For a more vigorous conditioning, swap this out with Alterna’s Bamboo UV+ Color Protection Rehab Deep Hydration Masque once a week.

Alterna®

Birchbox Breakdown

Your color-treated ‘do undergoes a lengthy dyeing process, so its daily upkeep should also receive special attention. This creamy, eco-friendly conditioner improves hair’s texture with vital nutrients and is clinically proven to maintain your color longer for a noticeably brighter, longer-lasting shade.

How it Works

Harvested from a South African desert, the Kalahari melon, an integral component of the formula, is one tough fruit: It thrives in intense conditions and defends hair from UVA/UVB rays. Its Color Hold® UV+ Technology makes hair more resistant to color-fading. Plus, the formula is free of parabens and other potentially hazardous ingredients.

How to Use

After cleansing hair, wring strands of excess water. Twist the cap, squeeze the bottle, and run the conditioner through the lengths of hair. Rinse thoroughly.

dry dry dry

I used this shampoo and conditioner for almost a full week because it was recommended to me by a stylist. That was one of the biggest mistakes I have ever made all it dried my hair out really bad! I also did not care for the smell of it at all even though I guess the smell doesn't really matter lol

Nice for highlighted hair
Purchased

This is a nice conditioner for my blonde highlighted hair. I was using Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Moisture shampoo and conditioner but ran out so I tried this for summer. Very nice for spring and summer but will probably use the Moisture in winter. A little goes a long way so this is a great value. I like all Alterna products.

wonderful

this conditioner is amazing. I have fine red hair and it keeps my hair moisturized while still giving it body. My red hair color lasts a lot longer than any other conditioners i have tried. I also like how it is free off parabens and other things that may cause breakage and are bad for your hair!
