Alterna Haircare is a brand I hadn’t heard of until I came across this product in my Lookfantastic subscription beauty box. I’ve been so taken with this ‘Best Of Beauty’ award winner that I thought I would give it a review all of its own.
Firstly, Here’s A Little About Alterna And Their Product
Alterna continuously sets the industry standard for luxury haircare by using the highest quality ingredients and breakthrough technologies. They were the first to introduce a BB cream for hair with the Blonde Beauty Balm in April 2012, and now are the first to introduce the latest, greatest, next generation of the BB—the CC.
Helping to leave hair feeling polished and soft to the touch, this Alterna Caviar CC Cream is a miracle, leave-in product that delivers 10 benefits in just one easy step.
- Alterna Caviar CC Cream (74ml)

Caviar CC cream perfects the hair in 10 different ways for complete:

This all sounds like a tall order!
I only have the 25ml travel size, however, this is still a good-sized tube and I’ve had many uses from it. A little goes a long way. I must say, I love it. I’m not usually one for adding product to my hair post-washing as it always seems to feel sticky and lose its swish and bounce when blow dried.
I have long hair with lots of highlights, I’d say it’s in pretty good condition all things considered. Annoyingly though, when my hair is wet it takes on a straw – like texture so it requires a fair bit of combing through. Particular as I don’t have many layers.
The first time I used this I was skeptical and so I just tried the smallest amount to see how my hair would react. I was surprised, I was able to comb my wet hair through quite well. After I blow dried my hair it felt soft and not weighed down at all, so the next time I used a little more and I had the same great results.
When I squeeze the product into my hand it has a texture, similar to the feel of a silicone based facial primer. It also smells gorgeous, a lovely fresh scent which when it comes to hair care products is always a good thing. I definitely have shine and smoothness using this product, whether it will help with breakage time will tell with continued use.
Caviar CC cream can also be used as a smoother or finisher once your hair is dry. I tried it, just a tiny amount and again this works really well just to give a little finishing touch to the hair and smooth down any fly aways
If your hair needs taming or if you just want to try this cream I would highly recommend it. It comes with many rave reviews, including mine!
