Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but hair is a woman’s crown and glory.
I was excited when REDKEN reached out to me for a review of yet another amazing product: NEW Diamond Oil Collection, which is specifically designed for dull/dry/damaged hair — and promises to strengthen hair 3Xs and give 2X more shine.
Redken Creative Consultant Guido tells us how to achieve some of the upcoming fall season’s most captivating, dark and cinematic-inspired hair looks using the Diamond Oil line. Read all about it —> HERE!
I love REDKEN and gave my hair a 3-day no product/washing break, in order to fully test it. Just from sleeping, constant touching, picking at my hair… it gets frizzy, dull and TANGLED – with zero shine!
When I saw that REDKEN’s Diamond Oil line is infused with well, oil, I hoped that my hair would get the TLC it so desperately needed.

Featuring REDKEN‘s exclusive new Shine Strong Complex (infused with a blend of apricot, camelina and coriander oils), my hair not only smelled amazing, but the shampoo process alone left me hair feeling softer to the touch (usually I have to wait until I deep condition for this to happen).
Diamond Oil gives your hair that multifaceted shine! This line includes a: Shampoo ($18.00) Conditioner ($19.00), Deep Facets Oil Enriched Intensive Treatment ($20.00) and two silicone-free oils: Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine ($40.00; which I used) and the Shatterproof Shine INTENSE ($40.00) both comprised of 99% natural oils.
Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine can be used as a pre-shampooing treatment overnight, blended with the mask or conditioner before blow-drying or on dry hair. Packaged in a glass bottle, the unique dropper is specially designed to dispense oil one drop at a time for a perfect dosage — non-greasy, yet full of shine.
I washed my hair as usual, then applied golf ball-sized amount (I have a lot of hair) of the Deep Facets Intensive Treatment, leaving it in for 15-minutes.
My hair instantly detangled, not needing much conditioner, which is good given that this bottle (8.5 oz) is slightly smaller than the Shampoo (10.1 oz); I also tend to use double the conditioner to shampoo ratio.
Finally, I used two droppers full of the Shatterproof Shine by rubbing the oil in my hands to activate and then smoothed on my wet hair. This is great for reducing frizz — my nemesis! I didn’t need or use any other styling product, just the Shatterproof Shine!
Shatterproof Shine can also be used on skin, scalp; it can also be used as a pre-coloring treatment in the salon.
