        Comments about Redken Genius Wash for Unruly Hair:

        Hairstylist of 25 years here and have tried EVERY product imaginable. My search has ended. This product is amazing! I see a lot of comments about it not lathering well- it's a conditioner, so it's not supposed to lather. Detergent is what makes bubbles and detergents are bad. My advice for anyone considering being nice to their hair and using this product- be patient... You will probably be a hot mess the first couple times you use it if you're going "cold turkey" from shampoo. Just trust the process. You won't be sorry!

        Comments about Redken Genius Wash for Unruly Hair:

        This product is great for colored hair, especially if you are using a bright semi-permanent color and want the color to last. My sister in law does hair and she put in a bright color and could not believe how long it lasted in my hair and attributes it to this shampoo for why it lasted so long. I had the bright color for almost two months. I would highly recommend if you are going to use a bright color. It doesn't have a very good smell though, that's the only draw back. It smells like medicine. I believe it is due to the tea tree oil and what other combination of chemicals are in the product because usually I don't mind tea tree oil. All in all I will continue to use the product because I like the longevity of my color versus the bad smell.

            I followed the instructions on the bottle and I have colored hair. My stylist noticed how healthy my hair looked!!! It smells great and I can go for 4 days until I need to wash again. I have coarse, wavy hair and this product does absolute wonders for my hair. I'll never use any other product again!!! :)

                Comments about Redken Genius Wash for Unruly Hair:

                My hairdresser advised me to grab this after getting some beautiful color done on my hair and I LOVE IT. I don't think I want to go back to regular shampoo. My scalp is so clean and healthy and my hair which is typically thin is much more voluminous. I used to have to wash my hair every day bc of the thinness and no amount of dry shampoo would help. This was really rough on my hair! NOT ANYMORE :) now I can go three days! I have naturally very curly hair and blow dry it straight and style with heat tools- even with continuing my style regimen my color is still super vibrant and healthy. Buy this product!!!

                  Cannot emphasize how much I love this stuff. I have been looking for something that I could use daily that wouldn't strip my hair. Keeps the dryness and kinky-ness at bay.
