Comments about Alterna Bamboo Volume 48 Hour Sustainable Volume Spray:

Doesn't make hair stiff or sticky or cause flakes. Works great! Redken has a volume mousse for really fine hair that maybe works a little better but it also dries hair out and causes breakage after awhile. Bamboo product keeps my hair healthy looking and shiny and full.

    Comments about Alterna Bamboo Volume 48 Hour Sustainable Volume Spray:

    I didn't get the 100Plus thickness, they claim. Almost makes it limp but does have bounce and feels very soft
    if youre looking for more thickness I wouldn't recommend it. For people with normal hair theyd probably like it.

                  Does this product help with setting and retaining curls from curling irons? I have very straight hair that I curl with a curling iron. Most modern products seem to be designed to straighten hair curly hair. I need to curl straight hair. Would it help retain curl for 48 hours, as well as volume?

                    A:

                    The Bamboo Volume 48 Hour Sustainable Volume Spray is designed to be used on damp hair, prior to blow drying for optimal results. It may help to retain curl but it isn't really designed to do that. It will however give you great volume to start your style. You could also try the Caviar Perfect Iron Spray which will protect against high heat, humidity and will also provide some hold and "style memory" to help you achieve a defined curl.

                    Yes, you can apply Alterna Bamboo Volume 48 Hour Sustainable Volume Spray at the root to get added lift at the crown or throughout the hair for maximum volume.

                  My hair is fine & thin and tangles very easily after washing. I always use a leave-in conditioner after showering to help comb out my wet hair. Would I use this product prior to the leave-in conditioner or after? Also, can this be used on dry hair as well?

                    We recommend using this after applying a leave-in conditioner and directly before blow drying to maximize volume potential.

                    While this may give a little bit of a volumizing effect when air drying, BAMBOO Volume 48-Hour Sustainable Volume Spray is really meant to be used before blow drying the hair to get the best results.

                • 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!

                    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!

                    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.
