RedKen Smooth Down Heat Glide


A picture of RedKen Smooth Down Heat Glide
Did you know, I am a fully trained hair dresser? Yup. It's true. I am. I used to run the hair side of a hair and beauty salon, too. But alas, I decided it wasn't what I wanted to do forever more and I wanted to go back to College, gain my A Levels and then go on to University, which I did. But when I worked in the salon I was trained in and used on a daily basis, RedKen. 


RedKen is such a great brand and one I would use for all of my hair's needs, if I could afford it. But, it is also an expensive brand so not one I can really afford to be indulging in. However very recently I came across the website Feel Unique and what did I happen to find on there? My favourite RedKen product of all.

Naturally my hair is wavy/curly and I straighten it most days. My hair is also naturally oily so I have to be careful what products I use. With RedKen Smooth Down Heat Glide, I apply either to towel dried hair or dry hair, to the mid-lengths to ends, avoiding the root area, and smoothing through. This product leaves my hair silky smooth, feeling gorgeous, and as straight as anything! There's nothing I don't love about this product! And to add to the reasons why I love this product, it lasts forever! Literally all you need is a tiny pump each time!

  2. Ooo, I might have to try this when I've got some pennies spare, I never used to straighten my hair but seem to be doing it a lot lately so a product to give it a helping hand would be super useful! When I went blonde I used anti-snap ( I think thats the name) and it was my saviour and lasted AGES - so if it's anywhere near as good quality as that it'll be worth saving up for :) xoxo

    1. Yes, it is anti-snap :) The repair range from RedKen is fab! But this has always been my absolute favourite product xo

  3. hey again! great post, I may actually try this product. I have just been using the shampoo, conditioner and Argan-6 oil from the All Soft range, have you tried any of them? Not sure what to think of them really! I think using them all combined made my hair a bit greasy but I've had Redken used on my hair at salons and seriously loved them then! xx

    1. I have used all the ranges when I was working in the salon and the All Soft range is definitely one of my favourites. But overall, Smooth Down was my favourite off all the ranges. The thing will all RedKen products is you really have to use a little. It goes a long way and often if you use too much it will have an undesirable effect! xo

  4. My friend used to have a few things from this brand for her very thick, unruly curly hair - I always wondered about the brand as I'd never heard of them, except that she thought they were really good. Nice to hear a bit more about them!!

    1. Feel Unique is definitely a great website to find RedKen on. There's not a huge price difference but enough to justify it! xo

  11. This is by far one of my favorite RedKen products but I always have so many problems finding it in the states :( I do tend to stock up when I do!

    I just wanted to come visit and follow along because I really related to your reply over on the blog post about the #bbloggers hashtag! It was like you took the words right out of my mouth!

    Excited to be a new follower :)
