      Comments about Redken Genius Wash for Unruly Hair:

      Only used it once, the antiseptic smell was too much for me. I don't like heavily perfumed products but I also don't want to smell like a hospital room.

      smells awful

      By Colleen

      from Chicago, IL

      Comments about Redken Genius Wash for Unruly Hair:

      It definitely takes well to my hair when I put it in but the smell is so bad that I have to immediately shampoo it out, which defeats the purpose.

        Comments about Redken Genius Wash for Unruly Hair:

        I really try to avoid conditioners that cause a lot of build up over time with my thick hair, this is great, no build up and been using it for months. Hair is so much easier to style and manage now, shiny and soft.

          It's a rich, gentle, cleansing, hydrating formula that would be excellent if it didn't smell like cedar wood horse stalls in an oak barn.

            I like this product - you have to make sure that you rinse out thoroughly though. Otherwise hair seems oily/greasy after you dry it.

                My hair is shiny and smooth!

                It is also shoulder length. It's been processed to blonde once. It's naturally wavy, some curls.

                This cleansing conditioner has given balance to my hair. It's smooth and manageable. I can wash and go. I'm not frizzy and greasy anymore!! It's like it's not my hair. I wish I hadn't waited so long to try it!

                It does not lather. You apply and let it sit for 5 minutes, then rinse.

                Highly recommend. A lot of people are complaining about the smell. I like it. I've been using it for almost two weeks.

                      Wash, rinse with cool water seems to work best. My hair has never been so soft.
