I use Redken hair cleansing cream probably once every 10 days or so to get rid of hair spray build up, and what ever else. When I first purchased it about 2 years ago, it was a 'mistake', not what I had intended to buy. Used it and found that my hair styled so much easier and felt better to touch. Have not been without it since. A little dab will do the job. I some times will actually shampoo with my regular shampoo right after cleansing because I feel it helps with styling as well. Its a science!
