Alterna, a new discovery
Like we said earlier, last week was more about food than fashion. Tuesday afternoon I (Hunter Linda) enjoyed the chocolate fondue and Tuesday night I was invited by Alterna and Thijs Willekes to join an exciting dinner in an African restaurant. It was an informal, interactive evening full of tips and tricks about anything to do with hair.
While we were discovering the African cuisine, we got informed about the brand Alterna, the different products, the effectiveness of the products and there were presented some techniques and hair trends. None other than Daan Kneppers, known from television program the Next Hair Guru was showing us the techniques and trends. I really liked the interactive presentation. It was really nice to get informed about the products and to see the impact and manner of use directly. Funny fact, Daan used to be Hunter Niels hairdresser back when he was living in Castricum with his parents. However, back to Alterna. I was familiar with the brand, I knew the ingredient caviar is used in the products and that Alterna is loved by many celebs like Jennifer Anniston. Honestly, I have to admit that when I heared about the ingredient caviar in the products, I dropped out because I can’t afford it. Hair is really important for the Hunters and we don’t mind to invest in good hair care, but we still need to save money for the grocery and fashion obviously. But the presentation expanded my knowledge of Alterna. Alterna has been a pioneer in the luxury haircare category, since 1997. The reason why Alterna is such a great success worldwide is because of the reputation they built on expertise, the innovative ingredients like Caviar, Seasilk, hemp, Bamboo and Kendi Oil and the results-driven formulas. Alterna is the first brand with anti-aging products for hair. Next to the famous caviar products they created a new collection the Bamboo collection, which contains three lines, Smooth, Shine and Volume. Every product in this collection starts with Certified Organic Bamboo to immediately boost the hair inherent strength and which is the basic for sustainably stronger, healthier hair. The effect of these products on your hair are incredible. Trust me, the use of these products are an investment for your look. The products in this line even are very affordable and it’s so worth it. You see a difference after using this hair care. I used the shampoo and conditioner and my boyfriend, who is normally not noticing when I colored my hair, asked me if I went to the hair dresser.
