My Experience with Redken Color Extend Shampoo:
This is the biggest size available and since it is so good I got the biggest size available. It’s a normal plastic bottle with a flip open cap. The small bottle might be good for travel, but not this one due to its bulky size. But, it’s sturdy and does its job well.
As I had mentioned earlier, my newly highlighted hair has been stripped off all shine and moisture and due to this, I have been taking extra care to make them look gorgeous and shiny. I have been using this shampoo for a month now along with Redken Color Extend Magnetics Deep Attraction Mask. The main reason I got this shampoo was for protecting and making my colored and damaged hair healthy and shiny again.
I had first used this shampoo when I went to the salon for a haircut and liked the results, so I ordered this. I have used it along with the similar conditioner, but somehow it dried up my hair a lot. I was confused if I was doing something wrong, but this shampoo didn’t work as well as I had expected and since then I have used it after a deep conditioning with oil and that seems to work. This shampoo is okayish, but not as great as I had expected at all. This does give my hair color a new life after the wash, but makes the hair a bit dry too, which of course if undesirable. Overall, I have mixed feelings for it!
Pros of Redken Color Extend Shampoo:
• Extends color life
• Nice smell
• Color looks good after each wash
• Works fine if I condition my hair with oil prior usage
Cons of Redken Color Extend Shampoo:
• Makes hair a bit dry
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Redken Color Extend Shampoo?
This is an average shampoo and can be replaced by a better one easily. I am not going to repurchase it after it finishes.
