny and rich looking.

              Before styling I didn't necessarily think my hair looked crazy good (it doesn't with other pro hair care either) BUT after styling (I favor using an instyler for a blowout ready style) it made a WORLD of difference. My hair looked like a million bucks! I have naturally thick voluminious (unstyled it is so POOFY) hair, but this just took it to a higher level. I'm excited to see how it looks weeks from now and if it will help my considerable split ends and breakage.

              My only major complaint is the design of the bottle. Compared to the old design (which I've seen floating around) this is much more aesthetically pleasing/downright pretty BUT who cares if it's almost impossible to get product out of the bottle. I just got this I can only imagine how much worse it will be after a couple weeks. If you have any arthritis or joint issues I wouldn't even bother or I would transfer the product to another container after purchasing.

              Over all I believe this defintely deserves four or even five stars.

                  A:

                  The CAVIAR Repair Instant Recovery Shampoo would be a great product to try as well as the Instant Recovery Conditioner. Both have Strand Building Proteins to target damage and rebuild, resurface and restore severely damaged hair. You could also try the CAVIAR CC Cream, a 10-in-1 leave in hair perfector for additional moisture.

                  A:

                  Caviar Repair Rx Instant Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner are designed to provide strand-building proteins to hair that shows significant signs of damage such as brittleness, dryness and split ends. These strand-building proteins will help to rebuild, resurface and restore each damaged strand to prevent future breakage and give healthy look and feel back to the hair. If you are experiencing dryness and breakage (such as split ends), Caviar Repair RX Instant Recovery Shampoo would be a great option!

                  A:

                  Both shampoos are similar in that they strengthen hair against breakage. As you stated, Alterna Caviar Repair Rx Instant Recovery Shampoo is sulfate-free and a wonderful option for hair that is chemically- and color-treated. Alterna's formula also features proven results: Alterna Caviar Repair Rx Instant Recovery Shampoo prevents 95% of breakage (vs. a non-conditioning shampoo). Additionally, in a consumer trial, after just one use, 9 out of 10 users saw improved strength, frizz control, softness & shine. We recommend reading the product ratings and reviews for both shampoos at ULTA.com.
