Alterna Caviar Go Out Blowout Duo

Alterna Caviar Perfect Blowout Creme / Alterna Caviar Rapid Repair Spray

Due to the condition of my hair I much prefer to wear it straight & sleek. It makes my hair look thicker, neater & better cared for. I love the messy bedhead look but I just can't really pull it off without looking like I've been pulled through a hedge backwards. It also makes my roots look even worse than they are! I always always always blow dry my hair (cannot stand wet hair!) and finish it off with the Babyliss Big Hair styler so I like to try out new products that can help to protect my hair as well as make it look better.

The Alterna Caviar Perfect Blowout Creme is a thick cream that really helps to add a polished look to your hair. I apply this to my towel dried hair before blow drying it. I use a small amount, probably about the size of a 2p, and smooth this through the lengths of my hair. The thickness of this product means that it does take a little bit longer to dry your hair but the finished look it helps you to achieve is worth that extra effort. I'm really impressed with the hold this product gives my hair which means that my blow dried style lasts longer. It leaves my hair feeling so soft & thicker too. You can even use this on dry hair to help smooth down the ends. When used on dry hair it reminds me of the Percy & Reed Finishing Polish which is another product I absolutely adore.

I've been meaning to pick up a bottle of the Rapid Repair Spray ever since I received a sample of it in the first ever Glossybox back in May 2011! The smell of this stuff is amazing. I wish they'd make a perfume of it! This is such a lightweight spray & you only need a few quick bursts for it to make an incredible difference to your hair. I think this might be my favourite finishing spray ever. It makes your hair so glossy without making it greasy and completely eliminates frizz & fluffiness so it hangs a lot better. My blonde hair also looks brighter because of the shine this spray adds. After using this I've found I get less split ends so it has great long term benefits as well as immediate results.

I bought this set from Beauty Expert where their Winter sale & a 20% off discount code reduced the price from £52.50 to just £21.60 which is less than the price of one of these products alone. Sadly it is now sold out but you can still pick up both of these products individually & they're well worth the money! These products work so brilliantly together & I can't wait to try out some more of Alterna's Caviar range. Have you tried any Alterna products?
