You know how in old movies, women would decline dates by saying that they’re staying in to wash their hair? Call it old fashioned, but there’s no denying that the whole shampoo-condition-blow-dry-style routine takes up a hung chunk of time. Well, get some of that time back with Redken’s Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer spray. Shake the bottle, spritz it on just-washed, towel-dried hair and prepare to be amazed. This product doesn’t just add a nice layer of heat protection: it gives you an extra kick of volume and, best of all, actually makes your hair dry a whole lot faster—up to 50%! Plus, if you’re one to go days between washes, this primer will keep on working in tandem with anything else you might apply. Bada bing, bada boom, you’re done!
