Magic in a Bottle
This was a revelation for me! The first time, I used a bit too much - it really is very concentrated so you don't need a lot of product. I'd previously used a popular bonding shampoo and not been that impressed but Redken Acidic Bonding Concentrate Shampoo performed beautifully. My hair feels so clean and silky after use. Even my hairdresser asked me what I had been using, after only 3 shampoos! I did use it in conjunction with the conditioner and leave in treatment and highly recommend the suite.
By my third shampoor cycle, my fine, dry, coloured and heavily foiled hair was silky soft and clean feeling. My hair is definitely less brittle and I have shine back that I haven't seen for years. Given the small amount of product required, this delivers bang for buck. I have very long hair and this bottle will last a long time. Another plus - I went longer without washing my hair. It's magic in a bottle.
Very concentrated shampoo
The metallic pearl packaging is quite eye catching! It feels luxurious and expensive to use. The scent is of citrus which isn't my personal favourite. I find the shampoo very concentrated and you really only need a small amount. This shampoo could last a long time. It foams very well and really gets all the oil and grime out. I find it slightly too drying for my dry hair type so I make sure I use plenty of leave in treatment after I condition. This shampoo goes really well with the super thick concentrated conditioner and light weight leave on treatment. They are a great trio in providing heat protection whilst also treating and preventing damaged hair. Overall this is a nice shampoo that I've enjoyed using.
BUY IT NOW
This product is INCREDIBLE. This was an absolute saviour for my dry and damaged hair after bleaching. The product has a wonderful scent and is thick enough that a little goes a really long way.
This product has been amazing and has absolutely turned my hair journey around!
The entire set of these products has not only made it easy to deal with my usually frizzy and incredible damaged knotty hair but also has left it with shine and strength I didn’t anticipate
The shampoo has a very viscous texture and seems to grip the hair well as you wash, lathers nicely and is soothing to the scalp
The conditioner does create an excess of oil, is easy to comb through and washes out with zero extra weight left over
The styling cream not only creates the most incredible shine and cuts the drying time for my hair in half but has also helped to create volume and lift in my otherwise lifeless hair.
I have never found a set of products I would recommend more
A new mum must have
Just from looking at the packaging for this shampoo you can tell straight away that it is a quality porduct. I have very thick coloured hair which is starting to be dull and brittle after having a baby. This shampoo was just what I needed to help bring life back to my hair. It has a lovely scent and after one use the difference can be felt. My hair is already starting to feel stronger, softer and has more life to it. Can't wait to see how my hair is after regular use with the product. There was no burning or skin issues after using this product - I suffer from sensative skin on my scalp and had no flare ups.
Really enjoyed using it and would recommend, especially to knew mums looking to bring some shine back to their hair.
A rich and luxurious shampoo, a little goes a long way so even though it may be more expensive than others, it is still value for money.
The shampoo has a rich lather even when using a small amount, and leaves hair feeling super clean without any dryness - my hair was easier to style with less frizz, and looks and feels in better condition. Also kept my highlights looking fresh and bright. Not a huge fan of the scent, however this was not overpowering and did not linger.
I used the shampoo in conjunction with the conditioner and leave in treatment, and was impressed with all three products.
Overall a great product, salon quality with nice packaging - would use again.
Loved this shampoo!
I loved this product! I have a lot of hair issues at the moment after surgery including hair loss and matting and this made my hair feel stronger, healthier and smoother. I love the smell and it lathers well. I didn’t feel like I needed to shampoo twice as I often do. I also didn’t feel like my hair was stripped of its natural oils. My hair was easier to style and stayed looking and feeling good for longer than usual. I also like the packaging of this product and felt I didn’t need to use a huge amount to get a good wash. Definitely a winner from Redken!
Lovely and refreshing shampoo
I really enjoyed using this shampoo - the packaging was really nice, and I must say the 'acid' part left me a little concerned that it would be drying, but it wasn't at all. The shampoo had a refreshing, light citrus scent. I have fine, blonde hair and tend to wash it a few times a week as it gets quite greasy. I found that I had to wash my hair less while using this shampoo, and that it left my hair super clean but didn't leave it dry or strip it too much. My hair feels super shiny and soft, I'd definitely purchase this again. I couldn't find any negatives in using this range. It is a little on the expensive side but I felt like a little bit of product went a long way.
LOVE this shampoo
I am loving the Redken Acidic Bonding Concentrate Shampoo! I have been using this shampoo with the matching conditioner and leave in treatment in the Redken range and the products are fabulous!
The shampoo comes in a plastic bottle and I love the stylish look of the bottle. The shampoo itself has a has a delicious smelling citrus scent that disappears softly after applying the shampoo. You only need a little of the shampoo to go a long way in your hair and it works through the hair easily.
My hair suffers through bleach and heat styling a lot, and this shampoo has been a little miracle worker repairing my hair and taming all the frizz daily. Right from the first few washes, I could see that my hair was already starting to feel much more nourished and in better condition. Having used this shampoo (and conditioner) for a while now, my hair feels so much softer, looks shinier, has less frizz and is in overall better condition. I love using this shampoo!!!
The shampoo may be considered to be a bit on the pricier side but its salon quality and worth the money!
Silky Smooth Hair
I love this shampoo! I was previously already using Redken (smooth hair) so was happy to give this one a go - particularly as I have dry, heat damaged hair that I regularly colour.
This shampoo smells lovely and I only need to use a little each time for my hair to end up clean and silky smooth! I've now replaced my current Redken with this shampoo and would definitely recommend it. I use it along with the conditioner and once a week the treatment. Even without the conditioner, my hair feels clean and smooth.
Overall, my hair feels softer, smoother and healthier.
Instantly Stronger Hair!
This Redken shampoo is definitely a keeper. First off, the product smells amazing (like sweet grapefruit) and lathers really well so you really get that clean sensation when washing your hair. My hair is generally dry and has a lot of split ends due to colouring and straightening but the acidic bonding concentrate genuinely makes your hair feel instantly stronger! I’ve used a lot of different shampoos but none have the strengthening effect that this one does. My hair felt a lot healthier and it was much easier styling my hair / blowdrying my hair afterwards when typically my hair would dry out or look quit frizzy. Love the product and would highly recommend to people with thin / damaged hair!
Another winner from Redken
I’ve been a Redken user for a long time now, and discovering this shampoo, has reminded me why I’m so devoted to this brand. I found that my hair is left so healthy and smooth, not like its dry, heat-damaged self, that it’s almost as if I don’t need conditioner. I still use conditioner though, and pair the shampoo with the Redken Acidic Bonding Concentrate Conditioner – they work so well together! My hair is more lively than ever, and smells fresh without the unnatural scents that are added to other shampoos. I highly recommend this shampoo for those who have dry, damaged hair like me… you’ll really see and feel the difference with this.
Being platinum blonde can be hard work!!!! It definitely takes a major toll on your locks.
I was lucky enough to sample this product and boyyy did I love it!
The texture of the shampoo was a thick goo. (A good goo). You only needed a tiny amount of product which went a long way. It smelled SO AMAZING!!! Like jelly beans. Yum.
It didn’t say on the packet whether I needed to use it twice but I did anyway. My hair felt super clean.
I paired it with the conditioner and same thing- an amazing smell and great textured product.
I followed the wash with the leave in treatment. It just made my hair perfect. It wasn’t greasy AT ALL!! I usually wash my hair every 2/3 days but I went a whole week and only used dry shampoo once at around day 5!
I haven’t found it to strip any colour from my hair so it hasn’t gone brassy which is definitely an added bonus!
I do have human hair extensions in and it didn’t effect the quality of them at all.
I’m super keen to see how much this trip can repair my damaged locks. I’ll definitely be repurchasing this product when it is empty!
I get a weekly blow wave and I took this with me for my hairdresser to use. She was equally as impressed as I was!
Smells Amazing and De-frizzed
In love with this shampoo. The shampoo lathers up so nicely. I find many other shampoos don’t lather well with my oilier hair. This shampoo thoroughly cleans and leaves my hair feeling soft and silky.
After following up with conditioner my hair felt super smooth. There wasn’t any frizz, which is usually how my hair gets in humid weather.
The shampoo also kept my hair clean for longer than usual. The colour didn't seem to go brassy as quickly either.
The fragrance reminded me of floral gummy bears which sounds unusual but I really liked it. Very happy I tried this product.
Will use again
My hair is dry, frizzy and coloured.
ACIDIC BONDING CONCENTRATE SHAMPOO FOR DAMAGED HAIR was really simple to use.
I liked the smell.
It did not strip my hair. I would highly recommend it especially if you have coloured hair that is prone to breakage.
I did wish it had a different bottle as it was hard to get the product out. But it made my hair soft and still nourish it.
I also felt as if I was losing less hair than before I started using this product.
And who doesn’t like a sulfate free product?!
Strong, clean, repaired hair.
I was fortunate enough to be selected to trial and review Redken’s Acidic Bonding Concentrate Shampoo.
I have really long, coloured (Blonde) hair which had recently been dry, wiry and lacked-lustre.
The first thing I noticed about the shampoo was the pleasant smell & luxurious, creamy texture. My hair actually felt like it was being thoroughly cleaned all the way to the scalp. No need for a follow up shampoo, my hair felt so clean and strong. This feeling continued the entire time I’ve been using this amazing product.
After using this shampoo for the last 4 weeks my hair is visible less prone to breakage (my flyaways have disappeared!), my split ends are less visible, and overall my hair is stronger and shines like never before.
If you are looking for Professional Salon Quality hair-care then you’ve met your match with this range. A little goes a long way, and after four weeks I am no where near half-way through the bottle. I will definitely be purchasing again.
Will use again
I'm so happy I gave this a go. My hair is super fine, coloured but with oily roots which can be a difficult combo to find a shampoo for. I really enjoyed the consistency of this shampoo - it's very thick. So a little goes a long way which can only be a good thing when you are forking out for shampoo. I usually shampoo twice and wash my hair every morning. I found that I only needed to shampoo once and wash every other day. I found that using this line over time, my hair felt stronger and healthier. The only negative I have is that I wasn't too keen on the smell but I figure that's a small price to pay if a product actually works. Alongside the shampoo I also used the conditioner and treatment. I think using the 3 products as a system has definitely helped strengthen my hair. My hair is now super shiny and silky and feels stronger and healthier. I will definitely be purchasing this again. I would also recommend this line for anyone with a similar hair type to mine.
High Quality Shampoo
The fancy packaging makes it look like Redken shampoo is a high quality product.
The shampoo was a thick, creamy texture and I only had to use a small amount compared to other shampoos. I used it with the matching Acidic Bonding Concentrate conditioners. It left my hair feeling clean and smooth.
I have only used it a few times and can already see an improvement in my hair and it is much easier to style. Although Redken Acidic Bonding Concentrate is a bit more expensive than other shampoos it is good value and is a high quality product I would recommend.
Salon Quality at Home!
If you’re hair is coloured, damaged, fine & in serious need of some attention, this is the shampoo for you!
Redken acidic bonding concentrate shampoo is SLS free and gentle on the hair shaft! Don’t be mislead by its thick texture, it’s lightweight on the hair and doesn’t weigh it down at all!
Similar to a clarifying shampoo- definitely get an amazing cleanse! I barely felt the need to double wash!
I have fine, colour damaged, frizzy hair! And I was so surprised that not only did I get an amazing clean, my hair did not feel stripped of any moisture. It gets better, my hair was still light and not weighed down (for all who still love a bit of body to their hair)! Just like a salon shampoo at home, finally!!!
Compared to other products I finally feel like I have finally found a shampoo where I get the best of all worlds! And I don’t have to sacrifice one for the other!
If you’re in need of a new shampoo, definitely try Redken acidic bonding concentrate shampoo! Highly recommend!
Perfect timing! I recently had a scalp bleach done and as result, my hair is quite dry and damaged. So this little beauty couldn't have come at a better time. I have always been a fan of Redken, so I was super excited to try this new product.
This product really impressed me, from the perfect sized packaging, the lush smell and the thickness of the product, washing my hair is a dream with this.
After using this twice now, I have to say I will definitely be buying it again! My hair feels stronger and thicker and is easier to style. It has given my hair new life and body. You also don't need to use too much, so the bottle will last quite a while, even with my long thick hair.
Salon quality at home
This shampoo is exceptional. It combined with its companion conditioner & treatment, it has restored my dry, sun damaged and highlighted hair to feel fresh and revitalized without the need for a hairdressers' appointment, true salon luxe quality at home. The shampoo is a thick texture meaning I only need a small amount to lather my long hair, foams really well and smells divine, not too over- powering. Now my dry and lightened hair is the softest it has ever been and I feel that the Acidic Bonding has helped repair the highlighted colour looking less yellow damaged from the sun and more vibrant from the shampoo. Excellent product
