Alter Ego Silver Maintain Shampoo Review - Yes, More Expensive but Ultimately Worth It
Graying hair can be quite an issue, beyond just making you appear older. Why? Because gray tends to wash out most complexion types and tones. Silver, on the other hand, can enhance many skin types and eye colors. Let's face it: silver is a prettier shade than gray.
The quality of gray hair is also different than non-gray strands: coarse, less smooth, often kinky. Its harder to get a sleek look with kinky, gray hair.
Alter Ego is an Italian brand that makes a gray hair shampoo that goes one step beyond: not only enhancing the tone of your gray hair but making those annoying strands smoother and shinier.
Alter Ego Silver Maintain Shampoo is designed to protect and enhance your hair's silver color. This shampoo is gentle enough for all hair types and contains sunflower seed extract, which helps fight free radicals that cause color degradation.
This powerful gray hair shampoo also contains polyphenols, which are natural compounds found in plants and flowers that help to keep hair color vibrant. The shampoo's polyphenolic blend contains aqueous extracts from red clover, lavender, carnation, and marigold. It has a pH level of 4.5-5.5, making it safe for all hair types.
This shampoo removes unwanted yellow and brassy tones and adds moisture. Its tone correcting formula is made of organic herbal extracts that deeply condition your hair and reduce static. It also helps control flyaways and enhance shine. Its fragrance is mild and pleasant, which makes it suitable for all hair types.
