Alterna Hemp Straight Collection

Beverly Hills, California — Alterna Professional Haircare announced today the launch of its Hemp Straight Collection. This powerful trio debuts with a sulfate free shampoo, conditioner and the relaunch of the heralded and best-selling Hemp Seed Straightening Balm, which has been repackaged to match the vibrant fuchsia of Hemp Straight.

Alterna’s Hemp Straight Shampoo ($19 for 10.1 oz.) is a gentle, sulfate free cleanser that delivers conditioning, radiance and protection simultaneously for wavy or curly hair. Alterna’s Hemp Straight Conditioner ($21 for 8.5 oz.) provides maximum conditioning agents, radiance and protection for wavy or curly hair. Alterna’s Hemp Seed Straightening Balm ($12.90 for 5.1 oz.) is a thermal-styling créme gel that effectively straightens wavy or curly hair. True to Alterna’s innovative package design, each product is vibrant fuchsia making it easier to retail so consumers can purchase the entire collection.

The straight of it is that our ground breaking product line not only achieves stick-straight hair but “holds” the style. Alterna’s exclusive conditioning agents prevent moisture-related reversion of straightened hair back to curly. Environmental factors such as humidity sabotage straight hair! Therefore, a treatment that resists and blocks the hair’s porosity and normalizes its condition from root to end is desirable. The collection is formulated with Straight-Line Complex™ to smooth and soften curly or wavy hair into sleek, straight styles. So conserve your coiffe and define your do with Alterna’s new Hemp Straight Collection.

The Straight Solution

The Straight-Line Complex™ combines naturally-derived and technologically advanced ingredients to deliver optimal conditioning and manageability to straight hair. Hemp Straight reduces the blow out time needed to achieve pin straight hair with the proprietary polymer in the Planell Oil Coat. The Marula oils and Planell Oil Coat both act as heat protectants, so it will not harm the hair when using blow dryers or flat irons. Alterna’s new Hemp Straight Collection contains the following ingredients:

  • Conditioning agents serve to “hydrophobe” the hair and lock-in moisture that prevent straightened hair from going back to curly. Planell Oil is an excellent shield against external moisture such as humidity. Marula Oil builds a moisture barrier and maintains healthy hair.
  • Polymers in the Planell Oil Coat hold the straight style which results in less blow out time. Oleo-Phytokeratin offers heat protection, improving hair’s tensile strength and stretch. The low molecular weight allows for penetration into the hair which helps to maintain the style.
  • Hempseed Quat is a hair conditioning agent that effectively seals the hair from external moisture and increases shine.
  • The synergistic effect between the amino acids in Oleo-Phytokeratin boost hair radiance and shine resulting in lustrous tresses.

The bottom line is Alterna’s new Hemp Straight Collection relaxes curly hair without the damage caused by alternatives.
