        I would probably buy this, but the bottle is way too small for the price. I have super long hair and I would have to buy a lot of these over time to actually see it if it's working on my length.. I don't have that time or money lol, but the time I did use it, it made my hair truly softer and for that reason I definitely would recommend!

              Love all the products in the extreme length line. I use the primer twice a week in place of the conditioner, and leave it on for 5 minutes before rinsing. Makes my hair silky soft! I have noticed my hair grows faster and is healthier while using the whole extreme line.

                Why do all Redken products smell so strongly of chemicals, it is the one thing that prevents me from trying more of their stuff. As far as this product goes I don't understand how something you rinse out after 3 minutes can possibly do much for your hair.

                  I've been growing my hair out for a couple of years. Maintaining the length became a challenge for a while due to split ends. This product has decreased the amount of split ends significantly. My hair has grown 5in since I started using the primer. I highly recommend this product, it actually works.

                  • Q:

                    I've read in several of the reviews that the primer can be used either in place of your regular conditioner but also it can be used as an intensive treatment, that being said, as a daily conditioner what makes it different from the conditioner? When used as an intensive treatment, what differentiates it from the mega mask?

                      Redken Extreme Length Primer is for distressed hair that won't grow past it's breaking point. It is perfect for growing out hair. A regimen of Extreme Shampoo, Length Primer and Length Sealer is recommended to get hair back to its healthy state and achieve its full length potential. The Extreme Daily Conditioner is for all types of distressed hair. It detangles, smoothes and strengthens damaged hair. The Extreme Mega Mask is an intense treatment and care extender. The dual chamber design includes 2 different formulas, a mask for intense conditioning, and a care extender to provide strength that last up to 3 washes. It fortifies hair to be 15X stronger.

                  • Q:

                    I have long thick wavy/oily hair and I shampoo/condition daily with Redken extreme and I also use anti snap daily. I do not process my hair and only occasionally blow-dry. But recently, due to age I assume, my hair has become brittle and is breaking severely. I recently bought the full extreme line but I'm wondering in what order should I use them all. Do I shampoo and then condition then use the mask or primer ect. And do I still use the anti snap before styling?

When not using the Mega Mask, use the Length Primer, leave on for 2-5 minutes, rinse and follow with Length Sealer, Do not rinse out. Anti Snap can be used on fragile or damaged areas, or all over prior to styling your hair.

                      A:

                      The Redken Extreme Mega Mask is best used ever 3rd wash, The Cat Protein Reconstructing Treatment is recommended 1-3 times a week. Alternate it with the Mega Mask. Extreme Anti- Snap is a leave-in and can be used daily. You can use Extreme Length Primer in place of conditioner every time you shampoo. Or, if you prefer, you can alternate it by using Extreme Conditioner once and Extreme Length Primer the next time. Extreme Length Sealer is also a leave-in that can be used on the ends of the hair daily.

                      A:

                      Great question! Hair cannot be over-proteinized with any Redken products. The molecular structure of our formulas makes this impossible. Structurally, the hair can only absorb what it needs and the rest gets rinsed away.

                      If your hair needs a little extra moisture, detangling, and shine, we recommend that you follow up with Redken's One United Multi-Benefit Treatment Spray. http://tinyurl.com/y7zdhle5

                      The Extreme Line will help strengthen and restore damaged hair. You might want to try The All Soft Line, this line is for dry, brittle hair. All Soft will leave hair soft, manageable and shiny.
