Alterna Ten Hair Masque Review

2

Alterna is one of Hollywood’s most popular haircare lines with a long list of celebrity fans like Jennifer Aniston, Madonna, Scarlett Johansson etc. and luxury is the only word I can use to describe its Ten Hair Masque.

Priced at $55 for a 5.1 oz jar, Alterna Ten Hair Masque is infused with ten exotic ingredients from around the globe, including African Cacao Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Caviar Age-Control Complex™, Photozyme Complex™ with Color Hold™, White Truffle Oil, Champagne Grape Seed Oil, Bulgarian Evening Primrose, Arabian Frankincense, Moroccan Quillaia Bark and Arnica Flower. It promises to repair and renew all hair types and transform it from ordinary to extraordinary.

The first thing that I noticed is the strong yet absolutely divine smell. The texture is very thick and creamy, which makes the product super easy to apply without dripping everywhere. Most importantly, it delivers what it promised! My hair feels instantly smoother, shinier and I can finally run a comb through it without getting stuck (my hairdresser is going to be *so* pleased!) Plus it never weighs your hair down or leaves a greasy look like some hair masks do.

My only rant is the hefty price tag, which sadly for my wallet, is worth every single penny. I guess I will have to save this for once a week and emergency fixes.

  1. This product saved my hair! I color all the time, and had some really damaged ends. My hair looked A LOT healthier, and I didnt need to get as much cut off.
