      Comments about Redken Extreme Strength Builder Plus:

      This stuff smells like cake batter and it has helped my hair which was completely fried from a coloring mishap at the salon. I use this 2-3 times a week depending on how my hair is feeling and especially after coloring. You don't want to use it too often or it will have a drying effect but 1-2 a week is good. On the other days I condition I use Its a 10 mask and these two products have absolutely transformed my damaged hair.

            This product is great works wonders, just don't use it more than once a week because too much protein for your hair can actually dry out your hair. Keeping that in mind, I've bleached my hair and dyed it teal a few times before I started using this product my ends were super dry. After the first use, my hair felt super soft and amazing.

                Comments about Redken Extreme Strength Builder Plus:

                Please read! I am a natural blonde but spent years clogging my hair with black and red hair dye. I have always been abusive to my hair and even spent three years getting back to back perms. I got away with this because my skin overproduces oil which significantly helps repair my damage. I also happen to be a licensed cosmetologist which gives me access to professional products. That being said, listen to me. I recently decided to go back to a shade of blonde. After four hours, two sessions of 40vol bleach, and a toner, my hair was a pile of golden mush. When dry, imagine a tumble weed on my head. After about a week of looking around I decided to try Redken's Extreme products. Best decision I've ever made.
                Quick science lesson. When hair is dry and starts to frizz, it lacks moisture. The outer layer of the hair dries out and opens. Easily fixed with moisturizing conditioner. When hair becomes mushy and stretches down to your knees if you pull it (when wet) it lacks protein. Moisture will do nothing if you lack protein. It's like soaking in cocoa butter to treat your vitamin deficiency. Not gonna happen. This product, and lots of Redken's products, are protein fortified. I started with the extra strength mask to blast protein into my hair. I started on day one by using a small amount of extreme shampoo. Then I followed the directions and towel dried my hair. I applied a good amount of the mask to my ends and worked the product up avoiding my scalp, let sit and rinsed out with cold water. Pro Tip: Towel drying your hair before any conditioner helps to maximize the benefits. Add an oil for a deep conditioning treatment. On day two I rinsed my hair with warm water and reapplied the mask. I did this everyday for about a week. On day 7/8 I shampooed, and switched to extreme conditioner. After two weeks I have at least 25% of the damage repaired. Be careful though, if you overuse this product you will get buildup that can be hard to get out. Great buy and hope this helps!

                      A:

                      We recommend that the hair be partially dried because we want the hair to absorb the Redken Extreme Strength Builder Plus. When your hair is wet, the strands are already full of water and they can't absorb as much product. At the very least, please use your hands to wring out any excess water before applying the Extreme Strength Builder Plus. Yes, you can certainly apply this mask while you are in the shower and rinse it out at the very end of your routine.

                      Redken recommends that you use Strength Builder Plus after you shampoo. Yes, you can apply Extreme Conditioner after you rinse out the Strength Builder Plus. This will give you extra conditioning. I hope that helps clear it up!

                      A:

                      Extreme Strength Builder is a deep conditioner that strengthens the hair from the inside out. Apply after shampooing on towel-dried hair…leave on for 5-15 minutes and then rinse thoroughly. We recommend using once or twice a week, but if your hair is very distressed, you can use it more often as needed. The days you do not use Strength Builder Plus, you should use Extreme Conditioner.

                      A:

                      Redken products have been tested to have at least a 3-year shelf life if unopened and stored at normal room temperature, during which they will retain their integrity and perform as expected. If your product looks and smells the way it normally does, it is good to use. Certain products may have an expiration date printed on the product. Once opened, we recommend using within 12 months. The number of uses will depend on how often the product is used and how much is used each time.

                      You can certainly use Extreme Strength Builder Plus prior to color treating hair. Please ensure that the product is fully removed from hair prior to application of color. It is also a great post-color treatment to repair, soften, and strengthen processed or fragile hair.
