Options

Traditional products that provide thickness use brittle ingredients that create volume but break down with the slightest touch. Full Thickening Cream is powered by living Proof patented Volumizing Molecule (PBAE) which:

  • Deposits a flexible micropattern of thickening dots on each strand
  • Creates touchable thickness and volume that lasts all day without collapsing or becoming stiff
  • Leaves volume between each strand to help hair feel thicker


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

Apply a pea sized amount of Full Cream to clean, damp hair, starting just beyond the roots to ends. Less is more when using Full Cream so start small and build. Blow dry to activate, using a round brush to create even more volume.
Water/Eau/Aqua, Polyalkylaminoester-1 (PBAE), Fragrance/Parfum, Polyacrylate-13, Xanthan Gum, Polyisobutene, PPG-2 Myristyl Ether Propionate, Oleth-10, Polysorbate 20, Myristyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Methylisothiazolinone, Linalool, Citronellol, Limonene, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Citral, Geraniol.

            i'm a big fa of IT's a 10 products, especially the miracle leave in with Keratin, but it's getting hard to find it. This product is a great substitute--in fact, I think I may like it better! My hair is very fine, has a lot of wave, and tends to frizz. Using this along with the No Frizz line from Living Proof really makes me happy - my hair is thicker and fuller seeming, and the frizz is minimal if not gone. Will definitely buy it again.

                  Followed the advice of someone on You Tube and applied a root lifter first and then the Thickening Cream avoiding the root area and then styled. Works great.

                            The cream texture of this product may make it a bit difficult to use as a root lifter, though it does add volume and body to hair for the appearance of full, thick hair. Instead (or in conjunction), you may prefer to use Full Root Lifting Hairspray, which can be sprayed directly at the roots of your hair for ultimate lift:

                            Since you have fine hair, if you are seeking to create volume and fullness, we definitely recommend using Full Thickening Cream! Similar to PHD, Full Thickening Cream features a lightweight formula that is free of silicones and oils, so it is ideal for fine, thin hair. You can even mix the two products together (called "cocktailing") to reap the benefits of both products. All Living Proof products are completely safe to use on color-treated hair.
