Honest reviews


ehh save your money

Ive been using this for about 2 months and i dont really see a difference. I think this smell is horrible. Very chemical and gross. Also i believe this formula is too liquidy. Hardly a a conditioner. I shouldnt have believed all the hype and wasted $17 on this.

I LUVVVVVV Extreme Anti-Snap! LUV!

*I purchase from a beauty supply storefront locally*I’m always trying new hair products. Some are amazing (ie, Nexxus Emergencee, Coconut Oil, Paul Mitchel Moisture lines, Sebastian, Tressemme, etc), while others are epic fails (read my WEN review). Well, I LOVE LOVE LOVVVVVVVVVE this Redken Anti Snap product! I’ve used it for several years and would have an attack if Redken ever discontinued it. lol It’s a MUST-HAVE product if you bleached/highlighted/and, or, frizzy hair.I use this product after every shampoo/conditioner use.I apply Extreme Anti Snap to my towel dried hair and comb through. Follow with a tiny (tiny!!) dab of coconut oil and comb through. Then, I spritz with Tressemme’s heat protectant spray and I blow dry. I ALWAYS end up with perfectly blow dried STRAIGHT hair that looks and feels healthy and shiny and thick/full/lush, even after a full head highlight service!I often rotate my shampoos and conditioners (from high-end salon products, to less expensive drug store brands), but I ALWAYS ALWAYS use Redken Anti Snap!I’m planning to try Anti Snap+ coconut oil after using my Wen Almond Mint conditioning cleanser and Wen 6 Thirteen Conditioner, in hopes that Anti Snap can make the Wen salvageable. If Redken Anti-Snap can’t help me make Wen work, then NOTHING can. :/NOTE:I recently purchased the Redken “strengthening plus” treatment. Will be posting a review as soon as I use it. I’m hoping it’s as fabulous a product as the Anti Snap.

Great Product

I”ve been using this on my hair it seem to be working. The smell is heavenly. I bought the shampoo and conditioner so I would get the full effect but my hair deffinately seem to be getting stronger with continued use.

dont like at all

I bought this for all the amazing reviews. I don’t like it at all and will not buy again. Does not moisture. Squirts and is too watery!

Consuelo New Bloomington, OH

Mmm, smells so good!

This stuff smells amazing. I put it on my damp hair after showering and I don’t have to worry about running a brush through it and ripping my hair. A little goes a long way, so this bottle will last me a while. I love this product!

A Must Have

This product gave me amazing results. Two years ago I had the Brazilian blowout done and my hair never looked so good. The BB was supposed to last about 3 months, but it’s two years later and my curl is still gone, and now I have extremely frizzy hair, that is now broken and damaged because I have to flat iron everyday. I started using As I Am cowash, and that helped but I needed something to strengthen my hair since I have to flat iron my hair so much. I have to say that I absolutely love what this has done for my hair. I still use my heat protectant before using the flat iron for added protection but my hair now looks as good as it did when I first got the Brazilian blowout done. It’s important for anyone using this product to know that you shouldn’t use it everyday because it will actually do the opposite of what it’s supposed to do. I use it twice a week and the cowash takes care of my hair in between uses. I highly recommend this product for anyone struggling with extremely dry and damaged hair.

I wanted to use this product for awhile before leaving a review and I am glad I did. I have been dying my hair for over 10 years and about 6 months ago I bleached my hair and went a bright vampire red and the bleaching destroyed my hair. It was stretchy like a rubber band and was so bad that I thought I was going to have to shave my head. I gave this a try and I am so glad I did. Within a couple uses I could already see AND feel a difference in my hair. I would recommend cutting off as much of your hair as you can which will help your hair grow because all that dead hair will never be fully healed. This product is wonderful and I will be purchasing it again which won’t be for awhile, I use a lot and still have a ton which is great! It might seem a bit pricey for a hair product but it lasts a long time so, it’s worth it because it actually works.

Redken Extreme Anti-snap leave-in treatment

This is a great product. I am trying to grow my hair out and recently started using the Redken Extreme shampoo and conditioner at the recommendation of my hair dresser. I like them so much that I bought this leave-in conditioner as well. At the suggestion of another reviewer, I put in on the middle to the ends of my hair just before bed. I have been using it for about two weeks now and can definitely tell a difference. My hair feels heavier and softer, and looks shinier. Great buy.

Great product! It really does work to help your hair from breaking off while blow drying!

horrible waste of money

i like redken’s all-soft heavy cream conditioner so i thought getting a leave-in product from the same line would give equal results but was sadly mistaken. all this product does is make my dry hair look wet, like crunchy, out-of-the-shower, towel dried hair….why do i want this look from the 80’s? it hasn’t improved my hair at all and the smell is awful. maybe my nose is sensitive but it smelled like a mild perm solution when i first started using it. i guess i’ve gotten used to the smell since then and it now just smells like a mildly rancid lemon.i wouldn’t even mind it if it didn’t leave my hair looking wet all day, but that’s the last thing i was looking for in a product like this.

Gets the job done

If your hair is breaking and it is not from over amounts of added protein this will get the job done to stop the breakage. I would advise to lessen the usage once your hair stops breaking. I often have to stop using all together as it can have a reverse effect once the hair is better. Of course cutting your hair will always be the best solution for any type of damage but I know some people just have fine easily breakable hair. I use this after I’ve done something stupid to my hair. Works great. I don’t have the product in front of me so I can’t describe any scent but I can tell you I can smell stuff no one else smells and this does not have a lingering scent or I’d remember.

Was sceptical, but tried it on a recommendation and loved it!

I have fine, limp hair that is prone to looking greasy, so there was no way I would have even tried this product if it weren’t for a recommendation from a friend. I apply this to only the ends of my damp hair and it doesn’t leave my hair greasy or heavy at all. I was very pleasantly surprised by this. It has really helped my split ends and makes it easy to pull a brush through my hair. I don’t know if I got an odd bottle, or if they all are like this, but the stuff shoots out of the bottle like a rocket and I have more than once squirted myself, the floor, the walls and counters with it. Gotta be careful, but it works great.

I can’t tell

I’m not sure if I like this stuff yet…I just started using it so I can’t really tell you but I haven’t notice a dramatic difference. My hair I think brushes easier after I use it which I think prevents the breaking. I say it’s worth a shot if you are looking to protect against breakage!

Susan Savannah, NY


I like this product very much, it does a good job of preventing heat damage to hair. I find I am able to run the hair dryer over a section of hair 3 or 4 times with the hair dryer so close it touches the hair, no smoke or bad smell emanates from the hair. It also is extremely light weight, I have never felt like my hair was too heavy or oily after using this product. The smell is pleasant too. The only cons are that I have to use 4 pumps to feel like it has totally covered my head, this has lead me to use 30% of the bottle from December 26th to February 26th, and I wash my hair 4 times a week. Perhaps I could be more conservative and still get the same effects, but it is hard to tell how much hair is covered because the product is so light weight. .

Forgot that I had used this in my 20’s and didn’t like it

Was recently at a salon and bought a bottle because I have trouble with breakage and split ends. I like the smell, but was pretty disappointed with the performance of this product. Didn’t notice any difference after using.

Great product

I have been using this product for many years and cannot be without it. I have very fine hair and it helps with the tangles and breakage.

Fran Lester, IA

Work wonders

Excellent hair item! It makes my curly and course hair looking softer and more manageable. I’ve used Friszz Easse by John Freida and were happy with result. But Redken anti-snap expected my expectation. Whether you leave this with your damp or dry hair, it works both ways, softer and easy to shape your curls. Will order for more!

Luz Prairie Du Chien, WI

My hair is happy!!

This past New England winter has killed my hair! Frizz, breakage, it’s tired of cold weather and dry heat blowing.This stuff has broughten it’s life back! It’s smooth again and my ends look better than ever! It’s barely breaking even though the winter hasn’t let up yet, but this stuff has made my hair better than before! ….and it smells amazing too!

Love this treatment

I love this treatment. It works so well with my hair, and it always feels so moisturized and soft after I use it. What a difference! It’s a conditioning and a protein treatment all in one! LOVE!

Hannah Oklahoma City, OK

Love Redkin

This is the best leave in treatment I have ever used. It leaves my hair manageable, soft, and shiny. I would recommend this to anyone who has dry hair from hot tools.

Ramona Eastview, KY

The best leave-in treatment ever!

I tried so many leave-in treatment and come back for this one always! I use it before drying my hair and it makes the hair really soft.

Stacie Hydetown, PA

Excellent Conditioner

This is a great conditioner for anyone what has any type of damaged hair. Within a couple of treatments hair is stronger and less frizzy.
