    great results

    By Manda with the Curls

    from Fresno, CA

    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!

        • Kinky/Curly Hair

        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.

        Good but smells like cedar chips

        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.
