To preface, I live in an area of high elevation and dry climate, both of which has wrecked havoc on my already dry and increasing fine/thin hair. I was thrilled to try the Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Multiplying Volume Line. *This review is focused solely on the SHAMPOO, but I also have the accompanying conditioner which I have used with and without the shampoo for full comparison.
Foremost, the bottle was unique in how it dispenses the product— the top is twisted to allow the shampoo to be squeezed out. I felt it allowed me more control of how much product is released, so I liked this distinguishing feature. I felt the smell was pleasing and subtle; the texture was pleasant. After repeated uses, I found that my hair did feel softer after each wash. It seemed to lift it somehow so that the illusion of volume was created. I did not notice much difference when used by itself or with the same line of conditioner.
In short, I quite liked this shampoo. I felt that the improvements it provided in boosting the volume and hydration to my hair was subtle, but still impactful enough that I plan to continue using this product. I would recommend!
I have very fine straight flat hair and I need a shampoo and conditioner that helps gives my hair some body and volume. This shampoo helped a lot with giving my hair the volume I needed. I was able to achieve the look I wanted with this shampoo unlike other shampoos that leave my hair flat and unmanageable. The only thing I didn't like about this shampoo was the bottles they look great but I had a really hard time trying to squeeze the shampoo out of the bottles. All in all I liked the shampoo and I would buy it again.

I use every other day. Volume lasts!

I absolutely love this shampoo. I used it with the Caviar Anti-Aging Multiplying Volume Conditioner and Oh My God!!! When I get new products I first use them by themselves so I can give a good review (so without any other products, leave in conditioners, hair serums, etc.) I have recently dyed my hair back to back a couple of different colors so my hair has been feeling very dry every time I wash it, but not at all with this shampoo and conditioner! My hair is the softest it's ever been. My hair is also long, but very flat, my hair has never had volume no matter how many different products I've tried but this definitely adds volume! I will definitely be repurchasing!

I use this every other day and dry shampoo in between. It works for me.

I used to be loyal to Alterna products but stopped last year. I started back and chose to try the Volumizing shampoo and conditioner. I'm shocked out how dried it has made my hair, even after a fresh cut. I can barely get a comb through it.

I wanted to give a ##3 because of the packaging.I have used this a few years ago really liked it.But the packaging is so bad esp if they want to cater to older women.The twist form is hard to manage plus to dispense the shampoo you squeeze the bottle.When you are older you have arthritic hands,carpal tunnel & many more so the company should take this into consideration.

Alterna changed the formula. I do know that sodium chloride, which was added, makes me itch. I always try to find a shampoo that does not have that in it. The old formula did not have sodium chloride. Also, because I do my hair in the shower, it makes my skin on my body itch also!

I love this volumizing shampoo. It was recommended to me by my sister. It is rather pricey but worth it as my hair is much more manageable.

The absolute best shampoo on the market! Yes it's a little pricey but well worth the money
Dixie from Bowling Green, KY
I love this shampoo and have used it for about twenty years. My hair is very difficult and this shampoo is the only one that works consistently. I order it in the largest size so that I will not run out.

My fine hair has started to feel youthful again... light, vibrant and bouncy has never felt so amazing.

I bought both the shampoo and conditioner in this line , the more I have used it the dryer my hair has become. The shampoo completely tangles my fine hair and I have to use double the conditioner to work through the knots. So I had to purchase an additional bottle of conditioner. For the price point this has ruined my hair. No conditioning benefits and I leave the conditioner on for about 10 minutes with each use.

I decided to give this shampoo a try because of the great reviews. I have fine hair, but a lot of it. I've been using Living Proof Full Shampoo for years. This shampoo has done nothing for my hair except to make it limp and weighed down. I literally have to wash it every day when using this product. Normally I wash every other day. I wouldn't recommend this if you're airway in love with the shampoo you use.

This was a splurge, but my hair is flat and thinning, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I can't believe what a difference this shampoo (and matching conditioner) make! My hair has much more volume whether I air dry, diffuse, or blow it out. It smells great too! I was nervous to buy it because I saw other reviews mention how it dries their hair out. I wouldn't say this shampoo dries my hair out, but it doesn't feel as soft or limp as it normally does? It does feel different when my hair is dry, but not in a bad way at all. I'm also finding that my hair doesn't look greasy on day two, which historically is a big issue for me. I will continue to buy this set.

I bought the shampoo and conditioner and I honestly can't wait until I finish these bottles. I have fine/medium straight hair and since I started using this my hair has become sooo knotty underneath in the back. I have never had this problem before.
Love to shop all the time from South Charleston WV
It was on sale and I had points so I decided to try it and I really like it
It does give you volume I have fine hair and the bamboo volume spray works great with or by itself
Hairgod from New Jersey
Just makes hair feel completely dried out. Disappointed!
Kate from Skokie
Not good for my color treated hair. No lather in first shampoo. Some lather on second BUT my hair feels DRY and harsh after rinse. No amount of conditioner makes my hair smooth.... And the smell is not pleasing to me at all!!!! I'm returning it and never buying this product again.
Minka from Bowling Green, KY
Best shampoo & conditioner I've ever used. Luxurious, weightless and perfect for fine hair. Hair never looked healthier
Steph from Ohio
The saying is true you get what you pay for!! I know this stuff is pricey but it was a game changer for my thin straight hair. It adds a lot of volume and also I can go longer between washes without my hair looking greasy. A little goes a long way!!! My hair looks so shiny and healthy!!!
Sal from Chambersburg, PA
I have fine semi-thick hair and not only does this give my hair volume, it doesn't dry my hair out or make my scalp itch! I have tried so many shampoos and sulfate free shampoos that did make my scalp itch and skin break out and I'm almost 70! I have super-sensitive skin--allergic to chlorine and hardness in water--but this did not give me any reactions! I hope Alterna does not change this formula!!!
Love Ulta from Nevada
I really like the shampoo but the packaging is not good for older folks. The top is hard to open and there is a lot of shampoo at the bottom that if it was easier to get the top off you could add water to get it to emulsify and be able to use all of it. Funny it's an anti aging shampoo with hard to open/use tops.
MJ from PA
The bottle is so hard to use, I don't use it.
Darlene from Las Vegas, NV
I have wavy, medium length hair and always try to find products that will nourish and give my hair volume since I have dull hair. The shampoo has left my hair looking and feeling healthier. A little goes a long way. I love the scent. This shampoo also helps my hair look fuller. My hair stylist even asked what I was using.

I love this shampoo. It changes the texture of my hair to a smooth, shiny and bouncy head of hair. The best part is it does not strip the color out of my hair. I have a lot of grey and dye my hair dark brown. My color maintains a lot longer than other shampoos.
Heads up, don't use too much and adjust to the low lather. It works great eith a minimal amount.
