    Comments about Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment Primer:

    When I use this my hair is smoother and has more shine than without it. I'm not positive about it being faster as I have a growing out pixie, so it doesn't take long anyway. I have fine, straight, bleached hair, and this product works great for me.

                  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.

                          Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment Primer can be used on all hair types, but ideal for dry, thick or coarse hair. Pillow Proof Primer protects hair from heat and can be layered underneath any Redken styling product. For volume you might want to try Thickening Lotion 06, this product will plump up hair with body and fullness.

                          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.

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