            This product fixed my curl pattern which had been compromised by excess boxed dying, and heat damage. The first use, I sprayed it onto my dry hair and let it sit in for about 10 minutes, then rinsed. It literally gave my hair it's normal spiral instead of frizzy dry waves. I'm astounded.

                Instead of using this product on 'wet hair' in the shower, try using on dry hair and let sit for about 25 minutes. I was amazed at the results. LOVE this product! I alternate weeks and do 1 week 'wet' and 1 week 'dry'. Bottle is a little difficult to use in the shower with wet hands/spray and I feel as I am not just diluting. So glad the Ulta hair stylist recommended this product for my damaged hair. Made all the difference in the world!

                This product has basically no scent ( which is the only thing I liked about it because it didn't cover up the great smell of my shampoo). did not make my hair any softer, wastes too much time in the shower for it to soak in, makes my hair knotted and hard to brush out when I get out of the shower, weighed down my fine hair, in my opinion not effective at all for what its made for.

                              Yes, Redken Extreme CAT Protein Reconstructing Treatment is the perfect product to use before you color. It helps to strengthen your hair and it helps to even out porosity in the hair, which ensures an even color result. You can use it 1-3 times a week. You can use it before you color, after you color, or make it a part of your regular weekly haircare routine.

                              As a stylist, Redken Extreme CAT Protein Reconstructing Treatment is the product I use for all of my clients who have damaged or distressed hair. Use it in place of conditioner 1-3 times a week. After shampooing, apply the Extreme CAT Protein Reconstructing Treatment and let it sit for 3-5 minutes before rinsing. You can apply conditioner after rinsing out the CAT Protein Treatment if you feel it is needed.

                              I would use the Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Leave-In Fortifier on the days that you do not use the CAT Protein Reconstructing Treatment.

                              Extreme CAT Protein Reconstructing Treatment does not require daily use. For hair that has been sensitized by chemical services, use CAT 1-3 times per week to strengthen hair. This product should be used only as directed for best results; we do not recommend mixing it with conditioner.
