Redken Protein Pick Me Up
If you’re a heated-tool addict, or an exercise fiend who’s constantly showering, meaning your wet-to-dry/up-to-down hair ratio is off the scale, this is the protein shake to your weight training. Pumping strands with a whack of keratin and a trio of proteins that target the root, core and tip of the hair (each area suffers differently), the mask comes in a regular- and mega-dose format. Or, if things are really bad and your stylist bills your hair ‘chemically distressed’, they’ll add an extra 15ml ‘Shot Phix’ to rebalance your hair’s pH levels after all the bleach and bad stuff to bulletproof your blow-out the right way. See – shots make everything better.
JUSTIFY IT You need food to fuel and repair your muscles post workout, and the same goes for your hair. It might be dead, but the gaps in the cuticle can be filled.
WHEN TO GET IT When your hair starts to feel dry, coarse and crispy when you style it, and before you start getting mistaken for Worzel Gummidge at work.
