With rich roots (no pun intended) in the haircare industry, Redken was founded in 1960, when bleaching and teasing had taken its heavy toll on founder Paula Kent’s tresses. Over sixty years since the brand’s debut, Redken’s hair heroes have been game-changing for strands around the globe! And it keeps getting better – since Redken’s relaunch, they’ve adopted a sustainable and inclusive approach, and we’re beyond excited to share the range with you.

It’s also part of a three-step system, of which the shampoo is the second stage in your haircare routine. The first step is the Redken Blondage High Bright Pre-Treatment (which should be left on the hair for 5-10 minutes before shampooing) whilst the third step is the Redken Blondage High Bright Conditioner.

This Redken toning shampoo is essentially a brunette shampoo. This color deposting blue toning formula is suitable for brown hair, and its progressive toning system is ideal for preventing and neutralising brass on both highlighted and natural tresses. Citric Acid strengthens and repairs hair from the core. It’s sulfate-free, so it’s ideal for a gentle cleanse whilst preventing colour fade and maintaining your shade’s vibrancy. Whilst blondes need an anti-yellow shampoo, an anti-orange shampoo is more ideal for brunettes, wherein the Active Blue Pigments cancel out any brassiness. For colour-treated brunettes, we recommend using immediately after a salon service to prolong cool tones, and for natural brunettes, we recommend using as and when needed to keep orange undertones under control. Use as part of a complete system with the Redken Color Extend Brownlights Blue Toning Conditioner for best results.

We recommend using it once to twice per week with the Redken Colour Extend Graydiant Conditioner for maximum results.
