Comments about Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer:

I actually purchased my 1st bottle from another salon on the recommendation of the stylist there. I liked the way it made my hair feel after a blow dry. I also hate to blow dry my hair, but can't let air dry. This speeds up the process.

      When I was getting my hair cut, my stylist recommend this product to me since it cuts your blow drying time down. I have very thick and long hair, and this product really works to cut your blow drying time down. It only took 10 minutes; it normally takes 20 or more minutes. I love it!!

              I bought this for myself, mom and sister after using the one my sister bought. I loved hers; it worked great and smelled so good. When I received my items it didn't turn out so great this time. I thought maybe I was using it wrong? But I watched the video that was provided on how to use it and was doing the same thing. This time around the product worked fine, but didn't smell so good. It kind of smelled like syrup and that was for all three that I bought. I will not be buying it again.

                  This stuff is magic for me. I have fine, wavy hair. I blow dry and flat iron and wash about every other day. This really helps to hold my style and when I blow dry my hair and use my round brush , it's like my stylist did it. It also makes it last longer and the next day all I do is touch up with the flat iron and a couple of sprays of the Redken PillowProof dry shampoo. This entire line is amazing. I love Redken products. I feel for the price the quality is just amazing.

                          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.
