          Eliminates the need for conditioner or other styling product. Adds body without being sticky or coating my hair. Makes it easy to get more than one day out of a style. Fighting to get style out of stick straight, fine hair is over. I've found my product.

                    Helps manage my pin-straight hair on blow-out days. Makes hair full & bouncy but you need to completely dry your hair with heat in order to benefit from full effect. I feel like I have to wash my hair more often when I use this products

                        What is the difference between using this product vs. the No Frizz Styling Cream? I have medium-length mostly straight hair that feels dry and frizzy and would like it to be softer and smoother. Thank you.

                          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.

                      • Q:

                        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.
