REVIEW: Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment

Any of my fellow long-haired girls out there will know that the struggle to keep your locks in tip-top condition is a full time job sometimes, and especially when it comes to protecting it from heat styling and the sun. And with time so often lacking in a busy, stressful world, a product that can cut down styling time and damage is even more appealing.

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'.
There's a plethora of blow styling products out there but what seems to make Redken's Pillow Proof Blowdry Express Treatment Primer Cream unique is that it has an innovative formula that works to strengthen and shield from breakage whilst being a non-greasy, multi-beneficial cream that speeds up drying time, provides heat protection up to 230°C and delivers twenty-four hour volume without extra weight. Phew, that's a lot of gorgeous sounding promises there! So how does it work for me?

I would describe my hair as fairly complex. It's very long and I should probably get it cut more than I do (raise your hand if you're with me!) so it is prone to dryness at the ends and can be slightly frizzy. I often blow dry my hair than straighen it all over because I like the that healthy-looking bounce blow drying gives.

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.
Redken also kindly sent me lots of American sweets and a travel sized version which is straight in my bag packed for my summer holiday. Again, it's so lovely to have just one hair product to travel with as opposed to two or three! It all adds up in those little plastic bags after all!

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.
