    While the shampoo is fine, the product that is applied directly to the scalp is gummy and makes blow drying and styling difficult.

      Comments about Redken Cerafill Defy Kit For Normal To Thinning Hair:

      I like the product. It does leave a cool tingling feeling on your scalp which isn't bad but can tingle more when your hair is wet and a cold breeze blows. The only thing I don't like is the stuff you spray and leave in can make your hair hard. Easy to brush out and does add volume.

          Comments about Redken Cerafill Defy Kit For Normal To Thinning Hair:

          I am so glad I bought this line. I was noticing so much hair fall-out from stress and limp hair. My doctor said there was no issues with hormones or thyroid. I had been using All-Soft which I love but maybe it was too moisturising. So I switched and it made my hair look fuller and less oily. Plus now that I've been using it for a few months, the sebum bump (doctor agreed it was sebum) I had on my head is nearly gone. Hair seems fuller. I still have some fall-out but it's a massive improvement!! I love this product. I really trust Redken.

                  My Ulta stylist Tonya recommended this to me because my hair is thin and fine. She also gave me a great haircut to help give my hair a fuller look. Seriously, I look like a different person. Love Tonya, the haircut and these products.

                      A:

                      Both Cerafill Defy and Retaliate are designed to improve the appearance of thinning hair. Cerafill Defy is for hair that has only moderate signs of thinning. Cerafill Retaliate is designed to assist with greater hair loss and visible scalp. Please consult your Ulta stylist for personalized advice about which product would be best for your hair.

                    Does this product stop/slow down hair shedding at all?

                    • Brand Expert

                      A:

                      Redken Cerafill Defy Kit is designed to facilitate a healthy scalp, because a healthy scalp is the ideal environment for hair growth. It exfoliates the scalp, unclogs hair follicles and improves the appearance of thinning hair. It will not alleviate the natural shedding process. A normal, healthy person sheds up to 100 hairs per day.

                      If you have a sudden and unusual amount of hair loss, we suggest you consult your physician because only a medical professional is qualified to diagnose and advise you. Hair loss can be caused by many things: illness, medication, lack of sufficient vitamins, diet and stress.

                      A:

                      We recommend using a dime sized amount of shampoo and conditioner each time you wash your hair. If you feel that you need more depending on the density and length of your hair, feel free to use more.

                      The Defy Scalp Energizing Treatment should be sprayed directly onto your scalp where your hair is thinning (hair can be dry or damp). 1-2 spritzes can be used daily. Massage the product into your scalp then style your hair as usual.

                      We hope this information was helpful.

                  • Q:

                    I am debating between this product (the defy) and the one for advanced thinning. I have shed a lot of hair in the past year because of stress and change in hormones (related to birth control)- but I want to grow back some of my hair, but am unsure since I don't qualify as "advanced" thinning (my part seems a little wider but styling can hide it). Which product would you recommend?

                      A:

                      It is important to use the appropriate formula for your hair concern. If you do not have advanced thinning it would not be suggested to use that formula. You may wish to have a consultation with your Redken stylist, for a personalized regimen that will suit your specific needs.

                      If you stop using Cerafill Defy, you will no longer have the benefits this product provides: stimulating of the scalp, strengthening of hair fiber, nourishing to promote a healthy optimal scalp environment and improving the appearance of thinning hair.

                      Thank you for your inquiry concerning gluten in Redken products. Most ingredients derived from grain sources are highly refined and retain no traces of gluten proteins. For less refined ingredients from natural sources, Redken has established strict limits on the level of potentially allergenic protein. Since individuals exhibit a wide range of sensitivities to these proteins, if you have any questions or concerns you should discuss with your medical care provider.
