Comments about Alterna Bamboo Volume 48 Hour Sustainable Volume Spray:

I'm just not seeing a significant change in volume - even for less than 48 hours. Probably would have given this a kinder review if Alterna didn't make such outrageous claims with this product.

Comments about Alterna Bamboo Volume 48 Hour Sustainable Volume Spray:

When I was coloring my hair at Ulta they showed me how to use this product..spraying only on the roots. I did the same at home but my hair was not soft. It did seem to work slightly though. I first put my styling products on my hair the pick up sections on the top of my head and spray roots then diffuse. I will continue with the product but not rebuy.

          Before drying hair after cleansing, spray all over. Adds volume for thinning hair.

              I have very straight, fine hair...but a lot of it. This product is great for adding moveable height/volume at the crown. I usually wash my hair everyday...but if I don't, this product does work for 48 hours like advertised. Highly recommended. I use the shampoo, conditioner and the texturing cream in this line!

                  I discovered this through a beauty sub box and I fell in love. I can't live without it now. It makes my dull, flat, fine hair bouncy and full with only a few sprays. It's amazing.

                  Comments about Alterna Bamboo Volume 48 Hour Sustainable Volume Spray:

                  I have very, very fine hair that is also very blonde. As a result I've spent my whole adult life looking for a product that would give me volume without being greasy, weighing my hair down or, most commonly, gives volume by destroying my hair. Any bad product shows up on my hair so easily. Needless to say, when I tried this product I didn't have high hopes.
                  Boy was I wrong! It may have taken me until the age of 48 to find this product but I actually think it was worth it. I love it and will NEVER use anything else.

                    Comments about Alterna Bamboo Volume 48 Hour Sustainable Volume Spray:

                    I am beyond disappointed in this product. It was pretty expensive and yet I hated it. Not only did it NOT add any volume to my fine hair, but every time I tried it I had a terrible hair day. My hair was flatter than not even using anything. I don't know if it weighed it down too much or what. I tried it 4-5 different times and then had to just throw it away. Complete waste of money.

                    • Q:

                      Does this product have any thermal protection? I just used the bamboo thermal protection spray and mousse together and finished with the caviar anti aging extra hold hair spray. The three gave me some volume but I wanted a little more volume more hold.can anyone recommend products I could use in the alterna line for volume, hold, flexibility and shine. I have fine/normal color treated hair. It tends to get flat and a bit oily.

                        A:

                        Alterna Bamboo Volume 48 Hour Sustainable Volume Spray does provide heat protection benefits; however, it is recommended to couple this product with the BAMBOO Smooth Thermal Protectant Spray (Item # 2238061), which will help to provide 428 degree heat protection and an 87% reduction in breakage, and then layer in the 48 Hour Sustainable Volume Spray right before blow drying to add a 105% increase in volume that will last 48 hours or longer – this will provide optimum thermal protection and styling benefits. Because ALTERNA products are so lightweight and absorb so thoroughly, even when layering products, they are far less likely to cause your hair to go flat. If you feel like you still want more volume and hold, you can also try the Caviar Amplifying Mousse (Item #: 2110828). We hope this helps!

                      Will this product work well in conjunction with Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil Pure Treatment Oil? Or will the weight of the oil negate the volumizing effects?

                        It is fine to combine the Kendi Oil with the 48 Hr. Vol. Spray. They will not negate each other, they are meant to be mix and match!

                      does this product dry out fine hair?

                        A:

                        No, this product does not have a drying effect, and it is ideal to add volume to fine hair. It leaves hair soft, never stiff or crunchy. 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.
