Manic Monday Review and Giveaway: Redken Color Extend

Posted on Mar 9, 2009 at 4:53AM

Monday, Monday, can't trust that day...argh, and Daylight Savings Time added to our normal Monday mania!  Don't you just abhor waking up in the dark?   But a hot shower with Redken Color Extend Shampoo and Conditioner washed away our Manic Monday blues and in its place left a powerful 360° Protective Complex that helps shield, stabilize, and secure color intensity. 

Both of us have struggled through the winter with bipolar, manic-depressive hair.  Menopause left previously straight-as-a-stick Mother Blogger's hair with a syndrome of waves that crash against her head in all directions.  Extensions created a nest of crazy tangles with split personalities on Jamie's head.

The Redken Color Extend Test:

Redken Color Extend Shampoo lathered well and left our hair feeling clean and smelling fabulous. 

Although we both found the Redken Color Extend Conditioner to be more than acceptable for normal hair, our hair was in need of deep therapeutic conditioning.  Redken Extend Rich Recovery was just what the doctor ordered.  After a fifteen-minute treatment, our color-treated hair was smooth, manageable and radiant.

We haven't had a chance to test Redken Color Extend with respect to protecting our color from the sun since we haven't seen The Sun since last August.  Argh!  Although spring is around the corner, the sun is in another city, but as soon as it makes its presence, we will test Redken Color Extend again.

After styling our hair, we misted our hair with Redken Color Extend Shine Enrich Protective Shine Serum.  Our hair look gorg!  Shiny and healthy! 

Do you want to wash away your Manic Monday Blues?
