I'm a cosmetologist and work in a redken focused salon. I only really recommend this for me, because this is definitely not a color safe shampoo. That being said, this product is loved by most men! My husband loves it and loves how it makes his head feel clean. He says it tingles (mostly probably because the menthol). I would recommend this to most men for sure! And I advise if you do buy, buy it from a salon or somewhere like Sallys. most places like drug stores and places like walmart are not the real thing, and they can further damage your hair and just get more build up on it.
