What is going on with our hair? Dry heat, hats, static…all wreak havoc. We tend to amp up our moisturizer this time of year, look for moisturizing hair products as well. Mickey admits she's obsessed with all things Alterna Haircare and their Caviar Moisture is because it doesn't't weigh hair down. It also works to reverse the damage (anti aging) and the shine and scent are mind blowing. Clearly, this is why it's the #1 selling hair product at Sephora.
Alterna Caviar Moisture Duo is a limited edition set with the award winning shampoo and conditioner. The number one selling hair care at Sephora is formulated with pure caviar extract—rich in omega 3 fatty acids, proteins, minerals, and vitamins A, C, and D—to visibly improve the signs of aging hair in as little as one use. A proprietary blend of Sea Silk® and an Age Control Complex® help target the physical, environmental, and natural signs of aging and stress that can cause hair to look older and start to lose moisture—becoming dry, brittle, and more prone to breakage. The lipid-rich formula helps to replenish every strand, sealing in moisture for hair that looks and feels healthier. You will see a vast improvement in shine, texture, softness, and manageability.
