Redken Hair Cleansing Cream


I've been eyeing hair care for a few months and when I finally took the plunge – I was beyond excited! I finally dusted off some of my wishlist shelves and prepped them for the newbies while those who have stood there for years (quite literally) were on their way to my doorstep. Among those hair care goodies was the Redken Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo 300ml which I've purchased for £11.25 via feelunique.com. The packaging is a simple, white plastic 300ml bottle with a flip/top cap. It does its job, it's functional but it's no eye candy. Now, this isn't your regular shampoo which you could use daily or even 2-3x a week as it has clarifying properties. It clarifies and works to remove copper, iron, hard water minerals and styling product build-up. You should alternate it with your regular shampoo and for excessive build-up, leaving it on for 5-10 minutes as a treatment is recommended. Formulated with fruit acids to add shine, it purifies and refreshes the hair making it shinier. That is – in theory it does all these things. My hair is fine (it's thin but there's lot of it) and oily at the roots but over-washing makes it even oilier. It's not color-treated. Scalp isn't particularly sensitive but it does react to truly aggressive products and my hair ends are a bit dry and prone to frizziness. Since the Redken clarifying shampoo was suited for even color-treated hair, I figured it would be effective yet mild towards the hair. And I never had any issues with such type of shampoos before so I really expected it to be good. Unfortunately, I wasn't as impressed as I hoped for.

Drzala sam na oku odredjene proizvode za njegu kose vec duze vrijeme i kada sam se napokon odlucila da ulozim nesto novca u njih – bila sam vise nego uzbudjena! Napokon sam skinula prasinu sa imaginarnih polica svoje liste zelja, upravo kupovinom dugogodisnjih favorita tako napravivsi mjesta za neke nove debitante. Medju tim dugoocekivanim proizvodima za kosu je bio i Redken kremasti sampon za pranje kose  300ml koji sam kupila preko feelunique.com stranice za cca 30KM. Pakovanje je jednostavno jer se radi o plasticnoj boci bijele boje sa crnim cepom. Prakticno je i radi za sto je namijenjeno no nije posebno lijepo. Ovdje se ne radi o regularnom samponu za svakodnevno pranje kose te cak ne bih rekla da ga je pametno koristiti ni vise puta sedmicno zbog prilicno jakih prociscujucih svojstava. Sampon je namijenjen prociscenju kose tako sto uklanja bakar, zeljezo, minerale tvrde vode i nakupljene naslage proizvoda za stiliziranje kose. Koristi se naizmjenicno sa samponom koji inace koristite za pranje kose a ako smatrate da se u njoj nalazi narocito mnogo ostataka proizvoda za stilizovanje – preporuceno je ostaviti sampon 5-10 minuta kao tretman. Formulisan je sa vocnim kiselinama koje bi kosi pruzile dodatni sjaj i osjecaj cistoce. Tako bi barem trebalo biti u teoriji. Moja kosa je tanka (vlas je tanka a ima je mnogo), tjeme je masno no precesto pranje cini vise stete nego dobra a krajevi su suhi i skloni naelektrisanju ako koristim neadekvatne proizvode. Kosa mi nije ofarbana. Tjeme nije narocito osjetljivo ali reaguje na narocito agresivne sastojke. Posto je Redken procscujuci kremasti sampon namijenjen cak i ofarbanoj kosi, smatrala sam da bi trebao biti efektan ali i njezan spram kose. Takodjer, nikada nisam imala problema sa prociscujucim samponima (oznaka clarifying/purifying) tako da sam zaista imala ako ne visoka, onda barem pristojna ocekivanja. Nazalost, moram reci da nisu bila ispunjena.

True, I do like the fresh citrusy smell of this shampoo and it being very foamy whilst having a creamy texture. It feels very pleasant under the shower and makes the hair squeaky clean. Things really go well as long as I'm under the shower while troubles arise the moment I step out. Whilst wrapping my hair in a towel, I've noticed how tangled my ends are and this happens after every use. There is no way to dry my hair with or without combing it prior using a blow dryer as the ends resemble small balls of yarn. I always need to slather them with a good leave-in (I use the Redken Extreme Anti-Snap and it's amazing, will review it soon). After I manage to dry my hair I encounter more setbacks. My scalp and roots have no volume whatsoever. Zero. Zilch. They appear as if they were flattened along the scalp and I often fight the urge to reach for my dry shampoo right after washing my hair which isn't a good thing. But what really disappointed me was how frizzy it made my ends – I really was desperate as this was the last thing I'd expect! They were mad frizzy, regardless of how much leave-in or oil I'd apply. Before I made them heavy with product, that is. I found that things seemed a bit better if I used this Redken clarifying shampoo as my first wash and continued with my Kerastase or other regular shampoo – that way roots had more volume and ends weren't as frizzy but to be quite honest – a repurchase isn't a likely option. I will use the bottle up but will keep my eye on some other claryfing/purifying shampoos in the future. Too bad that the cleansing cream shampoo didn't float my boat because the leave-in I'm using is wonderful and I'm sure that there are lots of Redken gems out there. Just not this one.

Istina je da mi se dopada svjezi, citrusni miris koji krasi ovaj sampon i sto pravi odlicnu pjenu iako je kremaste teksture. Prijatan je osjecaj koristiti ga ispod tusa i cini kosu gotovo pa skriputavo cistom. Svi su dojmovi pozitivni dok kosu perem sa ovim samponom a prica se mijenja po prestanku koristenja i ispiranju. Svaki put mi se desilo da, dok kosu obmotavam peskirom, odmah primjecujem kako su krajevi zapetljani. Doslovno je nemoguce da kosu rascesljam nakon pranja i prije susenja a da mi se cetka ne zapetlja u kuglice kose koje lice na klupko vune. Svaki put bih morala nanijeti obilne kolicine leave-in tretmana (koristim bas Redken Extreme Anti-Sap koji je odlican, uskoro ce i on biti recenziran) na krajeve kako bih ih raspetljala sto bezbolnije. Nakon sto uspijem savladati taj korak i pocnem susiti kosu, nailazim na dodatne probleme. Kada god koristim ovaj sampon, tjeme i korijen kose bi bili liseni volumena u potpunosti. Kosa bi djelovala kao da je sljepljena pri tjemenu – odmah nakon pranja i susenja. Tesko sam se kontrolisala da ne posegnem za samponom za suho pranje kako bih popravila stvar – to je prilicno los znak, priznati cete. No, ono sto me zaista razocaralo jeste ogromna naelektrisanost krajeva, nesto sto nikada ne bih ocekivala! Rijec je o strasnom naelektrisanju gdje su i gumice za kosu priskakale u pomoc. Pokusavala sam da krajeve smirim uljima u cemu ne bih uspjevala prije nego bih ih otezala. Sve navedene stvari koje sam primjetila bi bile ublazene ako bih Redken sampon koristila pri prvom pranju a potom Kerastase ili neki drugi sampon. Iskreno govoreci, ponovna kupovina se nece desiti ali drago mi je sto sam u svom slucaju demistifikovala ovaj sampon i znam na cemu stojim kada je on u pitanju. Iskoristiti cu trenutno pakovanje i baciti se u potragu za necim slicnim sto ce mi vise odgovarati. Zaista je steta sto se nismo pronasli, pootovo jer sam zadovoljna sa leave-in tretmanom ovog brenda, no ovakve stvari se desavaju. Nadam se da ce vama cija je kosa slicna mojoj ova recenzija biti od pomoci.
