Redken Acidic Bonding Shampoo and Conditioner Review
The Redken Acidic Bonding range works to improve the appearance of colour fade and damage, leaving strands with an all-over healthier look. The sulfate-free shampoo contains Citric Acid and the brand’s Concentrated Bonding Care Complex, which work to shield weakened bonds while improving hair’s strength and resiliency. It also helps to prevent future breakage, as well as smoothing and taming frizz for a more radiant finish.
Suitable for all hair types, the shampoo is formulated without sulfates to gently cleanse and remove impurities from your strands without stripping away their natural oils. It’s enriched with a blend of plant-based acids and amino acids, which help to repair strands and promote intense hydration. It’s also infused with antioxidants to protect your locks against environmental stressors and premature aging, leaving you with smooth, lustrous strands.
The sulfate-free conditioner is just as nourishing, leaving your strands with an all-over smooth and shiny finish. It’s infused with Citric Acid and the brand’s Concentrated Binding Care Complex, which work to shield strands from further damage while improving hair’s strength and resiliency. The conditioner also helps to reduce the appearance of dye fading, giving you a brighter and more vibrant finish.
The duo is sulfate-free, making it ideal for all hair types, textures and those with colour-treated tresses. The formulas are formulated without sulfates, which can be harsh on delicate strands and strip away their natural oils. Instead, the Redken acidic bonding shampoo is infused with a blend of plant-based acids, amino acids and antioxidants to gently cleanse and remove impurities without stripping your hair of its natural oils.
Unlike traditional sulfate-free shampoos, the Redken acidic bonding concentrate shampoo does contain silicones. Silicones are known to be incredibly nourishing for your strands and can provide an added boost of moisture, helping to soften, smooth and tame frizz. The shampoo does have a very light scent, which some people may find off-putting, but this can be easily rectified by using a different fragrance oil.
To use, apply a generous amount of the shampoo to wet strands and lather. Leave in for a few minutes before rinsing off. Follow with the corresponding Redken acidic bonding concentrate conditioner to complete your reparative routine. This product is safe to use daily, though we recommend using a clarifying shampoo in between treatments. The range is also eco-friendly and comes housed in recycled plastic packaging, as well as having Braille instructions to help make it more accessible for those with visual impairments. The brand has partnered with The Braille Institute to add this feature to their products, further promoting their eco-friendly ethics. The shampoo and conditioner are also cruelty-free, meaning they’re not tested on animals. This is a huge plus in our books! We love supporting brands with a cruelty-free ethos.
