        Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Frizz Shampoo:

        I just started using the shampoo and conditioner. I have very thick, fine straight hair that tends to be frizzy on the ends and greasy at the roots. I am washing and conditioning about with this product every 3-4 days with a bit of dry shampoo on the roots the last day. So far, I'm sold, it keeps my hair from looking frizzy and triangular shaped without weighing it down. Love it!!! FYI, I don't color or chemically treat my hair so I can't speak to how it performs In that aspect.

              this was recommended by the Ulta stylist to preserve the Keratin staightening treatment. Hair frizzed out more - will not use again. I will be returning the unused portion.

                Tried a "sample bag" from my hairstylist and loved the shampoo & conditioner (which were in small tubes). When shampoo was gone, I bought the 8.5 fl oz bottle (had conditioner left over from "sample bag"). Although this shampoo is quite "pricey", it is worth it. I love the way it makes my hair feel, and it does control the frizzies (which I have wavy, curly hair), and it also is safe for color treated hair!! It has a good smell and lathers very well. Great product...just wish the price was less expensive.

                  I use to buy shampoo at the local grocery store. However I got a sample of alterna shampoo and conditioner and haven't put it down since! I have very dry dyed hair. This product makes my hair manageable without making my fine hair greasy. It has cut my straightening time in half because my hair doesn't dry in a huge frizzy mess anymore. They sell trial size I highly recommend giving it a try!

                  I have thick,wavy/curly hair that I straighten daily. During the summer, the humidity where I live is around 80% and this product does a great job keeping my hair under control. While it does not lather very well, it still gets my hair clean and leave my hair soft and manageable.

                    I have super thick dry hair and eczema; Unfortunately, shampoos with heavy scents make my scalp itch. This shampoo and conditioner made it not itch and my hair did not feel heavy! On the other hand, after using half the bottle my hair is pretty dry. I want soft shinny hair and this product doesn't give me that. If you have oily hair this might be good for you though! I use anti-frizz conditioner and shine shampoo from this brand.
