      Comments about Redken Genius Wash for Medium Hair:

      This works magic for my natural curly hair. It keeps it moistured and doesn't make my hair heavy or leave a film. Product lasts a while too I put a little Moroccan oil on my hair while damp and use "Triple Sec" volumizing spray.

        Comments about Redken Genius Wash for Medium Hair:

        My stylist recommended this to me for everyday use instead of shampoo due to the fact that I wash my hair daily and my hair is colored treated. I love the way it smells in the volume that it gives my hair. My hair is naturally greasy and this did nothing but make it worse. Your hair always feels wet and greasy when using this product. Not worth the money.

        While it did add shine to my hair I felt that was from the oily feel left in it. It is a gentle cleanser and did make my hair feel soft the rest of the day.

        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.

                  • Great for alternating between shampoos

                  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 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?

                        A:

                        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.

                        A:

                        Redken Genius Wash cleanses, conditions and moisturizes in one application- No need to rinse and repeat. Apply 10 pumps, depending on hair length and thickness. Distribute Genius Wash evenly through damp hair and gently massage. Leave on 2-5 minutes for best results, then rinse thoroughly.
