Find in Store-

Hydrate Air Dry Cream is a no blow dry, air dry cream for heatless styling with a flawless finish. Perfect for low maintenance, effortless style. AirDry technology and AntiFade complex provides fast dry time, enhanced body, frizz control with a no product feel and colour radiance protection.
To minimize friction and reduce frizz, use a soft cotton t-shirt to gently blot dry clean hair until at least 50% dry. Follow with Hydrate Air Dry Cream for best results. For an even distribution of product, apply Hydrate Air Dry Cream first to your densest areas. Start at the back of the head (where you have the most hair), then apply to the sides, and lastly sparingly around the hairline. Apply Hydrate Air Dry Cream down the hair shaft keep to the cuticle smooth and polished. By doing this, you will have a frizz-free shiny result once hair is dried!

    I received a sample to try. I liked the fact that it was vegan, but I didn't notice too much of a difference after using it. Given the price point, I'm not sure I'd buy it.

    Comments about Pureology Hydrate Air Dry Cream:

    I received samples of this product to try out. I was hopeful because I've used and loved several other Pureology products. I didn't care for the strong, cologne-like fragrance of this product and it made my roots heavy and greasy. I ended up washing my air again because of the fragrance and the greasy feeling of my hair. I won't use it again.

      Comments about Pureology Hydrate Air Dry Cream:

      His is a great product! It really helps to control frizz and hold a style. I normally straighten my hair, but on those days when I just want to get out of the shower and put my hair in a ponytail, it normally is frizzy and crazy within an hour. This stuff really helps to control that. It smells good, doesn't feel greasy or heavy and is easy to use. I will definitely buy this product in the future!
      I received this product as a free sample from Pureology.

        I really like this product. I have coarse, thick, frizzy hair and this stuff really tames it. I don't always have time to straighten or style my hair and when I don't, I just put in some of this cream and it controls the frizz and tames my hair. It smells great, doesn't feel greasy or heavy and works great! It can't be beat!

            I received this product for free to try out. I have thick/course wavy hair that takes over 30 minutes to blow dry. I am always on the look out for hair products that reduce the time it takes for my hair care routine. Pureology's hydrate air dry cream works wonderfully it helps reduce my frizz and define my waves a little. Warning a little goes a long way. I just put a little in my damp hair scrunch it a little and go. It smells great. The only reason i did not give it 5 stars is i am a little disappointed that it did not help reduce volume (which most people probably love but i have too much volume).

                Comments about Pureology Hydrate Air Dry Cream:

                I love this stuff. I have combo hair that I'd oily at the roots but also incredibly frizzy when I air dry. I hate heat styling, so this stuff is perfect. The smell is fantastic. It is an herbal smell like that of Aveda. My hair does not get weighed down or extra greasy like some defrizzers can do. It's very soft and silky. This should not replace any normal conditioners you use though as its a styling cream and not a leave in conitioner. Very happy with this.

                I received this product as part of a promotion from the brand.This product is good for making hair seem fuller. the smell is very strong, and doesn't smell the greatest. It's very light weight and a little bit goes a long way!! I would use it for a wash and go style.

                Comments about Pureology Hydrate Air Dry Cream:

                I received a few free samples of Hydrate Air Dry Cream from Pureology to try and review. I would give this product more of a 3.5 since I liked it the more I used it after comparing it to other products. If you're a super low maintenance gal who needs to get out of the door in 5 minutes, I think this would be a great product to have on hand. With that being said, this product may only work for those with more normal, dryish hair. I have bleached platinum blonde hair which is super damaged and this product does almost nothing for me. I can see that it did tame frizz down a bit and did a little softening, but I have other products that do a better job of making hair dry faster and look healthier. I can see this working for other ladies but this one is just not for me.

                  Comments about Pureology Hydrate Air Dry Cream:

                  I got this product to try in exchange for an honest review. This review is 100% mine:

                  I would compare this product to another company out there that has a BBCream for hair. The concept is to add moisture and frizz control without weighing down your hair. The short of it is that this product does just what it says it does, it moisturizes without weighing down your hair. It doesn't require heat and tools to tame the frizz. And, it's definitely not greasy at all.

                  I rec'd a few small packets of what I would presume would be an appropriate amount for one use per packet. However, I have longer, thicker hair. When I tried one nickel-size dose it was not nearly enough for my hair. When I used 2 packets I got better results. So, like any other hair product, one size does not fit all.

                  The smell is unique. I don't really have an opinion of like or dislike. I do like that it's not perfume-y, but it's not a fresh clean smell. It's unique. So, smell before you buy.

                  In summary: Non-greasy, good frizz control, no heat necessary, more than recommended amount to get desired results, unique smell. Definitely worth the try, would take me more than a sample pack to make a final love/hate decision.

                      I typically flat iron my hair, if I don't I have a frizzy mess! This is a great product that leaves my hair flexible and natural looking. It smells great and reduces styling time greatly!
