Review: I spend a lot of money (and a lot of time) at the hairdresser approx every 3 months, so I will do what I can to preserve the colour and look after my hair, so I was excited to try the Redken Colour Extend Shampoo. When I started using this, I had only just had my hair coloured, and usually within the first couple of washes it fades a lot, and you can see the colour running off when you wash and rinse your hair. After being coloured, my hair usually also feels a little dry for a couple of days before it settles into normal again. From the first wash with this shampoo, I felt that it enhanced the colour of my hair, and made it easy to comb, and leaving it nice and shiny. The shampoo has a creamy consistency with a fruity scent , which reminds me a bit about cherries,
but still it is pleasant and not overbearing, but it is so concentrated and only a little is required –
even in my very long and thick hair, and it froths with ease. At $27 for a 300ml bottle, it is not the
cheapest shampoo, but as it is so concentrated, and as just one wash makes the hair feel completely
clean, with no need to wash a second time, a bottle will last you a very long time. It rinses out very
easily and afterwards the hair feels nice and soft and is so easy to comb. Once dry, my hair was looking healthy and incredibly shiny, with a lovely subtle scent, and I felt that my normal frizz was dramatically reduced. Although the formula contains parabens and other undesirable cosmetic chemicals, the shampoo is thoroughly nourishing the hair, while maintaining hair colour and making the hair easy to manage. And in the short time that I have been using it, I am convinced that it is not only helping to maintain and enhance the colour of my hair, it is also improving the health and appearance of my hair. I really love this shampoo, and that it has the added of a UV filter in it, offering protection against the harsh sunlight that can also cause damage to our hair. This is seriously one of the best shampoos that I have ever used, so I’d highly recommend this
shampoo to anybody with colour treated hair. I would rate it 4.5/5 stars.
