          Comments about Redken Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo:

          So, I'm a product junkie, but when it comes down to it I keep my hair very simple. I let it air dry almost every time and put leave in conditioner and call it a day.
          I moved to my current city a year and a half ago, and live on the beach. The humidity has not been friendly on my hair. I bike to class, against the elements and I find that within 5-6 hours of showering my hair is already a greaseball. I also live somewhere with super hard water. Anything you leave in the shower comes out with hard water stains after a single shower. I started noticing my hair felt flatter, greasier, and had lost it's natural texture. It became this frizzy straight mess. For the record, I have naturally wavy hair. I thought maybe the hard water was messing with my hair. I used this shampoo Sunday, and it is now Tuesday. My hair is not oily IN the slightest. My hair is very volumized and my natural hair texture is finally back. My hair looks thicker and has so much volume. My head full of waves is back. I plan on using this shampoo 1-2 times a week (maybe one). I focused it on my scalp and the top of my head. Love this product, but I would definitely label this product as harsh. Even the palm of my hands felt dried out and almost gritty after lathering this into my hair.

            I has my hair dyed and the highlights turned purple instead of blonde. It was pretty bad. I decided to buy a clarifying shampoo to see if this helped and wow it sure did! My highlights went back to blonde.

                    This product works wonders to keep the hard water from turning my blonde hair too rusty or bronze looking. I use it once a week and that works perfect for me.

                      Comments about Redken Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo:

                      I washed my ultra long, ultra fine, ultra thick hair with this shampoo and was a life-affirming experience. There is a backstory here, so I should digress: Due a plumbing disaster at my apartment that took almost 3 weeks to resolve, I had not washed my hair in 20.5 days and it was DIRTY. (I wear a scrub cap at work and could hide under it, thank God!) I have used clarifying shampoos in the past and they always stripped the hair shaft of moisture, and the hard water in my current location complicates this further. (Let me say I have "normal" hair in that it isn't oily or dry in spite of the length; and it is not chemically treated.) However, weeks of buildup and months of hard water had made my scalp filthy and the rest of my waist-length hair dulled, dried-out, and impossibly tangle-prone. So this shampoo was up against hard odds and it prevailed. The protein complex in it must be where the magic is because after I used it my hair was as clean as it gets yet was also thicker, shinier, and almost tangle-free. The shampoo lathered like a charm; I left it in my hair about 5 minutes... and no repeat was required. I used the Redken Diamond Shine Conditioner afterwards and I was a changed person when, post shower, I combed it out and voila: I had my childhood hair back--it was silky, shiny, and CLEAN! The next day, a total stranger came up to me and complemented me on my hair. I could have cried. If things like this don't make you happy, you have problems.
                      I have used it 3 times since the first (alternating with the Redken Diamond Shine shampoo which is also splendid) and it seems to make my hair healthier with each wash. I am so grateful I found this product. I have recommended it to my friends and to every stranger who has come up to me on the street and exclaimed "Oh my, you have the most beautiful head of hair!" A+

                              Redken Scalp Relief Shampoo is our preferred product for dry, itchy scalp and dandruff. Redken Scalp Relief is different from Hair Cleansing Cream. Hair Cleansing Cream is a clarifying shampoo that purifies, removes build-up, and adds shine. Both products are available at Ulta and Ulta.com

Redken Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo is a clarifying shampoo that cleanses the surface of the hair. It clarifies and works to remove copper, iron, hard water minerals and styling product build-up on all hair types.

                              Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo is meant to be used to clarify the hair. Although gently to use daily if needed, it may not be necessary for daily use. Please consult with your Redken stylist for a personalized hair care regimen to suit your specific needs

                              Redken Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo should be used as needed, depending on the needs of your hair.
                              Most people will use Redken Hair Cleansing Cream every other time they shampoo their hair.
                              If you have hard water / lots of minerals in your tap water, you might choose to use this shampoo every time you wash. If you are using this to remove chlorine after swimming, I would use it after every swim. You could use it once a week, or everyday depending on the needs of your hair.
