FREE Oil Crème Pre-Shampoo Treatment w/any $25 Alterna purchase
A deeply reparative shampoo formulated with strand-building proteins, which reconstruct each individual strand of hair from the inside out to rebuild, resurface and restore hair, leaving strands strong, healthy, smooth, shiny & fully restored. Key product benefits are derived from strand-building proteins, which target damage at the microscopic level, working to repair each individual strand of hair:
  • REBUILDS: This unique ingredient blend delivers essential nutrients to the hair's interior cortex, nourishing to help strengthen strands. Fills in gaps and tears in the damaged cuticle, reconstructing this protective layer to ensure that nutrients do not escape. Cements the newly constructed, exterior cuticle to the interior cortex, ensuring that the scales of the hair lay flat
  • RESURFACES: Seals and reinforces the cuticle layer with a defensive shield that strengthens the strand to increase resistance to breakage while infusing hair with vital antioxidants to help prevent free radical penetration and other damage from occurring.
  • RESTORES: Leaves strands fully restored to their healthy, pre-damaged state. Hair is stronger, smoother, softer and shinier.

(8.5 oz.)
Massage throughout wet hair. Rinse thoroughly. Follow with Caviar Repair Rx Instant Recovery Conditioner for optimal results.

      I absolutely love this product. I have extreme dry, damaged, thick hair and this has been the newest product to restore my hair! It is even more moisturizing than Living Proof. So good even my sil went to buy herself a set. Only con is how expensive it is and the bottle can be a bit tough to squeeze out.

        I love this ! Would love this in the pump style . Have the pump in their other product. Like to alternate between the two and the pumps are so much easier to use then the top of this one. It still is a great conditioning shampoo.

              Comments about Alterna Caviar Repair Rx Instant Recovery Shampoo:

              I have been using alterna products for almost 2 years now and in the last year the caviar line exclusively. It has transformed my hair from short brittle damaged strands to long enough to pull back into a bun, ponytail, and other styles I thought I would never be able to wear. I haven't changed anything else in my routine, I'm still a heat junkie and usually because of my heritage which includes African and Italian descent, the amount of heat I use to straighten and manage my curly dry hair would spell disaster in the form of breakage and split ends. Those days are over! Thank you alterna and thank you for carrying their line, ulta!

                      After using a very high-end line of hair products for years, an Ulta Salon consultant urged me to try the Alterna line. I have fallen in love with the Cavier shampoo, the Bamboo heat protectant and the 48 hr Sustainable Volume. I have been able to eliminate 3 post shampoo styling products by using the 48 hr Sustainable Volume! Amazing!! My fine, color treated 60 year old hair now has shine and volume that lasts for days!!!

                          Caviar Repair Rx Instant Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner are designed to provide strand-building proteins to hair that shows significant signs of damage such as brittleness, dryness and split ends. These strand-building proteins will help to rebuild, resurface and restore each damaged strand to prevent future breakage and give healthy look and feel back to the hair. If you are experiencing dryness and breakage (such as split ends), Caviar Repair RX Instant Recovery Shampoo would be a great option!

                          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.
