      Comments about Alterna Bamboo Volume Plumping Strand Expand:

      Bought this product in hopes of finding "THE" shampoo/conditioner for my flat thin hair. Product was actually ok but the smell! OMG - I had to rewash my hair that same evening due to the lingering smell. It was making me nauseous! I bought another Alterna product after this purchase and am extremely pleased!

          I tried this because I got a sample from Glossybox and love it. It really works for my fine straight hair, gives it a nice amount of volume and I can get away with washing every other day without my hair looking greasy. I ordered a full size bottle from Ulta.

            I have thin hair, so I'm always on the lookout for new products that promise to make my limp locks fuller. I tried this three mornings in a row and it simply did not work for me. I went back to using the Bamboo volumizing mist -- now that's a great product!

                This product works and I have purchased it many times. Without getting specific, however, I wish it were not so expensive, given that I use it daily and it goes fast.

                    I am always looking for a product that plumps my hair. I really like this product for ease of use/travels easier than a spray/ I have gone 3 days without shampooing. Definitely recommend anyone try if you have fine hair.

                      I was skeptical when I saw the recent celebrity endorsements, but Katie Holmes has backed a fantastic product. The entire Bamboo Volumizing line is great. I love it because it is economical. The products may cost more than a drugstore brand similar product, but I was using four or five products to achieve what the Volumizing spray and creme do now.

                        My hair is very fine with no body and gets greasy easily. This makes my hair fluffy with volume and not greasy at all.

                            This product is sulfate-free and sodium chloride-free, so it is very gentle and won't dry out hair. It is indicated for use on fine hair, as it works to add volume by plumping every hair strand. The key ingredients are:

                            Organic Bamboo Extract: Immediately boosts hair's strength, flexibility & sustainability for stronger, healthier hair.

                            Organic Maca Root: Energizes hair from the inside out to improve volume on three dimensions: fullness, thickness and lift.

                            Color Hold: Alterna's proprietary ingredient that infuses hair with plant-derived melanin for extreme color protection and prevents color wash out. Protects hair from UVA, UVB & visible light including artificial light sources. Rinse resistant.

                        • Q:

                          I've just recently purchased the 48 hour Volume product and learned that it requires heat to activate the product and obtain the effects. Does this product require heat as well?

                          Thank you

                            No, this product is not heat activated. Apply evenly from root to tip through towel dried hair and style as desired, with or without heat styling tools.
