    I recently over did my hair with dying and highlights the passed few months. It was to the point where my hair was so dry and breaking. I picked this product up yesterday along with the Rx Shampoo and Conditioner. My hair has never felt so soft. In just one use my hair feels like it did before I every died it. Love love love!!

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

        Unfortunately, I had to return it. One use seemed to suck the moisture out of my hair and made it more dry and brittle. It looked dull and lifeless also. I adore the caviar oil by Alterna, but this was a no-go. At this price point, I expected to be wowed and I was let down.

              I received this as a sample and have only used it once, but I am already buying another! My hair is curly and long and I live in a dry climate- this made a huge difference. My hair felt smoother and healthier, love this stuff. Only wish it was a little less expensive, but obviously that's not stopping me.

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

                I have long, dry, thick hair, and this cream helps smooth it out and lock in moisture. I also use the Alterna Caviar shampoo & conditioner, but once a week I cleanse/clarify my hair with baking soda & condition with vinegar ("no-poo"). On those days, I make sure to use this after showering, and apply to my wet hair and concentrate on the ends. I let it air dry, and in the morning my hair is SO soft, shiny, and healthy looking! This is fantastic as a leave in cream. A little goes a long way (even for me with my thick, long hair) so that helps make up for the steep price tag!

                      This product gets the job done! My mom and i have really thick hair that loves to be frizzy and unruly. We have tried everything but all were too light or too heavy with temporary results.
                      This product on the other hand, actually has helped our hair become more docile and we haven't had any split ends from the blowdryer or flat iron

                      We use it when our hair is still wet from washing it.

                      Instantly makes it soft and manageable. Holds curls or waves in place with zero frizz

                      Speeds up blowdrying process.

                      A bit pricey but definitely worth every dollar!

                          I was so excited to try this line but unfortunately it did not live up to my expectations. I used this with the shampoo and conditioner and my already dry, color treated hair looked like straw. My hair was coarse and frizzy after using it and started breaking. For the money, I expected to help repair damage, not cause more. I never return products but felt compelled to get my money back on this one.

                            Is this product safe for color treated hair? I have a lot of gray at my roots, my hair is colored dark blonde. Some conditioning products that are protein can strip away the color within a few uses and my grey pops right out. Would love to order, so a prompt answer would be soooo appreciated!

                              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
