FREE sample No Frizz Nourishing Cream w/any $24 Living Proof purchase
To style hair with volume and texture, it takes significant time, energy, and skill, and the results often fall flat. Why? The stiff resins used in most volumizing and texturizing products can easily break, so volume and texture don't stand a chance against everyday forces like wind, humidity, and even touch. Plus, their heavy ingredients weigh hair down and attract dirt, so hair needs to be washed, styled, and restyled often - which is both damaging and time consuming.

Amp2 is powered by Living Proof's Meta-Volume Technology, a revolutionary complex of polymers and their patented Volumizing Molecule (PBAE) which:
  • Deposits microscopic thickening dots between each hair strand for touchable volume
  • Instantly provides touchable volume, moldable texture and flexible hold on dry hair
  • Makes style flexible and remoldable, so hair is never stiff or frozen and remains touchable and revivable for up to 48 hours

For fine to medium hair with layers. Sulfate-free, silicone-free and oil-free. Safe for color and chemically treated hair.

(2.0 oz.)
Rub a small dab of Amp evenly between hands until the product is transparent. Apply to clean, dry hair starting in the underneath sections of hair. Lift and muss hair as you work it in to desired style. Avoid direct application to scalp or applying in a downward motion.

    Comments about Living Proof Amp2 Instant Texture Volumizer:

    I have fine hair with slight thinning in the crown. I also have a layered cut. I bought this to give my layers separation and texture so my top thinning would be less noticeable. It gives me a lot of volume but not as much separation as I would like. Other products that give better separation are too heavy for my hair and tend to make it look flat. So, I guess I can't have both, volume and separation. It smells great and doesn't make your hair stiff and you can "refluff" it throughout the day. Probably won't buy again because of price.

    Comments about Living Proof Amp2 Instant Texture Volumizer:

    I DID NOT like this the first 2 times I used it. It made my hair feel gummy and heavy. But I had read great reviews, so I was willing to try it again. Turns out, the gross, gunky way it made my hair feel was totally user error. I have short hair, so I need to use less than a dime-sized amount. When you dip the cream out of the container, rub it between your hands until it is completely clear. Then (and this is where I went wrong), rub it through your hair from roots to ends, and KEEP rubbing until you can't feel any product. Once you think you're done spreading it through your hair, do it a few more times. If you use the product correctly (and use the right amount for your hair length), you shouldn't feel like you have anything in your hair, but it will give amazing volume, hold, and texture.

        I took this back to the store for a refund. I have a cupboard full of worthless thickening products. From now on, if it doesn't work as described, I'm taking it back. Is there a product out there that will thicken my fine, limp hair?

        Hair was full of body on the first day

        Comments about Living Proof Amp2 Instant Texture Volumizer:

        I have very fine hair, and this products works good on the first day, however the 2nd day hair was flat and greasy, so you may want to use less on the first day to keep from washing on the 2nd day.

            I use it after my hair is blow out. Make sure that it's absorbed into the palm of your hands (after it's totally invisible to you) before you apply it to your hair.

            • 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.

                A:

                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.
