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

    My hair was smoother, shinier, more manageable, with noticably more volume and fewer flyaways after using this product only one time (in conjunction with Perfect Hair Day shampoo). As a person who has been known to drop $50 plus on deep conditioners, I am super impressed that a daily type conditioner gave me such amazing results!

        This conditioner did not condition my hair at all. After so many good reviews I was hoping I had spent my money well. NOPE. My hair was straw and I thought I had ruined my hair! Back to my old conditioner and I swear in ONE day back to normal. For the price this should make hair healthy but there's nothing healthy about this!

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

            I used this shampoo and conditioner combination for about a week and half and just couldn't do it anymore. This made my hair so oily and left residue so bad around my roots. I kept giving it a try and used a lot less thinking maybe I had used to much product the first time but nope, same thing each and every time. I got sick of having to rescue my hair with other products and gave up on it. I love other living proof products so I'm surprised and disappointed.

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

            I really wanted to like this conditioner since I like the shampoo so much, but it is awful. I have naturally straight, fine, thin hair. The conditioner completely dried it out and made it frizzy and straw-like, especially at the ends where it was a super poofy and dried mess the last few inches (something I have never experienced with my hair and I am 26). I would recommend something more hydrating to use after the shampoo.

                  My hair looks greasy if I don't wash it everyday, but with this I can go at least 2 days no problem. Doesn't leave a bad residue on my hair, but has a light and clean feel. I don't color/apply a ton of heat to my hair, and this still has it looking noticeable healthier.

                        I gave this conditioner an average rating. I bought the PhD shampoo and conditioner at the same time, and they're both in the trash. The PhD shampoo stripped my hair...think the harshest clarifying shampoo experience you've ever had, and this shampoo fit the bill. By the end of the week, I just thought, "good luck conditioner, you're gonna need it" when I applied the conditioner to my hair. I flipped my hand over, and what did I see? A handful of broken hair. Again, I used both the shampoo and conditioner for one week, and had so much hair going down the drain it was scary. I have fine, straight, heat styled, color treated and highlighted hair. I haven't experienced a product like this in years. I think this conditioner tries to do a good job. But how can the conditioner even have a chance to help anybody's hair when it tries to follow the awful PhD shampoo? Never ever will I buy this stuff again. This stuff went straight into the trash.

                            Perfect hair Day (PhD) is for anyone that wants more perfect hair days. Whether you have multiple hair concerns or consider yourself to have "normal" hair, PhD is for someone that seek a balance of smoothness, volume, conditioning, strength and polish.

                          I have been using Living Proof PhD for over a year now and I absolutely love it. I wash my hair about every 2 days but flat iron every day. My hair seems like it's getting more dry, or not as soft as it used to be. Should I switch something else, or is there a leave in product I can add to my routine?

                            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.

                            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!
