I’ve had blonde hair all my life, but as I’ve aged, my hair has naturally darkened, becoming more dirty blonde than the vibrant, bright blonde hair of my youth. Luckily, professional coloring means that I can have my hair as bright and blonde as I want with a few trips to the salon every year—but that doesn’t always mean the color is easy to maintain. Lightening treatments and coloring can be brutal on hair texture and health, especially if you have thin, fine hair like me. Not only that, but it’s all too easy to have a bright, perfectly toned blonde turn a brassy shade without proper hair care. That’s why I was so excited to try Redken’s Blondage High Bright line.
After a few weeks of use, I’m happy to report that the Redken Blondage High Bright Pre-Shampoo Treatment, High Bright Shampoo, and High Bright Conditioner made me feel like I was getting professional haircare in the comfort of my own home. My hair was brighter, blonder, and (this was my favorite part) softer and healthier-feeling than it was before I used the products. After just one use, I honestly felt like I had just left a color treatment at the salon—no purple shampoo required. Curious about Redken’s Blondage High Bright line? Here is everything you need to know.
What is Redken Blondage High Bright?
The Redken Blondage High Bright line consists of Redken Blondage High Bright Pre-Shampoo Treatment, Redken Blondage High Bright Shampoo, and Redken Blondage High Bright Conditioner. Together, these products use vitamin C to brighten and rejuvenate blonde hair. The products’ vitamin C and Brightening Care Complex lifts impurities that darken or dull blonde hair, resulting in beautiful, bright blonde hair.
Redken Blondage High Bright Pre-Shampoo Treatment
The first step of the Redken Blondage High Bright system is the pre-shampoo treatment spray which preps and clarifies the hair before its washed and conditioned. It also uses chelating agents, which help bond the cuticles of the hair, adding to the silky-smooth feel of your hair after using the Redken High Bright regimen.
Redken Blondage High Bright Shampoo
The Redken Blondage High Bright Shampoo uses the vitamin C and Brightening Care Complex to clarify the scalp and hair, removing any darkness or fullness from the hair and brightening the overall color and look of the hair.
Redken Blondage High Bright Conditioner
Using ingredients like wheat protein and glycerin, the Redken Blondage High Bright Conditioner is the final step in the High Bright System to leave blonde hair bright, blonde, moisturized, and healthy.
Who Should Use Redken Blondage High Bright?
The Redken Blondage High Bright system is appropriate for anyone who has blonde, color-treated hair and is interested in using Vitamin C to brighten hair. If you’re looking for a brightening product that won’t stain your hands, High Bright is perfect for you. While this range is great for all blondes, it’s particularly excellent for high level blondes—think levels seven through 10. The only thing to note is that you should wait at least two weeks after your last color treatment to use the Redken Blondage High Bright products. The line is also for anyone who has dry, damaged, or dulled hair.
How Often Should I Use Redken Blondage High Bright?
After waiting two weeks after your last color treatment, the Redken Blondage High Bright line is best used daily until the desired level of brightness is achieved. Once your hair is as bright blonde as you want, you should stop using the Redken Blondage High Bright Pre-Shampoo Treatment, but can continue using the Redken Blondage High Bright Shampoo and Conditioner or use your other favorite Redken shampoo and conditioner.
How I Use Redken Blondage High Bright In My Hair Routine
I added all three of the Redken Blondage High Bright products to the shelf in my shower, so I remembered to use them in order. Typically, I would apply the Redken High-Bright Pre-Treatment Shampoo after dampening my hair and then let the treatment sit while I shaved or did a body scrub. Then I would use the Redken Blondage High Bright Shampoo and Conditioner as instructed after.

After Redken Blondage High Bright
I have used brightening treatments in the past, and I was honestly pretty skeptical this would work, but not only was I pleasantly surprised at the overall brighter and blonder look of my hair, but I was blown away at just how much healthier and softer my hair felt after using the products. It felt like I had just received a conditioning treatment and a blowout at the salon. I received compliments on my hair after using the system just one time.
