Product review: Redken Diamond Oil

Hair oil is a great way to add shine and reduce frizz, and it even helps protect against damage from hot tools! Redken Diamond Oil is known for its gorgeous bottle, but does the product live up to its hype?


Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine IntenseName this product:

Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine Intense ($40)

What the product claims to do:

Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine Intense is a concentrated leave-in hair oil for coarse or dry hair that strengthens, smooths and protects hair from breakage.

How it worked for me:

I enjoy this product. It is thick enough to add shine and get rid of frizz but doesn't weigh down my hair.

How this product looks and feels:

The bottle is a work of art — it's too pretty to store away! I love the convenience of the dropper so you don't use excess product, which is a problem I have with most hair oils.

What I liked about this product:

I loved the texture it gave my hair and that it left it with a shine that wasn't oily. It left my hair feeling smooth and less coarse.

I would recommend this product for: 

Women who deal with frizz or coarse hair or just want to add some shine to their hair. It is also great to use before blow drying and heat styling.
