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.
