          I have treated color hair which needs to be hydrated and this shampoo did not fill that need. After using it for a couple of weeks,(twice a week) my hair was dry and full of electriucity. Am returning this shampoo and conditioner. Does make the hair shine and has agrat smell

            Comments about Alterna Bamboo Color Hold + Vibrant Color Shampoo:

            I purchased this after having my hair professionally colored and cut by one of my favorite stylists. He gave me the best cut and color he's ever done and so when he recommended this shampoo (and it's matched conditioner) I decided to try it. It smelled good.

            So a day or so later (I like to give my deep red time to cure before shampooing), I washed and conditioned my hair with this product and I just absolutely loved the effect! While using a moderate amount of shampoo (maybe a silver dollar size in the palm), at first it wouldn't lather enough, but I found if I worked it around my head a bit more it would lather up quite nicely and I didn't need to shampoo a second time. Followed up with a quarter size of the conditioner and I've really enjoyed how this product moisturizes my hair, adds body and shine yet somehow doesn't make it oily. I have to go three days before it will get oily. And THIS is why I'm going to buy one of their dry shampoos, to make it go even longer, to help my color last longer. OH... and my color still looks pretty good more than 6 weeks later! Yes, it's dull, but it's still there as well as the shine. Love the smell.

            I style my hair with Alterna's Bamboo Shine Silk-Sleek Brilliance Cream. It really has a gorgeous effect on my straight, fine hair. It doesn't weigh it down or get greasy and seems to help quite a bit with winter time flyaways. Love the smell on this product too. Nice to have my new favorite product line!

            I searched and tried many products to help extend my color, but generally by 3-wks gray was very noticable around ears and forehead. I'm now at 5-wks using this product and gray is minimal...I'm hooked! I use the shampoo and condition.

            Comments about Alterna Bamboo Color Hold + Vibrant Color Shampoo:

            Background: I bought this product two months ago. I had just recently gotten my hair professionally dyed a deep red color. I was getting ready to go on vacation and I knew I would be in the pool and in the ocean a lot. In general hair dyed red will fade quickly.

            The Good: In general the this shampoo helped me maintain my color the entire 11 day trip! I cannot say enough good things about how well my color was maintained. It barely faded at all. Even though this product doesn't lather well, I felt it was really getting my hair clean.

            The Bad: I didn't like how my hair felt while using this product. It was dry and kind of lifeless. At first I thought this was because I was in the ocean and pool. However when I came home and continued using the product it still felt the same. Before using this product I was using a hair mask once a week to help keep my hair moisturized and healthy. I now an using it several times a week. The price was high for something that I wasn't on love with.

            If you are looking to use a shampoo that will help keep you color lasting for along time I recommend it. But if you already have dry hair you may want to skip this one.

                  I decide to try this to see if it helped protect my color and highlights. I had already been using the Alterna Caviar which I loved. This definitely helps keep my color longer and keeps the sun from oxidizing the highlights. I have medium brown hair so if I don't use this the color can get too red. This shampoo works great. I use it daily with the conditioner. My hair is clean, soft, shiny and healthy looking. I also love the bottle. It's a great design the way the shampoo is dispensed from the top. There is no waste and you can't spill it. This shampoo costs more than a typical brand but I find it well worth the money. A little goes a long way so the bottle lasts me 2-3 months.

                        Will this shampoo help with my dry scalp? I have yet to find a shampoo that has color protection but also will help with dandruff.

                        I just dyed my hair a berry/wine/deep plum color, will this product help preserve my color? Or is this product better suited for someone with a more "natural" hair color?
