    Comments about Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer:

    A bit more $$ than I'd typically pay for a hair product, but worth every cent! I have thick hair (and a lot of it), so blowdrying has always been a pain. I was blown away with how quickly my hair dried with this product in it, and it smells awesome. I will definitely be buying it again!

      Comments about Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer:

      I noticed a big difference when I ran out of this product. My hair looked damaged and dry when I didn't use this product. I only use it when I shampoo my hair. I wash my hair once every four days and use a conditioner on the days I don't shampoo. So I didn't really need it on the non-shampoo days.

            Although helped with drying time - did not like frizzy, weighted-down effect it had on my hair after exposure to humid Texas weather. Did not like the product's fragrance! Big Redken Brand fan but not of this particular product.

                  This product has helped cut my blow drying time down greatly. The smell isn't the greatest, but I can deal with it. It is light weight and gives my hair shine and texture. It also leaves my hair silky soft. I love it!

                    I have fine but thick hair. This helps cut down the blow dry time! I'm can't stand taking a long time to get ready and this product really helps, cuts my blow dry time in half. It also helps to detangle and smooths hair.

                          How does this compare to Kenra's Blow-Dry Spray? Does it do the same thing?

                            A:

                            The two products are very similar. Both feature a silicone base to seal the cuticle, helping to speed drying time and to prevent breakage and damage from heat styling tools. They both also provide a silky smooth, shiny finish. Kenra Platinum Blow-Dry Spray protects up to 428ºF, and Pillow Proof protects up to 450ºF. Kenra Platinum Blow-Dry Spray decreases blow-dry time by 50%; Redken does not make an exact claim, but states that Pillow Proof cuts blow dry time.
