      I wash and blow dry every day. This styling treatment helps protect from the heat of the dryer and also helps minimize frizz so that I don't have to use a straightener to smooth out as often. There are tons of products out on the shelves and I've tried many of them, both expensive and inexpensive. This treatment works best for my dry, aging, fine to medium hair. I use it after shampooing and conditioning with Living Proof Restore and it works great!

        I've tried every leave in conditioning and styling treatment. This one is great for my naturally curly, frizzy, damaged hair. Don't use too much it's not needed. My hair is so much more easier to style even when blowing out dry is is really great stuff. I recommend it.

          I bought the sample a size because I was 99% sure it wouldn't work on my thick, fine wavy hair that's frizzy and goes flat at the same time. Unbelievable product! I put a pea size amount in my just washed damp hair. At first it felt a little greasy and heavy, until blow dried it. No frizz, no dryness, not weighed down, just full, fluffy, shiny, bouncy hair. I used anti humidity spray after I styled and I still can't believe how amazing my hair looks and feels. Pricey but worth it.

              Comments about Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) 5-in-1 Styling Treatment:

              I have gray hair that ranges from very curly on the top to mildly wavy to straight elsewhere. Although I have always had thick hair, I am experiencing geriatric hair thinning at the crown of my head now--ugh. I have used a Pureology styler for years to help control the excess curl, but it is now drying/dulling and flakes. Must be the change in texture with graying. The Living Proof is a wonderful product: light, effective, no flaking or dulling, provides volume for up to three days. Highly recommended. I loaned it to my sister-in-law who has had female balding most of her life. I don't know yet how it works for her, but it seems it will be as good for her, even with thinner hair, as it is for me.

                I used this after reading a magazine review. Wow. Just wow. Applied minimally, blow dry (or not), curl.... holds all day. Even with a mousse my hair tends to get weighed down and look greasy by the end of the day because it's just so fine and then I have to wash it every day. But this product looks great all day even after sleeping on it. I'm a believer!! Truth be told that my hair looked better and better after several uses.

                    • 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.
