Redken Scalp Relief Oil Detox Shampoo is formulated with their exclusive Interbond Scalp System and Lipa-Sponge System which delivers lipacide, micro-sponges and lemon extract to equalise the scalps PH, help control excess oil, and clarify impurities. It has an RRP of around £14, but it's currently priced at £9.90 on lookfantastic.com.
The packaging is very plain and clinical looking. It looks like I would expect a medicated shampoo like anti-dandruff shampoos to look, nothing fancy, purely functional. It has a flip top lid for convenience.
The shampoo is quite thick in consistency and is an opaque creamy brown colour. I've never noticed a scent while I'm using it. It doesn't really lather much and has a thick creamy consistency that more rubs into the hair than lathers. It rinses out easily and leaves my hair feeling really clean and my scalp feeling very fresh.
The first couple of times I used this I was very impressed with the results and was very hopeful that it would live up to the reviews I'd read where people had said they were able to go days longer without washing their hair. My hair felt really light and airy and my scalp felt so clean. My hair was soft and smooth, and although it felt really light it didn't have the overly 'fluffy' feel that my very fine hair usually takes on when it's made 'softer'.
Sadly it didn't live up to the promise and within a few uses I found my hair was actually becoming greasy even quicker than usual, which is the opposite of what the shampoo is supposed to do. Not wanting to waste such an expensive product I now use it once or twice a week before my normal shampoo just to keep my scalp feeling fresher.
No, I would not recommend this shampoo as, for me, it had the opposite effect it claimed to have and actually made my more greasy more quickly.
