Truth is- despite hair oils being a dime a dozen these days, I’ve never really gotten into them. My hair is very healthy (if not borderline oily) and the few that I have tried just seem to weigh down, and grease up, my locks more than anything else. So when I started using the new ALTERNA Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil Pure Treatment Oil – it was more by accident than anything else. I had gotten a sample from an event and left it at my boyfriend’s place. On mornings when I didn’t have time to shower, I would use some on my hair as a styling aid since I didn’t have anything else at his apartment. That’s when I noticed that not only is it a fantastic styling tool- holding my style all day- it also make my locks super soft- and never oily or greasy. The oil also immediately controls frizz (pesky bed head) and makes the styling process so much easier- producing bouncy voluminous curls. Needless to say, I’m a believer!
Alterna Bamboo Kendi Pure Oil Treatment also acts as a color protectant which is important for me since I have demi-permanent colored hair. At $24, it’s incredibly reasonable for the high end Alterna brand and also comes as a spray.
