Looking to explore your Redken options? Try out their Extreme Hair Care collection. Through the Interlock Protein Network, a new delivery system that brings protein to the core of the hair fiber, and the Fortifying Complex, Redken's Extreme line rebuilds and restores the internal strength of each hair fiber. I tried out the Extreme Shampoo, Extreme Conditioner and Extreme Anti-Snap Leave-in Treatment. After using the set on my hair this morning I definitely have to say that my hair looks less "distressed!"

Here's a little more information about each of these products:

Extreme Shampoo: Provides a rich, abundant lather that gently cleanses, restores strength and adds shine.
How it works: After applying the shampoo to your client's hair the Interlock Protein Network and Fortifying Complex delivers protein and ceramide to help fortify weakened areas of hair, reinforcing the surface of each hair strand. Hair will feel softer and fluffier as a result.

Extreme Conditioner: Detangles and restores strength to hair leaving it supple and resilient. I found that when using this conditioner though, you have to use twice as much as you would usually use. As long as you coat all the hair and leave it on for a couple minutes, it will do the job.
How it works: (same process as shampoo.)

Extreme Anti-Snap: This product is formulated to provide heat protection and help protect against breakage and split ends. Apply this product to towel-dried hair to fragile and damaged areas. Do not rinse out. I found that the formula doesn't weight your hair down, it's a generally good detangler, it's easy to apply and it doesn't clump. My recommendation is not to use it everyday (only for very damaged strands) and to use only a dime to a quarter size amount (depending on hair's length).
How it works: (same process as shampoo and conditioner.)
