Redken is a luxe hair brand that I’ve dabbled with over the years but their latest release – the Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment Primer*(£17) has got me really excited. This primer aims to allow faster drying time as well as protecting the hair and reducing breakage.
I wear tape-in extensions and washing my hair is the most monotonous task. Drying my hair can take over an hour and I find myself reaching for the dry shampoo more often than not.
I had my extensions re-taped a few weeks back and a little weight and length taken out and since then, my drying time has reduced considerably. That being said, it wasn’t until I began using the Pillow Proof Express Treatment Primer that the task of drying my hair became..well, less of a task. In fact, my hair dries pretty darn fast these days!
I use 2/3 pumps of product and distribute evenly throughout my hair before drying. I’m too lazy to give myself a proper blow dry but I do dry my hair in sections. This primer is genius. It dries my hair in no time at all, in fact it took just 10 minutes to try my hair today.
You wouldn’t be knocked for thinking this product would completely dry your hair out, after all it’s drying the hair super fast. Thankfully, that isn’t the case at all. In fact it protects the hair and leaves it smooth and soft but most importantly for me, way more manageable.
I think it’s safe to say this will be in my hair routine for a long time to come.
Is this something which your hair needs?
Love, Kate xo
