    Comments about Redken Rough Paste 12:

    My husband uses this for his hair. It helps keep the frizzies down but avoids looking over styled. His curly hair still looks kind of mussed up. He likes this hair stuff.

                        I have long, thin to medium, wavy/curly hair. I typically let it air dry, but occasionally diffuse it. Will this work on smoothing out my hair a bit?

                          A:

                          Redken Rough Paste 12 offers ragged texture to your hair. It provides separation, grit and hold for hair that needs a little deconstructing. It is not for smoothing.

                          For anyone looking for smoothing and a soft natural finish for air dried hair, please check out our No Blow Dry products for Fine, Medium or Coarse hair. No Blow Dry provides frizz control and enhanced movement while leaving hair with a no product feel. Please check it out at Ulta or Ulta.com

                      • Q:

                        Is this the same product just a different look from probably years ago? I had the light gray tube with black & blue lettering. If this question can be answered, it would truly mean so much because I'm almost completely out & definitely would love more. This stuff is the best ever!! Thank you!!

                        Can this be applied to hair and at a later time use a iron on hair for curl? Or does it need to be washed/removed before using an iron

                          Redken Rough Paste 12 offers long-lasting texture, separation and flexible control. It is ok to use your hot tools over this product, but we do recommend using an additional product that offers heat protection, such as Redken Iron Shape 11.

                          Redken Rough Paste 12 can be used by all hair types, including fine, thin hair. Start with a very small amount and rub into your hands first, then apply to your hair. You can always add more if you need it!
