I’ll be the first to admit that I’m high maintenance : I put effort into what I wear, my makeup, and my nails – but when it comes to my hair, I’m rather low key about it. I don’t color it because I don’t want to have ANOTHER thing to keep up with. I neglect getting a hair cut for as long as possible, and I’ve only had a blow out once, which is needless to say that my choice in hair products is usually determined by whichever shampoo I find on my Target run that I’d like to try this time around. And don’t get me started about hair care products – I typically just use whatever samples I get from Sephora or off brand Moroccan Oil… until the day I got a sample of Alterna’s Caviar CC cream from Sephora, it’s a leave in hair protector like It’s a 10, but even in just a sample size, I fell in love with it more so than the love I felt for It’s a 10. Luckily, this past summer I had raked up enough Sephora VIB Rouge points to snag me a travel size set of Alterna’s Caviar Anti-Aging Powerful Hydration line
Even luckier is that I got it a week before going to Greece. I love my time in Ellada, but the salt water and sun ravage my hair. I try not to use too much heat, but something about that mermaid life exacerbates any dry and brittle ends. So if there was a perfect time to try out these products to see if they stand up to the biggest hair challenge, it was then!
I had little faith in a shampoo and a conditioner doing much for my hair. I had never used a shampoo and conditioner that made my hair feel super clean AND moisturized in the first use. I was used to choosing between squeaky clean hair but dry strands, just crying for some hydration or super hydrated hair that always felt could feel just a touch greasy 😕 ? After washing my hair with these two, my hair felt light and airy and replenished.<<<<<<<<<<<
ew that I LOVED the CC 10 in 1 Cream, but paired with the shampoo and conditioner the results were so much better! This cream leaves my hair feeling soft and whether I’m air drying or using a diffuser, it helps keep my curls in tact. If I’m straightening my hair or using a curling iron, it keeps the frizz at bay. I used the Smoothing Hydra-Gelée only a few times but feel that had I used heat tools plus sun & salt water, this would’ve been reviving AF.
le only lasted me about 2 weeks of luscious locks… and like with anything, after I stopped nourishing my hair with these products, my hair went back to its state from before.. and I just wasn’t ready to splurge that much for hair care. I thought, well if my makeup is on point, maybe no one will pay attention to my hair?
