          I hate hair sprays that make my hair stiff. They make me feel like I am wearing a helmet. This hair spray is light and lets me style my hair and work with it while still giving me terrific hold.

              I have side bangs that look out of control when I wake up the morning, a little bit of this hairspray and they get put back into their place and stay there for most of the day. And I work a hectic job with a lot of physical movement, so that's pretty good. Only issue I have is the smell. It's so strong you can taste it. It's not exactly a pleasant smell either. Gives me a little headache for the first hour.

                        A:

                        Forceful 23 is a finishing spray meant to be used after your styling is complete. Please take a look at Redken Hot Sets 22.

                        Thermal Setting Mist - Heat Protectant Spray. The maximum-control spray helps create heat styles with true staying power. Spray the setting mist on damp or dry hair to achieve a crisp hold when using blow dryers, curling irons or straighteners and get heat protection up to 450 degrees.

                    • Q:

                      I have stick straight hair. I'm performing as Clara in The Nutcracker, so it has to be half up half down and curled. My hair does not hold a curl for as long as 20 minutes. My Mom and I were searching for this Redken 23 hairspray. Will that help hold the curls? And for how long?

                    • Q:

                      Salon says this spray is water soluble and therefore will not build up on scalp and hair and rinses out easily.
                      True??

                        Yes, your stylist is correct. Redken Forceful 23 is water soluble and rinses clean away without leaving a residue.

                    • Q:

                      What's the difference between the Forceful 23 and the Control Addict 28?

                        A:

                        That is a great question! The biggest difference is that Control Addict 28 has a stronger hold than Forceful 23.
                        Each Redken styling product has a number that represents the amount of control it provides. The higher the number, the greater the control.
                        There are three levels of control:
                        · MILD CONTROL 01-05
                        · MEDIUM CONTROL 06-15
                        · MAXIMUM CONTROL 16-32
