REDKEN CLEANSING CREAM – A REVIEW

Redken_Cleansing_Cream_01

Along regular shampoos that we use every other day, there are some shampoos that are specialized for a certain purpose. Redken offers a cleansing shampoo or rather hair cleansing cream as they call it, that claims to remove all product build up from your scalp that might pile up after weeks of using silicone filled products. Some ingredients like some silicones are not water soluble, and Redken claims that you need this cleansing shampoo to remove them along hard water minerals and copper or iron. The secret ingredients are fruit acids.

The 300 ml large bottle is available for about €16 on feelunique.com and many other beauty supply websites. Because it is recommended for weekly or even monthly use, the bottle should last you a long time. I’ve had this for way over a year and I’m just now half way through. I don’t remember to use it as often as it is recommended because I store products that I don’t frequently use in a cupboard out of sight. Redken labels this cleansing cream as safe for color-treated hair, an important trait to many.

The shampoo comes out as a very thick cream, a texture that I haven’t encountered before. A somewhat fake but not overpowering citrus smell is released when you begin to lather the shampoo, and boooy, does this lather up well! For this reason, I often don’t feel the need to shampoo a second time. I have recently stopped using shampoos containing sulfates as they seem to aggravate my scalp, so using this is a strong change compared to my usual hair care routine. While I do notice that using this shampoo every once in a while leaves my hair super duper shiny, I don’t feel like I couldn’t live with this product. Then again, I don’t dislike it enough to never use it again. One could say that I’m indifferent about it. My opinion on silicones isn’t really set in stone. The shampoos that contain silicones also contain sulfates, so ?logically? the sulfates wash out the silicones immediately, they must cancel each other out somehow. Right? Since I never resolved this confusion, I use this shampoo to use it up and won’t be repurchasing it afterwards. What are your feelings about deep cleansing shampoos? Do you own one and how often do you use it? Could you go without it?

    hello! I have never used shampoos for deep cleansing, but once a month i use baking soda mixed with some clear shampoo for washing my hair and it feels amazing! My hair starts to breath after washing with soda! Try it :)

    My opinion on silicones is also not set in stone. Sure, nothing is good used excessively, but I don’t think that the amount of silicones in beauty products can cause that much harm? Maybe? I could be wrong.
    As for products such as this one, I’ve never used it.. Somehow I have a feeling it’s all a marketing trick just to sell a certain product. :D

    Hej draga :),

    Ne znam da li je došlo do male zabune, ali koliko znam ovaj šampon sadrži sulfate (Sodium Laureth Sulfate), ono što ne treba da sadrži su silikoni. Čitala sam već o Redken šampončetu i svi ga hvale. Htela sam nekoliko puta da ga naručim i uvek se predomislim u poslednjem trenutku, jer obični jeftini šamponi (oni litarski) imaju negde isti efekat (operu sve nataložene silikone).

    Koji šamponi ti prijaju? Kojih brendova?

  • Nisam ja rekla da je ovaj bez sulfata već da inače koristim šampone bez sulfata, a onda jednom u 2 tjedna ili jednom u mjesec dana uzmem ovaj da ga potrošim. :D Trenutačno radim Curly Girl method jer kosu više ne ravnam, pa za to koristim samo regenerator. Ima jako malo šampona koji uz nedostatak sulfata imaju dobre sastojke, većina ih nadoknadi s alkoholima i silikonima pa sam već izmorena od traženja. Oni koji su stvarno prirodni mi nisu dostupni ili uz poštarinu dođu po 30 eura za jednu bocu. :(

    Već dugo koristim šampone bez sulfata i slikona, najbolji su mi se pokazali Nature’s Gate. Naručujem ih s iHerb-a. Svako toliko dubinski operem kosu tako da pomiješam žlicu sode bikarbone s malo šampona i vode te s tom mješavinom operem. Treba dobro nahraniti kosu nakon jer soda isuši. Ulja su mi neizbježna u njezi kose; kokosovo, ricinusovo, avokadovo, sjemenke grožđa. I moj najdraži tretman za kosu, maska od amle i cassie. Naručujem ih s ebaya, ne utječu na boju kose niti na bojanje. Kosa mi se preporodila, sad je normalna, a znala je biti masna do te mjere da sam slobdono dvaput dnevno mogla prati kosu. Ne pucaju mi vrhovi i sjajna je. I meni najdraže od svega je to da se super brzo oporavi nakon mučenja blajhovima i farbama (jako sam prevtrljiva glede boje kose). :)

  • I ja se osjecam slicno u vezi ovog sampona – ne nuzno iz istih razloga posto vidim da si ti vise vodila dilemu oko sulfata itd. (ne da mi je nebitno njihovo prisustvo) no ono zbog cega licno necu ponoviti kupovinu ovog sampona je ta neobicna cinjenica da mi “spljosti” kosu pri tjemenu a krajevi kose se naelektrisu i razlete na sve strane. Nije najgori sampon koji sam isprobala no svakako da ne spada medju one kojima cu se vratiti. Pozdrav draga iz Sarajeva! :)

  • Meni kosa bude dosta sjajna od njega, ali mi nije tako neki wow efekt da bi ga kupovala iznova i iznova, a sulfati mi rasture tjeme, katastrofalno mi izgleda nakon pranja.
