Recently, I picked up Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil Dry Oil Mist ($24/ 4.2 oz.) at my local Sephora to use as a leave-in conditioning treatment. My hair is medium length, fine and I’ve had it permanently colored for years. The ends can get dry, and and I wanted something to smooth and condition.
Being a beauty junkie, I actually spritzed my hair with the Alterna right there on the Sephora sales floor. I know, right-one of those people (in my defense, the store was nearly empty). Anyway, it gave me a soft shine without weighing my fine hair down or making my hair look greasy. I bought the Alterna on the spot. My hair looks much silkier and alive–it even seems to give it a really shiny glint. When I use it, my hair looks soft, shiny, and fully conditioned.
I’ve used Leonore Greyl and Morrocan Oil in the past. I like the fact that the Alterna Bamboo has a spray applicator that has a very fine mist–both of the other choices do not. The Alterna takes two or three spritzes to fully condition my ends, so I don’t have to be too careful about over-doing it on very busy mornings. Also, I far prefer the scent of the Alterna (this is personal, I realize). Although the Leonore Greyl is a strong jasmine scent, it can become a little too strong for my taste.
Contains organic bamboo extract with multiple essential fatty acids (Omegas 3,6,9) and antioxidant tocopherol. Readers will want to know that the ingredients also list dimethicone.
