Alterna products pamper your tresses with high-quality ingredients


Astrand of hair comprises carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and sulfur. The loss of any of those elements, whether via chemical process, sun damage or the aging process, causes hair to become dry and dull.

Alterna hair care products were devised to restore hair to its virgin state, giving it the bounce, shine and elasticity associated with youth.

Its shampoos and conditioners come in five formulations: Hemp, Caviar, Life, Luxury, and at the top of the line, the Science of Ten. Each formulation makes use of the company’s Enzymetherapy, which delivers the essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and proteins needed to build thicker, stronger hair.

Ten incorporates 10 key elements, including white truffle oil, grape seed oil and Alterna’s trademark Photozyme Complex and Age-Control Complex incorporating Omega-3 fatty acids, anti-oxidant vitamin C and Cytokines to moisturize and combat signs of aging.

An 8.5-ounce bottle of Ten shampoo is $60, and a 6.7-ounce bottle of conditioner is $60.

For a limited time, Alterna is offering a limited-edition Ten boxed set including shampoo and conditioner made with 100 percent VOSS artesian water pumped from an aquifer in the pristine wilderness of southern Norway.

The boxed set, including a 12.6 fluid ounce bottle of VOSS water, is $300. Only 50 sets were made available to the Hawaii market. Inquire at Salon Bobbi & Guy, Mandara Spa, Hairscapes, Salon 808, Hairscapes and Beauty Outlet Supply Store at the Nimitz Business Center. r
