I love products that make my hair feel alive. A good hair product provides nourishment and protection to hair from various external and sometimes internal factors. My hunt for products that work and make me feel good about my hair is always on. I bought this Alterna Caviar CC Cream for Hair 10-in-1 Complete Correction 7-8 months back to control my dry frizzy hair and to add some shine to them. I tried a sample of this product from a friend and loved it, so I bought the full size of this hair cream which is why I still have a bit left in the tube after using it on and off for over 7 months.
From the Sephora website, “Alterna Caviar CC Cream for Hair 10-in-1 Complete Correction is a leave-in hair product that delivers 10 benefits in one simple step, leaving hair perfectly polished. CAVIAR CC Cream or “complete correction” cream is a luxe leave-in product that perfects hair in 10 different ways. It provides moisture, shine, smoothness, softness, anti-breakage, heat protection, light hold, UV protection, manageability, and strength—everything your hair needs to look absolutely beautiful, healthy, and flawless. This 10-in-one hair primer can be used alone or as a base for the layering of other styling products. It does not have Parabens, Sulfates, and Phthalates.”
I wash my hair every other day or every two days depending upon my schedule and my kid's schedule as it is not just hair wash but also hair care like the same way we do care for our skin. The key to using this product, as per my experience is the amount of product to use, I tried and failed first few times. I use a little bit more than a pea size on my medium length wavy hair. If I use a bit more than that, it weighs down my hair, which is why I didn't like this product at first. So I would suggest and keep a record of how much works best for your hair, based on the length and texture of your hair.
This is a very nice leave in hair treatment. I find it works well both with air drying my hair and blow drying. I apply a bit more than a pea size product to my damp hair. I did try and applied it on dry ends but I noticed it weigh my hair down making them look limp. It does offer heat protection and has been a good companion for blow drying.
I prefer to use extra an extra heat protection when I am using a curling iron or flat iron. I have noticed my hair are smooth and manageable when I use this cream. The scent of this hair cream is very pleasant which does disappear very fast. The texture of this product is same as any cream, very soft and buttery. I would recommend this leave in hair cream only if you are going to use it in a consistent amount because the quantity you use does change the outcome on your hair.
This product retails for CAD $48.50 for 5.1oz/150ml and based on the amount required per use, it is definitely worth it.
