Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo

Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo cleans beyond ordinary dry shampoos. It's powered by Living Proof's patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA) and Triple-Action Cleaning Technology that:
  • Absorbs and removes oil, sweat and odor
  • Makes your hair look, feel and smell clean
  • Works on all hair colors because it leaves virtually no visible residue or powdery build-up behind
  • Has a time-released fragrance to deliver a light, clean scent throughout the day

Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo is ideal for all hair types. It is silicone-free. Safe and formulated for color and chemically treated hair.

"Dry Shampoo" has been a bit of a misnomer as products on the market haven't actually cleaned your hair. The powder-based formulas soak up oil often leaving behind a dirty residue you can see and feel. That's not clean hair - that's just dirty hair in hiding. Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo's Triple-Action Cleaning Technology tackles the three dimensions of clean hair: how it looks, how it feels, and how it smells.
  • Fast-absorbing powders soak up oil and sweat
  • Living Proof's patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA) reduces the surface friction on hair, so it's easy to remove the powders that have absorbed the oil and sweat in your hair
  • Odor neutralizers eliminate less desirable smells and time-release fragrance releases a light, clean scent all day long.

CLICK HERE to see how Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo works
Shake can extremely well for maximum cleaning results. Hold canister about 6-10" away from dry hair. Section thoroughly and apply product in a sweeping motion to dirty and oily areas. Wait 30 seconds for the powders to activate and cleanse. Then remove by massaging and shaking at roots with fingers or brush hair. Apply more if needed, make sure to shake can again. Style as desired.

Tips & Tricks: See white residue? A little residue that can be removed easily is normal (that's the cleaning in the works). If you experience more than that, make sure you shake the can and hold the can farther from your head.

Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo:

I often find myself creating this masterpiece of a hairstyle and want to keep it for a few days. My hair is naturally curly and frizzy and, at times, flat ironing my hair and styling it can be a challenge. This product allows me to keep a hair style for a few days and with a few sprays of this dry shampoo on my part line and around my face, I'm looking refreshed and ready to go! Please note this product sprays on white. I choose to blend the product in very little as I have white blonde hair and this helps hide the color of my roots.

      Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo:

      This dry shampoo is by far the best I have ever tried!!! It smells clean and truly does what it says it will. It looks as if I just blew out my hair after washing it. It removes oil and adds volume to my roots. I followed the directions and shook the can extremely well before applying 6-10 inches from my roots. It does come out white but wait 30 seconds for it to work it's magic and massage into your scalp. There is no way I am buying any other dry shampoo ever again!! Buy this!!!!

              I've never been dissapointed by a Living Proof product, this is no exception. Leaves no residue (after waiting and brushing through), smells great, works well and doesn't dry/irritate my scalp. There's a VERY noticeable difference between this and drugstore brands, and I will definitely repurchase.

                        If you are looking for a product to help with your color we suggest the Timelesss Pre-Shampoo treatment. Using dry shampoo will help with dirt and oils, therefore washing your hair less which is better for color treated hair!

                      Does this leave a white residue? Or is it clear?

                        A:

                        It's not a clear formula, so some white residue, that is easy to remove, is normal and expected—especially if you have dark hair. To remove the white residue, rub and massage hair with fingers and/or use brush. A boar's bristle brush will be the most efficient in removing the powders. If white residue still exists, use a blow dryer.
