I've always been a firm believer in the fact that a shampoo is a shampoo - it cleans and that's it. I never noticed a real difference whatever shampoo you use as it's the conditioner that makes the real impact on your hair shaft. Generally speaking you can use any old shampoo as long as you use a fairly decent and tailored conditioner to really treat your problem areas. Saying this, I have to totally eat my words as I've been using a shampoo for the past few weeks that has totally changed my perception of cleaning hair. Redken's All Soft shampoo has revolutionised my hair routine by making a real fundamental difference to the condition of my barnet.
I suffer from dry, frizzy, coarse and unmanageable hair that takes a lot of treating and styling to get it looking effortlessly 'I totally woke up like this'. It's been the bane of my beauty routine ever since I realised it wasn't cool to walk around with a mid-afro atop my head. I have to religiously use serums, moisture treatments and finishing sprays to get it looking decent, but since I've been using Redken's All Soft my hair has been much more manageable and soft - a swishy delight if you will. The formula is really concentrated so you need a 10p sized amount to get a great lather going, repeating twice to get your hair squeaky clean. Normally after shampooing my hair is a bit tangled and doesn't feel great, but with this it feels conditioned before I even put the conditioner on!
The formula contains a unique silk-luxe complex, to make hair shiny and smooth from within, which contains:
- Gold Camelina = adds luminous and luxurious shine to the surface of hair
- Avocado Oil = provides replenishment and intense silky softness
- Olive Oil = conditions for inside-out, incredible suppleness
- Silk Amino Acid = helps provide strength and compensates for loss of protein.
After using this shampoo my hair really is much softer, more manageable, easier to blow dry, keeps its style longer and is generally a wonder product for brittle, dry hair. I never expected to get a result like this without piling on silicone and getting horrid build-up, but I'm utterly delighted with the results. I rarely say I would repeat by a product, but this will be on my shelf for years to come.
