ALTERNA Kendi Oil – Dry Oil Mist Frizz Control

1. Packaging & size

Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi is a product that comes in a 125 ml plastic spray bottle. The packaging is kept in shades of delicate beige and brown, and the sleek bottle easily fits in the palm of your hand. Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil has a beautiful, subtle and fresh fragrance – one of the nicer ones that can be found in hair oils. Due to the form of application (spray), it is, unfortunately, inefficient.

2. Purpose

The oil is mainly intended for hair that is unruly, damaged, dehydrated and stingy. Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil is designed to improve smoothness, radiance, and resilience from the very first application. It also provides excellent protection against high temperatures emitted by blow-dryers.

3. Ingredients

Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil works great as a delicate conditioner that simultaneously nourishes and disciplines your hair immediately ensuring a great look.

Inside, we will find a number of natural oils: Sunflower oil, Jojoba oil, Kukui oil, Grape Seed oil, Avocado oil, and a number of minerals (iron, zinc, and magnesium). Natural oils penetrate through the lifted scales on the hair surface, filling micro-cavities and securing the strands against damage. They add radiance and vitality to hair and perfectly and effectively tame unruly strands. The content of a substance simply defined as “perfume” – might raise concern as it is not thoroughly described. Thus we do not know whether there is a harmful ingredient hidden or not.

The cosmetic also contains some light and volatile silicones which do not harm the hair.

On the contrary, they facilitate the penetration of active substances into the interior.

You should spray Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil over wet hair after washing and then, style as usual. For strengthening shine – apply it to blow-dried hair. Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil can be used up to a few times a day (whenever you feel your hair became dehydrated and frizzy). Thanks to this, the strands are not only beautiful but also constantly protected and healthy. It is worth mentioning that oil in a spray is not suitable (unfortunately) to use on the scalp. Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil should only be applied to the hair and be careful not to get in the eye as it can cause irritation.

4. Effects during the treatment

Gently nourishes hair, facilitates styling, and prevents tangling. Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil disciplines the hair, restoring its glow and healthy appearance. Also, it can be used repeatedly during the day.

5. Effects after completing the treatment

Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil is a very gentle conditioner, working primarily on the surface of the hair – along its shaft. For this reason, despite its brilliant hair conditioning effects, it is impossible to count on the long-term effects of full care.
