I Have really curly hair that I like to blow dry straight, especially in the winter time.
I like to use products with keratin in them to keep my hair frizz free and to minimize damage. My new favorite shampoo and conditioner is the Alterna Instant Recovery set. I am absolutely obsessed with this shampoo and conditioner!!!
I actually stumbled on this duo by accident… I received a deluxe sample of the shampoo, conditioner and styling cream with my Sephora order. I didn’t really think it would be that good, just because I feel that I like moisturizing products for my hair instead of repairing. But I was extremely wrong. This shampoo and conditioner is possibly my Holy Grail… and I have tried just about every shampoo in conditioner from Shu Uemura to Dove. I really feel that this shampoo hydrates and protects my hair from the core, instead of just coating my hair with product.
The shampoo is amazing, it cleanses my hair without stripping it and makes my hair more manageable after I rinse it out. I love how this shampoo is free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates and synthetic color. This means the shampoo will not dry out curls with harsh suds or strip color. You only need the smallest amount of shampoo to clean your hair, I have a ton of hair and I barely need more than a quarter size to cleanse my entire head.
I think out of the duo my favorite is the conditioner. I cannot explain how softening this conditioner is!! It literally melts into my hair and allows me to de-tangle it with my fingers instantly. The conditioner is a pretty medium constancy but this allows it to fully penetrate and be distributed through my thick hair. This is the first conditioner that has replaced my deep conditioner because it is so good.
Overall I would rate Alterna’s Cavier Repair RX a 5 out of 5 stars!
