Caviar Repair Rx Re-Texturizing Protein Crème is a deeply restorative leave in treatment. Formulated with strand-building proteins to help restructure strands, filling in gaps & tears in the cuticle and strengthening the hair to protect from breakage & future damage. Transforms previously coarse hair, significantly improving smoothness, texture & manageability. Key product benefits are derived from strand-building proteins, which target damage at the microscopic level, working to repair each individual strand of hair:

  • Rebuilds: This unique ingredient blend delivers essential nutrients to the hair's interior cortex, nourishing to help strengthen strands. Fills in gaps and tears in the damaged cuticle, reconstructing this protective layer to ensure that nutrients do not escape. Cements the newly constructed, exterior cuticle to the interior cortex, ensuring that the scales of the hair lay flat.
  • Resurfaces: Seals and reinforces the cuticle layer with a defensive shield that strengthens the strand to increase resistance to breakage while infusing hair with vital antioxidants to help prevent free radical penetration and other damage from occurring.
  • Restores: Leaves strands fully restored to their healthy, pre-damaged state. Hair is stronger, smoother, softer and shinier.


Clinically proven to reduce breakage by 95%. (When used with Caviar Repair Rx Instant Recovery Shampoo & Instant Recovery Conditioner). Free of parabens, sulfates, sodium chloride, gluten, artificial color, phthalates.

Apply to freshly cleansed hair, focusing on the lengths. Blow dry as usual. Depending on the severity of damage, use 1-3 times per week.

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

    I absolutely love the Caviar protein creme and have used it for over a year now. I have a lot of super fine hair and this product leaves my hair frizz free, smooth and shiny. This is my hand down favorite leave-in product. So many people comment on how healthy my long hair looks now since I've been addicted to the protein cream. I don't use any other shine or cream products in my hair just this product... love it!

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

      Great for bleached hair to replace protein and smooth and refinish dry straw like hair. Results are instant, but obviously you have to use it daily if you want the smooth results. I have bleached my hair numerous times, and ended up with dry , brittle , straw like hair and nothing worked to smooth down the rough areas except this product. It leaves my hair smooth, shiny and healthy looking. No repair product has worked for me except this stuff. It'd a retexturizing cream so it pretty much resurfaces your hair. Results are instant, and you apply it to clean damp hair. I use this every time I plan on wearing my hair down . if you don't have severely damaged hair, bleached hair, or porous hair from chemical processing, you don't need this. This is for people have stripped the protirn from their hair during chemical process.

            I've used this for several years as a last finishing touch to my wavy going gray hair. After applying hair oil to control frizz, I use this creme for texturizing and long lasting frizz control/moisturizing. It keeps waves crisp but not crunchy and doesn't way down my hair.

                  I recently relaxed my coarse curly hair which caused my hair to feel rubbery and gummy when wet. I was advised that my hair needed a protein treatment. This product was recommended to me by a stylist at Ulta. My hair experienced instant improvement. By the second use it was back to normal and with continued use my hair feels much stronger, moisturized, and much less frizzy than it has in years.

                    Although the price is a bit high this product has eliminated a lot of unnecessary products, which has ultimately saved me money. I use this product as a leave-in/styler for my fine kinky curly type 4 hair by itself and as a leave in for my straightened styles. Each time this product has cut my styling time in half and has improved the over all manageability of my hair. The whole repair line is the best I have ever used. After one use my hair was stronger, softer, and showed no more signs of breakage. I have recommended it to others and have not heard any complaints but many compliments and gratitude.

                          Caviar Repair RX Re-Texturizing Protein Crème is designed specifically to work on damp hair. While it could be applied to dry hair and won't harm the hair, it may not give the results that it is intended to give and may not give as nice a finish. Keep in mind, though that it is not intended for daily use and you only need to use it 1-3 times per week to see fantastic results.

                          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
