Redken was founded by Paula Kent. Redken has revolutionized the entire professional hair care industry for both stylists and customers. Paula Kent's interest in science and great dedication made it possible for Redken to become the powerful brand it is today.
Paula Kent founded Redken together with Jehri Redding in 1960. Jehri Redding was both a hairdresser and a chemist and he had previously developed products with a low PH value for Paula Kent's hair. In 1965, however, Paula Kent bought out Jehri Redding and continued to drive Redken herself.
Redken goal was to provide a scientific approach to beauty and made a revolution in professional hair care by launching the concept of proteinkonditionering and the development of protein-derived hair care products. Protein is very important for hair because hair is largely made up of long protein threads and shampoo and Stylingredskap (straightener, hair dryer, etc.) can damage the protein in the hair. Hair care products that contain protein make the hair healthy and get better texture and healthy luster. Thanks to Redken amazing ideas with protein in hair care products so increased Redken sales tremendously and already in 1966 was the annual sales up at 1.5 million dollars.
