Shop Redken


Paula Kent co-founded Redken Laboratories in 1960. As a young actress in the late 1950s, when hair was highly bleached and teased, Paula was challenged with baby fine hair and sensitive skin. On set in Hollywood, she constantly experienced allergic reactions to the products used by hairdressers and makeup artists. She visited dermatologists and hairdressers to find a solution, but no one could explain to her the science behind the products.

 

In a moment of inspiration, Paula realized that she could help millions of other people who needed gentle, high-performance products – and that professional hairdressers needed to know the chemistry of hair and skin, product ingredients and their relationship to beautiful, healthy hair.

 

Using $3,000 she earned from appearing in a beer commercial, Paula Kent and her hairdresser, Jheri Redding (forming the name "REDKEN") started Redken with three products and an intensive education program for hairdressers. The formulas were developed based on three principles:

 

  • Protein technology (since hair is composed primarily of protein)

  • An acidic pH of 4.5-5.5, complementing the natural pH of the hair and skin

  • Products recommended exclusively by licensed cosmetologists in professional salons

 

With this, Paula Kent revolutionized the professional haircare industry for both stylists and clients. Her pioneering spirit is cherished and she leaves behind a legacy that sustains the brand today.

Caramel brown hair

My blonde ends have since turned a nice caramel brown so thought I should make the switch from purple to blue shampoo. It was great and did a fab job at toning and removing red tones from my hair, however I haven’t seen much of a change with the chocolate brown parts of my hair. Good value for money- Massive bottle for a decent price.

Too heavy

I’ve been using the full Extreme Length range, Shampoo, conditioner and this treatment. As far as leave in treatments go I find this to be on the heavy side, you only need a tiny bit and it can definitely make your hair feel greasy if you use too much. I‘M not a fan of using this as I haven’t found it to have any benefits and it’s hard to get the application right so my hair doesn’t look greasy.

Honest review from someone who has thin long hair!

The shampoo and conditioner within this range was a complete fail for my thin long hair. At this point I didn’t have high hopes for this leave in treatment. It’s ok, but from all the damage both the shampoo and conditioner from this range did to my hair this barely could help. It gave it the slightest bit of hydration but nothing to save my hair from the birds nest it became after using the S+C.
