I have been using Alterna products for some time and find all wonderful, but especially the masque. A short while ago I decided to try other alternatives, but quickly came back to my Alterna Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Masque. No other conditioner leaves my hair as soft and shiny. After years of tinting, this is the best product I have found for my hair. Other products leave my hair straw-like and unmanageable (I have a unruly hair). With this one, my hair feels as if it had never seen any tint. It also keeps the colour for longer. The 4 stars under 'Ease of Use' have simply got to do with the packaging. I find the tub a little difficult to open with wet hands. Otherwise 10 out of 10!
I have now used this product several times with the expectation that it would perform better than Pantene Pro-V. Sadly the results appear to be the same. Considering the cost of the Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Hair Masque I would recommend you first try the far less expensive Pantene Pro-V before investing in Alterna hair products. It is not that I was unhappy with the Pantene just that I am always looking for the best of hair products on the market. I'll try new ones that come on the market when others give high reviews. That being said, the Alterna product is not a bad product just not any better than Pantene Pro-V.
I tried this hair masque because I liked the shampoo and conditioner. I am not sure how I feel about it. My hair is thick,curly, and dry. While rinsing it out I noticed my hair felt strange, kind of rough. It was hard to comb through and pretty tangeled. I expected it to feel silky and smooth after the masque. But, once my hair was dry it was very shiny and felt kind of silky. It made my hair feel different, kind of silky when dry and made the texture feel very different. I don't know if it coats the hair with something or what. Still not sure if I like it or not. It is expensive, but I got it on sale.
