      This is my favorite leave in product. I have very fine hair and this product is perfect, doesn't weight down my hair but still provides the moisture my brittle hair needs. Absolutely love it.

        I have blonde balayage ombré and I'm always worried about frying my hair. I had been researching and reading reviews looking for a product that would help protect it since I use a flat iron almost every other day. This product makes my hair feel so smooth and adds shine to it while not leaving it look nor feel greasy. LOVE IT! I have been trying soooo many of the fancy expensive products so glad I came across this one. None of them do this one justice.

          I have fine easy breakage hair. I have tried other less expensive products and was never thrilled. You get what you pay for, definitely worth the money. This protect protects yet does not weigh down hair. It actually feels thicker after blow dried. I do recommend this. Glad I got it on sale or I may have never purchased.

          Lightweight, amazing smell, you don't need to apply much of the product, makes hair softer. The only con is that it doesn't tame frizz as much as I would have wanted to, but the product does say to use in conjunction with other products.

                I bought this to fight frizz. It is a spray lotion which left my hair greasy after only a few sprays. I have thin wavy hair and my daughter has thick curly and I tried it on both and it was a fail on both. Left a greasy residue only after a few sprays, and we both still had poufy frizzy hair afterwards. Didn't do a thing. But it smells nice, and I like the idea of a spray lotion, so I say it's average for a product.

                    Pricey but very worth it. I have dry damaged blonde hair and this not only prevents further damage but it repairs split ends in between trims. Smells great as well and doesn't leave hair greasy!

                    I bought this because of the awesome reviews. I was hoping for something that would help protect my hair but also help with detangling hair and keeping it soft. I have long thin hair so it tangles super easy. This product is not the best for my hair, and it almost seemed it make my hair tangle worse especially at the ends. Prob is best for other hair types

                    I bought this product on a whim, I can't believe how well it works for my hair. I spritz it on after I wash my hair and brush it through it detangles instantly, and I have noticed I do.not have the breakage or hair falling out as much as before! I use a cocktail of products but this is the first one on. it does what it says I flatiron my extremely thick and curly hair and the difference is amazing. I will not go without this.

                      Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Breakage Thermal Protectant Spray:

                      I had recently been to my stylist and she remarked on my hair feeling dry. Usually all I get from her are compliments, but i have been using my flat iron and blow dryer a lot more lately. I began to notice the dryness of my ends too after she pointed it out to me. I bought this stuff and from the first time I used it the difference was significant. My hair is wavy to curly and very thick. It usually frizzes when i blow dry it, but when I used this stuff, omg, it was like night and day. Hair was smooth, ends looked happy, and I couldn't stop running my fingers through it. Great stuff!!

                          This product softens hair and locks in moisture to eliminate dryness and brittleness while fortifying hair to naturally increase strength and elasticity. For additional moisture, we recommend adding the CAVIAR Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Milk. The CAVIAR line contains caviar extract, which is sourced according to the CITES convention concerning animal and vegetable species protection—to avoid uncontrolled fishing of sturgeons, the eggs used come from a Siberian sturgeon (Acipenser Baerii) breeding farm in France.

                          Although they are similar products, Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Breakage Thermal Protectant Spray serves primarily as a styling primer and offers greater thermal protection for heat styling (up to 428 degrees), while Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil Mist serves as both a hair treatment and styling primer with a formula that infuses hair with nutrients & anti-oxidants. Both are weightless and ideal for all hair types including fine hair, and both help to reduce frizz.
