Back in March, I attended a Redken ‘Own The Tone’ event at Style Club, South William Street. I was treated to a hair colour consultation and wash and blow-dry using specially selected Redken products. As both a natural and colour enhanced blonde, managing brassiness is always my biggest hair concern, so Redken’s Color Extend Blondage range was perfect for me.
The Redken Color Extend Blondage shampoo and conditioner are formulated to tone and strengthen blonde hair. The products work together to neutralise brassy tones and strengthen the hair to prevent breakage. It protects your colour and helps to maintain a clean, bright blonde tone.
Redken Color Extend Blondage Shampoo
This violet-pigmented shampoo has colour-correcting properties and cleanses the hair to eliminate brassy/yellow tones from blonde hair. It is infused with Triple Acid Protein Complex which helps to nourish and strengthen the hair, preventing breakage while also leaving a lovely shine.
Redken Color Extend Blondage Conditioner
This moisturising conditioner also contains violet pigments, assisting in neutralising yellow tones from blonde hair. The light-weight formula leaves the hair feeling super soft and smooth, not to mention smelling amazing!
Using the range
I was gifted the Redken Color Extend Blondage shampoo and conditioner and have been consistently using them since the event (6 months). As this range contains violet pigments, I use it in conjunction with my normal shampoo and conditioner no more than once per week.
I shampoo using my regular shampoo first to remove any greasiness and thoroughly clean my hair. Then, I follow with the Redken Color Extend Blondage shampoo. I use an amount, about the size of a one euro coin, and apply it from root to ends. I leave this for about 5-10 minutes.
When this time has passed, I rinse thoroughly using warm water. When the water is running clear, I apply a similar amount of Redken Color Extend Blondage Conditioner to the mid-lengths and ends. I leave this to work it’s magic for another 5 minutes and comb through before rinsing out.
The Redken ‘Own The Tone’ event took place right before lockdown kicked in, so it was pretty good timing. The range has kept my colour looking so fresh and bright, that I haven’t rushed back to my salon to get my hair done just yet.
The Redken Color Extend Blondage shampoo doesn’t leave my hair feeling straw-like and weak, which I have experienced with purple shampoos in the past. Instead, my hair feels nourished, strong and brighter than before.
I still have over half a bottle of both shampoo and conditioner left, so you should get about 10-12 months out of them, which I think is a great selling point.
Let me know if you try the Redken Color Extend Blondage range. I would love to hear how you get on!
