      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.

            Purchased this to use after getting my hair colored. It has such an overwhelming scent that my students complained that I put on to much perfume.

              My hair is very dry from age and foils so I use this once a week instead of regular shampoo and then my hair is clean but not squeaky clean which is so drying. I regular shampoo every other day or so with ITs a Ten and condition with the Its a Ten mask. I used to use WEN but stopped after reading the bad press online and news.

                      Do you have to rinse and repeat, or is one application enough?

                        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.
