Alterna Bamboo Beach 2017

Every Summer I look forward to the  rollout of Alterna's Bamboo Beach line .  I spend all weekend in my pool and I have a lot of hair.   Great Summer strands are easier to get with these 4 products to help protect hair against sun,  pool  and saltwater.

Ocean Waves Tousled Texture Spray is a lightweight mist that adds some texture and boost to air dried hair. It didn't my weigh hair down or dry it out and has a little added moisture. It's easy to use and easy on hair to amp up any natural wave you might have .  Tousled waves came out well  and with plenty of volume.

Sunshine Spray is a moisturizing UV protective spray that adds shine, moisture and helps keep hair from being damaged by the sun. You can use it all over , especially nice for a pool or beach day  , or add  a light mist over hair and on dry areas.  Coconut  and sunflower oil give the  moisture while the coconut also makes for a tropical scent.

Breeze Dry Balm is  a rich cream to define texture , fight frizz and with the brand's  ColorHold , help keep haircolor from fading in the sun and surf.  This is a heavier balm and adds a good bit of moisture. It can be used as a leave in conditioner.   It amped up texture pretty well but it did weight my hair down a little . I will note that I used a lot of it and maybe overdid it.  It does have a fabulous  tropical island smell and  is great to work through hair before you jump into the water.

1 Minute Recovery Masque has Color Hold UV protection along with coconut and bamboo extract to give hair a very quick boost of conditioning. Work through damp hair and leave on for 1 minute after beaching, swimming, sailing etc.   No one wants to fuss with their hair when it's hot out and this helps to revive dry hair fast.

All products in the Alterna Bamboo Beach line are $ 22 each at Sephora ,
