                  I have very long frizzy hair. Love this product. Spray it on wet hair after shampoo/conditioner. Then use a couple pumps of Redkin Diamond Oil on the ends. Helps detangle. Let it air dry bit then blow dry the rest. Leaves my hair so soft and shiny. I only wash about once a week. Love this stuff!

                        When I first saw this on the shelf, I thought it was much ado about nothing so I bought the "trial size". I absolutely love this product! In my mind, it truly does shorten my blow dry time and anything that gets me out of the house quicker is a plus for me! It leaves no residue and is very lightweight.

                              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.

                              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.
