How to Use
Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars
I have semi long hair and stubborn hair always. Its hard for me to tame my hair a certain way since its so thick. I applied thia out of the ahower on fresh damp hair. When I first applied the product to my fingers I wasn't sure the consistency would match the claim of the hold. I was very very mistaken. This had a smooth application and really made my hair feel soft when I was applying it throughout my hair. A little bit goes a long way with this product. There is no smell to it at all which is great because some are very overpowering. The hold is excellent and has lasted all day without any reapplication which is very very nice. Other gel products would dry out my hair and leave it crispy and later I would have residue but not with the Redkin one. Hair especially for men is difficult to maintain but with this in my grooming kit I don't plan on having any more bad hair days thanks to this. Overall this is a great product if you have stubborn thick hair like me. I have recommended this to my barber and everyone in the shop who uses gel. I was sent this product in exchange for my honest review.
My husband and I received a free sample to use and we did so on a recent trip to visit family. Typically, my husband and I use pomade to style our hair, but since the sample was under three ounces, we decided to try the product out on our trip. Before we received the sample, I was familiar with Redken but not their Men's Brews Extra Clean Gel. In my opinion, the product is very liquidy and I wasn't sure if I had used too much or too little. When I applied it to my hair, I also used water to make my hair stay down and the product seemed to work well enough. On the other hand, my husband has very fine hair and he commented that the product provided him with no definition or volume. Basically, he said the product was only good to make his hair stay flat. While the product may work for others, because of my husband's fine hair, this is not a product that I would purchase in the future.
P.S. After I received the product, I received an additional email with the following words: Here are some questions to keep in mind as you eat your Redken Men's Brews Extra Clean Gel. Since I did not eat the product, I hope I used it correctly.

The product itself reminded me of honey, based on the color and consistency of the product. I really didn't notice much of a scent from the product. It did do a good job of holding my hair in place.

This treatment held well without a feeling super stiff. I think I'd use it again if I saw it in the store for the right price.
Dave from Phoenix
I have to say I was quite impressed by this Gel. I didn't even know this product was available until I stumbled on it online. It left my hair with a crisp clean hold that lasted all day! I will be a customer from now on.

I tried the Brews Extra Clean Gel for a few weeks and found it to be an ok product. Very easy to use and to carry on the go due to it's size. It also has a soft scent that I enjoyed very much. It's a very masculine scent. The only issue to me would be that it does not hold the hair that well. The consistency is very thin, a bit thicker than water so you won't have a strong hold at all. I would recommend this if you want to tame fly aways but it wont do a lot more than that.

This Redken Brews hair gel is a great product for someone looking for good hold without turning your hair stiff. I use it in the morning and it keeps my hair in place throughout the day while still maintaining some movement. I would recommend this product to a friend.

The Redken Brews Extra Clean Gel is my new go to styling product. This gel works great but also smells and feels great. This gel works so much better than other gels I've tried. The hold is great yet leaves my hair touchably soft with no sticky residue. I recommend this product and will be purchasing.

I have tried Redken other products prior but Brews extra clean gel I am trying for first time. I have seen Redken brews extra clean gel in stores but never thought to try it. This time I got to try Redken brews extra clean gel and it did good job. Smells good and holds my hair for full day. Its slightly costly but not too much. I would add brews extra clean gel in my current hair routine. I like to switch hair gels and this one is a good option. I do have some flakes and Brews gel takes care of it. I would recommend this and would buy this again. I would use it 2-3 times weekly not regularly.

Rubbed this product into my beard,felt soft and smooth.
Borst24 from Jenison, Mi
I've been searching for the perfect hair gel for a long time and thought I had it with this Redken gel. It says it's not supposed to be shiny or get stiff. I get both from it. I use a drop smaller than the size of tear drop and I still get a lot of shine and stiffness. I do style my hair while damp so that may contribute to it but I've been using a Garnier Fructis product recently that's very similar to the Redken but I get much better results from it. The Garnier also smells better. I wouldn't use it again.
Bostomm from Boston
Awesome gel. Goes on smooth and gives good flexible hold with no stiffness or stickiness. It's super fluid going on too so easy to distribute. Excellent. Smells nice too.

This hair gel have it's pros and it does deliver that clean look and feel in your hair and your hands when applying it. However it doesn't really give you an all day hold. My hair started falling flat and going every which way an hour in. Maybe it will hold if you're not gonna do anything.
Loran from Kelso Washington
Loved the scent and no greasy feeling. It wasn't hard either like hairspray.
bri guy from cleveland oh
This hair gel does leave a very clean finish and not sticky at all. The hold is not overly strong and does not leave your hair looking greasy.
Harold C from South Jersey
I received this as a free sample for a review and I am impressed with it! It doesn't leave my hair stiff like other gels. It goes on clean and leaves my hair looking more natural then other gels. I have used other Redken Brews products before and I am impressed by all of them. The size of the bottle is a little disappointing but your don't need that much in your hair. I will be buying this product in the future.
cmerroj from rochester, ny
I don't usually use any styling products in my hair but I was very pleased with Redken Brews extra clean gel. It's very light and is almost like there's nothing there but it will hold your hair for the day. I was very impressed that there was no flaking or hard crunchy spots in my hair after using it. Now I can style my hair with ease and know that it will look great all day long.
Wlassiter10 from Connecticut
The Redken Brews Extra Clean Gel gives you a very light and clean feeling on your hair. It doesn't feel hard or dry out your hair. No sticky feelings. I was not aware of this product and would buy it in the future. I would definitely recommend to family and friends. A winner for sure.
Dad in Tulsa from Tulsa, OK
Wasn't "wowed." It smelled good, held my hair in place. What surprised me is the consistency. It wasn't watery, but wasn't thick goop I'm used to either. And the brown color was not what I expected. Did it's job. Would probably get it again.
Texkann from San Antonio, TX
Great hold. I like the smell. I would definitely buy this product again!
RN from Chicago
During the week I use high hold/high shine products to keep my hair in place throughout the day. But that's overkill (and too much mess) for on the weekends. I've been using this on more casual days to go to lunch or go grocery shopping and it does and it does a great job. The scent is masculine but not overbearing. Highly recommended.
Sir Carolous from Washington DC
This gel introduced me to a new level of hotness. I have long hair that is beautiful, but bothersome to clean. Since my hair stunk to high heaven I immediately utilized the sample. The smell alone had me feeling like Fabio. Exiting the shower the difference was immediately noticeable. My wife clung to me like like I was a rock star. Sincerely, this stuff is great.
John from Salisbury, North Carolina
I absolutely love this Redken Brews Extra Clean Gel. I'm a professional, so I needed a gel with the hold, that can last all day. I've tried lots of them, but none of them, come close, in comparison; with this one. Not only, do I get the hold I need, it doesn't leave the white residue in my hair, that the other gels would leave. I will definitely be purchasing this again, in the near future.
