Most Helpful Positive Review Will never buy anything else!
I have medium, long hair that is frizzy and naturally wavy. Over the years I have tried everything to achieve curly, wavy hair with minimal effort. This is the only product I have ever tried that has given me the wavy, fun style I want without all the work and product. A quarter size amount spread evenly through my hair then let air dry. In an hour my hair is dry and it has given me smooth, soft, effortless curly/wavy style. Add a little hairspray and go!
Most Helpful Critical Review Returning it
I have medium thick, wavy to curly hair. I ALWAYS blow dry and style my hair, and rarely wear it naturally. I was interested in this product because I want to give my hair a heat/styling break, and I always trust Redken products. Nope this was a no go for me. It DID calm frizz without the crunchy gross hold, but it is hyped up to deliver beautiful results for sir dryed hair, and I can't say I'd go out in public after using this. Also, I can't believe the expensive price point. A VERY similar product that delivers the same result is Ogx Moroccan Curling Perfection, if you like the way your hair looks when air dried. But as for this product, I won't buy it again.

I only wash my hair twice a week. I am active and my hAir gets sweaty. This product is great and leaves my hair clean and adds body. The scent is wonderful.
Jackie from Michigan
Honestly I have no idea what exactly this does for my hair, but I know when I don't use it, my hair is frizzier, my waves are less defined, and overall my hair doesn't dry as nicely. I have a LOT of hair, and it can be wavy but will often fall flat. I typically wash my hair at night, put in my styling products and sleep on it. I use a few other products with this, and the combination is perfect. This product is definitely not for everyone (I don't know how much it would help stick straight or super curly hair), but it seems to work for me!
Can't live without it!
Jenny from MA
I have damaged bleached and colored hair so I dont like putting any heat on it. my hair naturally dries straight and super fluffy and frizzy, but I use this cream when it's about 75% dry and twirl several pieces into twists holding it in place with clips. I leave it to fully dry and when I Iet my hair out it has the most gorgeous soft waves! I have been able to go without heat for a long time now!
Shelly from St louis
I really like this product, it's my 2nd tube. I have a lot of body and wave to my hair, and this product works well when I dont want to blow dry. It's not sticky and blends in well.
Great product if you hate blow drying your hair!
A$h from Missouri
I hate blow drying my hair and rarely ever do so I was looking for something that I could just put in my hair and go that would defrizz my waves. This product delivers. I love Redken products so I was very excited to add this one to my favorites.
Didn't Make a Difference
Klr122901 from MA
This product did nothing for my medium length naturally wavy hair. It dried looking exactly the same way without any product in it. The only difference was that it felt weighed down. I was hoping this product would help soften the waves and tame some of the frizz, I even combined with the Redken anti frizz as suggested...zero difference. Thankfully I only purchased the travel sizes as I suspected they would be a waste of money.
Watch out if you have lanolin sensitivies!
MoC from NC
I just used this for the first time today, and was honestly really impressed with the product. I have fine, color-treated hair but I have a LOT of it. I used this to let my hair air dry naturally, scrunching my hair like the bottle suggests. It gave me nice waves (I do have slightly wavy hair, so this enhanced that) without weighing my hair down. My hair also didn't really feel like it had product in it, which is a huge plus. Unfortunately, I noticed the back of my neck feeling irritated throughout the day and I knew it must be the hair product. I looked at the ingredients list and realized this has lanolin in it. If you are sensitive to sheep's wool, be cautious because you may also have a sensitivity to lanolin (which comes from the wool). So sad this irritated me, because I will have to return it!
Not a fan
Sperk from Lake Havasu, Arizona
I've always loved Redkin brand, but this one not so much. It left my hair feeling like straw, it felt very drying even through my hair still looked damp. I really can't explain it. It just doesn't work for me.

The best thing ever
Great for air drying
Danielle from Reno NV
I have normal thickness, color treated, slightly wavy hair. This is great for air drying! It makes my hair smooth and manageable. Also dries quickly.
Amazing for wavy hair
Annie from Massachusetts
I have been using this for maybe 2 years now and it is perfect for wavy hair. My hair dries naturally with beachy waves and this product eliminates any frizz and keeps my waves perfect. Use a small amount after brushing your wet hair, scrunch it a little bit and let air dry. Will not make your hair hard, or crunchy, you'll feel like you have no product in it.
Despite the name, works best with a diffuser for me
Suzy from Atlanta, GA
I've had this product for a while and haven't used it much because I didn't achieve a great result using it to air dry my hair. Fast forward to the quarantine. I am just rinsing, not washing my hair every other day, and briefly diffusing it (with my DryBar diffuser) to bring out some wave. On a whim I put this in my hair before diffusing one day. WOW! I have wavy, sort of half curly, half straight hair. This product, combined with the diffuser, makes my hair SO curly. I have tried many, many products to bring out my wave and have never achieved curl like this. I'm on Ulta right now because I'm ordered another tube of it.
Mandy from CT
This product did nothing for me. Made my hair kind of sticky and hard to brush through when dry. Not impressed
Blondie Asian from Ventura, CA
I'm pretty sure anyone using this and not liking it is using too much. Just use like a garbanzo bean sized amount and rub it in your hands and lightly apply it and then use a brush or comb to evenly distribute. All I wanted was something to keep it from looking frizzy but I think it also helps straighten it. I have long Asian hair but it's fine and bleached blonde. I use this every morning and literally don't do anything else except sometimes a leave in conditioner, and then let it air dry. As long as I don't use too much by accident and I brush it after, it looks like I blow dried it (except minus the volume of course). So much easier and healthier than actually blow drying it every day! My stylist said I have no damage to my hair and I'm almost platinum blonde.
I would not purchase
Crystal from SC
I would not purchase this product. It made my hair feel sticky and hard. I prefer my hair to be soft and bouncy.
Didn't notice any real benefits
seeJsave from New Orleans, LA
There's too many times I run out of the house and wish I had time to blowdry my hair. I figured this product would be the perfect solution - a blowdry effect without the dry time. Unfortunately, it didn't really work for me. I didn't notice a real difference between my usual air dry look and the one achieved after using this product. All it really did was mean I had to wash my hair sooner to remove the product at the end of the day so it wouldn't get greasy more quickly than my naked hair.
Love this hair cream!!
Dayofamom from Lancaster
The No blow dry just right cream is perfect for those days when you don't want to spend tons of time doing your hair. My hair is naturally wavy and when I add the cream after shower it gives my hair a nice volume and style. The hair cream doesn't leave your hair feeling stiff instead it holds your style, leaves a nice shine and lasts all day long.
Helps tame hair in no time
Catherine from Indianapolis, IN
No now dry is helpful for on-the-go hair. My wavy hair had more definition when using the cream after washing my hair. It seemed to work a little better after the hair dried for a little bit.
I would buy this product again
Bethie from Milton WV
I hate to blow dry my hair. When I don't put product plot looks oily when I use gel it looks crispy when I use this product it makes perfect beach waves and smells great. The next day I don't wash my hair and it holds the perfect curl all day. Love this product!
as a mom-LOVE THIS!
Rachel from CT
If I happen to get the change to shower and wash my hair, I definitely don't have a lot of time to style my hair. This cream is AMAZING. Now that it's getting cold, I can't leave the house with wet hair so I use this cream and my hair is dry so much quicker. Would buy this again and again.
Lexl from Ohio
This is my holy grail hair product. I just purchased my 4th tube! I put this in my hair before work and within an hour my hair is dry, curly, and frizz free! This product allows me to work with my natural hair texture instead of having to use heat.
Redken no blow dry
Bella33469 from Florida
This no blow dry cream is nice for days you don't have time to blow dry your hair and you want the look of it being blow dried. I used this over the weekend and didn't really like the way if made my hair look once it was all dry, it looked more like air dried then a blow dried look. The product did smell great and my hair didn't feel like anything was in it, but it just isn't a product for me. It does not get rid of the frizz,unfortunately but it does make it less frizzy.
Quick drying frizz reduction
EmiRose from Waverly, Ohio
My hair is super fine and bleached, which results in very frizzy hair.
This no blow dry cream works amazing to smooth my hair without any heat tools.
The fact that it also helps my hair dry quicker is a huge added bonus!
I love this stuff
Jenicorn817 from TX
This product has saved me so much time. I am 100% the person who doesn't mind washing my hair, but with long hair, the thought of having to blow it dry makes me go through more dry shampoo than I care to admit. I thought I would give this a shot after the summer weather had subsided as the humidity where I live would have given a biased result. I began using this about a month ago and it has become a staple in my rotation. I would guess that I have cut down on blowdrying by about half. I wash and then add some of this to the mid sections and ends of my hair. It doesn't weigh it down. I have fine to medium hair so I try to avoid putting products at the root. This works best with towel-dried hair. I basically put it in my hair and then I'm done. This saves me a lot of time. Who doesn't like to sleep for an extra half an hour? I really love it.
lseegs from Adrian, Michigan
Overall I think this works well, I have long wavy hair and the ends are very damaged (split ends and just dry) and this really helped to calm it down when it dried. I made sure not to get it up to the root because I have a tendency to get oily when I add anything extra to my scalp. It has a great smell & consistency, I felt like I needed to use a bit because I have pretty thick hair along with it being long too.
