Another amazing bamboo discovery: bamboo hair products! Bamboo is an amazing plant that can be used for such a wide variety of purposes. It can be used for wood floors, building materials, clothing, bamboo linens, warm fuzzy blankets and apparently bamboo hair products as well!
Product review of ALTERNA bamboo hair products
I was recently gifted this travel kit that came with 4 mini sized bamboo hair products. Since I love bamboo as an alternative to cotton and am a firm believer that bamboo production is not harmful to the environment I was very excited to try these products out! They even came in this little bamboo case.
Bamboo hair products that strengthen and protect
Bamboo anti-frizz shampoo
The shampoo contains organic bamboo extract that is proven to strengthen each strand of hair and keep it extra healthy. It also contains Kendi oil that repairs and protects damaged hair. Another added bonus is that it does not contain any harmful chemicals like parabens or sulfates that other typical shampoos are full of. After using this shampoo my hair felt clean, smooth and noticeably less brittle.
Bamboo anti-frizz conditioner
I applied the bamboo conditioner as directed after shampooing and removing any excess water from my hair. I’m glad I followed the instructions because I felt like the moisturizing conditioner was able to permeate my hair much better this way. The anti-frizz conditioner also contains organic bamboo extract and Kendi oil giving your hair extra strength and protection. After using both the shampoo and conditioner I noticed that my hair still had some frizz, so I would have liked to see them deliver more in that area, but I still feel that they are quality products.
Kendi pure treatment oil
The Kendi oil can be used in two different ways. The first only requires a tiny drop of the oil. A little really goes a long way! I squeezed a drop into my palm and rubbed my hands together and then smoothed my damp hair with my hands mainly focusing on the dry ends. The oil was immediately absorbed into my hair so it wasn’t left feeling greasy at all. For additional hair treatment you can apply more oil to your dry hair and leave it in for 10 minutes before rinsing it out. I have yet to try this method, but am sure it would only exemplify the results of softer, healthier looking hair!
Anti-humidity hair spray
I typically like to avoid hairspray when I can mainly because after spraying it I want to pass out from inhaling all of the toxic ingredients. I was comforted to find out that the Bamboo Smooth Anti-Humidity Hair Spray is also free of parabens, sulfates and petrolatum. It uses organic bamboo extract and Kendi Oil to smooth and the hair and eliminate the nasty effects of humidity.
Overall I have to say I was impressed that bamboo hair products could be so effective and make my hair feel so good. Plus the fragrance of the products left my hair smelling like I had just had my hair done at a professional salon. After using bamboo hair products I’m interested to find out if there are other beauty products that use bamboo ingredients. I’m definitely on the lookout and would love to try any other bamboo products out there!
