For use on all curls, whether they're wavy, curly or coily.

Recommend regimens by curl type:

  • For all curl types: In need of extra conditioning, use No Frizz Leave In Conditioner
  • Wavy hair: Curl Conditioning Wash, Curl Detangling Rinse and Curl Enhancing Syling Mousse
  • Curly hair: Curl Conditioning Wash, Curl Detangling Rinse and Curl Defining Styling Cream

Use it with:

  • Living Proof Curl Detangling Rinse
  • Living Proof No Frizz Leave In Conditioner

The Science:

The problem: The majority of curly haired women cocktail 5+ products simultaneously to control their curls. All that product creates build up which makes your care routine even more important. Yet it¿s hard to find a reliable in-shower routine. Cleansing conditioners only focus on conditioning strands, not cleaning them, and weekly clarifying shampoos are drying and amplify frizz.

The solution: Curl Conditioning Wash delivers the perfect balance of cleaning and conditioning - in one step.
Powered by Extended Curl Memory technology featuring our patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA), an optimized emollient and polymer blend and time-release conditioners that:

  • Repels humidity for superior frizz protection. Curls last 2x longer.
  • Provides residue-free cuticle smoothing for long-lasting curl definition
  • Delivers touchable hold for long-lasting, resilient curls

Finally, life-proof curls:  beautiful, frizz free, and defined - and stay that way 2x longer.

Extended Curl Memory technology featuring:

  • OFPMA: Repels humidity for superior frizz protection and keeps hair cleaner, longer.
  • Time-released conditioning: Provides residue-free cuticle smoothing for long-lasting curl definition
  • Optimized balanced emollient and polymer blend: Delivers flexible hold for delivers long-lasting, resilient touchable curls


Wet hair completely, then apply Curl Conditioning Wash. Start at the roots and massage into hair. Add more product mid-strands to ends. Make sure you've applied enough product to cover hair from roots to ends. Massage through and rinse. Follow with the water-activated Curl Detangling Rinse to detangle hair. If you need more conditioning, we recommend using our No Frizz Leave-In Conditioner. Style with a Curl Styler.

      Comments about Living Proof Curl Conditioning Wash:

      Bought the travel size kit of the curl complete series. Loved this conditioning wash. It's a conditioner cleanser so it does not lather. It's meant to condition & cleanse at the same time. It is not a shampoo so there will be no suds or lather, but it absolutely cleans your hair. Massage it into your scalp like the directions say. I use it in between actual shampoos for my permed hair color treated hair.

          Comments about Living Proof Curl Conditioning Wash:

          This is the only "cream" non-lathering type of shampoo I've used. I bought the sample box because it said for curly hair. I realized w/in just a few days that my hair was quite shiny and felt thicker. I don't know that it ads curl but does a good job cleaning disgustingly dirty hair (I work in a horse barn). Love the shampoo, like the leave in conditioner, not sure about the rinse yet.

                          I like to use this shampoo every other time, in between shampooing with a gentle low sulfate shampoo. If I use it each time, it does seem to make my hair look heavy and greasy the next day. Perfect though for every other time. 1 star removed as it does seem over priced.

                              A:

                              Curl Conditioning Wash does contain a very small amount of an organic-based cleansing peptide. It is not at all like traditional proteins which create a heavy feeling on the hairs surface.
                              We chose this ingredient because of its unique combination of high performance and functionality. Importantly, this ingredient does not act at all like traditional proteins, as it helps clean hair and helps make Curl Conditioning Wash much more light weight vs. other conditioning washes. Further, we believe it is fine for hair characterized with low porosity. As opposed to traditional proteins which are not at all appropriate for 'low porosity.'

                              All Living Proof products can be mixed and matched to address specific concerns.

                              To protect hair from damage from heat styling, we suggest Blowout (Item #: 2287210) or Restore Instant Protection (Item #: 2276276), both of which protect hair up to 450 degrees F.

                              No Frizz Weightless Styling Spray (Item #: 2247773) is also a great option for those with fine, frizz-prone hair, and it can be layered with either heat protectant product. It is formulated with Living Proof's patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA), which blocks humidity 70% better than silicones and oils.

                              The product does have light cleaning elements to it so it will help deal with oily scalp. It might actually work very well since it's not too stripping and won't promote sebum production. Too much stripping can lead to more sebum production as your scalp tries to rebalance it. You should try it! Curl Detangling Rinse, when used in conjunction, will help with breakage and knots. Use it after the Conditioning Wash. Apply generously to wet hair and run hair under water run activate detangling. Rinse well. We hope this helps!
