Redken All Soft Shampoo and Conditioner

I've always drooled over Redken Products.They have been on my wishlish for quite some time. Around Christmas time I was strolling through the mall when I saw these two on sale for ten dollars. It came with a little sample of the heavy cream but I'll review that when I get my hands on the full size. The shampoo is 10.1 ounces and the conditioner is 8.5. I wish it were the other way around.

It's Claims:
Silk-Luxe Complex

Gold Camelina - Adds Luminous Shine
Avocado Oil - Provides Silky Softness
Olive Oil - Inside-Out Conditioning
Silk Amino Acid - Helps Strengthen
Advanced silkening formulas contain Redken's exclusive Interbond Conditioning System and illuminating Silk-Luxe Complex to provide dry hair with intense softness, replenishment and strength. Hair is wrapped in softness with increased manageability, movement and luminous shine.
Why It Works
Advanced silkening formulas transform the texture of dry, brittle hair
Provides intense softness, replenishment and strength
Delivers increased manageability, movement and luminous shine

So the smell is nothing to write home about. I can't pinpoint the exact scent but it's light and dissipates pretty quickly. The shampoo is a light orange color and it doesn't lather much but my hair does get pretty clean so I can't complain. This isn't the most moisturizing but it doesn't dry my hair either. I like it. So far it's one of the best shampoo's I have tried. The conditioner is nice.It's pretty thick  and concentrated but I must admit it is not the best detangling conditioner. But the reason I love these so much is no build up or silicone coated feel.And my hair ends up being incredibly soft. It's ridiculous. I get hand in hair disease with these.But although my hair is soft it isn't the most moisturizing. But that's ok. I put a separate moisturizer in anyway.

Plus my hair has been looking really shiny and healthy lately. I attribute that to this duo.
