It’s taken me a while to find my hair groove. In high school and college I never was quite happy with the way my hair was cut or colored; it never felt like me – probably because I was killing my hair with infrequent (or DIY) haircuts and drugstore colors. Now that I’ve gotten into my hair groove – long with some layers and warm ‘babylights’ throughout, I’m very passionate about taking care of my hair. I have a lot of it, but it falls out all the time and I have this irrational fear that one day I’ll wake up with large chunks of hair missing. But the moment I sat down in Avery’s chair at the adorable Greenville salon, Wilson’s on Washington, I knew my hair was in good hands. The products of choice were all in the Alterna Hair Care line, an affordable but luxurious line of salon-quality hair care products.

My stylist, Avery, and I talked through my hair qualities and current dilemmas – lack of moisture – and immediately knew the products to use for shampooing, conditioning, and styling. The Replenishing Moisture Shampoo is a sulfate-free shampoo that works wonders on dry ends and scalps! Follow that up with the Replenishing Moisture Conditioner, just on the ends, and you’ll notice an immediate difference in the shine, softness, and strength of your strands!

After a luxurious shampoo, we headed to the chair and discussed the style for the day. I always prefer curled hair over straight, so big, blowout curls were expertly crafted. Avery, my stylist for the day, had a great sense of humor and made the whole experience just that much more pleasant. I always appreciate talking to people who love their art and are willing to educate their clients during the entire process.

Using the Weightless Whipped Mousse for extra volume, the Satin Blowout Balm for smoothing, and the miracle-working Bamboo Anti-Humidity Hairspray, my hair was transformed into beautiful curls that held for a good two days after the salon! A feat not to be overlooked in the Greenville summer humidity!

Now that I’ve been using the Alterna HairCare line, I’m definitely hooked! There are so many Alterna products that I want to try now like this Air Dryer Styler  and this Replenishing Moisture Mask. If you’re trying to find either a top-notch salon in Greenville or a line of luxurious hair care products, check out Wilson’s on Washington and the entire Alterna Hair Care product line. You will love the experience with both brands!
