We love sleek flat-ironed strands and bouncy curling iron waves as much as the next girl, but it’s no secret that heat styling is one of the worst culprits when it comes to hair damage. Whether you rely on hot tools every day or only bust them out for special occasions, temperatures too hot for your hair type can cause damage that leaves your hair fragile, broken, and dull.
There are plenty of heat protectants on the market, but if you’re serious about making sure your dark brown hair is healthy, it’s time to take your heat protectant to the next level with Redken’s Extreme Play Safe.
What is Redken Extreme Play Safe?Joining Redken’s iconic Extreme line, Extreme Play Safe is a fortifying and heat protection treatment meant to defend against hot tool damage. The leave-in treatment is infused with tourmaline, just like many of your hot tools, and plant protein to provide care, heat protection up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, and reduce the appearance of split ends by 70 percent.
The best part? The formula prevents new damage from daily hot tool use. So feel free to slay sleek straight strands every day!
Who is Redken Extreme Play Safe good for?
Extreme Play Safe is perfect for anyone who heat styles their hair, no matter your hair type, texture, or length. While everyone should use a heat protectant product when heat styling their hair, Extreme Play Safe is particularly great for anyone whose hair is already suffering from damage. Extreme strengthening products give damaged hair the strength it needs to help prevent hair breakage and damage.
How To Use Redken Extreme Play Safe
If it sounds like you need Redken Extreme Play Safe in your hair care arsenal, here’s how you can incorporate it into your routine to help protect your hair from hot tools. Begin by washing your hair with Redken Extreme Shampoo and Conditioner. The shampoo cleanses, strengthens, fortifies weakened areas, restores and repairs hair while protecting hair's natural shine. When used as a system, the hair strengthening conditioner protects shine, repairs hair, and leaves it supple and shiny.
If your strands are in need of a little extra TLC, swap out the Extreme Conditioner for the Extreme Strengthening Mega Hair Mask For Damaged Hair. The two-in-one strengthening hair mask is both a treatment and care extender designed specifically for damaged hair. The Extreme Hair Strengthening Mega Mask has the power of the RCT Protein Complex to make your hair stronger from the root to the tip.
Once you’ve thoroughly rinsed and gentled dried your strands, apply a dime-sized amount of Redken Extreme Play Safe throughout your damp hair. Concentrate your application on the most fragile parts of your hair including the mid-lengths and ends. Do not rinse out the product and heat style your hair as usual.
With Redken’s Extreme Play Safe in your arsenal, you won’t have to choose between healthy and heat styled hair.
