Drugstore Dupe for Redken Anti-Snap

Let's chat hair care!

I've been using the Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Leave-In Conditioner for the better part of a year now. I even mentioned I stopped using it for a while, and this is definitely one of those products that you notice is missing - does that make sense? When I didn't use it, my hair was dry and kept getting tangled up, but when I do put it in, my hair is softer & silkier.

While I've had my bottle for a long time, I have to say this is a pretty expensive product. You can usually get it on some kind of offer, but the price is still around 20€. I've been trying to find a dupe for a long time, but it seemed pretty much impossible ...

Enter John Frieda.

I've used a lot of their products over the years, but somehow managed to forget about them after a while. A few weeks ago, I was sent two of their new products and the Frizz Ease Daily Miracle Leave-In Conditioner immediately caught my fancy.

This product is a little different than the Redken one. While Anti-Snap is kind of like a liquid cream with a pump, Daily Miracle is in a spray bottle and feels like thick water. You spray it on your ends (don't use too much or your hair will get crunchy), and it works a treat! I noticed it significantly cut down the time I need to dry my hair, and it made it much softer and less prone to tangles. Usually, I need to comb my hair every 2 hours because otherwise it gets these insane knots, but with this, I can easily do it 1-2 per day. A great improvement for me.

Best of all, the product only costs around 8€, which is half the price of Redken. I apply it to towel-dried hair (a small amount, way less than Redken) and either air or blow-dry.

In case you are interested, Redken has 250 ml of product, and John Frieda has 200 ml, which I'm totally fine with - I like changing up my products and had Redken not worked so well, I would've gotten tired of it at this point.

I've really been enjoying it and I would definitely recommend it if you have hair like mine - very long, prone to knots, damaged.
What is your favorite leave-in conditioner?

P.S. I am totally in love with my new background, which my father-in-law made for me, how sweet is that? I feel like a proper beauty blogger now, hehe.

  2. Redken Anti-Snap is so raved about, I've always wanted to try it! Although now I'm tempted to pick up the alternative in the form of the John Frieda Conditioner!

  3. I was just looking into Anti-Snap the other day! I love John Frieda. Such a godsend for difficult hair.

  4. I loved the Redken product, also, but the company tests on animals.... keeps bunnies eyelids open while they drop stuff in them... it's disgusting. I want a cruelty-free product.
