Redken Diamond Oil Haircare

Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine has been one of those  awaited beauty products since it's debut backstage at fall fashion week in February. It's finally here  , part of a whole  Diamond Oil haircare  line including shampoo and conditioner.  One thing for certain is the oil itself is in the prettiest  bottle for haircare yet. It looks more like perfume and could stay out on the vanity .

This whole line is meant for  damaged hair to give intense hydration and repair  as well as maximum shine. 

All products have Redken's exclusive new Shine Strong Complex, infusing a "nourishing blend of natural apricot, camelina and coriander oils into different layers of hair to maximize shine and strength."

Interestingly Redken says "the coriander oil forms a protective barrier on the surface of the hair, locking out humidity and harmful elements while reducing the hair’s exposure to friction while combing, brushing, and styling." Sounds good.

Diamond Oil, the whole line as you might guess is highly moisturizing.  There are 2 Shatterproof Shine oil versions, one for medium hair and an  Intense for coarse hair. Both are  silicone-free and comprised of 99% natural oils. I can say that  out of the few hair oils I've tried ( and it's only been a few as I generally don't need them much) Diamond Oil is by far the most moisturizing.  Neat note- the product is dispensed via a glass eyedropper.

It's  super conditioning to ends and can be used on wet or dry hair, as an overnight leave in or pre- shower deep treatment.

 The shampoo and conditioner do a good job of giving you soft hair without weighing it down a lot. I expected  that my normal with a few dry spots hair might be overwhelmed using both products and while it was more moisture than I needed my hair looked good. Overall I still think using  either the Diamond Oil shampoo or conditioner with another less intensive product will work best for me.

There is also a thick deep conditioner in a tub, Deep Facets,  which will benefit those with the driest or most damaged hair.
