                    I do not use this product every day I workout a lot and ride my bicycle in very humid conditions with a helmet, but when I am going out for lunch or dinner or just shopping I use it and it really holds up.

                      I find this spray so versatile. It can hold a style but also add volume. My hair is dark and thin and this holds while still keeping it looking soft. I like to buy it during the buy two get one offers.

                          Forceful 23 is a finishing spray meant to be used after your styling is complete. Please take a look at Redken Hot Sets 22.

                          Thermal Setting Mist - Heat Protectant Spray. The maximum-control spray helps create heat styles with true staying power. Spray the setting mist on damp or dry hair to achieve a crisp hold when using blow dryers, curling irons or straighteners and get heat protection up to 450 degrees.

                      • Q:

                        I have stick straight hair. I'm performing as Clara in The Nutcracker, so it has to be half up half down and curled. My hair does not hold a curl for as long as 20 minutes. My Mom and I were searching for this Redken 23 hairspray. Will that help hold the curls? And for how long?

                      • Q:

                        Salon says this spray is water soluble and therefore will not build up on scalp and hair and rinses out easily.
                        True??

                          Yes, your stylist is correct. Redken Forceful 23 is water soluble and rinses clean away without leaving a residue.

                        What's the difference between the Forceful 23 and the Control Addict 28?
                        Asked on 5/15/2016 by Tavia from Oklahoma City

                          A:

                          That is a great question! The biggest difference is that Control Addict 28 has a stronger hold than Forceful 23.
                          Each Redken styling product has a number that represents the amount of control it provides. The higher the number, the greater the control.
                          There are three levels of control:
                          · MILD CONTROL 01-05
                          · MEDIUM CONTROL 06-15
                          · MAXIMUM CONTROL 16-32
