          Totally LOVE this product. I have very fine, thin, straight hair. AMP 2 gives my hair the body, texture & hold I need without the stiff, sticky feel of hair spray. Prior to finding this product, I used hair spray for YEARS, out of necessity. This product has literally changed my life!! It's quite pricy, but to me it's worth it!! I try to stock up when Ulta runs a 20% off prestige products. The key is to only use a small amount. I put it in the palm of my hand & rub my hands together, then lightly distribute through the hair. Highly recommend!!

            Comments about Living Proof Amp2 Instant Texture Volumizer:

            This is the only hair product that I can say, I cannot live without. I use it after blow drying my hair and the secret is not to use to much. Rub it in your hands and than through your hair. Just keep fluffing up your hair and style. I never use a brush. Sometimes a back comb to add some height than spray with hairspray
            and your done. I have tried tons of products for volume. The search is over.

                • Q:

                  I have naturally wavy curls. I am looking for a pomade/product that I can use (when I straighten my hair). What I am looking for is something that will help with frizz, give a textured, piecey look without flattening it down or looking greasy. Is this the right product to use for what I'm after?

                    A:

                    Amp will not help with frizz protection but it will give you a piecey look and textured feel, while adding volume. For the additional frizz protection, we recommend applying No Frizz Humidity Shield all over, for a frizz-free, polished look.

                    You can absolutely use a mousse as well for even more volume. Both the Full Thickening Mousse and the Timeless Plumping Mousse will give you a beautiful, voluminous look, when used with Amp2 Instant Texture Volumizer. Enjoy!

                  Can this be used in long hair that has been curled with a curling iron? Currently I use the iron then tousle the curls with a dry texture spray. I'm looking to replace the spray with another product that creates fullness and lift like dry texture spray. Thanks!

                    A:

                    Yes, absolutely these two products can be used together! For best results, apply Perfect Hair Day (PhD) 5-in-1 Styling Treatment to damp hair from roots to ends, then blow dry or let hair air dry. Once hair is dry, rub a pea-sized amount of Amp2 between hands until translucent and muss through hair for volume and texture. Apply to ends for definition. We cannot stress enough that a little goes a long way when it comes to Amp2! :-)

                • Q:

                  I have seen this product amp2 Instant Texture Volumizer advertised as cone-free. In reviewing the ingredients, I noticed it has polymers. Polymers are silicones. How can they say it is cone-free?

                  Kindly respond.

                    A:

                    Amp2 is silicone free.

                    Silicones are a class of materials that use siloxanes as the backbone. You are correct in assuming most (but not all) silicones are polymers. Now a polymer is a material that has repeating units of similar ‘blocks’ of materials. Dimethicone is the most commonly used silicone in hair care and is also a polymer – chemically know as polydimethylsiloxane. This is a heavy material that tends to weigh hair down and make hair feel prematurely dirty. That said, not all polymers are silicones. Amp2 uses carefully chosen styling polymers that don’t have the same properties as silicones.
