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:

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.

                    Comments about Living Proof Curl Conditioning Wash:

                    So i have waited to use the entire bottle before giving my review. I absolutely love my hair with this product. For a no-poo your hair really feels clean! That said, it is about it. It is far too expensive if you have long and thick hair like me. It takes far too much time to wash it all out. The times I was in a bit of a rush, i had to chose, do I skip washing my hair (knowing it will take forever to wash out), do I just wash the best I can quickly (this led to nasty build up). So unfortunately, this l line has lost my sale. I hope that my honesty helped.

                        Comments about Living Proof Curl Conditioning Wash:

                        I would definitely recommend trying the sample sizes of the Living Proof curl line before investing more money. This definitely didn't work for me. My hair is wavy in the front and has large loose curls in the back and is usually normal to dry. After using this product my hair looked matted down and oily near the roots, and the curls looked lifeless and droopy. I tried it a few more times both with and without the rinse, but always with the same results.

                        I had bought the starter kit, and was happy that I hadn't spent the money on a large bottle. This was just too heavy for my hair.

                            I have fine, dry, color treated, curly hair and have been advised to use the Curl line over Restore and No Frizz.

Also, what about humid climates where my hair tends to really frizz, which product then?

                              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!
