The $22 Shampoo And Conditioner That Can Actually Save Damaged Hair

When you have an emergency, you call in the people who can fix it without asking any questions. Stove gone up in flames? Firefighter. Broken nail? Nail tech. When it comes to damaged hair that seems hopelessly, irredeemably broken and fried, let Redken take over. On dark brown hair or ash blonde, you're in for a treat.

If it wasn’t clear by now, we’re fully obsessed with Redken’s Nature + Science collection, and Nature + Science Extreme Shampoo and Conditioner is the heavy hitter of the bunch. If you feel like your hair is beyond fixing (thank you, botched dye job), don’t give up just yet. Let this hair care system have a chance to work its magic on your mane.

Why Use Redken Nature + Science Extreme Shampoo And Conditioner

For hair that feels damaged or fragile, it can be tempting just to give up and allow your mane to feel like ramen noodles for the rest of time (or at least until the damage grows out). Don’t give up! The sulfate, silicone, and paraben-free Redken Nature + Science Extreme system is the newest iteration of Redken's existing Extreme line, but it utilizes high performance ingredients sourced from nature to deliver amazing results with a clean feel.

The shampoo cleanses and strengthens hair while helping to prevent hair breakage and split ends—you can chalk those results up to the formula, which includes naturally-derived lupine protein to help strengthen your hair.

Need another reason to invest? Redken is serious about this whole green-ish beauty thing. The formulas are fully vegan, the packaging is made with recycled plastic, and 83 percent of shampoo and 99 percent of conditioner ingredients are naturally derived. Hello, this is what falling in love looks like!

How To Use Redken Nature + Science Extreme Shampoo And Conditioner

There’s no insane science to washing your hair (we’re aware you’ve been doing it alone most of your life), but it bears mentioning that Redken Nature + Science Extreme Shampoo can be applied, scrubbed in, and rinsed out just like any other formula. Follow it up with conditioner, applying throughout your mid-lengths and ends for the best results.

It would be nice if using one shampoo could change your whole head of hair, but it’ll take a whole mental shift to get your hair shiny and hair flip-worthy again. For starters, take a break from heavy heat styling to give your strands a chance to mend. If you’re missing the softness, add an overnight mask to your routine (Redken’s Extreme Strengthening Mega Hair Mask is a Holy Grail pick of ours).

At-home care can only take you so far, so don’t hesitate to book an appointment if you feel like your split ends are making you sink slowly into a pit of self-loathing. These days, in-salon treatments are often totally customizable and take less time than a binge watching TV session.
