      I like the product. I have tried other versions and I keep coming back to this one. I liked when you had the promotion and you gave the sample size away.I am going away this summer and I have to bring the big tube.

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

        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.

                    I received this as a sample and have only used it once, but I am already buying another! My hair is curly and long and I live in a dry climate- this made a huge difference. My hair felt smoother and healthier, love this stuff. Only wish it was a little less expensive, but obviously that's not stopping me.

                      I have long, dry, thick hair, and this cream helps smooth it out and lock in moisture. I also use the Alterna Caviar shampoo & conditioner, but once a week I cleanse/clarify my hair with baking soda & condition with vinegar ("no-poo"). On those days, I make sure to use this after showering, and apply to my wet hair and concentrate on the ends. I let it air dry, and in the morning my hair is SO soft, shiny, and healthy looking! This is fantastic as a leave in cream. A little goes a long way (even for me with my thick, long hair) so that helps make up for the steep price tag!

                              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.

                            Is this product safe for color treated hair? I have a lot of gray at my roots, my hair is colored dark blonde. 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!

                              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
