Most Helpful Positive Review Absolutely, Positively Delivers!
I was skeptical about this conditioner's promise to "transform brittle, dull hair." My hair is wavy, thick, coarse, and frizzy. It's naturally dry, but the styling tools I have to use to tame it dry it out even more. I've tried so many types of conditioners and restorative treatments, from homemade remedies to drugstore brands to expensive designer brands.
This conditioner, however, WORKS. It has transformed my hair into a soft, shiny, silky mane of manageable waves. My hair has NEVER been this soft and easy to deal with. I've been able to cut out a lot of styling time (and damage!) because of these improvements.
This conditioner would probably be way too much for someone with fine hair, but for coarse, dry hair, it is a miracle.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not sure how i feel
The drying alcohols are listed at the bottom and after one use, I have not noticed any issues, but i'm concerned about long term health of the hair. These drying alcohols are used to help the products evaporate, however prolonged use is very unhealthy for the hair. I'm also very upset that these were not listed on Ulta.com under the ingredients, as I would have never purchased.

One of the best conditioners out there. Love that it's sulfate free so I can use it on my color treated hair. Is pricy but worth it because it leaves my hair soft and healthy.
Love this conditioner

My normal shampoo and conditioner just was no longer working for me. I searched and searched and tried this Alterna product - it has really made a huge difference in my hair. In just a few I could see a difference
This is the only line I will ever use!
Mary from Montrose PA
This line has transformed my hair!! And cruelty free, which is all I will use! LOOVEEE!
Victoria from IL
I have been a fan of Alterna products for years. Caviar products work great. My color treated hair has been in great shape since using this conditioner. I am very fragrance sensitive and this has a light scent that I love.
I would for sure buy again!!!

Left red bumps all over my scalp and hair fell out
Brittany from Seattle, WA
I do not recommend this product because I had red bumps all over my scalp that were itchy, my hair fell out, and left my hair extremely dry and straw like. I have fine, thin hair that has not been chemically treated in over a year. I bought both the shampoo and conditioner set for this product, and that's the only change in my hair care regime. After switching to a different shampoo and conditioner I didn't have any of the problems mentioned. 10/10 don't recommend.
Transformed My Hair
SouthernK311 from Fort Wayne, IN
I've had very thin hair all of my life, and it has become dry and damaged from coloring. Tried this line and could not believe the change. It's a little pricey but worth it.
Julie from CT
Super product worth the price! Perfect for long hair.
Best conditioner ever! Must try with shampoo!!
Jacqueline from Mississippi
I just reviewed the shampoo! First of all, had I not gotten " free samples" from my online hair color site I use, I probably wouldn't have known about this line. IT'S AMAZING!! My hair has never been so soft, shiny, frizz- free and looks revived! Even my daughter remarked how good my hair looked! I live in a humid, hot climate. My hair is color treated with highlights and can get dry and damaged easily and frizz- up. This has transformed my hair literally! I will never go back to any other brands and I have tried them all!

I absolutely love the Caviar anti-aging line. Pair this with the shampoo for soft, smooth, wonderful hair. It works great on dry, damaged, frizzy hair. Top it off with the Caviar 10 in 1 CC cream for great manageability! If you are a Monat user, switch to this and forget the auto-ship!
JM from Washington, DC
Like the shampoo, this conditioner is nothing special. It isn't very moisturizing, so I don't think it's worth the money. I don't have overly damaged hair, I don't color it and it is pretty healthy... and somehow my ends are dry after using this. My husband doesn't like the smell of it and says it reminds him of salt/pepper on eggs ... luckily it doesn't linger. If u have the money and you're stubborn and wanna try it for yourself, I feel u. That was me. Something about caviar just makes ya feel boujee.
I won't buy this again.
Kyakoan from Bend, Oregon
Wish I would not have purchased this. I bought the shampoo, conditioner and cc cream. I have wavy/curly hair that is somewhat dry. This product leaves my hair feeling dryer than it usually does and frizzy. The smell is not the best either. Quite disappointed.
Product lover from Denver, CO
Eliminates tangles and moisturizes. Does not make my hair greasy like other moisturizing shampoos
Glad I bought it
Cindy from Salem, Oregon
I read reviews in favor of and against and really wasn't sure what to expect. I got nervous when I read that it smelled bad. I think it smells pleasant actually. To me it's a scent SIMILAR to Grapefruit, but very mild. I didn't find it off-putting at all. I didn't smell it in my hair after my shower.
I noticed after one use that my hair was very soft! I read a review that said it dried their hair out but that was far from my experience, my hair is very soft. I do think this is pricey, but I did notice a difference. I've used and tried less expensive brands but this conditioner DID give immediate results. Less expensive brands didn't give these results. I wish we could do a follow up review after using the product over a longer period of time also so I can see if there is a significant difference after using it for a longer time. I would buy this again for the results if it was in my budget.
I'm in my mid 40's and my hair is colored blonde with bleach and toner.
Hair loving when used with CC cream and shampoo
41Wanders from New York
Don't cut corners buy the shampoo and CC cream too, you won't regret it. I got all three during the sale and love these products. I have thick, dry hair and these products are a game changer for me. My hair is soft, silky, clean, smooth and feels amazing. My hair stays clean for 2-3 days and smells great.
Lily from Pembroke Pines, FL
I bought this line because of the name thinking that I was investing in my hair. I was thoroughly disappointed. This Caviar line made my hair tangle even more and fall out as I tried to comb it. My hair had a rough texture after rinsing. Also, the bottle isn't user friendly. Don't waste your money like I did.
Darla from Northern colorado
Smells strong but it's okay because you can still smell it days later but not as strong! Really softens the hair!
Sgoddess28 from Sacramento
I currently use the joico shampoo in the gold bottle and it works good for my bleached hair. The price I paid for the size of this bottle is not worth it because the quality was equivalent to a drug store shampoo! The smell isn't great, I actually liked this conditioner more than I liked the shampoo.
Spare your hair
Aflaherty95 from Virginia Beach, VA
I used this product for over year in conjunction with the shampoo. When I bought a refill at the beginning of this year, I noticed my hair felt dryer than normal (weird right-- its targeted for moisture). It was so dry I had to do a hot oil treatment and an olive oil treatment. Once I washed my hair with this product again It felt like straw. I compared the new bottle with the old bottle of product and noticed a completely different change in the formula. :( so sad because It used to be such a great product
Color is different
Alyx from Indiana
I ordered a small bottle of this in the store a couple of months ago, and the conditioner was a lovely silky lavender color. It worked great and made my hair so smooth and silky. I went ahead and ordered the large size online, but the conditioner was creamy and white and didn't work nearly as well. I thought maybe I got a bad batch, so I ordered another large bottle. It's also creamy and white. Has anyone else had this problem? Where's the silky lavender-colored conditioner?! I don't understand.
An over 50 product love affair :)
Sandra from Ontario, Canada
I have been going through some medical issues which we all know, can cause havoc on the hair, & the last 2 years, I have been dealing with dry, brittle, no body, & flyaway & static hair....I have tried almost every high end brand, & this gem, has been the only conditioner that actually does what it says, and does it better, than anybody else!!!
The best shampoo anywhere!
Maryland chick from Maryland
I have been using this shampoo for a couple of years. My hair is healthy, soft, shiny and wonderfully conditioned. I also love the smell!
CJ from Scottsdale AZ
I have fine, dry, color treated hair and this conditioner does a good job without weighing my hair down. It does add some moisture and keeps hair looking healthy. I feel it can cause some build up if I use it every day, so I alternate with Redken extreme conditioner which I also really like.
I really like it
Sbladen from Clackamas, OR
I have been using this with the shampoo and the CC cream. My hair feels soft and healthy
