Caviar Repair Rx Re-Texturizing Protein Crème

5.1 oz Item 2252442

Find in Store-

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.

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.

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

    So I have recently gone from a dark brown to ash blonde. My hair has been through alot of processing and was beginning to show the signs of it. I wanted to find a product to combat the signs of damage and after trying several different products, this is the winner. The smell is very citrusy and I love that too. Even though it's an expensive item, it has eliminated the need for other costly hair products. I can justify the cost because I've invested money into this color change and need the right products to keep it looking healthy.

        This is a fabulous product for my very bleach highlighted hair. My hair hasn't been looking healthy lately and I've been getting a lot of breakage. Ive used this product about 5 times now and it makes for a nice, smooth look and it definitely helps minimize breakage. It is a bit heavy so keep it near the ends to not look weighed down.

              Easy to use but be careful not to use too much, it will weigh your hair down. It's a little pricy but I've always like the Alterna line, gentle yet effective for your hair without the hatch chemicals.

                    The jury is still out on this product. I have only used it a few times. I have very thick, coarse, wavy, frizzy, asian hair. It is also color treated and dry and damaged. I put this on the hair shaft from the middle through to the ends, paying extra attention to the ends. I think it is helping to repair the ends but I am still waiting to see how it performs after several more applications. I put it in my hair when I know I won't be going anywhere.

                      It was recommended that the caviar re-texturizing cream be used after the scalp and lengthening exlir for those with thick and coarse hair. I'm African-American and wondering is it essential to use the cream after as recommended or only if my hair is damaged, which it is not?

                        No - all Alterna products can be layered on top of one another but you do not have to use the Lengthening Elixir before the Protein Cream to receive the benefits or vice versa. We recommend using the Protein Cream once a week, even if you hair isn't severely damaged to strengthen and protect the hair from future damage.

                        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.
