    Comments about Alterna Caviar Repair Rx Instant Recovery Shampoo:

    I never thought I would be able to find such a great product for my severely damaged hair. My hair is very fine, thin and brittle. My hair is naturally dry/thin in addition to being over processed and it seemed to be breaking off faster than it could grow. After using this product my hair feels soft, manageable and nearly frizz free- which is saying a lot for my hair. Slightly expensive but if you have damaged hair it actually WORKS.

      My hair was beyond dry! Didn't think I would find a shampoo that would work this well! I started using Living Proof but didn't get the results I was hoping for! I tried this one & it worked instantly! It's shiny and soft! I have s great hair day everyday! A little pricey but with this product you really do get what you pay for!

        Purchased shampoo and conditioner the day after using samples provided by another retailer and blown away by the textural improvements to my hair -- smoother, softer, and shinier. The scent is fantastically fresh with notes of citrus. Though it did not miraculously cure any split ends, it certainly help to disguise them. Hair feels smoother before applying the conditioner -- amazing.

          I have THICK hair and decided to go blonde for the summer. I got to the perfect shade of blonde but with that came the damage/breakage to my hair. This shampoo has worked wonders, by the second wash I noticed a HUGE difference in my hair even while wet.

            My hair is thin but I have a lot of it. I'm a brunette but have started turning grey. The grey hair is very coarse and wavy and it's made my hair seem dryer overall. I tried this shampoo and my hair feels so much better. Very pleased and it takes a very small amount so the price is worth it.

                When I ordered the product I didn't realize the bottle was so small. I guess I needed to read how many ounces I was getting. I was very disappointed for the price I paid for the amount I got. However after one use of the shampoo and crème rinse I could tell a big change in my hair. The split ends improved immediately and were gone after a couple uses. I love the it however for the price I'm not so sure I can continue to purchase unless I absoulty need to improve my split ends.

                    When I moved to Germany my hair was healthy and shiny and now my hair is so dry and damaged from the water here. I have been searching for a year a shampoo and conditioner that will softened my hair again. I know this shampoo is pricey but it is well worth the money. My hair is so soft and shiny again.

                        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!

                      How does this product compare to Redken Extreme? Since both are protein shampoos. Besides the sulfates that Redken has.

                        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.
