Haircare has always been an important part of my daily routine as I have very long, thick hair, so when Redken offered to send me their Pillow Proof Blowdry Express Treatment Primer*, I couldn't wait to try it out! If you follow me on instagram you would have already seen the amazing American Sweets that were delivered alongside the products to signify the American Brand, which is based on 5th Avenue in New York. The brand was founded by Paula Kent in 1960 and within 50 years, the brand has grown substantially and is now recognised across the globe in 43 different countries. 

I have never tried anything from Redken before but i've heard really great things about their products on the blogosphere and many of their products are sold in salons around the UK- so it must be good right!? Even though haircare is important to me, so is my time, so if I can find something that cuts down the time I spend styling my hair then its a winner in my book and thats exactly what the Redken Pillow Proof Blowdry Primer does. This product reduces blowdry time, whilst protecting hair from heat of up to 230 degrees. Using two pumps of the cream on damp hair will provide 24-hours of weightless volume and will reduce hair breakage. The cream hydrates and nourishes the hair, leaving it feeling 3x stronger and healthier. 

Initially, I didn't think a product could really live up to this many claims, but since using the cream every time I wash my hair I have found that the Redken Pillow Proof Primer really does. The most noticeable difference is the time it takes me to blowdry my hair. Before using the product I would spend over 15 minutes waiting for my thick hair to dry, often giving up mid way through. Now, it takes less than 10 minutes, which means I can have an extra 5 minutes in bed! Also, the fact that I don't have to spend time finding heat protection sprays and other styling products amongst all of my beauty  products also reduces the time spent on blowdrying my hair, as this product does everything I need. My hair also looks smoother and glossier and is easier to manage once dry. I think this product is quickly becoming a holy grail item, and i'll definitely be repurchasing it once its all gone! The bottle is really convenient to use and comes with a handy pump which dispenses the perfect amount of product. 

There's lots of other products in the Pillow Proof range that I can't wait to get my hands on, including the Express Primer Spray and the Two Day Extender, which is similar to a dry shampoo. All of the products in the range retail for £17.00, however they are currently 25% off on Feel Unique, so grab yourself a bargain!
