      I use this product every single day. My stylist turned me onto it a couple weeks ago and I haven't gone a day without it. It smells great and my hair is protected from the heat of drying and curling every day.
      I LOVE this product.

        The first time I tried this product I tried the spray form which I loved, this time I tried the creme version and I love it just as much! It's so nice to have a blow dry primer and heat protection in one product that doesn't leave a residue in your hair. I also prefer non spray forms because I have super sensitive skin and it helps me to only get the product where I want it! Love!

                  This product seems to deliver. I have shoulder length, naturally curly hair. It does seem to shorten my dry time and makes it easier to straighten with a flat iron. It doesn't take much product at all. Actually it seems to make my hair a bit more difficult to straighten when I accidentally used more than I intended.

                          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.
