Comments about Alterna Bamboo Color Hold + Vibrant Color Shampoo:

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.

      This smells sooooo good!! I can't really tell the difference. It is a thicker formula than most shampoo's.

        Comments about Alterna Bamboo Color Hold + Vibrant Color Shampoo:

        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.

              Comments about Alterna Bamboo Color Hold + Vibrant Color Shampoo:

              When my stylist recommended a sulfate free shampoo to preserve my color I decided to try this for a few reasons. I know that Alterna has quality products but the main reason I tried this is the UV protection. My hair tends to fade after exposure to the sun so this formula seemed like it might help. So far I really like it. The scent is pleasant and it leaves my hair soft but not limp. I was a little put off by the price, but after using it a few times, I realized I don't need much product at all for my medium length hair - it's very concentrated. Time will tell if it preserves my color longer than other shampoo but I will continue to use it and the conditioner. It may pay for itself if my color stays longer than usual.

              I love this shampoo, at first I thought it didn't smell good and in the shower it doesn't give the texture you get at the end, but once I towel dry my hair it's so soft and smooth. It leaves my hair shiny, oil free and healthy looking.

                This is great for daily use without drying out my hair. I think my hair is shiner since I started using it as well.
