ALTERNA Caviar Repair RX Re-Texturizing Protein Cream

What it is: A deeply restorative leave-in treatment for coarse, porous, or severely damaged hair. What it does: This powerfully reparative leave-in treatment is formulated with Strand-Building Proteins to help restructure strands, fill in gaps and tears in the cuticle, and strengthen the hair, protecting it from breakage and future damage. Transforming previously coarse hair, it significantly improves smoothness, texture, and manageability. 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. Research results: -Alterna Caviar Repair Rx Re-Texturizing Protein Cream is clinically proven to reduce breakage by 95% when used with Caviar Repair Rx Instant Recovery Shampoo and Instant Recovery Conditioner

Questions & Answers for ALTERNA Caviar Repair RX Re-Texturizing Protein Cream

Question
Will this dry out my hair?
I have fine, color treated hair- will this dry it out? I know that silicones really dry out hair in the long run- so after looking at the ingredients list, I'm kinda wondering about this product...any thoughts?

I've been using this for about 5+ months now, and using it itself, it's good. It doesn't dry out your hair.
If you are worried, don't buy the product. There's many other products.
However, I use this product - blow dry - then use JOSIE MARAN 100% PURE ARGAN OIL LIGHT (bought this at Sephora). It puts a good amount of moisture in your hair, and adds extra protection to the caviar :)

I also have fine, color-treated hair. I used this to fix severe chlorine damage accumulated over numerous trips to the pool, and it worked AMAZINGLY well. Extremely moisturizing - not drying at all!

My hair is very dry and this product has not dried it out more at all. I only use it twice a week as I've hear overuse could cause your hair dry out a little. I've been using it for about 2 months now and its been great so far.

Question
Blow dry necessary?
The directions say to blow dry as usual. Do I need to blow dry my hair in order for this product to be the most effective?

It works good as a leave-in conditioner. It works just the same/ My twin does it like that, but I prefer using it then blow-drying. I use my own leave-in conditioner --> "tresemme leave in conditioner."

I air-dried and had great results, I don't think blow-drying is necessary

I found it to be incredibly sticky if I did not blow dry after using this product, so I would suggest blow drying. I did not find that it was more effective when I blow dried after using this.

Question
Heat protection
Does this product protect hair from heat - blow drying and, especially, flat ironing? Or must we use something else on top of this?

You must use a heat protectant. This only works with a blow-dryer. But if you're using additional heat sources, you must use extra heat protectant. This product isn't a heat protectant, but just supplies moisturizer activated by (blow-dryer) heat.

It's a great heat protector. Helps control frizz as well. Plus it smells amazing!

Yes, it provides heat protection, as well as repairing existing damage, but I still use a cheap heat protectant spray whenever I flat iron.
