    Comments about Redken Extreme Length Primer:

    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.

                      For best results, follow with Extreme Length Sealer. Extreme Length Sealer helps prevent damage and breakage and helps reduce the appearance of split ends

                  • 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 using system of Shampoo, Conditioner, and Mega Mask hair is 15x stronger. Use the Extreme Mega Mask every 3rd wash. 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.

                      The Redken Extreme Length Primer is great to use in conjunction with the Redken Color Extend Magnetics. The Extreme Length Primer is going to be applied to the hair and rinsed out, if you wish to follow with a conditioner we would recommend using your Color Extend Magnetics. The Length Primer will help the strength the hair from root to tip.

                    I have noticed minimal breakage in my hair after using the anti snap treatment. If I choose to use both the primer, sealer, and anti snap treatment, could that overload my hair with protein? Is there such a thing as too much protein?

                      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

                    Trying to decide on which Extreme products to buy is making my head spin! My #1 goal is to grow my hair longer. With that in mind, should I use the Extreme Conditioner or Extreme Length Primer? Would it reduce good results if I alternated between the Conditioner and Primer?

                      Yes, you can absolutely alternate between the Extreme Conditioner and the Extreme Length Primer. This will provide the benefits of both products. Start with Redken Extreme Shampoo, use either the Conditioner or the Primer next, then follow with the Anti-Snap Fortifying Leave-in Treatment for up to 75% reduction in breakage!

                      Redken Extreme products will help strengthen your hair, which will reduce breakage. Using the Extreme Shampoo, Extreme Conditioner and Extreme Anti-Snap can reduce breakage upto 75%. You might choose to use the Extreme Length Primer and Extreme Length Sealer in place of the Extreme Conditioner. This combination of products encourages optimum hair growth.
