                      • 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?
                        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

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