Ask a Question
With an exceptionally high level of thermal protection of up to 428 degrees, hair is not only repaired and replenished but also thoroughly protected inside and out. Features strengthening organic bamboo extract and smoothing kendi oil for hair that is stronger, sleeker and noticeably healthier without frizz.

What it is formulated to do:
  • Protects from heat up to 428 degrees
  • Repairs and helps protect against damage caused by high temperature heat styling tools and harsh chemicals
  • Softens hair and locks in moisture to eliminate dryness and brittleness
  • Forms a protective barrier around the hair's outer layer to help prevent breakage, splitting and snapping
  • Helps detangle hair, preventing breakage by making combing easier
  • For all hair types. Safe for hair which is treated with color, keratin smoothing treatment, or perm.
  • Formulated without sulfates, sodium chloride, parabens, gluten, DEA/TEA, phthalates, triclosan, synthetic dye

Key ingredients:
  • Organic bamboo extract: Immediately boosts hair's intrinsic strength, flexibility and sustainability for stronger, healthier, better-performing hair
  • Organic kendi oil: Works to repair and maintain the hair's lipid layer. Protects hair from future damage by infusing it with multiple essential fatty acids (omegas 3,6,9) and anti-oxidant powerhouse tocopherol
  • Kendi Intense Protect Complex: Prevents breakage and provides protection from heat damage up to 428 degrees, which is significantly higher than other products on the market (most protect up to 356 degrees)

(4.2 oz.)
Apply to clean towel dried hair. Comb through and style as desired. Can be followed with other styling products prior to styling.

    Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Breakage Thermal Protectant Spray:

    I have tried hundreds of hair products and this one is amazing! I was looking for something to help with my flyaways and this does so much more than that. My friends keep asking me if I'm getting my hair blown out everyday by my hairdresser because it's so shiny, soft, and sleek. Some of the other reviews said they use 3-4 sprays but I've actually been using a little more than that, my hair is very dry and I cannot wash it daily because of this. I also like that his product doesn't make my hair greasy even if I don't wash it for 2 or 3 days. Awesome! So happy I found it

      If your hair is frizzy, coarse, heavy to dry and needs shine this is the perfect product. I spray it directly on my hand a few pumps and soread all over hair concentrating on my ends. Makes brushing wet hair alot easier on my very thivk coarse hair. Haor glides as I am blow drying and make it shine so beautifully. This is my second buy and love it. A few pumps go a long way.

                  This product is incredible!!! I have very curly hair, but the texture is baby fine and thin so when I straighten my hair I have to be so careful or I can really damage it. This spray is just what I needed. I spray about 3-4 pumps into my hands then work it through my hair, then blow dry and flat iron. I have noticed I have much less fallout and breakage when I use this, and my hair is a lot easier to style. I also like all the nasty ingredients that are left out of this product, I will continue to buy this!

                    Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Breakage Thermal Protectant Spray:

                    I have used the Bamboo Anti-breakage Thermal Protectant Spray for about four months now (one bottle lasts for me about 4 months) and I truly think my hair is more healthy than before I used it. I spray a few spritzes when wet and comb through then let my hair air dry, then I flat iron every morning. It's light, never greasy. Even my hair dresser noted that my hair seemed healthier! I bought it because I'm into natural and paraben-free products, and I cannot recommend it enough. Just bought my second bottle. Oh and it smells amazing!

                        No, Bamboo Smooth Anti-Breakage Thermal Protectant Spray is meant for those with hair that is prone to breakage, those with curly hair who style their hair straight, anyone who styles with heat tools and who chemically treats or relaxes their hair.

                        A:

                        This product softens hair and locks in moisture to eliminate dryness and brittleness while fortifying hair to naturally increase strength and elasticity. For additional moisture, we recommend adding the CAVIAR Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Milk. The CAVIAR line contains caviar extract, which is sourced according to the CITES convention concerning animal and vegetable species protection—to avoid uncontrolled fishing of sturgeons, the eggs used come from a Siberian sturgeon (Acipenser Baerii) breeding farm in France.
