Kiss Split Ends Bye Bye

Pros

  • Easy To Use

  • Smells great

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Dry/Damaged Hair

    Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil:

    I started using this product every time after I got out of the shower and it has done wonders for my hair! I normally apply a few drops to the ends of my hair after towel drying. I either leave the product in to air dry or blow dry and style my hair like usual. It leaves my ends looking smooth and moisturized! I have not had a haircut in over 6 months and have no split ends in sight! That never happens for me, love this will continue to use after every shower!

          Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil:

          This didn't really do anything for me. I gave it 2 chances and I had a ton of flyaways both times and my hair was still somewhat frizzy. I don't like the feel of it either it feels greasy when you first put it on. Plan on returning.

            I love this!!! I use this as a leave in! I do have very long, fine chemically dependent hair. On damp hair it's lightweight, super soft, and keeps frizz away. After I get my highlights, I will saturate my hair and sleep in it, as a mask. Sooo good!!

                Bamboo is a great product but for me this one is too heavy.

                  This stuff....I never want to live without it again. If your hair stylist always uses the razor to thin your hair and tells you that you have enough hair on your head for 4 people....this stuff is for you! I use this everywhere but my roots and it keeps my hair de-frizzed, tangle free, and accepting to styling for days after using (I only wash my hair 2x a week). You NEED this in your life.

                      Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil:

                      I LOVE this oil! I just started using it and notice a huge difference--my ends feel much more hydrated and silky, and overall my hair is much smoother. I use a tiny bit (mostly just use whats on the outside of the dropper) and apply it when my hair is wet to damp, concentrating on the ends and use what's left everywhere else. I also think it's great the day after you wash applied to ends to give them some added silkiness.
