So enter hair angels Redken who so kindly got in touch and asked me if I wanted to try their new 'Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment'.
The consistency of the product is a white cream so it definitely felt really light and wonderfully doesn't way your hair down which is everything to me as I hate sticky feeling products in my hair. Because my hair is thick and long it can take a while to blow dry but I can confirm this did speeds things a bit to make my usual styling of 20 minutes about 15 minutes which is pretty good for me- an extra 5 minutes is everything after all! Especially in the morning!
And voila the last photo above are the results from the first time using the Pillow Proof Treatment Primer and I'm incredibly happy with the results! It looks slightly fly-away on the end strands of my hair but normally it takes a lot of work to get my hair that super smooth just from blow-drying so I'm incredibly impressed with how well it worked. My hair definitely feels primed and perfected. What I liked the most is that I just used one product to style my hair as opposed to a lotion, a heat protector, de tangler etc. This does it all and I think that's so handy to have in your collection. I think a slick of argan oil or similar would all I would need afterwards.
A huge thank you to Redken for letting me try this and I look forward to using it more and more.To keep up to date with Redken their twitter handle is @RedkenUK and you can see other results from this little wonder prouct on the #mypillowproof hashtag.
