        My hair is wavy, frizzy, and med thickness. Lately is has been dull and difficult to style. This product completely changed that!!! My hair was full, soft, and shiny. Did not feel weighed down or tacky like other products. I felt like I had healthy hair like I did when I was young!

              I love this product takes very little to get the job done. I have crazy thick curly hair and it normally takes at least three different products to make my hair somewhat presentable and it is a beast within a few hours. This makes my hair looks fantastic and last all day.

                I wash my hair every 3 days and use this product to sculpt my short hair into my desired style. The next 2 days I just wet my hair and style. No need to use more product. It holds well without the stiffness of other products.

                    It took me about a week to get used to this product, but now I love it! I have lots of fine, wavy hair so finding something that wasn't sticky was hard. This was recommended to me and can't imagine life without it now. The only reason it took me a week to figure it out is because I don't ever do much to my hair.

                          PhD Styling Treatment has been formulated specifically to give the ideal balance of all five benefits women seek in beautiful, healthy looking hair: smoothness, volume, conditioning, strength and polish. It is not about concentrating on any one benefit in particular, but rather the combination of all five. No Frizz is designed to eliminate frizz by helping to block humidity.

                        I love every product I've tried so far. I have really fine hair, and worried about breakage and thinning. Can I use this with the thickening creme? Thus far, I'm using the dry shampoo, volume blast, and just purchased the pre-shampoo treatment and thickening creme. My next purchase will be the full shampoo and conditioner and 5 in 1 styling product, I think. Volume, as well as keeping my fine, color treated hair healthy. Would this be a good idea for both?

                          PhD Night Cap is an overnight treatment meant to provide shiny, vibrant, and more manageable hair while you sleep. It's meant to be washed out in the morning and has no hold. PhD 5-in-1 Styling Treatment is a styler that provides smoothness, volume, conditioning, strength and polish in one product. They can absolutely be used together with Night Cap as your overnight treatment and 5-in-1 Styling Treatment as your all in one styler.
