    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!

                Product was initially used when I got my hair cut there at Ulta and my hairdresser used it on me. It was great and left my hair smooth and looked gorgeous! Once I tried it on my hair myself it looked exactly like I had it dried by my hairdresser!!! Highly recommend!!!

                          A:

                          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.

                          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.
