    Comments about Redken Travel Size Genius Wash for Medium Hair:

    I go to gym M-F in the building where I work. Thus I have to take all my products with me and fully shower and get ready for the office while at the gym. I usually wash my hair every other day because it's not too dirty on day 2 (dirtier on cardio days not dirty on strength training days). However on the days I don't wash my hair there is a bit of product buildup and a bit of oil produces. Still if I wash it every day it strips my hair and it gets dry. This product is perfect for the days I don't wash with shampoo. It doesn't lather up but rather gently cleanses hair of any buildup and residue. It smells awesome and Is not harsh at all. I tried it for first time today and it will be my new every other day product. It allows me to get out old product and style my hair better but still not lather up every day. My hair also was shiny when done. It's perfect for my hair needs so thought I would share in case others may have similar needs. :)

      I color my hair often because it grows so quickly. I try to wash my hair every 4-5 days because my hair has a tendency to be dry anyway. This product works well.

        Comments about Redken Travel Size Genius Wash for Medium Hair:

        I have thin, oily hair and now I also have lots of grays! So I have been coloring my hair for a few years, just now starting to rock some vivids. I had previously been using Redken Body Full but then my hairdresser suggested Magnetics. Love it, works great. BUT because of how greasy my hair gets, I have to wash it daily. So all that money on color just feels wasted. The first time I went a little vivid, my color was so faded after only a week!! She then suggested a cleansing conditioner - I found this. THIS is awesome! I still have to wash my hair frequently when I work (I can go a day or two greasy when I am off and just busy around the house) so I alternate using this with Magnetics and have extended my color! First wash after color with Magnetics, lots of rinse-out, my hands turn purple! Second wash with Genius wash, no color on my hands, in the rinse, nothing. Next wash with Magnetics, purple. LOL!
        I will note, I can't use this product twice in a row - it seems to leave a residue that my thin hair can handle after one wash but not two, no matter how well I rinse. But using it to alternate has made me so much happier with my color longevity!! :)

          I went to the store looking for a product that would help my post partum hair. It felt dry and unhealthy even using my normal redken products, so I was recommended this one from one of the sales consultants. I have normal to oily thick hair.
          I used it the first time a few days ago and I loved the smell and my hair felt so much softer. Then I used it again a few days later, my hair turned out not as soft and it looked greasy underneath toward the roots. It felt like I hadn't washed my hair in weeks even though it was just washed. I do not recommend this product

            I buy the travel sizes mostly to try out new products, plus I travel frequently for work. Loved this product, I will be buying the larger size for home. It has a stronger smell, but I liked it.

            Comments about Redken Travel Size Genius Wash for Medium Hair:

            First off, I'd like to address another review. Yes, it will "feel" like you're washing your hair with cream rinse because it doesn't suds up. It isn't supposed to suds up! It is basically using conditioner to wash your hair, hence the co-wash", co for conditioner. Once you've used it several times, you will not miss the suds, especially when you see less of your dye job going down the shower drain. I use 7 pumps or so, spread into the top of my hair, then flip my head over, use 7 pumps spread over underside of hair, then really get into scalp with my finger tips, then rub my hair between my hands to work it through all of hair, then use wide tooth comb through hair, then pile hair on top of head while I take a shower, then rinse. Sometimes I use Redken Diamond Oil Deep Facets mask after, like when I shave my legs or just to get a DEEP condition in. That stuff is the bomb! Leave that on 5-30min, your hair will shine like crazy after 30min and be smooth, works with wavy hair too. Give the co-wash time, use it for a while, let your hair and scalp get used to it. Good luck. I use the one for unruly hair.

                I did not like this product. It did not smell good when I used it. The first day my hair looked okay, but if felt like it had a residue. The second day my hair was so greasy looking. I had to take a shower on my lunch break.
