    Comments about Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Conditioner:

    After over a month of use not only was my hair fall increasing but I noticed a significant amount of split ends, which I rarely have! I felt that this product gave a plastic build up that eventually led to damaging my hair :o( I had to change to my previous salon brand JoicoKPak to save my poor hair!

          Comments about Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Conditioner:

          I've got wavy mid back length hair, and slight ringlet at the very bottom usually. This is gave my much more ringlet like hair, even my oblivious husband noticed that my hair was different! I don't like the shape of the bottom and it is difficult to get out but at least you don't need much of either the shampoo or conditioner. My hair is definitely very frizzy which was definitely this line of products doing because I used my old stuff to make sure. This stuff is quite pricey and I doubt I'd pay full price for this, I bought this using a coupon with no exclusions and found it at the NEX for cheaper, so maybe if I still love it after a couple weeks I'll invest in the big bottles :)

          I wanted to love this line, in fact I did love how shiny my hair was! However after a month of use I started to get large white flakes all over my scalp and it was insanely itchy!! I needed to use more and more of the shampoo just to get any kind of suds, and with the conditioner my hair was difficult to brush through. I also noticed more hair fall. I loved the smell! and my hair was shiny and thicker...but I won't be paying that insane price tag for and itchy, flaky scalp! Back to my fav salon brand AG!

                It's my daily go-to (their shampoo line as well)! I have stick straight fine hair, but I have a lot of hair. This conditioner works! It doesn't leave my hair feeling heavy, greasy or like it has a residue. I feel it washes cleanly yet still manages to detangle. I swear it makes my blow dry routine easier/better. Overall I literally have better hair days when I use this. It also keeps your hair cleaner longer. I always HAD to shampoo daily, to keep major grease at bay. But the shampoo (and conditioner) makes the clean last two days. It worth the price at the end of the day. Love, scratch that, need this line in my life from now on.

                    A:

                    If you have dry hair, we'd recommend you extend shampooing for as long as possible. You could do that with our PhD Dry Shampoo. Irritated scalp can be sensitive to any type of cleansing, so it may take time for it to normalize, and letting it rest might be the best option. With that said, if your hair is really damaged, consider using Restore Shampoo and Restore Conditioner, if it's only somewhat damaged, consider PhD Shampoo & Conditioner. We also suggest using a product like PhD Night Cap to help bring your back to a healthier looking state faster.

                • Q:

                  I currently use the PhD shampoo and love it. My hair is very oily at the scalp and this helps keep my hair clean longer. I've been growing my hair longer and now the ends are becoming very dry and dull. Should I use the PhD conditioner also or the Restore conditioner?

                    A:

                    We'd recommend using the PhD Conditioner in conjunction with the PhD Shampoo that you already use. They're meant to work together to keep the hair smooth, hydrated and cleaner longer. Also try PhD Fresh Cut (Item #: 2301744) to keep your ends smooth in-between trims!

                    We recommend Timeless Conditioner instead of PhD, this will be more fortifying and has amino acids to help strengthen your hair and will not weigh the hair down.

                  Hi, I have coarse, curly, frizzy hair. I get it colored for grey every 4 weeks and Japanese straightening every 6 months. It's 85 percent grey. Right now it's feeling and looking brittle and dull. It breaks easily. While I like joico shampoo and conditioner I need more intensive repair. What shampoo and conditioner, etc. do you recommend ? It seems like I have no oil or lustre. Thanks so much l! Btw ! I am from India (so you'll understand my hair type).
