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!

        Received a sample for use from Pureology in exchange for review: loved the smell. I have thick wavy hair that I usually don't blow dry and I found this to help with my frizz. I could use this everyday.

        Comments about Pureology Hydrate Air Dry Cream:

        I received this product free from Buzz Agent. I tried it after my shower last night. I just towel dried my hair and rubbed this stuff all over. I have very long hair and I only needed a small amount. Right off the bat, I enjoyed the smell and feel (my fiance` found the scent to be overpowering and sat on the other side of the couch all night). Once the hair air dried, I think the smell dissipated a bit. This product left my hair feeling soft & smooth. I am a big fan of letting my hair air dry, and most times it will become dry and brittle. This product prevented that. It is the next day and I still feel silky smooth and it has a soft pleasant scent! I also felt like it gave my hair more body than usual. It doesn't feel gunky like other products might (I personally hate using hair products). I am able to brush my hair as normal and not feel any gunk! Definitely will be using again!

          This product is amazing. I have been searching for over a decade, trying to find a product that would tame my frizz while letting my waves be free. I've tried Bumble and Bumble, Living Proof, DevaCurl, etc. You name it, I've tried it. Nothing works. Granted, I have very difficult hair. It's frizzy and kinky and wavy and messy looking. I've grown accustomed to styling it with heat out of necessity. But this product takes the cake. It truly maintained my frizz. Like wow, I never thought that was possible. I put a ton of product in, but it feels light. I would absolutely recommend this product if you are sick and tired of styling your hair, but you also have frizzy, thick, wavy, and unruly hair.

                I love this stuff. I hate taking a lot of time with my hair, but I still want it to look nice. This cream does the trick. It doesn't take much, and when my hair is dry it's wavy, shiny and healthy looking. This one's a winner.

                  Comments about Pureology Hydrate Air Dry Cream:

                  It does what it says. It got 4 stars because it worked. However...

                  The smell is not bad, but not something I want in my hair. It smells like a nice masculine cologne- which smells great on a man but I don't want my hair to smell like it though lol. But if a product works I can get past the smell.

                  I felt like i need to use quite a bit to get any dramatic results. This is just to expensive for the amount I need to use . All my other Pureology products [currently using the Strength Cure Line] are great and a little goes a long way so I was surprised with this air dry cream. I do have extra long hair but I've tried living proof in shower styler and used half the amount this requires.

                  It does add texture, bouncy waves and shine to my hair on days I don't feel like blow drying or using any heat styling. It did nothing for frizz though.

                  I will not buy it again because its to expensive for what you get versus the amount i needed for results and it smells like mens cologne. I'll stick with living proof in shower styler- which smells fantastic btw!

                  This stuff works, but the smell is awful. It's a combination of stale cigarettes, body odor, and old lady perfume. Considering the cost of these products, this is unacceptable. Seriously, Pureology, change the formula!
