        Unexpectedly Cool

        from Los Angeles, CA

        Pros

          Cons

            Best Uses

            • Anti-breakage
            • Color treated hair
            • Dry hair
            • Frizzy Hair
            • Heat styling
            • wavy hair

            My stylist used this on my hair after my last color treatment & I have to say I was pretty impressed. I have had wavy, frizzy hair since I was a kid that would in no way blow dry straight. EVER. I'd have to use some sort of heat tool to get it to do anything. But with this product? Nope! Just a large round brush & a blow dryer got my waist length hair nice & straight, with volume to spare. The next day my hair was just as nice! The only con I would have to mention is the smell... not sure what it's supposed to be but I'd describe it as a chemical floral? Regardless, I'm going to become a repeat customer!

            Going back to buy!

            By Suzi

            from Orlando, Florida

            My stylist used on my hair 3 days ago.I usually am a nonbeliever when
            it comes to suggestions made because I feel sometimes the product of the month is solicited. However my hair looks the exact same as when my hair was styled on Saturday!
            Going back to purchase and hopefully I can use my rewards.

            Love It!

            By KAshley

            from Sterling Heights, MI

            Most good products I've used in the past may help a little, but this is one of the first products I can say actually makes a HUGE difference in my hair. Not only does this product actually cut my blow dry time in half (I have long, thick hair) it also really does protect my style after sleeping all night on it, there are no flat spots. The next morning my hair is texturized and ready for the finishing touches. Sometimes while I'm at work I need to throw my hair into a clip and when I take the clip out you would never know I was wearing one... my hair still looks great! I got this as a sample but am buying more now! My hair feels a little stiffer after using it, but in a good way! LOVE IT!!

                  I was a daily shampooer. Now I can go 2-3 days between shampoos with this product. My fine hair feels thicker, is shinier and healthier-looking, without any greasy buildup. I'm so glad my Ulta hairstylist recommended it!

                        A stylist used this on my hair and suggested it to me. My hair is fine and curly, and I only wash it every few days, but using this product at home, just a few light sprays, and my hair looks decent when I wake up, whereas usually its a mop.

                          Best Uses

                            I went to go have my hair done at the salon, and my hairdresser said that she absolutely had to recommend this product to me. At first, I was skeptical, until I saw the results in my hair. It cuts my dry time in half, keeps my hair having a healthy-looking shine, and, best of all, keeps my hair grease free for two or three days in between washes! I love this product, couldn't recommend it more.

                            • Everyday

                            I am a licensed cosmetologist and the salon I work in carries Redken products. From time to time with new product launches we as employees receive free sample sizes. About two weeks ago I received this Pillow Proof primer in a small sample size and I have used it for every blow dry since. It is absolutely amazing! As advertised it cuts drying time pretty much in half. I will say that you need to be weary with this product and read the directions. As with anything if you are too heavy handed you will get the opposite outcome as you should. Now the one con with this - the god awful smell. Usually that's a deal breaker for me but I love it that much that I use it anyway. I recommend this to every one of my clients. It is a must have to get a good salon quality blowout at home in less time.

                                  I hate this stuff. I have very fine hair and was looking for a great heat protectant spray-which this claims to be. My fair feels like straw. I run my hand through it and my fingers catch since it feels so rough. It also didn't decrease the amount of time it usually takes me to blow dry it. I'm returning this product.

                                  I am black. I wear weave. The hair that I leave out to blend in with the weave always reverts back in a few hours. Not anymore. Went to the salon and the Styling Professional straighten that natural hair right on out! It has been 4 days and it is still straight and I did not need to add any more product! Also she used a good flat iron. Now, my flat irons are better than okay and I still got the same result.

                                      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.

                                      We recommend spraying evenly through hair, section by section, and combing through to ensure all hair is evenly coated.
