Redken, with its headquarters on 5th Avenue in New York, was officially founded in the early 1960s. Redken claims to be the first company to manufacture products containing protein and moisture that are claimed to dramatically improve weakened and sensitized hair and to restore strength and shine. Today Redken offers a complete collection from advanced hair color options to hair care solutions to creative styling products for both men and women. Redken is a company which claims to be committed to providing groundbreaking products with an urban edge. Redken wants to be known for creating the buzz, setting the pace, establishing what’s new and what’s next. The company has aligned itself with the fashion world, becoming a leader in “backstage beauty” and sending many of their best artists to the every-popular Fashion Week events in Milan and Paris to create the looks for the industry’s most prestigious designers all over the world. Redken artists translate the latest runway trends into real products intended for salon use. Redken’s foundation is based on an extensive knowledge and understanding of science and hair.

Product Details

There are several categories in the Redken Hair Care line of products. These include Redken All Soft, Redken Max Control, Redken Body Full, Redken Color Enhancer, Redken Real Control, Redken Smooth Down, Redken UV Rescue, Redken Extreme, Redken Blonde Glam, Redken Clear Moisture, Redken Mild Control, Redken Fresh Curls and Redken Medium Control. The products are formulated for different hair types and are designed to transform each category. The products are not available for purchase from the official Redken website, only through select hair salons and retail locations.

The Good

  • Redken has developed products for every hair type and hair problem.
  • Redken has made the products available at many retail and salon locations.

The Bad

  • Redken does not make it products available to consumers on the official website.
  • The full list of ingredients is not disclosed on any of the formulas.
  • No customer testimonials are posted on the official website
  • Clearly, this is a line of hair care and hair styling products, not a wrinkle treater.

The Bottom Line

Consumers are likely to purchase Redken Hair Care products due to its major presence in the market place. The products can be found in virtually every hair salon and major department store which carries hair care products. Redken has been in the hair care industry since 1960 and offers an array of products for every hair type and hair problem. It would be helpful if Redken made its products available to consumers on the official website as well as offer free samples and customer testimonials from those who have tried the products. Availability is key and companies wishing to expand profits should explore other avenues to increase their bottom line. Consumers too appreciate more buying options for a more informed and pleasant buying experience. If grey hair is one of your main concerns when it comes to aging, Redken may have a solution for you, but obviously this brand does not produce any wrinkle fighers.

Rejuval Skin Bottle

Top Anti-Aging Cream for 2015: Rejuval Skin

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Rejuval Skin is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care. Rejuval Skin contains the advanced scientifically proven ingredient Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the scientific studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Rejuval Skin is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Rejuval Skin Go


(Optional- For Enhanced Results): Vivexin

Editor's Review: 4.6 / 5.0

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this! Vivexin is an anti-aging, eye treatment formulated to lighten dark circles, lessen the appearance of bags under the eyes and minimize fine lines and crow's feet associated with premature skin aging. The three active ingredients in Vivexin - Haloxyl, Eyeliss and Matrixyl - are backed with clinical research and positive consumer testimonials. If that's not enough to convince consumers to try Vivexin, the company offers a 90-day money-back guarantee so consumers can see the changes in eye appearance with the option of returning the product if they are not convinced >> Read more about Vivexin Go

    Today as I was in my living room downstairs, I heard a loud noise coming from the upstairs Bedroom area.I went up and saw everything in the medicine cabinet,was on the floor in the master bathroom. I then saw the culprit.It was a container that had exploded snd everything had been blasted blasted to the floor in the bathroom from the medicine cabinet.Upon finding the can, that exploded lying on the floor and the bottom end of the can(redkin.5th ave NYC)the bottom of the spray can had completely lost the bottom of the can due to the explosion. There was no indication of damage anywhere in the bathroom.At this time the temperature in the bathroom was approx 22 degrees.C.So it seems strange that the warning on the can said that the can could explode if it was heated.and the outside air was also coming from the master bedroom.So it seems strange that this should have happened.Maybe you could come up with a reason for this to happen considering the room was even probably much cooler with the bedroom window opened.Thank you for your attention in this matter
