    Comments about Alterna Caviar Repair Rx Instant Recovery Shampoo:

    Purchased shampoo and conditioner the day after using samples provided by another retailer and blown away by the textural improvements to my hair -- smoother, softer, and shinier. The scent is fantastically fresh with notes of citrus. Though it did not miraculously cure any split ends, it certainly help to disguise them. Hair feels smoother before applying the conditioner -- amazing.

      I have THICK hair and decided to go blonde for the summer. I got to the perfect shade of blonde but with that came the damage/breakage to my hair. This shampoo has worked wonders, by the second wash I noticed a HUGE difference in my hair even while wet.

        My hair is thin but I have a lot of it. I'm a brunette but have started turning grey. The grey hair is very coarse and wavy and it's made my hair seem dryer overall. I tried this shampoo and my hair feels so much better. Very pleased and it takes a very small amount so the price is worth it.

            When I ordered the product I didn't realize the bottle was so small. I guess I needed to read how many ounces I was getting. I was very disappointed for the price I paid for the amount I got. However after one use of the shampoo and crème rinse I could tell a big change in my hair. The split ends improved immediately and were gone after a couple uses. I love the it however for the price I'm not so sure I can continue to purchase unless I absoulty need to improve my split ends.

                When I moved to Germany my hair was healthy and shiny and now my hair is so dry and damaged from the water here. I have been searching for a year a shampoo and conditioner that will softened my hair again. I know this shampoo is pricey but it is well worth the money. My hair is so soft and shiny again.

                    Comments about Alterna Caviar Repair Rx Instant Recovery Shampoo:

                    I've never written a review before, but after about a week of using this stuff, I felt I had to share. My hair is naturally pretty straight and I've been dying it red for a couple years now. If you know anything about upkeep with red hair, you know how difficult it is. A couple months ago, I went for an extremely high lift color called magenta and it was hard to keep from fading, so i was constantly retouching it. I noticed after a month or so that my hair was extremely dry and damaged so I looked to Ulta for some help. I found the Alterna Caviar Lengthening Repair Serum. I started with that and was reasonably impressed with the results so I decided to go for the shampoo and conditioner as well. Its been about a week now and my hair has never felt better. The whole line is expensive (about thirty dollars for each). The bottles are also pretty small for the price, however, you only need a tiny bit. I used to go through a bottle of shampoo and conditioner about every two weeks. With this, I think it'll last me over a month, maybe longer. Overall, I highly recommend it to anyone with damaged or colored hair.

                      This product is amazing, but I'm very very disappointed with the bottle, it's so hard to get the product out and sometimes I split on the floor and I get so mad because it's so expensive to waste it. they really need to redesign this bottle because for that reason I'll never buy it again. Believe me it's very very hard.

                          A:

                          Both shampoos are similar in that they strengthen hair against breakage. As you stated, Alterna Caviar Repair Rx Instant Recovery Shampoo is sulfate-free and a wonderful option for hair that is chemically- and color-treated. Alterna's formula also features proven results: Alterna Caviar Repair Rx Instant Recovery Shampoo prevents 95% of breakage (vs. a non-conditioning shampoo). Additionally, in a consumer trial, after just one use, 9 out of 10 users saw improved strength, frizz control, softness & shine. We recommend reading the product ratings and reviews for both shampoos at ULTA.com.
