    Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Frizz Shampoo:

    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.

      Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Frizz Shampoo:

      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.

        Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Frizz Shampoo:

        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.

              Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Frizz Shampoo:

              I have tried so many shampoos without success. My hair is fine and all shampoos leave greasy buildup that drives me nuts. I have to wash my hair everyday or else my hair looks greasy and messy. This shampoo really works and my hair looks clean the second day. (This is important when traveling or camping. I no longer have to wear a hat to cover the mess.). Just wish this shampoo came in other scents. It's not a bad scent, just boring. I miss rosemary and mint.

                This shampoo is incredible. The smell is wonderful and my hair is left shiny, silky and frizz free. I absolutely love this product. For those saying it does not lather as much as they would like. Well, it is free of the chemicals that create a ton of lather. It works just as good, better in fact, then the super bubbly shampoos. Enjoy!!!
