ALTERNA Haircare 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 Haircare Caviar Repair RX Re-Texturizing Protein Cream

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?

I have never blow dried m hair as the damage I am trying to fix is due to heat. It has still worked wonders with me even thought I air dry.

Absolutely not! I rub this in my hands with some Moroccan Oil and run it through damp hair then let it air dry. I think it's more effective when left to air dry, it leaves your hair smooth, not frizzy, and doesn't weight hair down. If you can hold off on the blow dryer the natural results will blow your mind.

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 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
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 a while now and I've found it to be the opposite of drying. I rub it in my hands with a small bit of Moroccan Oil and let it air dry and the results are amazing. I have thick wavy hair with heavy damage from bleach, and this cream pumped the life back in my hair, doesn't leave your hair feeling dry or crunchy. Leaves hair feeling nourished, smooth, strong, and doesn't weight it down.

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
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?

I've been combining it with Living Proof's Restore Instant Protection Spray because my hair is very processed and I don't want to chance it, but I noticed that when I've forgotten the spray, my hair still seems to do pretty well so it's probably sufficient for hair not quite as processed as mine haha

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.

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

I use a pea sized amount on both sides of my hair. I have shoulder length hair. If your hair is short, I would say only use one pea sized amount. I love this product and can tell after 3 applications it is helping. It is well worth the money.

My hair is shoulder length and average thickness and I probably use about a quarter size amount. Rub between hands and apply from mid-shaft to ends.

I have fine hair, and this product worked wonders for me. It takes a few applications to make sure you do not use too much product (like any product, over-application can make hair look greasy), but my fine hair is now much thicker thanks to this product!

I had a Keratin treatment and continued using the Protein cream without any problems. I noticed it actually compliments the Keratin treatment really well, and as the treatment wears off, the Protein cream continues to repair your hair.
