Alterna Bamboo Abundant Volume Shampoo and Conditioner

I got this Alterna Haircare Bamboo Abundant Volume shampoo and conditioner duo sample from Sephora.

Bamboo shampooThe sample was enough for two washes for my hair. The first thing I noticed was the fragrance. I opened the packaging and it smelled like the forest to me. When I worked the formula into my hair, the scent reminded me of a cologne. This fragrance had me curious for a while, but it wasn’t a bad smell at all.

The shampoo lathered quickly and well. The conditioner worked like any other. My hair felt refreshed after my shower, and it also smelled really good.

I have no complaints about this shampoo or conditioner, however I didn’t fall absolutely in love with it either. Maybe two uses doesn’t really show an increase in hair volume, but I definitely didn’t notice that. Then again, every volumizing shampoo I buy hasn’t really worked well. This formula didn’t work miracles, but I’d use it as an everyday shampoo and conditioner duo. I like how it’s “100% free of: parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.” I felt like this was important since I like to know what I’m putting into my hair.

What are your thoughts? Anyone else try this shampoo and conditioner duo before?
