One of the great things about being a beauty blogger is that you get to find out about beauty products that you wouldn’t have otherwise known about. A case in point is Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry which I’m very happy to have discovered. The downside to professional haircare ranges is that they can fly under the radar unless your hairdresser particularly recommends them. This is a shame because there’s so many great pro haircare products and they can now easily be bought online as well as in salons.
Pillow Proof Blow Dry is much more than a heat protection product though it does this important job extremely well – it protects hair to 230ºC. It cuts down on the time it takes to blow dry hair. I’m not sure how it does this but it works and even a 5/10 minute saving is helpful in our busy lives. It also nourishes hair and has an anti-breakage formula making hair 3x stronger so it’s like adding an additional conditioner to your routine.
Something else it does, which I was sceptical about until I experienced it for myself, is that it holds your hair style for longer. This is obviously why it’s called Pillow Proof and my hair really does maintain its shape over night when I use this. It’s for all hair types but is supposed to be particularly good on thick, coarse hair. I hate having to describe my hair as coarse but the truth is that is what it is unless I use a good taming product. Pillow Proof Blow Dry makes it smooth and silky to the point that I don’t have to use anything else post blowdry.
Pillow Proof Blow Dry is a new product to the Pillow Proof range that already includes the Blow Dry Express Primer Spray, which is for when you want protection from extreme heat (450ºC) and Two Day Extender Dry Shampoo, which is next on my list to try.
Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry has an RRP of £17 but it’s often available for less than that. For example, there’s 20% off the Pillow Proof range at Look Fantastic at the moment and it’s also on a 2 for 3 offer.This post contains press samples unless otherwise stated.
