        My daughter's hair is natural and very thick. This product makes blow drying her hair easier. It also reduces the frizz in humid Florida and it stays straighter longer.

              I bought this because the description sounded like what I was looking for, but it didn't work well on my fine hair. I was looking for something to protect my hair from the heat and to battle the frizz to keep it straight, but this made my hair feel dry.

                      A:

                      Redken Align 12 is the same product, it has just been repackaged. We do recommend that you apply Align 12 before you blow dry as it provides heat protection and helps to smooth and straighten your hair. Apply to damp hair and blow dry for sleek, natural looking straight results.

                      If you are looking specifically for a product to apply dry hair, please consider Outshine 01. This hair softening styling treatment fights frizz, adds shine & smoothes for a sleek hair look.

                    Do you have to put it on damp hair or will it work on dry hair before straightening?

                      A:

                      For best results, we recommend that you apply Align 12 to damp hair before you blow dry. This way Align 12 is protecting your hair from the dryer, too. When your hair is dry, you can go ahead and flat iron... the Align 12 is still in your hair, protecting from the heat and providing shine and a amooth frizz-free result.

                      None the less, you can apply to dry hair. Please be sure that the product absorbs and completely dries into your hair before flat ironing. We only recommend using a flat iron on dry hair.

                    I have very fine wavy hair, I need a product to smooth but not straighten my hair. Velvet gelatin just makes it too soft, need more hold.

                      A:

                      Redken Align 12 is great when you need a smooth result when styling medium to coarse hair. If hair is finer, we recommend Satinwear 02 (Item #: 2272826) which has heat protection, or Velvet Gelatine 07 (Item #: 2272816).

                      HOT TIP: Try layering Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer (Item #: 2272256) before styling. You will cut blow dry time, protect from heat up to 450 degrees, help reduce breakage and provide 24-hour lasting volume without weighing hair down!
