Rated 4.43 out of 5 stars
I received this product for free from Redken for review purposes.
So… I should probably start off by saying I have extremely damaged hair. For reference, I bleached my hair about 8 months ago and did a keratin treatment about a year ago. I have fine hair and used to have more of a 2a kind of wave, but now my hair mostly looks like dry hay when air dried.
I didn't have high hopes for this product. I hoped that it would improve the texture and smoothness of my hair, but wasn't expecting too much. I have used this product for about 2 weeks now, and I would say this product has outdone my expectations. After the first use, I felt like my hair was going back to its regular shape of waves and was way smoother. I think this product gave me the damage repair that I had hoped to receive from some very famous "repairs bonds" kind of products, that just didn't seem to work for me.
The first time I used the product, I tried to follow the directions and squeezed out the water from my hair during my shower and applied liberally. I left it on for about 4.5 minutes (using a timer) and rinsed it out. My hair looked absolutely luscious after. The second time I used it, I was a little careless and didn't squeeze out the water from my hair. I would say my hair didn't look as good after the second use and I wasn't as wowed as when I used it the first time. And then subsequently I've been squeezing out the water from my hair and applying it liberally and leaving it on for the recommended time and have been impressed every time since.
I would definitely purchase this product and am absolutely amazed by how efficiently this has improved the texture and quality of my hair. Totally recommend and it's a BIG SIZE.
I was so excited to try the Redken Extreme Mask, as I tend to have a lot of split ends from using a flat iron. It goes on easily and feels like it coats well. Rinsing it out was a challenge, as it was so "slick", it was hard to tell when it was truly rinsed out. It took 5-6 rinses to get it all out. It seemed to smooth my hair really well - until it got to my split ends. It seemed to make them even more noticeable because the rest of my hair was smooth. Overall it would probably work well if you don't have damaged hair, but then the need wouldn't be there.

Love the smell and the way it leaves my hair feeling. Doesn't leave build up on scalp which is really important for me

As someone with dyed blonde hair, I can attest that my locks have been feeling a bit dry since my last salon visit for highlights. After trying out Redken Extreme Mask, I must say that my hair has significantly improved in just one use. The product has left my hair looking and feeling much healthier. This mask is a must-have and now I can't imagine being without it.
Don't forget to take a before shot — because the after will shock you!

I have been so impressed with the Redken Extreme Mega Mask. My hair has never been so soft and full of life. This hair mask is so easy to use, smells amazing and revitalizes my curly hair. My hair went from dull and dry to amazing! Definitely keeping this a part of my hair routine!
Ren from Florida
This product has a good scent and is definitely moisturizing, but I have used similar products that have helped improved the quality of my hair more. I did not notice any difference in the sheen of my hair.
Lee from New Orleans
I've been using this mask for month and have seen so much restoration in my hair.
Es from San Juan tx
I use the mask after I shampoo I love the feeling it leaves on my hair one thing about it is you don't need that much of it because if you use a lot will leave like a feeling after you take it off as if you still have it on so be cautious of the amount you use you don't need that much
Pwoje from Chicago
So I have thick naturally Curley hair that is pretty fragile especially during summer months in the pools. My hair tends to dry out a lot. This conditioning mask has really helped. My hair feels great. It has kept it soft and healthy. It doesn't have much of a scent which honestly is nice. And it has left my hair soft, manageable and my curls look great. I definitely recommend using this product

I have been using the beach waver a lot lately because I can't bother to wash my hair every day, so my hair has sustained some damage. I've used this extreme mask twice now and my hair is recovering. It feels silky and looks so much shinier. It makes me feel less guilty about using hot tools.
LibbyJ from NYC
Really liked using this extreme hair mask. I used it after my usual shampoo and saw noticeable improvement in just one use. After using this product for a couple of weeks I find my hair more manageable, shiny and revitalized. It doesn't look or feel damaged or dry. I look forward to seeing additional improvement with continued use.
Sandy from Ny
I love this so much. I found the most perfect hair product for me at least. Leaves my hair shiny and so soft. No greasiness and I would recommend
Mandarina from Berwyn, IL
I used the product for two weeks. I didn't use the Redken shampoo prior to applying the mask; I used my regular shampoo. I like that the mask is lightweight and a little goes a long way. There really isn't a scent to it…that is something I always look for in a product. My haír was very soft and felt very lightweight after using this product. It was also shiny. There was no frizz and my curls held up. If the product had a nice scent to it, I think I would purchase it and continue using it.

This product has actually made my hair frizz-free and strong.
My hair fall has significantly reduced and it gives a bouncy feel
Nikiii from Seattle
Had low expectations but i was blown away. Left my brittle hair feeling so much softer than normal, especially since i moved to a city with hard water. I feel like a little goes a long way and this is going to last me a long time!
Mel from Ventura
I recieved this product for free from Bzzagent and Redken in exchange for an honest review. Overall I liked this. It did make my hair feel a little stiff, but it smells great and it's nice and thick. Great texture. If you have Hair that's not super dry this will probably work great. I just didn't feel like it made my hair feel as moisturized as other conditioners though my hair does run dry.
Traycb from Muskego Wisconsin
It's just okay, I wasn't too impressed to be honest. It worked just as well as the Dove Conditioner I normally use. I didn't notice and difference in my hair. I guess I expected more from a salon brand. Maybe it works better with the shampoo

I tried the Redken extreme mask and found it worked wonders on my hair. I have fine straight hair that can get a little dry. I used this mask to help hydrate my hair and afterwards it feels so smooth and soft. I appreciate the bottle is a squeeze tube style, making it easy to get the product out and get the appropriate amount. Will definitely use this product again and suggest it for anyone wanting to add hydration
Katie from Detroit, MI
I recently bleached the heck out of my hair to color it bright pink so needless to say, it's a little dry. This mask has been great! Nothing is going to fully do the trick, but this certainly has helped it be less of a tangly mess after showers. It smells good which is important for some of us. It's not watery and not too thick that it doesn't spread. I received the product for free in exchange for writing the review but will continue using it!
Tatiana from Queens NY
This product leaves my hair feeling less stringy after using. It's a tad too thick to work with the tube design but the overall effect of the product left me feeling satisfied and i will definitey be buying again.
Britt from Orlando, Fl
although I used it along alone and not with the shampoo it recommends to use, I can say I noticed a difference after two washes. (I typically wash my hair every two days) The smell is pleasant. It does weigh my curls down so I think I may use a little less next time I use.
Chels from Miami, FL
Really saw a transformation of my hair after using this mask 2x times
Ksam from MN
I love this product! I noticed a difference after just one use. The fragrance is nice and not overpowering. You only need a small amount to provide results. I felt that it left my hair feeling healthier and smooth. I can't wait to see what it does for my hair after continued use. I would definitely recommend.

Spanger from Boston, MA
I recently have removed my braids and my hair has been in protective styles for the past few months. My hair was in need of moisture, and I have naturally dry low porosity hair. The red Ken mask made a difference! I felt my curls come back to life and retention of moisture. Only problem I had with the mask was that it was too small. I basically used half the bottle in one wash.
Kels from New York, NY
My hair is dry and damaged since my hair has been through several bleaching overtime. This product moisturized my hair and made my hair so smooth after I'm done showering. Would definitely recommend trying this out!
