Hydrate Air Dry Cream is a no blow dry, air dry cream for heatless styling with a flawless finish. Perfect for low maintenance, effortless style. AirDry technology and AntiFade complex provides fast dry time, enhanced body, frizz control with a no product feel and colour radiance protection.
To minimize friction and reduce frizz, use a soft cotton t-shirt to gently blot dry clean hair until at least 50% dry. Follow with Hydrate Air Dry Cream for best results. For an even distribution of product, apply Hydrate Air Dry Cream first to your densest areas. Start at the back of the head (where you have the most hair), then apply to the sides, and lastly sparingly around the hairline. Apply Hydrate Air Dry Cream down the hair shaft keep to the cuticle smooth and polished. By doing this, you will have a frizz-free shiny result once hair is dried!

    I would prefer it not be so costly or at least be offered coupons of substance for it. I go through a tube every two weeks. Might be nice to purchase in larger quantities at reduced price.

    Comments about Pureology Hydrate Air Dry Cream:

    I wash my hair at night because I wake up at 4am & dont want to mess with it that early in the morning. Normally I'd wake up & itd still be wet. I started using this about a month ago my hair dries so much faster & it isn't frizzy. I've even gotten compliments on how my hair looks & its healthier because I dont have to use any heat on it. The only downside is it doesn't smell the greatest but I just spray my detangler after applying this & it masks the sent.

      • Daily Use

      Comments about Pureology Hydrate Air Dry Cream:

      I have only had this product 2 weeks but I have used it a handful of times and it works great ! I have issues with leave in conditioners being to heavy and weighing down my fine, wavy hair but this stuff does the trick for me. I can easily go 3 days without washing my hair before it starts to get oily (with use of dry shampoo). I live in a somewhat humid climate and the product seems to perform just fine, but I cannot attest to how it ill hold up in much more humid places like the southeastern part of the USA.

        It does control some of the frizz but not completely. The worst is the smell, it has an odd smell like medicine or something. I will be returning this product of possible.

                  I really hate how much time it can take to do my hair and come out with something polished enough for work but also workable. Pureology has made a product that makes my life a complete ease. I put a quarter sized amount from root to tip and massage it in and it air drys beautifully with curls and no frizz.
                  This product is a god send. I take it everywhere. I recommend it to everyone I see.

                      Can this be used with heat as well? I would use the color fanatic also for heat protection. I usually air dry to reduce heat damage but then flat iron when it's dry

                        Hydrate Air Dry Cream is a leave-in cream and lightweight styler for dry hair that will shortens drying time and controls frizz. As long as you are using a heat protector it is fine to use a flat iron once your hair is dry.
