Ask a Question

Caviar Repair Rx Re-Texturizing Protein Crème is a deeply restorative leave in treatment. Formulated with strand-building proteins to help restructure strands, filling in gaps & tears in the cuticle and strengthening the hair to protect from breakage & future damage. Transforms previously coarse hair, significantly improving smoothness, texture & manageability. 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.


Clinically proven to reduce breakage by 95%. (When used with Caviar Repair Rx Instant Recovery Shampoo & Instant Recovery Conditioner). Free of parabens, sulfates, sodium chloride, gluten, artificial color, phthalates.

Apply to freshly cleansed hair, focusing on the lengths. Blow dry as usual. Depending on the severity of damage, use 1-3 times per week.

      Comments about Alterna Caviar Repair Rx Re-Texturizing Protein Crème:

      The jury is still out on this product. I have only used it a few times. I have very thick, coarse, wavy, frizzy, asian hair. It is also color treated and dry and damaged. I put this on the hair shaft from the middle through to the ends, paying extra attention to the ends. I think it is helping to repair the ends but I am still waiting to see how it performs after several more applications. I put it in my hair when I know I won't be going anywhere.

        This product goes on after towel drying your hair and it goes on a little thick since it's a cream. It doesn't weigh my hair down or make it feel greasy.. it just gives it a silky hydrated feeling. I'm not sure I'll be repurchasing since it's so expensive but I might if it's on sale

                  I use this product a couple of times a week on the ends of my hair. It makes it look shiny and healthy, and my hair feels great. My 2 teenage daughters also used it last summer while we were vacationing at Disney in FL. They have very thick, wavy hair and it worked great for fighting the high humidity Frizzies! A tiny amount goes a LONG way, so even though the product IS initially expensive it lasts a very long time Def only needed about a pea size amount for my "past the shoulder length" hair. Any more is too much and makes it flat.

                    It was recommended that the caviar re-texturizing cream be used after the scalp and lengthening exlir for those with thick and coarse hair. I'm African-American and wondering is it essential to use the cream after as recommended or only if my hair is damaged, which it is not?

                      A:

                      No - all Alterna products can be layered on top of one another but you do not have to use the Lengthening Elixir before the Protein Cream to receive the benefits or vice versa. We recommend using the Protein Cream once a week, even if you hair isn't severely damaged to strengthen and protect the hair from future damage.

                      Caviar Repair RX Re-Texturizing Protein Crème is designed specifically to work on damp hair. While it could be applied to dry hair and won't harm the hair, it may not give the results that it is intended to give and may not give as nice a finish. Keep in mind, though that it is not intended for daily use and you only need to use it 1-3 times per week to see fantastic results.

                      A:

                      This product works great as a reparative leave-in treatment for dry, damaged hair and can be used 1-3 days a week, depending on the severity of damage. It is formulated with Strand-Building Proteins to help rebuild hair and improve texture and manageability.

                      For further hair repair, we recommend a weekly hair mask like Alterna CAVIAR Repair RX Masque (Item #: 2251344), which contains super-concentrated microbeads containing the same reparative Strand-Building Proteins for a larger dose of treatment: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod4610209
