A few months ago, I wrote about a German beauty brand Alterra, I then purchased a quite large collection of their haircare and makeup products. Alterra is a certified organic beauty brand, which offers very affordable products, and, though, their mascaras didn’t wow me, their Cleansing Foam did. The reason why I’m sharing about these items only now is that it took me some time to (finally!) finish them all. So, here are some thoughts:
Alterra Volume Shampoo: made with organic papaya extract. I was really surprised by how nice my hair felt after using this shampoo. It didn’t give me much volume, but instead cleansed my hair well and left them looking shiny and feeling light and refreshed. It didn’t dry out them either like most of volume shampoos do. Regarding its price (approx 5EUR for 200ml) and performance, I’d say it’s really good.
Alterra Caffeine Shampoo: this is a stimulating and strengthening shampoo for weak and thin hair. It contains biotin, caffeine and guarana that are supposed to give vitality. To be frank, this is an ordinary shampoo, which can be a good choice for those who who want a simple everyday shampoo and don’t have any special requirements. Though, I don’t find this shampoo worthy of repurchasing.
Alterra Pomegranate & Aloe Vera Moisturizing Hair Mask: made with Aloe Vera and extracts of Pomegranate and Acacia Flowers, this moisturizing hair mask is a great product with a great price tag (5EUR for 150ml). It makes hair very smooth and it also smells fantastic. However, you have to stick to instructions when using this one. I often use hair masks as hair conditioners and in most cases they do a pretty good job, but not with this one. You have to keep it on the hair for at least 15-20 minutes (or even longer, if you have time) to see the good results.
Have you tried Alterra Naturkosmetik?
