Pros

  • Cleans Thoroughly
  • Gentle

Cons

  • Smells a bit weird almost manly - like a musk

Best Uses

  • Thicker Hair

Comments about Redken Genius Wash for Coarse Hair:

I like that I don't have to use a lot to clean my hair. My scalp definitely feels cleaner. My only real con thus far after 2 washes is the scent is a bit much; it's nice but it lingers for days.

    Comments about Redken Genius Wash for Coarse Hair:

    i bought this after my stylist used it in the salon - it was love at first use! Since that first bottle, I tried 4 other products (really) and just had to go back to this one. My hair is coarse and wavy and definitely has a mind of its own. I absolutely love this and doubt I'll buy anything else ever again.

        Comments about Redken Genius Wash for Coarse Hair:

        This is a great smelling cleansing cream that I alternate with my regular shampoo. I bleach my hair, so it's nice to use this to treat it gently while still getting it clean. You have to use a lot of product to work thoroughly through hair. I like everything about it other than my hair feels dryer after I use this.

            I was skeptical at first because African-American hair does not normally do well with products not made specifically for it however I am a bit mixed so I took the chance and it worked very well. It did a good job of detangling and giving moisture to my very dry curly hair.

              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.
