                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.

                      P.S. Do any of the products I just purchased provide heat protection? oh, sorry keep thinking of more question.....I was thinking of getting the Mess Around wax. Will that help after my hair is dried and loosely styled if I use it at my roots and kind of (no pun intended) mess it around with my fingers at the roots?

                      I use Aveda Prep spray on my slightly towel dried hair Aveda volumizing shampoo and conditioner. I just purchased this product along with Redken Thickening Lotion , Guts 10 and Wax Blast 10.Also the High Rise Volumizer. A you can see I am determined to increase the volume of my fine hair and make it healthier. My question is: Can I use this product after using my Style Prep? Just purchased the Redken products, so I haven't tried them yet, although I have been using Redken hairspray 23 & 28 for awhile and like them.

                        Redken Cerafill Maximize Dense Fx will increase diameter of hair strands. It boosts density and fullness for visibly thicker hair. It is often paired with Redken Cerafill Shampoo and Conditioner because they also aid in promoting a healthy scalp and thicker hair. However, you can use the Redken shampoo and conditioner of your choice.

                      Can the effectiveness of Dense Fx be enhanced or is it hampered by adding another volumizing Redken product-- Say, some protein (amino acid) treatment.

                        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.

                    • 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:

                      Is this okay to spray directly on your hair? Any bad side effects for doing that?

                        A:

                        Redken Cerafill Maximize Dense Fx Hair Diameter Thickening Treatment is meant to be used to create thickness from the root area out. If you spray on the hair, you will not get the benefit of creating volume in the root area.
