          I bought this to add texture to my new bangs. They're piecey straight across bangs, and this product made them look really good. It also holds well.

                        Although my hair is thick, it is fine with some natural curl. I have a hard time finding a product that will tame the frizz/curl, and still give me body. This product does both. I apply a small amount to my wet hair, blow dry, and follow up with another small amount to shape my hairstyle. I highly recommend this product for those of you looking for one product that does it all.

                          I have long, thin to medium, wavy/curly hair. I typically let it air dry, but occasionally diffuse it. Will this work on smoothing out my hair a bit?

                            Redken Rough Paste 12 offers ragged texture to your hair. It provides separation, grit and hold for hair that needs a little deconstructing. It is not for smoothing.

                            For anyone looking for smoothing and a soft natural finish for air dried hair, please check out our No Blow Dry products for Fine, Medium or Coarse hair. No Blow Dry provides frizz control and enhanced movement while leaving hair with a no product feel. Please check it out at Ulta or Ulta.com

                        • Q:

                          Is this the same product just a different look from probably years ago? I had the light gray tube with black & blue lettering. If this question can be answered, it would truly mean so much because I'm almost completely out & definitely would love more. This stuff is the best ever!! Thank you!!

                            Redken Rough Paste 12 offers long-lasting texture, separation and flexible control. It is ok to use your hot tools over this product, but we do recommend using an additional product that offers heat protection, such as Redken Iron Shape 11.
