          This stuff is great! not really for the fact that it shortens your drying time (because it didn't really shorten my time) but because it gives the best texture to my fine hair and lasts all day, even after I sleep on it!

                  You don't need much of this to get the results you want. If you do spray too much on, your hair may be a little weighed down that day.

                    I used to have to air dry my hair for at least 2 hours or even overnight so i wasn't putting an enormous amount of heat on my hair for sometimes longer than 15 minutes. Using the (amazing smelling) pillow proof, i can air dry for 30 minutes and it takes 5 minutes to dry my hair.

                        A:

                        Thank you for your inquiry concerning wheat in Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer. Most ingredients derived from these sources are highly refined and retain no traces of allergenic proteins. For less refined ingredients from natural sources, Redken has established strict limits on the level of potentially allergenic proteins. We believe that this policy minimizes the likelihood of reactions to these proteins in the majority of sensitive individuals. However, since individuals exhibit a wide range of sensitivities to these proteins, if you have any questions or concerns you should discuss with your medical care provider.

                      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.
