Alterna®

Birchbox Breakdown

This fade-proof finishing gloss is the next generation of hair protection. Not only does it strengthen dry or brittle strands, but it also helps protect your hard-earned color from sun damage. Use it regularly to keep your hue true and healthy until your next appointment: it’s clinically proven to help retain color and brightness for 60 washes. If you don’t color your hair, you can still use this product to keep strands supple and shiny.

How to Use

Apply several pumps through towel-dried hair (about one pump for short hair and three for long strands) to strengthen strands and keep color vibrant longer. Or use half as much on dry hair to add major shine and hydration.

Awesome shine
Purchased

This is a great product which offers a layer of shine without any extra weight. This product makes hair appear soft and silky but does not make hair greasy.

finishing gloss

I love this gloss. It is so light and it very much agrees with my curls. I bough it because I sometimes color my hair (dark brown) and I want to preserve the color and avoid brassiness. I must say, I use it every morning, it really helps with the frizz. And it is seriously lightweight. It does not weight down the hair. I own a TON of hair product but lately, this is the only one I am using every day.

did a good job

It smells good and made my hair feel nice. I only got a sample, so I can't say if it really helped me maintain my box color or not.

A must have for anyone with color treated hair
SampledPurchased

You can't imagine how well this product protects your color. It's very lightweight and easy to apply--and just the one extra step makes a huge difference. Your hair will be shiny but not sticky or greasy. Excellent product!

Nice, lightweight
Purchased

This is a nice gloss for color retention and uv filtering. I use it while my hair is wet and as I'm finishing my style. It's very lightweight and doesn't weigh my fine, limp hair down at all. Hence, using it before and after styling. The scent is ok. I thought it would smell like the Kendi oil that Alterna makes but it does not.

Exotic scent

I love Alterna products with this one being my favorite. It smells exotic and reminds me of a far off place. A little goes a long way and leaves my hair smooth, soft, and shiny. Who doesn’t want shiny, beautiful hair?
