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!

Comments about Pureology Hydrate Air Dry Cream:

I was very excited to try this cream. I have 2a/2b wavy hair that has a layer of frizz on top. I've been looking for a product(s) that can allow me to air dry my hair without looking like I've been electrocuted. This did not do it. It did give my waves some definition, in the bottom layers, but the top layers of my hair were all over the place and frizzy. I used it after towel drying my hair AND before and both methods yielded the same results. Too bad :(

    My hair stylist recommended that I try this product and I can't thank her enough. I used it multiple times this week. I am very happy with the results. I put it in my hair and brushed my hair throughout the air drying process and my hair dried with minimal frizz and craziness. I am very happy with this purchase!

      Comments about Pureology Hydrate Air Dry Cream:

      I like to try a lot of products and bought a full size after receiving a travel size of this product. I like to air dry my hair most days and love this one. It smells great, similar to aveda with more natural plant based smell. Leaves hair soft. I wouldn't say I have frizzy hair but seems to smooth hair well.

            My hair is naturally straight but I had a perm just under a year ago. This styler hydrates my hair and and because of my perm it gives me loose waves. I use it only on my ends so it doesn't weigh my hair down.

              I have fine, straight/slightly wavy hair, color treated. This is awesome for air drying my hair. I try to only use heat styling for work or special occasions. When I use this cream, I can get loose big waves in my collar length bob. My hair smells good and is shiny and bouncy. Great product!

                Comments about Pureology Hydrate Air Dry Cream:

                When it comes to haircare, I am definitely a minimalist as far as product use. I let my hair air dry most of the time, so I wanted to find something that would make my hair more manageable and keep it from frizzing. This cream is great at controlling frizz and it makes my naturally coarse hair feel very soft. I tend to have oily roots so I concentrate most of the product at the ends. I really like this stuff and will continue to use it. If you have fine or thin hair, it may be too much.

                      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.
