Sigh...I just bought this and now I am conflicted. I read the reviews here and I ran out to buy it then I came back and read some more reviews and now I've read some bad reviews and I am feeling buyers remorse without even sampling the product...I hope this is a good conditioner because I have WAY TOOOOOOO MANY PRODUCTSSSSSSSSSSSSSS I have got to stop bouncing around and trying everything people talk about or I will seriously go broke and have to have a beauty product garage sale....sigggghhhhh
I would disagree that this is a heavy conditioner. It's really rather lightweight, especially compared to the All Soft shampoo. For deep conditioning in the All Soft line the Heavy Cream is what you want. Fine haired types can use this assuming you use it in moderation and do not slather a huge gob of it all over your hair from roots to ends. Because it is a lot lighter than the shampoo, if used alone it does not make your hair silky soft like the shampoo does. It could be good to use in conjunction with the shampoo if using a heavy shampoo AND conditioner would totally overwhelm your hair. This has the same crappy new packaging as the shampoo, with the flip top cap that easily breaks off. At least with the shampoo they put it in a clear container, not so with the conditioner.
This did not work for my fine hair. It is intended for thick hair. Its a shame because the smell is so tempting. Too bad but not for me.
This stuff is AWESOME. I love the smell (kind of like honey), I love what it does for my hair. I have highlighted, thick, slightly coarse shoulder-length hair that has a natural wave/curl. It frizzes up at the first hint of humidity and most conditioners just don't seem to weigh it down enough or be moisturizing enough or something. I have tried just about every shampoo/conditioner combo under the sun, from d/s brands to high-end and have found this one to work the best for me (at least so far). It's moderately priced in comparison to the Kerastase products I was using, but works at least as well for me as those did. Makes my hair soft, manageable, and flat (which to me is a good thing) when I use this in combination with the All Soft Shampoo and the All Soft Addictive Hair Transformer (which I *highly, highly* recommend)!
I also use flat iron on my hair. My hair is thick, coarse and stuborn. Majority of conditioners that claim to repair hair, make my hair fall out. This does not. Also, it makes my hair soft enough to style. Highly recommended with the combination of All Soft Shampoo.
My hair is too thin for this stuff. Weighs it down every time. The hairstylists all seem to love it though, as they all try to use this on me every time. I have to tell them NO, not for me. It weighs down my hair and takes days of clarifying to get it all out. If you have very thick, frizzy hair, this might be for you, but I would stay away otherwise.
I bought a trial size of this at ULTA..yes, it made my hair alittle softer then usual BUT my hair was much frizzier then usual as well..ill probably use finish the sample, but i highly doubt i'll ever purchase it again.
Redken All Soft saved my colored, medium-thick, slightly wavy long hair. My hair was very dry from coloring and this restored the moisture to it without leaving it feeling coated. Very expensive but I love it.
I was so hopeful after reading all the great reviews here...and so disappointed after trying this conditioner. My hair is exceptionally damaged and tangled...and I've been searching for some serious help. Unfortunately this was not it. It was no better for my hair than any of the drugstore brands (just worse for my wallet). My thin very damaged hair was still tangled and hard to comb after using this and didn't "look" any better than after using anyhting else. I think I'll actually be sticking to drugstore brands for a while...(words I thought I'd never say)
This the best conditioner I've tried - it leaves my re-bonded hair really soft and smooth. Plus it smells fantastic. And even though it's expensive I find that I only need to use a small amount, unlike other conditioners which need a huge big glob. *UPDATE* I still hold to my review, but I have since found out that Redken tests on animals, so I've stopped using this.
