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.

                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.
