        I love the smell and the ease of this product. I do recommend the Diamond Oil with it just to top it off. My hair is very frizzy, dry, and long. This helped tame the frizz a bit and cut dry time.

            I really love Pillowproof! I use it every time I wash my hair. It makes hair soft, less frizzy, straighter, and fresher looking. It maintains this look even after sleeping on it. The only downside is the price, which is pretty high considering.

                This was sold to me to be used along with Pureology Colour Fanatic AND Redken Rebel Tame (?) I get awesome results without this added step. It did NOT help my hair to dry any faster, it just weighed it down. When I asked MY hair stylist what I was doing wrong, she said the Pureology has the heat protection I need (along with its many other benefits) and the Rebel Tame helps to lock out the frizz. She explained that I've used enough Rebel Tame when my hair absorbs it from my hands but doesn't leave any behind- for my hair, a lot more than the Ulta rep advised.

                            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.
