                Comments about Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment Primer:

                I am not very talented when it comes to styling my hair, but this product really helped with two key issues. It reduced the time I had to spend drying my hair (thereby reducing the accompanying frizz), and it helped lock my style in place. After I took the time to flat-iron my wavy hair, this product helped keep my hair straight all day long. I even slept on it, and woke up with still-straight hair! That has never happened to me!

                  I love this product because I have very long, thick hair, and it cuts my blow drying time down to 10 minutes! It also smells great while protecting my hair from heat products that I so often use.

                      THIS IS AWESOME! Not only did it help cut down drying time on my thick hair but it dried it thoroughly! Normally I have to wait a few hours after blow drying to get that "bone dry" feeling but this was immediate. Thank you Redken!

                              Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment Primer is designed to work when heat styling is desired. There are no additional benefits when air drying, as it protects the hair from heat damage and reduces blow drying time.

                              Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment Primer offer identical protections and qualities that Pillow Proof Express Primer offers except that the Treatment Primer also offers nourishment and moisture to dry hair. If your hair requires a little extra nourishment, or if your hair is coarse and thick, you would benefit from the Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment Primer. No need to use both products.

                              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.
