Tried & Tested: Alterna Caviar CC Cream for Hair

You know the age of Complete Correction (CC) creams has donned upon us when even our hair gets its own formulation! We test out the Alterna Caviar CC Cream for Hair 10-in-1 Complete Corrector.

What Is It?

The Alterna Caviar CC Cream for Hair 10-in-1 is a leave in hair product that aims to perfect your locks into an enviable and easily manageable crowning glory. As mentioned by Joan Malloy, president of Alterna Haircare told WWD: “It is both a treatment and a styler and works on dryness and uneven texture for all hair types.”

Similar with CC creams for faces, the leave in hair perfecter acts as a foundation and is multifunctional. Its ’10-in-1’ benefits include providing your hair moisture, shine, smoothness, softness, anti-breakage, heat-damage protection, light hold, UV protection, manageability, and strength!

The (not so) secret ingredient behind the product is none other than caviar extract. That said, certain key ingredients of this item yields pretty big promises:

  • Caviar extract’s amino and omega-3 fatty acids even out the hair shaft.
  • Vitamin C to resist free radicals.
  • Seasilk marine botanicals help provide moisture.

How To Use It?

Simply squeeze out some of the CC cream onto your palm and apply evenly on tresses. You can either use this when your hair is wet or dry.

Did We Like It?

In our honest opinion, the Alterna Caviar CC Cream for Hair 10-in-1 is all right but is not a product to shout about.

While we are unsure about its heat protection and anti-breaking benefits (or rather, we couldn’t really tell), we give you assurance that it did give our limp hair a nice moisture-kick, texture and shine. Oh, and it also left our hair smelling real nice! Effects lasted about 5-6 hours, even in the hot and humid Malaysian weather. However, we personally think that it would’ve been better if the leave in product did not leave a slight build up in our hair after application.

As a whole, we applaud Alterna for creating such an interesting hair product and would recommend this CC Cream to those who are looking for an extra treatment for their hair.

The Alterna Caviar CC Cream for Hair 10-in-1 is currently available at Sephora outlets nationwide and is retailing for RM90.
