Hydrate Air Dry Cream

5.0 oz Item 2507035

Find in Store-

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 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.

            I received a sample to try. I liked the fact that it was vegan, but I didn't notice too much of a difference after using it. Given the price point, I'm not sure I'd buy it.

            I received samples of this product to try out. I was hopeful because I've used and loved several other Pureology products. I didn't care for the strong, cologne-like fragrance of this product and it made my roots heavy and greasy. I ended up washing my air again because of the fragrance and the greasy feeling of my hair. I won't use it again.

              Comments about Pureology Hydrate Air Dry Cream:

              His is a great product! It really helps to control frizz and hold a style. I normally straighten my hair, but on those days when I just want to get out of the shower and put my hair in a ponytail, it normally is frizzy and crazy within an hour. This stuff really helps to control that. It smells good, doesn't feel greasy or heavy and is easy to use. I will definitely buy this product in the future!
              I received this product as a free sample from Pureology.

                I really like this product. I have coarse, thick, frizzy hair and this stuff really tames it. I don't always have time to straighten or style my hair and when I don't, I just put in some of this cream and it controls the frizz and tames my hair. It smells great, doesn't feel greasy or heavy and works great! It can't be beat!

                    I received this product for free to try out. I have thick/course wavy hair that takes over 30 minutes to blow dry. I am always on the look out for hair products that reduce the time it takes for my hair care routine. Pureology's hydrate air dry cream works wonderfully it helps reduce my frizz and define my waves a little. Warning a little goes a long way. I just put a little in my damp hair scrunch it a little and go. It smells great. The only reason i did not give it 5 stars is i am a little disappointed that it did not help reduce volume (which most people probably love but i have too much volume).

                        I love this stuff. I have combo hair that I'd oily at the roots but also incredibly frizzy when I air dry. I hate heat styling, so this stuff is perfect. The smell is fantastic. It is an herbal smell like that of Aveda. My hair does not get weighed down or extra greasy like some defrizzers can do. It's very soft and silky. This should not replace any normal conditioners you use though as its a styling cream and not a leave in conitioner. Very happy with this.

                          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.
