Care: Review Alterra Feuchtigkeits Shampoo Aloe Vera Granatapfel



Review - Alterra Feuchtigkeitsspülung Granatapfel Aloe Vera

Hello Lovelies! 
Today's review will be about one of my all-time favourite low budget hair care series, the Alterra Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner with Pomegranate and Aloe Vera (200 ml/2 Euro). I have used multiple bottles of this series over time and I usually have a bottle of conditioner at home as a prewash conditioner. Both products work great on all hair types - Lenja has a review in german on her blog and her fine blonde hair loves the conditioner as much as my coarse thick and dry hair! I think one of the reasons is Aloe Vera - it adds moisture to all hair types without weighting hair down. You can buy them online or at the german drugstore Rossmann.

Recipe for deep moisture treatment - Snowy's Moisture Treatment
This conditioner works miracles if you add 
  • two tablespoons of honey to
  •  4 tablespoons of conditioner and 
  • two tablespoons of pure Aloe Vera Juice! 
If everything fails and your hair is really bitchy and unmanageable this recipe is my holy grail! 



Back to our Incis!
Conditioner

Shampoo
Aqua, Lauryl Glucoside, Sodium Coco SulfateCocamidopropyl BetaineGlycerin,Lauroyl SarcosinePunica Granatum Fruit Extract*, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice*,Acacia Farnesiana Flower Extract*,Hydroxypropyl Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium ChlorideAlcohol*,Parfum**, Linalool**, Limonene**,Geraniol**, Citronellol**, Citral** * ingredients from certified organic agriculture ** from natural essential oils

The conditioner contains stearamidopropyl dimethylamine - it is a softener that was also used in huge amounts on the very popular Sante Brilliant Care Conditioner before they changed the formula. Next there is lots of soja oil, pomegranate seed oil, castor oil (yay!) and aloe vera juice.
The shampoo cleanses with mild coco glucosides, contains betaine and glycerin for manageability and again Aloe Vera. There is no protein in either shampoo or conditioner. 

Fragrance:

Sweet fresh and fruity. It can be a little annoying with the sweetness over time but nothing that would keep you from using it.
Both products get a 10/10 for a great combination of price, ingredients and moisture booster effect!



Did you use this series or any more products of the alterra line? I have only used the pomegranate series but I am curious to try out different shampoos :)

  1. Many Polish hair care bloggers love this series, especially the deep treatment and conditioner, though the shampoo also has good reviews. And some hate it, completely. Because of the alcohol at the very beginning. We found out it's not a fatty alcohol like cetyl alcohol, cetearyl alcohol etc that can be most often found at the beginning of INCI lists of conditioners. It's ethanol, the nasty drying alcohol. They just don't name it as alcohol denat., as manufacturers usually do. This series is a typical example of love or hate :-D

    1. Yes very true! Though the Shampoo had alcohol at the end of the Inca. I have never had a problem with dry hair with the Series though :)
