      Comments about Redken Extreme Mega Mask:

      Every time Redken comes out with something new I decide to give them a chance and every time I end up disappointed. This is definitely the last time. This conditioner did nothing for my hair except leave it worse than before I washed it. My hair felt rough, dry, and brittle. I was afraid to brush it and I had to put a lot of leave-in conditioner to soften it up a bit. Too late to return it so I'm just gonna throw it away.

      Comments about Redken Extreme Mega Mask:

      It works very well, however...
      It's so hard to get out of the tube. If you read the "details" section for this product, you'll notice it says there is a dual-chamber design. On the back of the tube there is a specfic place you're supposed to squeeze from. Hard to do, especially during 2nd use.

      The other thing is the smell. It's awful. I can understand if that's their way of keeping things simple without additional fragrance. However, I don't think this is the case here. I think this was a choice.

      The Redken Extreme Shampoo is fantastic though!

        Comments about Redken Extreme Mega Mask:

        Once I dried my hair after using this I cried. My hair felt like hair again!! I had come to the realization that my hair was very bad damaged. I went to a salon 4 days ago she over processed my hair melting off some of my hair. Everything I seen said there's no coming back from that kind of damage. Mind you my hair was very long almost to my butt. What was left after a cut was about shoulder length broken off looking dried and fried. I was told to use this to repair my hair. I honestly thought I had little chances of saving my hair till today!! I washed with argon shampoo and conditioner then applied the hair mask. Let it sit for an hour on my hair while wrapped up in cloth not towel. I rinsed it out and it felt a little dry at first. I used my blow dryer with no heat just cold air and the top of my hair dried really fast and it is amazing. It's soft like hair should be and it shines again. I started to cry honestly because I didn't think anything could save my hair but this has been a miracle so far. I will keep using it once a week as advised from the stylist. Anyone who thinks there is no hope for your hair. Don't give up there is with this product.

            I like the hair mask when I used it in the shower, and I noticed a difference in the texture and appearance of my hair the next day, it definetly was softer and straighter. However, I used it the night before I went in to get highlights and it cause the hair color to become extremely hot, burning my hair, so watch out!! The protein complex can have a bad chemical reaction.

                    I got this as a sample in my last order, and I'm definitely buying the full size. I can never get that "just from the salon" feel, and that's exactly what I get from this mask. My hair feels so soft, but not greasy or weighed down. And it smells great!

                      If I color my hair every four weeks, should I use this the week prior or week after coloring? It doesn't sound like I should use it the week of coloring because it might keep my hair from absorbing the color?

                    • Q:

                      I've been using Redken Extreme shampoo and conditioner for years. My hair has always been shiny, full, and smooth. Out of nowhere, my hair started to break off and looks kind of fried in a few areas around my face, several fly aways. I'm assuming stress, aging, and sunshine are to blame, but I really have no idea what to do. I have been babying my hair big time...no hot iron, blow drying with no heat, using a leave in conditioner, and I do not wash my hair daily. I have been looking at the Redken Extreme Mega Mask and the Redken ph bonder. Can I use these together? What combo of Redken products do you recommend for this issue?

                        A:

                        The Redken Extreme line is perfect for you. You can reduce breakage by 75% when you use the Redken Extreme Shampoo, Conditioner and Anti-Snap Leave-in Treatment. For added strength and benefits, Extreme Mega Mask can be used in place of the Extreme Conditioner every third time you wash your hair.

                        Redken pH Bonder can also be used, once a week, before shampooing. Redken pH-Bonder Post-Service Perfector helps maintain hair's natural pH. It reinforces weak bonds, delivers additional care, and smooths the hair.

                        A:

                        Extreme Mega Mask is an exciting new addition to the Redken Extreme line. It offers deep conditioning plus a long lasting repair treatment that lasts for 3 washes. We suggest that you use it in place of your Extreme Conditioner every third time that you wash your hair.
