      Comments about Alterna Bamboo Volume 48 Hour Sustainable Volume Spray:

      I like the amount of volume that I get with the product without hair feeling weighed down, sticky or tangled. I know it is difficult to obtain a "natural" feel while looking for volume, but I feel that this strikes a balance between some products that try to give hair height but are messy/sticky and sprays or gels that just do nothing at all. I have thinning, straight hair. I use every other day.

        I've used this for the past week and don't see it providing volume beyond the morning. Hair falls by mid afternoon.

        I'm just not seeing a significant change in volume - even for less than 48 hours. Probably would have given this a kinder review if Alterna didn't make such outrageous claims with this product.

        Comments about Alterna Bamboo Volume 48 Hour Sustainable Volume Spray:

        When I was coloring my hair at Ulta they showed me how to use this product..spraying only on the roots. I did the same at home but my hair was not soft. It did seem to work slightly though. I first put my styling products on my hair the pick up sections on the top of my head and spray roots then diffuse. I will continue with the product but not rebuy.

                Before drying hair after cleansing, spray all over. Adds volume for thinning hair.

                    I have very straight, fine hair...but a lot of it. This product is great for adding moveable height/volume at the crown. I usually wash my hair everyday...but if I don't, this product does work for 48 hours like advertised. Highly recommended. I use the shampoo, conditioner and the texturing cream in this line!

                      • Q:

                        Does this product have any thermal protection? I just used the bamboo thermal protection spray and mousse together and finished with the caviar anti aging extra hold hair spray. The three gave me some volume but I wanted a little more volume more hold.can anyone recommend products I could use in the alterna line for volume, hold, flexibility and shine. I have fine/normal color treated hair. It tends to get flat and a bit oily.

                          A:

                          Alterna Bamboo Volume 48 Hour Sustainable Volume Spray does provide heat protection benefits; however, it is recommended to couple this product with the BAMBOO Smooth Thermal Protectant Spray (Item # 2238061), which will help to provide 428 degree heat protection and an 87% reduction in breakage, and then layer in the 48 Hour Sustainable Volume Spray right before blow drying to add a 105% increase in volume that will last 48 hours or longer – this will provide optimum thermal protection and styling benefits. Because ALTERNA products are so lightweight and absorb so thoroughly, even when layering products, they are far less likely to cause your hair to go flat. If you feel like you still want more volume and hold, you can also try the Caviar Amplifying Mousse (Item #: 2110828). We hope this helps!

                        Will this product work well in conjunction with Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil Pure Treatment Oil? Or will the weight of the oil negate the volumizing effects?

                          It is fine to combine the Kendi Oil with the 48 Hr. Vol. Spray. They will not negate each other, they are meant to be mix and match!

                        does this product dry out fine hair?

                          A:

                          No, this product does not have a drying effect, and it is ideal to add volume to fine hair. It leaves hair soft, never stiff or crunchy. The key ingredients are:

                          Organic Bamboo Extract: Immediately boosts hair's strength, flexibility & sustainability for stronger, healthier hair.

                          Organic Maca Root: Energizes hair from the inside out to improve volume on three dimensions: fullness, thickness and lift.

                          Color Hold: Alterna's proprietary ingredient that infuses hair with plant-derived melanin for extreme color protection and prevents color wash out. Protects hair from UVA, UVB & visible light including artificial light sources. Rinse resistant.
