 Redken Conditioning Treatments

 [maxbutton id=”2″]

Although summer is winding down, there are still plenty of warm days left to enjoy. Whether you’ve spent time in the pool, at the beach, or simply under the blazing sun, your hair has probably taken a beating.

Before fall starts, and a whole set of new hair issues arrive, it might be time to get #RedkenReady by giving your hair some extra TLC. To help me accomplish this, Redken kindly sent me a trio of their conditioning treatments to try out on my own hair, including One United All-in-One Multi-Benefit Treatment, $22, Extreme Anti-Snap Leave-In Fortifier, $18, and Color Extend Rich Recovery Protective Treatment, $18.

Redken One United All-in-One Multi-Benefit Treatment, $22, 5.0 oz.

Redken One United 

This award-winning treatment delivers 25 benefits to increase your hair’s manageability, protection, and beauty. These benefits range from strengthening and reducing dryness, heat damage, and split ends to controlling frizz and adding shine.

It can be used alone, with a rinse-out treatment, leave-in treatment, or styling product. This one of my favorite features of One United. I like products that work well with others and can be layered without weighing my hair down or making it look oily.

I tried One United out numerous times in different manners. First as a conditioner after shampooing. (Using a spray bottle in the shower does take a little getting used to, but the results are worth it.) Secondly, as a leave-in conditioner on its own, and finally paired with other leave-in treatments and styling products. Each time my hair felt and looked amazing, even on the second and third day.

Extreme Anti-Snap Leave-In Fortifier, $18, 8.0 oz.

Redken Extreme Anti-Snap 

Upon first glance of the Extreme Anti-Snap, I wasn’t really sure if it would do anything for my hair. Luckily, my hair isn’t damaged and I don’t have split ends. I take extra care of my hair, mostly due to all I put it through when I was younger. But after doing a little research on the Extreme Anti-Snap, I knew I had to add this award-winning, best-selling leave-in treatment to my haircare regimen.

The Extreme Anti-Snap Leave-In Fortifier helps to strengthen and protect hair. It reduces breakage by 75%(especially when used with the Extreme Shampoo and Conditioner), fortifies and smooths the cuticle to reduce breakage and split ends, and provides 5 in 1 protection against damage caused by chemicals, heat, mechanical, and surface, as well as hair breakage.

While you can use this all over your hair, I chose to focus on the ends of my hair, where I want to prevent breakage and split ends. Whether I used it alone or in conjunction with other products, like the One United, the Extreme Anti-Snap performed wonders for my hair. It didn’t weight it down or make it feel greasy. I also noticed I didn’t have as much fallout or shedding as I sometimes do. My hair looked shiny and felt stronger, which is probably thanks to the Fortifying Complex of 18-MEA, ceramide, and interlock protein network. These ingredients work together to penetrate deep into the hair to help it stay healthy and resilient.

Redken Color Extend Rich Recovery Protective Treatment, $18, 8.5 oz.

Redken Color Extend 

If you have color treated hair you know how important it is to take extra care of it. Otherwise, your color can fade and your hair can feel dry and unmanageable. The Color Extend Treatment works like a mask to prevent color fade, protect against UVA/UVB rays, and restore your color to its radiant and shiny state.

I color my hair on a fairly regular basis, meaning whenever I start to see those grays popping out again. To protect my hair, I try not to over wash it.  I also try to use some type of conditioning treatment on it as least once a week. I typically like treatments I can wear while I’m in the shower, which is why I had some issues with the Color Extend Treatment.

The instructions require you to apply it to towel-dried hair after shampooing. After combing it through your hair, you leave it on for 5-15 minutes before rinsing it out. For me, that doesn’t work. I don’t want to have to get out of the shower, towel-dry my hair, and then wait up to 15 minutes to rinse it out. I prefer to use products that allow me to stay in the shower the entire time. The idea of getting all wet and then having to get out dry off and try to stay warm while I towel dry my hair and wait to get back in the shower feels like a giant waste time and a huge waste of water.

Though I did try the Color Extend a few times, following the directions, I felt like the product was a little too heavy for my hair. My hair felt weighed down and oily on day 2, so much so that I felt the need to wash it more.

Overall: If you’re looking to nourish your hair in the remaining days of summer or all year long, I highly recommend checking out Redken’s One United All-in-One Multi-Benefit Treatment, $22, Extreme Anti-Snap Leave-In Fortifier, $18, and Color Extend Rich Recovery Protective Treatment, $18. Though the Color Extend wasn’t my favorite, for mostly personal preference reasons, all three treatments deliver amazing TLC benefits to protect against all put out hair through.
