Most Helpful Positive Review Leave-In Conditioning, So Go Lightly!
This is the final step to the REDKEN Extreme Bleach Recovery System, the Cica Cream, which is a leave-in conditioner. I waited a few days before giving my review because the first time I used it I thought it left my hair a little greasy. I believe in always giving products two chances before dismissing them, as the first time might be a fluke. I'm glad I gave this a second chance. I simply used a little less the second time, and made sure to focus more on my ends and mid strands, and going lighter towards my scalp. This seemed to do the trick! Overall, I like the complete system and I'm glad I had the opportunity to try it out. I'm a huge REDKEN fan, and own several of their products! (My hair is not heavily highlighted, so I will probably only use this system occasionally on an as needed basis.) I hope that in the future there will be more info on the recommended usage, as I did not see that. I think is helpful to know if the system is recommended for daily, weekly, or occasional use!
Most Helpful Critical Review Your average leave in conditioner
Everything in this line smells amazing. Hands down one of the best hair scents ever, and its very long-lasting throughout the day. However, in terms of results, this is just your average leave in conditioner. I can find something similar for significantly less. If you are looking for a great smelling product, look no further but if you're looking for results, you may want to reconsider.

A little goes a long way. I like it for taming some of my frizzy parts. I love the way my hair looks right after I use this product...however I did notice later in the day my hair felt oily and a bit weighed down.
its not great but not terrible
jax from bloomington
hairtype: curly fine bleached with about an inch of damage. this is a glorified leave in conditioner. it did nothing to prevent breakage, it did make my hair soft. it kept some frizz down but I did pair it with a hair serum so not super impressed. I will not buy again, its sorta like a hoax. honestly just get something else. it smells good though...
Val from Nashville
If u have bleached hair u absolutely need this. My (super thick and naturally coarse) hair had been bleached 3 times in the past 2 months, super dry and tangly. This makes my hair so soft and manageable while also detangling. I don't think I'll ever stop buying this.
Smells like Pink Chiffon
Satrina from Maryland
This literally smells like Pink Chiffon from Bath and Body Works and for that alone I'd put in my hair daily! Thankfully it has more benefits than just that. I use leave in conditioners almost as a detangler for my damaged bleached ends, and this works perfectly for that. It lessens the frizz to my hair and makes it soft and shiny.
Not good from Ohio
6 months ago my hair was melted at the salon. The 400 degree leave in and redeem extreme shampoo/ conditioner are amazing. This product did nothing but weigh it down. Not a fan and if I could return in store I would. #COVID

I don't know how well this stuff is bonding my hair but it is definitely more manageable and soft after using.
My hair feels very nourished
Rosalique from Chicago
I have been using this product for about 2 weeks and I can honestly say my hair is softer, shinier, nourished, and much more healthier then it has been in a long time. I have the extreme bleach bundle which includes shampoo, Recovery Cica cream, and the lamellar water. While using the whole set my hair is everything that I have dreamed of, since I've been dying my hair for three years now. I definitely recommend this product to anybody!
Amarcie from Nj
After using the water like conditioner, this was nice to leave in. The first time I used too much and my hair was flat and limp. The second time I used less and it worked great. Smooth and silky.
Helped to recover my bleached hair!
Kids2injune from Surprise, AZ
I wasn't sure how much help my dry hair could get. Using other Redken products seemed to help a bit, but this one helped restore my hair to almost as hydrated as it had been before getting bleached. Helped to heal it and it even smells nicely! My only warning would be to use less than the instructions tell you to, otherwise it over-saturates your hair and feels strange.
Healthy Hair Hello
Hera761 from Colfax, NC
As the final step to this set I loved this stuff. I used it after my last salon visit to get highlights. The highlights I get leave my hair damaged from the bleach. I use this leave-in, and my hair is so much more easy to brush and comb through. My hair looks and smells so much better. Not looking fried and dead. I highly recommend this stuff for anyone who gets their hair lightened. Amazing results to follow.
Love this cream!
Linda K. from Nashville
This cream smells so good and makes my hair super soft and manageable!
Missys4 from Columbus, Ohio
I have to say I was not sure about this product as I felt it as too much for my fine hair. I definitely had to play with it each day with the amount I used. A little definitely goes a long way for me. I used too much the first fews uses and my hair was hard to blow dry and style. Once I figured out the amount - I like it. It is pretty good.
Cookie from Georgia
First time using these product and I must say I am very pleased. My hair no longer feels dry and brittle and it brought back the life to my hair.
Kara2683 from Kentucky
Great feel for damaged hair. Exactly what I needed!
Not for me
Heather from Illinois
This leave in conditioner goes on light, but still really weighed my hair down. I have naturally straight hair, and while blowdrying I can usually get a little volume. With this product in my hair, I had absolutely no volume and my hair laid right against my head. This product does have a nice scent.
Leaves my hair so soft
OhioIrish from Dublin
I love the way this makes my hair feel - well conditioned and a great smell. It's not tacky - my hair feels soft and not weighed down. The smell is light and clean. I'm impressed by this product.
Tames hair, smells wonderful
dembry from Kentucky
I received this, Extreme Bleach Recovery Cica Cream, in my free #BzzKit. I love the way it makes my hair feel and the smell is amazing.
cmlindsey from Placentia
with my dry processed bleached hair I am always looking for new products. I used the whole 3 step process and am extremely happy. My hair feels soft and rejuvenated
Ok product, packing needs work
NHDI from NC
The Recovery Cica Cream works ok if you figure out the right amount to use. I had to figure out just how much worked on my hair. It smells very nice.
Packaging - tiny white text on light blue background just doesn't work. I can't read it. Even blowing it up on my phone camera I had trouble reading it.
Michelle from Nashville
Leaves hair so amazing as if I had paid at the salon. Highly recommend
Hair so soft
LeeLee from Catawba NC
Absolutely love how this creme left my hair feeling so soft and smooth. Repaired my brittle hair instantly. This product is great for all hair types. My hair feels alive again. Would recommend to everyone.
Redken Cica Cream
ttfn12 from Lockport, NY
Redken Extreme Bleach Recovery Cica Cream helps to repair and strengthen damaged hair while adding softness and shine. My hair no longer seems dry and brittle after using this 3 step bundle of fortified products that help to restore its natural health. The deeply nourishing cream also improves hair manageability without any heavy residual feeling, and I liked the subtly sweet fresh scent. I would definitely recommend this leave-in treatment and the entire bundle of products for bleach recovery.
Patty from Demossville
This made my hair very soft
Best leave in product I've used!
amyboylephoto from Chicago
I usually have my hair colored at a salon, but due to Covid19, I've been doing my color at home. So glad to try this Redken Bundle. My color looks amazing, hair is so soft, and the smell is incredible. Love it so much - A "silver lining: in the shelter in place cloud!
Cytoblond from Louisiana
I received a free sample of Redken extreme bleach recovery cica cream and it is great! It is a leave in conditioner that is very light and doesn't weigh down my hair. I've used it for a week before my last highlighting treatment and for more than a week since then. It doesn't cause any brassiness and my hair feels soft and strong. And, as a leave-in, it doesn't affect styling at all. I highly recommend this recovery cica cream!
