Comments about Redken Genius Wash for Medium Hair:

I LOVE co-washing (I have dry and color-treated hair), but this particular product had a horrendous odor. All day, I was catching whiffs of Grandpa cologne. I'm not quick to return products, but it was bad enough to be a deal-breaker for me. Luckily, I had the receipt, and the Ulta associates were wonderful about helping me exchange for the Matrix Cleansing Conditioner, which I am loving.

          The store rep recommended using this every other day instead of shampoo. It leaves my hair soft and the smell is fabulous. I wash my hair every day.

            Comments about Redken Genius Wash for Medium Hair:

            So glad the staff introduced me to this product. I have short hair so trying to use a dry shampoo between shampoos doesn't work. This is a great alternative, smells great, leaves my hair shiny and in great condition.

                  I use this product about every three days in rotation with my regular redken shampoo(all soft). I have super fine, straight hair. So far I love the combination of these two products together.

                    Comments about Redken Genius Wash for Medium Hair:

                    I received the product as a free promo. I love that it's shampoo and conditioner in one step. My hair feels clean and soft after using it but I would not have bought it because of the way it smells. It's a strange herbal smell that lingers all day. I'm on the fence as far as repurchasing or recommending it to a friend due to the smell. Maybe I'll get used to it. That's the only thing I don't like about the product. Everything else about it is great.

                          I bought this & my hair was greasy at the scalp. When you apply it to your hair do you apply to ends only & avoid on scalp or root area?

                            Redken Genius Wash for Medium Hair is a nourishing and conditioning product. Leave it on for 2-5 minutes, the longer it is on, the deeper it cleans, Leave it on the the full 5 minutes to clean away more of the oils. If Genius Wash offers more moisture than your roots area needs, you can continue to use it on the lengths and ends, avoid the root area all together. Remember, for optimal results, alternate with your favorite Redken shampoo.
