          Comments about Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer:

          I was so excited to try this product, I heard so many good things. First off, the smell is AWFUL. It reminds me of perfume that has gone bad, like a syrupy sweet smell. I tried this product with different shampoo/conditioner combos, I tried using only 3-4 sprays, I tried using it on it's own without my normal Paul Mitchell serum at the ends, nothing worked. I could feel how greasy and sticky my hands were from this product after blowdrying, and my hair never looked clean. It made my hair look dull and weighed down. Returned it after a couple of uses. Too bad!

            I couldn't stand the smell of this. I tried it twice and didn't notice much difference. Straight in to the garbage.

                                    Thanks for asking Kathy! Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer is a great product to layer with Outshine 01. We suggest using the Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer first and than apply Out Shine 01 prior to blow drying. Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer is perfect for protecting hair from heat up to 450 degrees, while Outshine 01 gives hair incredible shine and mild control.

                                    Thank you for your inquiry concerning wheat in Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer. Most ingredients derived from these sources are highly refined and retain no traces of allergenic proteins. For less refined ingredients from natural sources, Redken has established strict limits on the level of potentially allergenic proteins. We believe that this policy minimizes the likelihood of reactions to these proteins in the majority of sensitive individuals. However, since individuals exhibit a wide range of sensitivities to these proteins, if you have any questions or concerns you should discuss with your medical care provider.
