    Comments about ALTERNA BAMBOO Men Thickening Gel Lotion with SPF 15 Scalp Shield, 3 oz:

    I tried this product because the Alterna Hemp Modeling Clay was discontinued. Biggest disappointment in a styling product EVER. It's like trying to use a light lotion in your hair. It has zero styling capability and zero hold. It's basically an SPF 15 lotion for your scalp - that's it. I hope Alterna realizes how big of a mistake they made discontinuing the Hemp Modeling Clay. Their Bamboo products are no kind of replacement.

        Comments about ALTERNA BAMBOO Men Thickening Gel Lotion with SPF 15 Scalp Shield, 3 oz:

        I bought this for my husband who wanted a hair product that also contained a sunscreen moisturiser for his scalp. He is very pleased with it. Prior to this he liked DuWop Hands 2 Hair before it was discontinued. Normal sunscreen is too visible in thinning hair so this is perfect. It has a very mild scent (hard to describe).
