I received a sample of the Alterna Bamboo Silk-Sleek Brilliance Cream. I was in a warm climate, and was unable to use a blow dryer for a day. I was, also, without hairspray for a day.
I used the Bamboo shine shampoo and conditioner. Then followed with the brilliance cream after allowing my hair to sit in a towel for a few minutes.
I noticed that I had soft and glossy hair. I realized I didn't even need hairspray by the time I was finished.
I have fine to normal density with a slightly natural curl. My hair can be dry looking if I'm not careful since I shampoo, sometimes, twice a day. Hopefully this will give you a better idea of the product. I will purchase this product in the near future!
