Hair -Redken -One United 25 Benefits

foto

I am not a fan of leave-in treatments because my hair is fine and I have to be super careful of what I use or else I wind up with hair that feels and looks greasy like I haven’t washed it for a week. But this was on sale and I figured why not, I was looking for something lightweight that would help protect my hair from blow drying and Redken makes sooo many good claims about it, and it can be used in all different kinds of ways to boot - even as a rinse out conditioner.
When I first got it home I misted a few sprays all over my head knowing I was going to wash my hair the next morning and if it were greasy then ok. But I got some on my face and neck, which immediately made me start to itch. Ew, my bad, I gotta be careful with anything fragranced anyway, and it smells nice. So I wiped it off with a wet washcloth and all was better. And oh boy was my hair was like silk the next morning, no need to condition after shampooing!
My next try was spritzing it twice into my hands and massaging it into my wet shampooed hair, following with a blow dry of just my roots, which always brings out some wave in my ends. This worked excellent! Soft, bouncy hair and no itching because I was more careful with where it went. I spritzed my hair brush lightly and used it to smooth out fly-aways after my hair finished drying and it pulled out some of my waves, but my hair was still bouncy and looked smooth.
I will definitely be bringing it into the shower to try as it says and give it more of a chance. My only real complaint is the amount of fragrance it has - is it just me, or does it seem like the more $$$ I pay for something, the more it contains? So one lippie off, I see no need for this much fragrance, regardless of wether it’s pleasant or not. But it is otherwise a nice lightweight product which I probably won’t rebuy as I will be looking at similar spray-on treatments that may not be so strongly scented.

Conditioner -Redken -Frizz Dismiss Conditioner

on 9/17/2018 7:05:00 PM

I have thick, virgin hair of perhaps 2c nature with a scalp that produces very little oil, hence my hair is always naturally dried out and has a somewhat coarse feel or texture. What drew me to this is it is Redken's second most moisturizing line. Redken has a PDF for professional users (though it's easy to access) that compares moisture and protein level of all their haircare lines. Frizz Dismiss has a low protein level and a high moisture level. The only one with a higher moisture level is Curvaceous. Things like All Soft and such are middle of the road, especially when you take into account they have protein technology and such. My hair doesn't respond well to just plain moisturizing products, I go for smoothing because they usually are moisturizing and help to make my hair feel nicer than what it actually is.

PROS: While this line is for humidity protection and smoothing and the website for it shows sleek/smoothed out styles, you would think the conditioner would be heavy or straightening, but it's not! It says for "all hair types" and I have to agree! I have been trying to wear my hair in curly and wavy styles and I've got some of my best finger swirls/curls out of just AIR DRYING with this conditioner and a water based serum in my hair! It really does not obliterate hair's texture or excessively smooth it out, but it does help it to feel a bit smoother. It has enough de-volumizing that thick hair needs without going overboard. I feel like a lot of things are either really heavy or too light", but this is a better balance. I'm quite surprised.

CONS: Perhaps a little overpriced for what you get? Redken likes to tout lots of technology, but it seems very buzzwordy and looking at the ingredients, it looks like this conditioner is mainly mineral oil and some beauty oils. The mineral oil is what does it though I believe. It's vilified from time to time in cosmetics, but it really is one of the best sealants to keep moisture in. Also, the scent of this is overwhelming. Yes, it's like perfume, or make that cologne, it has an almost masculine vibe just like the rest of the Frizz Dismiss line. It's something to consider.

OVERALL: This is a special conditioner. I've yet to find anything that really moisturizes my hair in the long term or enough so that I like my hair on day 1, but I may just buy this again. What I am most impressed by is it's quite moisturizing and provides a BIT of weight that thick hair needs, but not so that that it kills my loose waves and curls.

I didn't care for this conditioner. It felt great when applying to my thick, coarse hair. But as soon as I let my hair air dry, my hair turned into a frizzy mess!! It also seemed to dry my hair out, as I ended up with my hair feeling like straw. Definitely don't recommend based on my own personal experience with this product.

Shampoo -Redken -Frizz Dismiss Shampoo

I bought this shampoo in hopes of it helping to soften my hair while also hoping that it would cut back on the frizz from the summer heat/humidity.

This did NOT work for my thick, course hair at all. It only made matters worse, as I found on day 1 of washing and air drying my hair, it felt like straw. By day 2, my roots were oily and I felt like I wanted to wash my hair again (typically I prefer to only wash every other day to prevent over drying.)

Definitely won't repurchase. I was actually happier with Dove Daily Moisture Shampoo which just happens to be cheaper as well!

This shampoo might be sulphate free, but it stripped my hair of all natural oils and made my scalp itch like hell. I got the same results from this, as I get from any regular sulphate based drugstore shampoo.

I have never bought a shampoo/conditioner as a result of a sample. I would normally use the sample, then never think of it again, and then there was Redken All Soft...

This past Monday I used the sample without any thought or attention to what it was I was using, I've been using up all my travel sizes and samples for a few weeks now, and this was the 2nd to last sample I had left. The first day experience I thought it was nice, but nothing amazing, but it was Day 2 that sold me... my hair was still beautifully clean, not tangled, not dry and very soft. SOLD. At the first opportunity I went to the haircare shop and bought both the shampoo and conditioner.

For reference my hair is wavy, frizzy, oily roots and dry, split ends.

This shampoo's effectiveness was fine. My hair felt soft and I had no irritation. But that SMELL. YUCK!! I find most Redken shampoos are very mildly fragranced (sometimes TOO mild), but this one is over-the-top old lady smell. Very synthetically perfumy - I can't think of anything in nature to describe that fragrance, it's just bad.


Shampoo -Redken -Hair Cleansing Cream

Being that I am a hairdresser, I have used quite a few "clarifying" shampoos, and this is one of my favorites. This product is great for oily scalp buildup, or for people that use a lot of hair products. Deep cleansing shampoos shouldn't be used every single time you wash your hair unless your only washing your hair once a week, and if it's dry you still need to alternate it with a moisturizerising shampoo. Love the scent to me it smells a bit lemony but not overpowering.

This is the absolute worst shampoo & conditioner. Made my scalp & face burn like fire. As I sit here writing this review my scalp is literally on fire.. I cannot wait to wash my hair to remove what residue is left on my scalp from this product.. terrible! Will be returning both shampoo & conditioner


Conditioner -Redken -All Soft Conditioner

I'm kind of fussy when it comes to my haircare products and recently I've been on the hunt for a good conditioner. I did purchase this in the old formulation about 3 years back and also the latest one more recently. Preferred the previous, not so much the new one. The pros: definitely adds a shine and helps to detangle and keep frizz under control, although the effect does not last long (probably something to do with the fact that I live in Florida!). Also the addition of Argan Oil which in my experience is one of the most beneficial oils for your hair (I often just use it neat from one of those inexpensive bottles at the organic store). The cons: none to speak of really, I do find the formulation could be better as it used to be. Other than that a somewhat decent conditioner but not a re-purchase for me as there are better ones in terms of efficacy aswell as more natural ones out there.

Shampoo -Redken -All Soft Shampoo

I have an unusual scalp, very greasy after one day and severely dry hair otherwise. I don’t think you can judge this shampoo after a few times use, my hair gradually got better, my scalp as well. Had I judged it after using it twice then I’d say my hair was soft and smelled nice, but it didn’t do anything for my greasy scalp. However after long term use my scalp just felt better and better. I recently had to switch to Maria nila since I ran out and now I realize how much I liked my redken all soft!! I think this shampoo is amazing 😊

Styling Products -Redken -Frizz Dismiss Rebel Tame FPF40

I bought this because I work in a very humid environment and I have thick hair that is dry and responds horribly to humidity. Frizz isn't really the worst thing in my world, but my hair feels SO instantly dried out in high humidity, so I purchased this just for the humidity protection properties. I was looking for something that I could use like a leave in cream on wet hair, just air dry and go.

PROS: You know, this isn't a "good" thing but this is a heavily scented product and it smells quite nice. I like it. Also, a little goes a long way.

CONS: This can be heavy. My waves can be a bit loose or delicate but this will kinda of knock them out. I also don't think it does really much for the humidity either. I should have gone for the one below, the Instant Deflate with a frizz protection factor of 30. That one is more silicone based. And although I think my hair is on the coarse-side, I would say this is more for hardcore coarse texture like really curly hair or Afro textures. When I am air drying my hair with this in it, it can look like I have a straightening product in it, no joke.

UPDATE: August 14, 2018. I'm downgrading this to 1 star. It does NOT work for me. I bet I could put the entire bottle of this in my hair on a humid day and my hair would feel just as dry. Really, my hair feels like hell. My hair is healthy and on the thick side, but humidity makes it feel coarse and hay-like and this does nothing to remedy it. I also get that lovely halo of random hairs in the top. I still am a bit perplexed as to why this is a water based product when it's for frizz protection of a high level. Like I mentioned above, the one below this is silicone based and water free. That might work better for me. Also, it will not kill your texture. I used it with a lighter conditioner, and my hair still waved and curled. It will help to straighten it out, and it doesn't give confidence as its drying, but it actually doesn't kill texture like I originally thought.

The reformulation of this product was truly a tragedy. I would have continued to purchase this conditioner and the shampoo for the rest of my life had they not changed the formula. It used to be you only needed the smallest amount of conditioner and it would detangle your hair effortlessly, in under a minute for my waist length hair. It left my hair extremely soft, shiny, bouncy, and strong. I'd be the girl known for her hair, it was by far my greatest physical attribute. Now I'm at a loss. I haven't found something I love as much as the old formula and I'm not sure I ever will. I will always consider this my lost love conditioner. Why did you have to change anything redken? It was perfect before - now there's $5 drugstore conditioners better than this. Please, please, please bring it back. Listen to your customers, you would have had revenue from me for the next 60+ years I would be alive had you not reformulated this. Now? I'm forced to look elsewhere

Shampoo -Redken -Color Extend Magnetics

This is the best shampoos & conditioner set I have found for coloured hair. This product has made my colour remain looking like it is fresh from the salon and has really made my hair feel so much softer and healthier. Although this product is on the pricier side it preserves colour perfectly meaning I don't have to go to the salon for touch ups as often, saving me a lot more in the long run.

Also, I think it is important to note that less is more with this product. You really only need the smallest amount, and it has much better results than over applying it.

Shampoo -Redken -Blonde Idol Sulfate-Free Shampoo

I freaking love this shampoo. I’m a colour treated blonde (natural dark blonde/mousy brown) with fine straight hair. I’ve been using drugstore shampoo for a really long time because it was so habitual for me. I’ve never even considered high end shampoos because I thought the prices were unjustified. My problem was, I would wash my hair, blow dry it or let it dry naturally, and it’s amazing and soft. Then I would go to bed, and the next morning my hair felt dry, snappy and frizzy. My hairdresser suggested this to me, and alas I found it on sale. And let me tell you, it fixed ALL my problems.
First thought: FINALLY A SHAMPOO FOR BLONDES THAT ISNT PURPLE!
Second thought: Rich, beautiful lather.
Third thought: Sulfate free- extra points.

I use this once or twice a week, and use a clarifying shampoo once a week (I train 5 times a week and am a sweat ball). I also use Redken anti snap treatment with every wash. I feel like my hair is literally saying thank you. It’s so much softer, shinier, manageable, and hydrated. No longer shall I neglect my strands. This shampoo is a big yes from me!
