Pure. Proven. Professional. So yeah, what more could an all-natural beauty with colored hair, like you, want from a shampoo?


Ah, yes, you want to know exactly how Alterna pulls all this off with their Bamboo Color Hold+ Shampoo. Well, it’s in part what they leave out and in part what they put into their products. For instance, they always leave out the Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, Synthetic Color, Sodium Chloride, Gluten, DEA/TEA, and Triclosan; while for this shampoo they put in Organic Bamboo Extract and Organic Kalahari Melon.

All Alterna products are subjected to intensive clinical, consumer, safety and in-salon testing which of course leads to the brand’s professional claims. They have tapped the expertise and insights of professional stylists to create luxurious, high-performance products that meet the standards of professional salons, as well as those you hold when stepping into the shower with greasy, greasy hair.

So, if you’re looking to retain color and fight fading, and maybe even boost your hair’s strength and flexibility, you’ll want to totally consider Alterna’s Bamboo Color Hold+ Shampoo. Simply massage a dollop of this shampoo throughout your color-treated wet hair, rinse thoroughly, and if you’ve got it on hand follow with Bamboo Color Hold+ Conditioner.
