          Comments about Living Proof Amp2 Instant Texture Volumizer:

          I am speechless at the hair transformation that happened this morning. I did the sloppiest blow dry after washing and put zero product in. My hair was soft, shiny and completely flat against my head. A pea size amount shaken/scrunched through (not in roots) for a few minutes and my hair was fabulous looking,full of volume and just made my hair fall right into place. I really don't know how it all happened so fast! Looked like I had put in so much more effort than what I actually did!!! So happy with this product!!

              I have short, wavy hair & am always looking for a product to give me a little volume without weighing my hair down. This is it, I spoke to a stylist at an Ulta whose hair was spiky & asked her what she used. It's a little pricey but the container is pretty big & it does just what I need it to do.

                    • 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.

                        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! :-)

                        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.
