Review: Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine Intense

 When Her Fashion Box asked me to review the new Redken Diamond Oil* I jumped at the chance.  It promised to "turn up the shine on dull damaged hair" at the same time as strengthening and protecting and all in a silicone free formula.  After my debacle with Morocannoil which made my hair feel wonderful for the first two months and then made it all break off due to being packed full of silicones I have been very cautious with putting oils into my hair.  Until now.

As soon as I opened the package I was blown away by the bottle.  It's an absolutely stunning black glass bottle made to look like a diamond.  It has a metallic lid which unscrews to a glass medicine type dropper which gives a precise dosage with no wastage.  The oil has a very faint almost floral scent which fades quickly upon application.  My hair is to my shoulders and I dispense two drops into the palm of my hand and evenly distribute through the ends of the hair.  The shine is the first noticeable thing; the oil soaks straight into the hair and leaves a lovely natural shine without the greasy look. 
After two weeks of using this product I've noticed my hair is a lot healthier and the ends of my hair are not so dry.  I also used this product as an overnight treatment by soaking the ends of my hair with about 10-15 drops of oil and sleeping with it in and washing out in the morning which left my hair extremely soft and shiny.

Overall I'm very impressed with this product, the oil leaves my hair shiny and nourished and I know it is working from the inside out to repair my damaged ends.  

Have you tried any hair oils? I'd love to know your favourites?

  1. I love Redken, this sounds great.

    I love the Alfaparf collection that came in my Eco box, the Absolute Oil is devine.

    1. Oooh I haven't heard of that one before - sounds lovely

  2. I have the Redken all soft argan-6 oil, I think it has helped improve the condition of my coloured hair. The bottle in your post does look impressive : )

    1. It's pretty isn't it. I used to use the Redken All Soft Treatment Mask and loved it - I'm sure the oil is amazing too
