How Oil works on hair by Redken Diamond Oil

diamond oil homepage

What hair types is Diamond Oil recommended for? 

Diamond Oil is perfect for all types of dull/damaged hair. Shatterproof Shine is an extremely versatile product that can be paired with any of the product ranges within the Redken haircare portfolio for added shine and strength.


How does the Diamond Oil range protect hair from mechanical damage?
Diamond Oil
provides nourishment, conditioning and strength to the cortex, fortifying the hair from within. Simultaneously, natural oils form a protective barrier on the surface of the hair, locking out humidity and harmful elements, and reducing the hair’s exposure to friction while combing, brushing, etc


If oil remains on the surface of the hair, won’t it make hair greasy and weigh it down?
The natural oil that resides on the surface of the hair, coriander oil, seals the cuticle in a lightweight but powerful veil of moisture and shine. It provides protection against mechanical damage without feeling or appearing greasy or heavy


How do different types of oils penetrate the hair shaft while others sit on the cuticle?
Oils contain a mixture of fatty chains which are all different length and sizes. Oils with a high content of small fatty chains penetrate into the cortex of the hair while oils that contain a high content of large fatty chains tend to lay on the surface of the hair fiber.


Is this shampoo for everyday use? I have heard that shampooing everyday can lead to dull hair.
It is safe to use Diamond Oil shampoo daily, as it is formulated with oils and ingredients rich in nourishing and conditioning agents to ensure your hair is shiny and protected.


Are there any silicones in the Shatterproof Shine Oil?
No, Shatterproof Shine Oil contains no silicones and is comprised of 99% natural oils.


What are the differences between Diamond Oil and All Soft and Extreme lines?
Diamond Oil is specially designed for consumers with dull hair that has been damaged through every day wear and tear. Cuticles are frayed and the internal structure is compromised. The Diamond Oil regimen infuses oil on all three layers of the hair, and strengthens with IPN, to enhance shine and protect against future damage.

All Soft is especially designed for consumers with dry and/or brittle hair looking to help restore hair’s softness, shine and elasticity and to keep it deeply conditioned. All Soft nourishes hair’s protein, comprised of keratin, to restore moisture, smooth the surface and provide intense replenishment for resilient flexibility, durable softness and inside-out conditioning.

Extreme is especially designed for consumers with distressed hair looking to strengthen and repair. Extreme brings protein to the core of the hair fiber restoring internal strength, rebuilding surface protection and helping to prevent breakage through IPN and the Fortifying Complex (qualified as a regimen tested for strengthening).


What is the main difference between Argan-6 multi-care oil and Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine?
The silicones in Argan-6 multi-care oil offer great shine and feel on hair, and their effect is mostly cosmetic. The oils in the silicone-free Shatterproof Shine formulas offer shine along with repairing benefits due to their penetration into the hair fiber. 


Is Diamond Oil safe for use on color-treated hair?
Like all Redken haircare ranges, Diamond Oil is safe for use on color-treated hair, and will not lead to fading or distortion. 


Does Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine provide heat protection?
No, but application of heat to hair with a styling instrument (i.e. flat iron) usually results in better distribution of the oils and an enhanced cosmetic effect. 


What is the Shine Strong Complex?
Exclusive to Diamond Oil, the Shine Strong Complex is a combination of coriander, camelina and apricot oils, and IPN. Coriander oil resides on the surface of the hair, sealing the cuticle to lock in strength and shine. Camelina and apricot oils fill the gaps in the intra cellular cement and penetrate to the core to increase luminosity from the inside out. IPN reinforces the hair with strengthening protein.   


What is IPN?
The Interlock Protein Network is Redken Haircare’s delivery system containing Keralink, amino acids and proteins to improve formula efficacy, help rebuild surface protection and strengthen hair to the core. 


Why is IPN not included in Shatterproof Shine?
IPN is in the ShampooConditioner, and Deep Facets formulas. IPN is not in Shatterproof Shine as the formula is 99% oils, and IPN is not soluble in oil. 


Will Shatterproof Shine cause irritation on the scalp? 
Shatterproof Shine Intense can be safely applied to the scalp. The nourishing formula provides soothing moisturization to scalp and hand skin, as well as dry nails and cuticles.
