Redken saves bleached-out peroxide hair!



Dolly So, Deal Diva Letitia came up to me a while ago with her hands full of shampoo. "Here," she said. "None of us really dye our hair."

I couldn't help feeling a bit like that lady who chain smokes outside the salon with a head full of tin foil while all the more natural types stare on in disgust on the way to Smoothie King. No matter. I'm not one to turn down a good sampling opportunity. This time, it was the Redken Color Extend line, a giveaway which we so graciously led you to last month.

I like to alternate between nice, expensive salon shampoo and, you know, the stuff that costs $.79 and just says SHAMPOO across the bottle. It depends on the state of my hair, the state of my wallet, the state of the union, how much the salon people sucker me into buying. Plus, I think it's good to keep your hair guessing and mix it up. I've tried Aveda, Biolage, Grund, but never Redken.

Redken2 I've been using it for a couple weeks now. I'm not sure if it has extended my Dolly Parton bleach job or not, but I have noticed a difference. My hair is softer. It drapes better on my gourd. It looks healthy. Last week, one of my friends said, "Did you do something new to your hair? It just looks so... GOOD!"

Sigh. I just don't know how to take these things.

Anyway, if your hair needs a boost of moisture or a little loving, check out Redken. In the $20 range, it's not cheap, but you can always switch back to your boyfriend's Suave next month. And just think off all the questionable compliments you'll get from friends!
