Shampoo -Redken -Color Extend Magnetics

This is the first sulphate free shampoo and conditioner I have used. My hair is thick, blonde and i get highlights every 4-5 months. I just repurchased the shampoo and conditioner in the largest size when Ulta had them on sale recently.

This smells so good. I love the scent. It's a decent shampoo. It doesn't dry my hair out and gives it plenty of body but the one thing I don't like about it is that after I use it several times I start feeling like it's not really cleaning my hair well or like it is building up. So i also a non sulphate free shampoo after I've used this about 10 times, just to help eliminate any build up. It doesn't take much to suds my whole head, but since it's sulphate free I always feel the need to shampoo twice. I also use the conditioner and it's ok. Don't expect a heavy conditioning treatment from it, if your hair is really dry, use another product that is a deep conditioner that you leave on for 30 minutes or so. Neither the shampoo or the conditioner weigh my hair down or make it oily.

Years ago, I was a huge fan of Redken products, then they dropped all of the ones I liked and came out with tons of new ones and I never liked any of them. This is the first one in many years that I have repurchased. I'm really not sure if it makes my highlights fade less. I still like my Kérastase better, even though my hair stylist swears by the Redken Sulphate free MagneticS, so after I finish the 2 large sizes I will decide whether to stick with it or dump it, but for now, I'm liking it and it does smell really nice.

Shampoo -Redken -high rise volume lifting shampoo

This product was good for the first couple of uses, then all of a sudden it made my hair feel lifeless, oily and a straight up mess. I bought this shampoo to help me with my flat hair. Never going to buy this again.

Shampoo -Redken -All Soft Shampoo

This is the first ever Redken shampoo that doesn't mess with my scalp. No dryness, no flakiness, no eczema - perfect for daily (I wash my hair every other day) use.
I like the scent, I love how it lathers. I don't notice my hair to be softer, I don't really need that, but it seems to be moisturizing without making my roots greasy, yet it's impossible to brush through the hair without a conditioner.
After a miserable failure of Sulfate Free Shampoos on my hair I've very happy to discover that easily available Redken All Soft gives me everything I need the most days. I only struggle when I need to do some out of the shower hair treatment that requires washing the hair and brushing it wet without using any other product.


Shampoo -Redken -Extreme Shampoo (new formula)

Ok, before I head out there with 'this is the most wonderful' etc etc, this is my first use of the shampoo, conditioner and extreme length sealer. A little background. I'm 53, on Hormone Therapy (I feel this has a big impact on hair/skin). My hair is very fine, very straight, mid length and coloured regularly with high and lo lites at the salon. It is lifeless and I'm always trying to find the product that will make my hair look at least half decent. A bit of oomph wouldn't go amiss either. My bathroom cupboard is full of 'let's try this product!' fails. Hmmmm. An expensive pastime that baffels my 'one bottle in the shower' hubby (oh to be a man sometimes!). In the search for a bit of root lift, I was talked into buying a heated styling brush and after looking at youtube videos I was convinced that this was the way forward. Like a complete numpty, I bought a fairly expensive brush, got it home and excitedly plugged it in. 'Oh, it only has one heat setting, I guess that's ok' I thought, as I happily oomphed my limp hair. For a week I happily went about my oomphing until day 6, when I noticed my once sleekish hair looked like dried noodles. Yep, totally my fault as I didn't use a heat protector. Duh. NOW WHAT? So, after MONTHS of trying this shampoo, that conditioner, hair oils, leave in conditioners, sprays with biotin, products that cost an absolute fortune and always ending in disappointed sighs, I popped along to Chatters to talk to them. Intitially they helped me choose a Matrix Biolage product but that didn't work out at all so I swapped it (they let you do that even if you've used a little!) for another Biolage product, better ingredients, for frizzy hair. I think it was called So Smooth. That really dried my hair out. So with a heavy heart I went back and explained to a really lovely SA (they're all lovely in my local Chatters) what my hair problems are. Long story short, she went straight to this combination of shampoo. conditioner and extreme length sealer. I went home, quite excited. Then looked on MUA (I love this site) and to my horror there were really mixed reviews. Most people explained the obvious that protein shampoos can cause protein build up and can leave hair looking dry and brittle. Some even had this problem from the very first time. I (almost) took it straight back to the store but then thought I'd try it as everybody's hair is different, isn't it?! Worse case scenario is I take it back if my hair doesn't like it. Well, I just finished drying my hair and all I can say is YIPPEE DO DAH!! My hair looks and feels amazing!! Soft, glossy, less broken. Whaaaaat!! Here's the thing though. From looking at other reviews (not just on MUA) I realised that it's probably best to use this new regime max twice a week and use another, more moisturing product the other days. So that's what I'm going to do. I will use an argan/cococnut oil based line for the other days and report back in a few weeks. For now though, I wish I wasn't home from work today. I almost want to go out and flick my hair like a shampoo commercial. Ha!! Watch this space.....

Update.... I'm still using this every two days. Loving how it's made my hair feel soft and silky. I wouldn't say it's 'repaired' my hair, I think that's an impossibility but I doesn't look as dry or broken. I'm trying to hold off from visiting the hair salon for colour retouch, even though my grey roots are about an inch thick (oh the horror) so maybe that has helped. I will continue to use this product and vow to NEVER use a heated blow-dry brush again.

Styling Products -Redken -Quick Tease 15 Backcombing Finishing Spray

on 1/17/2018 7:12:00 PM

My hairdresser used this on me with great success. So, I decided to buy a can for home use. It's very hard to use if you're not a hair care expert. I sprayed it on my roots, and too much came out, and my hair looked stiff. The name for this product is absolutely spot on. The hair absolutely looks and feels backcombed within an inch of its life. Combing this stuff out was nearly impossible, and it has to be damaging to your hair. I recommend leaving this product to the pros.

Hair Treatments -Redken -Frizz Dismiss Mask

Sad replacement for the original Smooth Down Butter Treat. I couldn’t get into the Smooth Lock either, which smelled gross, just like Frizz Dismiss. Do yourself a favor and pass on this one. Go with Redken Heavy Cream instead.

I really loved the Smooth Lock line but that seems to have been discontinued. The All Soft line is good, It is very moisturizing on my dry, heat styled, highlighted blonde, and natural (dry!)gray hair. The shampoo smells nice and leave my hair soft and fairly tangle free. I have been alternating with the Extreme shampoo and conditioners and that seems to have helped my hair a lot. I also do an Aphogee 2 step TX and use Olaplex about every 4-6 weeks.

I like this product because it makes my hair stronger. I have bleached damaged hair and it helps my hair feel more manageable. I wouldn't buy it if my my hair isn't damaged though. It's so pricey.


Conditioner -Redken -high rise volume lifting conditioner

My stylist suggested this to me when I asked for a conditioner that would condition my fine, colored hair without weighing it down. I bought the big bottle, and I have been using it for quite a while now, so I have used it long enough to form a good opinion. I am not a big fan. It is not very conditioning. It's ok in that respect, but not great. It doesn't really do much for volume either. I really have to be careful with how much I use. My hair can fall flat easily with this, just as with most conditioners. My hair does comb out well with it, so that is good. I am seeing some breakage, and I am not sure if this is what is causing it, but it is a likely culprit. My hair just feels more fragile. I really like my Suave Almond and Shea Butter far, far better. I need to go back to that and get my hair back in good condition ( and save my money).Why do I think spending more money will make my hair happy?

Hair Treatments -Redken -All Soft HEAVY CREAM

I really like this conditioner. I have used everything, including Olaplex. This really seems to have moisturized my dry hair better than any product I have used since the original Wella Kolesterol with a heat cap. I was reluctant to try it as I was irritated at Redken for discontinuing the Smooth Lock line. It is expensive, but worth it. I may get three used out of my tube which almost never happens as I have a big head and a lot of hair,lol! My hair is naturally gray and brown mix, heavily highlighted blonde, and I frequently (several times weekly) use heat styling, for the record.

I use this after the Redken Hair Cleansing Cream and Matrix Total Results Brass Off Blue-Violet shampoo (I always use one shampoo after the other) and it makes my naturally dark brunette hair that I have bleached every month super soft and silky. I never put this in my roots since my hair is short and it's a bit heavy for that but it's perfect for my ends.

Styling Products -Redken -Diamond Oil Glow Dry

I was intrigued by this products beautiful bottle and it’s promises to cut drying time.

Unfortunately there was no tester available in store, I asked the staff and they said they couldn’t for this product? Red flag there. Should have known better, I wouldn’t had purchased it otherwise.. I did not like the smell after purchase at all.. to me it smelt musky, like a mix of bad musk perfume and mothballs. :-/

If You are considering purchasing this product, DO NOT unless the salon can provide a sample to try out first. (Shouldn’t they do this anyway?)

It didn’t do much for my long wavy blonde hair, did not particularly notice any faster blowdrying time or shine. It actually felt quite drying, like alcohol in my hair. :-/ After a few months ended up emptying the bottle and purchasing cheaper and better stuff. I kept the pretty bottle though, hopefully can get my use out of it ..as it is VERY Pricey. :-/ Save Your money.

Shampoo -Redken -Hair Cleansing Cream

Very nice and pleasant shampoo. Can't say I could detect a miraculous effect, yet the hair feels nice and soft after using it. I was afraid that the cleanser might strip the hair off all the oils alongside with the dirt and build up, or that it would leave the hair greasy as it is a cream. Yet none of the fears were confirmed. Only positive experience so far.

I used this before the reformulation, and I've used it after, and it was mediocre both times. I get much better results from drugstore conditioners, this did nothing for me. The All Soft shampoo, on the other hand, is definitely worth checking out.

This has been my go-to for a few years now, not sure why I didn't think of writing a review before! The All Soft shampoo is the best of the Redken line and the only one that's actually worth the price (their conditioners are lackluster to terrible). They reformulated this awhile back but it's still great if a bit different. It's a very gentle shampoo, leaves my hair feeling clean and soft, and it has a nice scent.
