                        This product was also recommended by the associate. I told her that I was allergic to perfumes and that
                        it was even hard to come in the store....because of all the perfumes right at the front door! I wanted to get a flexible spray with little to no smell. She was nice enough to spray
                        a sample of a few sprays for my reaction. This one had less smell than others however once sprayed on
                        my hair the smell kept increasing during the day. I could smell the spray all day and the smell is even is on my pillow. Perfumes eventually do dissipate after a while however this got worse!
                        was not flexible at all. It was very stiff feeling.

                        • 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.

                        • 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
