Most Helpful Positive Review Step aside, Olaplex! This is so much easier to use!
I used this set of three products once and am a convert. I have been wanting something to replace Olaplex because I just don't have the time to let that sit in my hair for ages. My 15-year old daughter who has bleach damage also loved her results with this set. I will repurchase when we run out. This will allow me to keep my long hair which was driving me crazy with how damaged and frizzy it was.
Most Helpful Critical Review Great scent not great results
I've tried everything for my stressed, damaged hair to try and bring it back to life and I've been hearing about this collection from Redken for months now before it was released. After some consideration I decided to try this and wearing gloves I followed the instructions for use. I shampooed, then conditioned. Once out of the shower I towel dried my hair with a microfiber hair towel and massaged in a small amount of the leave-in before putting up my hair and letting it air dry as I went to work. I really enjoyed the light subtle grapefruit citrus scent of these products and I like how it came with a leave-in treatment which is easier for me to use than one if those multi step rinse out treatments some brands do. Aa you can see from the photos my After looks very frizzy and dry still, maybe even worse than my Before picture! My hair type is fine/dry/damaged/stressed/dyed/textured which is exactly what this product is supposed to be for but it did not help me. Sadly this will be a return if I can.

I have applied this to my hair 3 times. It looks drier and nothing noticeable or detectable happened. I have fine curly hair. Go for the all soft instead.
Dramatically changed my hair even after one use
Bridget from Morehead city, nc
I love the smell of this product. I've had tremendous hair loss post covid and lots of breakage. After using this product, my scalp stopped itching and my ends looked much healthier. It definitely smoothed my breakage. I wish it did more for my frizz, but it was a dramatic improvement. My hair felt super soft too.
LOVE. LOVE. LOVE IT.
CocoMoco from La Mirada, CA
I was skeptical about the product. I have been using a different brand that is a little bit cheaper and I left my hair. So jumping to the more expensive product I was a bit worried that it would be waste of money... Let me tell you I was pleasantly surprised Athey surprised at how wrong I was. The 3 step program change my hair it's soft it's easy to work with and I will definitely be spending more money to get the full size.
An expensive disappointment
Straight Forward from Florida
Trial size?...more like the size of a hotel shampoo/conditioner. I do have slightly porous hair with outer layer dryness. This product made my hair even more dry, more frizzy and the smell was just strange. My newly treated ash based toned hair faded and now has brass. I wanted to love this because of the positive reviews. My scalp itched for 2 days after using. I am so disappointed.
Laura from Tennessee
Worked great on my very thin and damaged hair. After one use I noticed a difference.
Made my hair look worse
Katie from Troy, MI
This was awful- made my frizzy hair look even more broken and damaged. Will not be using again.
Best hair day in months
Megan Leeann from Chicago suburbs
I used this set for the first time this morning, and I'm experiencing my first good hair day in MONTHS. It air dried without looking flat, oily, and weird like it had been drying lately, and required minimal styling effort afterward. And I'm finally living a day without static! For once, I don't have strands clinging to my face and floating up behind me or sticking out from my part. I forgot how magical it is to have hair that lies the way it's supposed to. It looks good, smells good, feels good. I guess I'll have to drop the money on the full sizes. (I think I will get several more uses from this set, though. I didn't deplete as much in one use as other reviews made me believe I would, but my hair is also not super thick or long, so, there's that.)
Meso from Illinois
It's great product from the first use
Worked for me
Layla from La
Going to get the larger bottles, happy I could test it out.
Definitely a game changer
Kathy E from Milford, PA
My hair feels better after the first use. I will definitely be buying the full sizes of these! My hair is soft and silky instead of dried and like straw
Amazing Product! (Just don't buy the tester)
Catherine from San Diego
This product is absolutely amazing! I have truly/wavy hair, and use this whenever I'm about to get my hair done or want to blow dry/straighten my hair. The only con is that the sample kit is so small and for me only lasted for one wash. I would recommend going for the full-size products! I'll be so soft!
Wow! It really does work.
Pgram324 from South Glens Falls, New York
This is a breakthrough product that Redken has developed, and it really is a breakthrough product! I have already purchased the full-size bottles for myself. Thanks for offering the travel size to try. Smart move on your part. Thanks, Redken!
Amazing for Damaged Hair
Kate from Texas, USA
I bought the travel size to see if the hype was worth it and it totally was. I have pool damaged hair and could immediately see the difference.
JustAnn97 from Ohio
The very first time I used this, I could tell a difference in my hair! I have been using NOTHING BUT REDKIN products for 2 years on! This product is on Point with my hair!! Love it!
E.B. Blunt from No ha
This product is awesome. I use it twice a week as a switch up from my regular Redken routine, and I love it. It makes my hair soft and sleek with lots of shine. My hair has some damage from color that I'm growing out, and this product makes it unnoticeable, it all just looks like healthy hair.
Cass from Idaho
Static central. My hair has never been staticy but after I used this it was so bad. But I do have to say my hair is very soft and feeling stronger.
Amy from Orlando
My hair is an ashy blonde, naturally, but I do color the roots every 6-8 weeks for "arctic blonde aka grey" coverage. I use purple shampoo to keep the brassiness in check but only have to use it every couple of weeks. I use Moroccanoil daily and still only need the purple shampoo on occasion. My first use of this shampoo and conditioner and my hair looked very brassy/orange when wet. I did use the leave in, too, because that's the routine and upon drying I went from ash to brass. My hair did appear more well behaved when dry but I probably won't use this again because of the tone change. Yes, I can use the purple shampoo to tone it down but, for me, that defeats the purpose a bit. Aside from this issue, it seems like a nice product. Smells good. Lathers well. Shampoo wasn't drying. Just won't work for me. I do like Redken products.
Hair is soft!!
Erin from Houston, TX
Pros: my salt and pepper hair is now very soft. I have more smoothness and less frizz.
Cons: it didn't totally eliminate the frizz (I also live in Houston with high humidity). I really don't like the smell. It smells like a mix between children's cough syrup and the conditioner packets you get with home hair dye.
Waste of my money
CC from East TN
Very small amounts of product for $30. I used as directed etc., nothing. Definitely not for all hair types as described…
LOVE LOVE LOVE
Julia from Cookeville
I use redken everyday but got this small set to travel and it was my first time using the bond maintenance and it made my hair so soft! I absolutely love it!
Dried out my hair
Evolving62 from Middletown, RI
I had high hopes for this product. After 3 uses my hair felt so much drier than before. I purchased 2 of these kits at a BOGO. I may have to return the second one, because I won't use it. I'm on the hunt again.

KN from NW Arkansas
I received this pack for free for placing an order. I love it! I plan to place an order for full size bottles immediately. It is lightly scented, which I prefer over the more heavily perfumed products. It truly is concentrated.
Love this product!
Christine from Las Vegas
So I moved from Michigan to Vegas and the desert has definitely taken a toll on my hair! I have been struggling with it due to the excessive heat and dryness! I bought this product on a whim and my hair finally feels silky smooth and beautiful again! I will be getting the large bottles.
Would not by again
KDR111 from Teays Valley, WV
I'm 51 with very healthy, strawberry (more toward reddish brown) hair. I do color to cover roots 😣. My hair is 3C (to the best of my determination) and it's natural. I've worn it shoulder length and curly my entire life. Recently, my hairstylist and I decided it was time for a change, cut a bit off, I decided to start straightening because the curls just weren't doing it for me. I used a blow dryer and rarely a L'ange straightener. I also tried several "high end" retail shampoos, conditioners, leave ins, and heat protectant sprays. All the same result. Hair frizzy from midshaft down and no shine. So. I decided to go with a "luxury" brand and chose Redken Acidic Bonding Concentrate Trial Size Shampoo, Conditioner, and leave in. First of all they are TINY, and I got one wash out of them. I know they are trial/travel, but they are usually bigger than this. I will try to attach a picture compared to a standard size mascara. Disappointing considering the price was, I believe with tax and shipping, $55.00. My hair did blow dry more quickly and had a very pleasant scent. However, same results as "drug store" brands: no shine, frizzy from midshaft down. I DEFINITELY had to heat treat heavily and flat iron. I couldn't give it another chance, because they were used up in one wash! Would not buy or recommend.
