        This product is amazing! Dry time is reduced and it smells amazing. After using it to dry my hair, I can straighten my hair, go to bed, and my hair is still almost perfectly straight for the next 2 mornings. I wish I had found this sooner!

        not for me

        By Angie

        from IN

        Comments about Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment Primer:

        This stuff smells like a nasty flowery-weed garden to me. I used this with the spray (got the clip sets for xmas). This product is very gooey when you add the heat. I do not care for this at all. I think the spray works so much better. This stuff almost makes hair snap & break while blow drying.

          I had my hair styled at Ulta and they used this product. Loved how quickly she dried my hair and the way my hair looked. Wondered if it would work for me like it did for the stylist - and it did!! For once I didn't waste my money.

            I don't like the pump, would much prefer it to spray. That being said, it does seem to cut down on my blow dry time.

                  What is the difference between this and the Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer? Do you use both or just one of them?

                    A:

                    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.

                    A:

                    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.

                    A:

                    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.
