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.

        Great to use. I have fine wavy short hair. I put a pea sized amount on, let my hair dry, mess it up and use a little dry paste. I love it.

        Comments about Living Proof Full Thickening Cream:

        I've used this product for a few years now and I love it. You use a minimal amount on the ends of your hair, (be sure not to use on the roots) and it makes your hair feel much thicker and volumized. I find that if I don't use it, my hair goes flat by the end of the day. This helps to keep your style longer. I'm in my 50's, so my hair seems to be thinning a little. This product helps make my hair appear fuller. It is a little on the pricey side, but you only use a small amount, so it lasts a while and is worth it.

                          A:

                          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:

                          A:

                          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.
