Caviar Repair Rx Re-Texturizing Protein Crème

Item #: 2252442

Ask a Question
Caviar Repair Rx Re-Texturizing Protein Crème is a deeply restorative leave in treatment. Formulated with strand-building proteins to help restructure strands, filling in gaps & tears in the cuticle and strengthening the hair to protect from breakage & future damage. Transforms previously coarse hair, significantly improving smoothness, texture & manageability. 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.

Clinically proven to reduce breakage by 95%. (When used with Caviar Repair Rx Instant Recovery Shampoo & Instant Recovery Conditioner). Free of parabens, sulfates, sodium chloride, gluten, artificial color, phthalates.

(5.1 oz.)
Apply to freshly cleansed hair, focusing on the lengths. Blow dry as usual. Depending on the severity of damage, use 1-3 times per week.

        I recently relaxed my coarse curly hair which caused my hair to feel rubbery and gummy when wet. I was advised that my hair needed a protein treatment. This product was recommended to me by a stylist at Ulta. My hair experienced instant improvement. By the second use it was back to normal and with continued use my hair feels much stronger, moisturized, and much less frizzy than it has in years.

          Comments about Alterna Caviar Repair Rx Re-Texturizing Protein Crème:

          Although the price is a bit high this product has eliminated a lot of unnecessary products, which has ultimately saved me money. I use this product as a leave-in/styler for my fine kinky curly type 4 hair by itself and as a leave in for my straightened styles. Each time this product has cut my styling time in half and has improved the over all manageability of my hair. The whole repair line is the best I have ever used. After one use my hair was stronger, softer, and showed no more signs of breakage. I have recommended it to others and have not heard any complaints but many compliments and gratitude.

                        I have very long thick hair and recently went from black hair to light brown/blonde balayage. After TWO color corrections, bleach, and toning - My hair was in bad shape. I went into to Ulta looking for a product to find something to make my hair at least more manageable. While I didn't receive much help from the store associates I was able to come across this product on my own. I am SO happy I did. I've used it twice and already see a major difference.

                        It is a little bit pricey but so worth it!

                        Thank you Alterna for saving my hair<3

                        Thank you

                          I recently over did my hair with dying and highlights the passed few months. It was to the point where my hair was so dry and breaking. I picked this product up yesterday along with the Rx Shampoo and Conditioner. My hair has never felt so soft. In just one use my hair feels like it did before I every died it. Love love love!!

                              Unfortunately, I had to return it. One use seemed to suck the moisture out of my hair and made it more dry and brittle. It looked dull and lifeless also. I adore the caviar oil by Alterna, but this was a no-go. At this price point, I expected to be wowed and I was let down.

                                  No it should not weigh down the hair. Apply a dime size throughout the hair 1-3 times a week for optimum results.

                                  Caviar Repair RX Re-Texturizing Protein Crème is designed specifically to work on damp hair. While it could be applied to dry hair and won't harm the hair, it may not give the results that it is intended to give and may not give as nice a finish. Keep in mind, though that it is not intended for daily use and you only need to use it 1-3 times per week to see fantastic results.

Some conditioning products that are protein can strip away the color within a few uses and my grey pops right out. Would love to order, so a prompt answer would be soooo appreciated!

                                  We recommend shampooing and conditioning, then applying this product to towel dried hair.

                                  Yes, we recommend applying this product first, then layering your blowout spray over it for best results.

                                  This product works great as a reparative leave-in treatment for dry, damaged hair and can be used 1-3 days a week, depending on the severity of damage. It is formulated with Strand-Building Proteins to help rebuild hair and improve texture and manageability.

                                  For further hair repair, we recommend a weekly hair mask like Alterna CAVIAR Repair RX Masque (Item #: 2251344), which contains super-concentrated microbeads containing the same reparative Strand-Building Proteins for a larger dose of treatment: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod4610209
