ALTERNA Caviar Repair RX Instant Recovery Shampoo

What it is: A restorative, sulfate-free shampoo that transforms severely damaged hair, intensely nourishing and repairing each strand. What it does: This deeply reparative shampoo is formulated with Strand-Building Proteins, which reconstruct each individual strand of hair from the inside out to rebuild and resurface hair, leaving strands strong, healthy, smooth, shiny and fully restored. What it is formulated WITHOUT:- Parabens- Sulfates - Phthalates What else you need to know: Strand-Building Proteins target damage at the microscopic level, working to repair each individual strand of hair. Delivering essential nutrients to the hair’s interior cortex, it nourishes and strengthens strands and fills in gaps and tears in the damaged cuticle, reconstructing this protective layer to ensure that nutrients do not escape. It also cements the newly constructed, exterior cuticle to the interior cortex, ensuring that the scales of the hair lay flat. Additionally, it 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. The result is stronger, smoother, softer, and shinier strands fully restored to their healthy, pre-damaged state.

Questions & Answers for ALTERNA Caviar Repair RX Instant Recovery Shampoo

Is this product good for color treated hair

answer 1
Yes, absolutely. My hair color is the lightest blonde and it keeps my hair very vibrant. I have not experienced any need for purple shampoo in between the washes to prevent my hair from turning brass like it did at some point before when I used different shampoos and conditioners. And it is moisturizing without the feel of it. So I feel it is really good for keeping the color true.

Yes, it keeps the color longer because there are no sulfates in it.

Works great on my colored, hi-lighted aging fine hair! At my stylist's suggestion, I am using this line to get my hair in prime condition before I have my hair lightened even further. I've only been using this 3 days but already I see much inproved hair. Go for it! You won;t be sorry!

answer 6
Yes, this is a great product for color treated hair! It is sulfate free which means that it will not strip your hair of color and natural moisture. Most shampoos have sulfates which are strong detergents. Some other sulfate-free shampoos that I have used in the past don't seem to cleanse well, but this shampoo does!

Is this great for color treated hair?
I color my hair slightly red. It seems to not hold red very well but, all the other colors. Would this keep my hair color looking fresh and vibrant? Thank you!

This is a good shampoo but since your hair color is red, I would go for a color treated shampoo. Red is a very touchy color and depending on how you take care of it, it will either last you or fade to nothing. The first time lasted for only 3 days :/ then it faded to brown. Find a shampoo/conditioner for color treated hair and wash with cold water :) best of luck!

Good for sensitive scalp?
My scalp is so sensitive that I have to use baby shampoo. Does anyone know if this product contains lanolin, formaldahyde, dyes, or frangrances? I hate to spend the $$ if it might make me break out.

I don't know if those ingredients are in the shampoo, but my scalp got so itchy and flaky when I used this shampoo.

This product is safe for sensitive scalps, however, we do accept returns on lightly used items if you find it does not work for you.

Is this ok to use regularly?
I just got a sample of the shampoo and conditioner from a Sephora employee who told me not to use it every day because it builds protein and too much protein is not good for hair. I told her I only shampoo every other day and she said it would be fine to use once or twice a week. Can anyone (preferably someone from Alterna) explain this to me? I see a lot of people who use it regularly with great results and others who have dry hair and breakage and I'd love to know the straight story. Thanks.

Help with hair growth?
I am having a heck of time trying to grow out my bangs and I noticed that Alterna's clinical daily shampoo states that it helps with hair growth so I'm wondering if this one does as well; has anyone experienced it?
