About my hair:
Texture: Curly in the front and wavy in the back
Thickness: Super duper thin
Length: Medium - below the shoulder
Color: dark ash brown
The Product: Redken Iron Shape 11 ($30 cDN)
The number 1 ingredient in this thermal spray is alcohol - which was a little surprising; I expected it to be water. Alcohol - although a great ingredient to hold a style, can be very drying to the hair. Now onto the claims! Here's what the Redken Iron Shape 11 claims to do:
- Provide medium control spray
- Protects and repair
- Locks in heat styles
- Adds a smooth, shiny finish
Where to begin - I gave this heat spray a good trial run over a few weeks. I first sprayed my hair generously, but it left my hair crunchy. Then I tried to lightly spray, and I had the same result. This occurred with both dry and wet hair. After applying heat to the hair, it left it crispy, and with no movement. I didn't find the product conditioning at all - but rather drying over all.
As for the actual hold - sure it does hold a style - but it doesn't allow for much movement to the hair. I personally did not find much of a different using this product and just heat styling my hair with no product at all.
I have not one good thing to say about this one - I wish I could return it. But it's one of those things that I just forgot about - so at this point it's likely to get tossed. I generally like Redken products - for the diversity and the quality - but this one was a total fail for me.
