Paula Kent co-founded Redken Laboratories in 1960. As a young actress in the late 1950s, when hair was highly bleached and teased, Paula was challenged with baby fine hair and sensitive skin. On set in Hollywood, she constantly experienced allergic reactions to the products used by hairdressers and makeup artists. She visited dermatologists and hairdressers to find a solution, but no one could explain to her the science behind the products.

 

In a moment of inspiration, Paula realized that she could help millions of other people who needed gentle, high-performance products – and that professional hairdressers needed to know the chemistry of hair and skin, product ingredients and their relationship to beautiful, healthy hair.

 

Using $3,000 she earned from appearing in a beer commercial, Paula Kent and her hairdresser, Jheri Redding (forming the name "REDKEN") started Redken with three products and an intensive education program for hairdressers. The formulas were developed based on three principles:

 

  • Protein technology (since hair is composed primarily of protein)

  • An acidic pH of 4.5-5.5, complementing the natural pH of the hair and skin

  • Products recommended exclusively by licensed cosmetologists in professional salons

 

With this, Paula Kent revolutionized the professional haircare industry for both stylists and clients. Her pioneering spirit is cherished and she leaves behind a legacy that sustains the brand today.

Soft oh so soft

When using this shampoo, my hair was left feeling super soft and hydrated. It does not have a overpowering scent which was good & didn’t weigh down my hair. Redken is a reliable Haircare brand, keen on trying out more of their products. I would recommend.

Damaged, dry hair

I have recently gone from very dark hair to an ash blonde and have found this an integral part of my hair care regime. This has helped me to maintain my hairs health whilst bleaching.

Love all soft

Been using all soft for years! I have greasy thin hair and find it keeps my hair cleaner for longer and also doesnt dry it out. Foams up well which is a factor for me as i like a shampoo that feels like its getting in & actually cleaning the hair. Love the smell and how it doesnt make my hair greasy after 1 wash. Would def recommend i find the price point to be very fair also in comparison to other high end shampoos.
