I’m forever searching out volumising creams and sprays for my flat hair, I have a very particular set of requirements that I like in styling products – they can’t leave my hair feeling like it contains any product (so absolutely no tacky hair or crispy bits!), they can’t leave my hair feeling weighed down and they absolutely must give it texture, volume and shine. Not too much to ask, surely?
Alterna are a really luxurious brand with a celebrity following (apparently including Julia Roberts), the brand are always working on new formulas to keep ahead and they’re not overly expensive which sits well with most.
This Full Body Volume Creme is a lightweight cream which I apply to towel-dried hair before blowdrying. I usually use a small amount and comb it through the roots with my fingers after having brushed through my damp hair.
I was impressed at how full my hair looked after blowdrying and also at how smooth and shiny it looked and felt! The brand doesn’t include any nasty ingredients within their products which is also a plus.
If required, you can also apply this to dry hair at the roots for more boost – I’m not really a fan of applying products on dry hair but I did give this a whirl and it’s not greasy or tacky like I thought.
This has ticked all my haircare boxes and I love that I can finally use a volumising product that also adds shine. It makes my fine hair really manageable and have a little bit of grit whilst also adding body and volume.
