Shop Redken


Paula Kent co-founded Redken Laboratories in 1960. As a young actress in the late 1950s, when hair was highly bleached and teased, Paula was challenged with baby fine hair and sensitive skin. On set in Hollywood, she constantly experienced allergic reactions to the products used by hairdressers and makeup artists. She visited dermatologists and hairdressers to find a solution, but no one could explain to her the science behind the products.

 

In a moment of inspiration, Paula realized that she could help millions of other people who needed gentle, high-performance products – and that professional hairdressers needed to know the chemistry of hair and skin, product ingredients and their relationship to beautiful, healthy hair.

 

Using $3,000 she earned from appearing in a beer commercial, Paula Kent and her hairdresser, Jheri Redding (forming the name "REDKEN") started Redken with three products and an intensive education program for hairdressers. The formulas were developed based on three principles:

 

  • Protein technology (since hair is composed primarily of protein)

  • An acidic pH of 4.5-5.5, complementing the natural pH of the hair and skin

  • Products recommended exclusively by licensed cosmetologists in professional salons

 

With this, Paula Kent revolutionized the professional haircare industry for both stylists and clients. Her pioneering spirit is cherished and she leaves behind a legacy that sustains the brand today.

It's important to alternate between protein, moisture and bond building treatments with bleached/overprocessed hair. I use this product on both wet hair and dry hair when I think my hair needs a bit of help with controlling frizziness and flyaways. It sme...

A great protein treatment

I have naturally very dark hair that has been bleached to platinum blonde. This product is a great protein treatment to use in conjunction with a moisture treatment and a bond rebuilder. I try to use it once a week. The spray bottle can be difficult to use in the shower with wet slippery hands! I also have quite thick hair so need to section my hair and apply to ensure it's dispersed evenly. Once ...

Really like this product

I really like the extreme line by Redken. Makes my hair feel amazing and added a lot of strength to my fine hair. However, this is a very pricey product for such a small amount. I have a lot of hair so I tend to go through this very quickly.
