I have never posted a review about a product before, but this treatment so was good I just had to do it. I had a bad experience at the hairdressers, I asked for blonde highlights in my brown hair, but got a head full of white stringy mess which has been falling out for the past 3 months even though I have gone back to my original colour. I have tried everything going, and this is the only treatment which has prevented breakage, and has made my hair feel thick and healthy again!!
One good thing about it is it definitely made my hair feel nice after use. I think it probably is a good idea to rescue some weakened hair for sure.
Now for the not so good things.... You have to literally dry your hands mid shower and apply this with it being a spray.... Its impossible to apply by putting onto hands as it's just watery. The smell is like ok but nothing fantastic and it doesn't go far at all... I personally recommend the extreme protein treatment to use after washing instead... Which I think is brill and so much easier to use than this. (Sorry redken I love you)
I had a personal recommendation for this product from my hairdresser, who told me it was an amazing product and would save my hair from breakages because it is heavily highlighted. I also read the reviews on here and thought, OK, it's definitely worth a try.
I'm not sure whether I used it right first time. But I followed the instructions to the letter, so not sure why I can't have done... The instructions say "After shampooing, squeeze excess water from hair. Apply CAT and distribute through hair. Leave on 3-5 minutes. Rinse."
I did this, but it was really hard to distribute through my hair because it felt like straw without a conditioner. I left it on for 5 minutes and rinsed. Putting a comb or brush through my hair was almost impossible. It was like tangley straw. Trying to blow dry my hair and style it was again almost impossible because it was so hard to keep my brush through my hair because it was so dry feeling and tangled! Why can't you use conditioner? My hair is now dried, but not styled like it usually does. My hair looks dry and split-ended like fine straw?
It also doesn't leave your hair smelling yummy like a nice conditioner, it smells like chemicals or perming solution almost.
I'm not very impressed with this product for the price, unless someone can tell me where I'm going wrong! I would never, ever buy this again and would stick to my argan and coconut oils, which also smell delicious. I waste of money in my opinion.
I ordered this product by mistake (as I actually meant to order redken anti-snap) however, I already use this product at home and it has really helped to get my hair back into a good condition after intense bleaching and bleach overlapping.
As I ordered by mistake I requested to return it and receive a refund. The seller was very quick to respond and very efficient with return details.
I use Redken shampoos and conditioners as I find them really good for my fine , bleached hair . After deciding to try this I can honestly say I absolutely love this product! I have used it after shampooing for the last 2 1/2 weeks and it has transformed my fine fragile hair . It is now feeling so much softer and stronger! For the first time ever , I may be able to grow my hair ! This will definitely be a repeat buy !
I've been a hairdresser for years and have used many reconstructor but this by far is one of the best I've ever used and I wish I'd given redken a try years ago. I use this once a week as a treatment and leave on for a good half hour to an hour. Much less breakage when blow drying and hair feels so much stronger after a few weeks use. I highly recommend the redken shampoo and conditioner too, the conditioner leaves a silk feeling on hair I've never felt before.
A tried a tested product for me, have been using for many years and it's great. I have wavy hair and some times I've used this instead of conditioner to give my hair a little break as it often feels heavy after using too much conditioner.
I use this to keep my hair healthy as I bleach it often. I found the best way is to shampoo, rinse, use this, leave in for a few minutes, rinse, apply conditioner and rinse again. Makes my hair lovely and soft.
