        I have semi-thick hair, but A LOT of it. Always takes forever to dry, even with a blow dryer. This product helps protect my hair and greatly reduces the amount of time with a blow dryer, down to 10 minutes. Yes!

          Thank you Brendan for suggesting this product and using it on my new hair style! I have hair that does not like to stay flat especially if I have been riding on the motorcycle or getting out of bed. I just fluff the hair up and out I go!

            I love Redken, 90% of my hair products are Redken. This heat protectant spray is the worst. It makes my hair feel gritty and dry, I wouldnt ever recommend this particular product.

                    A:

                    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.

                • Q:

                  How does this compare to Kenra's Blow-Dry Spray? Does it do the same thing?
                  Asked on 9/26/2014 by Brandy from United States

                  1 answer

                  • Staff Expert

                    A:

                    The two products are very similar. Both feature a silicone base to seal the cuticle, helping to speed drying time and to prevent breakage and damage from heat styling tools. They both also provide a silky smooth, shiny finish. Kenra Platinum Blow-Dry Spray protects up to 428ºF, and Pillow Proof protects up to 450ºF. Kenra Platinum Blow-Dry Spray decreases blow-dry time by 50%; Redken does not make an exact claim, but states that Pillow Proof cuts blow dry time.
