    Comments about Redken Extreme Strength Builder Plus:

    I liked this product but I did not love it for the higher price. There are more affordable deep conditioners that work better for my hair. I feel this one did not add growth or volume. It helped repair my hair but that seemed to be the only benefit. I prefer Eva Nyc deep conditioner over this product.

            One of the best deep conditioners I have ever used. I have relaxed hair, but the product leaves my hair feeling soft and reduces the shedding in my hair. If I had more money, then I would buy this deep conditioner by the bulk- its that good!

                      Redken Extreme Strength Builder Plus is designed to provide optimum results in 5-15 minutes, then rinsed. We do not recommend leaving it on your hair overnight.

                      You can use Redken Extreme Strength Builder Plus everyday if your hair needs it.

                      Redken Extreme Strength Builder Plus is designed to be washed out after 5-15 minutes. This will provide optimum results. Hair is 96% stronger after 3 applications! Extreme Strength Builder Plus will strengthen and conditions your hair.

                      If you are looking for a leave in treatment, you can add Redken Extreme Anti-Snap to your haircare routine. It is a a leave in treatment which fortifies and smoothes the cuticle to reduce breakage and split ends.

                      A:

                      We recommend that the hair be partially dried because we want the hair to absorb the Redken Extreme Strength Builder Plus. When your hair is wet, the strands are already full of water and they can't absorb as much product. At the very least, please use your hands to wring out any excess water before applying the Extreme Strength Builder Plus. Yes, you can certainly apply this mask while you are in the shower and rinse it out at the very end of your routine.

                      Redken recommends that you use Strength Builder Plus after you shampoo. Yes, you can apply Extreme Conditioner after you rinse out the Strength Builder Plus. This will give you extra conditioning. I hope that helps clear it up!

                      A:

                      Extreme Strength Builder is a deep conditioner that strengthens the hair from the inside out. Apply after shampooing on towel-dried hair…leave on for 5-15 minutes and then rinse thoroughly. We recommend using once or twice a week, but if your hair is very distressed, you can use it more often as needed. The days you do not use Strength Builder Plus, you should use Extreme Conditioner.

                      A:

                      Redken products have been tested to have at least a 3-year shelf life if unopened and stored at normal room temperature, during which they will retain their integrity and perform as expected. If your product looks and smells the way it normally does, it is good to use. Certain products may have an expiration date printed on the product. Once opened, we recommend using within 12 months. The number of uses will depend on how often the product is used and how much is used each time.
