                I have pretty thick hair, so blow drying/styling my hair is something I hate putting time into. I immediately noticed a difference in drying time and in frizz control after just a few uses.

                        I spray this onto my wet hair after the shower and then brush through. I'll use my fingers to loosen my hair away from my scalp and let the product do it's work. Whether I'm air drying or blow drying, my hair dries noticeably quicker, smells great, has a nice shine, and feels quite smooth and silky. I've also used this product with my favorite leave in conditioner or smoothing serum. Always great results!

                              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.
