Thought caviar was only for the rich and famous? Not anymore! Alterna’s Caviar line makes luxurious hair care affordable. Give your locks some love with these products that put the va-va-voom back in your style.
Hydration is not just for your skin. Healthy hair is shiny and vibrant. Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Duo will have you turning heads. If you want to replenish moisture without a heavy, weighed down feel, this is the set for you. Even the finest of hair will do well. The Photozyme Complex helps repair sun damage (yes, even our hair gets sun damage) and restores radiance. Rated 5 out of 5 stars by our customers, 21 reviewers can’t be wrong!
If you need more bounce and body then Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Body Building Volume Duo is your answer. Like its moisture counterpart both formulas are sulfate-free. This set is the best of both worlds. You will get lift and moisture from these show stoppers. As a woman with fine, color-treated hair I was used to having two sets of shampoo and conditioner in my shower. I needed the volume, but the volume shampoos (even high-end brands) always dried my hair so much I would have to switch to a more moisturizing set every few days. I don’t have to do that with this line, which makes me and my pocketbook happy! How does it smell, you ask? To me both formulas smell the same. They have a clean, spa-like fragrance that is relaxing.
Last but not least, the Alterna Caviar Working Hair Spray is our best seller in the Caviar line for good reason. This has quickly become my favorite hairspray! It offers a light, never-sticky buildable hold that gives your hair a touch of shine. It’s ultra-dry so there’s no waiting to brush through. It’s also humidity resistant so no worries about your hair frizzing in moisture. All-in-all, a five-star line for a five-star you!
