Redken Radiant Sea Spray Review

Quite a while ago, I picked up the Redken Radiant Sea Spray at the suggestion of my stylist, Lori.

The Website Claims:
This spray is supposed to add texture as well as time-touch fragrance capsules that burst open with oceanic scent when the hair is touched. Safe for color treated hair.

The Ingredients are:
Sea Algae – Protects
Soy Protein – Replenishes
Aloe Vera – Moisturizes
Oceanic Calone – Fragrance

Price:
$12 for 3.4 oz at Amazon.com, available at Ulta & salons as well.

Does it live up to its claims?
Yes! The scent on this product is very clean, it reminds me of clean cotton or linen or something.  I’m usually not a clean cotton person when it comes to scents but I really like this one in my hair! Lori said it was perfect for after you’d been out at the club, if you had smoke or something lingering in your hair you could just spritz this in, run your hands through your hair, and you’d be cleaned up. It does a really good job with the scent. The texture it gives my straight hair is ok, as it applies as a fine mist when I spritz it on and I can then scrunch my hair or rake my fingers through my hair and shake it a bit to utilize the spray.

Would I purchase again?
Probably. Overall, I really like the scent and the texture is nice in my hair. I think the price is reasonable for me for the amount of product you get, though obviously the price varies wildly by where you purchase it. I think the concept is really neat with the touch-release scent, and I’d like to see more products like this.

Have you tried the Redken Radiant Sea Spray? Or is there another hair product like this one that you prefer?

Product purchased by me. All opinions are my own.

      Ooooh! I must try this! Redken is my hands-down fav haircare line! JF used to have a sea spray that I liked, but it was discontinued a few years back.

        I have a lot of Redken products because the salon I go to is a Redken salon, but I’m not always a fan of Redken products. I do like their hairspray specifically for humidity (which I should probably review), and their wax blast , along with 2 of the Sea line products. But the majority of the products that I like are Tigi/Bedhead.

      I completely read the title of this as “Redneck Radiant Sea Spray” in my blog roll – I obviously need to drink my coffee a bit faster or make it stronger!
      I’m going to have to pick some of this up though, sounds like something that would be good to have a back up of in the car, as well.

      I’m not sure exactly what this is: is it supposed to give you hold at all, or just texture?

      • Phyrra

        It give you a bit of texture & it gives you scent.

      Have you ever heard of “Not Your Mother’s”? It’s a relatively new brand, but I’m already in love with it! You should give it a shot. :) I love their texturizing spray, it’s my favorite.

      • Phyrra

        I’ll have to check them out!

      You know, I fail at using dry shampoo, maybe I could use this to at least make my hair SMELL clean in between washes!!

        The only one that works for me is Batiste.

      I love the Redken Naturals line. The shampoo is the same scent and is sulfate free. And, the conditioner does a good job of detangling and isn’t too heavy.

        I’m a huuuuge sulfate free fan.

      I got the spousal equivalent the scrubby stuff and he loved it. I had to try it myself and I was pretty impressed. xSparkage did a review on it and I totally agree! I love scrubs anyways but this was just too much, lol. It was kind of fun scrubbing my hair. Now I’ll have to go back and try this too! I bet it will be great for the summer time.
