Most Helpful Positive Review Absolutely
I love this product because it helps the blow dryer from frying / ftizzing ends, gives you some volume/lift and control for styling you hair. It's not sticky or stiff, very lightweight and can be added at the end if you are a product junkie. Also gives your hair a healthy shine.
Most Helpful Critical Review Nope. Not for me.
After reading all the wonderful reviews about this product, I was excited to try it. It sounded custom made for hair type/needs -- fine, flyaway, in need of body & bounce, volumizing, etc. It did make my hair very soft...actually too soft, I think. Also, several people commented on how much they liked the scent. I am completely perplexed...it smells extremely masculine to me! Don't get me wrong, I love fresh herbal and/or minty scents as much as anyone (e.g., Aveda products), but this smelled flat-out like men's cologne. It's almost a juniper type scent? It's described as a "green citrus," but I don't detect those notes at all. I should mention it's a GOOD smell, but it's quite strong and NOT what I want in my hair (and I'm not a person who's sensitive to smells) I used this product once and returned to Ulta.

This has been a godsend. My hair constantly likes to flip outward at the ends, to where I look like the Wendy's logo without the bows, but now I use this on my hair in the morning just before blow drying, when it's still wet, and it keeps a nice inward curl to the ends all day (and sometimes even into the next day if I don't get it wet). It takes about 10 minutes total, leaves my hair looking professionally done, and it doesn't weigh it down or make it stiff. You can barely even tell it's there. Fan for life!
great, but drying after long term use
Nina from Seattle
First of all, it smells like it contains eucalyptus or tea tree oil. It smells perfectly fine. It makes your hair and scalp feel minty and will give you a great hair day with seemingly thicker and well behaved hair. It also will cut down on your drying time. The only downside for me us that it dries my hair out if I use it too often, like every Redken product I use does.
Works and smells great
Cate from MN
I always apply this on wet hair then brush through. I then reapply smaller amounts on sectioned hair right before blow drying each section. Worked great with Revlon styler but not so great yet with Dyson styler.
Shelly from St Louis Mo
Great hair gel. I've tried many hair gels, I've stuck with this one for years. It's not sticky, makes my hair feel soft, blends in well, and has a very pleasant smell.
Love this product! I have been using it for 10 years!

Great for volume
Fairfiled 54 from Florida
Love this product. It helps add volume to my baby fine hair and helps hair dry faster. It is easy to apply. Just a little in your palm, rub your hands together and then run your hands through your wet hair, comb and dry you hair. Easy peazy!
I love this gel!
Franny from Downingtown PA

Grandma from Monroe, NY
My Master Designer, Christine, at the Ulta Salon in Central Valley, New York introduced me to the Redken hair products. I am very pleased with how easy it is to work with these hair products. With a minimum amount of fuss my hair looks and stays as I want it to.
Thank you Christine and Redken❤️
Works well, but I don't care for the fragrance
Teri from VA
The product works very well when blowing drying your hair. It helps with heat protection and leaves your hair feeling natural, not stiff. The only downside to this product is the smell. It seems to have a rather strong fragrance of a man's cologne. If I had smelled it before buying it, I probably would not have bought it. I think I will end up giving it to my husband to use and I will just look for another product.
I would buy this product again!
Judy from Boynton Beach, FL
I use this product after washing my hair before I dry it with a hair dryer.
My hair doesn't frizz and I can style it.
This is what I was looking for 🤗.

Friendly and helpful atmosphere
Velvet Gel 07
LuS from Appleton, WI
I add a small amount of gel to my hair after a shower. My hair blow dries nicely and I'm able to shape my hair with a round brush, easily. I had to order online, because there was no more available at the Ulta store I shop at. Please don't tell me it is being discontinued. I tried other products when I couldn't get it and didn't get the same results.
My Go-To for About a Year
Veronica411 from Illinois
My hair is not thick, or thin, and not curley, but not straight. It's just wavy enough to be annoying and frizzy. My hair dresser first used this on my hair about a year ago, and it left it so smooth and shiny that I never stopped using it.
I will buy this product again and again!
Mama Lisa from Leesburg, GA
I use this product prior to blow-drying for a smoother look. I can definitely tell a difference when I don't use it.
Annie from Elysian, Mn
Love the product. I don't use anything else unless I can't get to Ulta yo purchase more
Nana of 4 from Loveland, Ohio
Can build up on hair. Use a small pea size amount and work through damp hair. Smoothes flyaways, adds volume and softness. Hair does feel like velvet.
I would buy this product ocer and over again.
Powershopper from Helena, Ohio
My hairdresser recently used this along with another brand product. I use very little like a dime size amount. Rub product in hands and put in wet hair. I love it I think it works great. And if you dont wash your hair everyday I think it makes my hair look better on second and third day. Great for humidity.

I use this product regularly
I really like this product. Just dont use to much.
Neicy from Daphne, al
Just add a small amt to towel dried hair. Not to much or itll make your hair feel heavy.
Not what I was hoping
BJ from Michigan
I hoped this product would be comparable to Duo-Shield 07 that was discontinued. It isn't.
I have short, straight hair. This product does not have much holding power. After an hour, it's like I never used a product. Disappointed ... wish they would bring Duo-Shield 07 back.
An absolute favorite!
Julie from Vancouver, WA
I have short, fine, thick hair and I'm allergic to many product but, this one works perfectly for me. It's fast and easy to use and my hair always looks great.
I would but this product

I have been searching for a production like this for years! I am amazed to finally find a product that makes my damaged hair shiny and soft, without making it look flat and oily! Thank you!!!
I used it one time and didn't like the smell of the product.
JERRY from Dallas, TX
I USED IT ONE TIME AND DIDN'T CARE FOR THE SMELL
