When I first read about the Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer (£17) and how it reduces blow-dry time down I couldn’t wait to try it out! Drying my hair always feels like such a chore and it’s what I dislike the most in the morning, since I’ve had my hair cut it doesn’t take as long as it used to but is still very time consuming. The Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer is designed to reduce blow-dry time, protect the heat up to 232C ,reduce breakage and provide 24 hours lasting volume.It’s packaging is a pretty pink tube and you just press down on the top to dispense the cream, I’ve found that one pump is enough for my hair length. The cream doesn’t leave my hair feeling sticky or dry, it’s very nourishing and hydrating. The protection it offers is up to 232C which is perfect for me as I use a hairdryer everyday, however if I was to curl my hair I would probably use an additional form of heat protection just to make sure that it was protected enough. When it came to the claims of reducing blow-dry time I was so impressed, it actually cut it down by around 4 minutes which I honestly think is amazing. Any amount of time spent less on drying my hair is amazing to me!I have the travel-sized version of this product too which is great as I’ve been using it every day so I like that it’s small enough to take away with me. I had never thought about using a hair primer before but now it makes sense to me and I’m in love with this product. At first I was slightly sceptical if it really was going to work however I should have never had those doubts as it does an amazing job at reducing my blow-dry time and protecting my hair, and hopefully overtime it will make my hair stronger.
