Best I've Ever Used!

By Lyn N

from OK

my hair is pretty damage from having to straighten it everyday, because it's wavy/frizzy. & it never seem healthy no matter what I tried!! after reading the reviews, I thought I'd give it a go. let's just say, I'm never switching. my hair is healthier than ever! just keep in mind that you HAVE to use their conditioner, that's the key. you wouldn't regret it.

Amazing Shampoo!

By AC

from Georgia

Pros

    Cons

      Best Uses

        My hair isn't terribly damaged, but I do have some heat damage and it's always been frizzy and difficult to deal with. I had been using Redken's All Soft before and I really liked it, but Extreme is even better. My hair is a lot more manageable and definitely a million times softer. For the best results, I would also recommend the conditioner and hair mask. When combined, you'll feel like you have a new head of hair! Love this shampoo, if you're considering buying it you definitely should!

        I have very damaged and dry hair from 18 years of hair dye and using heating tools. My hair was breaking and falling out in large quantities so I decided to try this product.

        After almost two weeks of using this product with the shampoo and the mask, my hair has significantly improved. I am finding less hair is breaking and falling out.

        I highly recommend this product if you are at wits end with your hair. It works AND it is affordable.

        The only con I found is that it is stripping the color out of my hair. It says color safe but not for me apparently. I have not used hair product with sulfates in years.

        I weighed this con with the pros and decided it was worth it. After I have used this product for a few weeks, I will just get my hair dyed again and mix this product in with my regular rotation of color safe shampoos.

        Amazing!!

        By Cadie - Dog Trainer and Coffee Addict

        from Thornton, Colorado

        Best Uses

          Oh man. I have damaged hair, and a ton of breakage. I decided one day to look on the back of my L'Oreal Sulfate free shampoo and conditioner to find out that it is, in fact, full of sulfates. I color my hair a very light color (Normal hair color is a dirty blonde, I color a Light, cool blonde) and I flat iron every couple of days (2-3) so there's a little bit of damage going on. I ditched the L'Oreal, got a trim, and went on the hunt for something else that would meet, and hopefully exceed my expectations. And, boy, did I find it.

          Let me just start out by saying the associates at my local Ulta (Thornton Colorado) were great. I came up to the counter, asking for help, and they did not push me in one direction. I told them what I wanted (Nothing fully loaded with Keratin because last time I tried that, it made my hair worse. I was looking for a protectant, repair, and something that made my hair look and feel wonderful) and they have me 4 different options and told me about the current deals they were having. I picked this product because of the Redken Buy 2 get 1 free deal. I picked up Shampoo, Conditioner, and Anti-snap leave in treatment, all Redken Extreme. I kept my receipt in case this was not what I was looking for.

          I brought it home and smelled the products. First of all they smelled great. It smells...fancy. Not like a fruit or something ridiculously sweet. It's a light fragrance that is pleasant.

          After just one wash my hair was softer, fuller, shiny, strong and healthy, and every was after it gets better and better. I feel like these products are really helping my hair and not coating it in wax or sulfates. I used the anti snap in the exact way the bottle described, and only wash my hair every 2-3 days. (Ladies, dry shampoo is your friend, use it.)

          I would recommend this to anyone needing help from breakage and damage, and I look forward to the Liter sales... I will be stocking up on these three products!!

          How do I love thee let me count the ways

          Pros

            Cons

              Best Uses

                Love, love, LOVE this stuff! This is probably the best shampoo/conditioner I've ever used. Ever. And that is saying something coming from me. I have used tons of shampoo and conditioner brands. This is making my hair healthier. It is so soft and looks a lot better. I can't use it all the time, probably because of the protein, it tends to tangle my hair if I use it too often. I alternate between this and Biosilk Cool Blonde Shampoo (because it is sulfate and paraben free) and Color Treated conditioner. The only downfall of Redken Extreme is that it contains sulfates and sodium chloride. Other than that I just love this stuff.

                      What a great product!

                      By Dacouper

                      from Dover, PA

                      Pros

                        Cons

                          Best Uses

                            I tried Redken products about 7 years ago and it made my head itch/burn. However, i should not that I just had my second son and I am not sure if hormones played a roll or what but i stopped using the product and never tried it again UNTIL i did some research and came across Redken Extreme products.
                            I go from low lights to highlights to bleach blonde and back to low lights in matter of months. Yes, I enjoy trying out new things with my hair. However, i put my hair through a lot of stress and i tried many conditioners, leave in treatments, deep hair treatments and absolutely nothing worked. After i get out of the shower I couldn't even run my fingers through my hair that's how dry and tangled it was. Try brushing that...Current length of my hair right now is down to my shoulders. Ulta had the sale going on and i bought the shampoo and conditioner and i was very eager to try the product out. My plan was to try it out for few washes and watch out for itchiness/burning and if the product did what it claimed. And we all know how many products claim to give you the results you are looking for but in the end, it simply does nothing for you hair. Ok, moving on! So, i tried the shampoo and conditioner next day in the shower and let me tell you, it was heaven. I immediately felt the results when that conditioner touched my hair and i was able to run my fingers through my hair while still in the shower. I was ecstatic. Styling my hair was piece of cake and brushing was no longer painful. I've been using the combo for about 2 weeks now and the dry patch on the back of my head is so much smoother and almost healed. I did not tell anyone i tried a new hair product because i wanted someone else to notice it and make a remark and my co-workers did. They all agreed that my hair looked smoother, more bouncy ( i blow dry with big round brush) healthier and shinier. If you have chemically treated or simply stressed hair, try this product. You will be happy.

                            from Lemongrass72

                            The extreme shampoo is very versatile. I have straight slightly oily hair that I heat style. It always leaves my hair soft, shiny and healthy but without oil problems. My daughter has wavy chlorine damaged hair and she uses this shampoo in rotation with a clarifying shampoo and it has done wonders in repairing her hair. The price usually runs 30.00 for the large bottle. When I find it on sale I stock up!

                                  Would this be recommended over the Color Extend Magnetics for fragile, bleached hair? And is this a sulfate-free shampoo?

                                    Redken Extreme Shampoo with Fortifying Complex is ideal to repair fragile, distressed hair. When used as part of a regimen, hair is 96% stronger after three single treatments of Strength Builder Plus fortifying mask (Item #: 2229558)!

                                    It is not sulfate-free.
