Redken Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo removes copper, iron, hard water minerals and styling product build-up on all hair types. Formulated with fruit acids to add shine, purify, and refresh, this clarifying shampoo contains a high concentration of chelating agents that surround minerals, making them more soluble so they can be washed away.

Benefits:
  • Clarifying shampoo that removes copper, iron, hard water minerals and styling product build-up
  • Purifies, refreshes, and leaves hair shiny
Alternate with your regular shampoo. Apply to wet hair, massage into a lather. Rinse. Repeat if necessary. For excessive build-up, leave in 5-10 minutes. Rinse.

    Comments about Redken Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo:

    Third jumbo bottle I've purchased. This is my go to hair cleanser. I have somewhat oily hair and scalp and this really makes my hair and scalp clean without stripping and drying. I use it most everyday. If I skip a day without washing my hair I first shampoo with the Clean Maniac Micellar Shampoo and then finish with this shampoo. Leaves oily hair clean and shiny and healthy looking. I buy the jumbo bottle when the jumbo sizes go on sale so the price cannot be beat.

              Love how it thoroughly cleans any build-up, but leaves hair soft and manageable. Great for swimmers who need to remove harsh chlorine from their hair. Only con is the cost. It has had a significant increase. Even though it's not for daily use, and will last, cost is a concern.

Redken Clean Maniac Micellar Clean-Touch Shampoo deeply, but gently, cleans hair by drawing out dirt and oil like a magnet leaving hair feeling clean and healthy with a shiny finish. Silicone-free, sulfate-free, color-safe shampoo removes styling product buildup, mineral deposits and chlorine.

                        I buy liters of this and it lasts me a long time. I just restocked during the liter sale and noticed that the bottle was different. (also different from the picture here) It smells the same as what I am used to.

                        Is this just a packaging update or has the product been reformulated? I hope it's the same as what I have bought before because I love the original formula.

                        My daughters and I all have rust on our hair & on our scalps. My one daughter and I have brown hair so you don't notice it as much, but my other daughter used to have blond hair. I have tried several products & natural remedies, nothing works. I have to color her hair Dark Auburn or a shade of brown in order to hide it, but it still has a red tint to it. She would really like to be blond again. I have tried coloring it blond, but it doesn't work, it stays orange. We moved from the city to the country and we have well water. Would appreciate any advice others might have. We will be getting a water filter system sometime this year, but this has already been going on for 2 1/2 years. Thank you!

                          Without seeing your hair, we cannot answer for certainty... but we would guess that it was shine. Hair Cleansing Cream provides a purifying cleanse that would remove oils and add shine. If your hair has a tendency to be oily, please add Pillow Proof Two Day Extender to your daily haircare routine. Pillow Proof Two Day Extender Dry Shampoo instantly refreshes hair and absorbs oil to extend the life of your blow-dry by two days! Follow this link to learn more: http://tinyurl.com/yammh8e2
