WHAT IS IT?
A conditioner for very dry hair by Redken. The main claim it makes is to smooth down frizzy or heat damaged hair for a sleek appearance.
HOW DO YOU USE IT?
Shampoo your hair as normal and wring out excess water the apply the Redken Smooth Down conditioner and massage through your hair all the way to the tips. Rinse thoroughly with lots of clear water.
IS IT ANY GOOD?
Yes and no. It's a very effective conditioner and smells divine but it's far too heavy for regular use and doesn't smooth down my hair as well as I thought it would. I heat style my hair daily and that has left me with a lot of split ends, I had hoped this conditioner would be able to help stop this problem without me needing to use extra styling products to combat it.
The conditioner is very thick and creamy and sticks to my hair while I'm using it, it takes a long time to rinse off and can leave a thick chalky residue if you don't spend enough time rinsing. This has happened to me and now I always make sure I rinse properly every time because the residue can look a lot like dandruff.
After conditioning my hair it feels silky and detangled, the smoothness promised isn't as good as I hoped for and definitely not worth the regular price of £10 because it is only a very effective conditioner and doesn't live up to the claims made on the bottle. I like the nourishment it provides and how strong my hair feels after using it but it weights my hair down too much and leaves it looking and feeling much limper than if I use other equally intensive conditioners.
