Product Review: Alterna Caviar Anti-Ageing Colour Hold Rapid Repair Spray

I know I already did a mini review of this spray in my GlossyBox post, but since I received it I have been using it every single day, and as it is one of the best products I've ever tried on my hair I decided that it deserved a post of its own! My hair damages easily and I love wearing it long, silky and glossy so I'm forever trying new products to try and achieve that salon finish every day!

Basically, its a finishing mist that you spray on dry hair. I love that is smells amazing: sweet but not too much so that you would not want to wear it in your hair. It makes my hair shiny, and it really enhances the coloured bits (I have half head highlights). It also thins my hair a little where it is fluffy so that it hangs smooth and glossy. I don't get heavy clumps of product in my hair using this, as I do with most other hair serums I've used. 

It's a repair spray, and though I do already use a leave in conditioner exclusively for sealing split ends (Herbal Essences, review to come soon!) I've noticed even less since starting to use this spray every morning. I could not recommend this spray enough. 

Its £27 for a 100ml bottle, but judging by the bottle I have it will last quite a while depending on how much you use it, and if you think about how much high end face scrubs and moisturisers are from places like Benefit and Clinique, it's not too ridiculous a price if you're willing to spend as much looking after your hair as you do on your skin.


Do you have a wonder product you use to try and achieve a salon finish?
