Hi Ladies & Gentlemen,

May I pick your brains please, because you lot seem know what you're talking about.

Does this Redken product contain 18-MEA?

Ingredients: Water, Behentrimonium Chloride, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Elaeis Guineensis Oil/Palm Oil, Isopropyl Alcohol, Parfum/Fragrance, Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Octyldodecanol, Methylparaben, Citric Acid, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein Pg-Propyl Silanetriol, Arginine, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, 2-Oleamido-1,3-Octadecanediol, Chlorhexidine Dihydrochloride, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Quaternium-33, Benzyl Benzoate, Limonene, Phenoxyethanol, Linalool, Ci 42090/Blue 1, Ci 17200/Red 33


I have highlighted the ingredient which are ceramides but not sure what might be 18-MEA.

EDIT: I have since discovered that Quaternium-33 is 18-MEA.

By the way, this treatment is incredible, best protein mask I've ever used.

I'm interested in products with 18mea as well and was looking at this same redken product in ulta wondering what other names 18mea goes by! Is it high enough on the ingredient list to be effective??

I have no idea if it is high enough but what I will say is my hair behaved differently from the very first time I used this treatment. I'd like to believe it is the addition of the ceramides and 18-MEA but it could just be the base formula. I'd definitely recommend it and I plan to continue using it.
