Redken Real Control Overnight Treat



Nighttime is the perfect opportunity to feed your skin with everything its in need of. So what about your hair? Some people do hair masks or cover their hair in coconut oil but both of these options can be messy and frankly, too much effort. Something I've recently added to my nighttime pampering routine is Redken's Overnight Treat. This is another bargain I picked up in TK Maxx as it was reduced from it's RRP of £27.50 to £12.99. I've always been a fan of Redken products, especially their Blonde Glam & Extreme ranges, so I figured it'd be good to try it out.

Overnight Treat is a thick white cream that aims to renew and repair severely damaged hair while you sleep. I simply apply one pump of product to the ends of my hair, rubbing it in to all the strands, and when I wake up my hair feels really soft and looks less frizzy & damaged. When you first apply the cream it will make your hair look and feel a bit clumpy as it dries but that totally disappears by morning and you're left with lovely looking & feeling hair. It doesn't make your hair feel greasy at all and doesn't make a mess on your pillow. I just brush it out in the morning but you can wash it out and it will still help your hair. You can also apply it to damp hair but I can't stand sleeping with wet hair so I just use it when my hair is dry. As a bleach blonde, my hair needs all the help it can get. If I apply hair oils during the day I find that the ends of my hair can look greasy and overloaded with product. I now stick to just using oils when my hair is wet and use Overnight Treat to make my hair look nice when I wake up. I really like this product and its made such a difference to my dry, desperately in need of a cut, ends. Its definitely one to check out if you have dry or damaged hair.

  4. I'm pretty lucky to have healthy hair since I get it cut so often! This does sound like it works a treat, though.

  11. Think I actually need this more than I need anymore clothes right now haha! I can't afford haircuts all the time and my hair hates the autumn / winter weather! I will look out for it next time I'm in TK Maxx (instead of buying clothes haha!)
