Hi, I thought I would do a quick post on why I love this particular product so much....mainly as I've mentioned it quite a few times.......You probably will have read other bloggers raving about this gem too. I brought mine in my local hairdressers for £17.00 but you can buy it here for £15.00! Redken Extreme Anti Snap Treatment
A couple of years ago, I decided to change my hair colour. I hadn't coloured it for quite some time...and as some of the old colour was still there, it was starting to look a bit odd.....I researched what I was after...Pinterest is a godsend! Went to the hairdressers (the same one my sister uses) and asked/pleaded that I wanted my hair to be a light brown shade..not red or blond but a light brown shade...she decided the best course of action was a half a head of highlights. I went along with it....she's a trained professional after all...but what she should have given me was low lights to reach the effect/colour I was after.....of course....when the foil came off my hair was blond...which looked okay as she blow dried it. It looked shiny and everything but the next morning....it just looked really bad and in the cold light of day I could now see it looked really dry and damaged. Couped with the fact, half of my head was still my natural dark brown shade...it looked very cheap and chavvy....as well...so that was time and money well spent NOT.....I didn't go back (although I should have complained in hindsight) because I thought they would make it worse!!
I went to another salon where they coloured my hair...but because it was blond..they had to colour it red before they could change it back to brown *arghhh. ( meaning I ended up having the two colours I didn't want after all! ) As you can imagine colouring my hair twice in as many months, my long hair took quite a bit of a battering. By chance..one day I was talking to my sister's sister-in-law (phew) who was having trouble with her hair snapping off and this was something she was using. This product is by Redken, who are a professional haircare range. If you click on the link above, you will see they sell lot of different hair ranges to cater for your hair-type/problem. This Anti-snap product is from the Extreme range a range for people with fragile hair, hair that is perhaps splitting, breaking and needs strengthen. If you bleach, you need to get on this case pronto! Straight away, after the first use, I noticed my hair was easier to manage and softer and more importantly stronger. Initially I bought the shampoo and conditioner at the same time.....although I have since switched to other shampoo's and conditioner's, I notice my hair is not the same condition if I don't use this Anti-Snap. It's really simple to use, basically after you wash/condition your hair...you apply this to towel dried hair and then leave..If you style your hair then apply style protection products and then dry, which ever method you use.
I cannot recommend this product highly enough...for me it really is one of those Holy Grail products. It does seem quite pricey but I use this about three times a week after I wash my hair and it lasts me approx five/six months. That's after using every time I wash my hair...so I think its pretty good value for money.
