I love a new haircare launch, and when they’re super pink, look gorgeous on your dressing table and all round amazing products, everyone’s a winner. With 3 products already in the iconic Redken Pillow Proof Family, the new Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment Primer is going down a storm in the blogging world, and for all the right reasons.
Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment Primer (£17 for 150ml)
The award winning Express Primer in a cream is perfect for thick or coarse hair that needs extra manageability. Hair is left 3x stronger and healthier and perfectly primed for any style, as well as claiming to reduce blow-dry time, protect hair from heat up to 230˚, help reduce breakage, and provide 24-hour lasting volume – making this cream the new essential first step for every blow-dry! To use, pump 2-3 pumps to dispense and work evenly through damp hair, focusing on the ends where dry hair needs extra care, style as desired. Redken recommend that to keep your blow-dry looking perfect for longer use Pillow Proof Blow Dry Two Day Extender on the root area and brush through to absorb excess oils and refresh hair.
I have found this latest addition to the range to be my favourite, and I can now see why every beauty blogger and their dog has been raving about this! After using this my hair feels healthier and stronger, and knowing the primer protects my hair from heat too is also a great touch.
Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer Spray (£17 for 170ml)
This lightweight bi-phase primer spray is ideal for all hair types as it reduces blow-dry time, protects from heat up to 230˚, helps reduce breakage, provides 24-hour lasting volume and hair is left 3x stronger and healthier and perfectly primed for any style. Simply shake to activate and spray evenly through damp hair. I was a little bemused to what the purpose of this in the range was due to the amazing qualities of the primer, but alas this spray was in the collection first, so it did initially have a purpose, before the primer came along and stole the show! I do like this spray, but for me it is all about the new primer now!
Instantly refresh day old hair with this oil-absorbing dry shampoo. Go from a worn-out blow-dry to refreshed, full-bodied texture, simply by spraying on hair (focusing on the roots) and brush through to distribute evenly. If needed I like to touch-up sections with a blow dryer, straighten or curlers as I find this makes my hair look like first day hair again! This isn’t THE most absorbent of dry shampoos out there, and it does the job, however personally I definitely would not spend this sort of money on a dry shampoo, when my good ole pal Batiste costs 1/4 of the price and I go through dry shampoo like it’s going out of fashion.
As soon as I received the parcel with all these gorgeous pink products in, this was the one I was drawn to, as I loved the luxe packaging and as soon as I opened the box up and saw the bottle, it was love. The bottle is a gorgeous pink glass bottle that looks like a perfume bottle and looks gorgeous on my dressing table. This heat-responsive ultra lightweight protective blow dry oil provides hair with a diamond-like shine and smoothness and reduces blow-dry time with activated silicones; making it the dry oil you need in your life. Apply on damp hair concentrating on mid-lengths and ends, blow dry, and reapply on dry hair for an extra boost of shine! I love how this oil instantly lifts the shine in my hair without weighing it down or making it look oily. Whilst this oil is on the pricier side (for me), because you only need a drop and it features a handy pump, a little goes a long way and I can see this lasting me a while!
