Alterna Bamboo BB Beach Balm

Summer hair gets a bit easier with the Bamboo Beach line by Alterna. Each year the brand does a line aimed at hair that's been in sun and swim. 

New this year is Bamboo Beach Balm  a lightweight leave in conditioner that adds moisture, frizz control , light hold and UV protection. I'm a huge fan of their Caviar CC Cream and this seems like a lighter , summer ready version. 

 It's  a thicker balm and has a nice tropical pina colada scent. Just work some  of this  through  damp hair and either blow dry or let  air  dry.  It can also be used on dry hair and is just the thing to  work through your strands before jumping in the pool. That can help to  keep color more locked in and protect from  chemicals and sun damage.

The moisture here is not heavy, it's not a deep conditioner but it does pretty well with honey extract, coconut and sunflower seed oils in there. It doesn't weigh hair down but smoothes it some. If you already have very dry hair , it might not be enough on it's own.

 I'll be keeping mine poolside plus I'm big fan of air drying once it gets warm  and this'll be great for that. Bring on the sunshine, I'll be at Bamboo Beach. Now where's that cabana boy?

Alterna Bamboo BB Beach Balm is $22 at Sephora and Ulta.
