Redken is a brand I've always lusted after but never bought just because when it comes to hair products I don't like to spend over the odds. However, I recently received this shampoo as a gift from a friend. The RRP is apparently £12.50 for a 300ml bottle.
The shampoo comes in a tall yellow bottle (the picture above is not even a Redken product so I don't know why they have it there) that's almost kind of diamond shaped when looking at it from the front. It has a flip top lid that makes it easy and convenient to use, but I did find once I'd used a lot of the shampoo it took a while to get any out of the bottle.
The consistency is quite thick and to be honest it worried me a little when I first used it as this type of consistency usually results in my hair looking greasy and lank, but you gotta give everything a fair trial. The scent is nice, fresh and slightly floral, not overpowering but definitely chemical and not natural.
It doesn't lather as quickly as other shampoos I use but once it does it gives a thick, rich lather that is really easy to massage through my hair. It rinses out fairly easily and leave my hair and scalp feeling clean and fresh.
Once my hair is dry after using this I find my hair (which is naturally blonde with a few highlights) looks a fair bit brighter and fresher than usual. It really does seem to bring out the best tones in my hair and it looks really shiny too. It seems to be a very moisturising shampoo as it leaves my hair looking very sleek and smooth, but not greasy or lank.
Sadly I do find the clean feeling starts to wear off pretty quickly and my hair does get greasy quicker than usual, which is what I normally experience with moisturising shampoos, so comes as no real surprise to me.
All in all I do think this is a good shampoo, but just be careful if you have fine or greasy hair, as it might make it worse.
