I decided to try a higher end product for my thin, very fine lifeless hair. Oh, and my hair is only the oily side, so it's also quite flat!

The Alterna Bamboo products all purport to give hair strength and flexiblity. The Abundant Volume line has organic bamboo & maca root for strong, thick, full-bodied hair. Ingredients are eco-certified, grown responsibly & traded ethnically. Free of Sulfates, parabens, sodium chloride phthalates, gluten, synthetic color, mineral oil, petrolatum & PABA (on the label).

I have been using the shampoo & conditioner for about a month and I am very pleased with the results! I love that you don't need too much to get your hair done. It rinses clean but doesn't dry out my hair. My hair is volumized and healthy looking and I'll even say stronger! :love:

I agree!!!! I love the feeling and look of my hair whenever I use the alterna range of bamboo volumising shampoo and conditioner, only thing I am not keen on is the way my scalp always flakes and I seem to have flaky dandruff after I wash with it. That still doesn't put me off it though. Guess it's my scalp's reaction

I'm planning on trying this shampoo & conditioner soon; I've always loved Alterna's products. I'm also really interested in trying their Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil Dry Mist, as it sounds like it offers great protection from heat tools.

Love alterna products!! Smell great and good for your hair. Love the way the shampoo dispenses and a little goes a long way. The root blast hairspray is great too!

That would be a big turn off for me.
Does that happen with other products too?

Flaking is due to dry scalp and I have that problem in the winter when my skin is really dry too. Anything with tea tree oil is good for flaking. Whole foods has a few brands good for dandruff and most you only need to use one a week until its under control. I have used the phyto dandruff which is awesome but a little pricey
