I've had a trying relationship with my hair my whole life, especially when it comes to its split ends and lack of softness. Without my entire one-hour process of finger coiling, diffusing, and praying for a hair miracle, my curly hair would tend to look beaten up, my split ends breaking apart like an unraveled rope. I could never just hop out of the shower and out the door.
Whenever I'd sit in my hairdresser's chair, they would always try to convince me to snip a few more inches off than I initially intended. I became accustomed to knowing the variety of ways split ends could occur—the basic split, the fork in the road, and my personal favorite, the single strand knot.
Split ends have always been a part of my hair journey, which is why when I got the chance to review Redken’s Extreme Anti-Snap Split Ends Hair Treatment, I jumped at the opportunity. After giving this leave-in treatment for damaged and split ends a try over the past few weeks, I couldn’t be happier with the results. Keep reading for my full Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Hair Treatment review.
What Is Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Split Ends Hair Treatment?
The Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Leave-In Treatment is a best-selling leave-in treatment for damaged hair and split end repair. Formulated with Redken’s exclusive Fortifying Complex, this product deeply penetrates the hair while ceramides strengthen the hair fibers. The brand’s Interlock Protein Network also rebuilds surface protection and strengthens the hair. The leave-in treatment helps fortify hair to reduce breakage up to 75 percent, split ends, and mechanical, chemical, heat, and surface damage. The formula is suitable for all hair types.
How To Use Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Split Ends Hair Treatment
If it sounds like the Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Leave-In Treatment is right for your mane, continue reading for details on how to incorporate the product into your hair care routine. For best results, we recommend using products from the entire Redken Extreme line. This is especially important if your hair is severely damaged, as the Redken Extreme formulas will help fortify your strands from the very first step of your hair care routine. Kick off your product line-up with the Redken Extreme Shampoo and Extreme Conditioner.
When used together, the shampoo and conditioner system is formulated to cleanse, strengthen, fortify, and repair damaged hair while protecting your mane’s natural shine. If your hair needs a little extra TLC, once or twice a week swap out the Extreme Strengthening Conditioner for the Extreme Strengthening Hair Mask. The dual chamber hair mask provides deep, intense conditioning that lasts up to three washes and fortifies hair to be 15 times stronger.
Once you’ve washed, conditioned, and rinsed your hair completely, it’s time to move on to the star of the show: Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Leave-In Treatment. Pump a quarter-sized amount of the product into your hands and begin applying it to the ends and mid-lengths of your hair. If you’re experiencing damage closer to your roots, continue applying the product until you’ve covered your entire mane. After you’ve applied the product to your strands, continue to style your hair as you normally would.
How I Use Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Split Ends Hair Treatment In My Hair Care Routine
As a curly girl, my routine needs to be perfect. If I stray too far from my tried-and-true curly hair routine, I'm left with frizzy waves that don’t resemble my natural hair texture. Luckily, the Redken Anti-Snap formula fits into my routine like a glove.
After I take a shower, I use a wide-tooth comb to remove any tangles from my hair. Usually, I add curling cream. Then, I spray the Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Split Ends Hair Treatment onto the ends of my hair, focusing on where I struggle with split-ends and breakage.
When finished spraying, I finger coil my hair to help define the shape of my ringlets. I then take my t-shirt and plop my hair and leave it be for 20 minutes. When the time has passed, I let my hair loose and either air dry or use my diffuser if I'm in a rush.
Over the last few weeks, I noticed three things. First, my hair smells terrific due to the fruity aroma from the Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Split Ends Hair Treatment. I've been complimented by friends who say I smell like I've been bathing in bath bombs every day. Second, my hair looks and feels fresh. Lastly, detangling my ringlets has never been easier.
The only way to really get rid of split ends is by getting trimmed regularly, but this treatment helps mask the look and feel of them between salon appointments as much as possible.
If you struggle with damaged or split ends, Redken's Anti-Snap Treatment is a must-have for your routine.
