              Comments about Alterna Bamboo Color Hold + Vibrant Color Shampoo:

              I had very high hopes for this product (and a very big hole in my wallet) but after using it, I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy!
              MY HAIR:
              My hair is long, naturally tousled and usually only requires washing every 2-3 days at most. The hair itself is fine, but I have a great deal of it and it can get a little knotty, but nothing unbearable. It's usually pretty obediant when styling, but sometimes can get a little fluffy.

              I wanted a product that would give my hair a little more love so I could grow it longer without it fraying and going crunchy as quickly at the ends. As I have color-treated hair, my trusted hair dresser recommended this product, despite the fact I'd never used a color shampoo before.
              Being a natural composition shampoo, I expected it to not lather as well and to not have the 'silicon' softness of the shampoos I had been using. I followed protocol to the T when it came to washing, drying, brushing and even plaiting it at night so that it doesn't tangle.
              I've used this multiple times and have given it ample chance to redeem itself. I've followed my wash with both proper and express hair drying as well as air-drying it.

              THE RESULT:
              I've never felt my hair like this before! It's disgusting. Once it's washed, it's already greasy from root to end. It absolutely in no way feels soft or glows. It is IMPOSSIBLE to style, especially since it's fluffier than it's ever been and gets so unbearably knotty. It's dull, lifeless, knotty and feels like the grease trap from a fast food restaurant. I can't stress enough how mortified I am with this product.
              I honestly feel like it is doing more detriment to my hair than my usual cheap shampoos!!

              Nevermind the price being too much for a mediocre result, I feel sick at paying that much money for something that has made me ASHAMED of my hair!!

              I would never use it again, even if they paid me the money I paid them!!

                    Comments about Alterna Bamboo Color Hold + Vibrant Color Shampoo:

                    Great at stopping color fade, but like many other reviewers, I found it to be too drying on my hair, even when using the matching conditioner. This product is too expensive to use for "just okay" results, so I won't be purchasing it again unless they change the formula to benefit dry hair. I LOVE the Alterna bamboo styling products and will continue to use them.

                      I wanted to like this product. The reviews encouraged me to try a product that is free of harsh chemicals
                      Ironically, I have color-treated hair. Sadly, shampoo and conditioner left my normally full-bodied hair lifeless. Typically, my hair is full of bounce but the product left it just bland. My stylist explained that the more natural shampoos do not strip the hair of oils like other shampoos; therefore, my hair was weighed down by the oils. And, I love sweet smelling hair but I barely noticed any lasting scent.

                              I just dyed my hair a berry/wine/deep plum color, will this product help preserve my color? Or is this product better suited for someone with a more "natural" hair color?
