As part of the Redken acidic bonding concentrate system, the shampoo is a sulfate-free formula that’s infused with citric acid and the brand’s Bonding Care Complex to help improve the health and strength of damaged strands for better manageability.

For best results, use as a pre-shampoo on wet hair, lather, leave in for 5-10 minutes, and then rinse. Follow with the Acidic Bonding Concentrate Conditioner for a smooth and soft finish and to deliver long-lasting results.

To use the Redken acidic bonding concentrate leave-in, apply a small amount of the product on to your clean, towel-dried hair. Focusing on the mid-lengths and ends, gently massage the product into the hair using a comb or brush, paying close attention to any damaged areas. Leave the hair in for a minute, and then rinse thoroughly to remove any excess.

For maximum benefits, it’s recommended that you use the Redken acidic bonding concentrate as part of the complete 4-step system, alongside the intensive pre-treatment, shampoo, conditioner and conditioning leave-in treatment. For optimal results, use the products once a week at home, as well as 1-2 times per week at the salon. For an at-home care routine, you can also use a weekly protein mask that’s available from Redken to help boost the strength of your hair.
