Alterna Bamboo Beach Collection

Monday, July 8, 2013

I've said it time and time again, I've never met an Alterna product I didn't fall instantly in love with!  I've been using their products for about two years now.  Just last week, I reviewed Alterna's new Caviar CC Cream for hair which i'm currently loving! Now, i'm introducing you to my new obsessions!  Alterna's Bamboo Beach Collection is simply perfection at its best!  When I think 'summer hair', I instantly picture carefree, air dried, beach waves. 

Alterna's Bamboo Beach Summer Ocean Waves is helping me achieve this easy, carefree look. This lightweight texturizing spray is specifically formulated for summer and achieving that 'just back from the beach' look!  I've used 'Boho Waves' before and liked it but this blows everything else out of the water for me (pun intended)! A few splashes of this beauty on my damp hair is all it takes for an instant 'Summer ready' look! 

Bamboo Beach Sun Recovery Spray is simply my new best friend!  We all love playing in the sunshine, but the sun's rays can be quite harmful, not only to your skin, but your hair as well!  My go-to product for shielding my hair with a UVA/UVB barrier to fade-proof color is Bamboo Color Care UV+ Fade Proof Fluide (not pictured here but i'll discuss more in another post).  I've been using this since last year and have yet to find anything better.  Bamboo Beach Sun Recovery Spray is the perfect compliment to this product.  You see, I spend a lot of time in our pool during the summer which means my hair is very exposed to sunlight.  No matter how many cute hats or scarves I wear, I still need to protect it as much as possible.  As soon as I wash the chlorine water off, I spray this nourishing leave-in conditioner on to instantly revitalize my sun-parched hair .  It deeply penetrates hair to infuse moisture, improve manageability, enhance shine and protect from future damage.   Let me just mention that I have very thick, hard to manage hair.  I can immediately tell if a product works... this one WORKS!  A few spritzes and my hair feels soft, hydrated and smells amazing! 

Ok, I've blogged about my favorite dry shampoo.  Honestly, I just didn't think anything could compare... that is, until my hair met Bamboo Beach Mango Coconut Refreshing Dry Shampoo!!  OH EM GEEEEE!  This dry shampoo WORKS WONDERS on my hair!  A few shakes of this miracle stuff and my hair is instantly taken from limp to luscious!  It's essential for maintaining hair refreshed between washing!  Major Bonus Alert:  It smells uhhhmazing!!!!! Since i'm not sure if this is a limited edition, I have taken the liberty of ordering another large bottle of this stuff!  I cannot go without it!  LOVE LOVE LOVE!

It is important to note that Alterna products are free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, synthetic color, talc, sodium chloride, mineral oil, petrolatum & PABA. 

Alterna has never disappointed me!  The Bamboo Beach Collection is certainly no exception!  I'm absolutely in love and hoping that this collection remains a permanent fixture in Alterna's full line of products!   These are absolute summer hair essentials so check them out!  Your hair will thank you for it!

So lets chat!  Have you tried Alterna Bamboo Beach Collection?  What is your favorite Alterna product?
