      My hair is thick, long, and coarse. I use two pumps before blowing out. My drying time is cut in half, and no more frizz. Using this I can go days without washing and my hair still looks amazing!

        Comments about Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment Primer:

        This is a great product to use before you blow out your hair. It isn't heavy and leaves hair very soft and clean feeling, which is ideal when you don't wash your hair every day. It has cut down somewhat on my drying time but not significantly. And I agree with the other reviews that it smells great!

        The only downside is that the product is somewhat expensive.

          Comments about Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment Primer:

          I was looking for a product to speed up my blow dry time which is around 1 hour. This one seemed to be the most obvious choice even though Redken products usually dissapoint me. After using this product, blow dry time was the same as usual. My hair wasnt softer or looked healthier eithier.

            This stuff works great to tame my hair, nothing compares. My hair is poofy/wavy/frizzy, and with this I don't even have to straiten my hair to make it presentable. So it really helps preserve my hair while growing it out.

                Provides moisture, dries hair quickly and hair smells and feels great. It does not have any holding power though. About this first hour my hair looks wonderful but I tend to frizz throughout the day and my hair wants to curl and wave up. This doesn't hold the style. I need to find a compliment product to prevent frizz.

                  I have wavy, thick and course hair. I get color monthly and keratin texture control 2-3x per year. I tried this and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! Manageable, glossy, and texture of my hair improved. No need to add a styling product!

                        This product will hold your hairstyle for a few days-no need to start from scratch. I have a little girl who plays hard and sleeps hard. After styling her hair with this product it is now more manageable for up to 3 days.
                        The stylist at Hair Cuttery turned me on to this product. Once i saw it on sale at Ulta I jumped on it.

                            We do not believe that there should be any issue with using our products; however, since our products have not been tested in conjunction with Brazilian Keratin Relaxers, or treatments, we cannot provide you with usage information.

                            We suggest you contact the manufacturer of that treatment and follow their advice.

                            Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment Primer is the first step when styling. It is used on damp hair to help reduce blow dry time and protect from heat up to 450 degrees. Once blow dried you may use a flat iron to finish styling.

                            We recommend using the Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment Primer Cream for your thick, wavy hair. The cream is preferred for thick, coarse or wavy hair. The Spray is nearly identical, except that it also provides volume, which makes the spray ideal for thinner hair.
