To use Redken’s Acidic Bonding Concentrate Hair Care Line effectively, follow these steps:
- Pre-Shampoo Treatment (Optional): The Acidic Bonding Concentrate Hair Care Line may include a pre-shampoo treatment. If it’s part of your set, apply the pre-shampoo treatment to dry hair before washing. Follow the instructions on the product for the correct application method and processing time. This step is optional and can be skipped if you don’t have the pre-shampoo treatment.
- Shampooing: Start with the Acidic Bonding Concentrate Shampoo. Wet your hair thoroughly, then apply an appropriate amount of shampoo to your scalp and hair. Massage gently to create a lather, paying attention to the roots and any areas with product buildup. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.
- Treatment Application: After shampooing, it’s time to apply the Acidic Bonding Concentrate Treatment. Squeeze out excess water from your hair so that it’s damp, but not dripping. Section your hair to ensure even application.
- Treatment Application (contd.): Follow the instructions on the product packaging for the treatment application. Generally, you’ll apply the treatment from roots to ends, making sure to distribute it evenly throughout your hair. Leave the treatment on for the recommended processing time (usually around 5-10 minutes).
- Rinse Thoroughly: After the recommended processing time, rinse your hair thoroughly with cool water until all the product is washed out.
- Conditioning: Follow up with the Acidic Bonding Concentrate Conditioner. Apply it to your hair, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends, where your hair is usually more damaged. Leave the conditioner on for a couple of minutes to allow it to work its magic.
- Final Rinse: Rinse out the conditioner with cool water. The cool water helps seal the cuticles, promoting shine and reducing frizz.
- Drying and Styling: Gently pat your hair with a towel to remove excess water. Avoid rubbing your hair, as this can cause frizz and damage. Let your hair air dry whenever possible to minimize heat damage. If you need to use heat styling tools, apply a heat protectant product beforehand.
- Leave-In Treatment (Optional): The Acidic Bonding Concentrate Hair Care Line may also include a leave-in treatment. If you have it, follow the instructions on the product for the correct application method and styling tips.
- Regular Use: For the best results, incorporate the Redken Acidic Bonding Concentrate Hair Care Line into your regular hair care routine. Consistent use of the products can help strengthen and repair damaged hair over time.
As with any hair care products, it’s essential to read and follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer. If you have specific hair concerns or are unsure about the suitability of these products for your hair type, consider consulting a professional hairstylist for personalized advice.
