Most Helpful Positive Review Very thick product
As a member of the Viewpoints Sampling Program, I had the opportunity to sample Redken's NATURE + SCIENCE EXTREME CONDITIONER. I have heard of Redken products before, but never purchased or used them. When I tried the NATURE + SCIENCE EXTREME CONDITIONER, I must say that it was very difficult to get the product out of the bottle, especially with wet hands. I finally managed to get it out. While applying it to my hair, all I could smell was a scent much like citronella (which I am not too fond of). I assumed my hair, once dry would, smell like citronella, but to my surprise, it didn't. It smelled fresh and clean. Also, while applying it to my hair, it did not give me the "slip" that I am used to feeling when I use other conditioners. This made it slightly difficult to detangle, but I managed. After styling my hair, I didn't feel as though it was a soft and silky as it is when I use other conditioners. With these few items of concern, I may or may not purchase the Redken NATURE + SCIENCE EXTREME CONDITIONER in the future. But, I will use the rest of my sample bottle, as to not waste it. I would recommend it others because they may have a better experience with it. Maybe it just depends on a person's hair type.
Most Helpful Critical Review Great scent but doesn't work for my hair
I love Redken products. I'm a big fan of their regular Extreme line and their All Soft hair products. Therefore I was excited to try Redken's Nature + Science Extreme Conditioner - a strengthening conditioner for distressed, damaged hair. Unfortunately this product did not do much for my hair. I used this for 2 weeks before I finally had to give in and switch back to my other conditioner. My hair is curly, coarse, and color treated. Plus I use heat styling tools and spend a good amount of time in the sun. My hair needs a powerful conditioner. This is not it. Sadly Redken's Nature + Science Extreme Conditioner left my hair feeling like straw and hard to manage. It took twice as long to brush out my hair. Leaving the product on my hair longer, 10 minutes, and finger combing to fully distribute and get out some tangles. This didn't change anything. On top of that, it is very hard to get the product out of the bottle. I recommend storing the bottle upside down but even then it's still takes way more effort than it should. The bottle is hard to squeeze and the conditioner is so thick. Product packaging is definitely wrong for the contents. A squeezable tube would be a much better choice. Really disappointed overall as I want to use more natural products and this one has 99% naturally derived ingredients. I love the scent of this conditioner. It smells like limeade. I received multiple comments on how my hair smelled. Not overpowering, but several friends noticed when they hugged me. "Your hair smells so good!". This conditioner is not hydrating enough for my very damaged and dry hair. I'll have to stick to the regular Extreme line.

I love Redken products but this stuff made my already damaged hair dryer, poofier and frizzier! Will be returning!
Save your money

This conditioner doesn't condition. I need to use a leave-in afterwards because it's so lackluster. It makes my hair fall out in chunks too! Additionally, it doesn't come out of the bottle and it stinks. I think it's really cheap of Redken to sell the conditioner smaller than the matching shampoo. More than anything, this product doesn't do what it claims to so why bother. There are way better alternatives out there. Never again.
Does not come out of bottle
Rhonda from pensacola
Not sure if Ulta is selling old products or if this was how it normally comes but there was no way to get the conditioner out of the bottle it was so thick. Tried unscrewing cap but it doesn't come off and ended up breaking it. Just threw it away, so who knows if the stuff is any good
Loridev71 from Wisconsin
I have just started taking steps to gradual go from medium brown to platinum hair. This is due to grey growing out. I love this conditionder because it does wonders to my fine, thin hair. It is so soft and manageable! The only concern I have is the packaging. The thick, creamy conditioner is difficult to squeeze out
Could you consider changing the packaging?
This is my new go to!!
I love love love this conditioner!!!
KristyB86 from West Columbia, SC
I have terribly damaged hair. This conditioner make my hair soooooo soft and manageable.
I also love that this conditioner is 99% naturally derived ingredients! It smells amazing as well. :)
The only thing I didn't really like was that I had a hard time squeezing the bottle, so I figured id just take the top off … the top doesn't come off. :/
All in all, this conditioner is amazing!
Would definitely buy this
ladyhaze420 from North Carolina
I mainly used when i was doing my daughters' hair. i would just wet the hair and put the conditioner on hair and comb through. it worked well as a detangler.
Leaves me with soft, fresh smelling hair. A keeper for me.
Bobbi -The Ultimate Consumer from Rochester, MN
Nature + Science Extreme conditioner far exceeds my expectations. I have fine, dry hair which other conditioners leave knotted and hard to comb through. It was so bad at times that I actually had to clip the knots out. They did not provide enough moisture to prevent my hair from tangling and falling out, this is not the case with this Redken conditioner. This conditioner allows for me to comb out my hair very nicely while wet, without breakage. When my hair is dry, it feels very soft, with mended split ends and is silky enough to run my fingers through. My hair feels thicker as well. I am also very pleased with the smell. I do not care for heavily perfumed and cheap smelling hair products. This has a nice, subtle fragrance to it, like fresh air. The consistency is pudding like and clings well to hair strands.
I was not aware of Nature + Science Extreme conditioner before given the opportunity to sample and am very happy I was given the chance, because it is something I very much needed. I will surely purchase this product again and would recommend it to others.
Db16v from MN
I like how thick this conditioner is. It goes on really nice. It works very well and my hair comes out nice and smooth. The scent is very pleasant and natural. I really like this conditioner but I do not like the bottle. It is hard to get the product out with wet hands. The bottle is too firm and it is very hard to squeeze the conditioner out because is the thick consistency. This is the reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5. If they fix the packaging I'd give it 5 starts for the product alone.
Will be buying product again and again
Ling34 from Knox
I used this product after the shampoo and I'm never getting another conditioner again! Left my hair so smooth and shiny. Just a great product smells is spot on and I personally think it works great! Easy to open lids and directions because we all know that each bottle has their own set of rules.
Faith from NM
Makes my hair smooth without damaging it.
I have colored treated hair and it is gentle to use. Did not damage the color. Highly recommended

Redeem Nature + Science Extreme Conditioner made my hair so healthy without feeling greasy! I love that it is natural also! I have found a new conditioner to keep my hair healthy and light.
Changing all my hair products to this brand
Lani from Los Angeles, CA
My hair is super dry and frizzy. It looks not great the next day when I've used other hair products. I've used this once and seen a major difference in my hair. It feel amazing. Soft and less frizzy in a sense. The following day it still looked and felt great.
Redsoxmom09 from Lynn, Ma
I noticed a big difference in my hair after the second use! It has only gotten better from there! My hair feels softer and looks healthier!
My only complaint is the packaging. This conditioner is very thick and too hard to squeeze from this bottle. I think it would be better in a tub container with a twist off lid.
I received this for free in exchange for my honest review.
Thick And Creamy With A Nice Smell!
Whitt888 from Oklahoma City, OK
I have long thick coarse frizzy damaged hair so I was excited to try this conditioner. While I have used Redken products before this was the first time I've heard of this specific conditioner and I was pleasantly surprised by the texture. This conditioner is thick and creamy and applies very easily to my hair and I love the smell since it's not overpowering. The only reason I'm giving this conditioner a 4 star is because of the bottle itself, it's a little tricky to squeeze it out especially while in the shower. Overall though I would definitely buy this conditioner and I would recommend it! I did receive this product for free for testing and reviewing purposes.
Mama from California
Sounds dumb but it's super hard to open and even harder to squeeze out. Once it's out it's a pretty good product. Smells fresh.
Leaves hair tame and rejuvenated
Silver J. from NJ
This conditioner is the thickest conditioner I have ever used, which made me weary of its results. It does, however, work exceptionally wellat taming frizz by leaving smooth hair. It is made of 99% naturally derived ingredients, so it is better for your hair's health. It does not feel greasy or weigh my hair down. It is designed to fortify distressed hair. My hair needs conditioner to keep it smooth and rejuvenated. This conditioner smells great and delivers results that you can see.
I would buy this product

Great conditioner for dry hair!
SimplyJocelyn from Bakersfield, CA.
This is a great conditioner system for severely dry hair. I've put my hair through some abuse in the past 2 years. Multiple different colors, bleached out highlights, heat styling, etc. I've had lots of breakage and used numerous masques, conditioners and oils. No matter what I used I would still have an impossible time combing my hair after washing. Not anymore. Redken has been around for years and with good reason. I started using this conditioner and immediately started noticing the difference in my hair texture. My hair no longer feels like its drying it out. I love the smell, and it applies wonderfully. The conditioner hydrates my hair without weighing it down. I never have a problem with tangles after a wash. Redken has a fantastic price on this conditioner. You really can't go wrong with this.
Vegan Redken Conditioner
Hailey from Jacksonville, FL
I have been using the Redken Nature + Science Extreme Conditioner for about 2 weeks now. There are some things that I like about it, and some I do not. First, the ingredients are great. I love that it is made with 99% natural ingredients. I also enjoy the texture of this conditioner. It is thick, but smooth and not too creamy. It works like a normal conditioner, but it's great knowing that I am using natural ingredients. I have very frizzy hair, so it is disappointing that this conditioner did not help to control that. I am also not a big fan of the scent. It almost smells like mosquito repellant to me. I'm not sure if it is the shape or design of the bottle, but it is slightly difficult to squeeze this conditioner out. It could also be the thickness of it. I think that is something Redken should work on. Because it is made with 99% natural ingredients, I would recommend it to a friend. Overall, I am glad that I got to experience this conditioner first hand. I would consider purchasing more if there were different scents, and some that helped with frizz control.
Gorgeous, Healthy Hair!

I recently tried the Redken NATURE + SCIENCE Extreme Conditioner and fell in love with it! It is a thick, creamy conditioner that immediately made my hair feel nourished! After using it my hair looked gorgeous & I received quite a few compliments (made me feel great)! My hair looks so healthy, bouncy & shiny! This is now my holy grail hair care products & I'll never be without it! Than you Redken!
Gave my hair life again...
MrsMareF from Modesto, Ca.
This RedKen Nature + Science Extreme Conditioner for distressed hair gave mine life again! 99% naturally derived ingredients make this a vegan haircare product and I LOVE THAT! The Silicone free formula has lupine protein to add extra protection to your hair. I usually have to use a detangler, I have really long hair, but after using REDKEN Nature + Science extreme conditioner I didnt need a detangler. I was able to comb my long hair without tangles. The shine was beautiful and my hair was very manageable. Feels very soft too.My hair feels stronger. This conditioner did not weigh my hair down like most conditioners do. I really like how this leaves my hair. I recommend REDKEN Nature + Science Extreme Conditioner if your looking for cleaner ingredients and a conditioner that actually does what it says! I love my hair after using Nature + Science extreme conditioner.
Rich conditioner, good for dry hair
KeliWI from Appleton, WI
I have curly hair that tends to frizz so I loved the thickness of this conditioner. It made my hair feel soft and smooth and had a great 'just from the salon' smell. The bottle was a little hard to squeeze but I just keep it upside down in my shower to help the conditioner come out easier.
Angelaj from Phoenix az
The redken conditioner works very good. I used it after shampooing. I left it on for about a minute. And then rinsed it out. I was pleased with the scent, very light lemon scent. Once I dried my hair it was soft. Frizz free not oily or heavy. I would buy product. And recommend to others who are looking for a natural vegan hair moisturizer.
Jrm from Washington, mi
This conditioner works very well! Lightweight, rinses easily. Within days I noticed my hair was smoother and easier to manage. Love the scent too.
MDCSE5 from Brookings, SD
Redken's Nature and Science Extreme Conditioner is amazing! I love how it has transformed my hair in the last few weeks I have been using it. I don't have extremely damaged hair but my hair is naturally dry and it breaks easily. I have noticed since I have been using this conditioner my hair has felt a lot softer and been a lot more manageable. The one thing that I didn't like is how the conditioner comes out. It took me a good couple of minutes to figure it out. Someone who is a regular Redken user might not have such an issue but someone that is new to the brand might have the same issue I did. Not something that you want to encounter when you are in the middle of washing your hair.
