                    I am on my second bottle of this primer. I feel like it really helps my hair hold curl and it protects my hair from the drying daily use of my curling iron or straightener. I have thick coarse hair and it works really well with my hair type. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

                      Comments about Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer:

                      I love Pillow Proof on its own, but my favorite way to use it is to spray it on my towel-dried hair before spraying It's a 10 or my Redken One leave-in spray on top, then combing through! l feel like it helps my hair dry faster and accentuates the benefits of additional product I put in my hair - definitely cuts down dry time for me and leaves my hair nearly straight enough to where I only need to use my straightener on a few stubborn sections of hair.

                          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.

                          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.
