I guess I can't really give an accurate review for this product since I don't color my hair...I did use it several times before going to the pool so my hair wouldn't soak up so much chlorine. Not sure if it helped but my hair did smell good!

Like Alterna, not sure if I need this
Sampled

I like Alterna as a brand and have tried some of their other products, but I use a lot of hair stuff as it is and not sure I need another product just for color protection on top of it.

Awesome!
Sampled

Sometimes when I get out of the shower I use styling mousse to give my curls a little more volume. I decided that I would add a pump of this to my hair product and it really improved the look of my hair! I dye my hair and it made the color seem brighter!

Alterna BAMBOO UV+ Color Protection Fade-Proof Fluide Review
Sampled

This product smells amazing. I've use it on both wet and dry hair, though I feel that it works better for my fly-aways used on dry. I can't say how well it protects color treated hair in the sun, but I would definitely like to purchase the full sizes bottle after I get my hair dyed again.

I don't see any difference...
Sampled

I dye my hair red, one of the colors that fades the most. I put this stuff on after almost every hair-wash and I don't feel it did anything. Now, I didn't take a microscopic image of the hair before and after using it so I can't be sure if it helped with the fading but I don't see any difference.

Great for fine hair
Sampled

It was awesome on my fine hair...then I stripped my color for an ombre and it became essential. I love the feel and the smell. It soaks right in, no greasy blobs anywhere.

Not great for fine hair
Sampled

My hair isn't color treated but it is bleached. Its very fine and not at all dry so I think this product was just too much. It was nice if I sprayed it on the very ends of my hair. I gave it to my mom who had color treated hair.

Light and Lovely

This product goes on so smoothly and weightlessly that I can't even feel the product except that my hair seems stronger and a bit softer and smoother. Since my hair is dry, coarse, and super thick so on its own it isn't enough to smooth my hair, but I can combine it with other serums and oils. One benefit of it being so lightweight and being able to use it dry is that I can through it on right before leaving the house for the UVA/UVB filter (which is important even if you don't colour your hair!) and not have to worry about buildup. I can't attest yet to whether or not it lives up to its colour-preservation claims, but it does make my hair stronger and smoother and does seem to preserve the colour at least a bit, and it adds shine. The scent is hard for me to describe, but it definitely smells "natural" and warm (in a summery way), like the fluid itself, the scent is light and shouldn't conflict with perfume. Definitely love it and recommend it. It should work nicely on all hair types.
