I don’t really care about the ingredients, but I’ll attach a photo of the analysis for you:
The most dangerous component is obviously Methylisothiazolinone here.
Something about my hair:
The main part of my hair is not dyed. Sometimes I undergo keratin hair straightening treatments. My hair is diverse, as some hairs are thick, fluffy and coarse while the others are thin and soft. I use Schwarzkopf Professional Igora Expert Mousse from time to time and bleach the lower part of my hair with L'Oreal Casting SunKiss. My hair is mostly porous and has dry tips. The roots are greasy, so I wash my hair every other day. Moreover, my scalp is prone to getting itchy.
What do I expect from a reconstructing product? It has to moisturize my hair and make it more flexible without making it sticky.
Alfaparf Daily Anti-Breakage Fluid:
The fluid has a lightweight creamy white formula with a nice sweet scent. Here, you can see three pumps of the product:
Here, I’ve spread it out a little: My experience with the fluid:
Although the fluid has a pump, I won’t recommend you apply it to your hair immediately, as it trickles out. In other words, the pump doesn’t distribute the product evenly.
It’s better to rub it in your hand prior to application.
The manufacturer recommends the following use:
On the Internet some girls say that it can also be applied to dry hair. I’ve tried it both ways, but the results are always the same! My hair is not at all smooth and sticks every which way. It feels sticky, matte and somewhat coarse. My hair is not flexible and I can’t even run my fingers through it! It tangles and falls out!
Here, I’ve applied this fluid to my damp hair after washing and blew it dry.
My hair is relatively trouble-free, so I can’t even imagine how this product performs for really damaged hair type.
In the shade it looks greasy…
As a result, I prefer applying Alfaparf Daily Anti-Breakage Fluid as a mask only at night and washing my hair the following morning. I haven’t noticed any difference in terms of my hair structure, so I’m utterly disappointed! I don’t know whom this product would actually suit. So, no recommendation from me.
