Comments about Redken Forceful 23:

This is a good hairspray but I am not a fan of the new fragrance. I try but just can't get past it I won't buy again for that reason only . If the smell doesn't bother you it's a good product.

              Have used this product for years. After use my hair is soft, shinny and holds the style. It brushes out easily and ready again for styling. Have used this same product when coloring my hair and now as natural grey. Love it!

                  • Q:

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

                      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?

                      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

                  • Q:

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