great results

By Manda with the Curls

Comments about Redken Genius Wash for Coarse Hair:

I was pleasantly surprised with my results! My hair was in a rut with the weather change and this has helped clean my scalp from product build up (noticeable results with just one wash), my curls were bouncier, and my hair looked healthier over all. Like many others the smell is not my favorite but I'm able to put up with it because of the results. I have a lot of hair so I tend to go threw a lot of product in a week with 1-2 washes. I don't wash my hair everyday and I alternate between products, but I always feel the difference every time I use this product!

      Comments about Redken Genius Wash for Coarse Hair:

      I wanted to see if uncoupled find a new co wash to switch between with my Eden co-wash. My hair can be very picky because of the multiple hair types that I have( type 3C/4A,B,C). Its hard to satisfy each kink and curl, but this managed to define my hair. It also had a great tingly sensation that left my hair feeling clean without stripping it. When I deep condition afterward, my hair soaks up the moisture easily and happily. I'm very happy with the purchase, and I would buy it again.

      Comments about Redken Genius Wash for Coarse Hair:

      Tried this as a cowash and was happy with how clean my scalp felt. Plus my scalp didn't itch like it does with other brands. But the smell is very odd - like cedar wood chips that one might use to keep the moths at bay. The smell was not as bad when my hair dried. But every once in a while I'd get a whiff of it.

              Best Uses

                Comments about Redken Genius Wash for Coarse Hair:

                I've used a couple different mostly inexpensive co washes. I have very thick course dry hair and co washing was recommended to me by my co worker who is a stylist. I enjoyed my cheaper co wash purchases, but! I did feel they left too much residue in my hair. This is almost perfect! I can usually wash my hair around three times with this every other day and achieve straight full hair that almost looks as if I've had an expensive blow out! Around my third/fourth wash I use a sulfate free shampoo to "reset" my hair and get rid of any build-up. I've noticed my hair is breaking less, is more shiny and the ends are less dry. My only complaints are the smell is odd (I can't put my finger on the exact smell, but I don't really enjoy it) and even though the small size bottle is small I really feel it should have a bigger pump like the herbal essences cleansing conditioner has. Even if you have fine thinner hair you still have to use quite a bit of product and the pump on this one really doesn't cut it, BUT overall very happy with product.
