        I put it in my hair after a shower and it works great! I'm wondering if I have to put more in after I blow dry since it stayed straight for my hair dresser but the next day it became a little wavy. I straightened my hair with it.

                Comments about Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment Primer:

                Was not suitable for colored hair. Especially fine textured hair! This product made it feel straw-like and stiff. Gunky, like something was coating the hair in a no shine dry down. Made my hair look life less and overall gross feeling. Had to rewash. I don't recommend. I would def stick to the original Redken Diamond Oil in the amber glass bottle and use that one sparingly instead. I think the Redken pink copy products are high alcohol-isn and sub par in performance.

                    My hair is thick, long, and coarse. I use two pumps before blowing out. My drying time is cut in half, and no more frizz. Using this I can go days without washing and my hair still looks amazing!

                      Comments about Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment Primer:

                      This is a great product to use before you blow out your hair. It isn't heavy and leaves hair very soft and clean feeling, which is ideal when you don't wash your hair every day. It has cut down somewhat on my drying time but not significantly. And I agree with the other reviews that it smells great!

                      The only downside is that the product is somewhat expensive.

                          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.
