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

    My hair is so important to me. My hair is over 2 ft long, thick, dry, and wavy. On top of that, I have sensitive skin. About a year ago I gave up shampoo and was happy to see my hair not so dry anymore. The conditioner I used for years left my hair feeling so heavy with buildup and I was allergic to the avocado oil in it. I set out to find a conditioner that would leave my hair feeling soft and moisturized without weighing it down and giving me a rash. After trying 15 different conditioners that were much cheaper I finally splurged on this. It's (almost) everything I wanted in a conditioner. My hair feels soft and clean and light and my back, neck, and the skin on my face around my hairline has cleared up. My only complaint is the God-awful smell. I put rose water in my hair to try to mask it but that barely works. Overall it's an awesome product, though.

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

          This conditioner left my hair feeling dry, tangled and far from shiny. It almost felt like there was a residue on it, I couldn't even run my fingers through my hair. I used this 3 times and it kept getting worse. I have used other types of this brand but the "Perfect Hair Day" left my hair far from perfect. Never again. Do not recommend for long, thick hair.

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

                I've used this conditioner (and shampoo) for about 6 months and I love them both. I like the smell and feel it really improves the health and texture of my hair. I use the shampoo & conditioner together 2-3 times a week and use a dry shampoo in between, and I always get compliments from my hairstylist of how smooth and healthy my hair is. This conditioner is one of my favorite beauty products and is worth the extra money.

                My only con is that it can be REALLY challenging to get it out of the 8oz bottle when there isn't much left.

                        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?

                          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.

                          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!
