This shampoo always makes my hair feel soft & look healthy. It's really great for chemically damaged hair, too!
I use the shampoo and condin. and it is great for my hair i have thin curly dry on the ends and oily on top hair. Its really hard to find good shampoo and condin. i got the redken for curly hair fresh curls or something and it dried my hair out and smelled like after shave.
This is a great shampoo if you color your hair highlite or heat style. Please note that this also has a lot of protein so you need to use something like All soft in between.If your hair feels dry it could be due to protein sensitivity or maybe your hair has enough protein.Anyway, Please use a good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner in between with this. My hair gets the slip when I use this. I have medium to thick hair that is usually a tangled mess with other brands.Once or twice a week is probably enough on this Redken brand though. Proteins strengthen your hair and too much can make it hard or break.So you must balance it out. Watch about buying the suff at the local drugstore though. I did that a few months ago and it was NOT the same formula.When I repurchased at the salon I could tell I had the real thing again. No i do not work for Redken.lol Most reputable salons will refund your money if you do not like it anyway.Always ask before you purchase at the salon too. Like others who have bleached hair and use this ,it DOES work.Don't use the same thing all of teh time though. You should alternate with protein and moisture for balance.The anti-snap is good too if you have dyed "died" hair that breaks easily.
This line of products has saved my hair many times over the years. My hair is fine as well as prone to breakage but after a week or two of washing with this, following up with the Rescue Recovery, then condition with All Soft, my hair is strong and feels great not to mention there's much less breakage and dryness.
This contains protein so this is not meant to moisturize your hair, it's just meant to clean and strengthen your hair if it is damaged so always use a moisturizing conditioner after this shampoo otherwise you'll end up with Strawhead Syndrome.
That said, I've been using Redken products for at least 6 years now and switch to others and clarify once in a while for maybe a month since my hair seems to 'get used' to anything I use over a long period of time but I always ALWAYS come back to the Extreme and All Soft lines of products.
I got this shampoo and the Kerastase equivalent and I definitely prefer the Kerastase version. The Extreme shampoo is probably a great product but the proteins made my scalp itch intensely and the scent is very strong, almost cloying. I would not repurchase because of this.
I love this range so much my hair was breaking off due to a very bad bleaching accident i had in mid January and only just recently purchased this about two months ago and my hair is now looking better than my hair did before the bleach accident,no more breaking off,i use this with the anti-anap leave in and the conditioner,my hair is getting really long beacause it is not snapping anymore.just wish i found this earlier.This will defanitely be a permanent shampoo on my bathroom shelf.
I use this about two or three times a week. I have fine hair, but alot of it and it has been coloured many times. I love this shampoo. It smells AMAZING! And it makes my hair managaable and shiny. It doesnt add any buildup, but it has dried my hair out when i used it two days in a row. That is my only complaint!
I do like this shampoo. A little goes a long way, it foams up so well. The smell is nice and is not over powering. Sadly I can;t use this every wash otherwise my hair gets so dry and brittle. So i prefer to use it as a 'treatment' shampoo instead. I have seen some improvement in my hair strength.
This is my new HG shampoo. Like another reviewer said, it's not advertised for fine or oily hair, or for any other hair type for that matter except "mechanically or chemically damaged" hair. But I find that it gives my thin, fine, crazy oily, and flat hair exceptional volume, softness, and clarity. I can even get away with skipping a day!!! Also, I've recently found that when used with the rest of the products in the Redken Extreme line, it works wonders at repairing and preventing damage, since all the products are loaded with proteins.
I haven't had hair like this since before I hit puberty, when my hair and face got oily to the max and I began abusing box dyes. So you can imagine how happy I am. YMMV but I'm over the moon about this new discovery. It smells pretty nice, too. I'll be buying again when I run out for sure. Not sure when that will be tho since a little goes such a long way for me, and there's no reason to lather twice. It's not sulfate free, unfortunately, but with results like these I can overlook that.
Love, love, LOVE this shampoo! I get a little panicy every time I run out. Even though it's not advertised as a shampoo for fine hair it gives my hair loads of strength and volume. My sister who has thick and uncontrollable hair loves it just as much as I do - apparently it's a multi-tasker.
I use it with the extreme mask as a conditioner. I'll never use a different shampoo again!
