Brand Bests #7 - Redken Hair Care

August 17, 2010

When I was in Cosmetology school I experimented with so many different kinds of hair care products. I thought I would share a few products that have worked for me with the type of hair that I have. Keep in mind that my hair is long, thick, and wavy. These products work for me, and depending on how your own hair, they might not work for you.  Also I want to add this to my Brand Bests series because this post will be focused on Redken products. Redken formulates superior hair products and leads the professional salon industry with shampoos, conditioners, styling products and hair color. What are my favorites? Let's begin!

Redken Satinwear 02 Ultimate Blow-Dry Lotion
I don't usually blow dry my hair very often, but when I do I always use this. It helps to reduce friction and breakage when you blow-dry. It also protects your hair from any heat your going to be using on your hair.It's supposed to protect your hair color as well. I don't color my hair too often, so don't really see a difference there. Definitely does decrease the time I have to blow dry my hair which is good since I have the most thickest and longer hair on earth. Haha. Afterward, my hair feels softer and more manageable.

Redken UV Rescue Protective Oil
 I carry this with me every time I go to the beach. That's mainly when I use this too because it protects my hair from the sun and the outside environment around me I always have to use a little bit because it will make your hair oily if you use too much. Sadly this product is discontinued, but luckily I still have enough to last me for a while. 

Redken Vinyl Glam 02 Mega Shine Spray
This will leave your hair super shiny. And that's it. Whenever I'm going to straighten my hair, I use this once I'm finished styling. Just to give it a polished look and doesn't weigh down my hair.

Redken Fresh Curls Anti-Frizz Shiner
I use this one the most. When I air dry my hair and it tends to be really wavy, I use this to tame my mane. Haha. It smooths, refines, and helps block humidity in the air for all day control. I love the way it smells and is another product that doesn't weigh my hair down. It's just enough to keep my hair in tact.

Hope you enjoyed a different type of Brand Bests post! :)

Let me know in the comments if you want me to focus on a different hair care brand or even another makeup brand that I haven't focused on yet!
