        Comments about Redken Forceful 23:

        I had good expectations for this. I used to use a hair spray by the same company years ago so I thought this one would be good. It did not hold until I walked out the door, and as with many hair sprays, I had to wash my hair again the next day because it just felt oily and limp.

              • Q:

                Salon says this spray is water soluble and therefore will not build up on scalp and hair and rinses out easily.
                True??
                Asked on 6/1/2016 by Judy from Michigan

                • Brand Expert

                  A:

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

              • Q:

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

                1 answer

                • Brand Expert

                  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

                Do you sell this product in a travel size. I bought it before but am having trouble finding the "23" in this size.
