                I don't think this is a terrible product but It's just not for me. I have used better. It doesn't make my hair look shiny, it just leaves it pretty dull. I have to use a few other products to control the frizz and shine it up.

                        I have fine hair. I used to use the Sheer Straight 06 product followed by the Iron Silk 07. The results were fabulous. What do you recommend I replace these two discontinued items with for just as great results?

                          For an alternate for Sheer Straight 06 you may want to try Velvet Gelatin 07. It is a cushioning blow-dry gel that provides a smooth, frizz free finish. It is a light airy gel that adds volume, shine and texture.

                          For an alternate for Iron Silk 07 you may want to try Iron Shape 11. It protects hair from heat styling, tames frizz and adds shine.

                          A:

                          Redken Align 12 is the same product, it has just been repackaged. We do recommend that you apply Align 12 before you blow dry as it provides heat protection and helps to smooth and straighten your hair. Apply to damp hair and blow dry for sleek, natural looking straight results.

                          If you are looking specifically for a product to apply dry hair, please consider Outshine 01. This hair softening styling treatment fights frizz, adds shine & smoothes for a sleek hair look.

                        Do you have to put it on damp hair or will it work on dry hair before straightening?

                          A:

                          For best results, we recommend that you apply Align 12 to damp hair before you blow dry. This way Align 12 is protecting your hair from the dryer, too. When your hair is dry, you can go ahead and flat iron... the Align 12 is still in your hair, protecting from the heat and providing shine and a amooth frizz-free result.

                          None the less, you can apply to dry hair. Please be sure that the product absorbs and completely dries into your hair before flat ironing. We only recommend using a flat iron on dry hair.

                          A:

                          Redken Align 12 is great when you need a smooth result when styling medium to coarse hair. If hair is finer, we recommend Satinwear 02 (Item #: 2272826) which has heat protection, or Velvet Gelatine 07 (Item #: 2272816).

                          HOT TIP: Try layering Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer (Item #: 2272256) before styling. You will cut blow dry time, protect from heat up to 450 degrees, help reduce breakage and provide 24-hour lasting volume without weighing hair down!
