No matter what the natural level, once you give your clients a taste of lighter hair, it’s often the same. The next time they’re in your chair they’re begging, “Can you make me blonder?” Hair color pros know that’s a tricky question because the lighter you go, the more you risk damage. But now stylists like Philip Foresto @philipforesto have found a way to safeguard hair health, with up to eight levels of lift. “With Redken Flash Lift Pods Bonder Inside,” says Foresto, “when a client says, ‘make me blonder,’ I say, ‘no problem!’

The unique innovation offers colorists a double dose of convenience, providing a predosed bonding agent plus lightener in one easy-to-use pod. You simply add Redken Pro-Oxide Cream Developer and mix. Stylist are saying the pods are like a healthy haircolor warranty because when you use them you get 73 percent less breakage thanks to the conditioning film, versus Redken’s leading lightener without bonder.  Great news for lightener-loving clients!

Clients with highly textured hair can rock the honey and mocha hues they crave, safely, thanks to Redken Flash Lift Pods Bonder Inside. Left: hair by Redken x Mizani Brand Ambassador Leysa Carillo @leysahairandmakeup.

Coiled hair can be especially fragile, which makes Redken Flash Lift Pods Bonder Inside a welcome safeguard for fragile strands. “When lifting curls, take your time,” advises Leysa Carillo @leysahairandmakeup. “I mix a new batch of lightener every 30 minutes and take care to saturate the hair thoroughly. It’s best to use 10- or 20-volume developer and let the hair process slowly and safely. And remember, highly coiled textured hair will absorb more lightener than straighter textures, so you will probably find yourself using more product.”

No mess, no dust, no overmixing—just healthy, strong, shiny lightened hair, regardless of texture. No wonder Ramirez calls Redken Flash Lift Pods Bonder Inside a game changer!
