Product review: Redken "ringlet" lives up to its name



Redkenringlet According to Redken, more than half of women have naturally curly or wavy hair. And we need help.

But does Redken have the answer?

For a week and a half, I've been trying out one of the products in Redken's new Curl Collection. I went into this experiment a skeptic, having tried all manners of products over the years that left my hair flat, frizzy, crunchy or just looking bad.

But miracles can happen. I actually liked Redken's Ringlet 07, designed for medium texture hair. While described as a "curl perfector," it was far from perfect, but definitely decent.

Pro: It defined my curls without leaving my hair crunchy, or looking wet all day.

Con: It only worked when I dried my hair with a diffuser; air-drying alone was ho-hum. And the biggest predictor of the quality of my hair day was not the Redken product but Ma Nature's humidity level.

Still, I got one of the nicest compliments I've heard in a while about how nice my hair looked. And I had a lot more good hair days than bad ones using this product, which is better than my usual batting average.

Ringlet 07 retails for $17 at salons. Redken also is debuting some new and improved products for girls with fine curls and those with thick, coarse hair.

Like 'em? Like something else? I'd love to know...
