As the first RedKen Director of Colour in '69 I was originally leary of RedKen after the demise of co-founder, friend and Forbes 8th most powerful woman in the world. L'Oréal does have quality products and has kept RedKen Fifth Avenue products up to my standards as I buy only RedKen the original when I may find and now I am very satisfied with Redken Fifth Avenue, thanx for a fine vendor, excellent packaging and rapid delivery.
My stylist (I love my stylist!!!!) told me about this product so I could keep my highlights from looking ash-y or grey. Love the dial-by-number feature which allows you to adjust the amount of "gold" toning so you can use less if you are fresh from the salon or more if your highlights have gotten tired looking. Very easy to use and will allow me to go longer between highlights. I have always liked and used Redken although now I am using some WEN products.
I first got this after my stylist recommended that I use a clarifying shampoo once to twice a week to balance my rather oily hair. She said that the Redken line was a great line to look into, and this shampoo would do the trick. From the minute I picked it up and just took a whiff of it I feel in love. It smells of vanilla citrus, quite like a Creamsicle which is one of my all time favorite guilty pleasures. Then when I used it after a particularly oily of a mess hair day, it cleansed my hair perfectly without leaving my hair completely stripped. An awesome thing about this shampoo, is that it says on the bottle that if you have really oily hair, you can leave it on for up to 10 minutes to help absorb the oil. I love that, and believe me it really does work. It also helps to condition the hair in it's own way, and works beautifully to remove product build up. It lathers up quite well, and with added water (never add more shampoo just because it's not lathering well...you're just wasting product) it really bubbles up fantastically to scrub dub dub your scalp to perfection. I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone in need of a deep cleansing clarifying shampoo!
