Most Helpful Critical Review Disappointed
I have been using this product for years. Recently bought a new bottle not knowing that the formula had changed. Not only does the new formula make my hair feel weighed down and dull, but it smells terrible. Will no longer be buying this product.

For manufacturer, why did you change the product and keep the original name on product? Original was perfect. New product is not clear and seems to have some conditioner in it (milky) which is not what I need. New product weighs down my fine hair and does NOT have a clean and fresh fragrance as the original did. The pump spray on the original was better as it emitted a fine, controllable spray. Please bring back the original product.
Bad spray nozzle
DM from San Diego
The spray is uneven and bit difficult to push down.

works very good
Still a good product but not for me
Seawife24 from New Bedford Ma
This product makes my hair stiff and knotty. I have curly thick hair already and don't want a product to make it worse. I need a serum for my hair that works well for me. This product might be better for someone else with a different texture
Did not like would not buy again

Did not like. Do not use hair dryer
Great Protection and Hold
TXBORNTXPROUD from IL
I apply this to my dry hair before putting in hot curlers, using a flat iron or curling wand.
I probably won't buy this again
Shirley from AR
I straighten my hair everyday. My hair is very thick and this product didn't really work well with my hair.Chi works so much better and has a better smell. I dont like the smell of this product either.
First time trying
R.f from Az
I didn't think this was going to have a hair spray hold to it. Although it is very light I was looking for something to keep it soft after I styled it. It would be great for you if your hair doesn't keep a curl well. It just wasn't for me.
VP from CA
Great product. Does leave hair a little sticky at first you just need to comb through but all around great product.
I would not buy this product again.
Barb from Bought in Sarasota, FL
I did not like this product. It made my freshly shampooed hair feel gummy and not hold a curl very good. The hot set 22 works much better.
BEST THING EVER!!!
El from Wisconsin
I hated this product until I used it in wet hair. I used to be a die hard believer in dry heat protectant before flat ironing but I have changed sides. I LOVE this product in wet hair. It doesn't weigh it down, makes it super soft and protects it incredibly. Love love love.
Needs a better pump
Pat from Ohio
I have tried this product after having so much trouble with the 22 clogging up the sprayer. Neither will spray out of the pump. I even put it in a different bottle. Still clogs.
For the price I returned it
Does what it says for sure.
Steph from Alabama
I gave it 4 stars because it's not really what I thought it was. It definitely does hold shape very well, but it seems to make my hair feel like it had a ton of product and hair spray in it. Felt heavy
Gg from Milwaukee Wisconsin
This product left my hair very sticky and made my hair come out when I used it.The scent smells disgusting.I had to wash my hair several times to get the product out.No rating.
Love how my hair stays soft
Josefa from McHenry il
My hair is really straight is hard for me to get it to curl I wanted something that would allow it to stay curly but didnt feel oily or sticky
Lisa from VA
My hair has never looked better. I spray this on each section of my hair right before I curl/flat iron. This, accompanied with Redken Extreme shampoo and conditioner, are the best products that my hair has seen in a long time! Highly recommend.
Steph from Kennewick, WA
Horrible floral smell. I smelled like I had bathed in perfume. My hair was so sticky after I sprayed it that I could hardly get my fingers through it. It was almost impossible for me to curl it. I took this product back the day after I bought it.
Elaina from California
I was recommended this spray in store and I am planning on returning it. It made my hair feel really stiff and tangled and I hate the smell.

I put this in when my hair is wet prior to blow drying!
Doesn't work. Hard to wash out
ReneeC from Billings Mt
Used this on my daughter's thick straight hair when curling her hair for beach waves. I found the product to be sticky in the hair and didn't provide any additional hold and her hair became very fly away after finger combing and brushing out the waves. Her hair normally isn't dry at all. This is the only product I used on her hair. She said the product was very hard to wash out and caused her hair to become more tangley than usual. I used to be a hair stylist and Redken was my go to brand because of their quality but I'm very disappointed in this.
Use Day 1 for Day 2 and Day 3 hair
Aging Minimalist from Kitsap Co, WA
My fine, dry, wavy, plentiful hair has transformed using Olaplex shampoo and conditioner, but it STILL wouldn't hold a style. Now, I can get away with washing it every fourth day or so -- wash, squish to condish, air dry a bit then a dab of Kerastase L'incroyible and a dime blob of B&B thickening gel -- blow dry the crown/bangs; let the remainder air dry. Prep with Redken Iron Shape and curl or flat iron -- and I'm good for days. If you can't tell by what has finally made the cut, I'm a hair product junkie; I've tried so many drugstore and high end brands. I'm floored this works. I LOVE THIS!!
Changed the Formula
LGM from San Diego, CA
I used the Redken Spray Starch 15 for years. It was amazing and they discontinued it. Iron Shape 11 was the suggested replacement. I started using it several years ago and it did a decent job. They recently changed the formula -- UGH. It is thick, heavy, hard to work with and smells terrible now. I don't understand why they keep messing with their products -- if it ain't broke, don't discontinue it, and don't change the formulas.

This made my hair feel like straw. It's super heavy in the hair and leads to lots of tangles.
Mimi from Visalia, Ca
Not every product is going to work on everyone. When the product mixes with the body chemicals and oils products can change and not work the way they claim to. It's like a science experiment gone good or bad.
I love this product. I have been buying Redken Iron Shape for a very long time. I can actually say I have seen 4 different new bottle design.
Both my parents have very curly hair. One very tight curls and the other very light curls. Lucky me I have both. I have tight curls around my face and crown of my head. If I don't use Iron Shape everyday I look like Shirley Temple at 66.
I have tried other kinds of Iron Shapes type products but Redkens works great and is the best for me.
I love this!
Ceebo32 from Trenton, Michigan
I love this product. I use it specifically on day 2 to restyle my hair with the blow dryer and a brush. It gives me body and hold and smoothness. It helps with frizz and makes me hair shiny. It is not sticky and it smells nice.
