I’m attempting the infamous wavy bantu knots tonight. I’ll be so mad if they don’t look okay!! Well, not really, I’ll just throw it in a puff!! I still have a quarter jar of Curly Meringue that I am trying to get rid of, so I decided to use it tonight! After my co-wash, I used my glycerin/water mix, Redken Anti-Snap, a bit of Shea butter and the Curly Meringue. I’m hoping that it will come out more wavy than frizzy. I probably should have made them smaller, I’m sure they would have looked better that way. We’ll see in the morning….
This is the (other) collection we’ve been waiting on. With hair like ours, we need all the moisture that we can get. “Real Control nourishes, restores and reclaims control of dense, dry, sensitized hair. This versatile, comprehensive range enables you to customize a haircare regimen that provides the right amount of moisture, repair and control your hair needs. The ultra rich formulas restore hair for a sleek and sultry look with luscious shine.” I trust Redken as a brand, and I know that nothing that they have created has failed me yet. Since using Real Control and Extreme product lines, my hair is thriving. They say this line is perfect for sensitized hair…in a nut shell… relaxed, natural and texturized hair!!! There is a shampoo and conditioner, as well as a few other highlights…
Intense Renewal Masque-Ultra rich, decadent, conditioning cream deeply moisturizes, controls and repairs extremely dense, dry hair. It instantly detangles and drastically improves combability to help prevent breakage. It also delivers
ultimate discipline and total texture transformation to the most difficult of hair. My hair lets out a huge sigh of relief every single time I use this. If you decide to try anything from this line, this is the must have!!! This has become the deep conditioner that I use the most, and I LOVE it sooooo much!
Thermal Mist-Lightweight, leave-in spray repairs, detangles and refreshes heat-damaged hair. This versatile product can be used alone to soften coarse hair or layered with Crema Care to tame and provide intense volume down control. Hair looks and feels strong, healthy and revived. I love the fact that is somehow treats the hair internally, which Redken calls the highest level of repair in this collection. I spray this on my hair immediately after I wash and condition, then I apply Anti-Snap.
Chemistry System Real Control Shot-Professional in-salon treatment is the first step towards
perfectly repaired and controlled hair. It repairs damaged areas of the cuticle to instantly transform very dense, dry, sensitized hair. Dry, sensitized locks are deeply nourished and reinforced, leaving hair smooth, manageable and strong. This is a salon exclusive, check out Redken Salon’s for this!
These products will be available in June…check out Redken.com for the official info!!
I am SO ready to kick damaged hair in the booty! I have recently stumbled upon the Redken Extreme line, which will now be a constant part of my new regimen. As you may remember, I was a big fan of Aveda Damage Remedy. I ran out of most of the products, so I opted to try something new. “Chemical services, overuse of heat styling tools, and overexposure to the elements can all cause damage to hair, even to those blessed with great hair. Extreme helps to repair, fortify and protect from further damage.” Sounds like music to my ears.
Here’s the lineup..
Extreme shampoo: Formulated to treat weak and damaged hair with special care. It cleanses thoroughly yet gently to shield hair from additional stress.
Extreme conditioner: This unique conditioner has a special pH balance to restore damaged hair’s natural acidity for further protection, and it eliminates tangles and adds shine. Extreme Rescue Force fortifying treatment: Restores the correct balance of moisture to protein as it fortifies, reduces breakage and moisture loss, and adds resilience and great shine.
Anti-Snap Leave-In Treatment–A protein enriched leave-in treatment that fortifies damaged areas of hair while helping to prevent further deterioration or breakage.
Extreme Anti-Snap helps to combat wear and tear caused by chemical treatments, heat styling, and even the friction of brushing.
Extreme Deep Fuel Durable Strengthening Treatment-Chemical services, heat styling tools, and overexposure to the elements can all cause damage to hair, even to those blessed with great hair.
Extreme Deep Fuel contains Redken’s exclusive Interbond Conditioning System, which delivers a unique 3D Repair Complex of proteins, ceramides and lipids to help provide internal strength, cuticle re
I’ve been using these products for over a month now, and I can see a huge difference in my hair. It’s stronger, there is much less shedding. I’ve been rotating all of the products. If you go to Ulta, you can buy travel sizes (aka trial sizes) of any of the products. I actually get excited to wash and treat my hair because I can tell that these products are repairing my hair!
I JUST realized that my e-mail has been out of whack! I called tech support, and it’s finally all fixed. So, if you have been trying to contact me, everything is good now! Just in case you need it again, my address is Erin@ScandalousBeautyOnline.com
I have a billion (well, about 30) new posts on the way, so don’t forget to check back to see what’s new!
I am Super excited to share my newest hair staple line, Redken Extreme. This has (sadly) taken the place of my beloved Aveda Damage Remedy. I’ve been using most of the products for a few weeks now, and I can feel my hair getting stronger. I don’t have nearly as much shedding as I used to. SO. IN. LOVE.
