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!

Hair Color -Redken -Blonde Idol Blue Oil Lightening System

on 6/9/2018 11:31:00 AM

I used Clairol 7th Stage for years, and when they discontinued it, I about lost my mind. I've tried all of the "drabbing" bleaches out there, and this is by far, the closest to 7th Stage I've found. I'm not someone who's going to use a toner, even though my hair can go quite brassy, and like 7th Stage, I didn't need one with this product. My hair felt fantastic after highlighting, this is pretty gentle, but very effective. I tried everything at Sally's, L'Oreal Super Blue was not bad, but still left my hair a bit brassy, this is much better and worth the much higher cost. I found it on SleekShop.com.

Even though it has ammonia, the smell is quite pleasant, and not very strong. If you've used bleaches without a drabber, this may not pull fast enough for you, and it's not quite as fast as 7th Stage, but if you loved 7th Stage, this is one to try. If 7th Stage was still available, I would be using it, because this isn't quite there, but better than everything else I've tried. For reference I'm a level 6 - one other note, the powder is blue, not the oil, which is what made 7th Stage so great.

Looooove this whole line. I have shampoo, conditioner, conditoning masque, Cat spray and Anti-snap. I just did a DIY bleach job....multiple processes over last few weeks to get the colour I wanted. While I didn’t completely damage it, it sure was on the edge. This has made my hair soft & shiny and it feels stronger. The shampoo is so silky it almost feels conditioned right after rinsing. Doesn’t seem to weigh hair down. HG status for me and smell is light and lovely.


Hair Treatments -Redken -Extreme Mega Mask

Redken's Extreme Mega Mask is a combo protein/moisture treatment mask. This is something you'd use if your hair is damaged or distressed from chemicals or styling. If your hair is already in great conditon, then you probably wouldn't want to bother with a product like this. I found that the Extreme Mega Mask does a decent job of repairing damaged hair, but it's not a miracle product IMO. And for the price tag, it needs to be one!

Also, I find that this leaves my hair a bit weighed-down and coated-feeling. I prefer Joico's Revitaluxe for my protein/moisture combo treatment. It gives me excellent results without weighing my hair down

The packaging for all of the Mega Masks (I believe there are 3 different kinds) is annoying and difficult to use. They're in a dual-chambered tube with one product in the inner container and another product in the outer container. There's the creamy mask part that treats the hair and the clear glossy part that's supposed to seal in the treatment. You squeeze the tube, and both products are supposed to dispense at the same time (in the correct proportion to each other) and work their magic on your hair. Except you pretty much always end up with too much of one or the other. It's gimmicky and it makes using the mask harder than it needs to be. I loathe the packaging this product has! I decided to just squeeze out all the contents into an old sour cream tube and be done with it.

At any rate, I prefer Joico Revitaluxe and I won't buy this again.


Shampoo -Redken -Redken - Scalp Relief Dandruff Control Shampoo

on 5/28/2018 4:37:00 PM

doesn't lather the best but we all know, lather doesn't equal clean. it has a super fresh scent that is very invigorating. it's white in color, semi-thin in consistency. I wash with this daily, leaving the minimal lather it gives in for the duration of my shower, until the end, when I'm ready to rinse my body wash off. my hair feels a little dried out but nothing super crazy. usually with dandruff shampoos from the drugstore I'm used to them leaving my hair waxy and weighed down, so this is actually not too bad. I have bleached hair that doesn't get yellow or brassy with this either. my scalp is pretty itchy but the nape of my neck makes me want to scratch it to death. this relieves it immediatly and I have little to no desire to scratch anything. I don't have any dandruff or flaking, so I can't comment on that aspect. for the price this is very worth it for the results!

Hair Treatments -Redken -All Soft HEAVY CREAM

I've got waist length, thick, rebonded hair. Back then before I started rebonding, my hair was coarse, frizzy and unmanageable. Yes, the trend is relaxing and not rebonding, but relaxing doesn't tame my frizz at all.

I've been repurchasing this for more than 15 years now. Absolute hair HG!

I went through a phase where I'd want to try every other hair treatment, but I'd always come back to this.

Leaves my hair manageable, soft, tangle free and I really really love the smell (though I had an ex who'd tell me my hair stinks everytime I used this).

Now that I'm over the experimental hair treatment buying phase, I keep telling myself I can do without this, but at some point I'd feel like I need it anyway.

Honestly, even if it does nothing for my hair, I'd still use it for the wonderful smell.

I find that there's no difference in how soft my hair feels if I left it on for a longer period of time vs rinsing it right off after applying.

Shampoo -Redken -Clean Brew

on 5/24/2018 4:58:00 AM

I have really short, bleached hair that the body is super dry but the scalp is really greasy. I use this once a week to clarify and it has made a world of a difference. my blonde is brighter, my scalp is super refreshed while the body of hair is so smooth. I use to use Redken's original clarifying shampoo and that was just way too drying. This is a lot more gentle while still controlling my scalp oil. I will say though since this is targeted towards men it has a very musky, citrus scent while the original clarifying shampoo smells like straight up lemons.

I really don't know how I feel about this shampoo and conditioner... I have fine hair with very dry, split ends from 5 previous dye jobs which I am currently growing out. The ends are so fine and dry that they just break off. I thought my hair needed some protein to stop the breakage, and I love Redken products so I went and bought this, but this in combination with the conditioner really hasn't done anything. I've just finished my second bottle and I won't be repurchasing. It smells good and it lathers nicely, but I feel like it may have even made my hair more dry and brittle, crunchy even. I mean I guess it makes it feel better than some cheap, nasty stuff would but I really have not noticed any difference. Maybe it's just my hair type or something... Is it possible that the protein could actually be making my hair more dry and crunchy..? Because I've heard this can happen. I've changed to their All Soft shampoo and conditioner and I'm just going to grow it out until I can cut off all the dry ends, they're driving me mad! Protein clearly isn't having much of an effect on reducing the breakage.

Hair type: Fine, color treated, slight natural wave

I'm not a fan of this shampoo. It's too rich (heavy) for my hair and by the next day I had to re-wash it. Plus my hair felt sticky. I would not repurchase. It costs around $20-23 Canadian

As someone with dry, damaged hair, I was very excited to try this shampoo out. My expectations were high because of the price, but honestly it's pretty much just repackaged drugstore shampoo. I;ve been using this shampoo for about 2 months now, and I have seen some reuslts. My dryness used to be visable, like my hair looked frizzy and had that damaged, messy look, and thankfuly that is gone. However, I still have breakage and get a lot of split ends for a product that practically ensures against that. I've used Pantene, Loreal, Tresemme, ect, and this shampoo is no better at all. Unless you're willing to spend the extra money and really want a change in hair care, you're not missing out on anything special with this shampoo.

This is not a terrible shampoo. It cleans my haIr nicely and my hair color has lasted longer than anticipated.

I never thought I'd rate a product down (way down) due to packaging, but here you go. (If I could give the packaging a zero I would.) This bottle cap cannot be removed without breaking it. Seriously. I tried to wrench it loose at one point and broke the lid-part, cutting my finger on the rough edge.

Now, maybe you're not one of those folks who wants to remove a shampoo bottle lid, but it can be very handy to be able to do so.

Why would Redken do this? Oh, yeah... if you can't get all the shampoo out, you'll buy another bottle sooner.

Or, in my case, never again.

I have used this shampoo three times. I had huge expectations for it given all the reviews and don’t get me wrong - this is a good shampoo but I am a bit underwhelmed with the whole line as it is not as hydrating as I expected. But back to the shampoo:

I shampoo my hair twice every wash. This shampoo has a lovely texture and scent. It lathers a lot and it is nice to work with. It feels luxurious and the best thing is - it doesn’t make my roots any oilier than any other shampoo, even volumizing shampoos (still need to wash every other day though). The big con is that it leaves my hair feeling a bit dry and knotty after rinsing it off, and a bit frizzy when dry. Not what I expected of a shampoo named ”all soft”. After shampooing I use the conditioner or the mask from the same line (review coming soon). My hair isn’t softer than usual and it doesn’t look or feel better/healthier than before.

4 lippies for the beautiful packaging, the scent, the texture and for not making my roots oilier than usual. I will probably not repurchase though.

Shampoo -Redken -Hair Cleansing Cream

Holy Grail! This shampoo is a miracle worked. My hair is straight, blonde but getting ashier as I get older so I get highlights. I've been using sulphate free shampoos most of the time and I just do not like them, but I do want to keep my highlights from prematurely fading so I use them. We also have extremely hard water in our area. I do my final rinse under filtered water(which is only cold water) but still, my hair just never looks like it does when at our previous home where the water was softer. When I got this and used it the first time I was blown away. My hair once again felt like hair, shiny, silky, bouncy and not weighted down. It also smells very nice and did not dry my hair out like most clarifying shampoos do. I now use it about every 3rd time I shampoo. Ulta had buy 2 get one free so I got 2 of those and a bottle of Magnetics conditioner since I was almost out of the conditioner.
Beware if you order online, because they sent me Clean Maniac instead and I had to go down to the ULTA store and exchange it.

This shampoo weighs down my hair and leaves a residue over time, which looks greasy. I also suspect it irritates my scalp a bit, as I get some flakiness after a few uses. I've used this on and off for a few weeks at a time, and I always end up going back to something else.

I tried to use this up when I wash my bangs in the sink between hair washes, but it just weighs my hair down too much, and it makes it seem too dull.

The bottle is also annoying, the shape makes it hard to control how much can be squeezed out, and the lid is so small that if you want to store it upside down, it topples over easily.

I consider this the mildest but equally effective clarifying shampoo I've used to date. Smells clean and fresh and does get rid of build up but doesn't make your hair feel stripped.

Sometimes I do like shampoos like Neutrogena Clarifying that feels like it is stripping your hair of EVERYTHING but I find I can only use those once every other week or so. I color my hair so have to typically use more gentle products so this one I like because I can rotate frequently with my other more gentle shampoos.

Nice product and I recommend you buy during Ulta's liter size shampoo sale = it's about half price then.
