As I've said before here, my hair is way too long right now and so it's breaking much more than usual. So I'm using anything and everything at my disposal to keep it as healthy as possible before I can finally get it cut. (Gotta look good for those holiday parties!) That includes Alterna's Caviar Repair Rx Lengthening Hair & Scalp Elixir. You just work a small amount through your freshly-washed hair each morning and let it do its work while you go about your day. The elixir treats both your hair and scalp to help maximize its potential length (good for all us long-haired people). It also conditions and helps to prevent breakage, so it's sort of an all purpose potion. I've tried a few different Alterna products lately and I'm really digging them. They all seem to work well and do exactly what they claim, which is nice (it's hilarious how much some products don't!) It's a little pricey at $38, but you only have to use a small amount (more on longer hair, obviously) so as long as you don't go nuts and coat your strands in it, the bottle will last you awhile. (I've also been alternating using it with Alterna's Caviar Clinical Daily Densifying Foam, so that helps both have a longer shelf life). Now if I could only drag myself out of bed 15 minutes earlier so I wouldn't wind up putting it in a ponytail every day because I'm running late for work, we'd really have something here, people! (Worst. Morning. Person. Ever).
