Redken Extreme Anti-Snap

A few years ago, I loved Victoria Beckham's 'pob' haircut so much I decided I wanted in on the action and hastily chopped off my long (but admittedly, super fried) hair. I kept this style for a while and absolutely loved it; it wasn't until halfway through last year that I decided to let my hair grow out again. As anyone trying to grow out their hair from a super short hairstyle will know, definitely easier said than done. Even now, my hair is only just past my collar bones and not in the best shape, thanks to my at-home attempts to achieve ombre hair, followed by a trip to the salon to fix said attempts (which meant my hair being dyed four or five times in one month, NOT something to be repeated!). After getting a salon dye job in July I decided to give my hair a rest by not colouring for at least the next three months. Much needed, because my hair had started to break off - quite a lot. Like I said, definitely not something to repeat.

Needless to say, I was on the lookout for a good quality product to help my overprocessed (fried) hair. After reading a ton of rave reviews, I was originally intending to invest in some Moroccan Oil. (Still want to try it out by the way.) However, I noticed one reviewer stating that the Redken Extreme Anti-Snap was even better than Moroccan Oil and much better for preventing breakage. If there's something my hair needs right now, it's definitely less breakage! So of course I had to try it. :)

Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Leave In Treatment

After I've washed my hair, I apply 3-5 pumps on my lengths and ends and then blow dry/straighten; I find that if I use this and then leave my hair to air dry, it doesn't give as nice a finish. It definitely makes the damaged ends smoother and makes your hair healthier-looking in general. As many will agree with me, though, it is definitely not a moisurizing product - finish with a serum if you need it, otherwise your ends will look rather dry. I've been using this for a few weeks now and have definitely noticed less breakage - I used to be able to literally pull the blonde ombre ends of my hair off, but they're a lot stronger now. It seems my hair is finally growing a bit as well. Another major plus: the smell is amazing, it smells fruity with a hint of vanilla. Unfortunately, the smell doesn't linger on your hair after styling, but it definitely makes getting ready in the mornings a bit more of a treat ;)
