Everyone knows I’m a fan of Redken products, and their literally dizzying and extensive collections of shampoos, conditioners, and styling products that suit every type of hair and hair issue you can think of. But one collection takes a literal “sows ear” and turns it into a silky, soft, shiny “silk purse.” That collection, that particularly pampers parched hair, is Redken’s All Soft Renovation line. An exclusive, “silk-luxe complex” of silk amino acid (for strength and to compensate for the loss of protein in dry, damaged hair), plus olive oil to condition; avocado oil for softness; and gold camelina for a luminous, surface shine, work together to make distressed, dry hair look beautiful. There’s also the added, aromatherapy bonus of a pleasant, light honeyed-floral scent. The thing I really love is not just the shine, control and softness, but the fact that my hair won’t feel greasy and limp by the end of the day — just shiny and soft!
The line has recently added an All Soft Argan-6 multi-purpose oil to the collection that we reviewed last week. The oil can be used wet or dry for everything from a wet hair detangler than helps protect against heat stylers, to an overnight conditioner and a way to de-frizz and add shine. If you use the oil with the All Soft Shampoo and Conditioner, according to Redken you’ll have instantly softer hair with 15X more conditioning. While I can’t quantify how much extra conditioning you’ll get, I can tell you from personal experience that dry hair does get much softer and healthier looking. If you’re locks are lack-luster, All Soft will be a true treat!
The rest of the line includes equally impressive products that work particularly well in Winter conditions:
.All Soft Shampoo $11.50 10.1 oz and All Soft Conditioner $13.50 8.5 oz clean and condition gently and thoroughly, and give you that luxury haircare feeling.
There’s also All Soft Heavy Cream $14.95 8.5 oz–a five-minute deep conditioning cream that also controls frizz while it provides intense moisture. You’ll see the difference when you dry your hair. It’s really good!
All Soft Supple Touch $16.00 5 fl. oz. – it has a keratin enrich complex with argan oil for softness plus an interlock protein network that helps strengthen hair and protect it against future damage. This leave-in conditioner won’t make hair limp, and I like it!
Sadly, one of my favorite products, the All Soft Gold Glimmer Perfecting Shine Treatment is no longer in the All Soft Line, and the Velvet Whip Thermal Softening Treatment has been discontinued as well, but Redken has so many other great products on the market already, and about-to-be launched, that I can’t be too sad.
