      My hair is fine and tends to go flat with many styling products. This one is lightweight and provides frizz control. I have used it for years and still love it.

        Comments about Redken Align 12:

        Oh my gosh, I love this so much! I used to use this in the old pump bottle. A stylist suggested it to me and said it would all me to straighten my hair (my hair is pretty wavy, but not a pretty wave- the kind that makes no sense and looks awful so I HAVE to straighten my hair). Anyway, she said this would allow me to straighten my hair and it actually hold, even in humidity. Well, I've used stuff in the past that was supposed to do this and they did an okay job, or sometimes nothing. This changed everything! I use this in conjunction with a serum by Paul Mitchell and my hair looks good even the next day after sleeping on it. I cannot stress enough that this NEVER happens to me. Finally, my pump bottle ran out, and I decided to give another product a try that seemed to be VERY similar. It was cheaper and I thought if I could find a dupe that would be amazing. Well, it wasn't. So, I went on the hunt and was SO apprehensive when I couldn't find my Align 12, and then realized they'd changed the packaging. I bought it somewhat reluctantly because I wondered if they'd changed the product as well. But, after using it for a couple weeks now, I can say with certainty it's the SAME thing and my hair is back to loving me again! Wow! All I do is flat iron my hair and I get SO many compliments on my hair now and it's all because of the difference this stuff makes in it. This is the ONLY thing that I changed in my routine when I'd run out and tried something cheaper. I will NEVER go back again. In fact, part of me wants to buy a stockpile of it so I never run out and in case it ever gets discontinued. I hope they keep it forever, unchanged! It's perfection!

              More than a dime size can make even my super dry, coarse hair look greasy. I use just a tiny bit on my shoulder length damp hair and it really helps straighten my wavy hair.

                  Smells great. Really sleeks my hair out. I wish it fought humidity better, since I live in the South. But it's better than most all other products I've tried. Only takes a little. Lasts me a loooong time. Will continue to buy this product.

                              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.

                              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.

                              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!
