          Product doesn't do anything special. Nothing notable when using. Unpleasant smell is too strong as well. Was looking for a replacement for Oribe Royal blowout which is pricey. Oribe product is FAR superior, guess I'll have to just pay high price tag or continue search.

                    I wish I could get over the scent, to me it smells of maple syrup and to me, that is not what I want my hair to smell like. If they changed the scent I think the product would be much more effective. It doesn't leave my hair dry, and it does seem to lessen the time I do blowouts but the smell I just can't get over. It almost smells rancid. In the meantime I would suggest using Briogeo's Rosarco, it's a good Blow dry creme and the smell is slightly better but still not ideal. It does, however, do a pretty good job with keeping my bleached balayaged hair easier to manage.

                              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.

                              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.
