    this product made my freshly washed and conditioner hair look like i haven't showered in days. it's greasy to the point that it's separating into chunks after only a few spritzes into towel-dried hair. i'm very disappointed and i need another shower.

      Comments about Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer:

      I thought this was a dryer protect spray. But it really drys out my hair. I believe it is more to help you shorten the time of drying your hair. But it must be alcohol that is the ingredient that make my hair too frizzy/dry

          I really like this product for a blow out. I'm a red head and if you don't know, we really appreciate our products that provide heat protection to keep that vibrant color. Not only does it provide heat protection but it also leaves my hair straight and with great volume. I rarely have to take a flat iron to it afterwards. It holds too. Make sure you shake the bottle well before use and don't use too much or it can get sticky. Use on damp hair for blow drying only, I wouldn't recommend putting this on dry hair.

              Comments about Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer:

              I have never used a product for heat protection while blow drying but I am thrilled to have tried Pillow Proof! You spray on wet hair before you use your usual hair product. It is lightweight and does not weigh your hair down or leave a film...what it does do is truly take time off of blow-drying your hair. A bonus it helps to get a second day in the same shape as day one. My hair usually curls at night as I sleep, but Pillow Proof really does help to extend the life of a blow dry. All this and protection from the hairdryer heat...I'm sold!

                  Comments about Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer:

                  Does help diminish the time of blow drying. When used right, it cuts some of the time length in drying thick hair. For me it does have a little different of a smell, but that may be because my usual preferences are natural or sweet scent-based products.

                    • Q:

                      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.
