    Comments about Redken Cerafill Maximize Dense Fx Hair Diameter Thickening Treatment:

    I've only used it twice, but it really does thicken my thinning hair. It's easy to get my hopes up, only to have them dashed, when trying products that claim to help with this discouraging problem. This product is a keeper!

    Great For Hairstyling

    By Leondreramos

    from San Antonio TX

    Comments about Redken Cerafill Maximize Dense Fx Hair Diameter Thickening Treatment:

    This is a great product if it's used right. A little goes a LONG way for guys. After applying to mildly damp hair, blow dry it to your desired hair style. Then spray a little on finger tips to finish the look & give it some texture.

    Comments about Redken Cerafill Maximize Dense Fx Hair Diameter Thickening Treatment:

    My hair is thinner so I bought this to thicken it up some. I followed directions but so far it leaves my hair on the oily side. I need to play around some more to figure out what works best for my hair.

    really works!

    By bethysunflower

    from Tallahassee

    Comments about Redken Cerafill Maximize Dense Fx Hair Diameter Thickening Treatment:

    I have baby fine hair and this is the only volumizing product I've come across that actually does what it says it does. It makes your hair feel and look thicker, and it adds texture and grip. You can use it with a blow dryer or without; I get about the same result with both methods. My only real gripe with this product is the price.. I use this product nearly every wash and it goes fast. But I will continue to but it because it is worth it, and there are usually sales on it at Ulta or on Redken's website.
    Tips for application since I couldn't find any online:
    -Spray into your hands, rub together, and work through roots of half-dry hair. Make sure to rub it into your scalp. Run a comb from root to tip to evenly distribute the product; if you don't do this, your hair will feel a bit sticky.
    -Blow dry or let hair dry naturally

    I love this product!!!

    By Diana

    from Lake Ozark, Mo

    Comments about Redken Cerafill Maximize Dense Fx Hair Diameter Thickening Treatment:

    My hair was getting so thin, especially at the crown that I used to tease it at the crown and spray with hairspray to try and cover the thinning crown area. This product is great! I no longer need to tease my hair!! I saw a difference with the first use and will continue to use. After shampooing I spray the roots then comb through my hair to the end. As I'm blow drying my hair I use my hands or a round brush and continue lifting my hair as it drys. My hair looks so much thicker and healthier.

    • Q:

      I already use minoxidil 7.5%. I have started using cerafill shampoo and conditioner. I also bought cearfil retaliate. In which order should i use the products? Should I add anything like dense fx?
      Asked on 2/11/2018 by susan from Gauteng

      1 answer

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        Redken Cerafill Retaliate shampoo and conditioner should be used first to cleanse the hair and scalp. Check with the manufacture of the Minoxidil you are using for specific usage directions. Typically this would be applied after shampoo and conditioner. Dense FX is a great thickening treatment and it can be your last step in your regimen, after using the shampoo, conditioner and minoxidil.

    • Q:

      P.S. Do any of the products I just purchased provide heat protection? oh, sorry keep thinking of more question.....I was thinking of getting the Mess Around wax. Will that help after my hair is dried and loosely styled if I use it at my roots and kind of (no pun intended) mess it around with my fingers at the roots?

      I use Aveda Prep spray on my slightly towel dried hair Aveda volumizing shampoo and conditioner. I just purchased this product along with Redken Thickening Lotion , Guts 10 and Wax Blast 10.Also the High Rise Volumizer. A you can see I am determined to increase the volume of my fine hair and make it healthier. My question is: Can I use this product after using my Style Prep?
