Discovering Redken: My Haircare Adventure

AD - Following products were gifted to ne for a review.

Every now and then, I like to shake things up and try new haircare products, even though I have my trusty favorites. Lately, I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about Redken, especially their acidic bonding collection. So, I decided to give it a shot and see what all the fuss is about.

I treated myself to a lovely haircare treat that included both the shampoo and conditioner (full sizes, no less!). Here’s how it went:

The Shampoo Experience

The Redken acidic bonding shampoo promises to strengthen and fortify your hair, making it a great choice for colored hair and even helping to prevent hair loss. Since I have very soft hair, I was a bit concerned that it might be too heavy. Thankfully, I was wrong!

This shampoo deeply cleanses my scalp without drying it out, and I can go several days without washing my hair. The formula is quite concentrated, so a little goes a long way. After using it for a month, my hair feels silkier, healthier, and surprisingly lighter. I’m thrilled with the results and will definitely add this to my list of go-to shampoos.

The Conditioner Conundrum

Now, onto the conditioner. It’s not bad, but it didn’t blow me away either. The formula is thick and heavy, yet it doesn’t feel like it nourishes my hair as much as I’d like. It does a good job detangling, but that’s about it.

If you have incredibly fine hair and find most conditioners too greasy, this might be a perfect match for you. Dyson Airwrap users will also appreciate that it doesn’t weigh your hair down. Personally, I prefer conditioners that provide more hydration and nourishment, but this one pairs nicely with a hair mask on those pampering days.

Final Thoughts

Overall, I’m quite impressed with Redken and totally get the hype around their shampoo. What about you? What’s your go-to shampoo or conditioner? Let me know – I’m always on the lookout for new recommendations!
