Living Proof Full Thickening Cream is a lightweight styling cream that adds thickness to each strand to help fine, flat hair to look, feel and behave like naturally full, thick hair.

Full Thickening Cream is ideal for fine, flat hair. It is silicone-free. Safe and formulated for color and chemically treated hair. The Full System transforms fine, flat hair to look and behave like naturally full, thick hair.

      I have a short haircut and straight hair - this product is wonderful. A little bit tousled into damp hair and after blow drying my hair is much easier to style and I get great volume. It really just makes my hair "behave".

      Comments about Living Proof Full Thickening Cream:

      I have straight thin hair almost down to my shoulder and blow drying for lift dies when I go out the door. I have been using this product for a long time. This product is kind of expensive for this little container, so I try other things but I always come back. The key is to follow the direction of a small pea size amount, and not think that more is better. More is just wasted and it tends to make your hair feel a little sticky anyway. Highly recommend.

                • Staff Expert

                  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.

I'm unclear whether I would use this Full Thickening Cream WITH the Perfect Hair Day treatment or IN PLACE OF it. Which will do more for my hair?

                  We recommend to continue using PhD 5-in-1 Styling Treatment from root to tip and then use a small amount of the Full Thickening Cream from mid-shaft to ends for increased volume.
