    Comments about Redken Thickening Lotion 06:

    I have lots of hair, but I have fine shoulder length hair. Without naming products, and I do have specific ones that work great, I use a volume shampoo and conditioner, apply the 06 in a generous portion (.50 cent piece) once out of the shower, blow dry, use steam rollers to get some of the wrinkles out and a great hair spray that gives it hold but still allows great movement and shine. My hair has always gotten compliments over the years and, even now that I'm 67, it still is the envy of many. I highly recommend giving the 06 a try. I've been using it for years.

      Just use a small amount on wet hair and dry as usual. My hair is straight with no body and this works great. I can go a couple of days without washing/styling for the first time in my life - and I'm over 60.

        I have been using this product for probably 20 years! I honestly don't know what I would do if Redkin ever stops making it. I have very thin hair and I am told by everyone that I look like I have a full head of hair. I don't!! I just use this product EVERYDAY! This product makes my hair thick and controllable. The only con for this product is if I happen to put to much on my hair at any given time it looks a bit frizzy— by that is easy to fix! It's hands down thin hair GOLD!!

                You don't need a whole lot of product for this to be effective. About the size of a nickel in your hand is all you need. It goes a long way with long hair or short.

                  I love this product has a nice light weight hold and is best used on damp hair that is to be blown dry. Still is nice with air dried hair but doesn't have the same texture as when it is blown dry.

                        I've been using this on air-dried hair, but it always comes out super crunchy. Any tips on how to alter this? I don't feel that I'm using an overly large amount of product.

                          Redken Thickening Lotion 06 helps to plump the hair with body and fullness. It has a medium hold great for fine to medium hair types.

                          For maximum control, please take a look at Stay High 18. Great for all hair types, and delivers a long lasting runway ready volume.

                          Dispense a small amount into hands and emulsify. Apply evenly to damp hair from roots to ends and style as desired.
