            I have auto immune issues that caused hair loss after my 2nd child. I thought Aveda's Invati was good, and it was, but this product is much better! My very fine and thinning hair is noticeably thicker with more body. Love it.

I applied it to my towel dried hair before I blow dry it and all I can say is WOW!!! It felt thicker immediately. I am very happy with this product. I also purchased the shampoo and conditioner to go with it but haven't used it yet....but this A++++++++

                  • Q:

                    Can the effectiveness of Dense Fx be enhanced or is it hampered by adding another volumizing Redken product-- Say, some protein (amino acid) treatment. I would be interested to know how Dense Fx works.(Does it coat the hair or does it fill in only damaged hairshaft or cuticle etc.)

                      A:

                      Redken Cerafill Maximize Dense Fx Hair Diameter Thickening Treatment plumps up existing hair strands to increase the diameter of each strand by 9%.
                      It's like gaining up to 9,000 more hairs after one use!* (*based on an increase in the diameter of existing hairs)

                      All Redken products can be cocktailed, meaning that you can mix and layer styling products. You can add even more volume by using multiple products such as Dense Fx and Thickening lotion. You can also address multiple needs such as Dense Fx for volume and Hot Sets 22 for heat protection and hold.

                      Redken Cerafill Maximize Dense Fx Hair Diameter Thickening treatment utilizes the following ingredients and technology to plum up your hair:
                      Filoxane plumps up existing hair to increase diameter.
                      Ceramides strengthen the hair fiber to prevent breakage.
                      SP-94 nourishes to promote a healthy scalp environment.

                  • Q:

                    I usually wash my hair once or twice weekly (recently bought redken high rise volume shampoo&conditioner) and use dry shampoo for days in between washing. I read this is supposed to be used on towel dried/damp hair daily after washing but I'm wondering can this be used on dry hair in between washes? If not, would the thickening effect last until my next wash?

                      Yes, Redken Cerafill Maximize Dense Fx Hair Diameter Thickening Treatment will last until your next shampoo. For maximum results, we actually recommend that you initially apply Dense FX to damp hair, then reapply the product to dry hair. You can reapply it daily to dry hair if you feel that your hair needs it.

                  • Q:

                    I've been using this three step product line for several months now and overall like what it does to my existing hair. Although expensive, I notice more volume and it's easy to use. My question is does it promote hair regrowth or is it strictly for strength and volume of existing hair? I am hesitating to use the stronger, Rogaine-type Redken product since I've been told that once you start that you are locked in forever but I may have to go that route.
