Rated 4.43 out of 5 stars
After I wash my hair.
As others have said, this made my hair feel like straw. It made it feel very unhealthy! The gel itself is VERY sticky, and I definitely can't run my fingers through it like others have said. Plus, it smells like sunscreen. My hair does look more scrunched, but it's not worth it!

I use about a quarter size of the gel in palm of wet hands. Keep hands wet as you work it through your hair.

I'm so glad that I got Redken Max Sculpting Gel! It helps to provide all day control and shape memory for my naturally curly hair. Also, this gel has a nice, clean scent, and doesn't cause flaking, which is wonderful! It provides shine, and added thickness. I definitely recommend it!

The quality is better than LA Looks. Does not harden or leave white residues but keep shair in place on day.

I have fine curly/wavy hair and I need some hold to keep my curls lasting all day. This product did the trick! It makes my hair shiny and defined. It did make my hair slightly crunchy, but that is easily solved with scrunching the crunch out once it's dry.

It worked amazing and it didn't leave any of that dry goupy stuff in your hair after.

I liked the gel it holds my hair in place.

The Redken Max Sculpting Gel that I received to try out was just okay. It has a pleasant smell to it when you open up the cap. It did not flake as it advertised on the container. My feedback would be that it didn't really hold up as well as some other gels that I have tried. I'm not sure what the price point will be but I have tried cheaper gels that have worked better. It did last the whole day which was another plus. If it was just a little firmer of a hold I think it would be worth buying. My rating of a 3 out of 5 was simply because I would buy it if the price point was good. Hold and shaping was average.

My daughter gels her hair everyday. Unfortunately this gel flaked every time she used it.
Queenie from Seattle
It lasts all day and smells great. I recommend it for everyone who have fine and straight hair and it gives excellent results.

I used this on my wavy hair and wasn't impressed. It has a very thick constancy so it's difficult to get even coverage on all of your hair. It just stays on a glob at the top regardless of how much scrunching you do. I ended up with some pieces of hair looking wet and hard and others looking dry and frizzy. My hair felt crunchy and flaky by the end of the day. It's a decent product but definitely not worth the price.

Nothing special about this gel. It was the average results.

I have always been a fan of Redken products but this gel…is over the top. It offers a strong hold and lasts all day. I even let my son borrow it for pictures. We were both highly impressed!!

This sculpting gel from Redken is superb. A little goes a long way and it held my curls intact for days! It wasn't too thick at all and not overly sticky. Best of all, it didn't leave my hair looking hard and crunchy, but allowed my hair to retain a fresh clean look. I love it!
Rossy from Temecula
my hair is straight, i don't use a lot of gel, only when i need it. But my children do use it, they love it, their hairstyle lasts all day, it smells great, it's not sticky and it comes off easily. I recommend it for curly and straight hair, it gives excellent results.

I received the Redken Max sculpting gel in return for my honest review. The gel has a thick consistency with a yellow tint to it. I tried several styles with it and I would say it holds up for roughly about 6 hours. When first applied it has a nice wet shine look but shortly after a few hours the shine does fade and no longer looks sleek. It is also very sticky. It has minimal smell and does not flake which is impressive for a strong hold gel. If you are looking for a thick gel with a semi sleek look then give this a try. It will keep your hair in place for the most part just not with a sleek/wet look. It is a nice size bottle with a lot of product in it for the price.

I like using Redken sculpting gel whenever I want to leave my hair curly, I start with damp hair and apply gel and scrunching my hair. I like that you can control your hair with this gel. Not like other products that I tried that leaves your hair stiff. I also use it to slick my hair back into a ponytail or bun.
Bunny from NYC
I have super fine hair with fly-aways! I received this from BzzAgent and tried this for an event I was going to. I did a top knot bun and used a touch to slick back my front and neaten up my fly-aways. It worked great! It gave it some shine without looking greasy and did not get that straw-like look most gels give my hair. I love the smell too. The key is just using a touch with a spritz of water. Lasted all day.
Dani from Atl
This gel is no joke! It literally sculpts your hair to the max!! I woke up the next day with the same hairdo! If you're looking for strong hold gel, This is it!
KimmyS from NJ
I tried this gel on wet hair and then blow dried it to see how much hold it would provide. I have fine blonde hair, but using it before blow drying gave it hold, but I need to pull my round brush hard to get the product through the hair. I also tried it while my hair was wet for a slicked back use as suggested. I rubbed it in my hands and flipped my head over and scrunched my hair. It dried with a wet, wavy look that was not as crunchy as other gels I have used. Smelly was pleasant. If your sticking you hair back in a bun or sleek ponytail this works well at keeping fly aways at bay but it does dry shiny so your hair may look like it's dirty if it is a light color.

I was sent a bottle of Redken max Sculpting gel, and return for my honest feedback on the product. I hate in the winter time when I have lots of static in my find long hair. I decided to use this product to help with the static and help style my hair. I love how this product dried quickly and made my hair look wonderful, and ended up taking the static out of it at the same time. this product was also great to take my straight hair and make it curly for when I wanted to dress it up a little bit.
Chan from Hawaii
This gel works better than most that I've tried. It doesn't leave your hair feeling hard and crunchy, like some do. It holds both a slicked back bun and curls well. I will definitely be using this gel in my regular hair routine!
Brookie from Washington
Worked great for my fine curly hair. I used in on wet hair and then dried it with a diffuser. My curls were not crunchy or stiff - they were bouncy and frizz-free all day.
