4Faster Blowdry

When you do wash your hair, cut down on the time it takes you to style. Faster evaporation technology reduces the bond between water and hair so that it’s released more quickly, cutting drying time by up to 50 percent. Soy protein and silk amino acids impart shine and detangle strands.
