Prep and Shine: One United 

Redken’s One United is a vegan, paraben-free, and sulfate-free multi-benefit treatment spray, created for every hair type and texture to prep, protect, and perfect hair instantly.

With 25 benefits focused on manageability, protection, and hair health, One United is an easy product to layer into any hair routine. Formulated with Redken’s powerhouse Cationic Complex, including Xylose, Lactic Acid, and Coconut oil, you can count on One United to condition, moisturize, detangle, and add shine without weighing strands down. 

How To Use: 

  • Alone: Apply after cleansing or to refresh hair between washes.
  • With a rinse-out treatment: Apply after cleansing and before rinse-out treatment.
  • With a leave-in treatment: Layered after cleansing. 
  • With a styling product: Apply before or after styling.

Pro Tip: When layering products, always apply the lightest product first, which is typically One United. 

Hair Styling: Quick Blowout

Redken’s Quick Blowout is a lightweight blow dry primer spray that helps deliver an effortless blowout every time. Once shaken, Quick Blowout’s flash-drying bi-phase formula with Lactic Acid conditions hair for a silky-smooth blowout. Plus, it offers heat protection up to 450F. Made for all hair types and textures, this is a great product to layer into any finishing routine to ensure hair is protected with added shine. 

Pro Tip: "I love this product for effortless waves. Mist roots to ends and braid the left and right sides. Then diffuse then unravel braids for natural texture." - Sam Villa (@samvillahair), Redken Global Artistic Ambassador

How To Use:

  • Shake well before use and spray on damp hair lengths and ends.
  • Brush through and blow dry and style hair as usual.

Texture: Spray Wax 

Creating undone texture has never been easier, thanks to Redken’s Spray Wax. This medium-control hairspray delivers a tousled look with a satin-matte finish. Formulated with a Micro-Wax Complex, Spray Wax is infused with Glycerin and Vitamin E to deposit a unique combination of fixing polymers and emollients for a wax-like finish without the waxy feel. It’s ideal for creating separation and layered looks with volume.

Pro Tip: “I love using Spray Wax to create a messy bun by spraying on to the roots of the hair then gathering into a voluminous bun with a textured effect.” - Sam Villa (@samvillahair), Redken Global Artistic Ambassador

How To Use:

  • Shake well. Mist on damp or dry hair.
  • Shape into desired style with hands.

Volume: Root Lifter

Redken’s Root Lifter is the secret weapon stylists need for fuller, more voluminous hairstyles. Ideal for fine or thin hair, Root Lifter is a vegan formula that provides lift directly to the roots for body and volume that lasts all day with medium control. Enriched with Wheat Protein and Vitamin E, this volumizing spray foam utilizes lifting polymers and conditioning agents for an instant lift with a bouncy, natural feel.

How To Use:

  • Apply foam on towel-dried hair.
  • Blow-dry for maximum volume.

Hairspray: Control Hairspray

Redken’s Control Hairspray offers everything you need in a high-control hairspray without any of the stickiness or stiffness. Suitable for all hair types, Control Hairspray is a vegan formula featuring Redken’s Spray-Strong Complex, which provides a weightless, brushable finish, and protection from heat damage. Enriched with Vitamin B5, Control Hairspray utilizes a balanced blend of two holding polymers to provide all-day control. This formula is fast-drying with 24-hour control and humidity resistance, providing superior hold without residue or flaking.  

Pro Tip: “I love to use Control Hairspray by simply spraying on a large tooth comb to comb out a large barrel iron set to create a wavy textured undone look for lasting memory.” - Sam Villa (@samvillahair), Redken Global Artistic Ambassador

How To Use:

  • Hold 6-12 inches away and spray on dry, styled hair.
