I used this product years ago and didn't like it, but I was so desperate to fix my dry brittle nasty feeling hair I repurchased the all soft shampoo and conditioner. Wow! This stuff was amazing. It made my hair super soft and tangle free/manageable in just one wash (I used the same leave-in/treatment products I always do, so it was definitely the shampoo and conditioner). I looked into it online and apparently it used to be made with avocado oil and now it's made with argan oil. The argan oil really agrees with my hair and must be the difference. I will continue to use this. My hair is fine and brittle, and this works great. I am going to go out and get the liter bottles now that I know I like it!
Edit: The shampoo I liked had the avocado oil (conditioner was argan). When I used the argan oil shampoo it left my hair waxy and worse than if I hadn't washed it at all. I actually re-showered even after blowdrying my hair because it was so disgusting.

I really noticed the effects of this and the conditioner after 2nd use and wow this stuff really made my hair feel incredibly soft and smooth. My hair is dry and prone to tangling and because of this I have had quite alot of hair breakage. I have changed my hair routine by switching up with a protein based shampoo and conditioner(I use joico k pak) and also redkens all soft duo, as well as a clarifying shampoo(joico) once a month. This has been great in the shower and has limited the amount of hair breakage i have when detangling my hair after shampoo (I also use tangle teezer). I leave the conditioner in for about 5 mins while i exfoliate and wash my body and after rinsing my hair feels great. When I let my hair dry naturally after this and it feels nice and smooth and not fluffy or frizzy like with other shampoos. Really a fantastic option! Definitely recommend it.

I've been using this for a couple of weeks along with the All Soft Heavy Cream. Can't believe I've never tried it before. It does make my hair feel very soft. So soft that styling is a bit more difficult but that's okay. I really think these two products are going to be very helpful in keeping my hair in good condition.

RECOMMENDED FOR: oily + limp hair. Any other combo will likely not need/want the airiness and lift.
THE FULL REVIEW:
A lot of the negative reviews seem to come from folks with dry/treated hair. As someone with almost exactly opposite that, namely oily/half-treated-half-virgin hair, this stuff is awesome. Over the last few years I've spent way too much money trying sulfate-free, organic, silk-infused etc. shampoos. Heck, even tried that no-poo thing for a few months and came out looking like a drippy hobo! I've got those lovely genetics that basically give me that much sought after greasy look no matter what, plus a high enough forehead that I pretty much need bangs to not look like an alien. So I struggled with bangs that became oily and nasty almost as soon as they were dry from washing, regardless of hair/face product used.
Anyway, after trying many expensive brands and reading every ingredient label ever, I realized that my hair always felt the best after going to a particular salon. Since they used Redken, I gave it a try on my own, and lo and behold, found something that keeps my hair in shape for an entire day! My naturally limp and weighed down hair finally has some body to it, and my SO agrees it's tuggably soft ;)
Pricewise, it's not the most expensive out there, but definitely not the cheapest. It seems to contain less water than grocery store brands, and actually lasts about as long as my bf's cheapo shampoo-water. And his buzzcut doesn't exactly require a lot!

My love for this shampoo is unreal. I haven't tried the updated formula yet, BUT the original one is amazing! I love the scent, it reminds me of an old moisturizer my mother used to use in the 90's (MoistureMax by Luster). So that immediately got this product nostalgia points. It is very effective when used in conjunction with the All Soft conditioner. In cosmetology school, we used the entire Redken line on clients, and out of all of the regimens this is my favorite. I wouldn't recommend it for people with fine hair, because it is very heavy and may wear the hair down. If you have thick, relaxed, dry hair give it a try. I'm sure you'll love it.

I bought this to help with my dry hair. It could be that I was dissatisfied because it was not appropriate for my hair type. My hair is fine and this left it feeling limp and weighed down. It also did not seem to improve the dryness. It did not perform any better that the much lower priced L'oreal shampoos (Redken is owned by L'oreal).
It did seem to work for my husband's thicker hair. He said it seemd more manageable but we bought L'oreal Vive shampoo for him and he had the same results for a lot less money.

I used to work at a salon that carried this, & lots of people used to rave about how great it was. One day this shampoo & conditioner were on sale, so I bought them. This isn't a bad shampoo/conditioner, but it really didn't do anything special for me. Ever since then, I've never understood the hype. This is just alright in my opinion. I've honestly used drugstore shampoos & conditioners that I like way better than this. Tressemme & Nexxus are far superior to this, & a lot cheaper. My hair wasn't any softer or less frizzy using these, it didn't really do much of anything to be honest. I actually still have my original bottle of this laying around somewhere, (I never use it). I wouldn't buy these again.

I started using this shampoo about 6 months ago when i got it in a huge sale in Ulta. At first I was impressed and it did good with my wavy, damaged hair, but lately it seems like it hasn't done anything but make it frizzy. I switched shampoos for awhile and cleaned my hair with vinegar and baking soda and again, nothing. I began searching for something else and found Organix.
I am not sure what happened but I will not be repurchasing this again, especially after I found something much better at a lower cost.

I *LOVED* the old Redken All Soft shampoo and conditioner. It was a perfect go-to mid range affordable duo for my hair. The results was soft silky great hair. Unfortunately I really don't care for the products or the results after they changed the formula. The results are not the same at all, and its really disappointing! I wish redken would bring back the old products, they were so much better. I've since changed to kerastase which is great, but not really affordable over the long term!

I will give Redken all soft shampoo 5 lippies just because it is the only shampoo that I have used that is not an anti-dandruff shampoo that cleanses my scalp so well. I usually use a shampoo that hydrates, or repairs depending on how damaged or how healthy my hair is, and I have to use an anti-dandruff shampoo at least once a week or every other week depending how many times I wash my hair during the week. I have normal to thick hair to my elbows very wavy and curly, with lots of body. My hair always need moisture, i always finish with serum and leave-in cream. Since I use a lot of product, I need a shampoo that will cleanse really well-not only my hair but my scalp. This is the first Redken product I've tried, its not the best moisturizing shampoo but it definitively is the best shampoo I've used that replaces my anti-dandruff shampoo-my scalp is very clean, but its not "squeaky" clean to the point of it drying my hair. I predominately have virgin hair but my last inch of hair is chemically treated and I feel like the shampoo is somewhat more drying on my ends, it makes up for it though because I use conditioner. If my hair chemically treated, I don't think I'd use this shampoo because it would dry my hair out, but it does wonders on my natural hair and scalp. I've also noticed a significant decrease in hair loss.
THE BAD NEWS: I HAVE DARK HAIR. I'M A BRUNETTE WITH HITS OF RED, BLONDE, AND CHESTNUT TONES IN MY HAIR, BUT INDEED, IT'S IN DARK TONES. SINCE USING THIS SHAMPOO, MY HAIR HAS GOTTEN VERY DARK TO THE POINT THAT IN PICTURES MY HAIR LOOKS LIKE A SOFT BLACK. EVEN MY FAMILY THOUGHT I HAD DIED MY HAIR DARK, SO I KNOW NOW ITS DEFINITIVELY THE SHAMPOO. I READ ON A REVIEW OF SOMEONE WHO HAD SIMILAR RESULTS BUT SHE NOTICED RIGHT AWAY BECAUSE SHE WAS A BLONDE. ITS THE ARGAN OIL THATS IN IT THAT HAS TENDENCY TO DARKEN HAIR. I JUST PURCHASED THE OLD FORMULATION, I DO VERY GOOD WITH OILS IN MY HAIR SO IF I LIKE IT, I'LL GO ON EBAY AND PURCHASE A BIG BOTLE TO STOCK UP SINCE THEY STOPED MAKING THE OLD FORMULATION. I ALSO PURCHASED ROOT AWAKENING BY JOHN FREIDA, SO IM GONNA REVIEW THOSE PRODUCTS LATER. NOTE THAT 3 SHAMPOOS HAVE SALICYLIC ACID, SO I THINK THATS THE INGREDIENT THAT MAKES IT SO GOOD FOR MY DANDRUFF AND BUILDUP I GET ON MY SCALP. SALICYLIC ACID DISSOLVES ALL THE OILS AND GUNK OFF SCALP. I USE THIS SHAMPOO ONCE OR TWICE A WEEK I USUALLY USE A SULFATE FREE SHAMPOO. I WILL PROBABLY NOT PURCHASE THIS SHAMPOO AGAIN BECAUSE IT DARKENS MY NATURAL HAIR AND I DONT WANT TO COLOR MY HAIR, BUT IF I CANT FIND ANYTHING THAT WILL REPLACE IT THEN I WILL ONLY USE ONCE A WEEK. AND IT DOESNT LEAVE MY HAR "ALL SOFT" LIKE IT CLAIMS, AT LEAST NO MORE THAN ANY OTHER REGULAR SHAMPOO-, BUT ITS DEFINITIVELY GREAT AT CLEANING. FOR REFFERENCE IVE USE: NEXXUS, TIGI BED HEAD COLOR GODESS, PUREOLOGY, BIOLOGE, ECT-LOTS OF DRUGSTORE STUFF TOO
