I agree with many other editors that the scent of Alterna‘s products is addicting and delightful.
From their Caviar CC Cream (two bottles down) to their Caviar Anti-Aging SEASILK Oil Gel (using daily), and their Caviar Perfect Blowout Crème that both smooths and shines my hair to now a virtually translucent dry shampoo called Bamboo Style Cleanse Extend Translucent Dry Shampoo ($22.00). I just love the line!
Just look at their spokeswoman, Katie Holmes, if you don’t believe me?! Last week, Katie Holmes, Alterna Haircare co-owner, shopped at a NYC Sephora and picked up the NEW Bamboo Scented Cleanse Extend Dry Shampoo.
In addition to the new dry shampoos being incredible, Alterna will donate 15% of proceeds of each bottle purchased (exclusive to Sephora and Sephora.com) for the month of October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
This dry shampoo leaves no powdery residue like some others I have tried, and my hair just looked refreshed after spraying it on my roots. I used my fingertips to tousle my curls and my hair looked just as good as the day before.
Dry shampoos are meant to extend the life of your blow-outs or re-energize your hair in-between washings. I have used others in the past, yet could not get over that white, chalky residue on my scalp and swore them off until this product came along.

Bamboo extracts immediately boost hair’s intrinsic strength giving it the flexibility and sustainability it had once before. Blue Yucca Root also acts as a naturally fixative ingredient that is rich in vitamins and nourishes the hair while providing the ultimate in natural style.
This formula helps to absorb oil and adds volume to just-washed and second-day hair. It also has Color Hold Technology to protect your color. Sheer Blossom includes calming extracts; botanical cleansers are what I truly love smelling while using Alterna‘s products. To me, it’s their signature scent and I find it to be a soothing scent.
Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Seasilk ® Oil Gel ($28.00) is safe for color-treated hair (like mine), adding moisture and shine to my strands. All you need is a dime-sized amount (depending on your hair length) and apply it evenly through towel-dried hair and style as desired.

I have also used it on dry hair as well to tame my flyaways and frizz. It has the signature Caviar fragrance of green tea and bergamot that has me addicted to the brand, as I find the scents so delightfully refreshing.
Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Perfect Blowout Crème ($24.00) was created to give your hair radiant shine with every blow-dry. It also tames frizz and adds shine and moisture to your hair.
It provides protection against heat-damaging styling tools, and leaves your hair looking shiny and smooth. I use it on my towel-dried hair to tame my frizz and keep my waves in place.
This product will launch in November at Sephora.com, Beauty.com, Ulta stores, Fred Segal and high end boutiques and salons worldwide.
Please note this product is free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates and synthetic color!
