Redken is an American brand, found in 1960 and owned by L’Oreal. It was set up by actress Paula Kent and hairdresser Jheri Redding, hence the name Redken was born. Paula found that many of the styling products irritated her sensitive skin and wanted to find something more suitable for her skin. The Redken range aims to complement the natural pH balance of the hair and skin, based on feedback from professionals and make use of protein technology – as this is what hair is mainly composed of.
