Super easy to use. I put it on after shampooing with Joico purple shampoo. I wringed my hair out an applied it from about 3-4 inches from my root through the length of my hair and lathered. This formula feels exactly like water. It doesn't really suds up but it almost heat activates which is kind of cool but also made me wonder what chemicals are in there to make that happen. I rinsed it out and immediately I could feel a difference. I followed with conditioner and after showering finished with my regular styling routine. I think this product did a great job of smoothing my blonde color treated hair. I'm looking forward to seeing how my hair responds with continued treatments.
Most Helpful Critical Review Loaded w/ Alcohols (some good, some bad)
I used this after having my whole head bleached and dyed a bright orange. I understand that color fades with each wash but when I used this, my hair color faded significantly, more than what I'm used to. I looked at the ingredients and noticed there's at least 5 different alcohols in this, including Alcohol Denat and Isopropyl Alcohol. Not only is this solution highly flammable (yikes) but I feel like it contributed to the drastic fading of my hair color.

Bought this to help my long, highlighted fragile hair with very thin ends. It's very easy to use and smells good. I shampooed with a moisturizing shampoo, squeezed out the water, then used this product.
It feels warm and kind of foams up, after I rinsed it out, I used a Heavy duty conditioner afterwards because I felt like I needed more moisture. My hair felt slightly better (smoother
and more 'heft' on the ends) while wet.
After blow drying, I was both surprised and very happy with how much better my ratty fragile ends looked. My hair was much smoother, sleeker, and shinier. Very happy with this product.
The only minor complaint is that it's hard to tell how much you're using- I will measure out into a small cup next time to make it easier.
Bleached Hair Holy Grail!
Brittany P from GA
Ya'll ever been scared all your hair is going to break off after a bleach service? This erased that feeling for me. This product is revolutionary!!!!!!!!!!! You can immediately notice a difference. My hair is in the best shape it has ever been in. I wash twice a week. Once with a purple shampoo, once with regular. I use the product after my purple shampoo every time. It makes my hair so soft and sleek and HEALTHY feeling. No longer worried about my hair falling out. I am literally going to take this to the salon with me to have her use it after my bleach/shampoo service! You need to get this. NOW. The molecules are actually small enough to go in the hair strands and make a change unlike the thick creams.
My hair was transformed
Jeannie prz from North charleston sc
I have painted hair and in my last dyes they gave me chemical treatment to bleach and make it take a strong color. Since then my hair has weakened, split and looks lifeless. I have used these products Redken Extreme Bleach and I love it...After bathing my hair I apply Redken Extreme Bleach Recovery -Lamellar Water, my hair has healed all the mistreatment I have done to it, it feels super soft, it is not greasy but it feels nourished, the touch feels pleasant. I feel like it's restoring my hair and it doesn't feel dry but hydrated. wow, I am delighted with the product, my reaction was of surprise because I have lived in this country for 4 years and had not found products to repolarize my hair and finding these products was very pleasant, I recommend it 100%.

The Bleach Recovery shampoo and leave in conditioner are good. For the life of me I have no idea why this product, marketed for bleached hair, has FOUR types of alcohol in it.Possibly those having issues with this line are reacting to the high alcohol content in this product.
Made a lot of hair fall out
Mrs. Salvatore from WI
I was experiencing more than usual hair loss after dying my hair. I decided to try this product out to see if it would help. I lost 5-10 times more hair as I had been losing. So be very careful using this product if you are experiencing hair loss due to dying.

Best bleach repair I've ever used
LilithMoon from Bandon, Or
I've only used it once and WOW! My hair was virgin and I bleached it 3 times. Needs to be bleached at least two more times (going white blonde and it's still yellow/orange) and this stuff is going to safely get me there and keep my hair feeling healthy. The application is a little weird but not impossible. I used the Cica cream too but I could tell immediately after putting this on my hair that it was already repairing. It was so silky in the water. Definitely going to be a staple in my hair care routine
RoMo from MI
Returning this. It was expensive and my hair showed no change at all. It's mostly alcohol.and water!
Amazing! If you only buy one product, make it this.
Caity from Palatka, Fl
So I purchased after taking my hair (with a stylist) from dark brown/black to almost platinum.
I am a white female, who has very thick, naturally curly, dry hair and who box dyed it black / brown for years. I recently took my box dyed hair platinum and while it's healthy thanks to a great stylist, it's very dry from the bleaching.
I've been buying every hair mask and treatment know to man for bleached hair (including olaplex) and this has been one of the best (if not the best) purchases I've made.
I was skeptical to purchase something that honestly just looks like plain water to me, but I thought it was different and something I had not seen before so I made an impulse buy.
I did not purchase the extreme bleach recovery shampoo or cica cream at the same time, because I just didn't lol.
I used this after shampooing with another Redken conditioner and used as directed and then used a redken conditioner after (the mega soft to be exact, the same ones I've been using forever)
And it made such a difference. I cannot yet compare it to olaplex (I have my olaplex system but am waiting to try it last), but this stuff is incredible.
After one time in the shower used as directed, it made my bleached, fried, dry hair look and feel incredible.
I recently repurchased another bottle of this along with the shampoo and cica cream.
It's a must for bleached hair! Trust me ! Follow as directed!
Andi from MT
I don't normally write reviews ever but this stuff is literally magic. I've never been one to dye my hair frequently but quarantine got the best of me & after bleaching, dying, color removing & bleaching again about 3-5 times my hair was dramatically shorter & felt like hay. I tried so many treatments nothing really did anything. But then I found this. After the first use my hair was so noticeably better! Softer, shinier & wasn't getting tangled like before. The one. The bottle was enough for three uses(I have shoulder length hair) & by the time I was done with it my hair felt like before bleaching (with the exception of my dead ends). Highly recommend if you've gone a little overboard on the bleach like myself!!!

I use this once a week on my color treated hair. I'm at the beach a lot and this helps with my sun damaged hair
Elimarie from Texas
It is a good product I love how soft it is and my hair smells good. I recommend it.

Makes hair have weight again
Nan from Houston
I'm not sure if this works for all hair types and all situations but my hair is fine (but I have a lot of it) and bleach / color have left it very porous - this works great for me. You will know it if you have porous hair- hair dries too quickly, feels very light and either holds onto too much product (such as deep conditioner) making it greasy or doesn't hold on to it at all. This product makes my hair feel substantial and weighty again. It dries normally and behaves like real hair again!

It's best to put it in a spray bottle to apply.
Life (hair) saver!!!
Danielle from Michigan
This stuff works amazing! I recently went from dark brown hair to almost platinum. I cut my hair super short because of the damage and still had some pieces that were fried. I've used this twice (along with the shampoo and leave in cream) and my hair feels amazing. No visible damage, it looks really healthy. I would recommend using all of the products with the anti snap redken leave in because it is 1000% worth it.
Can't really tell the difference
Michelle with the bad hair from CO
It's not bad, but I was expecting more dramatic results. I just can't tell the difference between this and my old shampoo/conditioner/ leave in combo which was much cheaper- Pantene ProV shampoo/conditioner and Fructise leave in treatment.
Made my hair feel really dry after styling

Nothing nice about it except the scent

Love this product! It really works on making your hair feel so soft!
Not just for bleached hair!
SylviaA from Gainesville, Fl
I know this product is marketed for bleached hair but I like to try products out no matter. I have dark brown hair that's perpetually dry. This made an immediate difference. My hair was smooth & shiney and I didn't use any conditioner or product before styling. It's like silk. Not even Olaplex or Uberliss or a PM Shine treatment has done this. The only thing I'll watch for us color fade which someone else mentioned in a comment. Otherwise it's a hit for ANY color dry/damaged hair.
Made my hair worse!
Kiki from Philadelphia, PA
I bought this for help with growing out a bleach bayalage. I have fine hair, dark blonde, and the bleached ends are about halfway grown out. They are dry and damaged, rough feeling. I tried using this after shampooing as instructed, and it left my hair in such a rat's nest, extremely dry and stripped my hair of all moisture. I had to soak my hair in a Kerastase mask, and then use the Redken leave in just to get a comb through it. I just can't recommend this product, and I am a fan of Redken.
So worth the money
nmbustamante from El Paso, Tx
My hairdresser recommended this to me for my bleached hair and it's made such a difference for me. I would definitely recommend this product along with the leave in conditioner.
