The Snappy Redken Extreme Anti-Snap


Hair care has become my thing as of lately and if you’re a long time reader of the MB blog you’ll remember of this little hair haul which basically consists out of Redken and Kérastase products. You’ll also remember that I wasn’t as impressed with the Redken Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo. I have maybe less than 1/3 of the bottle left and I’m already snoopin’ around on a hunt for my next purifying/clarifying shampoo. This next Redken product, however, has left a far better impression on me (thank goodness as I was starting to lose faith). Redken Extreme Anti-Snap (240ml for £14.70 via feelunique.com) is a leave-in treatment which should be applied to towel dried hair prior to blow drying/ air drying it. Packaging is nicely done and it’s functional but not travel-friendly (I probably should decant some for future travel purposes). It’s a no frills type of packaging of a blue color and a solid pump. But what exactly does it  do? It protects the hair from heat damage, helps untangle, lessens friction from brushing and repairs strands whilst strengthening them inwardly. An ingredient called 18-MEA helps restore the lipid layer of protection and resurfaces the cuticle to help restore shine while amino acids and protein enter the cuticle for targeted structural repair.  

Njega kose me prilicno zaokuplja u zadnje vrijeme a ako vec odavno citate MB sjetiti cete se ove male investicije na polju njege kose koja se u sustini sastoji od iskljucivo Redken i Kérastase proizvoda. Postoji mogucnost i da ste procitale recenziju Redken Hair Cleansing Cream sampona.koji me nije impresionirao. Ostalo mi je nesto manje od 1/3 bocice ovog sampona a vec sam u potrazi za necim novim ove vrste (purifying/clarifying tip sampona). Naredni Redken proizvod je pak ostavio mnogo bolji utisak na mene sto mi je drago jer sam vec pocela da gubim nadu u ovaj brend. Redken Extreme Anti-Snap (240ml za cca 39KM preko feelunique.com) je leave-in tretman koji se nanosi na svjeze opranu kosu (malo posusenu peskirom) i pred samo susenje kose (bilo na zraku ili fenom). Pakovanje je cvrsto, lijepo uradjeno i funkcionalno ali ne i pogodno za putovanja (vjerovatno bih trebala napraviti dekant vec sada). Dosta je jednostavno pakovanje plave boje a pumpica funkcionise bez problema (nema curenja, prskanja proizvoda i sl.). No sto zaista cini ovaj proizvod? Namijenjen je pruzanju zastite kosi od topline, pomaze pri otpetljavanju kose, smanjuje trenje pri njenom cesljanju i ojacava je dok je istovremeno obnavlja iznutra. Sastojak pod nazivom 18-MEA pomaze obnovi zastitnog sloja lipida, pruza sjaj kosi dok amino kiseline i protein ciljano jacaju samu vlas kose.

Redken Extreme Anti-Snap has also proven itself to be a bit of a help in the styling department as it offers a light hold. The texture is a bit runny and slippery but due to that this product makes combing a little easier. I apply it apply from the middle to the ends of my hair while damp and I use my Tangle Teezer to brush through and distribute the product. This combo together makes my hair tangle-free (especially if I used a hair mask/conditioner in the shower). It smells lightly of strawberry smoothie (not artificially, don’t worry) and the scent lingers for only a day or less in my hair. After two months of use I have noticed that it does make ends silky and more manageable. I do get less hair fallout due to the sheer fact I no longer have to pull my hair as knots aren’t a problem. Split ends haven’t been erased but I get fewer and they progress slower. This treatment by Redken doesn’t weigh my hair but I make suure I don’t apply too much (otherwise it can happen). Two to three pumps are enough for my long, thin hair. It also gets used up slowly and I can totally see it lasting me for over a year – in that aspect, it’s a pricy yet smart  hair investement. I personally feel like it’s not a miracleworker but it does what it promises. It’s an effective leave-in which takes care of hair (ends especially) but I don’t see it doing much for women who color their hair or for hair that has been severely fried/damaged. It works beautifully for my non-colored hair and dehydrated ends and I have decided not to purchase any similar products as I feel my needs have been met. Hopefully this shall be helpful with the decision of your eventual purchase.


Redken Extreme Anti-Snap se pokazao ucinkovitim u na polju stilizovanja kose posto pruza bas blago ali lijepo ucvrscivanje (kosa lijepo pada). Tekstura ovog tretmana je pomalo rijetka i skliska no upravo zbog toga on cini cesljanje cak i mokre kose dosta laksim zadatkom. Nanosim ga od sredine ka krajevima (kao sto sam spomenula, u pitanju je svjeze oprana kosa). Potom kosu rascesljam uz pomoc svoje Tangle Teezer cetke – njih dvoje zajedno su stvarno odlican tim i spas za kosu a stvari mogu biti samo bolje ako sam pod tusem koristila mozda neku masku ili regenerator na krajevima. Miris me asocira na smoothie od jagode (ali ne na neki agresivan, sinteticki miris) a na kosi se zadrzava jedan dan, nekada i krace. Nakon dva mjeseca upotrebe ovog leave-in tretmana primjetila sam da cini krajeve kose svilenkastim i laksim za oblikovanje. Takodjer sam primjetila da vidim dosta manje opale kose na cetki nakon cesljanja sto je rezultat samog toga sto ne moram vise povlaciti kosu – cvorovi vise nisu problem. Ispucale krajeve ovaj tretman nije izbrisao poput gumice ali zaista mi se pucanje rijedje i sporije pojavljuje. Redkenov tretman mi ne otezava kosu ako ne pretjeram sa koristenjem (dvije do tri pumpice su sasvim dovoljne za moju dugu ali tanku kosu). Sporo se trosi i itekako mogu zamisliti da ce mi cijela bocica trajati barem godinu dana (ako ne i duze). Mislim da ovaj proizvod ne cini cuda ali ono sto obeca, to i ispuni. Efektan je leave-in koji se lijepo brine o kosi (pogotovo o krajevima) ali ne mogu zamisliti da bi drasticno mnogo pomogao ofarbanoj i/ili jako ostecenoj kosi. Ipak, mojoj tankoj i neofarbanoj kosi dehidriranih krajeva prija i odlucila sam da zaustavim potragu za bilo cim slicnim posto sam pod utiskom da su mi sve potrebe kose u ovom segmentu podmirene. Nadam se da ce recenzija biti od pomoci svakoj od vas koja je razmisljala o kupovini ovog tretmana.
