Rated 4.55 out of 5 stars
I'm extremely happy with this Acidic Bonding Concentrate Leave-In Treatment! You don't need a lot of the treatment to see wonderful results. I use this leave-in treatment right after washing my hair. I use about a quarter size and was surprised how rich it is! Right away you can feel the softness in your hair. The most drastic result I saw from using this treatment is a reduction in frizz. These were the results that I was looking for and like the definition I see in my curls. I'd love to keep this treatment in my hair routine! I got this product for free in exchange for writing this review (lucky to try it)!
Let me start by saying I am not a Redken hater by any means. I use their All Soft S&C religiously. I went out of my way to purchase more of it because there was a promotion going on where I could get samples of the whole acidic bonding line after spending a certain amount. I was so excited to try this mostly because I had been wanting to purchase more Ol*plex but didn't want to spend the coins at that moment. I thought this might be a comparable alternative.
GOOD LORD I wish I could go back in time and undo!!!! My hair is very long and WAS verrry healthy. I have mostly fine, wavy/curly hair that's probably medium density just to give you an idea. I tried this product line all in one night and was planning on doing it weekly. I started with the treatment and followed with the shampoo, conditioner, and leave in.
Initially my hair felt fluffy (maybe even poofy) and soft. It seemed like it might be even retaining water better. I thought that was a good thing. Over the course of the week my hair became more and more unmanageable which was NOT a problem for me prior to using these products.
My hair felt and feels soooooo dry and soooo tangled. It's almost like I bleached it all over again, which I swore I'd never do. I cannot get my curls to really set without proofing out and getting frizzy. I used to be able to make one wash and go last a few days. Now my curls will not even last a whole day. It's truly heart breaking because I've worked so so hard over the past few years to get my hair in a healthy place. I've sacrificed length and time and money. I know for a fact this acidic bonding line caused this damage cause it was the ONLY change I made to my hair care routine that was working very well for me.
I couldn't recommend this product line any less. I'm sick that I didn't write this review sooner and was even sicker when I came to see it has 4.6 stars. I ended up splurging on the Ol*plex and while it helps a little my hair is still not the same. I'm going to cut off a few inches and see if that helps with the unmanageable tangles.
Good luck < 3

I love, love, love this product. All you need is a little bit after you wash and condition your hair use it before you blow dry your hair and your hair is silky. Soft with a beautiful shine. Even coarse dried out hair. All you need is a little bit and it goes a long way I would highly recommend this to everyone and all hair types.

My bleached hair is kinda tacky when drying and difficult to dry. This stuff makes is so smooth that i can let it fully air dry without looking like a mess.

I bought the shampoo conditioner and treatment just because I wanted to treat the little dryness I had on my ends. My hair wasn't really bad I had a full head of hair and a thick pony tail. About a month ago I started noticing hair loss worse than postpartum to the point now that I'm scared to wash or comb and it's drier than it was. These products did the complete opposite to my hair. At this point I need to invest in hair extensions Redken!!

Did nothing to my frezzy bleached hair. It did not tame the frezze, it did not make my hair softer. I will never buy it again!

I live this leave in treatment. It's so conditioning and not greasy.
Amaday from Tampa Bay
My salon owners suggested this product. One told me in her 25 years of her career this is THE best product she's ever used. I have now used this three times and I cannot even believe what it is doing for me. Even second day hair looks like this. I sleep with a braid in. I've stopped brushing my hair in the morning. It looks SO good without brushing and has no knots when I comb through with my fingers. I went out with them tonight and the lady who suggested this stuff told my regular stylist that my hair looks amazing. This (and my stylist!) are absolutely why.
I really like the scent, too. I like this one product so much that I just ordered the shampoo, conditioner, and spray treatment. It's amazing!

I love the smell of this product, however it dried my hair out. I really wanted to love it because so many people have amazing reviews of this product but it is just not for me. I'm trying the shampoo and conditioner right now and so far so good! My hair was soft and felt good after the shampoo and conditioner. Too bad that this leave in conditioner is so drying for me.

Absolutely a game changer & a need. I have used this product every day since I've started this career in every client. It works for everyone & makes the hair feel amazing!

I got a sample size of this product, but I'll be getting more very soon. My hair is dry in the tresses (I hair dry a few times a week/ environmental exposure/ salt pool) but I've always had an oily scalp. This is perfect post shower or pool dip to run through my tresses and tips. Spellbound by the scent as well!

I have 3b frizzy curly hair I have 30% grays, blonde highlights and just had my hair cut and colored. This entire line of bonding products smells so bad its cheap and has a weird berry scent with a chemical stank that is so offputting. I was expecting a better smell for a salon grade product-reminds me more of a cheap V05 shampoo smell! As for the effectiveness I dont think it did anything. I saw reviews it makes peoples hair silky but that wasnt my case. My hair feels drier than ever and didnt help much with the frizz.

Love the product, just want to know if I can use this in place of conditioner when I have limited water when camping
Nadine from Nashville TN
Dialysis dries out my hair so much it feels like straw. My hairdresser gave me a treatment using the acidic bonding. I couldn't believe how much better my hair felt. I bought it even though it was pricey. I love it.
Cindy from Binghamton, NY
This product makes my hair very soft!
Mireya from Corpus Christi Texas
I fried my hair with stripping the color out of my hair and using this product daily really helped!

Jackie from Walnut
I've bleached my hair for 20+ years and this has left it soft after one use. It has saved my hair from being super dry.
Foxdweeb from Los Ángeles , CA
I dye my hair pretty frequent but this past time my hair got really dry and frizzy for a couple of weeks so i decided to try this out and after the second wash my hair instantly looked healthier, not dry at all. This stuff is gold. And ive tried briogio and okaplex but it didnt work as well as this little bottle did. Will purchase again and again.

I have bleached,gray, and fine hair. I use this about once a week. Makes my hair feel absolutely fabulous. So soft and healthy. Not heavy at all.
Clara from Garden grove
I just bought this along w the shampoo/ conditioner from this line. I thought it would make my ends smooth but it made my ends feel sticky. When I run my hands through my hair it feels like there's a residue that's still on my hair. I'm still in search of a good leave in conditioner for fine damage hair. So far the only one that works for my hair is the It's a 10. But I think my hair is used to the product now so I have to find something else that will do better without weighing down my hair.

augustmoonrae from undisclosed
I have frizzy, course, dry hair and this stuff is amazing. It makes my hair actually manageable and silky and shiny. I also love the shampoo and conditioner but don't even thing the mask/pre treatment is necessary.
kelseyc192 from undisclosed
This product was actually recommended to me by my hair stylist because I was starting to bleach a lot of my hair. This saved me from a lot of damage and revitalized my hair after bleaching. I love the texture and how it is not sticky when applying, it's my go-to.
conniey3 from undisclosed
I had really damage hair after lifting it at the salon. Therefore i had a lot of damage control to do, I've used olaplex, amika & k18. All are great but this is one of the best products I have used and its reasonably priced.
