Comments about Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer:

This product did do the trick, it helped my hair feel softer & tamer. However, the smell was so unappealing. I returned it, that's how much I did not like the way it made my hair smell.

    Comments about Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer:

    Grabbed this product because one of the stylist recommended it. I think it's okay. It doesn't have the greatest smell once applied, so it bothered me a little. I think the smell goes away after awhile...or maybe it's bc I put my own scented hair oil on after. I would probably grab a different one once I've used it all.

          It did cut the drying time in half, but I felt my hair had been completely dried out. Almost felt like it needed to be washed again. Not my favorite product for a blowout. I will be returning it. Personally not worth the price.

              After I get out of the shower I usually apply a leave in conditioner and then this after I allow my hair to air dry a little. It's has significantly decreased the time I spend using the blow dryer. Smells pretty good too and it's a fine, light mist.

                      I always spray this in my hair after the shower before I blow dry. It makes blow drying time so much faster and it smells amazing too. I love that it's not greasy and it's very lightweight so you don't feel it in your hair throughout the day.

                          Thanks for asking Kathy! Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer is a great product to layer with Outshine 01. We suggest using the Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer first and than apply Out Shine 01 prior to blow drying. Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer is perfect for protecting hair from heat up to 450 degrees, while Outshine 01 gives hair incredible shine and mild control.

                          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.
