      Comments about Redken Extreme Strength Builder Plus:

      I have used this product about 3-4 times and it has made my hair feel great! My hair felt soft and nourished after just the first use. With the use of the anti-snap I have noticed a lot less breakage in my sink which makes me very happy. I have tried a lot of strengthening products since my hair breaks so easily and it makes it almost impossible for it to grow and this one seems to be making a difference!

        This product has always been a go-to for me. Using once or twice a week is all it takes to help restore damaged hair. I have fine, straight hair that has been damaged by years of highlighting and heat styling, but this deep conditioner is no match for any other. The smell is also fantastic!

                  Comments about Redken Extreme Strength Builder Plus:

                  I am a natural brunette trying to be a blonde; my hair is also short so it requires the use of styling tools (hair dryer and flat iron) pretty much every single day... not the healthiest combo. I recently found small patches of hair where the ends (about 2-3 inches up) were extremely dry and frizzy. Like straw but maybe worse. I've used this product twice so far and my hair is gradually being repaired from the root down. Right now, only the very tips are still dry and I'm confident it will be repaired after my next use. I really think this product has saved me from having to cut a substantial amount of hair off and going back to a less damaging color.

                      I used it on a Friday night, and oh my goodness my hair felt so amazing afterwards that I couldn't help myself--I used it on Saturday and Sunday too. I know that was too frequent, but it was like my hair came back to life each time I used it. It's now one week from when I purchased it (five days since I last used it) and my hair still has so much better shine, texture, and overall health. I've done everything from red to platinum, and my hair took a huge hit after a bleach mishap. Now, I feel like my hair can finally make a healthy come back!!!

                            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.

                            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.
